Most Helpful Positive Review My Favorite Foundation...EVER!!!
For years I was searching for a foundation that actually matched me and I found this a little over a year ago and I fell IN LOVE with it! It's so pigmented and just lays beautifully on every skin color (I also work for Ulta so I shade match this A LOT). My recommendation for primers would be the Hangover primer by Too Faced because I will tell you one thing: if you have really dry skin like I do, this foundation MUST have a moisturizing primer. Like seriously moisturizing. No serums or primers with silicone. For starters, it doesn't stick well with silicones and honestly, most silicone primers aren't good because they give your makeup a perfect surface to slip off of. Because of this foundation's matte finish and drying effect, having a moisturizing primer, even if your skin tends to be on the combination to slightly oily side, it helps counteract the matte finish and gives you a full coverage matte look without a cakey feeling or the scaling dry skin effect. Also, this foundation will work as a more natural foundation with very little product. For full coverage, maybe three pumps. But I used to use four and that was too much and I ended up wasting product. For a light look, no more than one and a half. And even that can be too much because it really is meant to be full coverage. But if you are looking for something that can be somewhat of an in between, this will work for you. And lastly, set it with powder! If you want it to last, it will if you use a moisturizing primer (if your oily and have big pores, Benefit's Porefessional works wonders. It's not super moisturizing so it might do you good to combine the Hangover and Porefessional because again, YOU NEED A MOISTURIZING PRIMER) and a good setting powder. I personally like the Dermablend translucent loose setting powder, but for those with beautiful dark complexions, I recommend the Cover FX loose setting powder. But starting off well and ending well will make this foundation work like a dream on your skin!
Most Helpful Critical Review Still disappointed....why try to fix what wasn't broken?
After a few months of giving the Teint Idole Ultra 24H a chance, I'm still just as upset as the first time I tried it - this foundation is a disaster. I am a long time devoted wearer of the previous, perfect Teint Idole 14 Hour formula. The prior 14 hour formula was absolutely fantastic, I'd never experienced a more perfect foundation, the holy grail. It provided flawless, full coverage that somehow felt light yet covered my large pores. I was astounded when Lancome replaced it with this horrific 24Hour spackle that doesn't even resemble the prior formula. This 24 Hour foundation is heavy, sticky, sinks into pores and emphasizes them, and what's most startling is that it doesn't last as long as the 14 H formula! It is more difficult to blend even after trying different methods, it makes no difference, it's not even comparable to the prior formula. I tried several different shades to most closely match my beloved 14 H and found one that was fine. But this new 24H formula is so disappointing, my face just doesnt look the same. Ok, seems a little silly to be so frustrated about a foundation, but truly this new formula took away a foundation that was tried, true, and dependable. Now my search continues and I will have to look beyond Lancome. PLEASE bring back the previous formula that , from other reviews, apparently many, many other women dearly miss as well!

I will buy this over and over, it gives a more natural look
Nothing like I thought it would be
Debbie from Tampa, FL
Runny and nothing like the brand I asked the associate to try and find something similar. The color was also way off and not able to try on so now I have to go back to the store to return. What a royal pain to do that and still not sure what will be the right "color/number" until I can try it on.
This has been my go to for about 3 years now. Love it!
Amber from Longview, Tx
This is my soul foundation that I use and have used for about 3 years. I struggled before to find one that would last all day, not be too heavy, and wouldn't break me out. Since using this one, I don't even want to find another foundation.
Worth the price.
Gambit16 from 52003
I currently have nine foundations collecting dust because none of them live up to the hype nor wear like this foundation does. Like most I seen the price tag and thought to myself "absolutely not". But unfortunately I couldn't find anything that lasted all day on my oily skin. I also knew if I didn't like it I was able to bring it back. I absolutely would recommend this over and over and over again! Full coverage but yet feels super lightweight. Doesn't transfer to my mask or clothes nearly as much as my other foundations. It also does not oxidize which is a huge blessing for me and my face does not look oily after wearing it for over 12 hours at work. Absolutely buy it!!!

Great foundation! If u want a full coverage look with no caking and fake looking, then get this! Comes in a lot of foundation shades. Love this!!
The best of the vest
Amanda from VA
Once you find your perfect shade, you'll never go back. I adore this foundation. I have a lot of imperfections on my skin from teenage acne and this just looks beautiful over them. Very buildable. If I am wearing my mask all day I won't waste this precious stuff underneath it because it is pricey, but when my face is out man I love it.
mountainaire from Rancho Murieta, CA
I have used Lancome foundation for years and really like it. This time I bought a slightly darker shade since I thought my previous shade looked a little light. Make up is easy to use and stays on, though there is some residual on the mask since we are in the Covid restrictions.
Love this product! Perfect on my skin!

Everything is great

Medium to full coverage..
Glides on and covers beautifully
Teresa from Nantucket
This is one of the best foundations you can buy. I've tried many over the years but I always come back to this. A good foundation with sun screen protection will benefit your skin years down the road.
Not full coverage
Martha from Avondale Az
It's not full coverage as it's mentioned but leaves skin looking nice. Not what I expected but looks nice.
Lina from Texas
Started using this foundation 3 years ago and have received so many compliments and questions about what foundation I use. It is medium to full coverage but it is so light weight, you can build it up if needed. It is long lasting and worth every penny!
I'm in trouble
Abby from ATL
I recently tried a sample of this,, and Of course this had to come up right when I was trying to spend less money on makeup! This stuff is amazing. In general, I wear light coverage, more satin to dewy products like tinted moisturizers and bb creams. But I wanted to have a good-quality foundation for nice occasions or days when I want a little more coverage. This stuff is perfect. I was a little hesitant to try a matte foundation again because I did that whole ordeal in high school in college when I had super oily skin and wore super matte foundations that made me look flat and ghostly. This has the most beautiful medium (buildable) coverage that truly looks like skin - a dimensional, satin, lit-from-within, baby-smooth finish. And the lasting power, holy cow! Applied at 11, removed at 7:30, and it still looked fresh, so I have no doubt that it will still look good/decent at 10+ hrs. Can't wait to buy this!
Best foundation I've ever tried
Brittney from Wisconsin
This foundation is perfect because it's not too heavy yet it still has great coverage without looking cakey. I would 100% recommend this to anyone and everyone.
I love this product!
Marian from Asheville, NC
I was in Ulta trying to purchase Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation. A beauty advisor asked if I knew about Lancôme Teint Idole? I bought some and it wears all day under a mask! It's medium to full coverage with a ski like finish. I'm in love with my new foundation.
Cj from Denver
I love this foundation it looks amazing it last all day with out cracking no issues what's so ever on the way it look through the day and it doesn't feel Cakey. How ever my only but is the shade range . I use almond in too faced born this way a light color with a yellow under tone the only similar color is 140 n but it looks pink on me wich makes it look to dark so they need to add more yellow tones that's my only complaint. Other then that I love it !!
My favorite foundation for 5 years now I

Light weight full coverage doesn't break me out
Perfect buildable coverage
Tiff from Gonzales, LA
I was initially a little weary about trying to color match online to my skin tone but after taking the quiz and doing a little research I ended up getting a flawless color match - I kinda surprised myself with that actually. My skin is sort of combination with oily and dry areas plus some redness. It had great coverage without drying my skin out or making it oily. This foundation just has such a great balance for me. It has a natural finish but you can build it to increase your coverage which I also love. I use this with a matte primer and it looks great. Highly recommend!
Smooth as Butter!
Jo from Chicago, IL
This foundation feels so comfortable on my face. I actually have to really stop myself from touching my face because it's so smooth! I do use a primer, but I'm very happy with this foundation.
makeuplvr from Oklahoma
I used to love this foundation but lately when wearing it (just bought a new bottle to restock my last) it seems like it dries my face out sooo much. Cracks all around my nose and mouth and makes my under eyes look really dry and flakey? Maybe I just need to stick to this in the summer months and not in the winter when my skin is a littler dryer? I don't know. I do think it has a nice finish, however I would describe it as somewhat powdery even though the highlights of this say no powdery finish.
Not full coverage

It's ok, but I'd rather pay this kind of money for a foundation that is actually full coverage

For the price it isn't worth it. Definitely returning.
Found my new foundation holy grail!
Mommashaub from Madison, Wi
In my almost 41 years of life I have tried my fair share of foundations, from drug store brands to extremely expensive ones. I have found ones I've been some what happy with, but none that I was blown away by or willing to spend a lot of money on again, until I found Lancôme!
I have combo skin, my T zone (so forehead and nose) tend to get dry in the winter, and my chin seems to always be more oily (my cheeks never seem to give me issues lol), so it was always hard to find a foundation that didn't get to cakey over the dry areas, but not shiny over the oily spots. But this foundation, makes my skin glow and makes it look flawless! My pores (yes even at almost 41 I have them!) are hard to see and I feel unstoppable in it! I can not say enough good things about it (and no I'm not getting paid or was paid to purchase or write this review).
This is one foundation, that once my bottle is gone, I will be going back and buying it again. It is 100%, in my opinion, worth every penny!
Fatima from Fresno
This is the the most expensive and worst foundation I have ever purchased. I tried to give it 0 stars. I've been wearing this inside & on top of a good primer for about an hour now & it's cracked on my entire face. This foundation is great if you already have perfect skin. DO NOT RECOMMEND AT ALL.
Definitely worth the money!
Kessel from North Dakota
I have tried so many different foundations and this is hands down the best i have ever used!
