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!

Color match was great and it lasted. Just felt very dry on my skin. Probably better for oiler skin
Absolutely love this product!
Antonella from MD
With a sponge, beautiful and smooth.
Brit from Cookeville TN
Easy to blend and long lasting
So flawless yet so natural looking
Queen B from Ohio
I have found my new favorite foundation. I have large pores and the occasional blemish and this foundation goes on so smooth. I can't even tell I'm wearing makeup and my skin looks amazing. It's so lightweight and breathable. The coverage is perfection. The formula is airy and moisturizing at the same time. And it lasts all day!!!
Like the coverage but not the finish
MikiC from Livonia,MI
I like the almost full coverage of this foundation. However, the finish is a little shiny. I use a light powder over it to give it a more natural look.
I would definitely buy this foundation again! Worth the $$
Veronica from Riverside, CA
Well this product is very easy to put on i usually only need about two pumps of this and it fully covers my face. Matches my skin pretty good as i always have trouble finding the correct shade for myself.
I have used this product for many many years....

I have used this product for many many years....when I started working at May Company in Montclair , Ca. used it thru Robinson May , Macy, and now Ulta...
Guera from Reno, NV
It's great feels amazing and light weight on my skin but I did get too light
Perfect shade and wear
Maria from Boston, MA
I've never been able to wear liquid foundation (life-long powder user), but since turning 50 this year, was looking to try something lightweight that could even out my aging skin tone and not settle into my fine lines. Finding the right color has been challenging as a light-skinned Hispanic with pink undertone. An Ulta employee recommended this product and helped me find a perfect match (215 Buff Neutral) - it looks natural and is very lightweight, and wears well throughout the day. My skin looks so much better using this product!
Nini from USA
This has become my holy grail. I use this with my strivectin blur primer and it looks flawless! It does oxidize a little so keep in mind when choosing your shade. I got a shade that looks a little light but once it oxidized it was a good match. I will buy this again.
B from College station,Texas
It feels amazing most of the time I don't even know I have it on, and it stays on all day doesn't feel heavy at all, it's a super amazing product totally recommend it
Natural but good coverage & very minimal transfer
Mary from IL
This foundation is worth every penny. The coverage is really nice but still natural looking. And the best part (for 2020 anyway) is that it didn't rub off on the inside of my mask and leave my face looking splotchy or uneven.
5 years later, still my favorite
Jill from Statesville, NC
Blends easy with a beautiful matte finish. Doesn't look dry like some long-wear foundations. It does darken as it drys, so don't freak out if it goes on a little light. Buildable coverage. Bottle lasts 3-4 months with daily use.
Kelsey from San Diego
I do like this foundation but I think there are better ones out there for the price. It does have amazing buildabke coverage, does not feel heavy on the skin and does set down nicely and last through the day but man it dries my skin out. My skin does lean toward the dry side but I haven't had an issue with flaking dry skin in years until I used this. But, I do like the coverage and how it makes my skin look. I'll just use it for evenings, not a full day of wearing.
AGAIN AGAIN AND AGAIN
Blu from Fort Myers
When I tell you this makes my makeup look like skin!!!! Like I have nothing on!!! I have a bad habit of touching my face(i know, I'm the worst HA) but this right here, yooooo it doesn't BUDGE! I think I found a new foundation
Use to b my go to ..Not so sure anymore
Jm from Texas
The product I received( I did not open box in store) had immense amount of settling meaning that it was old. It is going to b exchanged for a new product
I would totally buy it again
Bernice from Texas
I was skeptical about it because I have dry skin but I truly love it. It is not super matte so it works well with my skin. The finish is lovely. I would buy it again. I love it.
I have used this for many years.
Patty from Austin, TX
This goes on very light with great coverage. I love it!
Love this on my skin
Morgan from Mooresville, NC
I've been using Lancôme products for years and love most of their skin care. The Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation is full coverage and does not change orangy as the day goes on as some other brand names that I've tried. I do not have to use a lot of product so it lasts a long time for me. So, although it costs a pretty penny, if you figure it for the length of time it lasts me, it is worth it and cost effective. It also does not feel like I have makeup on. Love it.
Bird Beauty from Minnesota
I loved the finish of this foundation. It blended very seamlessly and felt easy to work with. My only complaint besides the price would be the difficulty in choosing the right shade. The shade dispensed is very light compared to when its applied and dried down. Definitely do your research to see what each shade looks like after setting.
Not what I hoped
Amayes from Cypress, tx
I really wanted to love this foundation. It just isn't for me.. it dried quickly and I had a hard time trying to keep it from looking splotchy. This foundation feels heavier than what I like. I also realized that it oxidizes a ton. I do know some ladies that wear leggings his and it looks amazing on them.
Great all day foundation!
Cat from Colorado
Goes on light and smooth, gives a nice level of coverage and doesn't feel thick at all. Looks very natural.
O would buy it again
Jewel from Avondale Az

Liverbird from WV
