With summer approaching, it’s time to switch up our foundations from dewy, to matte. At least if you’re like me and have combo/oily skin! This is why today we’re going to review the Lancôme Teint Idole Stick Foundation, which can be found at Sephora.
On the Sephora website, this foundation claims to have 24-hour wear, be highly pigmented with high coverage, and have a matte finish.
I can definitely agree that this foundation stick is highly pigmented, and has high coverage, if you build it up. On my days where I want light coverage, I swipe maybe two lines of the foundation on each cheek, one on my forehead, and a little on my chin. Then I blend it in by using a beauty blender.
When it’s a day that I want high coverage, the only thing I do is add more foundation. Meaning, instead of two stripes on each cheek, I’ll do 3 or 4. Usually that’s the only place I add more foundation, as it’s where the most coverage is needed. And I again, use a beauty blender. This foundation blends extremely well with a brush though. What you use simply depends on what your personal preference is.
How it wears:
I’ve tested out this foundation on several occasions, and I can definitely say it’ll last you a good 8 to 10 hours. What I love about the formula is that it goes on very smooth and creamy-like. However, it does not get super dewy or make me look oily. By the end of the day, I do have a tiny bit of shine on my forehead, but not enough for me to look oily. Plus, the best part is that it feels extremely lightweight on the skin. Sometimes I forget I even have foundation on by the end of the day!
So if you’re in the market for a new foundation, I would recommend trying this one out! If you already have it, or have tried out, let us know how it worked for you!
