Happy Friday Guys,
Hope all is well,officially done with exams and submissions.That means I can focus my energy on work and of course blogging.With summer up in full swing and with ridiculous high temperatures I thought I should share with you this foundation which has become an absolute fave this summer.So grab something cold and read on…
On hot days I dodge makeup for some reasons,two of those reasons being that no matter how well I set my makeup,it fades always quickly and also just feels too heavy on the skin.Now,I recently attended the Lancôme Masterclass in August(read here) and I received this foundation in my goodie bag.I loved the foundation from the go,and I continued to use it especially on hot days and I’m inlove. Ive never properly reviewed the foundation,so this will be more like a review plus all the reasons I love the foundation.
Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation
The foundation comes in the standard Lancôme silver packaging,the bottle is frosted with a black and gold lid which is so sleek.The foundation comes with a pumping which makes it easier to dispense the packaging.The formula of the foundation is averagely thick and the coverage is buildable.I normally use two layers which gives me good coverage but on days when I need full coverage I use three pumps.What I love mostly about the foundation is that it doesn’t cake and no matter how much coverage I build I still get that flawless skin like finish…
I find this easy to apply with my Lancôme mini foundation brush,which does a great job and doesn’t leave any streaks.With my oily skin I’m forced to bake or use setting powder when I wear this,especially if I’m gonna be having a long day.Oily skin for me means big pores problems,so I prime with my Benefit Porefessional Pearl Pore Primer.I love that it doesn’t make my pores look any bigger and works well with the blurring power of the primer.On very hot days,the foundation lasts for about 8-9 hours with minimal touch ups and that’s coz my skin is very oily.
I’m not trying to hype this product but as someone who has tried high & low end foundations,this is definitely my holy grail foundation and an absolute fave for summer.Its not so friendly on the pocket but it lasts for a while and a little goes a long way.This is definitely worth the splurge and all the coins.
That’s it Loves,what are your go-to foundations for summer?Let me know below
Till the next one
