I used to be barely nervous about the truth that the epic Lancome Teint Idole Extremely Put on basis had been reformulated. And I say epic with not even a touch of irony as a result of it was simply that: only a few excessive protection, extremely longwear foundations got here near it by way of the standard of end, ease of software, shade vary and longevity. The unique Teint Idole lined each blemish and imperfection – no concealer wanted – but it surely someway managed to not obliterate all the life out of your pores and skin on the identical time. It regarded versatile, snug, barely juicy, but additionally gave that excellent, flawless, airbrushed type of end that utterly removes redness, darkish circles, areas of pigmentation. And it had a refined glow, an costly luminescence, but the end was velvety-matte.

And the texture! Oh the texture of the factor. It was cushiony, it didn’t settle into traces, it moved along with your pores and skin…if ever there was a full protection basis for grown-ups then this was it. And so: my nervousness over the reformulation. What would Lancome tweak? What side of the unique components would us diehard followers sob over? How might Lancome enhance upon perfection and a face base that had been round – efficiently – for many years?
Effectively, let me let you know; they’ve. Lancome have taken their Teint Idole Extremely Put on basis and made it simply as complete in protection, simply as cushiony to use and simply as lengthy in wear-time, and so they’ve someway added a load of skincare components into the combination alongside the best way. And have you learnt what? You possibly can truly really feel the distinction.
After per week of day by day testing, with the previous components on one half of my face and the brand new components on the opposite (how I undergo for my artwork) I can categorically let you know that the brand new facet of my face feels repeatedly hydrated all through the day. Extra plumptious. The opposite facet doesn’t really feel dry, as such, it simply feels…regular. There’s a particular distinction. I used to be sceptical past all well mannered purpose concerning the hydrating skincare component of the relaunched components but it surely’s there. And it really works. My new face facet is juicier and extra springy to the contact however with the identical quantity of protection on the pores and skin.
I actually don’t assume that many (if any) Teint Idole customers can be disenchanted with the brand new model. It’s the identical marvellous basis, plus a (very) barely extra hydrating really feel. I personally welcome the extra plumptiousness as a result of I nonetheless get the identical protection however now it feels much more snug and versatile on the pores and skin.
This newly reformulated Lancome Teint Idole Extremely Put on is not to be confused with the brand new Teint Idole Extremely Put on Care & Glow. It’s extremely complicated and I want that Care & Glow was only a completely completely different product line, in a manner – it’s much less protection, extra dew – however you’ll be able to simply inform the 2 foundations aside by wanting on the lids. White for the lighter protection Care & Glow* and black for the higher coverage Idole*.
Apparently, I choose the sensation of the excessive protection Idole on my pores and skin to the Care & Glow. However Care & Glow does give an exemplary stage of high-wattage luminosity – it’s the type of glow stage the place I personally really feel I don’t want a highlighter. (Although as a disclaimer, I do really feel as if highlighter is among the most overused and misused merchandise in all the make-up world. Seems nice for the gram however actually, in actual life, some individuals look completely wild. Like robots. On the very least it simply appears to be like extremely unnatural, which is definitely the alternative of the specified impact.)
I ought to add, as a result of it’s fairly essential, that I exploit little or no product once I’m making use of Teint Idole. It actually doesn’t have to be trowelled on and I believe it appears to be like finest when it’s utilized very evenly, from the centre of the face, and constructed up provided that wanted. One mild coat is sufficient to knock again most blemishes, darkish circles and areas of redness – check out the earlier than and after images:
The only layer of basis, utilized very wispily with a small powder brush and never a flat-topped basis brush, even part-conceals the glasses marks on my nostril. These are all the time a nightmare to disguise, once I’m filming, as a result of they’re pink and indented and only a basic ache within the arse to cope with. No downside for the Teint Idole. And if I’d gone again over with one other little mild coating then I’d have obliterated them utterly.
The images do a reasonably good job of exhibiting the end too: it appears to be like fairly velvety-matt however there’s an actual luminescence that isn’t glittery or shiny however simply…costly wanting. It’s the form of base that actually is a base, coming into its personal because the bronzer goes on, then the blusher… it’s the proper beginning canvas, flawless and clean.

There’s a whopping vary of 45 shades and Lancome have additionally improved on the pigments to create tones which might be all the time flattering and enhancing on the pores and skin. No ashy undertones. I exploit shade 220C – I used to make use of 02 within the previous components which was ever so barely hotter in tone. I’ll do some experimenting subsequent time I’m close to to a counter!
