I talk a lot about multi-tasking products on this blog, products with
more than one function just make life that bit simpler for lazy buggers
like me. When I heard Lancome were releasing a new foundation
I was ecstatic joy, you see Lancome are my favourite beauty brand,
and they have been for a very long time, Teint Idole is my all time
favourite foundation, I recommend it to everyone who will listen, So
when I learned that their new foundation would contain my all time
favourite skincare I actually squeeeeeled, what made it worse was I
had to keep it under my hat, yes, I had all this new info and I couldn't
share it with the world as I had to sign a confidentiality agreement,
but that embargo has been lifted now and I am ready to share
this wonderful product with the world.
Teint Visionnaire sits in a heavy glass bottle that lends to the expensive
feel of the product, the large lid is home to a separate concealer with
its very own little mirror.
Let me fill you in on the sciencey bit of this foundation, they don't
call this the first high tech foundation for nothing, for the ingredient
that Lancome created in ther very own labs [LR2412] which is used
in there top selling product Visionnaire Anti-Ageing Serum, is now found in
The shade I have here is 01. its just one shade darker than my normal 010
but the foundation blends so beautifully that you would hardly notice.
The concealer needs to be warmed up a little in the pan, I just run my
finger over it a few times then apply with a flat concealer brush,
I prefer to wear concealers like this under my foundation, but I am
sure you will find a way that works for you.
The foundation is a thin and fluid consistency I thought for sure this
would offer sheer minimal coverage, but I was wrong, I found the
coverage to be exceptional, while still feeling light on the skin.
The finish is neither matte nor radiant, but a mixture of both
if that makes sense, it makes for a really natural flawless finish.
Teint Visionnaire is suitable for all skin types and perfect for
ladies of any age, but I can really see mature and dry skin benefit greatly
from this, with the Anti-Ageing ingredients and light hydrating
formula you would be on to a winner here.
