So today (and yesterday) i've been testing out the new Lancome Paris - Teint Idole Ultra Wear. Now i was lucky enough that when i got this online they has a conversion available so you could see what shade you were by comparing foundation you had bought from other brands. This was a life saver for me. It was pretty much spot on when i got it.
Testing this foundation i needed it to pass 3 tests. 1) It would not rub off on my clothes, 2) It was able to last all day without fail, 3) would not make me break out the next day.
So for the first test obviously it was easy to test. I ended up decided to wear it on a day i knew i would be doing a lot of physical activity at work. So imagine i've done my makeup and i'm now about to put on my work shirt. My hearts pounding as i don't want to dirty it because then its just extra laundry i don't want to have to do. But YAS! I've managed to put my shirt on and not get any foundation on it, now i know you thinking i might have tried everything to not get it on my shirt, but i swear i just threw it over my head and it brushed down by face. So this first test is a win.
Second test up, i've gone all day wearing this lovely foundation which is quite light i might add. Now most of the time i find that some foundations will normally start to scale near the nose, but this did not happen with the Teint Idole Ultra Wear. I was doing a lot of physical activity, but i wasn't sweating like a pig at the gym. Another win, so 2/3 so far.
The third test is really important to me. I find that after shooting, the next day depending on the brand the makeup artist has used, i could end up breaking out really badly. So today comes and we are in the home stretch. I've woken up to not having broken out. My skin is also not overly dry, which is great.
My three important tests have now been passed and i'm happy to say, i'm a happy wearer!! ALSO LADIES! It comes in 40 shades :D
