~ Lancome teint idole ultra 24h REVIEW ~

Browsing around my local Lancome counter, the make-up artist introduced me to their newest addition to their foundation line - The teint idole ultra 24/7 which is perfect for my oily complexion. As i already purchased my Chanel perfection lumiere recently, i was a bit hesitant with buying the full sized product therefore i asked for a colour match and a sample bottle of the foundation. 
The next day, armed with my generous bottle of sample, i applied it all across my face and blended out and to my amazement, i thought it applied really well and gave an amazing finish to my complexion. I must admit, deep down i was thinking "Why did i get my Chanel foundation so soon?!". Even my friend complimented my make-up that day, saying i looked really nice and the foundation suits me and looks really natural (Note: She didn't know i was using a diff foundation) 

What the product claims:
- 24 hour wear and comfort
- Retouch free
- Divine perfection - SPF15
- Oil and transfer free foundation
- Sweat and friction resistance
- Without mask effect
- Suitable for all skin type, even sensitive,
- Dermatologically tested
- Non-Comdogenic

The coverage i would say is medium, but like most foundations, it is buildable to the intensity that you want. The product is a dream to work with as it doesn't set too quickly and gives you enough time to really work the product into your face without it drying and turning into a nightmare where the product just wont budge or blend nicely. I would say, once the product is set, it is 'non-transferable' as stated on its description and that is a positive attribute to have in a foundation seeing you don't want to get foundation marks on all your clothes, especially if your a big fan of white tees or dresses! In addition, when set, i feel that there is not a need for me to set my foundation since when i touch it, it feels matte and non-greasy like the finish that most foundation gives. The scent is nice, but not too over-powering which is a bonus because i don't really like the idea of placing fragranced products onto my sensitive skin in case of irritation. It controls oils very well throughout the day yet it is not drying at all which deserves a major thumbs-up from me because it's just what i've ever wanted in a product!

This foundation is also cheaper than a number of the high end foundations at £27 which i think is really good for the product quality and the finish that it gives. The packaging is in a tall slim bottle with frosted glass which not only makes it look sophisticated, but it is easy for travelling and throwing into your make-up bag without it taking too much space.This is really my favourite foundation as of now and i am so impressed by this foundation. Haven't really thought of any down-sides to this foundation as of yet because it is versatile and works well with any type of application, be it sponge, fingers or brushes. Cannot fault this foundation at all and i would recommend this to anybody who is on the hunt for an amazing foundation.
