New Releases From Lancome Beauty

Last year I tried the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Cushion Foundation and really liked the coverage & the finish so I was super excited to get the opportunity to test out their latest release, the revamped Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear. This liquid foundation is celebrating 20 years of success and along with a name change it also comes in a new frosted chic bottle and more excitingly Lancome have introduced more shades.

Before I get into the foundation I just want to mention the La Base Pro Hydra Glow*, (I have only used this once so far) it is a makeup primer which has a brightening pink tone and is designed to give your skin a beautiful radiance whilst keeping your makeup looking fresh all day / night. Unlike most primers this Lancome offering is formulated to have some fantastic skincare benefits too. It contains a :-

Cocktail blend of 14 actives, the Nourishing-sensation intensely hydrates, plumps, and continuously charges the complexion with moisture for rose petal smooth and healthy skin, perfectly prepared for the layering of foundations, with extend wear all day long.

Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation*

This foundation has grown quite a following over the past 20 years and it is easy to see why. This liquid foundation offers that perfect lightweight formula which can easily be built up to give you that gorgeous full coverage finish. It is easy to go from a medium to a full coverage without applying too much product or having that heavy-looking finish. It has a semi matte, velvety smooth finish that never looks flat. It leaves your skin looking radiant and very healthy but don’t think because it is full coverage that it will look cakey because that is 100% not the case, you can tailor this foundation to your needs by building up the coverage when / where necessary.

I found applying this foundation with a damp sponge gave the best finish and coverage. A sponge allows me to apply less product and get flawless, even coverage. What do you like to apply your makeup with? sponge, brush or fingers?

What Makes The Difference?

  • Eternalsoft Polymer – allows increased comfort level with ultra‑long wear
  • NAI pigments – specially coated pigments maintain consistent pH level with skin, so color stays true all day
  • Perlite and Silica – two of the most effective oil‑absorbing ingredients

I wear shade 025 Beige Lin which is the perfect match for my quite pale skin. This foundation is oil, fragrance and transfer free and has SPF15.

NEW Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation

To celebrate this foundation turning 20 Lancome have made it a whole lot easier to find your ideal shade by offering this foundation in 40 shades. So you can find the shade that matches your complexion, undertones and colouring perfectly. With Lancome’s larger palette of shades more skin tones are catered for and you can finally say goodbye to not being able to get hold of your perfect shade. I have been wearing a shade which is a great match for my skin whilst it isn’t tanned but I will need to wear a different shade when Summer comes.

For me this foundation ticks a lot of boxes. I like the coverage, finish, how comfortable it feels on my skin and the fact it doesn’t go greasy throughout the day.

You can either use the My Shade My Power Lancome Shade Finder to match your perfect shade or head to your nearest Lancome counter to be matched.

Benefit Dandelion Shy Beam Liquid Highlighter

This is a beautiful product for Summer – its a soft-matte nude pink and it gives the skin a Iovely radiant glow. I use it as a subtle highlighter on my cheek bones and it reflects the light and makes my skin look fresh and adds a glow. If you’re a fan of the classic High Beam then you will like this more subtle option for those days you want a more low key but fresh faced look. This is great for minimal makeup days just to give your skin that effortless glow without a hint of shimmer or shine. Oh & how beautiful is the rose gold packaging?

Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry*

This is the first Redken product I have used and having thick hair a product that promises to reduce drying time is a product that catches my attention. So this new release from Redken is promises to

  • Reduce blow-dry time
  • Protect from heat up to 230˚
  • Help reduce breakage
  • Provide 24-hour lasting volume

I like that its a heat protectant as well as a styling product & any product that reduces the time I use heat on my hair is a plus for me. As I said my hair is very thick & usually takes an age to dry, I’ve used this a few times now & off the bat I noticed how soft and smooth my hair felt and looked after blowdrying. I would say it helped my hair dry a little quicker and I noticed my hair didn’t look as frizzy. Although its a cream and often cream products can feel heavy and make my hair feel greasy quickly this wasn’t like that at all. So if you want a product that protects against breakage and heart damage, as well as giving you a little added volume then thins new Redken release would be a great product to have in your haircare arsenal.

Bare Minerals Lash Domination

I do like the way this Mascara makes my lashes look but it seems to smudge on me so bad. This separates my lashes and makes them look so long and healthy but by the end of the day I have quite a lot of product under my eye and thats not a good look. Its such a shame because this ticks all the boxes, its jet black, I love the wand and it gives my lashes volume. The formula is quite wet so maybe as it dries out a bit that might make a difference. If you have tried this mascara let me know how you get on with it.

Bath & Body Works Hand Sanitiser

I love these hand sanitisers & my brother recently went to Dubai & kindly bought me back a stash of the summer scents. The one I am using at the minute is Vanilla Cupcake and is sweet and smells good enough to eat.

Vichy Dermablend 3D Correction Foundation*

This new addition to the popular Dermablend range from Vichy is quite an exciting one. Its a full coverage matte finish foundation, at first it appears to be quite a tic texture but once you start to blend it in to your skin its quite fluid and easy to blend. It gives your skin a smooth soft focus finish and if you have scaring or uneven skin tone that you like to cover then this works a treat. It gives you fantastic coverage without feeling heavy or looking cakey, and I found it to be really effective at counteracting redness. This foundation is 100% oil free and has,

  • Alliagel TM – which is a texture innovation exclusive to Vichy, the pigments and soft focus agents cover and blur imperfections to make the skin look even and velvety smooth.
  • Salicylic Acid – This is an ingredient in skincare that helps soothe irritated skin, prevent blackheads and unclog pores.
  • Eperulin – This is a great anti inflammatory so its fantastic at calming blemishes and any problems areas.

So its nice to see a makeup product that incorporates a good amount of skincare. This also has SPF 25 and is 100% oil free. Its ideal if you have oily skin, blemish prone skin. Its pretty fantastic and I love how the silky smooth my skin feels when I wear this. I have the shade Nude25 & my skin is quite fair & this is a great match.
