Six years ago, I reviewed a much loved foundation – the Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear.
This foundation, six years on, is still one of my ultimate favourites when it comes to luxury foundations, one I deem well worth the higher spend, as you really are getting far superior quality. While I’ve been one to rave about my drugstore finds and favourites, there are only two high-end foundations I will HAPPILY spend my hard-earned money on, and the Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear is one of them.
While I’ve now gone through four bottles of this glorious makeup, I have since finished up my last one, and have been saying I need to restock – and lo and behold, the brand has upgraded and improved their formula. So, I’ll most definitely be treating myself to a new bottle soon – once I double check the new shade range, to see if I can find an even better match.
