I was looking for a full-glam and full-coverage foundation that felt lightweight and breathable on my skin – and I’ve found the perfect one! The Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear Stick Foundation is a creamy and comfortable foundation that doesn’t feel heavy or cakey on the skin, but offers 24 hours of naturally glam and flawless coverage. Read on for my full review of this must-have foundation…
The Most Important Thing About The Lancome Stick Foundation Is…
The Lancome stick foundation means you can have a good skin day, every day! It blends beautifully on the skin to leave a natural matte and shine-free finish that looks airbrushed and perfected. The lightweight creamy texture minimises the appearance of pores and imperfections to give you a unified and smooth appearance, while skin feels soft and comfortable underneath – you’d be forgiven for forgetting you were even wearing foundation at all! It creates a second-skin effect for a naturally matte and flawless result, while the double-ended stick also contains a compact kabuki brush to help you blend the silky foundation to perfection. I love how buildable the coverage is too, it’s definitely medium at the least but can be built up to offer all out glam.
One of the things I love most about the Lancome Teint Idole stick foundation is its versatility; you can collect a range of colours to create your ideal sculpted and defined complexion. You can use it as a concealer, foundation, contour or highlighter to sculpt and contour your face to perfection.
What Does It Look Like On?
The silky cream-to-powder texture blends into skin beautifully to leave it looking naturally flawless with a natural matte and shine-free finish.
What Skin Type Is It For?
The Lancome stick foundation has been dermatologically-tested to be suitable for all skin types, including sensitive. It’s non-comedogenic too, so won’t clog pores.
You Will Love This If…

What’s Special About The Design?
Elegant, sleek and luxurious… would you expect anything less from Lancome? I don’t think you’d even realise this was a foundation at first glance! The double-ended black tube has a golden disc at its crown, which is embossed with the iconic Lancome rose. When you remove the lid, the foundation stick is held in a golden twist-up, while the other end has a black lid that conceals an integrated compact kabuki foundation brush that makes blending a breeze; the bristles are ultra-soft and compact to allow for seamless blending. The sleek black and gold design makes it easy to apply wherever and whenever; it can easily slot into your handbag for top-ups throughout the day, or if you want to build coverage to take you from day-to-night.
How Do You Use It?
Glide the Teint Idole foundation stick over your complexion and blend using the double-ended brush.
