Lancome Teint Idole Ultra & Pale Foundation Swatches

I think I mentioned briefly last week that I bought some new Lancome goodies. My main reason for shopping instore was to try out their revamped foundation, Teint Idole Ultra 24H. As the name suggests it promises 24 hour perfect coverage with no touch-ups. What enticed me most of all were the new paler shades, yes there are now two colours lighter than 010!
Darker skinned ladies, I'm afraid I didn't have time to browse the entire shade selection to see what's on offer, but there are now 18 shades, so hopefully something for everyone. If you click onto the Lancome Facebook page, you can print out a coupon for a colour match at your nearest counter and you'll take home a 7-day vial of your perfect shade. So, that's where I headed last week. The Lancome lady tried two shades on me, 005 Beige Ivoire which was pretty much my perfect skin colour and the one I took home. The other I think would have been the next darker shade, 007 Beige Rose which was much warmer than my skintone.
What first struck me was the scent of the foundation, it's very perfumed. Some people may be put off by that, but by day 3 I can honestly say I don't notice it any longer. I'm going to write a full review soon, but needless to say when I got home I went online and bought the full size bottle and a couple more things (GWP and 1000 bonus points on my Boots Advantage card).
I thought you would be interested in a comparison to my other foundations. I already have a full-size bottle of Teint Miracle (shown below), bought on a whim and I wish I hadn't because although I like the formula the shade is far too dark. I don't think it's too apparent here unfortunately, but it was blatant when they were side by side in front of me. I notice online they have newer shades of this too, so if I were to repurchase, I'd definitely get the 005.
So the colours are (and bear in mind my inner arm is much lighter than my face)...
Illamsqua Rich Liquid Foundation in 115: too mask like on me to wear as a full face and it is too light (makes me look ill).
Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24h in 005 Beige Ivoire: Like I said it's my skin but better. It just disappears on my face. My neck/chest can look slightly paler, but I don't have any line around my jaw at all.
Estee Lauder Double Wear in 1c1 Shell: If only EL would develop this winning foundation in a lighter shade. It is too dark for me, but I love the finish so continue to use it.
Soap & Glory Show Good Face in the Fairest Of Them All (haha, not really): too yellow and too dark. I tried using this last week without my blending sponge and it looked ridiculous.
Lancome Teint Miracle in 010 Beige Porcelaine: too dark, I have to mix this with Illamsqua to stop myself looking stupid!

  1. Thanks for this! I love Teint Idole and have been using 010 but it's a bit too dark for me in the winter. It looks like 005 is a perfect match! Would be great to see 007 as well..

  2. Thanks for this rewiew and swatches! I think 005 would be a good match for me.. as the previous Lulilian said it would be great to see a swatch of 007 too.

    1. How are you getting on with the Teint Idole? I've switched to Teint Miracle for the past few months (again in shade 005), but the 24H one is still a favourite.

    1. Hi Vay, have replied to your email. Illamasqua 115 is pink toned in person. Lancome 007 is a few shades lighter than 02 Lys Rose and looks very pink fromt he website swatch (on Lancome website). I actually found it to be warmer in person on me rather than cool toned, but it was a tiny swatch a while back, so I may not recall correctly, hope this helps x

    1. Hi Vay, again I'm struggling to understand and think what you're trying to say is getting lost in translation (as is my reply), so I will keep it simple.

      Illamasqua 115 is pink.
      Lancome 007 is lighter than 02 Lys Rose and looks very pink on the Lancome website. I cannot remember exactly what it looked liked as I tested it a long time ago. I think it was very warm against my cool (pink) toned skin though.

      I hope this helps and you can understand.
