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!
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.
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!
