Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear Stick and Camouflage
Followers of The Life of Stuff on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram will know that I was delighted to receive these gorgeous surprises of Teint Idole Ultra Wear Stick and Camouflage in the post from Lancôme Ireland.
Beauty surprises in the post, well any surprises that aren’t bills, are always lovely but when the beauty surprise is a cosmetic, that’s your colour match, well the surprise is even sweeter. And yes I have in the past been sent samples that have been about a zillion times past my skin colouring and so have not been able to honestly review them, and so haven’t.
Anyhoo back to these two beauts and my beauty fix review. But before I talk about them, have you read my “Beauty Fix – Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear & Comfort Retouch-Free Foundation”
Teint Idole Ultra Wear Stick RRP €30
The shade I received was 007 Beige Rosé, which is just slightly darker than my Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation of 008 Beige Opal. When I first opened the stick I had planned on only using it as a contouring stick because of this. And I have used it as such when worn with my foundation. (To use it for contouring you add the darker shade to the top of your forehead, cheekbones and jaw bone to emphasise and basically contour your features. A lighter shade is normally used down the sides of the nose, on the cupid’s bow and on the top of your cheekbones but I usually brush on highlighter in these places).
However how I’ve used it more regularly of late is as a go to foundation stick when I’m about to leave the house with my two little ones, and I’m tight on ‘make up’ time. It’s perfect for when you’re on the go and want to touch up your already applied make-up but it’s equally great if you haven’t had a chance to apply makeup but just want quick, light and easy coverage while you pop to the shops.
I found the Teint Idole Ultra Wear Stick silky in texture, easy to apply, handy for touch-ups when out and about or for a quick application if I’m running out the door. I loved the shade, its light feeling and its multi tasking abilities. The stick comes in 20 shades and it’s a hot favourite in my makeup bag along with my next best makeup friend at the moment my …
Teint Idole Ultra Wear Camouflage High Coverage Concealer €26
I received the shade 010 Beige Porcelaine. It’s the lightest of eight shades and when I tell you I love this little product I tell you no lie. It’s a concealer dream for me.
The shade is perfect for my skin tone as it’s lighter than the foundation I wear. It’s high coverage so it hides all those silly imperfections I’d rather camouflage. You know like dark circles under my eyes or the redness from a spot. What I also love is that this beaut is going to last me. Once open its recommended use by date is two years. And because you only need the smallest amount for great coverage and that amount is delivered from a tube with a slimline applicator – wasting it won’t be a problem. The tube is pocket-sized, making it small enough to fit in your pocket if needs be. Love it!
