Lancôme is a brand I've used on and off throughout the years, starting with their cult juicy tubes and their Hypnôse mascara yet I've never tried their base products. With the unveiling of the newest kid on the block, Teint Idole Ultra Cushion and some beautiful cushioned blushes now was the time. Available on counters and online now, the products feature a revolutionary new formula that gives long lasting skin coverage with easy application and a range of shades for all skin types. The compacts both feature two lids, the first lid opens to reveal the mirror and puff applicator then a second lid houses the cushion. The double lids are stop the product from drying out.
Teint Idole Ultra Cushion in 02* £30.00 -
I'm a liquid foundation kinda girl and anything that comes in the form of handy compact throws me but this intrigued me. The new liquid cushion foundation from Lancôme is a comforting and long lasting foundation in a sturdy black and gold compact. The cushion technology allows for easy application to leave you with a high coverage, luminous finish. The compact is refillable so you only ever have to buy the cushioned foundation and the puff applicator helps give skin a smooth and flawless finish.
I trialled Teint Idole Ultra Cushion over the course of a busy week at events and was really impressed with the outcome. My skin has broken out recently and this covered any blemishes with no problems, it lasted all day and I didn't have to touch up. Who knew I could be a cushioned foundation convert?
Cushion Blush Subtil in 02* & 022* £28.00 -
Much like the cushion foundation, a cushioned blush is not what I'd usually go for, I like my powder blushes too much but I love both these shades so I got to work making my cheeks look glowing and flawless. The Cushion Blush Subtil comes in black compacts and much like the cushion foundation, there is also a puff applicator. There are six shades available and I have Rose Limonade, a vibrant pink and Rose Givrée, a pretty coral.
The blushes have a high intensity formula which are surprisingly lightweight allowing them to glide onto skin and blend effortlessly to your desired shade. They give a beautiful, natural tint which mostly looks dewy so if that's not your thing, just tap a little loose powder on to make it more subtle. Although the price is quite steep for a blush, I quite like them. They're long lasting, have a nice range of shades and for instantly bright and fresh cheeks, this is a product you need to try.
