Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H Foundation, $45.00 for 1 oz, is a full coverage matte foundation with a smooth, velvety finish. It's a great full coverage option that doesn't feel heavy or cakey. It's completely matte, which is great for those who just prefer the matte look or prefer to add shimmer either with their color products (hello MAC Mineralize Skinfinish and Milani Baked Blush!) or by adding an illuminator to their foundation (MAC Lustre Drops, NARS Illuminators).

I'm wearing Teint Idole Ultra in the photos below. I'm wearing Too Faced Sweethearts Blush on my cheeks in both shots so that's adding a bit of shimmer there. As you can see on my forehead, nose, and chin, the coverage is completely matte. I am not wearing setting powder in either shot.
You get the same amount as a bottle of Revlon ColorStay but the Lancome comes with a pump. I've found the Lancome has more coverage than ColorStay and doesn't give the skin a powdery look. Teint Idole Ultra does contain SPF 15, so there is minor flashback in photos. For regular everyday wear, it's a champ!
My Rating: A
Where to Buy: Lancome, Sephora
