For today I tried out a different foundation then I usually would. Lancôme recently launched a lot of new products for the face: Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation, Custom Glow Drops and the Ultra Wear Sticks. The new stick is an amazing multi-tasking item, since you can use it as a foundation, concealer or even contour! Lancôme also promises that it will stay on your skin for 24 hours, I was very curious to test this out for myself as well.*
For those long days: full coverage, comfortable long wear… use Teint Idole Ultra Foundation Stick when you need it, where you need it. This oil-free, highly pigmented, long wear makeup stick foundation delivers buildable coverage with a natural-looking matte finish for ultra-versatile application: use as a matte foundation, for touch-ups, as a spot concealer, or to contour. € 46,00
The first thing that I noticed was the beautiful sleek black and gold packaging, which makes it so easy as well to carry in your make-up bag as well. I like how Lancôme is changing their packaging and launching new products, (check my article about the Lancôme event) such as the L’Absolu Gloss and the new Lancôme nailpolishes that I wrote about earlier.
I received 3 different shades from the 15 shades to try out: Beige Diaphne (03), Beige Nature (04) and Beige Idéal (055).
All day color wear. All day comfort.

I first swatched the Ultra Wear Sticks on my arm and after I took a shower I noticed something straight away: the swatches were still visible! This proves that the foundation sticks are definitely long lasting. I apply the stick straight on my face and then blend it out with a beautyblender. I find that this way works the best for my combination skin. It has an amazing coverage with a semi matte finish, that will stay on your skin the entire day, no primer needed! I’m currently using the shade Beige Diaphne (03). It blends very easy on your skin and the best part is that if you have a textured skin with acne or larger pores, it won’t emphasize them at all. I personally also really like to use the 055 shade as a contour, it makes it so much easier to apply the powder on top of it. The Ultra Wear Sticks will truly give you a flawless finish.
