I received a box through the Influenster program from Lancome that contained new products to test. It's always exciting for a beauty influencer to be involved in testing new products. The first item in the box was Teint Idole Ultra Longwear Makeup Stick with SPF 21, ($42).
The color I received was 215 Buff (N), a shade of beige with neutral tones. This is perfect for my skintone. I knew I would love it because I'd purchased the exact same stick in the same color last spring.
I really like this foundation stick. It glides brilliantly and smooths to perfection on the skin. It is comfortable, hydrating and longwearing. Teint Idole Ultra Longwear stick is oil-free, smudge resistant, transfer free and suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin. It comes in a wide range of 20 shades. You can find the ingredient list here.
The next item in the box is the Teint Idole Ultra Wear Camouflage concealer, ($31). I received the color 110 Ivory (c). This is classified as a cool shade and is in a typical squeeze type tube. When I first looked at it, I thought it would be too orange for me but it is perfect for my coloring. It covers my purple undereye circles and blends easily over any small marks I might have. It has full coverage with a very lightweight feel in a non-creasing formula. I'm really pleased with this item in the length of wear, color and how easily it blends. You can see swatches below, (l to r: foundation, concealer, highlighter, lipgloss).
The Lancome Click N Glow Highlighting Pen, ($23), comes in four colors. I received D'Or, which is a golden shimmer. This is designed for sophisticated brightening rather than the in your face kind of brightness. although it can be built up for a more obvious kind of glow. It's in a click pen with a doe foot applicator.
You can mix this with foundation or concealer for overall brightening, use it for spot highlighting, or layered with any other highlighter you might have. This pen is really cool. The delivery is perfect for travel or reapplying throughout the day if you need to. I plan to pick up the Rose, a light pink tone, as well. It is infused with glycerin and vitamin E to insure your skin stays hydrated.
The fourth item I received was Lancome Le Mettalique Metallic Lip Lacquer in Mirrored Nude, ($22), a pink champagne metallic gloss. This was already on my wishlist and it's travel size fits easily into a purse or pocket. This gloss has a lightweight hydrating formula with a multi-dimensional shine. Mirrored Nude is the lightest of the colors.
Lancome can be purchased at Ulta, Sephora, Nordstrom, and all other department stores. My thanks to Influenster and Lancome for the opportunity to try these products.
Have you tried any of these four? What do you think? What is your very favorite Lancome product?
