As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been on the search for a new foundation in recent weeks. To counterbalance my non-existent morning sickness I seem to have been given the acne problem. Along with the suggestion of using a special antibacterial soap, it was mentioned to look for and use a water-based foundation instead of oil-based.
At the Debenhams event I recently attended, I took full advantage of being able to grab a few samples of foundation in between shows and headed to the Lancome counter. The helpful lady matched me up with the Teint Idole Ultra 24hr foundation, which is a water-based foundation and I headed on my way with a sample in hand.
I used the sample for over a week and I just loved it. I can’t say I’ve used a water-based foundation before, but it’s definitely something that surprised me. I love the colour match, I love that it feels quite matte, not oily like some foundations can feel in liquid form, the coverage is great and it doesn’t smell too bad either. At £24 it’s no more expensive than Estee Lauder, so definitely within my budget and so I recently purchased a full bottle.
Have you tried this foundation? What did you think? Do you have any other recommendations?
