* I remember when brands first started to bring out the new cushion foundations, and I was like whatt the hell is that?! Until I bought the L’Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation, and I absolutely loved it. It gave me such a dewy natural finish and wore it every single day. I didn’t really think that a cushion foundation could get any better, until the lovely people at Lancome sent me their new Teint Idole Ultra Cushion Foundation which, by the way, had the most amazing packaging. I was blown away when I realised that the Foundation packaging is re-fillable, which is great for when you run out, you can just add another top up.
As soon as you put a tiny bit of pressure onto the cushion, the product instantly comes to the surface and easily applies to the bush or pad that you’re using to apply it. I found that with the L’Oreal one, I found myself pushing down quite hard to get the product out, but with the Lancome one, you don’t need to put much pressure hardly at all and you get more than enough of the product. This cushion foundation has quite a high coverage which I really love just to cover up all of those spots and blemishes without looking cakey. It blends really well into the skin leaving it looking glowy and flawless. I have this product in the shade 02, which I am really shocked suits my skin tone really well, I really struggle to find the right shade of foundation and I’m not really sure why, so I am super happy with that. Another great thing about this product, is that it’s oil free so it won’t leave your skin feeling shiny or oily, and it has SPF 50 in, which in my eyes is amazing as you always want to protect your skin from the sun, especially you want to stop any dark blemishes or wrinkles appearing- which I don’t think anyone wants!
I was also super shocked when I also received the Lancome Cushion Blush Subtil. I was kindly sent this along with the foundation, in the shade 025 which is a gorgeous rosey/coral pink colour. It’s perfect for the evenings and what I love about it the most, is that you can make it really subtle and natural with just a hint of colour, or you can really build it up to a lovely vibrant pink on your cheeks. It still allows you to have that real dewy healthy glow which I love and also keeps your cheeks feeling cool and vibrant throughout the day.
I am really impressed with Lancome’s new cushion products, especially the foundation, I can see myself wearing this almost everyday. It’s packaging makes it very easy to travel with as it’s so compact and because of the cushion, it is’t messy at all, meaning it is very hard to waste any of the product.
Have you tried any cushion foundations before? If you haven’t I really recommend Lancome’s Teint Idole Ultra Cushion for that perfect flawless finish.
Love always, G x
