Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24hr foundation in 005 also known as Beige Ivorie.
For many years I searched high and low for a foundation that was MY colour, ultra pale but not vampire (looking at you Illamsqua) and I finally found it courtesy of a Lancome counter girl in Boots in Cardiff. (shout out to the Welsh girls) who gave me a generous sample to try.
And just like that the constant orange tinge to my face had gone, no more tide lines around my hair and jaw. It blended into my skin, like my skin but better.
There's only two things I'm not keen on about it, firstly the price, at £30 it's a teeny tiny bit expensive. Thankfully I only use a little bit each day so it lasts me several months. And secondly the smell, it is heavily scented, like full blown spritzed with perfume scented. After so long I've got used to the smell and kinda like it, but given a choice I'd remove it altogether.

But just to show you how well it looks on me, here's something I never thought I'd do again;

|Hi, excuse the jumper. It's warm and cosy.|
There's more, this was taken at about 7pm, so after a full days work my makeup is still going strong, not that I'd wear it for 24hrs without a wash, but it does stay put.
Next time on the blog.
