I apply this with a flat top brush and just pat it all over, I don't swirl it around at all. It glides onto the skin and does not sink into lines, but does adhere to the skin very well. I do not need to set this with anything because it does already provide that slightly powdery finish and it dries quickly. This foundation is also oil-free which I appreciate and it's listed as non-comedogenic and dermatologist tested. It claims to last 14 hours, personally I don't need a foundation that lasts that long, but when I did wear this all day, I didn't notice it change or shift or wear off at all. Please note, there is no SPF in this product, so you will need to get your SPF in your lotion.
This foundation has a very high-quality feel, sometimes paying the extra money and getting a great product is worth it. I love that this gives awesome coverage without feeling or looking caked on. Lancome's Teint Idole is definitely one of my favourite foundations ever.
Have you tried Lancome's Teint Idole Ultra? What did you think?
