A few weeks ago I shared on my Instagram about how much I was loving the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear foundation. I love trying new foundations, I’m always on the hunt for something “better” in the foundation department. Anyone else??

Ok so on to the foundation! Lancome boasts this foundation to be an oil-free, long wearing liquid foundation with medium to full matte coverage, and should last for up to 24 hours. The shade range is great with 40 to choose from. I purchased the the shade 460 which has a warm/yellow undertone, and it matches perfectly. I found the foundation to be easy to work with and the coverage buildable. I’m not sure how legit the 24 hour claims are because I don’t ever keep foundation on that long, but for a normal day it does great. I do have combination skin (oily in the t-zone) and do have to blot later in the day but not nearly as much as I do with many other foundations. It’s not cakey nor does it separate around my nose or my chin. It doesn’t feel heavy when it’s on either. I would definitely recommend this foundation if you’re on the hunt for something new!

The next foundation I wanted to talk about is the Revlon Colorstay. I’ve used this foundation for years and it’s one I always come back to over and over again. Dare I say it’s my holy grail foundation?! It’s my favorite drugstore foundation and even one I reach for often instead of my higher end foundations. I think everyone who knows me will say I’ve suggested this foundation at least once to them, I love it that much!

I decided to put this foundation in the same post as the Lancome because the Lancome reminds me so much of the Colorstay. So if you’re looking for an alternative to the Lancome, I think this is perfect, and at $9 (Target) it is much more affordable than the Lancome which is $47 (Sephora). This foundation is also medium to full coverage, easy to apply, and oil-free. Like I said earlier, I do tend to get oily in my t-zone, but with this foundation it’s not excessive and just a little blot and I’m right back to normal. I use the shade Caramel (400) and just like the Lancome it’s a perfect match. Unfortunately, the Revlon does not have the shade range like Lancome, so that would be my only con.

With both of these foundations I typically use my Beauty Blender to apply on an everyday basis because it gives it a smooth flawless finish. However, if I want more coverage I will use my foundation brush by MAC (I’ll link both of these tools below).

Have you tried either of these foundations? What do you think? Let me know in the comments!

    I used to wear Lancome foundation all the time but it was too much for my skin (I have eczema). It is good to know there is a more affordable alternative out there.

    I haven’t tried land comb but I think that has a good reputation. I just have never really been into it because I always associate it with my grandmother and old people LOL. Now I am the old people !!

    You definitely should, I don't think you can wrong with either!

    I have heard a few people say it can be a bit much for them. Maybe give the Colorstay a shot if you liked the Lancome, hopefully it will be better on your skin!

    I just read that Loreal owns lancome and It cosmetics and Revlon and many others. And the reading read that some of Loreals named drug store brand and lancome high end brand have the same ingredients, basically they are the same products. Amazing
