We've Just Revealed Kate's Favourite Foundation

When you're the founder of a beauty company that's existed for almost 20 years, it probably comes as no surprise that you get to try a hell of a lot of products. So when someone like Kate Morris sticks to the same foundation for years, you know it must be pretty good.

"Lancôme Teint Idole is one of my all-time favourite foundations and a staple in my foundation wardrobe (yes, that's a thing)."

What Makes This Kate's Fave?

"I rely on it for days where I need medium-to-full coverage and super long wear, such as when I'm travelling. Often I'll have to do my makeup at 6am at home in Melbourne, before flying to Sydney for meetings all day; there's no time to reapply, so I need everything to stay put no matter how humid it is. What I particularly love about Teint Idole as a longwear foundation is that it's not too matte or drying, so it works for my dry, dehydrated skin type."

Kate's Pro Tip: For ultra long wear, a spritz of Skindinavia Makeup Finishing Spray over the top of the finished look will well and truly lock it in place all day.

What Does Everyone Else Say About It?

Fantastic foundation

SMF

This foundation comes in a nice bottle with a sturdy lid so the product travels well and looks great, there is a slight perfumed scent to the product yet no irritation on my typically sensitive skin. I found the coverage very buildable, the product comfortable to wear and with great staying power on my oily skin. This foundation was able to be sheered out with a little extra moisturiser for a light coverage; stippled on for medium coverage; layering acheived full coverage as did stippling on and following with powder foundation lightly to set. I used this foundation every day for 4 months before needing to repurchase as such a small amount goes a long way, it has replaced 3 products in my cupboard and is my new go to foundation no matter the occasion.

Coverage is perfect

Loz

This foundation is beautiful! It leaves my face looking flawless! The coverage is absolutely perfect and very buildable so perfect for everyday wear and for a full glam look! It is so blendable and stays true to it's colour. This foundation is amazing it doesn't make me break out or make my sensitive skin irritated what so ever! Definitely recommend.

Luxury finish

Rachel

I was given this to trial a couple of years ago and fell in love with it straight away. I found the formula to be the perfect thickness for a full coverage application. I loved the scent, it is a strong perfume scent that does tend to turn people away but it drew me in. The scent doesnt last long though. The foundation can go patchy if not applied properly or over-blended. I found using a flat kabuki brush for application and a quick press of a beauty blender makes the formula set to the skin smoothly. The wear of the foundation is a matte finish that lasts all day with only a few blots (I have a combination skin) and is medium to full coverage.
