What reviewers say:

Lancôme Teint Idôle Ultra 24H in shade 410 Bisque Warm (NC40 equivalent).

“Lightweight, yet great coverage. Stays put all day without feeling greasy.”

“I’ve waitressed outdoors for two summers in 80+ weather wearing this foundation and never had issues with it running or looking shiny.”

“Best foundation I’ve ever used. I have combo skin, and my t-zone tends to get oily. Every foundation I’ve tried slips off my t zone in a few hours.”

Who should buy Lancôme Teint Idôle Ultra 24H Foundation

Buy this if you are looking for:

  • longwearing medium to full coverage
  • matte finish
  • decent sun protection

Who should NOT buy this

Don’t buy this if:

  • you are looking for a dewy finish
  • you need a fragrance-free formula


Lancôme Teint Idôle Ultra 24H foundation is a medium to full coverage foundation that’s best for oily and combination skin. It has a longwearing formula and will last through sweaty and grueling days.

It has a mostly matte finish and dehydrated skin may not find it moisturizing enough.

Like many Lancôme products, this foundation does contain fragrance, but it fades away quickly.

50 different shades to choose from

This Lancôme foundation has an excellent variety of shades for warm, cool, neutral and olive skintones.

Sun protection included

This foundation is one of those rare foundations with added sun protection. It offers broad spectrum SPF 15, which isn’t much but is sufficient for cloudy days or a quick lunchtime walk.
