Transfer-resistant and smudge-resistant, it’s infused with ambora extract, which helps to reduce the appearance of redness, making it suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin. This oil-free, pigment-rich makeup stick can be used as a concealer, and it glides on easily for custom contouring or highlighting. Perfectly portable, it can be used for touch ups on the go.

This was once my favorite foundation sticks and quite honestly one of the best on the market. I love that the undertones aren’t too warm for my deep skin. A lot of times brands make the deeper tones too orange or red but this color suits me perfectly. It’s pricy for a foundation stick so I use this when I want to feel luxurious for date night or if I’m attending somewhere special. This is repurchase worthy.

After falling in love with their liquid foundation, I decided to try the stick formula and I was literally blown away! It goes on easily (without worries of breaking it) and blends out so beautifully. I have dry skin so I'm always concerned about my dry patches but this didn't emphasize them at all. I ended up with a beautiful and even coverage (that's buildable) and it lasted all day long. You do need to make sure to set the foundation though or it will transfer slightly. This is by far MY FAVORITE stick foundation out of the ones I have tried. I highly recommend giving this a try!

I've discovered that foundation sticks give you more coverage and SPF, than regular liquid foundation! The packaging is great and perfect for travel, TSA-approved and not messy. Lancome is one of the FEW companies that I can wear foundation and not experience discoloration! Their color matching system is amazing! I've worn their foundation all summer long and kept getting compliments on how amazing my skin looks. It gives me a smooth finish and has excellent coverage. I don't have to use a face primer underneath because the foundation is that potent and does not require re-applying throughout the day! A major staple in my everyday makeup kit.
I really like this Foundation stick. It dries to powder so you don't have to powder anything over it. What I like most about it is that it's full coverage but it feels lightweight. It feels like there's nothing on my face all day. The only thing I would change is make it more blendable with a cream contour.

I feel as though this product does really take some test runs and practice. I wore it five or six times before and hated it, and I still once and a while find issue with the application, but once you get it on and it’s correct, it STAYS. Like no setting spray or powders needed. It’s just there, done deal.
Absolutely no acne causing or irritating ingredients. It really does stay on all day and feels like nothing. Has a great texture on the skin and coverage is amazing. It is though to find a shade that matches though, I still haven’t found my perfect one and they do seem to lean more pink/cool toned.

I personally did not like the consistency of this product it felt thick and once applied it made my face feel dull and it seemed darker than my skin tone; which I did not get with the regular foundation in the same color. I do love how easy it is to carry around and how easy it is to apply.

I've been using this Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra stick foundation lately and I absolutely love it! I've never used a stick foundation before but I have to say that this stuff is just amazing! It makes my skin look flawless! It's a matte finish, easy to blend and it stays on all day!🙌🏼👌🏼❤️
Review for: 90 Ivoire N more...
I like this foundation stick in a pinch or when I'm traveling and don't want to risk having a glass bottle in my carry-on, but I have a couple of concerns about it. The color match (90 N) is spot-on for me, which a huge plus, but I do not feel like it is particularly long-wearing on my normal to dry skin, and it never really feels like it dries down on my skin. Whenever I use it, I typically have to use a lot of powder to set it. I do love the convenience of it and the fact that it has SPF as well, but I likely won't repurchase it.

I think it’s a good foundation in general. The finish was pretty but i didn’t find the staying power to be anything special. Stick foundations aren’t necessarily your fave for dry skin(like me) so i may not have been the best test subject for this product.
Q & A
What do you use to apply this? Would a beauty blender work, or a specific type of face brush?
Does this product work well for combo skin?
Is this full coverage?
Since it has SPF does it smell like sunscreen and does it make your skin oily?
Are foundation sticks worth it or should I stick to liquid foundation?
