When it comes contour, I always prefer using a darker shade foundation than actual face contour products. For me it just blends way much better.
My all-time favorite one is Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick in Almond, it honestly lasts me more than 2 years. However, just recently an opened makeup pass its expiration date could damage skin got my attention, so I hope I can find something to replace this one also just want to try something new. Before I got the chance to try this Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Makeup Stick, I was going to get Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick after watched Amanda Ensing’s video, she highly recommended it and also because she and I have very similar skin type which is combination to dry.
I have to say this makeup stick performs better than I expected. I didn't feel good about its packaging; it doesn't feel as luxe as the Bobbi Brown one. But as the product itself, I love it!!! It’s so creamy and glides on face quite nice! For picture purposes, I didn’t blend the product right the way, later on I found out because this foundation stick is super long-lasting, so it becomes a bit difficult to blend afterwards.
I always try to avoid any yellowish, orange or even greyish color as my contour shade; they make my makeup looks muddy and it literally can ruin the whole makeup look. I am glad this shade 420 is with natural undertone so it's perfect for me.
Overall, this is an amazing foundation stick that is perfect for contouring. Even though I might not be able to leave my expired Bobbi Brown foundation stick, I still have a feeling I will use this Lancôme makeup stick very often.
Thank you for reading! And thank you Lancôme for the gift! As always all options my own and the honest!
