A Portrait of a Beauty Blogger courtesy of Lancome

Who would have thought you could use foundation to paint a portrait? That’s exactly what Lancome Canada did as part of a campaign for its new Teint Idole Ultra 24H foundation. Yours truly was one of six beauty bloggers whose portraits were painted by Canadian artist, Shane Turner. He used the 20 shades of Teint Idole to paint the portraits. How cool is that?

Check out the video.

I tried two colours, Bisque 340N and Bisque 320W. Both worked well with my skin tone though Bisque 320 was a tad more yellow.  The foundation is a dream to work with. The texture is light and it blends quite easily. It hides what I need it to hide, yet it doesn’t feel or look heavy.

The foundation is said to last for 24 hours, but really who would wear it that long? For me, it stood the test of time — a full work day and a few hours into the evening. I felt my skin looked as close to flawless as it can look during that time.

Teint Idole has now become part of my makeup routine. I now have four foundations, including this one, in rotation ;)

Lancome generously sent me the portrait framed, and it is now proudly displayed in my living room. Thanks Lancome!

    Michelle – The painting is gorgeous, I love it! I am using Teint Idole at the moment and I love it. It is one of the few brands whose range includes shades for darker skin tones.
