Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Cushion

For over 80 years, Lancome has continuously reinvented the beauty of the present by imagining the beauty of the future. Beyond fantasies and ads, beauty adapted to women's real needs. Simple yet contrasting needs requiring cutting-edge know-how: that if the Lancome laboratories.

Driven by Asian beauty and its ultra-inventive high standards, and aiming to encourage interaction between different types of beauty from all over the world, Lancome created its own version of the cushion in 2015. It was the first Western beauty brand to offer this new make-up step at the time, but in its own way: by enhancing it with a formula inspired by its multi-award-winning foundation, Teint Miracle.

The result was Miracle Cushion, which met with planetary success, but also generated new desired, new wishes and a new paradox to resolve: the freshness and portability of a cushion in a high-coverage version. A technological challenge that Lancome now achieves with Teint Idole Ultra Cushion, the combination of a new generation cushion and the flawless and ultrasophisticated coverage of one of the most legendary foundation franchises by Lancome.

One innovation can hide another: that of Cushion Blush Subtil, a cushion infused with liquid pigments that deliver a real sensation of freshness and remarkable colour result. In this way, Lancome continues to reinvent the pleasure and ease of worry-free and irreproachable make-up for women, as proven by Teint Idole Ultra Cushion and Cushion Blush Subtil.

A New Technology Paired with a Tailor-Made Formula

A new foundation cushion with the patent-pending Cushion Polar technology Teint Idole Ultra Cushion a new-generation technology developed for Lancome: the Cushion Polar technology, designed to adapt to a thicker, creamier texture offering high coverage cushion. Its secret: a reinvented sponge-cushion covered with an unprecedented mesh:

  • The sponge-cushion: it is composed of interlacing fibres with larger spaces to give the formula more room. The rigidity of these fibres also ensures optimal preservation of the formula inside the sponge.
  • The mesh: covering the sponge and activated during the first use, it filters the formula to guarantee thin, even application, all while maintaining freshness.
One simple press on the cocoon puff of this new cushion, whose softness is a pleasure in itself, and the formula rises to the surface. Neither too much nor too little: by perfectly filtering the formula, the Cushion Polar technology releases just the right dose. With its new sleek and chic design, this new-generation cushion stands out even more.

The ultra-sophisticated coverage of an advanced tailor-made formula

Both lightweight and high-coverage, the new Teint Idole Ultra Cushion formula is rich in micro-pigments to blur the slightest imperfection, while remaining wonderfully discreet for a satiny glowing finish that enhances the complexion. Coverage meets lightweight application. 

Its advantage? The JEL-LIQUID technology with amazing thixotropic properties. In other words, a gelling agent whose viscosity decreases when disturbed. Before use, the formula is dense and thick, which gives, which gives it better hold in the sponge-cushion. One press on the mesh covering the sponge reduces the viscosity of the JEL-LIQUID technology and fluidifies the formula, making it easy to apply and smooth onto the skin. For optimal coverage, but improved application and a very even skin result.

On contact with the epidermis, part of the formula's ingredients evaporate, causing the temperature of the skin surface to immediately drop by 1.7°C. Application becomes a moment of wonder. More than a sensation of freshness, a moment of well-being. This same phenomenon also helps set makeup on the skin to encourage a high-coverage result that lasts all day long for high-precision sophistication.

Because, more than ever, beauty goes hand in hand with healthy skin, this moisturizing, melt-away formula nourishes the skin while SPF50 sunscreen acts on the surface to protect against UV rays and prevent the development of free radicals. Finally, Teint Idole Ultra Cushion comes in a variation of nine shades to allow all women to effortlessly find their natural skin tone.
