For flawless skin on the go, nothing beats a stick foundation. While Teint Idôle Ultra Foundation Stick was a favorite as it was, it’s just gotten a 2021 makeover — and we hope you’ll love some of the key changes we made. (And if you were a fan of the original cream to powder foundation formula, you’ll be happy to know that the stick foundation formula is one and the same.) Here, what you should know about the new and improved Teint Idôle Ultra 5-in-1 Foundation Stick.
The new Teint Idôle Ultra Foundation Stick formula is different in one way: It doesn’t contain sunscreen. (Instead, smooth on UV Expert Aquagel Defense Sunscreen SPF 50, which doubles as a moisturizer and primer, before your foundation stick.) Beyond that, it’s the foundation stick you know and love: The full-coverage foundation still has a velvety matte finish and offers shine control, thanks to its transformation into a powder foundation upon application. (That makes it among our best foundations for oily skin, by the way.) However, it’s also a lightweight foundation formula with a silky texture, so it’s still incredibly easy to blend and won’t ever get cakey on skin. The long-lasting foundation stick also offers up to 24 hours wear.
The foundation stick comes in 22 foundation shades to cover a wide range of skin tones — as well as account for all the different ways to use this foundation, since it doubles as concealer, highlighter, bronzer and for contouring. The foundation shades also cover all undertones, making it simple to find the right foundation match.
While you’re welcome to apply the foundation stick directly onto skin and blend it in with your fingers, a foundation brush offers easier, more seamless blending without the mess. That’s why the new Teint Idôle Ultra Foundation Stick now features a built-in kabuki brush on the opposite side of the tube for fast and flawless application. You can use it to brush on foundation and blend it into skin; the brush makes the foundation stick even more portable and easy to apply on-the-go. The fingerless application also keeps it hygienic, while the brush makes it even easier to use the stick for contouring.
A foundation stick that only works as foundation makeup? Old news. Instead, try using the new Teint Idôle Ultra Foundation Stick throughout your entire makeup routine.
In two shades lighter than your foundation makeup, the cream to powder foundation formula works as a concealer or a highlighter, depending on where you choose to brush on foundation. In two shades darker, you can use the foundation stick to contour, which gives structure and definition to your face. To learn how to apply the foundation stick in these ways, check out this step by step breakdown.
Another option? Try applying it over a liquid foundation like Teint Idôle Ultra 24H Long Wear Foundation to add a highlight or conceal a blemish.
The bottom line: With so many ways to use Teint Idôle Ultra Foundation Stick, it just might turn out to also be the concealer, highlighter or bronzer you’ve dreamed of based on the foundation shade you choose. With our new foundation stick in hand, you’ll find it’s easier than ever to get the even, naturally flawless complexion you want.
