Review: Lancome Teint Visionnaire

I got the chance to try out Lancome's new foundation Teint Visionnaire, ahead of it's nationwide launch today, so I thought I'd do a review for anyone who's looking at buying it.

It's a duo foundation-concealer product: a 30ml bottle of foundation with a large compact concealer held in the lid, along with a mirrow. The packaging itself is rather bulky. Not good for girls-on-the-go but it's a pretty, and a user-friendly design.

The product itself is a foundation-version of the brands bestselling Visionnaire serum. The ingredient used in the serum (LR 2412) is hailed as being a technological feat in skincare that activates the skin's defences and healing process. Lancome claim that it refines the surface texture, smoothes wrinkles and fades irregular pigmentation. The foundation contains a 2% concentration of this ingredient, while the serum contains 4%. The serum is priced at £59 and the foundation and concealer duo at £36, so it already seems like a good deal when you compare it to their skincare prices.

But how does the foundation actually perform?
The formulation is thin and gives a medium coverage with an SPF of 20. The finish is a natural satin, and I would therefore say it's not the best for those looking for anything high coverage or matte. If you want a more natural look though, this foundation is really nice. It leaves the skin looking youthful and radiant, without looking 'overdone'. The staying power on my skin was about average compared to my other foundations. Not ultra-long lasting, but it got me through the day without disappearing.

The concealer has a good coverage. Though still not full coverage, it effectively conceals any blemishes on my face and works really nicely under the eyes. For any major breakouts I would personally switch to a higher coverage product, but for day to day use, this is great.


I haven't been using it long enough to comment on any of the skin benefits, but judging by a week's worth of wear, this foundation is a great choice for everyday. It's targeted at older women, so therefore may not be the best choice for younger, oily skin. But if you are 20+ and your skin is normal-dry, this would be a nice choice.

  2. I think it is interesting and quite nice that it has both a foundation and a concealer in the same package. Nice review! :)

  3. I've never tried a Lancôme foundation before, but I think it must be great! I'm also very interested in their skin care. The products look amazing and all the people I know who use Lancôme products, have really amazing skin. Nice review! I'd really like to try this!

    Great post!

  5. Looks like a really interesting product, but I haven't had luck finding a light enough shade in the past with Lancome's foundations... will have to be on the look-out and swatch if it turns up here in Canada ;)

    Great post Fleur, your reviews always make me feel like you've covered all the bases with a product and have a really good idea of what to expect when trying it out!

  11. Really nice to see this reviewed as i have seen it around in the glossies. Probs wouldn't be for me as I need at least medium coverage, but I am definitely impressed with the 2-in-1 design! x

  12. How would you compare the Lancome to Stila's Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer who's got the exact same packaging, if you've tried both?

  13. Cute packaging for the concealer - kind of like the Bobbi Brown one :)

  14. I'm completely intrigued by the packaging! I would love to know what the skin benefits are like, it would be good to have an all in one product for foundation and helping my skin heal.

  23. If it's only good and not great, to me it's not worth spending that much money on. Thanks for the review anyway!

  24. The packaging is so cleverly thought out! I like to keep my foundation with me in my make-up bag though so it probably wouldn't be suitable for me! I prefer a full coverage also and as you say this is a medium coverage, it isn't great for me for that reason either. Although this isn't really for me, it's a great useful review and I will keep it in mind if anyone asks me for a product like this!

  25. I wish that you showed it on your face so we could see the coverage and finish, but I think this review was really helpful too.

  27. I really like the fact its a foundation, serum and concealer in one and I don't think the price is too bad but I don't think it would provide enough coverage for me sadly Xx

  30. sounds great with the concealer and foundation duo but I would prob prefer a product with more of a full coverage so I think I'll skip this one. I love lancomes products though and would love to try the latest foundation previous to this one. have heard great things! xx. gigi. food and beauty blogger @ www.gigikkitchen.blogspot.com

  31. Love your reviews, Fleur! Don't think I will be trying this- by the sounds of it it won't suit my skin type and it's quite pricey!

  34. I have oily skin but I think Imma give it a go anyway. Just to see how it works. I mean, concealer and foundation in one bottle for 30+ pounds? WHY NOT?

  42. I got to try this out ahead of the launch too and i just can't make up my mind on it, sometimes i love it but then there have been days where it has slipped around too much and the coverage although nice at first, doesn't seem to last too well on me. I usually really love Lancome foundations too.

  44. Lancome products are fab, I love the teint miracle&teint idole ultra 24hr this seems gr8 as it has concealer as well. Gr8 review!

    ReplyDelete
  45. This is so odd - My skin is fairly combination/oily, and I find this absolutely perfect - I can't usually wear foundation that is a little 'dewy' because of that, and usually opt for the tent idole ultra 24hr - But the coverage on this is so much better WHILST STILL natural looking, and I think the lasting power is better than others too! Not impressed with the concealer though, and I hate the packaging!
