LANCÔME TEINT IDOLE ULTRA WEAR FOUNDATION - US vs UK SHADES

If, like me, you watch "beauty gurus" from different countries on Youtube,  then you know how frustrating it is when they tell you their Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation shade and it doesn't correlate with the shades in your region.



As stated in my "Foundations For Dark Skin" post, this was and still is my all time favourite foundation and it comes in 65 shades globally. I don't know if Lancôme is the only brand that has different shades/shade names for different regions of the world but I remember spending hours trying to narrow down the list of possible shade matches from the shades my Youtube skin-twins used.


Skin-twin (noun): A person who has the same skin type and complexion as you. Not Rude, Honest

I compiled a list of all the Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation shades available globally from dark to light and put the US/UK shade equivalents where possible. From personal experience, I know that the UK shade names are used across Europe, the Middle East and Australia while the US shades are used in the Americas. I'm not sure which of the versions are used in Africa and Asia as I haven't shopped for make-up in either continent for a while, but if any of you know, please comment below. I hope this helps someone save time and frustation. #KnowledgeIsPower
