Beauty: Vichy Teint Idéal Collection Review

When Vichy announced the release of their new complexion improving Teint Idéal collection, I knew I had to try it out for myself. This line pretty much promises you a Snapchat filter, IRL (in real life, for those of you who were born before 1990). The collection includes pretty much everything you need for a perfect complexion: a liquid foundation, a cream foundation, a compact powder foundation, a bronzing powder, a highlighter and a concealer (which I did not get a chance to try). 

Fluid Foundation, $38

+ very lightweight, water-based texture
+ easy to blend
+ light-medium coverage
+ good for sensitive skin
+ has an SPF

- runs a little after 3-4 hours
- does not control oil 

Cream Foundation, $38

+ not heavy or greasy despite being hydrating
+ contains hyaluronic acid 
+ easy to apply, even with your fingers 
+ light-medium coverage
+ a little goes a long way

- runs a little after 3-4 hours

Powder Foundation, $36

+ medium coverage
+ controls oil for 6-7 hours
+ does not feel heavy or cakey

- a tad chalky

Bronzing Powder, $36

+ velvety feel
+ easy to blend
+ not too dark, can be a good Winter bronzer
+ perfect to warm up your complexion all-over

- universal shade might be a little light for darker skin tones
- shade is too warm to be used as a contour

Illuminator, $27

+ lightweight, liquid texture
+ roll-on makes it easy to apply, very little is needed
+ can be used on its own
+ discreet, glow from within effect 

- a little runny, can be tricky to apply over makeup
- not very noticeable

All in all, the quality of the Teint Idéal products is amazing. There is a foundation for every skin type and I love the illuminator and bronzer. None of them feel heavy, all while improving the appearance of the skin. They really do feel like naked skin, except better. My favorite product of the collection is probably the powder foundation, which has surprisingly good coverage, is so easy to use on its own and does not emphasize dry skin. If you like natural coverage, the Vichy Teint Idéal products are for you!
