I feel that sometimes finding a really good everyday easy makeup routine can often times be really hard and pricy because I can never find something that is minimal enough for an everyday look. Ever since I got introduced to Vichy in my first collaboration with them a while back I was absolutely sold on all their products. Since then, Vichy has been one of my absolute favourite brands for skincare. Recently Vichy came out with their new Teint Idéal collection which is the first range of foundation for a beautiful complexion and natural healthy glow.
Vichy Teint Idéal Illuminating Foundation – Fluid
I didn’t think that I would like this foundation when I first did a swatch on my hand because it did not seem as pigmented as I would like it to be. However I was pleasantly surprised with the formula and eventually ended up loving it so it has become one of the foundations I use for everyday light makeup (especially to work). This foundation comes in a fluid consistency and it is actually perfect for normal to combination skin. The foundation is ultra-liquid water-based with their signature Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water which strengthens and primes skin with hydration. It leaves your face with a dewey luminous satin-finish. This foundation is light-medium coverage but it does a really good job at giving you a naturally airbrushed base without looking caked on and covers most blemishes and fine lines. It feels very light on your face so your skin can breathe underneath and has a 14 hour hold. It comes in a total of 5 shades: 15 Ivory, 25 Sand, 35 Rosy Sand, 45 Honey, 55 Bronze. I wear the shade 35 Rosy Sand.
Vichy Teint Idéal Illuminating Foundation – Cream
This foundation is similar to the Teint Ideal Fluid foundation however the only difference is that this has more of a cream based texture rather than a liquid fluid foundation. This foundation is good if you have normal to dry skin because it contains hyaluronic acid to give you 24hrs of continuous hydration without drying out your face. The coverage is the same, light-medium. The formula is very lightweight and does not clog your pores. This foundation is good if you are looking for more of a radiant velvety skin finish. This cream foundation also comes in 5 shades only. 15 Ivory, 25 Sand, 35 Rosy Sand, 45 Honey, 55 Bronze. I wear the shade 35 Rosy Sand.
Vichy Teint Idéal Roll-on Illuminating Highlighter
The roll-on highlighter is meant to be a multipurpose illuminator which can be used alone or as a complement to your makeup routine. It does a great job at freshening up my complexion, giving me an immediate luminous glow. It contains Liquid Light Technology to give off that immediate healthy glow and the signature Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water to strengthen and prime your skin. I find that it tends to be a bit streaky and doesn’t blend well if your face is too dry (after your foundation is set) so I like to apply this illuminating highlighter with a micro beauty blender right after I apply my liquid foundation. Also , I do love the roll-on applicator because it is small enough so that I can take it with me on the go and use it for touch-ups throughout the day which I find for some reason doesn’t leave any streaks and blends really well. Im going to assume this is because my makeup has been on my face for most of the day and has absorbed some of the oils on my face making it easier to touch up with this highlighter. This highlighter only comes in 1 standard shade “0” and is non-coloured.
Vichy Teint Idéal Compact Powder Foundation
This powder foundation isn’t like any other foundation I’ve tried before. It literally melts like butter onto your skin giving you a beyond flawless finish. It is great for all skin types. The texture is very light and velvety which unifies your skin tone without weighing it down. It does a really good job at setting your foundation so that it does not crease or turn. I would say that it is light to medium coverage and it gives you a semi-matte finish. I absolutely adore this compact powder because it has a mirror, a small application sponge, and its small enough so it doesn’t take up a lot of space which means that it is great for taking it with you on the go for touch-ups throughout the day. Now, although it comes with a little square sponge, I personally prefer to dust it on lightly with a powder brush. This powder foundation currently comes in 3 shades: 1 light, 2 medium, and 3 dark. I use the shade 2 medium.
Vichy Teint Idéal Bronzing Powder
Bronzing is my absolute favourite past-time. I feel like even with a bare face, as long as you apply a little bit of bronzer to give yourself colour, you can look fabulous. This bronzer is super cute! It is perfect for all skin types and tones. The compact comes with an ultra-soft, mini makeup brush and a mirror, making it also easy to carry around for quick touch-ups throughout the day. This bronzer currently comes only in 1 shade: Sun Kissed Glow. However, it is very universal. Depending on your skin tone, if you are light you can apply only a small amount, and if you are more tan you can apply a generous amount of bronzer and it will still give you that perfect sun kissed glow.
