A technological challenge that Lancôme now achieves with Teint Idole Ultra Cushion, the combination of a new-generation cushion and the flawless and ultra-sophisticated coverage of one of the most legendary foundation franchises by Lancôme. One innovation can hide another: that of Cushion Blush Subtil, a cushion infused with liquid pigments that deliver a real sensation of freshness and a remarkable colour result. In this way, Lancôme continues to reinvent the pleasure and ease of worry-free and irreproachable make-up for women, as proven by Teint Idole Ultra Cushion and Cushion Blush Subtil.

Teint Idole Ultra Cushion features a new-generation technology developed for Lancôme: the Cushion Polar technology, designed to adapt to a thicker, creamier texture offering higher coverage. And thereby satisfy women in search of a high-coverage cushion. Its secret: a reinvented sponge-cushion covered with an unprecedented mesh:

  • The sponge-cushion: it is composed of interlacing fibres with larger spaces to give the formula more room. The rigidity of these fibres also ensures optimal preservation of the formula inside the sponge.
  • The mesh: covering the sponge and activated during the first use, it filters the formula to guarantee thin, even application, all while maintaining freshness.

One simple press on the cocoon puff of this new cushion, whose softness is a pleasure in itself, and the formula rises to the surface. Neither too much nor too little: by perfectly filtering the formula, the Cushion Polar technology releases just the right dose. With its new sleek and chic design, this new-generation cushion stands out even more.


Cushion Blush Subtil provides a healthy glow booster with an absolutely playful design and use. Based on the Air Cushion technology, its smooth, light and melt-away texture gives dazzling radiance to the face… while its pop pigments set off the cheekbones with a subtle touch of emotion. Available in six rosy or orange variations, this fun blush can be used to your heart’s desire by applying a single shade or combining several for a more “arty” look. A tip from Lisa Eldridge, Lancôme make-up creation director: match with lip colour for an ultra-sophisticated result.

Teint Idole Cushion RRP $65 or $95 with refill, Cushion Blush RRP $60
