Vichy's Teint Idéal Cream Foundation is available in 5 shades. I have the shades 25 Sand and 35 Rosy Sand.
25 Sand is slightly pinker than your typical NC20 shade, it has beige undertones. It's a lot lighter than the Teint Ideal Foundation Fluid in the same shade, which is the equivalent of NC30!!
35 Rosy Sand is similar to NW30, if you are familiar with MAC foundations. This shade runs a bit lighter than the Teint Ideal Foundation Fluid #35.
As you can see in the photo below, this foundation doesn't provide a lot of coverage. I would say that the coverage is light. The consistency is pretty thick, but easy to blend! It dries down to a luminous, slightly dewy finish.
It feels very hydrating and a bit tacky on the skin. When I remove my makeup at night, my skin is super soft! I can feel that the hyaluronic acid worked its magic!
The Teint Idéal Cream Foundation is a bit more luminous than the fluid version for normal to combination skin. The cream foundation offers less coverage too, but the formula is much more moisturizing.
It's too rich for me, to be completely honest. But to be fair, this foundation was specifically formulated for dry skin. If your skin is oily too, then you should try Vichy's Teint Idéal Fluid Foundation instead of the cream formula!
The Vichy Teint Idéal Illuminating Cream Foundation retail for $38 CAD for 30ml.
