Lancome’s Tient Idole Ultra 24 Hours foundation is absolutely amazing!

Over the summer I got pretty brown, so I had to hit up Sephora for a darker foundation. Lacome is easily my favorite foundation, so I picked up this, and oh my word people, it’s insane. What I love about Lancome is it is foundation – without feeling like foundation! You don’t even know you’re wearing it! It goes on smooth and then dries into a powder-smooth finish. It stays on ALL DAY, and has complete coverage! OH! And it’s SPF 15. LOVE IT!!

What it is:
A perfecting foundation with 24-hour staying power.

What it does:
This velvety smooth foundation blends effortlessly for shine-free, round-the-clock comfort. Retouching throughout the day is unnecessary with this expert formula, which took Lancome eight years of research to perfect and unveil. Available in an impressively wide range of shades, Teint Idole Ultra 24H provides all skintones flawless, even, complexion-perfecting coverage.

Pink named the newest face of CoverGirl!

Pink has just been named the newest face of CoverGirl! She follows in the footsteps of Taylor Swift, Sofia Vergara, Drew Barrymore, Ellen Degeneres and Queen Latifah. Pink Tweeted the news by posting this picture, saying “Guess who’s the new COVERGIRL!!!!!!!!!!!”

More from People:

The CoverGirls had better look out — there’s a tough new girl in town. Pink was named the newest face of the beauty brand Monday, joining Taylor Swift, Sofia Vergara, Drew Barrymore, Ellen DeGeneres and Queen Latifah (plus two Olympic stars).

“Joining a group of women who have always inspired me — to laugh out loud, let my guard down, or play around with my beauty look — is such an honor,” the singer says in a release. “I have a lot to celebrate. I called my new album The Truth About Love, and the truth is that I have my beautiful family and baby girl, my new music and now my partnership with CoverGirl to love.”

“Pink is a powerful and provocative role model, who has always been an advocate of individualism and making no apologies for who you are,” adds CoverGirl vice president and general manager Esi Eggleston Bracey. “We love the energy and confidence that she radiates, and the fact that inside and out she’s as cool as she looks. She’s an awesome addition to our CoverGirl family.”

Going hand-in-hand with that image, Pink will first promote what the brand is touting as a “bold new mascara innovation,” and celebrate “beauty with an edge” through all of her campaigns. Her first ads will debut this fall.

I’ve been reading a lot about how Pink’s not a “traditional” choice for CoverGirl. Why’s that? Because she’s not beautiful enough? Not girly enough? I’m not the world’s biggest Pink fan, but I think she makes a great spokesperson for CG. The 33-year-old will do really well, I believe.

CoverGirl released a statement on the new pairing. “With the signing of Pink, COVERGIRL is celebrating ‘Beauty with an Edge’ and who better to deliver that message than someone who embodies art and attitude. Pink and COVERGIRL are looking to inspire women to celebrate their individuality and never settle for a single beauty standard.”

What do you think about CG picking Pink to be the new face of their line? Good choice?
