If Lupita Nyong'o's July Vogue cover didn't satisfy your monthly Lupita quota, we have good news: An image of the actress's first campaign for Lancôme has arrived on her Instagram account and it is #flawless.

The ad highlights Lancôme's Teint Idole Ultra 24H foundation (conveniently listed as one of Nyong'o's favorite products on the brand's site). Of course Nyong'o looks luminous in the image–would you expect anything less?!–but as our editorial assistant Eliza Brooke noted, there's something a little safe about the makeup in the photo. Where's the blue eyeshadow, golden lip gloss and double bun hairstyle we come to expect from Nyong'o?

OK, OK we might have gotten a little carried away (this is an ad for foundation after all), but here's to hoping that Nyong'o's next Lancôme ad incorporates some of her daring beauty choices.
