I’m sure you all know that Lancome launched a new breakthrough foundation this month, that its going to revolutionize once more the art of makeup. After 10 years of research and 7 patents, let me introduce you to *drum rolls* Teint Miracle foundation!
Teint Miracle promises to give your skin instant radiance, luminosity and that “barely there” type of finish. There is a lot of science behind it, “Aura-Inside” technology that recreates your inner light effect, is just one but im not going to bore you to death with it.
I have been using it daily since i got it, almost three weeks ago. This was the only foundation i had with me on holiday, so i only used this without cheating with other foundations.
First, i have to tell you that my skin is combination/oily, i don’t need major coverage but i like a medium to full one, just to have a nice canvas for eyeshadow and blush. Miracle offers a buildable coverage, which means you can layer the foundation depending on the desirable look.
What i usually do is apply it with my fingers all over the face and the insisting with a foundation brush on the areas where i feel i need a bit more coverage. The result is very natural, and yes i can notice a nice radiance added to my skin. Also, it didnt break me out.
Texture wise is very hydrating (40% water content) and has an added SPF 15. Some people might not like this, but it has a faint scent of roses due to the natural extract. I don’t mind fragrance in my skincare as I’m not allergic, but i know some people dislike it.
The only issue i have with the foundation, is that its not meant to add pressed powder on top of it because you are killing the luminosity/radiance effect. It actually makes sense, a dewy makeup means maximum light reflection…powder kills it, by matifying. After a couple of days with terrible oily t-zone i had to compromise and use a pressed powder on the shiny areas, avoiding the cheeks.
Here is me sporting the 03 Beige Diaphane shade. Looks a tad darker in real life.
Overall i like it a lot for day to day use, but i wouldn’t use it at night time. By being a radiance foundation, it reflects the light so you look like a ghost in flash photography. I learned that the hard way lol.
What do you think, do we have an yay or nay?
