Radiance in a bottle: Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation

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?

    Hi Andreea,

    I think it looks lovely on you-seems to be a good colour match and looks really natural and dewy.

    The foundation looks quite yellow in the container and on your hand thought. Was it an expensive foundation?

    Btw, I emailed you back about the problems that you were having with commenting on my blog 🙂

    Hi Alethea,

    It looks orange on the first photos because it was taken with the iphone + loads of artificial light. I was in bed with the laptop writing the post and felt too lazy to get the camera lol. The face photo was taken with a normal camera.
    In reality is a nice beige color, not to light not to dark. This shade actualy is the most wearable for day time from the lot.

    Hi hun, 03 its yellow based and seems to be the most popular shade for a medium skin. At the moment i got the 02 (slight pink undertone) because im terribly pale and even the 03 is too dark. Try a sample first in the shop and see how you like it xxxx

    Hi Andreea,

    are you sure this is the right Lancome packaging? I could only find bottles written in black at the local stores here in germany. The writting read – BARE SKIN FOUNDATION and not bare skin PERFECTION.

    What do you think?
