I’m sure most of you have heard about this new foundation launch from Lancome. If not, let me tell you a little bit about it. Teint Miracle claims to be the “holy grail” of foundations. It claims to be super light, water based sheer texture but rich enough to give a perfect complexion.
Where traditional foundations play with the surface colour of skin using pigments, Teint Miracle has new ingredients that hope to aid the absorption and refraction of light. With 10 times less opaque fillers and almost 40% water it seems incredible that this could create a flawless complexion and recreate skin’s natural light. It certainly sounds promising, interesting and impossible! Oh and it also offers SPF of 15.
Firstly, I love the packaging, it’s a lovely glass bottle, elegant, like a perfume bottle with a pump.It goes on so easily, I’ve stippled, used fingers and a traditional foundation brush, all work well, although stippling is fab and is the method I used in the following pictures. It really does feel weightless on the skin, doesn’t dry too quickly to work with and it looks great as I will now (hopefully!) demonstrate.
Here it is in shade and light, applied on it’s own, no other make up. Please enlarge for a good look.
And here it is set with a little powder and with my eye makeup on.
And a close up of the finish, please feel free to enlarge.
Well for me I really think this might be my holy grail foundation, great coverage, looks natural, fantastic match to my skin, long wearing (it lasts all day on me with no problems), it’s glowy but not oily and it feels like I don’t have anything on. I don’t have much more to say about it than that, I think in this case the pictures do the talking.
Available from Selfridges now but available nationwide from 1st September and retailing for £25. Go get it!
