Review: Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation

''Lancôme's Teint Miracle helps you achieve bare skin perfection and natural-looking radiance''
''Teint Miracle works to help recreate and boost the skin’s luminosity. Upon application, the complexion appears flawless and luminous, as if lit-from-within.''

This foundation has become my favourite foundation of all time, I agree with every single thing they say about this foundation. It definitely does help me achieve the ''bare skin perfection and natural-looking radiance''; it definitely makes my skin look natural and I haven't had a problem with it being cakey. I wouldn't say it's dewy or matt but it's in the middle, which is perfect as it looks super natural and the finish is lovely.



I would say this is foundation is medium coverage but buildable, I find its best applied using fingers as it gives the most natural finish. The shade I own is 04 Beige Nature, and it's a perfect match for my skin tone; the colour range is fantastic as there is a colour that would suit everyone. I find with some brands the colours are either too pink or too yellow but I find the colour selection for this foundation has some really realistic colours and they do actually look like real skin colours. Sometimes when I'm in a rush I don't bother to wear concealer because this foundation conceals scars, blemishes so well and well enough not to bother with concealer.

I personally like the packaging, the product itself is in a glass bottle and it looks and feels expensive to me. Packaging is always a bonus with products.

I've used this foundation everyday for about 5 months now and I haven't even used half. I use about 1 pump for my face and I find that's more than enough. The formula isn't runny or thick but it is in-between. The foundation lasts around 7-8 hours on me, before it starts to slightly fade, however I do need powder after around 2-3 hours as i'm looking slightly oily but that's nothing a bit of powder can't fix! You can prolong foundation wear by using a primer. I personally think this foundation is best suited to people with normal, combination and dry skin. If you have oily skin I don't think this would work for you because I have dry skin and I start getting slightly oily around 2-3 hours but I love the finish this foundation gives and it definitely gives me a healthy glow.

Overall I love this foundation and I would definitely recommend it and re-purchase it when it runs out.

You get 30ml in a bottle, which is the average foundation size and the foundation retails at £27 and its available from most department stores. LINK

Whats your favourite foundation?

  4. I bet this is lovely and light to wear on the skin in the Summer, but I'm so scared now of wasting money on high end foundations. I've tried everything from Dior to MAC, but the best one I've found yet is one from No 7 at Boots :)
