Hi lovelies, another day, another foundation review. Recently we talked about Estée Lauder Double wear foundation (you can read it here) and today its again a high end brand only!
So,as an oily skin girl I want a foundation which is glowy but not oily, dewy but not greasy. But it’s virtually impossible to find one that does the job properly. Getting a balanced foundation is a big struggle, either they’re too light in coverage or they leave me way too oily and I end up looking like a strobe light. Also my skin has different shades in summers and winters.
So, Today’s article is about Lancôme Paris’s best selling teint miracle foundation. I usually prefer this in winters or at nights. I am NC32 in M.A.C. and the shade I use in Lancôme is 045,Sable Beige which is darker than my skin but mixing it with my Clinique gives me my apt shade.So lets see what this foundation claims and delivers.
About the brand:

Inactive Ingredients: Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Alcohol Denat, Phenyl Trimethicone, Glycerin, PEG-10 Dimethicone, Bis-PEG/PPG-14/14 Dimethicone, PEG/PPG/Polybutylene Glycol-8/5/3 Glycerin, Rosa Gallica Flower Extract, Talc, Dimethicone, Dimethicone/Polyglycerin-3 Crosspolymer, Methicone, Alumina, Aluminum Hydroxide, Magnesium Sulfate, Disodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Ethylhexyl Hydroxystearate, Polyethylene Glycol, Tocopheryl Acetate; May Contain: Red 28 Lake, Red 7, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Blue 1 Lake, Bismuth Oxychloride, Iron Oxides.
It has a liquidy gel texture which is common amongst most of the high end foundations.It goes on smoothly and doesn’t dry out easily.
It provides good sheer but leaning towards medium coverage and has a nice radiant finish to it. Even with a second and third layer, it still looks very natural. It is buildable so it does cover blemishes, spots and marks.
Directions to use:
AED 250 (approx 4000 INR) for 30 ml
- It is not idle for oily skin or humid weather. It does have an instant glow but later becomes oily and greasy for oily face.But an apt product for dry skin or winters.
- It does come off on the clothes.
- It doesn’t cover scars and dark spots.
- It is quite pricey.
So, in a nutshell, All I can say is that it really makes my skin look like flawless porcelain. There’s no visible pores, blemishes or lines. It just smooths everything! There is a teeny tiny bit of transfer which is possibly the only downside but I haven’t noticed any smudges on my clothes, except my phone. I look like I’m wearing a BB cream but with a foundation that covers my imperfections.I totally love it.
So I hope you like this review.I’ll see you guys soon!
Until next time.
