This is a foundation that I have been trialing on and off for quite some time as I have never been 100% sure on exactly how I feel about it. I was looking for a lightweight, light to medium coverage foundation and a number of people recommended Lancome Teint Miracle so I went out and purchased it. It is heralded as the ‘bare skin’ foundation and every man and his dog seem to love it. I went to Debenhams in the Trafford Centre originally to get matched up, and the lady on the counter matched me to 03 which looked pretty okay in the store but when I left and went in to natural light, it was way too dark. I didn’t actually notice this until I got home so I couldn’t even return it. Disaster! I went to another Debenhams nearer to where I live and was matched to 02, a much lighter shade, which matched pretty near perfect although I do find that this foundation does oxidise a little on the orange side. Teint Miracle feels extremely hydrating and lightweight on the skin, which I really liked. It felt like I didn’t have any make up on at all but as a serial matte foundation lover, I did struggle to adapt to the dewy finish that this foundation gave. My skin felt smooth and well hydrated, even when it was super dry. It was so alien to me that I kept telling myself ‘no Erin, your face doesn’t look sweaty’ and I was blotting every hour or so out of paranoia. My skin type is naturally quite oily but even when it was extremely dry on Roaccutane, it still looked far too dewy for my liking. I’m all about the lit from within glow but probably not to this extent. The foundation was extremely wet and it blended in to the skin effortlessly and really well – this made it really easy to build, allowing me to get the coverage that I wanted. Medium coverage all the way. You only need a really small amount of this foundation to cover your entire face due to the fluidity of it. I found that Lancome’s Teint Miracle Foundation did have a slight fragrance to it, a little alchol smelling if anything, but nothing that I couldn’t deal with – it wasn’t unbearable. I think that Teint Miracle is a nice foundation for those who really love a dewy finish on their skin and although I did like it and it felt lovely on my skin, I didn’t love it so I probably wouldn’t purchase it again. This isn’t one for the lovers of matte I’m afraid. I much prefer Lancome’s Teint Idole Ultra 24H Foundation to Teint Miracle.
