Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation Review, Swatch, FOTD-
Hey my pretties 🙂
Going to Sephora is really bad for my pocket. Like, really really bad :-/ I meant to go & just check out a few new launches & instead ended up selling off 1 of my kidneys in exchange for Lancome & Becca :'( Arrghh but how could I help myself after the S.A glided this beautiful foundation on my face & I stared at the mirror at my illuminated radiant yet bare looking skin? So I caved in 😐 I was matched to the shade 02 Lys Rose BTW.
What Lancome Says-
Lancôme science discovers the inner light of perfect skin and recreates it.
Light is not only reflected on the surface it is also naturally re-emitted from deep within the skin. This is skin’s inner light. At its peak, this surface radiance (1) and inner light (3) constitute skin’s aura.
When visible light reaches skin, it begins a real journey:
- 5% of light is reflected: this is skin’s surface radiance (1)
- 95% penetrates skin and interacts with the epidermis and dermis. 55% is absorbed (2) and 40% is re-emitted at the surface (3) this is skin’s inner light.

My take on the Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation-
The packaging is luxurious to say the least,,like all Lancome products are ^_^ The foundation comes in a sturdy glass bottle though with a pump dispenser & a tight cap. Not an ideal choice if you are going to travel with it & I poured some out into a small tub last weekend for my trip.
The texture is beautiful, lightweight & so smooth honestly I was transfixed the first time the S.A applied it on my skin! It was just swish & poof! Vanish! Even after application, I cannot feel anything on my skin, no layer, no feeling- just walking with my bare skin, except of course, I have never seen it look so natural yet radiant & well-rested <3
I never have to use a brush/sponge for the application of this product & always use fingers. Laziness personified- that’s me. It applies amazingly well, spreads smoothly & disappears without a trace & my skin looks & feels awesome. I use a light moisturizer underneath usually & it neither dries out my skin nor makes it oilier.
Coverage wise, this is a sheer-medium buildable foundation which is what I prefer because I don’t have much skin issues touchwood & my dark circles do peek through somewhat. I am not complaining honestly, because my skin otherwise looks & feels so natural, radiant & flawless <3
My shade is 02 Lys Rose which is a lighter shade with pink undertones (I am around nw 25 in MAC) & it matches me perfectly. Since the formula is so sheer & light though, you can get away with a slight shade mismatch as well.
The foundation lasts on my skin all day with a light brushing of setting powder on top & it does not melt or feather off even in the summer 🙂
Pros of the Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation:
1> Luxurious packaging 🙂
2> Amazingly fluid, light texture- a dream to apply & blend.
3> Skin feels bare without any residue & looks radiant & flawless <3
4> Sheer-medium coverage perfect for everyday/daytime looks.
5> Formulated with natural extracts to soothe & calm skin.
6> Fragrance free for sensitive skin.
7> Comes with SPF 15.
Cons of the Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation:
The glass bottle is certainly not travel friendly 🙁
Swatch of the Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation-
My Rating: 4.8/5!
Do I recommend the Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation?
Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation is the most expensive foundation I have ever bought & it does live up to all it claims *_* It’s just what I desire in my base- lightweight, radiant, sheer & it does not aggravate my skin or make it drier/oilier 🙂 It enhances the radiance of skin & makes me look flawless & not made up, if that makes sense 😛 Highly recommended if you like sheer glowy foundations!
