Review of Lancome Teint Miracle by milkypop
I first saw this product in a magazine spread where they had a few readers mugshots printed on a full page.. their faces were almost life-sized so you could even see their pores and tiny facial hairs! They had a shot without makeup on, and a shot with just teint miracle on. It was amazing how natural the foundation looked and i don't think the images had been retouched or tampered with because i'm a photographer/graphic designer :) Then I tried this out at a mall on the back of my hand and found that the liquid was soft, runny with a super easy to spread consistency and blended in like a dream with no streaks, nor did it settle into the lines. And the price? Yup, it was just as expensive as it felt. I had just purchased a Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua (which i didn't love, though i love Chanel) so i thought i would keep the Lancome in mind for my next purchase.
Fast forward a year later at the airport where i found this for 10 dollars less and i bought it without hesitation. I used this throughout Winter and i LOVED it because it kept my skin hydrated, dewy and glowy. The magical part about this is that although it gives coverage, it feels very very light and it is almost undetectable. I'm almost through with my first bottle... and while there are new foundations from various brands with enticing new formulas popping out every season, i'm going to stick to Teint Miracle for one important reason - this has been the ONE and ONLY foundation that i can wear on my undereyes WITHOUT it settling into my fine lines. I have very terrible dark eye circles and i spent the last 10 years piling on alot of concealer which unfortunately made me look alot older than i am. After i discovered Teint Miracle, i could get away with just this and a light dab of Bobbi Brown Corrector! Hello fresh and hydrated undereyes. On a good day, i can skip the Bobbi Brown completely!
All i need is a half a pump to one pump to cover imperfections and even out my skintone and it feels so light and comfortable to wear! My ex-HG foundaiton was the Giorgio Armani face fabric because that was also super natural and texture-perfecting, but it had a semi-matte finish which i could probably get away with when i was younger, but now i crave for dewiness and hydration.
