Lancome – Tient Miracle

January 5th, 2011

This is a real ‘Miracle’ foundation. I’m not a huge fan of Lancome foundations, but when I recieved a sample of this in my Vogue Magazine I was instantly drawn!


Teint Miracle claims to be the “holy grail” of foundations. It claims to be super light, water based sheer texture but rich enough to give a perfect complexion.

Firstly, I love the packaging, it’s a lovely glass bottle, elegant, like a perfume bottle with a pump.It goes on so easily, I’ve stippled, used fingers and a traditional foundation brush, all work well, although stippling is fab and is the method I used. It really does feel weightless on the skin, doesn’t dry too quickly to work with and it looks so great!

Where traditional foundations play with the surface colour of skin using pigments, Teint Miracle has new ingredients that hope to aid the absorption and refraction of light.  With 10 times less opaque fillers and almost 40% water it seems incredible that this could create a flawless complexion and recreate skin’s natural light. It certainly sounds promising, interesting and impossible! Oh and it also offers SPF of 15.

The particles in the liquid light essence are five times smaller than mother-of-pearl pigments traditionally used in light-reflecting foundations. As such, the skin looks luminous, not shiny. Unlike mother-of-pearl whose reflections are more irregular, the micro-particles diffuse light uniformly and offer better surface radiance.

What do Lancome Say?

“Combining optical research with biology, Lancome has developed Aura-Inside technology, a natural light creator composed of new-generation bioptic pigments and a ‘liquid light essence’. These special ingredients optimise the skin’s surface radiance and bring out the skin’s inner light.”


As a compliment to this foundation, Lancome has also created Multi-Lights Touch Corrector Bare Skin Perfection Pen, a concealer/highlighter, using the same technology.

This is a non-comedogenic foundation is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

Be sure to go to your local Lancome counter and ask for a sample…I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I did!
