Lancome Teint Miracle
Advantages: A really good foundation.
Disadvantages: The price is a little high.
From previous reviews you may have read of mine, you may understand I am a very lightweight make-up lover, and only wear make-up when going out/ special occasions. However, when I do decide to purchase make-up, I ensure it is a recommended brand, which, from what I have heard, Lancome is, although I had never used any Lancome products before, or even heard of the Teint Miracle foundation.
The foundation was £27, not an ideal price for a part-time student/employee, so I was taking a big risk purchasing this. The foundation promises long lasting results however, so I decided to bite my tongue and purchase, disregarding the price (Which I will still agree now, was a little bit expensive).
The bottle is glass, with a clear plastic lid, practical as you can see how much foundation you have left. The bottle has a pump on the top, which, when pumped once entirely, gives you around a fingerfull of foundation, more than enough to cover your face evenly. The product is SPF 15, so great for all seasons, and oil free, which is good news for those with oily skin.
I used a full pump to apply to my face, however, have started using only half a pump now, as I feel that is enough. The foundation is a lovely consistency and although the colour I purchased was a little bit darker than I thought (I should of listened to the customer assistant!), it still didn't make my face look patchy, streaky, or my face look darker than the rest of my skin. I have yet to find myself going back and forth to the club toilets with this foundation, as it lasts a good few hours before even beginning to fade.
The foundation adapted lovely to my skin, and doesn't dry out my skin either. It is a lovely consistency and you do not need a lot of it to ensure even coverage. I am happy with the colour and the foundation has added extras, such as SPF 15 which makes it even better. After trying this foundation, I would purchase it again. It lasts a lot longer than any other foundation I have used, and is just overall better quality than your highstreet brands.
I do not have any disadvantages to the product, apart from, the pump very occasionally becomes a bit clogged up, in which it just needs a wipe with a tissue, not a great deal at all.
I would recommend this product to anyone wanting to spend a good price on a good foundation. £27 is a bit costly for a student, but, the money is worth it. I will continue trying out new foundations, but this will definitely be topping the list.
Summary: Would purchase again.
