I haven’t written a foundation review in quite a while even though I promised I’d share all of my foundations with you. I’m rectifying that with Lancome Teint Miracle, one of my favorites.
When Teint Miracle was introduced there was a lot of talk about it but it seems like there is always something new coming out to push aside your favorites and make you want something else. No matter what else has come out, this still remains one I pull out often.
My first pictures show you 3 of the foundations in my current rotation. MAC Pro Longwear Foundation reviewed here and Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle foundation reviewed here. I wanted to show the differences in colors that I pick out and feel comfortable wearing. Lancome Teint Miracle is the one I feel matches me the best.
Lancome Teint Miracle is described as “lift from within makeup”. It comes in 16 shades and costs $37. I, obviously, wear very fair foundation shades and my shade is Ivoire IN
Here’s what Lancome-USA.com has to say about the foundation:

Here’s what I have to say about the foundation:
Lancome Teint Miracle is the first Lancome foundation that I’ve liked enough to buy. What drew me to it were the raves from people online about the beautiful finish it has. But what made me buy it is how it looked on my skin. I was lucky enough to get a friendly salesperson at Nordstrom who made me generous samples of two shades so that I could see if the foundation worked for me and which shade would be best. I chose Ivoire 1N since it was the most neutral and matched the best.
The consistency is a very thin liquid but don’t let that fool you. The pigmentation in it is great and you need such a small amount. The picture below shows one pump which is really too much for my entire face.
The coverage starts out medium but you could build it if you wanted. I don’t like to put too much on though since it can pool up around my nose or glasses if I have too much on. It has a slightly dewy look with a teeny bit of shimmer to it. It’s not glitter and no one will notice it, but there is a little shimmer that helps lighten your look. It just gives a healthy glow. Best of all this has no fragrance which is something uber important to me personally.
Even though Lancome Teint Miracle isn’t the new gal on the block, it’s still the gal you need to introduce yourself to. I think you could be very good friends. — Marcia
