Today’s post is going to be a Lancome Miracle Cushion Review. The Lancome Miracle Cushion Foundation* is quite exciting to me because I’ve had cushion foundations have been on my radar for quite some time. I’ve been super curious about them but all of the ones I previously wanted to try were way too light for my skin colour.
About a month ago I went to the reveal of the new Lancome in store displays at Bourke Street Myer. An incredible thing about these new displays is that the common problem of being colour matched incorrectly has been solved. The mirrors have lighting on the sides which can be adjusted according to your skin colour and the time of day you would be wearing the foundation for example day, evening or during work, as well as intensity of the light.
A little goodie we all received for attending the event was their new Miracle Cushion foundation and what do you know, because of this new display technology, I finally have a cushion foundation that matches me.
For starters, this foundation smells lovely. It has the typical rose Lancome scent and what’s interesting is that I usually don’t like rose scented products, but the Lancome one, I don’t know why but I love it. One other thing I want to quickly mention is that this foundation is labelled as being dewy, hydrating, weightless and provides glow, as well as being SPF23.
As the name suggests, when you press the little applicator sponge into the product, it is of a cushiony and bouncy texture. The amount of product it dispenses is based on the amount of pressure that you use.
Yes this product claims to be dewy and yes I am oily, but wow this is definitely lightweight. When I touch my face there is a teeny bit of stickiness but nothing that cannot be solved with a tiny bit of powder, which I would always have to use anyway.
This foundation can be applied as a primer for a heavier foundation, used as your only foundation, or used on top of the foundation you applied earlier. The packaging makes this product incredible for popping in your bag because it is not going to spill anywhere and you don’t need a brush.
The coverage is definitely light but can be built up to medium, or heavy if you really pack it on. I personally think that I would find myself reaching for this in the day time, especially when I’m in a rush.
Lasting power wise, on my oily skin it isn’t too fabulous. Probably a good 4 hours before I start to feeling ‘uh oh’, but as mentioned earlier the packaging makes it easy to take with you to re-apply. I think it would be more suited to skin types that aren’t as oily, but definitely don’t cross it off your list if you are oily. I think you should try it out in store and see how it goes, because this is definitely a time saver product.
Have you tried any cushion foundations or Lancome foundations before?
