When winter rolled around I was looking into getting a full coverage foundation. Foundation (for me) takes time to buy. I need to touch it, stare at it – full coverage really needs to mean full coverage but not so full it’s cakey. It also needs to make me look healthy. I am so pale and dull in the winter that a good dose of “glow” is something I look for. So off I went to Sephora because I was feeling especially snobby and was looking for higher end for some reason. The lovely sales lady found my skin match number with their fantastic hand held skin tone matching machine-thing and we were off! We picked about 3 or 4 to try out and she would apply it to my face, I would wait and see how it settled and felt and then rinse and repeat. What patience she had. Fast forward to lord knows how much later it was but I had chosen the Teint Miracle by Lancôme. This foundation is buildable but pulls off full coverage beautifully WITHOUT being cakey. It is the right amount of dewy without making you look greasy and pleasurable to put on your face. It lasted me from the beginning of winter to about a week ago and I wore it every friggin day. It did not aggravate my acne prone skin and it has about a 9 hour wear.This was probably the best full coverage foundation I have ever owned. It was so hydrating on top of it all. I don’t have dry skin normally but tend to be dryer in the winter. I won’t be repurchasing this as we head into summer because I think it would be too heavy for hot weather. Over all this is a fantastic foundation. If you’re in the market for dewy, hydrating and full coverage, give this a try – heck head to Sephora and get them to colour match you and put it on! I guarantee you will love it.
