Lancôme Teint Miracle - 010 beige porcelain

25 comments
Hello everyone!

After postponing it for a long time I finally decided to review this foundation which I have been using for the last month. I have always wanted to try Lancôme's foundations and after negotiating with myself for some time I decided that the Teint Miracle would be my ideal match!



I was lucky enough to buy it on a discount at Feelunique's Christmas sale so it cost me only 22 pounds (its normal price is 37). I was a bit afraid to buy this foundation without trying out the shades first, but unfortunately I haven't found the place in Croatia where they would have samples of these lighter shades. So this purchase was a huge gamble but luckily and thanks to all the other bloggers who reviewed it in the past, I managed to find my perfect shade.



SHADE: My shade is 010 beige porcleain. And although it is sometimes being presented the as lightest shade - it's not. There are also shades 005 (ivory white) and 007 (pinkish-rose) so this is actually the third shade in the range. But don't think it makes a big difference - it is still extremely pale and perfect for my skin without making me look like a ghost. There are 18 shades in total which is really a lot and everyone can find their match among them.




COVERAGE: It is supposed to give you light coverage, but in my opinion you can even consider it medium. It won't cover up heavy imperfections or if you have acne scars etc., but it covers most of my redness and gives the skin a flawless finish. I would compare the coverage to the Garnier's BB cream, but the finish is prettier and the skin looks more healthy and radiant.




AURA INSIDE EFFECT: This foundation is known for the aura inside effect which makes your skin glow from the inside - making it appear more healthy and dewy. I love this effect because even when I'm tired or my skin looks grey, this will instantly lift it up and make it seem more refreshed. Lancôme describes it as a natural light creator and says that it contains pearlescent pigments which give a dewy, radiant finish. The skin looks brighter and smoother.

WHO CAN WEAR THIS? It is a light foundation but perhaps not suitable for those with oily skin because of the dewy/shiny effect mentioned before. I personally don't have issues with it and I like to have glowy skin but if you're a fan of matte finishes skip this one. I think it is ok for people with sensitive skin (such as mine), this foundation never caused me any breakouts or allergies.

PACKAGE & SCENT: Teint Miracle is packed inside a nice glass bottle which looks really expensive and high end. I was afraid to touch it when I first opened it :D The foundation itself changes colors in the sun and has a really nice radiance which you can see even from the bottle. It smells really good - like flowers, roses - like Bourjois (if you ever had anything from them you will know what I mean). The only foundation with the similar scent, as far as I know, is the Bourjois Healthy Mix serum. 





LONGEVITY: It lasts for a nice amount of time - the only problem is, if you're prone to sweating it will start glowing even more so bring up some napkins with you. But it lasts throughout the day and I had no problems with oxidation or anything of that sort.

HOW IT LOOKS LIKE ON MY SKIN (no filters, natural lighting)





FINAL VERDICT: It is one of the best foundations I have ever tried, honestly. The shade is perfect for me and even though it covers most of my imperfections it makes me feel like I'm not wearing any foundation at all which is great. I love how light it is and how young and healthy my skin looks when I wear it. The only problem is the price - it is very expensive and not for everyone's budget. If you really like this foundation but don't have the money to afford it - try the L'oreal's Lumi Magique foundation or Bourjois's Healthy Mix Serum. In my opinion these two are the closest dupes although none of them are as good as this is. I will definitely repurchase the Teint Miracle and hopefully on a discount again!


Have you tried any Lancome foundations? If you have what's your opinion on them - are they worth the hype? Share with me :)

  8. Thanks! :D I've been using the L'oreal True Match for ages and it was great (and Bourjois Healthy Mix serum for some time) but I think this one is better, although I'm not sure it's 3-4 times better as the price suggests hehe :) try out some samples first!

  10. Imala sam ga i voljela. Kad sam ga potrosila kupila sam Ultra 24 koji je za nijansu bolji za moju mjesovitu kozu. Svakako preporucam ovaj puder :)

  11. Da, htjela bih probati i Idole Ultra 24h, jedva sam se odlucila između ta dva :) stvarno je posebna formula u Miracleu..:) hvala ti na komentaru!

  12. I heard great things about this foundation! Even Michelle Pham uses it. I wonder how's it like for oily skin.

  13. Well, I have combination skin - it's sometimes dry and sometimes oily, and it does make my skin "shine" even more, but not in a bad way so I think that even if you have oily skin you could wear this :) but if you don't like the glow, maybe you should try their other foundation - Teint idole ultra 24h! Thanks for your comment :)

  15. Na wish listi je već jako dugo, samo nisam shvatila da li je žut ili roza ton tvoja nijansa 010?

    1. E nije nijedan! I to mi se svidja. Nijansa ti je porcelain sto bi znacilo boja bjelokosti/svijetlo bež...meni zute nijanse ne pasu, a roze su mi ok, ali ovo je najneutralnije sto sam uspjela pronaci. Ako si svijetle puti, ova nijansa ce ti super odgovarati :)

  16. I have been using the Lancome Teint Idole 010 for past few years and I love it. You only need a tiny bit as it gives such good coverage. As you said you do not feel as if you are wearing a foundation as it does not feel heavy on the skin. It covers blemmishes and gives such a porcelain finish which I love. It is worth the money as last so long and you do not need to retouch your make up. Flawless finish and so many shades to choose from. Interesting reading your blog,
