A couple of weeks back, I had blogged about Lancôme's latest foundation, which is the Maqui Miracle. Click HERE for product information and shades.
In this entry, I will be showing you how I apply the foundation, and my overall thoughts on Maqui Miracle. The shade I am using is BO-01 which is a cool-toned lightest shade. My Teint Miracle is a BO-02 though. Be sure to get color matched at the counters!
I have been using the Maqui Miracle for the past 2 weeks or so, on and off. Sometimes I use it as a setting powder, sometimes as a touch up compact. The most impressive past about this foundation for me is that it is incredibly smooth, and light.
The sponge that comes with the Maqui Miracle is also great for application and blending, because of its dual sided faces, and you can deposit and blend product onto your face flawlessly.
Ok, let's get on with the application routine -- my bare face, prepped with Lancôme base and concealer. Pardon my very tired face and heavy lids. :p
And the HALF FACE results:
It is not like you can see a 'layer' of foundation over my face, but there is a obvious smoothing of the skin texture, which is largely due to the ultra fine powder, amino acid coating powder, and pouncing powder.
Some more pictures:
I later slapped on the Lancôme L'Absolu Rouge in #180 (LOTD in the next entry) for some colour. Notice how my complexion is brightened up instantly.
For maximum longevity of the product, I would recommend using this foundation as a setting powder. It is great to take in your bag for touch ups, especially in our humid condition.
If your complexion is not as oily/ combination as mine, you mostly probably can get away with using this foundation on its own, as it does provide decent coverage.
The foundation looks even better after it has settled in your skin after some time. It did not oxidize on my skin. True color stays the whole time.
The dual-sided sponge here is a great application tool, though I have used it with a large powder brush before, to dust the powder all over my face like a loose powder.
That's all, I hope you find this helpful, and thanks for looking. If you have any other questions, do leave them in the comments below.
