Lancome Nude Miracle Foundation


It's a good time to be a foundation fan. The past couple months have seen a wealth of new launches  , none more so than in the fluid foundation category.

New from Lancome is Nude Miracle.   They define it as a liquid to powder  makeup with a weightless feel and  that describes it really well.

The foundation is a thin but not runny thin liquid that applies and blends so easily. ( I use fingers not the attached wand). It sets to a semi matte finish. It's not quite totally matte  and isn't dry looking or feeling on skin .  The formula has a slicker feel than a  true matte and I did notice  in the ingredients that this isn't  oil free.  Rosa canina fruit  oil is listed about midway down the ingredient list.  

The foundation is  not in any way oily or dewy but I thought that needed mentioning. This is a good choice for oily skins  and I found that it kept the oil at bay pretty well except in the T Zone after several hours. That's normal for me with almost any foundation  especially when it's warm out.  I think this  makes it a possible great choice for winter's cold months for those with slightly oily to normal skins , which is basically where I fall in that season.

Coverage is light to medium , leaning more medium and it is buildable for a soft focus, smoothed skin look that feels barely there.  SPF is 15.

Lancome has always been a foundation fav of mine . I think my first ever was one of theirs  and Nude Miracle keeps that tradition going.

Lancome Nude Miracle Foundation is $ 42  , comes in 14 shades ( shown is 110 Ivoire)  and is currently exclusive to  Sephora  .
