Hello hello! ^^
How you are all doing this weekend?
For this post, I will review one of my fave foundation, it’s from Lancome, and in case you haven’t read my previous post about it, you can read it here.
This post is special because I’m experimenting with the new layout and I try to be more organized so it’s easier to read. It’s an extra effort for me to do, but it’s all for you, my lovely readers! ^^
Please comment if you have any opinion, ok?
I’m all about cute layout these days, hehe..
* Packaging *
The top cap has Lancome rose engraved on it. Very elegant.. ^^
It has a pump bottle so it’s more hygienic and easy to use. For me, 2 pumps is enough.
On the back of the packaging, there’s Japanese & English writing on it. I read it somewhere it’s because the Asian shade sold in here was formulated in Japan. The shades types are O – Ochre, BO – Beige Ochre and PO – Pink Ochre.
My shade is PO-03. It has a more pink undertone and it’s the lighter one compare to the PO-045.
For color reference, my skin is NC25 on MAC, but now I tend to get lighter to NC20, since I’m using Vit C Serum.
Description from the website, here:
Lancome Teint Miracle Liquid Foundation
Natural Light Creator
Bare Skin Perfection
Fresh Foundation Veil - SPF 16/PA++
A light emanates from the most beautiful skins. We can reproduce it.
10 years of research, 7 patents pending: Lancôme invents its 1st foundation that recreates the Aura of perfect skin. A miracle of light for a new natural perfection. Instantly, complexion appears lit-from-within. Sublimely bare, truly flawless.
BARE SKIN PERFECTION, WITHOUT THE SHADOW OF A FLAW

- A SKINCARE COMPLEX rich in soothing rose extract, for 18 hour hydration* and an increasing skin luminosity, day after day, even after make-up removal.
SPF 16/PA++. Optimal comfort. Suitable for sensitive skin.
* Smell *
It has a very faint smell of rose, it’s floral-ish to my nose, but it’s not too much since it’s designed for sensitive skin.
* Texture *
The texture is very runny and lightweight. It’s very watery since it contains 40% of water, therefore it won’t clog the pores. For the application, I’m using brush, because it’s easier to control the coverage. If I’m using sponge, I’m afraid the sponge will ‘eat up’ all the foundie, hehe.
* Color swatch *
This is how PO-03 looks like. The pink undertone makes my skin not too yellow than the normal Ochre shade. I think it looks a bit pale here, don’t you think? But it will blend in perfectly to the skin, no worries.. ^^
The finished result is very dewy and gives a subtle glow to the skin. My face appears more radiant and even after I set the foundie with my mineral loose powder, it doesn’t look cakey. Love! ^^
* Coverage *
On my face, the coverage is medium to almost full. It covers the redness well, but because my face has a lot of blemishes and acne scar, so I still need concealer to completely cover it.
* Staying power *
I’ve been using this for my office makeup for quite some time now, and I’ll have to say, I’m impressed! The staying power is very good and will last about 10 hour plus. I still have to blot every 4-5 hours or so, but it’s because I usually go outside to grab my lunch, so I have to face the heavy pollution here in Jakarta, say that to my super oily skin… Duh! T__T
But other than that, the foundation stays on my skin and still makes my face picture perfect till the end of the day..
* Conclusion *
Overall, I really like this foundation, it’s my honest opinion. The texture is very lightweight and it gives me a dewy finish plus glowy complexion, which I adore. I think it’s a really great product and a must try for all of you. Beware though, you’ll fall in love with it, hehe.. X)
Alright then, see you at the next post! ^^
Good nite, lovelies..
