I love foundation – and I have enough in my collection to justify my statement – but can I just take a minute to lament on how DIFFICULT it was to find a review of the new Lancome Miracle Cushion Foundation in my shade?! I don’t think any beauty bloggers with dark skintones had actually been sent this foundation to triy – which is a bit dubious as Lupita Nyong’o is the face of Lancome at the moment – but I didn’t think it would be ‘this’ bad seeing as this is a brand new product on the market.

The new Lancome Miracle Cushion Foundation in Beige Moka  – £30 via Selfridges – borrows from Korean technology – but at the moment what Western product doesn’t – as cushion based foundations have been around in Korea for ages. When Jane from British Beauty Blogger introduced me to this foundation (like 2 months ago) I initially thought that it would have a BB cream-esque formula and coverage but in reality the Miracle Cushion Foundation is actually a lot thicker than I expected.

My Lancome Miracle Cushion Foundation in Shade 6 has been designed to be very compact and easy to use on the go (aka the train to work). All it takes is a light press of the puff onto the Foundation Cushion with a quick pat onto your face – think small bouncing motions – I find that the Miracle Foundation cushion is very porous, so you don’t actually NEED to use the sponge Lancome supplied – I mean you can if you want but I personally don’t like sponges that much (germ breeding ground) – as so much product comes out when you apply pressure on the compact. You can use a foundation brush to apply this foundation but the coverage would probably be a little thicker than if you used a sponge.

It’s not too warm (aka ORANGE!!) and should suit ANYONE that uses a NW45 in MAC.

Would I buy the Lancome Miracle Foundation Refill – £19 via Boots – once this foundation finishes? To be honest, I don’t know! I like the way this foundation feels on my skin, the effect it has,  its lasting power (4-6  hours) and I think the Miracle Cushion could potentially be a great summer foundation (so I don’t feel it would be right to judge it too harshly when it is not in its element) BUT I do not like how much this foundation slips without a setting powder. My iPhone is covered in foundation right now – which has not happened in a long time – and that’s really not a good look

The Lancome Miracle Cushion Foundation in Beige Moka costs £29.50 and can be purchased from your nearest Lancome Counter or in Boots, Feel Unique, Selfridges and Debenhams
