I finally got my hands on the new Lancome Teint Miracle foundation and I love it! I was skeptical because there has been just so much hype around it, but after having seen some reviews on the net from other bloggers, and how well a previous Lancome foundation (the old Photogenic) matched my skin, I had to give it a try.

For everyday, I’d been using the Christian Dior Diorskin Nude liquid foundation and while I liked the consistency and how light it feels on the skin, it really didn’t do much for me otherwise. The Diorskin Nude is also more of a light coverage, which doesn’t build up that well.

Lancome’s Teint Miracle is a beautiful, solid medium coverage foundation. The Buff 6 (W) shade is a perfect match for my skin! I loved how I didn’t even have to use concealer and how it doesn’t settle into or accentuate pores or fine lines. It’s fantastic for my combination skin and often tired complexion. This is definitely going to be my go-to foundation for a while!

And here are my HG cosmetics and tools:

Cosmetics/Tools

  • Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer in Ivory 6: Extremely pigmented, easy to work with and stays for hours. This is the only thing that covers my hyperpigmentation flawlessly.
  • MAC Blush in Well Dressed: This has a satin finish and is the PERFECT baby pink. The color is not too warm or too cool on my skin and gives me the prettiest glow. I can wear this with anything, any look, anywhere. Nothing compares.
  • Ben Nye Contour No. 1: This pressed powder creates the most natural looking facial contour ever. It doesn’t look at all like makeup, just natural shadows.
  • Lancome Star Bronzer Poudre Soleil: I have strong yellow undertones and can tan very easily (but now I won’t!). I also don’t buy different foundation shades with the changing seasons, so this is my most perfect, natural summer tan in pressed powder form. I use this year round and it gives my face such natural dimension and luminosity that I don’t even consider this to be makeup!
  • Ishizawa Lab ナチュデカ (Nachu Deka) Eyeliner in ネイビーグレー (Navy Grey): It’s called “Navy Grey” but goes on black. It has a sharp, felt tip that makes application quick, easy and precise. This stays put until you take it off, but is also easy to remove.
  • Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Eyeliner: The best and only eyeliner I can use for the water line/lower lash line. It truly stays for hours and doesn’t smudge. No raccoon eyes!
  • Cle de Peau Extra Silky Lipstick: This lipstick hydrates my dry, often flaky lips, and the color lasts for hours. It feels amazing on and doesn’t have any annoying scent or taste. The colors are so natural and just beautiful.
  • Christian Dior ‘Backstage’ Powder Foundation Brush: This is a natural hair, flat top brush that I use to apply my liquid and spray foundation for a fast and easy airbrushed look, without streakiness.
  • MAC 138 Tapered Face Brush: The perfect size, shape and softness for contouring the face.
  • Shu Uemura Kolinsky Brush 5r: Firm enough to apply and soft enough to blend eyeshadow perfectly in my crease every single time. It is so easy to use and there isn’t a single brush (even MAC) that compares to this.
  • Seche Vite Top Coat: C’est vrai. Believe the hype. This stuff works! I hated doing my nails because I’m impatient and always make a mess, but this changed my mind completely.
