Teint Miracle foundation and I was kindly sent a full size bottle to try. I've been using it for at least a month now and thought it was time to share my thoughts.
Firstly, I really like the bottle and the smell of this foundation. These aren't deal breakers with a product but just a nice bonus. The glass bottle has a nice pump, I find easy to hold and dispense. I tend to use one to two pumps depending on the amount of coverage that I want and the pump means less mess and wastage. The scent is a fresh watermelon smell. I find it pleasing and not at all over-powering. I suppose if you don't like scented products you may not like this but it's not a really perfumed smell and it's more pleasant than some of the strong emulsion smells that you can get with some cheaper foundations.
On to the product itself. This is a light reflecting formula and I find it to be a light to medium coverage. I find it very easy to apply, as I've mentioned before I always apply foundation with my fingers. I don't get any streaking, it blends quickly and easily and looks very natural. Although it doesn't move around once applied it doesn't really set either. It's a buildable forumla and when Oxford Jasmine did my makeover, she was able to successfully use it as a concealer to cover my blemishes.
I find it even my skins tone without very obviously looking like foundation. The only downsides for me are that my skin can feel a little greasy around my T-zone when wearing this. I think this is a factor of the hydrating formula. On my skin it would benefit from a little powdering or blotting however, as I'm inherently lazy this never happens. I'm lucky enough to get a face on these days so touching up and extras are a rare luxury!
I'm using shade 2, this is a touch pink for my skin though not so much that it is unwearable (for reference, I'm NC20 in a MAC foundation). I will definitely be using this up, I have a feeling I will try something else when I have finished this bottle but I would happily purchase again in the future. If you are interested in trying this foundation, I believe you can still get the 7 day trial sample that I mentioned here. I would highly recommend this, it's always great to try a foundation before you buy and the sample more than covers the 7 days.
