Lancome Miracle Cushion Foundation ★★★½
About: unique foundation consisting of a liquid sponge foundation with SPF 23. Available in 6 shades to compliment most skin tones. Packaged in a round plastic compact with sponge foundation.
Review: Wow, what a fantastic new way to use foundation! Miracle Cushion is a beautiful liquid foundation that comes from a foundation-soaked sponge. Hailed as a liquid foundation you can finally take anywhere (yes, you can), this liquid foundation in a compact is truly unique. Available in a range of natural shades that match up beautifully with many skin tones, Miracle Cushion foundation covers and corrects skin, hydrates and brightens, and protects skin from the sun thanks to its sunscreen factor. Miracle Cushion is not dewy, nor is it matte - the formulation is simply natural with a light to medium coverage and luminous finish. Personally I prefer a medium to full coverage so I found myself trying to build up the coverage on my skin but the finish was still slightly too subtle for my liking unless blended in with a stick foundation for that little bit more. Miracle Cushion feels soft and smooth on skin, with a 'barely there' fragrance that does not irritate eyes or skin. I feel that the best way to apply it is with a foundation brush: lightly press the brush into the sponge and then blend the foundation which is on the brush across the face for a lovely natural finish. Miracle Cushion foundation is a clever concept and a beautiful product, however I would really love to see this product become available in two different cover consistencies: light-medium and medium-full.
