I think I have found the foundation equivalent of my soul mate. Say hello to Lancome Teint Visionnaire Foundation.
Although my skin hyperpigmentation has improved greatly, the dark spots are still there and Lancôme Teint Visionnaire was formulated with skin issues like this in mind.
It contains vitamin CG which is recognised for its anti- dark spot effectiveness. Lancôme Teint Visionnaire is a two part foundation; along with the liquid foundation you also get a high coverage concealer (they call it a precision corrector) and for me, this is what sets it apart from the myriad of foundations out there.
It also contains 2% of some of the ingredients in the Visionnaire skincare range which means it is good for the skin and helps with the long term treatment of dark spots, wrinkles and enlarged pores. I wear 11 Muscade and there are four shades darker so most skin tones should be catered for.
After applying primer (do it ladies; it helps your make up stay on longer) mix some of the concealer on the back of your hand and then use your finger or a concealer brush to cover any redness or dark circles/spots. I was amazed at not only the perfect colour match but also the way the dark spots seemed to disappear. Loving it so far.
Next, take your foundation brush and apply the sheer perfecting foundation. I’d say it gives a light to medium coverage but when you’ve got any imperfections covered with the wonderful concealer, you don’t need anything more than that. If however your pigmentation is quite severe, lightly apply a touch more concealer on any dark spots.
All foundations say this but Lancôme Teint Visionnaire really does give a flawless natural looking result. There’s no ‘mask’ effect and once it had settled into my skin, I was very impressed at how creamy, even toned and radiant my skin looked.
I didn’t think anything could separate me from YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat but Lancôme Teint Visionnaire has done it. It is my favourite foundation this far and definitely my go to when I want a flawless but natural looking complexion. And that’s pretty much every day.
