So here we go – the first of the big beauty guns to make an entry with cushions! The Lancome Cushion Foundation is called Miracle Cushion and it’s certainly got me realising how cushions destined for this market are going to differ from the Asian versions.
If you’ve read my previous posts on cushion foundations, then the ‘contraption’ element of this will be no surprise. The packaging has to be completely leak-proof so there’s a double lid – three I guess if you count the actual compact lid.
Once again, there are no surprises here – but what IS different is that Lancome are taking the colour selection all the way through to 06, equivalent to Teint Miracle 11, 12 and 13.
It was one of my fears for this trend that women of colour would be forgotten so I am nothing short of relieved to see the shade selection.
The shade I have here is 02; a pink toned, light beige. Formula wise, Lancome Cushion Foundation is a joy. It’s light, smooth in the application, and hydrating. It almost feels more skin care than foundation, but gives a slight blur on the finish. Actually, Lancome are positioning Miracle Cushion as a make up to literally refresh the skin; the cooling sensation is no accident and is achieved by ensuring that volatile oils and some water evaporates on contact and actually reduce the temperature of the skin.

The Lancome Cushion Foundation goes on counters next month (February) at £29.50, however, future refills are £19.50. I can’t wait to see what you think of the new cushions – I love them so far – I want to see even more!
