Lancôme Miracle Cushion Foundation

You might have heard of this recent foundation release by Lancôme - it's the Miracle Cushion Foundation. It comes in this sleek, super portable, and small packaging that makes it perfect to take on the go. If you like having your foundation for touch ups, this is pretty handy. Now, don't get confused this isn't cream or powder, this is a liquid foundation. The packaging is inspired from those Korean BB and CC cream that come in the form of a cushion as well. I remember seeing Michelle Phan use it in one of her videos, and I loved the applicator.

The foundation is very buildable, as in you can put on one layer for a really natural look and then layer it on if you want more coverage. I usually stick to one layer, as it colour corrects any redness I have and gives me an even tone. While I don't think I was colour matched to exactly the right shade (this makes me look a little too tan), it's a lovely finish anyway. Once blended out, the colour still looks pretty good, so I've been using this quite a lot.

I actually love taking this with me when I'm traveling, because there's no faff with foundation brushes and pumps or anything! The foundation on its own cost£29.50, but once it's empty, you can get a refill for £19.50. In my opinion, this is a great price for a high-end foundation, and I'd gladly purchase the refill.
