One of my favourite foundations is Lancôme’s Teint Miracle which gives a lovely radiant glow. (Read my review here). If you’ve been reading the blog regularly, you would know that I love Lancôme’s cosmetics range. So when I got to hear about this new foundation which comes with a concealer, I was really excited to try it out. I was invited last week to the launch event of the Teint Visionnaire at the Lancôme boutique at Palladium, High Street Phoenix and here are the pics and the information about the new foundation.
Here’s what Lancôme says about Teint Visionnaire:
New vision of high perfection: Beyond complexion perfection, to skin perfection
Today, women’s demands go beyond instant make-up results alone. Women are also seeking products to be able to visibly improve skin quality.
Ever attentive to their expectations, Lancôme invents the first ever ultra-perfecting foundation that creates an instantly flawless complexion whilst visibly transforming skin within 4 weeks. Teint Visionnaire: a synergy of science and expertise from Lancôme’s make-up experts.
For the first time, two complementary expert steps are blended in a single product, to reconcile perfect coverage and a natural, no-compromise result available in 12 shades of tone-to-tone corrector + perfecting foundation.
Step 1: Targeted high-coverage corrector
The lid compartment contains an easy-to-work corrector enriched with vitamin CG, known for its brightening action. Apply locally to instantly correct dark spots, under-eye circles and any other imperfections. This high-coverage texture need only be applied to areas in need of correction.
Step 2: Complexion perfecting foundation
For a perfect complexion with a natural finish over the entire face, this fluid flawlessly harmonises the complexion whilst remaining extremely light for a fine, weightless make-up result. It evens out skin without accentuating pores, wrinkles or fine lines. Enriched with [LR 2412], the “perfect skin” molecule, it works day after day to smooth wrinkles and refine pores, recreating truly beautiful skin.
Two fundamental products with two complementary textures, for the ideal balance between high coverage and a natural finish, as well as between make-up and skincare.
Incorporated within a fluid SPF 20 formula, the prodigious [LR 2412] molecule offers skinall the efficacy* of a “dermo-cosmetic” active ingredient. Acting on 12 age markers, it evenly sinks into the skin. Fine lines, pores and irregularities are visibly corrected.
Skin is triggered to recreate brand new skin substance.
The targeted high-coverage corrector from Teint Visionnaire contains a stable form of vitamin C – vitamin CG – known for its activity on brightening dark spot. This corrector is thus more than a mere concealer as it instantly camouflages dark spots, under-eye circles and skin-pigment irregularities.
Skin is genuinely transformed in 4 weeks
Day after day, Teint Visionnaire visibly metamorphoses skin, improving its quality. After 4 weeks, on bare skin, imperfections, dark spots and wrinkles are corrected**, revealing skin that is perfectly smooth, even and infused with light. Skin is truly transformed.
The makeup artist did my makeup with the Teint Visionnaire which has quite a lightweight texture. It does give a dewy finish but I personally felt that Teint Miracle gives a better radiance. It lasted well for three hours but then faded and kinda melted in Bombay’s heat and humidity. I guess it would have lasted better had I been in the AC the whole while. This foundation would be better suited for girls with dry skin. If you have combination/oily skin, I would suggest you try it on your face at the store before buying it, What I like about this foundation is that even if you layer it on, ot doesn’t look patchy or cakey. And the best part, of course, is that it comes with a concealer that matches the foundation tone exactly.
What I didn’t like about it though, is its price. This foundation-concealer duo is priced at Rs. 3500! Guess the price is high coz there are two products in one and it also has Visionnaire’s skincare benefits in it.

Before I end this post, take a look at this pic….
I’m sitting in the “Cocoon” a special, peaceful room where you can have an indulgent Lancôme therapy with their skincare expert. It’s aptly named coz in there, you forget that you are in the middle of a busy, bustling mall!
