Lancôme Maqui Miracle Launch

By 00:25 , ,

Latest from Lancôme, the first 12-hour lasting, brightening foundation, Maqui MIRACLE! It has been launched and you will be able to get your hands on it real soon. *woohooo*

I think you would generally agree with me that long lasting foundation is almost difficult to find especially when you have combination-oily skin. It can be such a nightmare when half way through the day, your foundation starts to melt under the wonderfully humid Malaysian weather. Lancôme might just have found the answer to your problem and mine. *wink wink*

How Maqui MIRACLE works to give you 12-hour lasting, brightening effects:

Introducing the Maqui MIRACLE range
  • Aura-Bright technology - if this sounds familiar, it is the same technology used for Lancôme's Teint Miracle launced last year. It works to reproduce and boost the pinkish and bluish tones of skin's inner light to reveal a naturally radiant and bright finish. To better understand this concept I refer you to my earlier post here.
  • Resists sweat and humidity - to keep complexion looking fresh and radiant up to 12 hours.
  • Lightweight, oil-free and mineral rich formulation - creates a perfect and pore-less finish.
  • Features Lancôme NearoWhite complex - enhances skin's clarity.
  • SPF 26 PA+++ UV protection - help prevents the appearance of brown spots & protect skin from damaging effects of daily UV exposure.
To find out if the results are as they claim, Lancôme its Facebook fans to give the Maqui Miracle a trial run before it launch. 76 Malaysian women participated in the trial requiring to wear the fluid foundation for 5 consecutive days and to observe the comfort level of wearing itdailiy and its brightening and lasting power. *this includes me of course :)*

The results - of 76 women who participated
  • 79% found it comfortable to wear
  • 76% said that it clears up the face bu covering spots and blemishes
  • 72% said it brightens up the complexion
Long wearing throughout the day:
  • After 4 hours - clean, fresh, radiant, glowing, still natural looking and brightness maintained

  • After 8 hours - glowing fresh look, still fresh without discolouration, natural and still luminous

  • After 12 hours - it stays on without looking oily, still looks great, coverage still there without patchiness
