Lancome Maqui Blanc Miracle Liquid Foundation

in Foundation, Lancome

When ParisB of My Women Stuff extended an invitation to attend a mini-blogger gathering organised by Lancome, I immediately jumped at the chance to say yes. It is always a pleasure to get together with like-minded people who share a common interest. ParisB (whom I've met before) and her lovely sister were there, along with Xin of Pretty Beautiful, Connie of SkinDeco and Domncroxd of Belle Demoiselle.
We met last Saturday at Lancome Beauty Institute in Bangsar Village II. I will post more about it another day because I have not gotten around to editing the photos yet. Lancome recently released a new liquid foundation called Maqui Blanc Miracle, which was a brightening version to the original Teint Miracle. We each got to come home with a full sized bottle and I thought it was nice gesture as I wasn't expecting anything but a good time.
The Maqui Blanc Miracle liquid foundation is made in Japan and has been created specifically for Asian skin. It is oil-free and is touted to last through sweat, shine and humidity. It really sounded like my kind of foundation because my t-zone gets quite oily and I usually prefer something with decent oil control.
It is packaged in a square glass bottle with a pump at the top. The pump works wonderfully and does not get stuck. I can control the amount to use without any issues. This is quite important to me because I have had a couple of problems with pumps on other foundation bottles.
It is meant to be a long-wearing foundation with a Natural Brightening Creator. I am a little uncertain what it means though. I was matched to shade O-03, which is a little surprising because I tend to just pick the lightest shade of any lineup and they pretty much work out. But I went with the recommendation anyway.

I personally think BO-01 might have suited you better. I don't think they carry anything in O range thats' below 03 though. Glad you managed to get it to work one way or another :)

ParisB: It takes a bit more effort to make it work though. I think I tested BO-01 but it was weird pastel yellow on me. The O3 is not too bad but it's slightly more yellow than my natural skin tone.

Hi Rae, using colourful backgrounds is fun :-)

I'm actually glad that it's more yellow-based! I was worried that O may be too neutral on me. But I'm yet to try it :-/

Hey Connie, I hope you get your foundation soon. It should suit your warm skin tone better :-)
