Lancôme Miracle Air de Teint

Foundation-phobes, this could be for you. Alternatively it could be for any woman who wants a foundation that is genuinely, really and truly 'light as air'. Plenty promise that - but Miracle Air de Teint delivers: a super-lightweight fluid which simply transforms to a powder on the skin, while 'Miracle Particles' - 25 times lighter than regular powder particles - also create an imperfection-blurring effect.

You'd never use a brush with this: a couple of drops blended with the fingers is all it takes for transparent, but complexion-evening, coverage. In their own surveys, 100% of the women trying this Lancôme innovation said it was so incredibly light to wear, they couldn't feel it and forgot it was there. Same here. And with 12 shades, it really is impossible to go wrong.
