I’m not really a mineral foundation lover. I’ve tried them before, and it’s always been ehhh. After 8 hours my face looks blotchy, masky and usually they don’t provide enough coverage. However, a few weeks ago, I got the chance to try Lancome’s Oscillation Powerfoundation and my opinion on mineral foundations has greatly changed.
My shade in this is Sable 20. First of all, I love the packaging of this product. The Foundation is encased in a jar, and the applicator is over it. All you have to do is push the button on the applicator (the button makes the brush move 7000 micro-oscillations per minute) and begin applying on your face. The vibrations of the brush feel as if I'm giving myself a facial massage. So wonderful!
I love that unlike other mineral foundations this product will not leave a powdery mess all over my house. This product also has a very high amount of SPF-21. That’s high for any foundation, cream, powder or liquid. When I tried this, I couldn’t believe the amount of coverage it provided. Seriously, I didn’t have to use a concealer or anything for my hyper pigmentation. The Sable 20 shade was an exact match to my skin. Lancome claims this will last for 14 hours. I can attest that this lasted a full day on me without the need to re-apply. Also, this product is oil, talc, and fragrance free.
Me with this on.
