For you mineral makeup lovers out there, here’s one from Lancome that will fulfill our futuristic visions – like someone having apply buff in foundation for us! With the success of the Lancome Ôscillation Mascara that vibrates and just works on your lashes, they also have come up with a mineral foundation that would do all the buffing for you.
Check out the Lancome Ôscillation Power Foundation
This foundation outputs 7,000 micro-vibrations per minute—which stimulates the skin and breaks down the featherweight mineral powder for seamless blendability. The micro-massage, and the ultra-fine, featherweight texture of the foundation, creates a “no makeup” look and feel—resulting in a pixel-perfect complexion. The formula contains nourishing aloe and vitamin E, as well as SPF 21 for protection, so skin is left smoother, softer, and visibly healthier—even after makeup removal. Simply push the button and let the velvety cushion applicator glide effortlessly across skin for perfect coverage that lasts up to 14 hours.
For the ingredient list,
Titanium Dioxide 10.03%
Boron Nitride, Kaolin, Isononyl Isononanoate, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Alumina, Tocopherol. May Contain: Bismuth Oxychloride, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides.
As this is not yet available in the Philippines, I am most intrigued on how this works. The sponge applicator would vibrate as it buffs in foundation on your skin, taking care of the evening out our skin tone with its buildable coverage. Checking on its ingredients, they seem okay – no parabens, but a controversial ingredient, bismuth oxychloride which some discerning mineral makeup lovers are so concerned about. Truthfully, there are products with bismuth oxychloride that makes my skin itch, but there are some that don’t. It contributes to a pearly sheen on your face that makes your skin look dewy and glowy, but it has a tendency to make your skin itch when it warms up. But then, it still depends on the preference of the person using it.
With the hefty price tag ( around $50 or so ), I would really think twice about making a purchase of this, but I am definitely tempted to try it. If this was just in front of me, I would probably close my eyes, splurge, and try it! The gadget lover in me just gets excited in this automatic buff-in mechanism!
So, girls on the other side of the globe, anyone tried this? I’d love to hear from you!
