Lancome’s breakthrough product Visionnaire is now available in the form of a skin perfecting foundation – Teint Visionnaire. At the launch event yesterday, I had a chance to experience the foundation. This new foundation has 2 amazing features – firstly, the lid contains a corrector (concealer) so you get a complete coverage solution in 1 packaging. And secondly, the foundation contains [LR 2412], a molecule derived from jasmonic acid, a plant-derived molecule that activates skin’s defences and healing. This is the active ingredient that is used in the Visionnaire skin care range and is effective against fine lines, pores and irregularities.
This makes Teint Visionnaire a treatment foundation – its provides coverage and at the same time, corrects imperfections, dark spots and wrinkles – the results of which can be visibly seen in about 4 weeks time. It also contains SPF 20.
At the event yesterday, the Make up artist used shade #35 on me which was a pretty good match for me. The foundation felt quite light in texture, it sank into my skin quickly and gave about moderate coverage. For areas under the eyes and around the mouth where I need more coverage, the MUA used the corrector. The overall effect was pretty natural – it did look like second skin and my skin looked very clean and fresh. But it did make my T-zone a bit shiny after some time!
Here’s what the brand says about the product ~
1- EXPERTISE: FOUNDATION/CORRECTOR
Teint Visionnaire offers two expert tone-to-tone textures to reconcile optimum correction with a natural finish.
Focus on formulation feats –
The formulation secret behind the Teint Visionnaire corrector lies in the subtle balance of its various components. The corrector formula unites flawless coverage and long-wear hold with an incredibly refined texture:
1. A blend of polar oils and transparent polymers
Traditionally used in lipstick formulas to enhance and reveal their pigments, the polar oils have the unique quality of improving pigment dispersal for ultra-uniform coverage. They are combined with transparent polymers which provide adhesion in line with the desired make-up result.
2. A groundbreaking fillers duo for unrivalled refinement
The secret behind the corrector’s feather-light feel lies in the association of 2 complementary fillers: lamellar fillers for greater uniformity and coverage and incredibly light spherical fillers, ensuring the formula’s lightness and refinement.
This unique corrector with ultimate long-wear hold is designed to layer flawlessly beneath the fluid perfecting foundation.
At the heart of Teint Visionnaire’s perfecting foundation, two formulation innovations offering natural flawless coverage:
1. V-Pigments Complex
A micronized pigment complex so refined it guarantees a uniform, build-up-free make-up result. An innovative technique offering optimum coverage without accentuating flaws.
2. V-Oil Complex
The secret behind the perfecting foundation formula: a meticulously selected blend of oils with complementary actions for improved skin hold and regular pigment dispersal. The make-up film perfectly hugs skin’s surface for supreme comfort: it masks both pores and wrinkles without ever drawing attention to them. Coverage is flawless yet feather-light.
9 tone-to-tone fluids – 9 targeted correctors
Teint Visionnare had to rise to a further challenge: finding the perfect match between the corrector shades (available in 9 shades versus the usual three) and those of the fluid for a tone-to-tone make-up result.
9 duos devised and developed to suit women across the globe, whatever their skin colour: a universal promise at the heart of the Lancôme brand since the “Women of Color” adventure began. Our Laboratories carried out a study on 6,000 complexions across the world representing the different skin tone colours of women from over 21 countries. Result: 9 judiciously crafted and ideally balanced shades, perfectly suited to the specific needs of women of every colour.
2- PERFECTING SKIN, DAY AFTER DAY
A flawless complexion is essential for a perfect skin. That’s why Teint Visionnaire offers an instantly perfect complexion, but also enhances skin’s beauty from 4 weeks.
Unique skincare efficacy
Incorporated within a fluid SPF 20 formula, the prodigious [LR 2412] molecule offers skin all the efficacy* of a “dermo-cosmetic” active ingredient. Acting on 12 age markers, it evenly sinks into the skin. Fine lines, pores and irregularities are visibly corrected. Skin is triggered to recreate brand new skin substance.
The targeted high-coverage corrector from Teint Visionnaire contains a stable form of vitamin C – vitamin CG – known for its activity on brightening dark spot. This corrector is thus more than a mere concealer as it instantly camouflages dark spots, under-eye circles and skin-pigment irregularities. Skin is genuinely transformed in 4 weeks.
