Things I Wonder About: Lancôme Ôscillation Micro-Vibrating Foundation

By Voxy  


Really, Lancôme? Do we really, really need this?

What you can’t see in the still photo to the left is that the applicator vibrates. Yes. You heard me correctly. Because a “micro-vibrating” applicator is better than … well, one that just sits there in your hand, I guess.

Now, if you tell me that “yes, we really do need this, because it actually is five billion times better than any other application method,” then maybe I’ll try it out, especially if you send me one.

According to the product hype:

The first micro-vibrating mineral foundation. See a pixel-precise complexion with 14-hour wear. Never messy. Never so simple. Feel newborn skin: Every day, micro-massagers work with gentle minerals to revitalize skin, making it smoother, softer and visibly healthier, even after makeup removal.

How to use: Simply push the button and let the velvety cushion applicator glide effortlessly across skin for perfect coverage. 7,000 micro-vibrations per minute break down the featherweight mineral powder for seamless blendability.

Safe for all skin types, even sensitive. Talc-free, oil-free, fragrance-free. 0.28 oz.

It’s also SPF 21, and retails for $48. For fuller detail (with animation!), see Lancôme’s website.

I’m a huge fan of the Clarisonic (review coming as part of November’s skincare focus), and of the Sonicare toothbrush, but the whole vibrating mascara thing pretty much didn’t do anything for me, so I’m a bit skeptical.

However, Voxy is never afraid to admit when she is wrong, so … who wants to convince me?
