i absolutely love this foundation! it just looks so natural and stays on my skin longer than any of my other foundations! i also tried using it in hot and humid climates on my trips abroad and it stayed on without getting too shiny or looking unpleasant! gives a good finish- though not as dewy or radiant as i was expecting…but i can live with that! will definitely buy again- good colour match, good texture and very easy to apply!
Excellent formula, sheer and buildable coverage for a natural look. The product is gentle on my sensitive skin. I have never experienced breakouts or redness using this foundation. The formula leaves a very natural look and feel - never thick, sticky, oily, greasy, or dry. My face never looks like I'm wearing foundation. This formula gives excellent coverage and evens out my skin tone without settling into fine lines or caking.
The beautiful bottle lasts a long time. I especially like the pump dispenser. It pumps out a small amount, no product waste. The pump is also great as it protects the product from contamination.
I use Lancome Dual Finish powder in a dark shade to contour (so much better than contouring with a bronzer powder).
I use Lancome Ageless Minerale to set.
I first got a sample of this from Sephora and REALLY loved it. I've thought products looked great before but I've never had a foundation literally make me say aloud that my skin looks flawless. This one is amazingly thin and weightless yet has full coverage. I don't need full coverage, really, but I have red cheeks that I like to cover up really well so I normally have to reapply every foundation there and layer it. This one does a great job of covering it and I can apply it more sheerly everywhere else, where I don't need the coverage. I won't even call this 'buildable', which is usually code for 'if you do enough work, the product will suffice'. It's just that the formula makes it easy to distribute less of the liquid to some areas while blending perfectly when not spread thinly. It evens skin tone and does have that 'lit from within' appeal that Lancome claims. It has a dewy, hydrated finish (I recommend this for normal, combination, dry skin but if you have oily skin, go for the teint idole) but isn't so shiny as illuminators or other products that claim to be illuminating or radiant. It truly gives a glow because the shine is matte, if that makes sense, rather than glossy. It doesn't have any glitter or microglitter, either, which a lot of similar-claiming products do. It simply makes the skin look absolutely flawless and gives it a glow rather than ever looking the slightest bit flat, cakey, shiny, greasy, etc. It lasts all day, with minimal fading in the coverage and glow-factor.
The shade range is fantastic for fair-skinned people; I'm normally the lightest shade by any brand but am the third one in for this product.
The packaging is simply beautiful and elegant; Lancome is one of those timeless and sophisticated brands. That being said, the packaging is a sleek, angular and slightly tapered bottle with a pump that allows for dispensing of the desired amount of product.
I rate the price a 4. I paid $39. Anything above $45 for me would be ranked a 5.
I will definitely buy this product again!
For over a year, I had only been wearing BB creams because I felt that many foundations felt too mask-like and looked cakey. I eventually came around and decided it was time to try foundation again, even though I was nervous that it would look cakey. This was the first one I tried, after hearing great things about it, and it proved all of my fears wrong. It makes my skin look flawless while still looking natural, and has a dewy finish without making my face look like an oil slick. It has great oil control, and the best part is that it's water based (40% water), so it doesn't clog my pores - in fact, I accidentally fell asleep last night while wearing this, and I was pleased to see that it hadn't broken me out when I woke up in the morning. Expensive, yes, but worth it.
so i bought this foundation yesterday after reading so many good reviews on internet about it,but im sorry to say this is the worst foundation i had ever tried...i can even compare it with dirt cheap drugstore foundation thats how bad it is...first of all ,this foundation has NO COVERAGE,it didnt covered absolutely nothing on my face,the only thing it did it was to make my skin colour more uniformed,but that didnt helped either because the colour i chose the number 3 (i forgot the name of the colour),it had very orange undertones,and after 3 hours of wearing this piece of crap on my face my skin looked orangey,shiny(not in a healthy way),neither glowy,just extremly gross,like i put dirty paint on my face...after wearing this only 3 hours,it cause me lot of breakouts,in such a short time wich is unbelievable..i dont understand why some people actually love this piece of crap..a drugstore cheap foundation is much much better than this...fortunately i only owned this product 4 hours,then i ran back at the shop to return it and the staff gave my money back THANK GOD

i would recomand this product only for those women with perfect skin,no imperfections,and orange undertones if they want to uniform their skin colour
This product is SKIN DAMAGING!! 1st of all it has alcohol as a main ingrident! but I got a sample of this at sephora and I love it! it covers my acne marks and imperfection plus it add radiance to my skin, but it kills my skin
Alcohol in the ingridients and
My favourite foundation! I own several different ones including Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua,Dior Forever,Estee Lauder Double wear light,Givenchy Photo Perfection,Guerlain Parure Aqua,La Prairie skin Caviar.. and the list goes on.
This goes on like a dream, the texture is beautiful, easy to apply, blends in beautifully and creates a perfect canvas. It does add this as-lit-from within effect as promised and looks great in photographs!
I tried MUFE's HD as well and still find the Lancome one to be of higher quality.
Packaging feels and looks nice, pump is handy and glass bottle allows you to see how much there is left.
Will definitely keep buying, it is not that expensive either (compared to Chanel or La prairie) and lasts for a long time!
i tried a nice sample given to me by the SA at Macy's and I'm quite impressed! I wanted something with light to medium coverage, and this does the job. Geat color match,and it doesn't settle into my fine lines.
It gives nice and natural coverage.
Hated it. This was the first time I forked over the cash for an expensive foundation and I regret it. I thought did enough research and planning but apparently I was wrong... First off, it makes my slightly dry skin look like its thirsty, regardless of how much I moisturize or exfoliate. Secondly, it does a magnificant job of emphasizing ALL of my pores, no exaggeration. Finally it doesnt stay, especially on the nose area.
I was so excited to get this but let me down. I'll continue my quest for the perfect foundation
Amazing but expensive! I have sensitive skin and this doesn't break me out or irritate my skin. It gives a nice fresh glow and medium coverage while looking natural. I finally found my HG foundation!
