I have very pale skin, usually the lightest pinkish shade at the counter. In fact, I tried to buy a MAC foundation first, but there were no colors suitable for my fair, cool skin tone. I'm glad there weren't, because I wouldn't have found Teint Miracle! I apply this foundation with a regular foundation brush. It blends beautifully...I have never had a foundation that applied so smoothly. It's slightly cooling when you apply it, probably due to the alcohol content that other reviewers have mentioned. The alcohol does not seem harsh or drying at all. As soon as I apply this foundation, my skin looks perfect. It is a medium coverage that looks perfectly natural. It holds up great for a couple of hours, but after that, it tends to let my skin get a bit shiny. This is to be expected, as I have rather oily skin, but other foundations do better to control it. However, oil-control foundations never have such a nice, satin finish. Normally, I wear Bare Minerals foundation, but I will wear this on the weekend when I want to step it up a notch. I am very pleased with this product so far and will probably continue to purchase it.
UPDATE: I had to remove a lippie because this foundation just doesn't hold up on me. I can't wear it all day. Like I said, it's gorgeous when I first apply it, but it looks SO shiny within two hours and proceeds to melt off my face. I'll keep this one for winter when my skin is dull and dry, or for nights out when I don't need to wear it all day. This might work for people with dry skin, but if you're oily, watch out.
Nice foundation, it looks natural and it doesn't become cakey during the day. Medium coverage and pretty moisturizing.
The lightest shade a bit dark for me during the winter, in june it looks pretty perfect.
I don't think I have ever been so satisfied with another foundation.
I've been using it for 5 -6 months and I'll continue doing that.
The best foundation besides the La Prairie-caviar foundation! For the expected price of a high end foundation it delivers a beautiful sheen and glow. I think it has some diffusing particles in it as it looks shiny in the bottle, but it doesn't show on the skin. You just get great skin! I love it because it's so light and it doesn't dry out my dry skin. This is my HG foundation. Most foundations are either too dry or cakey or they leave too much shine, but this one is just right.
After rave reviews and reading on Lancome's website that this is good for sensitive skin, couldn't wait to get my hands on it and it did NOT disappoint! My search for a HG foundation is finally complete. I have normal/dry sensitive skin and use foundation to cover sun spots and redness. I have tried several foundations that irritated my skin, didn't offer enough coverage, transferred onto everything, didn't last, caked, or glittered...This does NONE of the above.
It's a little more expensive than my usual MAC selections, but it also doesn't contain parabens, oil, fragrance, and there's 10 times less powder fillers so I justify the price due to better ingredients. While some have commented on it having alcohol, it is made up of 37% water as well as rose water and vitamin E, which will mitigate any drying effects. (I know I'm starting to sound like a Lancome ad now!) Besides, using a moisturizer and primer creates a layer of defense as well. Also, it seems runny when you pump it onto your fingers, but the texture is perfect once you apply. The coverage is up there with ELDW for me but the finish is better. I apply with my fingers and sometimes get overzealous and it still looks amazing. The packaging is both functional AND nice-looking. Will def repurchase over and over again :)
I have finally found the foundation I've been looking for all these years. Not too heavy, moderate buildable coverage, and a beautiful, natural and healthy-looking finish. It does not cause me to break out nor does my skin feel overly dry or oily after using it. I will pay for the quality of this product. Only issue I had was when I bought my second bottle it was broken... literally cracked. Don't know if this is a common occurrence but check the bottle inside the box before taking it home!
First time using a Lancome foundation but was surprised by the results.It gives a really nice dewy polished finish on your skin and is very natural looking.Tends to last around 6 hours.Got lots of compliments on how good my skin looked as well.Would definitely buy again.Only reason didnt give it top marks was because doesn't quite have the full coverage to make my skin look flawless but maybe that foundation just does not exist!
My favorite liquid foundation. It's lightweight and spreads easily, yet covers beautifully. Just makes you look like you have a great complexion without looking cakey or too obviously made up. It's also long lasting. The lightest color is perfect for my very fair skin.
I had high hopes for this foundation, I thought it would give me the glowy skin that I always sought after in my foundations. Maybe it was because I had such high hopes for it that I feel VERY let down and highly dislike it. This is definitely not for those who have sensitive skin or rosacea, because alcohol is really high in the ingredient list. Maybe for oily skins it would work, but people shouldn't really be putting alcohol on their faces anyway.
Think of it like this, when you go out for a night of drinks, your skin suffers and gets dehydrated and then for a couple days afterwards it looks sallow and dull, and it takes a while for it to look its best again.
Now.. take that alcohol and apply it to your face everyday and think of the damage that it is doing to it. And I used to LOVE alcohol in my formulations, I was an avid user of clinique's toner, the #2 clarifying toner. I loved it once but no more, because I think that specific product gave me rosacea. To be honest I don't know if rosacea is something that one inherits or it's something you can pick up with bad skincare, but I truly believe that my rosacea occurred because of all of the alcohol I used on my face. Anyway, I'm rambling, I recommend that people don't use this foundation. Your skin will suffer in the long run.
If you have skin that is tough, not sensitive, and not prone to redness and is a bit oily, you will love this foundation for sure.
But just know it's wreaking havoc on your skin, and you will see those signs manifest in the future.
The search continues for me, for my perfect foundation.
I bought this and fell in love with the packaging, way it went on my face with such a small drop, and overall end result. What happened though, over time my skin got more dry and red. It became impossible to cover my "red nose"/
The product, and the new Aqua from Chanel contain alot of Alcohol. This is how they get it to smooth out so fast and dry on your face.
Alcohol has NO PLACE for your skin, and is a horrible thing to put into a skin product.
Threw it away.
I've been testing foundations over the past couple of weeks and this is my favorite by far! The color is perfect, and so is the amount of coverage. It costs a little more than I was hoping for, but that's ok. I plan to buy it this weekend.
