I first saw this product in a magazine spread where they had a few readers mugshots printed on a full page.. their faces were almost life-sized so you could even see their pores and tiny facial hairs! They had a shot without makeup on, and a shot with just teint miracle on. It was amazing how natural the foundation looked and i don't think the images had been retouched or tampered with because i'm a photographer/graphic designer :) Then I tried this out at a mall on the back of my hand and found that the liquid was soft, runny with a super easy to spread consistency and blended in like a dream with no streaks, nor did it settle into the lines. And the price? Yup, it was just as expensive as it felt. I had just purchased a Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua (which i didn't love, though i love Chanel) so i thought i would keep the Lancome in mind for my next purchase.
Fast forward a year later at the airport where i found this for 10 dollars less and i bought it without hesitation. I used this throughout Winter and i LOVED it because it kept my skin hydrated, dewy and glowy. The magical part about this is that although it gives coverage, it feels very very light and it is almost undetectable. I'm almost through with my first bottle... and while there are new foundations from various brands with enticing new formulas popping out every season, i'm going to stick to Teint Miracle for one important reason - this has been the ONE and ONLY foundation that i can wear on my undereyes WITHOUT it settling into my fine lines. I have very terrible dark eye circles and i spent the last 10 years piling on alot of concealer which unfortunately made me look alot older than i am. After i discovered Teint Miracle, i could get away with just this and a light dab of Bobbi Brown Corrector! Hello fresh and hydrated undereyes. On a good day, i can skip the Bobbi Brown completely!
All i need is a half a pump to one pump to cover imperfections and even out my skintone and it feels so light and comfortable to wear! My ex-HG foundaiton was the Giorgio Armani face fabric because that was also super natural and texture-perfecting, but it had a semi-matte finish which i could probably get away with when i was younger, but now i crave for dewiness and hydration. HG liquid foundation ★★★
Gave me a nice coverage while still looking natural. I liked the product but it was very very expensive so for what it is worth I may or may not buy it again. It didn't stand out or "shine" in my book.
Why wouldnt i repurchase this?
I have combo skin, this is a light coverage and doesnt hold my oils. However, its great for winter time when you want to look very natural and dont have the sun to ruin your foundation.
I would repurchase this if it was more affordable.
Ladies, try this Foundation with the Shiseido Perfect Foundation Brush!!! -> PERFECT continued >>
I haven't used liquid foundation in two years. I had been using Bareminerals and was quite pleased, but I wanted to change to something with a bit more coverage and a product that's longer wearing. So I went to Macy's and stopped at the Clinique, Estee Lauder, and Lancome counters. I liked the other foundations, but this one was by far my favorite. The girl colormatched me perfectly, and applied to my entire face. Instantly the redness was gone, which was very high on my list of must-dos. It wasn't too heavy, but not light either. It's got very good medium coverage, which I was also looking for.
After a few days of wear I was getting compliments on my skin, and my boyfriend says it looks like I have a nice glow about me... Which was awesome because he never notices when I change things up lol.
I have to say this is the best high end foundation I've found so far. I went back and bought the full size bottle for around $42 after tax. To me it was a bit more than I'm used to paying, but I'm willing to pay that much if its worth the money... Which this is for me.
I have normal skin, not oily or dry, and this has worked amazing! I highly recommend trying this out if you're looking for medium coverage, non cakey, and a bit of natural sheen.

I think I have found my HG! First let me say I am approaching 40 and my whole life up until now loved the whole "matte" look on my face. Well, I recently noticed my face does not like that matte look! I have been on the hunt like many of you for that "perfect" foundation. I have excellent skin, (get many compliments on it) but do have the starting of lines at bridge of nose (squinting at computer too much!), and under eyes, and crows feet. Any foundation too matte seems to settle into any fine lines and make me look way older! So I started to do ALOT of research and read reviews on here, and kept reading about the "dewey" look. I finally decided maybe this is the route I need to take with my foundation. I got a sample of this at my local Macy's and the girl colormatched me perfectly! (Bisque 1) I came home, washed my face, applied foundation with brush method, and wow, IN LOVE with this foundation. It gives me a perfect glow all over but not shiney. I do get a little shiney around nose and center of chin, so I do a very light dusting of loose translucent powder (L'oreal) just in the areas that shine more. This foundation is so nice, I can't believe I didn't try sooner! I will say, I found one drugstore brand I love as well, and it't the L'oreal Colormatch Lumi foundation. That also gives me nice glow. I feel like they are almost the same, just one is drugstore and other is department store, and both come from same maker? I went to Lancome counter today to purchase full size of the foundation because love so much! I am so glad I stepped outside of the thinking box, and decided to go the dewey route, because that is the kind of look that makes me look younger. Matte was great when I was teens through my 20's, now not so flattering.
I purchased this foundation the second it came out in Ivory 4 N (which just happens to be a shade Sephora doesn't carry, but is the shade I wear in all the Lancome lines). This foundation IS everything it claims - it applies like liquid silk, blends easily and doesn't dry too fast or too thick. It is medium coverage and leaves your skin absolutely radiant, but with absolutely no shimmer. It disguises my large pores and is moisturizing enough to also hide my fine lines around my eyes. It is dewy without being greasy in any way, and lasts for hours and hours - at the 8 hour mark my skin still looked beautiful - if anything the foundation had "set" all day and looked even more natural.
I alternate between the new Stila 3in1 primer and Smashbox photo finish, and this foundation applies beautifully with both, even though they both have two very different finishes. I have been addicted to Diorskin foundation for the past year, but this foundation is my new absolute favorite. I love it so much that I almost don't want to wear it - I get that feeling that I want to "save" it! It leaves my skin so lovely looking that I'm still not used to looking that good every day, I almost think of it as my special occasion foundation!=
I have very dry skin, so I like to wear more dewy foundations, but some 'dewy' foundations tend to look a little greasy and shiny by mid-day. This foundation gives a dewy look without looking greasy. It dries down to a powdery-like finsish, but with a luminosity. It does not make my skin feel dry and is not cakey at all. In fact, i found out the other day by accident when i touched my face that this foundation made it feels luxuriously soft! Like silk! It is a medium coverage on me, not that I really need it (yet). When you hold the bottle in a certain light, you can see the little shimmers in the foundation, and I guess this is what gives that beautiful lit-from-within glow that i get when i wear this. I really love it! Also I have not had this to turn orange on me in any way, and the one i have is a great color match for my skintone (1N). This is defianltey one of my HG foundations!
I was always faithful to Clinique until I discovered Lancome Teint Miracle. Oh my god, it's so glowy and creamy and lightweight and perfect. Not cakey. It never looks orange in natural sunlight, even if you used a few layers! This can last me all day, but it's definitely not waterproof at all, and will start to come off with a slight swipe of a finger. It covers up redness flawlessly, and still lets my freckles show through so it looks natural! I realllllly hope they never stop making this foundation!
