This is definitely a "my skin but better" foundation, it gives light coverage and feels lightweight and moisturizing. I only use this one when my skin's in a quite good condition, it makes my skin look well-rested and glowing, but if I have breakouts or redness on my cheeks, I'll turn to foundations with higher coverage or pair it with full coverage concealer. The best way to apply this foundation, in my opinion, is using your finger to pat it into your skin, since it's so sheer it gives a totally natural finish and won't sit in my pores.

This fdn. has no coverage at all, more like a tinted moisturizer that leave the skin with a sheen, to me, this sheen resembles an oily sheen, not glitter, not glow, but a sheen. Not at all to my taste.

Really didn't like this product. Seemed to settle in my lines making me appear older, I actually looked better before applying it - which really isn't good!!! I received a sample but definitely wouldn't buy. For now, I will continue to wear my armani shaping cream.

Can you believe it.... Needless Markup is the only place that sells this in the D.C. area, and they were OUT OF STOCK of my color (Fawn). That floored me. But my impression of the foundation is that it is very thick and gloppy.I have a sample I have been using... its a very dense and oily makeup. In my opinion, the coverage is more full than light, It covers everything. Looks beautiful, but I really don['t want anything this gloppy.and thick. Looks v3ery dewy, which can segue into oily. Color (fawn) very yellow, and I am more of a balance between yellow and pink. A good expensive makeup to put into my rotation.

i love this foundation, i'm tempted to get rid of all my other almost perfect ones (nars tinted moisturizer, estee lauder invisible, nars sheer glow, armani lsf, ysl teint resist, boscia bb). tom ford traceless feels weightless, i agree with the reviewer below, somehow makes my skin look younger--softer, glowier, plush. lasts all day and i need less than one full pump for the entire face. nars tinted moisturizer is very good but this has a better finish and for me is a better color match. i like the consistency of the tom ford better than armani luminous silk (more water, less silicone?). also, the bottle is attractive and well designed.(i use bisque--nc30, armani lsf 5)

After many attempts, I finally succeeded at getting a tester of this product, and am loving it.
As other reviewers have described, this product has a lovely glowing finish, and leaves my dry, sometimes flat looking skin, radiant, dewy and hydrated. I have compared it side by side to a few of my current foundations, and it seems to win in the radiance stakes, hands down. Praline seems to match my MAC C6 / NC44'ish (which is a tad orange), very yellow toned, medium/dark asian skin perfectly, and doesn't change colour throughout the day. I would describe this as having a light to medium coverage while giving me that no-makeup look. I found it very easy to blend in and I have experimented adding layers to increase coverage, and ended up using quite a fair bit (no pump on my tester, so cant quantify how much) to get a full looking coverage, and the product still looked natural with no caking.
If you have dryish skin, with yellow tones, and like the hydrated, dewy look, this foundation could really work for you.
At a ridiculous �60, approximately twice the price of other reputed brands, this is not going to be my day-to-day foundation. I wanted to rate this a 4 - just because of the price, but couldn't bring myself to... The price is silly, and I have a huge dislike of paying for a name, however it seems I may have to reluctantly succumb to the fact that this is the price I have to pay for such a beautiful foundation.

It has taken me a while (used about 25% of bottle) to decide that I do like this foundation. Here's the pros & cons:
- I have mature skin and this foundation makes my skin glow and appears younger. I daresay its my closest attempt to achieving Korean stars' complexion. With continuous use, my skin actually looks better. It could be due to the skincare product in the product. I work in an air-conditioned office, and my dehydrated skin didn't have the usual tight feel in the afternoon.
- Doesn't settle into my lines & pores.
- The colour 'Pale Dune' looks a little light upon application but it 'warms up' immediately and blends in seamlessly with my NC25/20 skintone.
- The packaging is classy, the brassy top is a nice touch. Anyway, its fun to own something Tom Ford (yes cheap thrill).
- It steaks upon application and requires a bit of effort to work it in. I use my MUFE HD brush 25N to apply it, give it a few minutes for it to sink in and then use my fingers to pat it in.
- The coverage is really light and your skin shows through. I noticed my sun spots when I looked into the mirror during lunch time.
- It doesn't seem to dry down and has a 'wet' feel. It just felt weird. (Its okay now, guess my skin adjusted to it.)
- Its v expensive. Goodness, its 40% more expensive than the usual high-end department store ones. My most expensive foundation yet.
Although it wasn't love at first sight, I've come to appreciate it. My skin defintely looks glowing and airbrushed without the obviousness of a foundation. It is especially good for tired days.

Unfortunately, this did not work for me. It looked very pretty when the MA made me up with it but it is not meant for my skin type. My skin was oily in a few hours and the dewiness of it left me uncomfortable. Probably better for normal/dryer skin types.

I got this as a Christmas present and compared to D&G's Perfect Finish foundation which was a Christmas present purchased last year also "sight unseen" I must say these two Italian designer lines are worlds apart. My hubby got the TF in Alabaster Nude and it's not too pale or too yellow. I would have preferred it a tad lighter to be honest. The finish is actually kind of glistening which is nice but the coverage is nothing. I couldn't even tell I was wearing anything. It takes about five pumps to do my whole face and for $78, it should just take a drop or two. The whole thing is going right back. I believe Ford helped with Estee Lauder if my memory serves me correctly and I can see his influence with the packaging which is elegant enough. But the product itself is just not very special. I also got the Sahara Haze shadow and Alabaster Nude powder to be reviewed separately.

For reference I'm NC40/42 and shade #7 Tawny is a good match for me. I have combo oily skin with a t-zone that likes to get really oily. While it doesn't control oil, I don't find Traceless makes it any worse. I blot 1-2x/day which is pretty normal for me. Traceless is light weight but highly buildable so you can get the amount of coverage that suits your needs. The finish is not matte but it's not radiant either... perhaps I'd consider it "satin". This is an extremely expensive foundation currently priced at $78 for 30ml (1oz). I am using up a generous sized sample the Neiman's SA provided when she color matched me in the store. The price causes serious pause regarding whether or not I'd actually (re)purchase this foundation. I say yes I would because it is a very good performing product but to be honest I've found several foundations now that I feel that way about and they don't cost nearly as much. To be fair, if price were no issue, then yes I would definitely (re)purchase so I rated it as such. You can decide if $78/bottle is what you're willing to pay for a foundation.
UPDATE 12/18/2012 - I ended up buying this and have decided it is the best foundation I've used. Yes, many foundations work well for me and I own 6-10 foundations/TM/BB-cream but this is what I reach for most often. The color match is perfect for me, it wears beautifully and has never let me down. Yes, it's expensive but I'd repurchase it because it's cheaper than buying around it and never being as satisfied. I've upped my 4-rating to a full 5 lippies even though the price is definitely a deal breaker for a lot of people.
UPDATE 3/19/2013 - I'm still over the moon, thrilled with this foundation. My skin has been going thru lots of changes and is currently normal/dry... Traceless remains my HG! It was the ONLY foundation I took on a 6 week vacation in varying climates from mild winter temps with dry/recycled air to super hot summer temps with ridiculously oppressive humidity. Traceless liquid foundation didn't let me down even once! A single pump covers my entire face.
