UPDATE - OCT. 11/2011 - I have tried the reformulated version of this foundation as I noted I would in the below review. Unfortunately, I am not able to use it - which is very upsetting in that the original formula was the best foundation I have ever used in my 61 years - and I was not allergic to it, which says a lot. The reformulated version comes in a tube (much like Sisley's Transmat) - the formula contains more oil than the original - which for me would have been a good thing, except that the type of oil used causes my skin to itch, as does the SPF 23 that has been added. I use(d) I10 in the original formula - a colour that should not have worked on my pale, yellow-toned skin, except for my 3.5 ph that resulted in it being the perfect shade for me. The shades in the new formula are slightly different - probably because the product is a bit more sheer - so the I10 is a bit pinker. I tried the 110 and the 010 (which in the new formula resembles the I10 in the old formula) - but the coverage was not the same and neither colour worked for me. I have 2 jars of the old formula in my cupboard and have one on hold at the store. I do not like to keep 3 on hand, but I tend to use a lot and the container is small - and of course I do not have a plan B despite being on a search for the past year knowing that reformulation was in the works. People who are just "dry" as opposed to extremely dry as I am, who are/were happy with the original foundation should definitely try the new one before buying as it might be a touch oily for their skins - and you would need to do a new colour match. (This advice varies depending on the person you speak with - for this reason I buy only from certain people). Anyone who was thinking of trying this foundation based on positive reviews, should delay doing so until they can try it in person. Readers will note that many reviewers posted that people remarked on their nice skins - this of course happened to me as well - but it was the foundation, leaving sort of a cushion-like effect. The new formula does not provide the same look. I seriously regret having to post this. I am sure that there will be many people who will love this foundation but so far I have met 3 who don't compared to the original formula - and people who have my skin issues. I can't try a match in Shisheido because the products are too harsh for my thin skin.
I love this foundation and wear it over the fine lines primer. I have naturally very dry skin and as a result have to use more of the product than most people. However, as others have posted, people think I have "good skin" - it is really the foundation. BUT, note that the Teint Naturel Satine has just been reformulated - today is Sept. 5/11 and I was advised by my SA that she has just received the reformulated version. I knew this was going to happen when Cle de Peau started to change its packaging - and reformulated the Cream foundation (for oily skin types) twice over a 2 year period. The packaging is now tube like I am told. Due to allergies and very acidic, yellow-based, pale skin, a foundation is the hardest thing for me to find. It has to contain oil and be a cream. I am half-way through one jar and have 2 in my closet - would like to stock up a bit more but the bottom line is that even if stored properly and not opened, the moisturizers in the product tend to dry out. Later this month I will be going to the store to try the old product and the new on my hand. Cle has been reformulating many of its products as has every other brand that I can use - and there are not that many.

Well, as usual, I have to be the one to go against the grain. I was soo excited to purchase this due to the great reviews. I paid $80 on ebay,
so was happy to get a bit of a deal. I HATE IT! It slides off my face by mid morning. I use a primer, but it didn't help. I also used the spray on finisher....didn't help. Turns orangy after 3-4 hrs....didn't find coverage to be any better than my other high-end to low-end foundations. Ewww, I'm so p.o.'d I spent that amount of $$$!!!!
UPDATE: Well seeing I paid so much, I have been trying this to suit my needs. I think the problem is it is too sheer for me....so I have been using a heavier foundation and layering this on top and it does give a nice glowy natural look so I am happier with it. I don't know that I would repurchase for $80 or more dollars, but we'll see.

Heaven. Just a sleek little black jar of pure whipped heaven. I never in my life thought I'd spend $118 on foundation. I don't even like foundation, and since my skin is pretty decent, ordinarily I can get away without it. But lately I've been wanting to look and feel more polished, and cover up some acne scars/sun damage on my cheeks and chin. I tried a few mineral foundations and decided that was not for me; the finish was either too powdery or too shimmery, and either way my pores looked huge. I can't stand the messiness of liquid, but I tried L'ancome's teint miracle anyway...too oily, and it oxidized. I have no idea how I came across the reviews for this foundation, but I am so glad I did. Otherwise I simply never would have tried it, even though I'm a die-hard Shiseido loyalist. Ok, yes, this ate up my grocery budget for the month, but it also made my skin look literally FLAWLESS. No joke. Invisible pores, even tone, no spots or scars, just fresh, dewy, bare looking skin. Most impressively, it lasted all day without oxidizing and never got shiny in my t-zone. It only takes a tiny bit to even out my whole face, in fact most mornings I mix it into my Shiseido spf, and buff with a soft brush, and that's enough. A little extra dabbed onto blemishes makes them invisible. In the three weeks since I purchsed it, I have gotten more compliments of my skin (not my makeup!) than in my entire life.

HG foundation for my combination, light-med asian skin (O10). used armani luminous silk foundation in 5 for years, which looks great right after application, but got tired of reapplying on my T zone every lunch hour. this has a wonderful finish, dewy like LSF, but actually LASTS! i still check in the mirror out of habit at lunch and I don't need to reapply or touch up. also have used shu uemura face architect but had the same problem of needing to retouch/reapply.as others have mentioned a little reallly goes a long way, so I expect this to last at least double (if not longer) the time of my LSF so price to me is about the same.

I have dry/dehydrated and very sensitive skin.
This foundations applied like a dream and glides over the skin smoothly and provides a flawless but very natural looking coverage! I love that it doesnt stick to any dry patches and does not settle into pores! Last perfectly the whole day.
The only downside for me is the poor shade selection. I am very light, but with yellow tones and the shade I10 is too pink and a little too dark and the shade 010 is yellow, but way too dark for me. I can only use it in the summer months when I am generally more tan.
If CDP would introduce better shades I would never ever stray from this foundation again!
I definitely recommend and would rebuy!

I bought this just yesterday going on the reviews here & I am not disappointed. My face looks like silk today - totally even & smooth !. This is the lighest foundation with the best coverage I've ever tried. My chin is probably the worst area on my face but with this is looks perfect - no redness, good coverage without looking cakey. I will definitely repurchase when I run out but that wont be for ages. I actually like the pot as im not a fan of pump jars for some reason. I dont tend to take my make up out with me during the day so the jar is always flat at home so for me its ideal as ill be able to get every last drop out unlike some pump jars.

First foundation I will repurchase. It is beautiful in every way and well worth the 118 dollar price tag. You do not have to use very much so this will last a long time even with daily use. I also purchased the famous concealor which I love as well.
I can also say that this foundation has improved the overall health of my skin. I have used it for over 3 months and not had ANY breakouts which is a miracle. I have cystic acne prone skin and foundations always cause flare ups. My makeup looks and feels the same at the end of the day as it did when first applied. love it!

I never expected that I would pay over $100 for foundation, but I can already confirm...when my Cle De Peau Tient Naturel Satine runs out... I'll be buying another one. This is the best foundation I have ever used. It makes my skin look and feel incredibly smooth and the color is perfect. It's like I'm wearing nothing, yet my skin looks flawless. I've used a zillion of foundatios in my life, some of which cost a mint, but never received compliments like I do now. One person said my skin was glowing and told her husband that if her face could look like mine she'd hand over $100 in a split second. I can even sleep in this make-up and my face still looks great in the morning. Worth every penny! I am an NW20 in MAC and am wearing the O10, if that helps anyone.

Wow - $132 US (including tax) is an INSANE amount to spend on foundation, but I think the previous arguments here in this review are right - you could easily spend $132 on four to six foundations that are not right that you end up throwing away. At least that's how I justify this purchase to myself. I love the Guerlain Parure Extreme foundation (very skin like, very long lasting), but the color choices are too dark and too pink for me. I tried the Clarins Everlasting foundation in "Ivory" (but that gave me an allergic reaction - it also felt a bit like astringent...it left my skin feeling tight and dry). This CdP foundation (I am using 010) is so pigmented that it looks darker in the jar than how it goes on. You only use about 1/4 to 1/2 of a q-tip amount, and that amount is full coverage for your face to cover melasma, freckles, red lines around your nose, etc. Because you use so little product, this foundation feels light and looks skin like - not cakey or mask-like at all. The jar is supposed to last at least one year. This product left my sensitive skin hydrated and supple all day. I take my kid to the park, run errands etc. and put in at least a 10 hour day, and my skin looks great at the end of the day - it didn't oxidize or disappear on me.
It's my little secret - the other moms think I just have great skin; they have no idea I'm wearing foundation. My face definitely looks healthier and more even toned with a little of this foundation on than without.

This is a fantastic foundation (O20 for me). Seriously only a teenie TINY amount is needed to cover the entire face. Use very sparingly for best results. It's blends nicely/smooth on the skin, great staying power, doesn't make my face oily/oilier and no irritation. I don't care for the jar and I really don't like the price.

LOVE THIS. It's expensive but if you have wasted money onf foundations you didn't love through the years then it is worth it to try this. It is especially beautiful with the Smoothing Base For Lines SPF 26 under it. I don't see that primer reviewed and I don't have enough reviews here to add it, BUT that stuff rocks. With that base and this foundation my skin looks luminous, just better somehow. I didn't even know this particular primer existed until I went to NM to try another product. They didn't have the other one so I asked about Cle de Peau primers and when she told me about this I begged for a sample. She gave me a very small amount which looks like it will last another week at least after 3 days of use already. Cle de Peau is pricey, but oh so worth it.

a standing ovation for Cle de Peau Satine creme foundation!
I have always known my HG foundation was out there and I have worked like a fire ant on speed trying to find it.... I have used, and will continue to use:
EL - Max Cover --Stay Wear Light and Reg.-- Fantastic products
Shu Uemura - Face Architect liquid and powder together - gorgeous finish
YSL -- Teint Purete Transfer resistant / perfection
Lancome - Teinte Idole / soft natural matte great durability
CD - Forever / sweat & gym proof
CD- Radiance / lovely finish
Kevyn Aucoin -- Shades #3 & 5 for total coverage
MUFE HD and MAtte / good but not great foundations, the first being too sheer for me, and the latter being way too cakey.
BB - Stick Foundation / portable good coverage
Calvin Klein Matte / good for mattifying when I am a bit shiny
MAC -- SF, Sculpting, (I long for Hyperreal but it's disc), Mineral fndn, - MAC is a big MEH for me. But this foundation takes my breath away!
I have probably used a few dozen more from all different HE and DS lines... and those mentioned are only the liquid or cream foundations.. there are another dozen of the powder, mineral and pancake varieties.. and, in retrospect have tested another few dozen foundations.
I have never instantly fallen in love with a foundation.. I don't know if I am getting old and senile, but this gives me a PERFECT finish. I don't even want to use powder over it, but I do (right now I am using YSL) -- it's finish is that lovely. The only thing I don't like is the square container -- I am a klutz and don't want to drop it.
I could have bought a house with all the money spent on my own personal foundations!!
But, now I am hooked and I don't mind shelling out the $ 118 for this little pot of joy.
As long as they continue to make it, I will continue to buy it! My shade is the l10 ... perfect.
note: I had typed in the wrong product -- that being NARS Sheer Matte which should have been Kevyn Aucoin. NARs Sheer Matte is on my no can do ever hit list!

I am so impressed with this product! I have been looking for the perfect foundation and I have found it. It is sold as a cream foundation but it is more of a liquid/cream, and although it does appear to be too dark in the container, it blends perfectly (020 for me). I used my Giorgio Armani blender brush which has become an everyday staple for me.
Yes, it is pricey at $118, but the smallest amount is all that is needed. My concealer is the CP in beige so I finally figured I should try this foundation and now I have the smooth, natural, luminous coverage I was hoping for. And I gave it the ultimate test which I don't recommend: I work 12 hour night shifts, which is basically like wearing your makeup to bed, but I had it on from earlier that day and did not want to take it off. So I went to work and then went on a short hike afterword, and it still looked great, even after I applied sunscreen over it!
So, I am very impressed and it was definitely worth the cost. No more searching: Chanel, Giorgio Armani, Shiseido, doesn't even come close to this! Try it, I hope you love it!

it's amazin!! but i only love new edition. I bought both of old edition and new one. I dun like that matt finish of old edition(to be honest ,quite dry n quite hard to blend) However, the new edition is absolutely amazing. It is the most expensive foundation i hv ever bought(over £80 roughly) but it just deserve it! It can offer natural but high(very high)coverage especially to acne scars. most importantly, i think the texture is very safe, coz it didnt lead to acne at all!(this is quite important to me coz im quite sensitive skin) so i highly recommend this product to the people who face the similar situations just as me.

I have all the CdP foundation except this one. Because of the similarity in packaging (square navy blue jar), I never bothered to find out, this gives a more luminous finish while the teint naturel creme (cream foundation) gives a matte finish.
030 is my summer shade, it looks a lot darker in the jar compared to the matte version, but on the skin, I like this better. I can layer more after the initial thin application to cover the melasma & oh so natural looking. Why can't Shiseido come up with this kind of colour in their foundation?
The price, I have to swallow it, being the best & most natural coverage I can find in all my foundation collections. My rationale, this is so concentrated, I only use a little bit, & it will last a long time, there ... all better !!!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Oily Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
Outstanding foundation, I used the cream version of this and even though that one was recommended more for those with oily skin this satine version to me is much better for my skin. I am using 020 and this covers so well yet feels so light, unlike the other CDP foundation this stayed on my face all day with very little touch up. It is expensive but have found it cheaper on other sites so I will repurchase this fabulous foundation, could very well be HG status for me replacing all the others I have tried and thought were good.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Other Eyes: Blue
Outstanding results, staying power. Brightens my skin. Needs gentle touch when applying. Lasts all day (10hr day!). Blush and bronzer apply like a dream on top of this foundation, and last as long as they possibly could last without blotchiness. Only reservation is it is a little bit light and a little bit dry, but almost not worth mentioning. So far no breakouts after a few days of use. I bought at discount, price could likely be a barrier in the future.

I was matched for O20, and it's perfect for my Asian skin. I decided to shell out more money to have a perfect HG foundation, rather than a cheap imitation. There is enough foundation for two years for me in the jar. I use a foundation brush to apply primer, then use a dime size amount of foundation with the brush. The result is a natural, even skin tone, and a dewy finish. I will not buy another makeup brand again!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Acne-prone Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Hi everyone. I haven't bought this product yet but would like to know if anyone has, can they list the product ingredients up? I need to know whether it'll cause me an allergic reaction or not. Thank so much in advance!
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
I needed a few tries to get good application for Teint Naturel Satine. The whole trick here is to use really sparingly...as others have commented, a little dab will really do ya, otherwise you will see foundation, not your skin. The consistency of the foundation is beautiful, blendable, and stays well throughout the day. I do agree with mers, who commented on the design of the pot with a twist-off lid. Ditto on the expensive mess...for the price, this makeup should practically be hands-free.
