I have been using Estee Lauder's Lucidity foundation for over 8yrs and it's my HG foundation, I love everything about it, from the dewy finish to the texture, to the perfect matching color for my very fair cool skin, I always have a hard time with color matching because most lightest shades in whatever brands are too dark, orange etc....anyway I purchased this because I hate matte foundations I love a luminous dewy finish and this seemed to fit the description. I visited the Lancome counter and picked this up I originally thought I was Ivoire 2C but the SA said it would make me look too pasty and Buff 4C would be a better choice, shockingly I was surprised that I needed something a bit darker since I always pick up the lightest shades that a company carries. The Buff4 was just a tad too dark but will be perfect for the summer when Im tan, so I also picked up Buff2(w) to wear now and maybe mix the two to get a custom color that way I can get best of both worlds combining the cool and warm. The foundation literally stunned me, it applied like a dream,I always use my fingers when I apply my foundation and this did not require a sponge or brush, gave me decent coverage, and made my skin glow without any funky glitter. It's just as good as my Lucidity and it may just become my new HG foundation, it's a little bit lighter than Lucidity, I feel like Im wearing nothing, the way it applies really shocked me, no effort needed, blends like a charm. I am absolutely in love with this new foudation, the coverage is buildable and it really gives a beautiful finish, it did not set in my pores or change color throughout the day. This is probably better for drier skins, but with a good primer this may work on oilier skins as well. Im extremely pleased with this foundation as much as my all thime favorite Lucidity, I even mixed the two and the result was amazing, I achieved a glowing satin like finish. This is a great foundation for women who like a luminous dewy finish, I also own Lancome's Photogenic Lumessence foundation which is good as well but more pricey I believe it was $43, but I think I may like Miracle just a bit better. I must say Miracle beat Dior's Nude foundation which I purchased a week prior to this, and Im returning not because it's bad, I just found better...........Miracle.
I also recommend trying EL's Lucidity the coverage is great and color selection excellent and it gives such a nice luminous finish without any disco ball effect and also EL's Lucidity contains SPF8, Miracle contains SPF15. Currently Lucidity, Miracle and Photogenic Lumessence are my 3 top favorite foundations all excellent in their own way and all are the glowy/dewy finish that I love. If you are not a matte fan in my opinion these 3 foundations are probably the best out there, now it's just a matter of preference. Sometimes I mix them all to achieve a custom color depending on how I want my makeup to appear.
Bottom line Teint Miracle lives up to my expectations and I will always have the foundation in my makeup stash. (hopefully it will not be discontinued like many good things out there)

The best natural looking foundation I have ever tried, which actually provides light/medium coverage!
-Glides on easily with fingers to a perfect finish, no need for a sponge or brush
-Magically light on the skin
-Covers up my redness in a way now other natural foundation can
-Ideal for dry skin- I have this healthy glow after i apply it, don't apply powder it ruins the effect! Although I do sometimes :) old habits die hard
-Although it may seem expensive at around £27 pounds, a little really does goes along way.
-The lightest shade 010, is not actually very light and looks little orange on me if i don't have a slight tan.
-If you have oily skin I'm not sure how the healthy glow finish would suit you, might make you look extra greasy

I never really write reviews about things but this foundation is just exceptional! About 2 years ago I had to make the move from tinted moisturizer to foundation to cover up redness. I've tried so many, trying to find that no-makeup, fresh, tinted moisturizer look, while still giving good coverage. Every other one I've tried (all high-end dept store brands, light-medium coverage), either dries out my skin or make it look dry, cakes up so you can see it, or doesn't last and my red areas start showing by the end of the day. I ran out of my last foundation about a week ago so decided to yet again try a new one and got a sample of Teint Miracle Buff 4. I tried it that night (and every day since) and am amazed!!! It looks like I have nothing on at all but makes my skin look radiant and dewy (just like tinted moisturizer) but covers everything and leaves me even-toned! And has been kind to my extremely sensitive skin so far. I'm still in awe! I finally feel back to my old self and my younger, more natural-looking skin. Completely amazing! The only con I could find, which doesnt matter to me because the pros completely outweight it, is that I've had to use a blotter paper to blot a little oil, which I havent needed in very long...but I'll take oil and moisturizing over drying any day!

I had really high hopes for this foundation. I got Buff 5 and I am NC25 in MAC. The coverage was medium and gave me a really pretty light sheen. What I hated about this foundation was that it slids off 30mins after I wear it. Espicially around my nose which is oily. I think I would like this if I had normal skin but it just didn't work out for me

This Is a good foundation and I really like It. I also like the fact It has SPF 15! It Is long lasting and matches my skin well. I absolutely died though, when I purchased this product, I got a free gift bag of samples and some full sized stuff to! Thank You Lancome!!

I bought Buff 7(w). I am somewhere between a MAC NC25-30. I do not like MAC, however, because it is more of a peachy tint to its warm toned foundations. I have a light-medium yellow olive undertone. I tan brown and don't really burn. This has a peachy undertone that if used lightly looks like glowy skin. But if I use too much, you can tell it is not the right undertone for me beause it looks definitely too peachy and looks garish against my yellow-olive toned skin. So for a sheer foundation to add glow and even out skin tone, that doesnt require flaw coverage, this is good. I will say someone complemented me on my skin the first day I wore it. I think it is a good foundation. I am going to see if there is a better match than Buff 7. Unfortunately, the bisque line is pretty orange toned on me, so I may check out what the next level down Buff looks like.

I have tried almost all the foundations out there and from all kinds of high brands out there (Mac, Clinique, YSL, Bare Minerals and the list goes on) I suffer from very oily skin and I get break outs if I don't use the right products and usually all the foundations that I have used and tried have all made my pores to clog and I use to end up with bumps or break out in the end. I read reviews about this foundation and I went and tried it on and I got samples and I have been using it for 3 weeks now and I have to say I am in love with it and I think I have found my holy grail foundation... It does not clog my pores and it does not break me out and I have suffered from acne in the past too and this foundation is just great for my skin, infact after using this foundation I have realised improvement in my skin...This foundation actually improved my skin. I love the way it stays on and it does not come off and I don't look super oily and it feels very natural and it doesn't even feel like I'm wearing anything. It does NOT change colour either and it stays on all day long from morning till evening (late night) and looks exactly the same way it does when I first put it on in the morning.....I use my Kabuki foundation brush which I use to use for my Bare Mineral foundation. I think the Kabuki brush is great to use when applying this foundation because it gives a even finish and it is so much easier to apply too. I will stick to this foundation as it is perfect for my skin and me.......... I just love it because it gives me a silky, dewy and fresh and smooth, even toned, flawless skin and adds life to my dull blemished skin........It covers very well and you call always add on to the parts you need more coverage.......It does not feel cakey or become cakey..........It does not reveal any of my smile lines either.......I sweat a lot as I have oily skin and the foundation does not drip down or anything and I just look like I have perfect beautiful skin with this on..........I received a lot of compliments after using this foundation.........I don't use moisturiser or primer underneath, I just wash my face in the morning and apply the foundation and that's it.......I obviously remove it at night and wash and moisturise at night before going to bed but I don't need to moisturise during the day with this foundation....It keeps my skin hydrated and healthy looking and best thing is, it really is a miracle foundation for the skin, it improved my bad skin :D I am sooo glad this foundation was even created :D I wish I could meet the person that came out with it and just give them a big hug because I never thought that I would ever find the right foundation for myself and something that would be perfect for my oily/acne/blemish skin .......... Now I have no spots/pimples or acne left on my skin m/a :D I love how my skin became more smoother too both with and without the foundation on :D

Generally a fan of matte skin, I took a chance and tried this "glowy" foundation. I love the finish, because it's not so much super dewy and glowy as just natural healthy looking skin. I have extremely oily skin, so I was cautious about trying it because of its light reflecting claims. However, I am in love with this foundation: it does not break me out (which is a miracle in itself), looks very natural, matches perfectly (NC30 = buff 7W), and while it does not control my oil very well on its own, does not make me look like an oil slick either. I just use an oil control primer underneath and a hint of powder on top, and it keeps my oil at bay for about six to seven hours (a really long time for me!). It dries pretty fast on application, so you have to buff it in really fast before it sets and cakes up somewhere. The pump on the bottle is amazing though, it's very precise and it allows me to pump out as much as I need or as little as I need. It gives medium to full coverage, and it really helps to cover up my redness and acne. So yes I am in love with this foundation while I didn't expect to, and if I ever need to (seeing as I only need to use a little bit each time because of the awesome coverage), I will repurchase!

I love the packaging, and the pump dispenses exactly the amount of product I need.
I'm a shade Bisque 8N (If anyone could tell me what MAC shade this is I will love you forever - the women at the counter are useless) with combination skin and a slightly oil t-zone. The foundation comes on sort of like a tinted moisturizer with a little extra coverage. Coverage is light to medium, I wouldn't try building it up to full because then it would look unnatural. It is oil-free and gives off a slight dewy finish, but it just makes your complexion look even nicer.
I do think it's a little expensive, but even half a pump of product goes a long way, so this should definitely last you a while. I will repurchase for sure.

I got a sample size of this foundation and i used it for 5 days. you literally need a tiny amount to cover the whole face. I loved how it easily it glided on my skin like a smoothing cream, evening it out. the tone they gave me seemed a little bit too yellowish for me. I am still thinking about purchasing the full size. it did not control the oil well and it caked up a little on my forehead and chin so i had to blot it. however, it's perfect for my cheeks. it's very easy and fast to apply with fingers. using a brush it can look too heavy. it looks like skin and very natural and polished if using a small amount amount of product.

I had alot of problems with finding the right colour in this foundation, even the palest colour (beige porcelain) was too orange.
Anyways, despite the colour i did try to make this work for a while to try it.
Its made of 40% water apparently so it was amazing feeling on my dry skin, the finish was lovely and dewy which i love.
It was SO easy to blend and the coverage was lovely, i'd say medium coverage.
It has spf 15 i think, it didnt say on the box but it DID say on the website. The bottle comes in a lovely glass design and a pump, everyone loves a pump, no waste!
Other than the colour problem.. i guess i would have loved this foundation i am so dissappointed because it looked beautiful on the face, and the texture was so nice!

I switched from Sisely's foundation to this. I picked out the shade 2C based off of just reviews (I'm cool toned and fair) and bought it online. It matches PERFECTLY! I have never found a cool tone foundation that covers redness!! :) I usually get told by SA's that I 'need' a yellow based foundation to cover any redness (um I guess they're into the faux tan/ bronzed look?) with 'meh' results... I've applied this with a brush and with the blend-a-sponge, with great coverage. Also, I've used it around my blue-ish under eye circles and the same blue veins on the outside of my eyes and they're covered beautifully XD I really <3 this so far :)

I do really think that this foundation works pretty well on me! Most of my friend did not even realise that i was wearing liquid foundation and they actually complimented on my complexion! LOL The result is truly sheer, light and glowing. What else u expect from a bottle of foundation? Isn't it? Anyhow, i conceded that the concealing perfomance is just so-so. So sometimes i do still apply concealer if needed. I read some reviews from other claiming that this foundation is cakey..mm.. i would say, perhaps it's bcz of ur compact foundation? You know why, according to the SA who introduced this brilliant foundation to me actually taught me not to apply powder-type foundation (e.g 2-way cake) if unnnecessary since i'm having dry skin. Trust me, work this way out! It's so true. Upon product testing, i found it unnatural right after its application! But, pls be patient, as time passes, the ingredient will be oxidised. At the end, u'll find that Lancome promised as it is! Even after 10hours application, my skin still look great. I swear. In addition, RM130 for 30ml seems pricey to me at the begining. Anyway, it is money-worthed i would say, because it lasts at least 3months even for daily application. Speaking from my experience, I'm using it since end of Oct2010, there are still remaining until today! I've ever let 2 of my friends tried out my foundation, they bought it at the end. We are now satisfied customer of Lancome Teint Miracle.

I'm currently a 6W in this foundation and I think the colour match is absolutely perfect. It looks just like my skin but better. The coverage is medium and the texture is very light. However, my skin is dry in the winter time and even though I moisturize and prime my skin well, it still gets flaky on my skin. It's not hydrating enough for me in the winter but I would love to try this formula out again in the summer since it's oil free.

I went to the local counter to get a sample of this. A very generous sample! It lasted about two weeks. I apply it with a round foundation brush and find it really does give a great effect. Very buildable coverage and doesn't oxidise. Hurray!
I lasts pretty well, except round the nose (where my annoying drippy nose needs regular blowing!) but this is easily touched up with a powder compact. Doesn't break me out and neither does it go oily throughout the day.
A great find and a very natural colour.
Bought a full sized bottle well before the sample ran out.

this foundation is amazing!! lightweight, good coverage and looks so natural and glowy... i dun think i have ever looked this good with other foundations and i've tried quite alot of them. HOwever, this makes my skin bumpy. after using it for two weeks i realized i get more and more white heads on my face. But i would still try to use it on special ocassion when pictures will be taken.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Just for reference, I have normal skin with an oily T-zone, and don't really have any acne scars. For me, this foundation worked great! I would say it gives a light coverage that can be built up to medium coverage. The reason I like this foundation is because it goes on and looks like my skin, but better. It isn't too matte or too dewy, it's a good medium between the too. However, it is a little expensive, hence only 4 stars.

I LOVE this product! I have tried more foundations than
you can imagine..but this one has me hooked.
It's smooth on your skin and gives a radiant glow. It covers the red around my nose, and all those other imperfections. It's worth your money, trust me. I'm definitely buying this one again! :)

I've been through a lot of foundations, and upon wearing this for only a few weeks I felt inclined to do a review. This has been my favorite foundation thus far. For such a light water-based texture, the coverage is definitely impressive. I'd say moderate/medium and buildable. I would not say at all that is is like a tinted moisturizer, this is very much a foundation. The "glow from within" claims are definitely true - I notice my skin looks a lot brighter throughout the day, it's lovely. I myself thought the light-reflecting qualities would make me look greasy, but that is not the case at all. It's a beautiful finish, not matte and not at all shiny, just a beautiful second skin that feels like nothing. My skin definitely feels hydrated with this on. It holds up throughout the day which I was very pleased with.
Another thing that is notable is the pump dispenser - I feel like I'm not putting any product to waste. I usually use one pump for a daytime coverage, and 1 1/2 - 2 pumps for more of a gorgeous porcelain coverage for night. Also - the claims that this foundation will improve your skin due to the rose extract within the ingredients is definitely true, surprisingly. I have noticed a significant decrease in redness, my skin is much more even without a change in my skin regime, so I know it's this foundation. What can I say, HG material and I think my long search is over. Gorgeous stuff, i'd definitely at least pick up a sample. You'll be sold.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Normal, Medium, Warm Hair: Brunette, Straight, Fine Eyes: Green
I wouldn't go so far as calling this my HG foundation, but it does come pretty close!
My skin is normal, though I'm suffering from some dryness around my nose at the moment due to cold weather in Europe. This foundation is lightweight and that is why I love it so much. I have some pretty decent skin, with some discoloration around the nose (especially at the moment) and a blemish here and there and this foundation is perfect for evening out my skin tone while keeping me looking natural. It certainly has a 'bare skin' effect, with a subtle glow that usually (and oddly enough) comes up about an hour after application.
Application method: my (clean) fingers! One pump is more than enough to cover face and jawline. I pump once on the back of my hand and dot the foundation on my face (I work section per section). Spread in an upward, circular motion, then pat the face gently to blend. Works like a charm! (I find that patting works best for this foundation to really set it)
A few remarks:
1. This foundation claims to be moisturising. I don't think it really is. It certainly does nothing for my nose area at the moment. In fact, it accentuates the dryness by flaking. This can be solved though with a good moisturiser prior to foundation.
2. Use a primer!! This foundation is NOT long wearing all by itself. I use a Laura Mercier Primer or the Lancome La Base Pro primer and both work really well with this foundation and help it last up to 8 hours.
