I'm over 40 and don't expect miracles. I just want a foundation that evens out my tone and doesn't make me look older, or break me out. This foundation is the closest I've come so far. I wear Buff 04 and I'm NW20 in MAC; perfect match.
This foundation lasts a long time, doesn't make me oily (I'm dry anyway) and doesn't settle into lines. It does the rare thing of making me look nice without looking made up.
It's expensive and money is dear. As long as I can, I will budge for this foundation. It makes me look better.

I am also constantly looking for my HG foundation, and I think this foudation is fabulous. I try just about every new foudation that looks like it may suit me.
I like a foundation that has a perfect colour match, lasts really well on my combination skin, is a joy to blend, light to medium coverage, and gives a natural dewy finish.
My previous favourites have been Armani's Lasting Silk, Guerlain's Parure and Diorskin Nude, but unfortunately none have an excellent colour match for my neutral-but slightly pink under-toned skin.
I have found a pretty good colour match in this new Lancome foudation-perhaps just a little pale for me in summer.
I am currently using Estee Lauder Day Wear Plus sheer tint formula moisturiser, this gives a very slightly more tanned base for my foundation.
As I have a very oily T zone, I then tried what several other reviewers have said and and dotted a tiny amount of my EL Double Wear on my face, followed by a small pump of Teint Miracle. I blended both together on my actual face with my fingers, and it gave a fabulous result.
It all blended really easily on top of the Day Wear Plus and gave a flawless finish.
I leave it to dry well, while I do my eyes, then set with a light dusting of my La Mer transluscent loose powder, followed by Nars Deep throat blush and a little bronzing powder.
This lasts up to 12hrs+, just with a little blotting once or twice on my T zone.
So far this is my top foundation!
I also tried YSL Teint Radiance but found it was hard work to blend and get a great finish, I really had to constantly "push it" into my skin to get any kind of a smooth finish.
I just don't have the time in the morning to fiddle around with foundations (nor with makeup brushes, cleaning etc..), so this Lancome foundation is just perfect for me.

For me this is just lovely so far...Like many women I am CONSTATNTLY on the prowl for my HG foundation...For years I have been claiming Teint Innocence (liquid and compact) by Chanel as my HG, but there is some issues with it...I live in Florida, so I need a foundation that can hold up in the heat and humidity, while still looking and feeling natural...I have tested nearly every foundation that claims to be lightweight, second skin, or sheer. Many of them look good for a short period of time then end up disappearing off my face within a few hours, taking away the fresh look.This looks good through my work day and gives a nice dewy-ish glow. I like that this is not flat or matte at all....I would not call this sheer, more light to medium, but it manages to stay natural on me....I am an NC20-25 and was matched to Buff 6w...I thought the MA had made a mistake, as I have NEVER been past a level 4 in most foundations, but the shade is just perfect and melts right into my skin and most importantly does not leave the dreaded make up line... :) I can not stand the look of heavy, thick, or mask like foundation. I like a natural, my skin but better look, and I feel this allows me to achieve that...I love the pump, the bottle looks very classy, and is considerably less than my Chanel. I highly recommend this and will update with any new findings, but so far I am loving this...

i purchased this online, having no idea how lancome shades run. i went to lancome's website and checked out the shades, and was choosing it based on the color and the description of the shad. i was so fortunate that i actually chose the EXACT shade that matches my skin tone perfectly. It disappears right onto my skin tone. i was so impressed! I have golden undertone, medium, normal to dry with few imperfections, and the Bisque 7N matches nicely. i was actually surprised that i am not in the W (like on BE foundation), and instead N. so i guess that's just how lancome does their shades. Apart from that, I love the texture and it's a nice change after using BE for almost 3 years now. the lightness of it, just like BE,.. also the coverage is very lovely, and not sheer that my imperfections show thru. it looks like my skin is flawless, and radiant where it needs to be (like around my cheeks, and forehead and chin where my skin is naturally matte because it's dry). i love that, because just like BE. the price is a little steep that is why i use it on special occasions. not my everyday make up. i love that it stays on ALL day, of course with primer, but i use primer 24/7. also my skin is not sticky and feels very soft..

So here's my story. I went to Sephora, in search for a new liquid foundation. I heard about the new Teint Miracle and so i decided to have a look at the Lancome counter. (not forgetting that Lancome makes one of the best foundations around)
The SA quickly introduced me the new Teint Miracle Foundation, saying it was lightweight and goes on sheer/light with buildable coverage. she then swatched it on my hand and i was amazed at how lightweight the texture was. I could imagine wearing it and feeling like ive not put on any foundation at all. So there and then i decided to try it,even though i knew the price was steep and it would be a BIG WASTE if the foundation didnt work out!!
Im a MAC NC25 and the SA matched me to the 3rd shade, O-03. I was sooo excited and couldnt wait to try it on the next day to a party at night. The result?
Well, lets just say it turned out OK and didnt really quite meet my expectations....... all the hype about this product was kinda over the top.
Reason being: The shade O-03 turned out a little too white for me, and due to the limited number of shades, the next darker shade was TOO DARK for me. As such, there was a slight white cast in pictures and it was quite obvious that my face was whiter than my neck.
Also, I have combination skin. this product is not really for those with oily/combi skin. its better for dry skin. The foundation made my face visibly oily after 2-3 hours, despite setting it with my Chanel loose powder. I looked into the mirror while touching up and i could see the foundation seperating/melting on my nose and forehead.
Also, the foundation was so sheer and lightweight that when i applied it on my face, it quickly dried within seconds that it was quite difficult to blend. sometimes the mica appears to seperate from the foundation in the bottle so i had to remember to shake the bottle each time i used it so that the mica would mix with the foundation before applying.
However, there were also GOOD points of this foundation. It didnt leave any streaks on my face despite drying up quickly when i applied it. Coverage was sheer but it managed to cover up my imperfections and left an even and flawless finish despite not applying any primer (i was in a rush), only moisturizer and concealer.
Overall, this would be my HG/Perfect foundation if only it had my matching shade and did not slide around my face. Would not be repurchasing though. i prefer my Chanel Vitalumiere Foundation :)
Age: 36-43 Skin: Very Dry, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
Having very dry skin with the odd open pore and fine line, many foundations make my skin look much older and show up every pore, line, disasterous and far better without them.
This foundation applied with my fingers only over a moisturiser leaves my skin looking smooth, glowing and even and not one day older. I've actually made the classic beauty sin of using this also to add colour to my face, being chalk white I'm using colour 045 which adds a golden gleam to my skin and completely conceals my pallor as long as I bring it down my throat and looks convincing.
It lasts very well all day and evening and just gets a more dewy glow as the hours go by. I'm mainly using this at the moment to protect my skin from winter cold, sun and winds and though it is weightless on the skin it does give one the impression of a comforting, protective veil.
Highly recommended for dry skin, this does all it says it will, and perhaps I'm not now sporting some saintly halo of light emitting from my face as the blurb promises but as my skin does not look any older with this on, maybe that is it, it isn't cutting down on the refraction of light my skin normally has as other foundations do, and I mean expensive foundations by the leading designer brands.
You can also overlay this foundation, apply more over any darker patches of skin or spots to conceal perfectly.
I look prettier with this on so certainly worth a try for anyone with dry skin.

Great for drier skin, but this made me uncontrollably oily. Lasting power is impressive, non-comedogenic,coverage is medium or better, the palest shade actually matches my pale yellow skin,the pump bottle is perfect- it just makes me so oily I can't use it. I have almost 30-year-old sensitive skin that I blot once a day at most. Even blotting once an hour didn't work for this, nor did powder.And its cold outside! I had the same issue with their excellent Ageless Minerale powder. Its just too much for me, sadly. Glad this was a sample.UPDATE: I found excellent oil-control products (Etival) and tried this again. Much better! I'm upgrading this, since the pale shade, pump, look and lasting power is impressive. So natural-looking and long-wearing. I use Dior Forever setting powder or Cover Fx matte powder on top and it really helps. Yes, I still get a bit oily, but the other factors can't be beat.UPDATE:Really love this now- it NEVER breaks me out and has been impressively dependable in extreme summer. Blotting powder keeps the oilies away- even with sweat running down my face, it doesn't budge. Really grew on me!

I think this might be my HG foundation? I know that I'll inevitably keep searching for something better but I can say this might be my favorite foundation I've ever used so far.
I initially bought Estee Lauder Double Wear a couple weeks ago because I frequently work outside in all kinds of weather and even inside my work environment can be really warm and humid and my foundation usually melts off before the day is over. I also have oily/combo skin and allergies and blow my nose a LOT and was looking for something that wouldn't rub off. Anyway, the Double Wear was a flop for me - too matte, too chalky, made my skin look dull and dry and just blah.
So I returned the DW to Boscov's and it seemed like the only associate available was the Lancome counter, so I gave her a shot.
I explained that I was looking for good coverage for my acne and mild rosacea but I didn't want anything thick and heavy like my previous daily foundation Colorstay. I wanted my skin to just look flawless without being like a mask.
She applied Teint Miracle and I was most impressed with how well the color matched my skin - Buff 04. Most foundations are too orange or too pink on me, I'm fair with an olivey undertone, but this blends seamlessly with my jaw line. She actually only applied it to my T-Zone just to prove that it would blend so well. You couldn't see the demarcation at all.
It looks very flawless yet natural. It feels very light and is a nice thin liquid that blends easily. Because it is thin, it's easy to use too much. There's definitely a learning curve and I'm still trying to get the hang of it.
It looks slightly whitish and shimmery and too liquidy at first but once it sets in a few minutes, the result is beautiful.
I'm hesitant to say this is my HG because it *does* look a little greasy on my nose because I'm oily already. But this is an easy fix with a translucent powder (I use a bit of loose Clinique matte powder that has no color, it sets this liquid nicely).
I've always been concerned with a foundation wearing well and I have to say, this holds up surprisingly well for such a thin runny liquid. It *almost* lasted a full day of nose-blowing. I went to a concert that was crowded, muggy, and sweaty and it still looked good when I got home. And one night I was lazy and went to bed wearing it (I know, I know, big mistake) and it didn't rub off on my pillow. And honestly, it still looked pretty darn good in the morning.
The pump is fantastic. Why don't all foundations use a clear pump? And it washes off great with just Cetaphil gentle cleanser and water! This is my first foundation that I felt really washes completely off without scrubbing or a 2nd lathering. I think in the long term this will help with my acne.
I would recommend application with a brush and then smoothing out a bit with fingertips or light blending with a sponge once it sets a little. This stuff is runny and thin and soaks right up with a sponge. I ended up wasting some of it trying to sponge it on.
The sales associate sent me home with samples of Teint Idole Fresh Wear, which I've already tried and reviewed and surprisingly like, and Teint Idole Ultra, which I will probably switch to in the summer for longer wear in the humidity. I would be curious to see how Teint Miracle might wear if mixed with a bit of the TI Ultra...hmmm. I may need to seek out a few more samples, because that could possibly be the perfect combo.
Overall, this is my current front runner. Expensive, but worth it to have something that matches my skin and blends so well.
Edited: Ok, I've been using this about a month and I still love it but I took one lippie off because it's not wearing well on my oily nose or chin. It's a beautiful foundation during the drier winter, but I won't be able to use this during more humid weather and will probably give Teint Idole Ultra a shot then.
Edited again to add: I've been using this for several months now and I gotta say, my skin is in much better shape than when I was using Colorstay or Bare Minerals. I still have the occasional blemish, but nothing like when I used those. So I think I will be sticking with Teint Miracle but using Teint Ultra on my oily spots!

I walked into Dillard's fully expecting I'd get EL Double Wear; it's a bit flat on my skin but it does last well in the high temps and humidity. My car's AC belt decided to go MIA so I am regularly experiencing melting foundation issues.
I think my skin is normal/combination on any given day,but perhaps not oily enough for DW's extreme matte-ness.Dillard's last day of a GWP for Lancome was yesterday,so I decided to give Teint Miracle a shot.First of all,the shades run really light! The shade I-and the SA-thought I'd be was far too light (second to lightest is what I usually run.)I ended up being a Buff 6 (W).I think I am also a little darker in the face since moving south; I use sunscreen religiously but have a lot of freckling.I normally run about NC20,*might* be closer to 25 now-not sure.The warm shades have a strong yellow undertone which is great for me,but some people may want to opt for the neutral (N) for that reason.Coverage is light but probably buildable; I don't need a lot of coverage in general-just enough to tone down redness and perk up a bit.If you're REALLY oily it probably won't work for you; the finish is rather dewy/glowy. It feels nice and light on the skin and stays on pretty well.
For the reviewer who mentioned the scent: it reminds me a bit of MAC MV2,but I'm also wearing MV2 so not sure if I'm just smelling THAT or if the foundation is reminiscent of it as well.
I give this one a thumbs up for wear,look,color match,packaging and kindness to sensitive skin,but $37 seems like a steep price (says the woman who used to buy Vitalumiere!).
Age: 44-55 Skin: Sensitive, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond, Fine Eyes: Blue
This foundation feels great on the skin and doesn't bother my eyes at all. The problem is it dries out the top layer of my skin and makes it flaky. One SA said it was intended for all skins, but another said it was not for dry skin. I had to return it, but wish it didn't dry me, because it felt weightless, just didn't have enough moisture.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Normal, Fair Hair: Black Eyes: Hazel
After using up seven samples I finally bought the full size bottle today. I gotta say, I really like this. I thought it'd be too sheer but it actually layers quite nicely yet always looks natural. I'm super pale and the lightest shade matches better than pretty much anything I've tried before. The staying power is decent and I find that it works well with the Ageless Minerale primer and the Eclat Miracle illuminator.
Age: 56 & Over Skin: Oily, Fair-Medium, Neutral Hair: Brown, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Brown
UPDATE: Ok, no need to insist on something that is so obviously a fail (for me). This made me shine in no seconds flat (even with powder on), covers diddly-squat, settled in my pores, and made my skin look sort of thickish. Definitely not for me.
Yesterday, I got a very generous sample of this foundation from the sweet, nice SP at the Lancome counter. I've already commented on the ordeal of choosing fdt colors in the criminal light of department stores, so I'll just say leave that to personal research.
I tried this on today on clean dry skin (e.i. no primers, no moisturizers) because I wanted to see how it works on its own. Coverage-wise, it barely has any. I consider this to be more a skin-evener than a fdt. If you have serious issues you want to cover, this will NOT help. Finish-wise, it does have a nice natural, non-masky look ... when just applied. Oily-skinned gals might want to dust some powder on this, unless they are among those people who like to pretend that "greasy-looking" is the same as "glowy." It isn't. However, to each his own.
I dusted some Guerlain Meteors powder (Beige) on this and it looks ok. But I know that my oily skin is going to shine through this soon enough. Also, someone mentioned that this will not work in humid weather. Absolutely right. I live in a very dry place, and yet that is not enough to prevent my skin from getting shiny in due time. I can only imagine how I would look in humid weather with this on. I'm also going to try this with some powder fdt on, to see if it gives me more coverage. I'll keep you posted.

it`s great foundation
i found it hard to match my skin tone with any foundation often i had that rose color and i`m yellowish :)
and this foundation gives me my natural skin tone and covers it great.
i don`t have problematic skin but i want that one foundation that COVERS it ALL!!Miracle is like that.
:) i`m happy that i got it (number 1 )i recommend it to all of you.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair, Warm Hair: Blond, Fine Eyes: Green
I was hesitant at first when I thought this one - due to its claims of "bare skin foundation" I feared it would have been like Diorskin Nude or Guerlain Lingerie de Peau: both beautiful foundations but for the ones that have already perfect skin (=almost no coverage); this is not my case....
I need more coverage therefore I have to head towards more covering foundations. Teint Miracle is light in a bottle. it's just beautiful... and it has coverage! However... it has a glowy, luminous finish. I encourage you to sport it without any setting powder if you can - as the luminosity sparkles at most. In my case I cannot skip setting powder as I have a greasy T-zone. In any case, the result is stunning.
Teint Miracle is lightweight and it's not a matte, long wear foundation. So you need a superperforming base, this will nto be it. It's very good for normal to dry skin or in winter... it will not stay in humid weather.
I have this one in shade 02 - when choosing the shade at the counter i thought 01 was my take (I always get the 01 or 010 shade in Lancome's) however I found it too light.
So I got the second shade and this is a perfect match for my NC15-20 skintione.
It's a freat foundation...I like it! and I welcome the suggestion of the revier below... I have to try and mix it to my EL Double Wear....that is great with staying power but is too dull.
I am sure this will become a favourite combo.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Brown Eyes: Other
I have this in 010 and to tell you the truth - I didn't like it much on its own on my skin. The coverage is too light, staying power isn't good (I did some crying while wearing it and most of it came off) but I loooooove the smell of it! If Lancome made a perfume with this smell I wouldn't even think twice and purchase it! But I mix it with EL Double Wear and its perfect! It makes Double Wear more vibrant, alive on my skin! Smooths out all the lines and at the same time has staying power of DW! So its a perfect combination for me! And once again - love, love love the smell!
Age: 44-55 Skin: Other Hair: Other Eyes: Other
I really wanted to like this since I loved Lancome's MaquiLibre foundation years ago and I don't think they have come up with another foundation as good as that one. This one had medium to full coverage and I really prefer very sheer coverage. I think when you get to a higher coverage level, it looks more mask-like and not natural at all. Plus, the mica in this sits on top of your skin and looks very unnatural especially in sunlight. I will be returning it.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Sensitive, Medium, Neutral Hair: Brunette, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
I'm unsure what I like better: this foundation or its transparent pump that makes product waste a thing of the past. It frustrates me to pump and pump, not knowing where the product is, and then get a big splurt, often more than I need and with no way to put it back. I'm so delighted with this pump I photographed it; please click through for the picture.
This is one fabulous patent-pending foundation. I've used it daily for two weeks in weather ranging from hot and monsoon-like to chilly and autumnal. I absolutely can not feel it on my skin and it holds up all day as claimed. It's oil-free but hydrating, thanks to rose extract. It also includes SPF 15 sunscreen. The active ingredient is Octinoxate 3%. The foundation does not bother my sensitive skin in any way.
Finding a shade: It comes in 20 shades from light to dark, in Warm, Cool and Neutral. Heed the notation on the box: "Color may appear lighter at first but blends beautifully into your natural skin tone." Swatch it or get a sample and check it in natural light a few minutes after applying it. I needed two samples and three stores to find adequate lighting (Macy's made me look downright orange) and the right shade. Now that I have, the foundation is undetectable. I'm NW 25, but a true Neutral that leans cool, and am using Bisque 7 (N) in this. The next lighter Neutral Bisque seemed fine in the store but I saw the dreaded jawbone line of demarcation in natural light. It might match in the dead of winter, but not now.
Coverage: This is a light-reflecting foundation -- shake well before using -- and Lancome states, "Moderate coverage. Natural finish." That is my experience. I get slightly more coverage by applying with my fingers (I don't even need to even it out with a brush or sponge after) but it can be sheered out with a brush application. If you need full coverage, this foundation is not for you, but if you're looking for "your skin but better" -- much better -- without the feel of foundation on your skin then this is worth considering. By the way, I get the most "glowing" finish by skipping primers!
At USD $37 it's not cheap but it's far less than Chanel Vitalumiere, which now feels like goo on my skin by comparison. And while it's called Teint Miracle, we all know there is no miracle in a bottle or jar but this does make my skin look like Mother Nature gave me more help than she did.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Brown, Straight, Fine Eyes: Blue
As I love (and only use) 'glowy' foundations with good coverage this foundation was perfect for me. Im 26, don't have have spots of 'bad skin' just a few red blemishes around my nose but like a very even look for my face and cannot live with out foundation. My HG has always been LM silk creme but this one may be the new HG!! The coverage is medium and very natural looking, you can layer on more to get a full coverage. The finish is 'glowy' and luminious, its not greasy or shiny. It has a very beautiful air brushed look. I do pat on some loose powder on my t zone as i dont want to be too overly glowy on my oily t zone but other than my t zone i dont powder anywhere else. What I really like about this foundation is that is stays on for the whole day, whereas i would have to re apply the LM silk creme half way through the day. Also it doesnt rub off as much as the LM...after romantic cuddles and kisses with my bf watching a movie my face still looked great, with LM yes its perfect when u first apply but after a few kisses with my bf you can definitely see where it had worn off and looked quite bad! not with this foundation! Only thing is i got the wrong shade. I am quite tanned (a mixture of loreal fake tan and few sunbeds) i guess im around an nc32-ish and i got shade '45'- this is very orange. In the evenings it looks ok and i will definitely use it for going out but in the day- looks orange!!! I am going tomorrow to get a lighter shade :)

This foundation is great! I haven't come across a better one. The coverage is medium to full. It gives you a radiant, healthy and natural finish and evens out the skintone. For my fair skin, color 010 'Beige Porcelain' is a perfect match.
I find that this foundation gives a better coverage than the Teint Idole Ultra, but looks more natural. And Teint Miracle doesn't oxidize on me, unlike the Teint Idole Ultra.
It's quite long lasting, it stays put for like 7-9 hours.
The packaging is very nice and hygienic: a glass pump bottle with a charming cap on it.
I would definitely repurchase.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Combination Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
I haven't purchased any lancome foundations for many years finding them too yellow for my very pale skin. I was telling this to theSA and she suggested trying this which I did and I was impressed. I purchased and now reach for it every day. It gives me a good coverage with a dewy glow with a couple of pumps! I also bought the highlighter to go underneath which gives a really healthy look to the skin which others have commented on which always helps to convince me that I have made the right decision.
