The salesperson at the Lancome counter recommended me this for 'hydration'. It's hydrating in a sense that it is pretty fluid. However, the alcohol in this can be too much for a dry skin like mine and dried out my skin pretty badly when I forgot to put a primer underneath. It also accentuates my dry skin. I'm on my second bottle already but am looking to change to another product. It doesn't cause me any breakout but just very drying instead of hydrating. It used to work really well on me during my first bottle but not as well anymore.

I got a sample of this and although, I thought i was going to love it and it looked gorgeous on, it's got a high amount of denat alcohol in it as does the long wearing version of this (Funny their web site doesn't list it as an ingredient on the other one, but I called store and had them check and yep). Denat alcohol so high up on the ingredients is going to cause me problems. Too bad they put in this ingredient. Too expensive to risk it.

This is a beautiful foundation.I like to wear this with a thin layer and then apply my covermark loose powder. The down side is that is contains alcohol. this made me hurt sometime I tried to put it on. It does feel cakey when I need to build up my coverage. I definitely won't repurchase this again.

I was recommended this product and it's nice for a day look as it's very light feeling and is not too dramatic. This works best under 5 hours and after that you would need a touch up. I recommend this to anyone who wants a moisturizing light feeling foundation

I received a sample of this in Beige 03 and tried it about 3 times. I was looking for something with more coverage that would make my skin look good - you know, a miracle - lol. But I don't like this foundation for me - I prefer a more natural look and while this colour was alright on me and I usually wear sand beige, it still came through pinky which was a surprise. I have pink undertones but this pink was just strange and didn't match my neckline and looked mask-like and dry and heavy. I'm always battling too much shine so I thought I'd try a more substantial foundation than my usual choices (which are Marcelle DD, PF Super BB, Bourjois 10 Hour Sleep Effect, EA Flawless Finish, Maybelline Dream Matte) however I still want natural and dewy. I've never been attracted to the Lancome line, never have had any of their products that have stuck with me. This one won't either I guess. One good thing is it led me to rediscovered my PF Super BB and it was perfect - happy to lose the heavy look go back to more natural glow again!

I am not quite sure why did Lancome thinks their two newest foundations have anything to do with miracle. They aren't miraculous at all! The first foundation, a copycat of G. Armani's Maestro foundation, from the miracle series is Miracle Air de Teint (review to come) and the second one, an extremely boring foundation, Teint Miracle. Don't get me wrong. Teint Miracle actually isn't bad at all, but it isn't anything good or special either. Luckily, I received few sample bags of it in the shade 03 Beige Diaphane, a shade that matches my semi-present summer tan.

Since you shouldn't judge the book based on the cover, I'll fast-forward to the true beauty of this foundation.

The foundation is thin and runny, hence light coverage. For those into medium-to-full coverage, this foundation won't be your weapon-of-choice. The application is extremely fuss-free and any of the tools will do the work. Even fingers work well. There is no problem with blending the foundation, and the good thing is that the foundation doesn't oxidize, what I noticed that can be a major problem with Dior, Lancome or Guerlain foundations. Upon the initial application, with Hourglass Mineral Veil primer underneath, the pores are visibly reduced. The skin looks radiant and refreshed, which is something hard to achieve. Usually dewy is not for what oily skinned gals will opt, but this foundation does it well. The finish reminds me of Dior Star, just different coverage level.

The foundation survives typical working hours well, but it should be noted that it was tested under sedentary working conditions without any high or noticeable air humidity, or high temperatures (max. 25 degC). I strongly encourage to try the foundation under more extreme conditions, as these do not reflect the true performance of a good foundation. The good thing, though, or the bad, but good in a way of advice, is that the foundation is not designed for combination or oily skin. Even not for normal skinned who have long working hours or are high physically challenged. After 3-4 hours, the shine-free period is destroyed, because the foundation doesn't have any oil-control abilities, and at the same time, 4-5 hours after initial application, the pores become more prominent: the foundation at that hour-mark starts to sink in them. On the positive side, the foundation doesn't break or slide off, and when it starts to fade, which is after 6-8 hours after application, it fades gradually and evenly. Moreover, everything applied on top of it stays put, and there is no need for reapplying the foundation once it starts to fade, since the overall look isn't as bad as it may seemed in the beginning. What I am trying to say is that I had greater expectations from it. I do understand it isn't supposed to be long-wearing, but doesn't everyone want a foundation that remains intact for 10 hours, that is semi-dewy with solid oil-control capability?

To recap everything, the foundation is not worth mentioning. I completely understand those who like it, and do feel that for some it is their HG foundation. The foundation is extremely average, and for those that don't have high standards and need, this will be a good bet. The foundation is fool-proof and mass-marketed. If it was a song, it would be POP. Something Katy Perry would sing: fun and popular but short-living. Instead of this foundation, try Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum.

Wear: standard (8+ hr), coverage: light, oil-control: oily after 3-4 hr, application: extremely easy, finish: dewy, strength: the skin looks initially beautiful, natural and healty, baby-soft, weakness: low coverage manipulation and overall performance

I have combination to oily skin now. Sometimes have acne. I like this foundation very much. It gives a medium coverage which is out of my expectation because its texture is quite light. However, the finish of this foundation is not sheer and dewy. I think it is similar to the Nars Sheer Glow foundation with more watery texture. Surprisingly this foundation is quite long lasting. It is hot and humid in Hong Kong now, but this foundation doesn't make my skin look shiny and oily.
In conclusion, i would say this foundation is a every-day foundation. I will repurchase this foundation without consideration.

Bought this the first time around three years ago when I first switched up to high-end products. This foundation is absolutely gorgeous and completely flawless! Looks so natural on the skin, feels like wearing nothing but has a strong scent. It is however a very light foundation, so I like to swab a bit of powder on top to set it and make it more matte. This foundation lasts all day and works well with bronzers, blushes and highlighter. My HG foundation.

The color range worked great for my Mexican/French light skin. The lasting power was about 6/8 hrs without a primer or setting spray. I noticed no scent, and my skin looked flawless. However, this makes my skin look oily after 4 hours. Personally, I'm a mineral powder foundation girl (glominerals), but I like the made up feeling of liquid foundation for fancy occasions.
