I have sparse, short, straight, thin Asian lashes and love this mascara. It is clumpy and thick but that helps me out. 1 coat of this mascara and I'm able to curl my lashes and actually hold a curl. Unfortunately I will not buy again nor give it 5 stars since the brand is not cruelty free.

Awful cloying cheap smell. Very strong and overpowering. I tried a sample and couldn't wait to scrub it off.

I purchased this fragrance because the description in the Lancôme book at Ulta described the notes as Jasmine and lemon. I have no sophisticated fragrance practice. I just buy what I like. I have been wearing it for a week now, and my favorite bit about the fragrance is that after its worn for a time there is a soft musk scent. I don't know that I really smell jasmine or lemon at first, but it is a nice light fragrance and dries down to a soft scent. I have tried Tresor in the past too, and it is also very nice. d'AZUR 69.00 at my Ulta. I don't mind paying for nice fragrance.

I had such high hopes for this, but unfortunately it just didn't work out in the slightest for my skin. It clung to my dry patches *incredibly* badly and even on my normal skin areas it looked a little dry.
I'd class this as a medium-full coverage and it really does cover imperfections well, I couldn't see any red patches on my cheeks after using it. I found it build up quite well rather than just looking like it was 'sitting' on itself.
I have sensitive but not acne prone skin and had no problems using this. I don't have pore issues so I don't know how it performs in that regard either.
The shade range though, is grand. I found something dead on my skin tone (008 beige opale) which is something that just never happens (pale, neutral/cool), I really wish they'd extend that to my HG Teint Miracle foundation. I've also read about it being quite accommodating on the darker end of the spectrum too, which I have mad respect for.

The formula and range for sure have some good aspects, but the finish is just so chalky and drying in my experience I can't even recommend as a 'not for me but others might like it' sort of thing.

Liquid -Lancome -Teint Miracle Radiant Foundation

This is a really lovely dewy foundation. It works well for my combo skin- I found it very kind to my dry/textured patches, something that is my main 'rule out' for foundations. Just about everything I try looks too textured on the brow area, but this actually makes it look slightly better than without any foundation at all. For oily areas it performed surprisingly well too. I use quite a bit of powder to set this initially (A personal preference, I just don't like feeling *that* dewy) but it still looks nice and smooth under it. I had to re-powder the sides of my nose every 5 hour or so which is more than my previous matte foundation, although it is more that you can see a little more shine than the actual makeup 'sliding off', which is usually what happens in my case.

The coverage is a buildable medium. I like applying it with washed hands first for a lighter coverage where I don't need much then applying more with a beauty blender to my dark circles and redness on my nose/cheeks. I found it went on streaky with a dense oval brush, nicely with a buffing brush and brilliantly with hands or a beauty blender.

My only point of contention with Teint Miracle is the shades. Ideally what I'd use is something pale and neutral-cool. The 005 (lightest available) is just too dark for my skin, and a little too yellow. The 007 (lightest rose) is far too pink and even a little darker than the 005. The formula oxidises slightly too (nothing crazy though) so it is a whole shade too dark for me by the end of the day. I'm just a little lighter (not even half a shade) than Mac's NC10, so be prepared to buy a white mixer like I did if you are around that or even lighter! The 005 is a little warm too, so if you are *very* cool toned it might not work for you either. It's just such a shame because lancome DO have a really nice cooler toned light shade in the Teint Idole range which was too drying a formula for me (008 beige opale). I'm very much not a dark skinned lass, so I can't say if this is just a fluke in the range that happens to be relevant to me or if the range focuses too much towards the middle of the skin spectrum generally.

Despite the colour issues, I'm more than happy to work with the product to suit it to me because the formula is just so perfect for combo skin (or, well, my type of combo skin. Very oily folks might have more issues with it). I have been through maybe 35 sample of different foundations since I found out my old one was being discontinued and this is really just such a fabulous formula.

I will start off with saying that I really like this foundation and it just looks amazing. Your-skin-but-better kind of amazing. I have never experienced anything like this, seriously. However, I don't really feel like it's that long lasting. Maybe I'm doing something wrong (maybe my setting spray is trash or I'm not preping my skin well or I just don't hydrate enough) but after about 6 hours it just doesn't look that great. I'm talking creasing, flaking, breaking on my T-zone... ugh. It's not that bad but it's disappointing. It is better when I really hydrate my skin a lot before wearing it. Anyway I'm determined to make this work because it looks so pretty at the beginning so I guess I'm going to try different setting sprays and primers and see what I can do.

The best foundation I've used. Blends well, great color match, stays dewy and doesn't dry out my skin, and has made visible firmness improvements to my skin.

Let me start by saying I never write reviews but this mascara was so terrible I had to.

This product is an absolute mess. It flakes like crazy, smears all along the top of my eyelids and is beyond clumpy. Normally I'm a huge fan of wet mascaras but this one is just TOO wet - it gets all over my nicely blended eye shadow and on top of my lid. The clumps are also outrageous.

Bottom line, there are so many mascaras out there that are 100% better and incredibly CHEAPER than this one. Please, save your money!!!

NC25 - Shade BISQUE 250 W was perfect!
Overall was a really great product overall in all departments:
-Long lasting
-Medium coverage
-Satin/ Very skin like finish!!!
-Makes skin appear smooth
-Easy to apply, super silky and smooth
-Great for normal-combo skin (AVOID IF YOURE OILY... the only parts that faded on my was some parts of my nose where im only a bit oily)

CONS:
not great for oily skin
Packaging doesn't twist all the way down
Not super buildable past medium
$54?!

That being said - unfortunately, it wasn't a memorable foundation. I have a lot of similar BB Creams that can do the same thing (My Hera Long stay) at a fraction of the price - so, unfortunately, i will be returning this product!

Got this gem as a free gift from Lancome. Let me tell you this stuff is amazing! I have very dry skin and it leaves me flake free! I find it best when it is not washed off and left overnight to work it's magic

My first experience with this fragrance was on an elevator. I had no idea what perfume it was then, but I had to get off that elevator and take the stairs! The woman who had doused herself in this fragrance got on and sugar bombed the place, I couldn't breathe. I generally don't mind sugary/gourmand scents, but this one I can't stand. I finally discovered the name of this scent when I had lunch with my brother and his GF. Of course she was wearing this and a lot of it. Couldn't even smell the food on the table, just candy floss and burnt sugar. This is a vile brew, and as luck would have it I work with 3 women who wear it. I can't escape it, but I long for the day when it gets discontinued!

HIGH ALLERGEN/ASTHMA WARNING

This perfume actually gave me chemical pneumonia. It is horrid. It fills the room and does not disperse for hours. I can walk into a room and immediately know if someone has it on. Instant allergic reaction complete with puffy face, clogged sinuses, irritated throat, and fluid in lungs. I hope they stop making it.

I have begin to like this foundation very much.I have much of them,but I tend to use this often.Full coverage,doesn't cause pimples althought I have acne prone skin.Strong scent but not that couldn't wear it.Pretty natural finish but still full coverage,so it doesn't look like a mask on the face.

This product really does what it says on the tin! I apply it first thing in the morning then set it with powder and UDs All Nighter Spray.. it does not budge! I have dry skin and this is the only foundation that does not enhance my flaky bits nor does it irritate my skin. It feels like a second skin and is not heavy to wear. It offers buildable coverage and I finally found a shade that is perfect for my pale skin - 011 beige cristallen.
