Crap. Low coverage,orangy,pricey,it takes 3 hours to get off my face...I'm mature combo skin that treats my face like gold.The point is: if the product is high end, I want a high end foundation and have high expectations. Still looking for my holy Graal foundation. Yes, I'm NC 30,I bought Nº 03

I had a short fling with Lancôme Miracle Air de Teint (if you're in Europe - I think this is called Nude Miracle in North America) a couple of years ago, and it was different from any other foundation I've tried.

The texture is very unusual: It's so runny, it looks like pigmented water. It gives a very velvety but not quite matte finish, which I loved, because foundations that suit my dry skin without making me shiny/dewy are few and far between. The shade 005 is perhaps a little too pink for me, but worked well enough as the coverage is very sheer. This foundation actually seems to BLUR imperfections rather than COVER them, which I think is really clever.

So why did it have to come to an end? How come I'm not riding into the sunset with my fancy bottle of Miracle Air de Teint, happy ever after?

Alcohol. And I wasn't the one with the problem. This stuff is so boozy, it could be a Happy Hour special. Alcohol is the third or fourth thing mentioned in the ingredient list (if I remember correctly) and it's the first thing you smell when you open the bottle. Even if the stench disappears after you've applied this, I couldn't stop thinking about the amounts of denatured alcohol sitting on my face. It got itchy, it got ugly and I stopped using it.
At over 50 euros this is one of the most expensive foundations I have ever tried out. I know it's not skin care, but it just bugs me to pay that much for bad ingredients. If it was 12,99 my expectations would be lower.

If you have sensitive skin, I wouldn't recommend this. If you have dry or oily skin, I wouldn't recommend this. If you have normal skin, congratulations! But I still wouldn't recommend this. A product that contains this much denatured alcohol is likely to cause irritation sooner or later.

But if you love it too much to let it go, I understand, I do. I miss having a velvety face too.

i love the complexion of my skin after applying the looks totally flawless i love it and use it daily .even if i have to reapply it 2 times a day..... and the reason why i keep on buying it is because i only wear it on my t zone, so the aplication is not tha hideous.. i dont carry the whole package, i just pour some foundation in one of the little containers that they gave me at sephora and i reapply it with a little brush.

Initially, I loved this foundation. It is exremely lightweight, provides good coverage (light to medium, but you can build it up) and overall gives a fresh and healthy look.
Much to my regret though, apart from smelling very strong of alcohol every time I opened the bottle, it quickly irritated my skin. My face got redder and redder with daily use, so, unfortunately, a few weeks later I had to toss it.

Fragrance was too strong, fumes made my eyes water. Had to return. Was given a full refund.

I have used Lancome for over 30 years, and I have never had such a reaction to fragrance in face products from them. Shopper's Drug Mart had me fill out an incident form for Lancome.

Beware of the fragrance in this product and get a sample and test it around your eyes before buying.

I bought this as a substitute for Armani's Maestro Fusion Foundation and it was just a waste of money. I bought it in shade number 1, which seemed fine in the shop lighting. As soon as I got home, it was very dark and my whole face felt dry and itchy after applying loose powder so would not recommend putting a powder over this at all as it dries matte. Not ideal for dry skin types. The texture of it when first applying seemed sheer and watery. I would spend the extra money on the Armani one if you're wanting something like this. This product just sits in my unused foundations collection.

This is essentially Lancome's version of Armani's Maestro foundation. Similar applicator, similar texture and everything. I really like this. It is a very natural foundation that has a radiant finish that is still matte. If you like Lancome's Teint Miracle foundation but wish it wasn't so dewy, this is a good foundation to try. It is fluid, and it absorbs into the skin right away. This is a good light coverage foundation, you can get up to medium coverage. If you need more coverage you will need either a different foundation with more coverage, or to use concealer on areas that need a bit more coverage. Apparently this is called Nude Miracle in other countries, but this is the name in Canada.

I have used all the various Lancome foundations over the last 15 years. I thought that this might be their best one yet!
It just disappears into your skin and it feels like you are wearing no foundation at all and lasts well all day. My skin is patchy dry and oily, but this foundation covered up everything without being too thick.
I was in total love until after a few days of wearing it, I started getting breakouts :( This has never happened to me before with other Lancome foundations.
I'll be going back to my Teint Idole Ultra 24H. If this foundation had not caused me breakouts, I would have definitely stayed with it. I am so sad :(

I was told this is the same product as the foundation sold as Nude Miracle in other countries. The colour range has entirely different names and numbers though. I have 06 Beige Cannelle, which is a dark tan with a neutral undertone. I am NC45-50 depending on the time of year. I anticipate needing to go to 11 Muscade as my summer shade. I have combo/oily skin.

This foundation is super thin with a consistency like the face/body foundations from MAC and MUFE. But it smooths into the skin with a texture of a very light serum. And dries down to a soft natural feel, it doesn't feel tacky or powdery. It really doesn't feel like I have anything on. It has a natural matte look, like bare skin with a soft focus filter on it. I have quite large pores around my nose and this blurs but doesn't completely hide them.

I love the packaging for this. Glass bottle with pipette. I put 3 - 6 drops directly on my face and use the Tarte balancing act foundation brush to smooth on the foundation like a paint brush. I haven't had any streaking with this method. I don't use regular buffing brushes or sponges because the coverage is light medium and I don't want to blend it away to nothing.

The coverage is medium, higher than the F&B for sure but no amount of layering will get you a full coverage. I only use this on good skin days, but if you have things to cover you will need concealer.

I don't powder this to set because the finish is so gorgeous and natural. I get 6 hrs of wear before I blot. I could probably get away without blotting but I'm used to quite a matte face. The wear time on this gets me though a full day, but I've not worn it for longer than 12 hrs. It tends to fade away rather than breaking up.

Overall I really love this stuff, it's fast and easy to blend and looks very natural. I don't need to powder it and it has good staying powder. This may have replaced my Matte Velvet + as favourite of all time because of the finish and super light feel. Will definitely repurchase and would recommend it to anyone. However, if you have very oily skin this might not hold up for more than a few hrs.
