I was so unexpectedly disappointed in this foundation. I guess my expectations were too high.

This felt rubbery on my skin and made my skin itch after a couple of hours wear and kept on itching for the rest of the day. I could feel this on my skin. Not as weightless as Nude Miracle.

It made my face look flat in a very unnatural way.

It did not provide coverage all day and started to wear away after about hour 4 and I have normal skin right now. I cannot imagine reapplying this; it's not portable. (So what do oilier fans do?) Bottle is glass and tall and narrow at the bottom. Pump is nice but what I expect nowadays.

Color oxidized but that was okay since it started out a little off. I went with 250 (w) for my NC25 skintone but not sure that was the best match for me even though that was the closest match out of the colors the SA tried.

I might try the L'Oreal version.

This Lancome Foundation is always my favorite No.1 liquid foundation. I'm on my 4th-5th? bottle and I will continue repurchase. This foundation's predecessor was another successor as well.

Pros:
- Silky, elegant texture, it refined my skin, conceal my pores, redness and imperfection.
- Buildable coverage.
- High-end, beautiful, designer type of product packaging.
- Wide color-range.
Cons:
- Alcohol Denatured "still" present in 3rd ingredient list. (Paula Begoun and USA Lancome.com ingredient list are wrong! Just get one yourself and read the back of the ingredient list).
- Depend on your actual skin condition, for skin with larger pores, this doesn't last as long as it meant to be.
- This does not have enough UVA protection. (Octinoxate)

I like the foundation very much, there are some flaws but the pros out-weight the cons. For people who want the "no-make-up" look, I guess this isn't for you. But if you want good coverage yet still a nature look, this is the best! The cosmetic cop Paula begoun rated this foundation's predecessor best stars product but rather a low rate on the newer version. I would recommend you ignored that. Because you won't be able to rely sun protection on foundation itself. (one or two or even three pump foundation WILL NOT protect you from sun damage!) Alcohol denatured present in higher amount but so far it doesn't upset my acne prone, non-alcohol tolerant skin.

One last reminder: This really doesn't last all that long, Even after careful skincared, primer and setting powder. For serious acne scar or darker undereye circle, you will want to add on concealer. Shade 210 + a whiter setting powder or concealer are so far my favorite match.

This is a very solid foundation, way more pros than cons. Great coverage for redness and blemishes, feels like nothing on, wears well on my normal-dry skin throughout the warm spring days. Fragrance-free and doesn't break me out. It's super easy to work with, I just apply with my fingers and don't have to even think about it accentuating anything bad. There's a minor problem where it does seem to occasionally sink into some of the dot pores on my nose, but that's easily fixed and it looks great everywhere else. The bottle it's in is heavy glass, with a very small pump that gives great control over the amount of product you use. It's narrower at the bottom than the top, which leads to it falling over on a regular basis.

I will be returning it - why? One big issue. I wear the lightest shade and, while it matches at first, it quickly oxidizes and ends up looking too dark. Just a slight darkening, but enough to be noticeable and give me the ever-hated makeup line. Blending or going down the neck doesn't help, I still end up with a face darker than my neck or a neck darker than my chest. Shame, because if not for that one thing, I'd buy this foundation again and again.

This is really just an "OK" sort of product, and because of that, I don't think it's worth the money or the hype. That said, if you can get a sample, try it out, because it might work much better for someone with a different skin type.

PROS:
Finish - This looks SO natural on, and NOTHING looks natural on me. It's a my-skin-but-better sort of look, even with its relatively good coverage. It is a dream to apply because you don't have to spend forever blending it out. I use a dupe for the Beauty Blender to apply (the blending sponge by Quo, for any Canadians reading this). And once you've finished, it's perfectly set, not sticky or anything, so you can go over with concealer if you need it. It is also the LIGHTEST foundation I have ever tried, and I have tried a few. I'm very sensitive to the uncomfortable feeling of having something on my face; I feel like I can't breathe (but it's something I have to live with so I wear foundation anyway). This quite literally feels like you've got nothing on.
Coverage - The coverage for this is nothing more or less than medium. I've got a LOT of acne scars from hormones and experimenting with different foundations (mostly drugstore), and this did a pretty good job covering them up. I do have to touch up with concealer in the end but it's not too bad. It is also VERY buildable, and though it doesn't reach "full" coverage, it doesn't get cakey, and that's always a plus.
Packaging - It's pretty, sturdy, and comes with a pump, so no sanitation issues.

CONS:
Lasting Power - I've never had a foundation "wear off" on me so if you do have an issue with that I can't comment on it, but I do have oily/combo skin, My T-zone gets pretty oily when I put foundation on and this one is no exception. i get oily within 5-6 hours with this on.
Wear - I know I said that this has a good finish, but in the winter, the area around my nose is VERY dry and flaky and gross (but still oily, of course -.-) and this. Clings. On. Even when I exfoliate. When you come up close, you can see yellow flakes all over my nose and that is absolutely disgusting. It's a lot better in the spring and summer though. Also, after a while, this sinks into every puny crevice in your face, even with primer. I have large pores and am used to makeup sinking into them, but at 19 I haven't got noticeable fine lines. However, with this, I see two tiny lines around my mouth after a few hours, which makes me look really tired and... angry?
Tested on Animals - No. 1 reason not to repurchase, for me.

I'm not sure if this breaks me out or not, but all in all, I think this would be OK for people with normal or slightly oily skin types. For reference, I am slightly darker than NC30. I use the shade 320 Bisque W and it's almost a perfect match, just a smidge too light.

this is one of my favorite foundations, i used to work for lancome and i know how great the products are compare to other designer brands. this foundation is amazing, i got it in 320 Bisque (w), its literally water proof, sweat proof, and has super super long wear, it also leaves a matte finish. i tested this product out for 18 hours, like wearing it all day and wearing it over night and going to the club. and it last all day, out of a 18 hour day of wearing it, i only had to touch up about 3 times. i started to get oily within 5 hours of when i just applied it. this is one of the best foundations, i would buy again.

I have oily, sensitive and acne-prone skin. This is my HG. After testing numerous foundations I have finally found the one. Without reapplying it stays put for a good 8 hours.

PROS:
Lightweight.
(It smells wonderful &
feels amazing on your skin!)
Medium coverage.
Dewy & natural finish.
Great packaging with a pump.
Long lasting finish.


CONS:
It doesn't stay on 24hr but i mean what foundation really does.
its pricey.
Medium coverage.

This is great foundation in comparison to many others, it is better than the two foundations that i have been using recently Nars all day luminous foundation and tarte amazonian full coverage foundation. It has better full coverage and gives skin an airbrushed look, the best lasting power, it doesn't start to break down until about 9 hours of wearing it, i have oily skin and this controlled my shine for about 6 hours than i needed to powder which usually it takes only 3 hours for me to need to powder. I also love the color it matches my warm, light with yellow undertones perfectly without being too yellowish like Nars, i wear 250 w bisque and im NC20-25. Great velvet matte finish that's not dry feeling, the cream texture, blends well and feels so soft and non-greasy. I moisturize and apply with my fingers than set with a translucent powder, no need for a primer which is great because primers can be clogging to pores if used everyday. I Highly recommend this one!

I really love this foundation. It has a great color range going all the way into the deepest colors. I have dry skin and it doesnt accentuate dry patches as long as I moisturize and use a beauty blender sponge( I use the RT miracle complexion sponge). It leaves a semi matte finish which is perfect for dry skin. It's definitely medium to full coverage and i suggest building it in sheer layers.

This is definitely not a long wear foundation of you are an oily girl like me, after about 4 hours of application I was a greasy oily mess! It has quite a strong unpleasant scent and also made me brake out! I NEVER brake out! On the plus side it is easy to apply and has a nice medium buildable coverage! So pleased I only tried a sample and didn't waste £29.50 on it!
