Lancome Teint Miracle Lit-From-Within Makeup Natural Skin Perfection

After searching for my HG foundation for years, I feel like I have finally found it with this product. I bought my first bottle as soon as it was released, and I am currently finishing up my third one with a fourth coming in the mail.

Normally I steer clear of anything luminous since I have extremely oily skin, but since Lancome marketed this for all skin types, I gave it a try and I am very happy I did. When I received my first bottle I was sure it was going to be way too luminous for me, since I could see a pearly swirl in the bottle, but to my surprise it wasn't at all! Plus, I don't notice that I get oily with Teint Miracle any quicker than I do with other foundations. It holds up through the day and still looks great after the second touch-up.

I would describe the coverage as medium leaning toward full, and definitely buildable. It's one of the few foundations that I feel provides adequate coverage with the first layer. I only have to touch up certain areas where I have excessive redness or blemishes. Teint Miracle has a semi-matte, natural glowing finish that looks like skin, but better. It's hard to describe, but it's perfect...just a healthy glow with no shimmer or sheen.

The texture is as nice as the's thin enough to blend easily, but thick enough to give great coverage in one layer. It's not too creamy, so it doesn't sit on top of the skin and slide around, but you have plenty of time to blend it in before it dries. It doesn't emphasize pores or any dry patches I may have, and it looks just as good regardless of what state my skin is in underneath.

I really can't find anything I don't like about this foundation, and I will continue to repurchase it again and again. I love it more and more with each application, and anything else I try after using it feels like a big disappointment...even foundations I previously loved. The price ($37) is very reasonable for something so amazing, especially considering I have tried more expensive foundations that don't hold a candle to Teint Miracle. Definitely give this one a try! I can't say enough good things about it.
