I wish I had discovered luxury makeup brands years ago because I love being on board for a brand's journey. Guerlain is one of those "old house" brands that have so much history that I often feel like I am completely out of my element when it comes to talking about their products, but I need to start somewhere right? I think I now understand why ANYTHING Meteorites gets people excited so it's time to tackle Lingerie de Peau ($69.00 CDN). This is a light and skin-like foundation whose formula was recently revamped last year. Unfortunately, I have no means of comparison as I have never tried the old formulation, but this new one is just DREAMY!
The secret behind this formula appears to be a "Bio-Fusion micro mesh" that allows a proprietary blend of silk and natural linen fibers to smooth and hug the curves of the face to give a transparent and radiant finish. I was sent the shade 03W* which is now too dark since I have lost my summer tan. I was squeaking by in the Fall, but I took it out the other day and it was just not working for me anymore so I will have to get a tan or wait until the sun comes back!
What you will notice right away about this foundation is the rose-scent. It's fairly strong, but does disappear once applied to the skin. The texture reminds me so much of a BB cream in that it is utterly lightweight, but has great coverage. It is fairly fluid in texture so application with fingers works as well as with a sponge or brush. I am a Beauty Blender gal, so I dot my forehead, nose, cheeks and chin and that seems to cover everything!
I always aim for even coverage on my cheeks since I have a ton of broken capillaries there and as you can see in the after photos, I have that coverage!
Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Fluide Foundation is available at all Guerlain counters and Sephora.
