MAKEUP | Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Fluide Foundation (New Formula) with Before and After

I find shopping for foundation just as complicated as shopping for jeans. You've got to try a few on before making a decision because like jeans are a staple for most outfits, foundation is just that for the face. I started wearing foundation in 2011 which is incredibly late in life, but it was only because I was scared to go shopping. Now that I know roughly where my skin sits on the colour shade scale, I'm not quite as fearful of trying something new. Fast forward to now and I literally have 30+ foundations and rotate around 5-6 on any given month, but one quality that is a must-have for me is weightlessness. I do not want to FEEL foundation on my skin. I mean, who does?

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!

Final verdict: This foundation was like a fine wine in that it looked better as the day went on. It really wore beautifully and just like it promised, seem to fuse right in with my skin. It was like My Skin But Better! I was also wearing LDP in this Guerlain holiday look and overall, I am just so pleased with the finish, wear time and how it invisible it feels on my skin. While this foundation caters more to lighter skin tones, I can only hope that Guerlain adds some darker shades in the future because LDP is everything I would want in a foundation and then some. I wasn't wowed initially, but I'm glad I wore it for a whole day because I am now completely sold!

Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Fluide Foundation is available at all Guerlain counters and Sephora.
