Awesome Light Compact Powder Foundation

foundation guerlain

Hey it’s G,

Today I thought I would talk about something I used for the first time. A compact powder Foundation.

My sister gave me her foundation to try. The foundation is Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Powder Foundation Compact. The color is 04 Beige Moyen/Medium Beige. I always use liquid foundation but trying this one seemed interesting especially that I didn’t have to buy it 😛

The foundation comes in a luxurious black package. With only Guerlain logo in the middle. Inside the case there is a big mirror, a sponge, and of course the compact powder foundation.

This foundation is supposed to moist the skin and give a matte finish. Now, I’ll be honest I only tried it a couple of times, but I can say that it is Halo. It has a light coverage, and great with keeping your skin hydrated; and that is what made this foundation Clique with me.

foundationThe light coverage is great because it prevent you from having a cake-face. But if you want to have a medium to heavy coverage you would need to apply more than one layer. However, you need to be careful with the layering, because the more layers you apply the higher your chances of messing up the foundation and ending up with a cake-face.

Personally, I like the light coverage; and having the option of adding more foundation layers as needed is great too. Owing to the fact that I don’t wear a foundation everyday, and I don’t think it is good for the skin to wear full makeup on a daily basis. But if I had to wear one I would definitely use Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Powder Foundation Compact, it is very light and doesn’t suffocate the skin; it gave my skin a chance to breath.

P.S Keep in mind that due to the foundation’s light coverage you might have to do some touch ups during the day to fix it, especially around the nose and lips area.

I should also tell you that I have a dry skin. So, if you have an oily or mixed skin I am not sure if it will work as good for you as it did for me.
