After being satisfied with the performance of Make Up For Ever’s HD Invisible Cover Foundation, I was curious as to what such a high class house as Guerlain can offer. The higher quality is noticeable from first application (and reflected in the price). The foundation seems to sink in and feels like a second skin: it’s smooth, long-lasting, and invisible, provided the right shade is chosen. The silky feel of it is reminiscent of indulging in a silicone cream.
I use foundation especially around my eye area to cover darkness because it turns out smoother than concealer. When blended well, it is absolutely invisible. Even though MUFF’s foundation was already pretty good, it did deposit somewhat in the tiny skin folds of the lower eyelid close to the lash line. This wasn’t a problem to begin with because it was easily smoothed out. Lingerie de Peau deposits even less. A fully dressed face lasted me 12 hours without any touch-ups, excluding the lower eyelid.
In terms of coverage, Guerlain’s foundation is less than MUFF’s, at about medium. Of course, it can be made sheer with the Beautyblender. There are also less colour options. My skin contains a pink hue, which 12 Rose Clair mimics perfectly. The colours currently offered by Guerlain in its Lingerie de Peau Invisible Skin Fusion line do not capture redder shades, catering more towards the beige and yellow spectra. I hope Guerlain rectifies this eventually because the foundation is really very good.
