Skin Tight

I love Guerlain’s liquid foundation. One of the benefits of being a blogger is that you get the occasional beauty products to try but I’ve yet to find anything that compares to Guerlain’s liquid foundation and so every few months, I’ll shell out the $500 or so for a new bottle. It’s just the right level of consistency, offers great coverage (except for days when my pimples come out to play). I hear that the Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Skin-fusion foundation line is adding a compact to their product range and I’m definitely keen to try it out. It boasts of a foundation and a concealer and is the first “all in one” complexion product from the brand. The Lingerie de Peau Skin-fusion line boasts of the foundation being like a second skin as it applies on so smoothly. It'll be good to see if the compact version can live up to its claims.

Interestingly, the press release came with instructions on how to put foundation and concealer on. While the illustration of the girl is slightly scary, I figured it can’t hurt to share it with you. Instructions copy and pasted after the cut.
1. Unify the complexion:
The complexion is evened out and smoothed with the sponge, using the foundation. The texture blends in perfectly, from the centre of the face outwards and towards the neck, making it possible to precisely adjust the degree of coverage.

2. Correct shadows:
Dark circles are chased away with the concealer, which is applied with the corner of the sponge and then gently stretched with the fingertips from the inside of the eye socket outwards. The concealer is lightly patted over imperfections to hide them better before smoothing with the other side of the sponge.

3. Illuminate the face:
The face is brightened with the concealer, which is dabbed onto the sides of the nose, the outer corner of the eyes, the corners of the mouth and the hollow of the chin and then fused with foundation using the fingertips.

Priced at $540/30ML, available 1st October, 2011
