Guerlain | Lingerie de Peau Foundation

My favorite type of foundation is one that just looks like your skin – “so skin-fusing and natural that it can’t be felt, can’t be seen”.  I never got a chance to try Guerlain’s original formula but the reformulated foundation, released in late 2016, is right in the realm of what I like.

Product: Guerlain Lingerie de Peau (03N)

Price: £38.50


The foundation comes in a typical 30ml glass bottle with a handy pump.  The bottle is squared with a rounded front and the lid has the beautiful Guerlain brand engraved into the gold top.  Nothing less from Guerlain.


I use about half a pump and my Artis Oval 7 or my fingers to apply and another half pump if I’m looking for a bit more coverage that day.  The coverage is light and build-able to a medium coverage, which for me is more than enough to even out my skin.  It is easily blends into the skin and after it sets gives a beautiful smooth skin-like finish and almost like I am minimal makeup.  The best part for me is that the finish is neither dewy nor matte, but just the right in-between for healthy looking skin.

My other products layered beautifully over the foundation and the overall wear was about 6-7 hours before I started to notice a bit of fading around my T-zone.

There are 18 shades, so wide range of shades to select from for everyone.  I personally use the shade 03N, which is still currently a tad too light for me after coming back from a sunny holiday, but a little bronzer fixes that.

Although a bit on the pricier side for a foundation, I really loved how this looked and felt, so for me the slight premium price tag is worth it.
