Lingerie de Peau Compact Foundation has a cream foundation on one side and a thin strip of concealer on the other.
The foundation has light-to-medium coverage, but unlike most creams, it's very lightweight and lets my skin breathe. It's also rather moisturizing for my normal/combination skin, so although it's great for the winter, I might need to lightly touch up with a powder once a day on days over seventy degrees Farenheit. For this reason, I don't quite think it's the best product for oily skin, unless you wear primer and set it with a powder.
The concealer side has good pigmentation, but it's not completely opaque and is thicker than the foundation. I would say that it's buildable.
Both products stay put all day and look natural. They have a satin-to-luminous finish. The added SPF 20 is a nice bonus, but I know some people don't like SPF in their makeup.
Placed to the right of the foundation and concealer is a sponge. I don't really like to use the sponge for application of either product, but it's decent and doable for on-the-go touch-ups. Otherwise, I'd rather use my Sigma F82 brush for the foundation and fingers for the concealer.
Like most high-end products, a subtle fragrance is prevalent, but it subsides after a few minutes and it's not particularly prominent at all.
I had to lower the rating for its lack of a variety of shades, though. I'm currently NC30-35 and 04 Beige Moyen is too dark for me. Luckily it's sheer enough for me to pull off, but I'm still going to reserve this for the summer when I'm more NC35-40ish. I also find that it's golden in tone--I have slight yellow-olive undertones and unless I wear a neutralizing primer underneath and/or neutral powder on top, I look like an orange freak.
Overall the compact is sleek and easy to carry around. It has a magnetic closure and full-sized mirror inside for travel-friendliness.
It retails at $70, which is about $20 over the usual amount I spend on foundations, but hey, it's Guerlain, so I didn't lower the rating for the price considering the amount of product you get is decent (30 ml).
Would I repurchase? No--not because it's a bad product (it's not), but because it's just not the type of product I prefer.
I would not buy this product again based on the price (I got this at half price off, very happy with this deal). This is a beautiful foundation with very light coverage. Even though the coverage is light it gives a lovely finish to your skin which feels like satin when you wear it. Very comfortable to wear, good portable case with a good mirror, concealer (more like a highlighter) included which is really good. I prefer this to the liquid version. The shade range is quite limited, I am approx NC25 and wear shade 2, Beige Clair which is a little bit on the light side (shade 3 is a bit on the dark side...).
I realy like this product it is very amazing the package is elegant and it contains a very nice foundation which make you feel very moisturized and velvet and also the concealer is super non drying and not cakey at all i love this product
LdP compact comes in a classy packaging and is ideal to be carried around.
I bought it in 02 beige clair (I'm nc15) and it's a good match but I think it's only because this product gives very light coverage. If coverage was higher I believe it would be a little too dark. I know there is a shade 01 and I suspect it would be a perfect match but it's not sold were I live :(
The foundation feels very comfortable, like I don't have make up on :)
It corrects the skin tone and gives that look of perfect skin if you don't have much to cover. I like the fact that it has spf 20.
Like other Guerlain cosmetics it is scented (which I don't really like) but it faints soon after the product is applied.
Unfotunatelly it doesn't last as long as other foundations on my skin. I put my make up to go to work in the morning and at night there's not much LdP left to be removed (and I do set it with powder). Not to mention the price tag.
The concealer is good, doesn't crease or cake but also gives ligth coverage and has to be set with powder.
I just bought this in 04 Beige Moyen. I'm a NW25. It's an amazing product. Feels like silk. Wears like air. Looks like magic. What I especially like is that the concealer comes in the compact. It's a rough gig buy a foundation then try to find a perfectly matching concealer. In this compact, the foundation and concealer are perfect matches.
This is a 2-in-1 product. There is a cream to powder foundation and a concealer to boot. The coverage is very natural, velvety and adjustable coverage. The concealer has a good pigment. You get a sponge with the compact, but I prefer to use a brush as a sponge will cause you to use up too much product too quickly. I love the finish of this foundation, and the portability of it as well.
