For reference I'm NC40/42 and was matched to #23 Dore Natural which is close but not perfect - it pulls a tad too orange for me. This is a very nice foundation that feels lightweight and comfortable. The price tag is very high at $58 for a 1oz bottle which is not unreasonable for a special occasion foundation. There are many others which are equally nice but less expensive for every day. For drier skins try the Guerlain Parure foundations. I think this is best for normal to combination skin.
After hearing much buzz about this product and on a foundation hunt I had to try it. Several days later Im inclined to purchase a full size. For reference Im nc 30, matched to shade #3 with sensitive and dry/combo skin.
I am looking for a foundation that lets MY skin shine through, to look radiant, glowy, healthy and more importantly real. This works wonderfully with my skin, looks very natural and does not break me out!
For anyone with dry to mild combo skin I'd highly recommend checking this out. I am curious to see how it holds up to flash photography but I hope it does not flash back, either way 5 stars!
EDIT:::: This Foundation only matches my skin when I get super tanned/slightly crispy nc30-35ish with some redness in my skin. This has red/brown undertones not yellow. Guerlain has made an amazing foundation with a complete JOKE of a color range. I probably need shade 32 or 33 *which doesnt exist*- they need to amp up their yellow/golden undertone shades.
This is by far the best foundation I've tried! I'm so happy that I finally found something that works wonderfully for me. For reference, I'm an NC37-NC40 & use #23 in this foundation. It provides medium coverage & covers up the hyperpigmentation on my cheeks very well. I use my Guerlain Meteorites in Teint Dore as a finishing powder & my face just glows afterwards =)
Its true that this foundation is very expensive but I've found that I use a little less than a full pump on a daily & theres still PLENTY left.
Pretty much the best foundation I've ever used. I'm very sensitive to cyclopentasiloxane so I'm always looking for foundation without it, and this has none! This doesn't break me out, feels great on my skin, comes in lovely packaging, smells good and looks awesome. It really does blend well with my skin and works over my moisturizer. I'm half Chinese and half Caucasian, so my skin is an odd pale color and I use 02 and it's a really good match. It IS an expensive foundation, but it took me forever to use up, I'd say at least a year of daily use. The pump is great, too, very easy to control. I use one pump for my whole face, two if I feel like I need more coverage. This is a medium coverage foundation and easily sheered out to a tint. Honestly, I love it and would totally buy it again. Good job, Guerlain!
I like this foundation so much that I've bought the cream version too. It's def not a full coverage foundation. I think it's between an TM and a foundation. It gives coverage, but you can still see your own skin, wich is a good thing! For those with oily skin, this isn't for you.
Since my favorite foundation max factor lasting performance was discontinued (or i just can't find it anywhere either in Germany or Turkey, I was looking for a new liquid foundation. I read about this one on a blog but i knew it was very expensive (48 euro in Germany). Just out of pure luck there was a sale on it in a store and I got it for 38 euro (still can't believe it).
the packaging is so pretty, i love it i keep it in the box ( don't know why but sometimes even though i'm not going to use it, i open the box and take a look at it)
I also like the light consistency. it doesn't weigh on your face. one pump covers all of my face. Unfortunately the coverage is light to medium, but it's buildable.
I can say that ingerie de peak is my new favorite foundation and i would repurchase it.
I picked this up a few weeks ago, unfortunately I didn't select a good colour match and it's really too light for me, however, that's 100% my own fault, can't blame the foundation! So I'm basing my review on everything else bar my incorrect colour matching! The coverage is medium I would say, it's got an excellence finish, its radiance enhancing without making me look overly shiny. I've got combination skin which is especially oily in the t zone in the 46 degree heat we are having here in Bahrain right now. This foundation stands up to the extreme heat well, it hasn't been sliding off my face and actually wears off very evenly. I do have to blot but that's to absolutely be expected in this weather. Im currently mixing a little dr hauschka bronzing concentrate in with it to correct the colour problem but I'm really looking forward to using it minus the bronzing gel and extreme weather in the winter time. I would definitely recommend this foundation.
make skin looking even
medium coverage foundation
very little product for your entire face (one pump is enough)
perfect for winter - iven beter with primer! (foto)
light and long lasting
consistency - runny liquid
for me it is only winter foundation (it oxidizes when it's to hot, perhaps my oily skin is to blame)
review and photos on my blog
The best Foundation i ever had.staying power is really good.
i have combination skin and it helps to be mat for a few hours.
make my skin looking even and perfect.
Thanks to the fat injection & photofacial laser, my skin took a dramatic change, for the better. I used to be NC 30-37, now I am NW 25, which means I need some new foundation.
I passed by a Guerlain boutique and just couldn't resist it, so I got this fdn, in 03 Beige Natural.
Not a bad foundation, light to slightly medium coverage, spreads easily, no problem with staying power on my dry skin (always moisture before fdn, ever since I was 17). Natural, satin matte finish, but that's all. A lot of my other fnd. at a fraction of price does the same job, eg. Avon's Ideal Flawless Invisible Coverage fdn, funny how both bottles looks like fraternal twins.
For that price, I will not re-purchase.
