Liquid -GUERLAIN -Meteorites BABY GLOW Light-Revealing Sheer Makeup SPF 25

I thought this one is going to be my HG foundation.I don't know why but I had strong good feelings for it even though I had never tried it in per se..skip two coming paragraphs if you're not interested in my personal story
Lets first talk about one if the biggest problems of my life! I can't wear foundations.I don't know exactly when my problem started but gradually I saw that none of my foundations sit well on my skin.I started to try different brands.from drugstore to high-end.tried different ways of application.finger,beauty blender,brush,different moisturizes,with or without primer but nothing helped.I thought maybe BB creams and tinted moisturizers look better on my skin.but nope.I even don't know how to describe my problem.just that foundations don't sit well on my skin from the first minutes.they look blotchy,patchy in many spots and showup many dry patches.I changed my skincare regimen.moisturizer and hydrate my skin religiously but still I can't wear foundation/bb creams/powders/concealers &... even though my skin isn't that dry anymore
Now about my skin:it's normal to dry,more on the dry side,I don't have hyper pigmentation or fine lines(I'm 28),I have a few very tiny acne scars that are noticable just if one looks closely and very carefully,well actually there's not much to cover,still I need to wear makeup specially to even out my skin,I have mild redness on my cheeks and dark cycles under my eyes.more than that,I love makeup.being unable to put on foundation,concealer or any tinted cream is leading me towards dépression.the only foundation that works for me(not perfectly,just better than others) is Collistar Super Moisturizing Foundation,but it's very difficult to find in my country and it's lighter shades are totally unavailable,so I had to buy it in shade 4,usually second shade of foundations suit my light-medium NC20 ish(more on the light side)skin so I look like oompa loompa with shade 4,I have to mix it with Mac Face and Body in C1 to make it wearable but I can't say this method works perfectly,it just gives me a bearable look and I know whenever I run out of my Collostar foundation it's gone for good.so now I'm desperately on a hunt to find a foundation/BB Cream/tinted moisturizer that would work for me.I thought Guerlain Baby Glow is the one,maybe because Guerlain is one of my most favorite perfume brands,or because it's name is baby glow,anyway I paid 38USD(which is a true splurge for me) and did the blindbuy(I also bought Clarins Skin illusion Loose Powder Foundation as I thought maybe a powder foundation would work but that's another review)

Review:
It arrived three days ago.I LOVE it's packaging.it looks modern and girly still classy,isn't made of glass so is travel friendly and has a pump which I prefer.I also LOVE it's scent.it doesn't irritate my pretty sensitive skin and reminds me of Guerlain French Kiss,one of my favorite Guerlain perfumes.I bought it in 2 Clair/Light and eventhough it was a blindbuy it's a perfect match for my skin.I guess the best match I have ever had.It's not too yellow,not too pink.I also love it's glow.it doesn't have dewy,wet looking,shiney,or oily look.just glowy like healthy,well moisturized skin.but that's where it's good features,at least for me,come to an end.
First,it looks cakey AND shows dry patches.I applied very tiny amount on newly scrubbed and moisturized skin but it was still very cakey.I thought it might be my skin's bad but even when I tried it on my hand,it still looked very cakey
Second,it has laughable coverage!
I'm into natural look and sheer to medium coverage and I knew that this one is going to be a sheer one.but even my Maybellin Dream BB Cream has twice(or more) better coverage.I can't even imagine how it would look on someone with textured skin.it doesn't even cover the redness of my cheeks and they've been always easily covered by any tinted cream..when I apply it on half of my face there's only one way to find out which side has foundation and which side is bare skin:the side that's patchy and cakey yet as uneven as bare skin and looks waaay worse than bare skin except that it has a hint of nice glow on cheeks is Baby Glow's side
I know three days is too soon to judge a foundation but I don't have much hope to see improvements.I'm so disappointed and wish I bought and tried Givenchy Balm or Diorskin Spray,or Vichy Dermablend,even Bourjois Healthy Mix,anything but this.with other foundations at least my skin looks good from a meter away

Bronzers -GUERLAIN -Terracotta 4 Seasons Tailor-Made Bronzing Powder

I have the 05 for Brunettes - I love the color, I love the compact, I love the silky feel of the powder BUT (and it's a big BUT) - this breaks me out :-( this makes me very sad because I want to love this bronzer - I won't get rid of it and every few months I take it out and give it a try, and each time I feel like I break out and put it away again feeling a little sad.

Fragrances -GUERLAIN -Insolence

This is probably one of the best smelling fragrance out there for floral lovers out there, especially if you are into violet scent with powdery notes. The frosted glass bottle is simply beautiful and elegant - I wouldn't expect less from Guerlain. This fragrance makes me feel so feminine with just the right amount of sweetness and it last all day.

I don't see myself stop using it in my future - highly recommend.


Liquid -GUERLAIN -Lingerie De Peau Natural Perfection Foundation SPF 20

I received a tiny sample of this foundation after buying two amazing Guerlain perfumes(French Kiss and Gourmand Coquin),it's shade 03/Natural which is an almost good match for my N15/20 face but slightly darker than my N10/15 neck(my face is slightly darker than my neck,my face has a cool,pink undertone while my neck is neutal-slightly yellow).I guess shade 02 would work better for me as it oxidizes(but very slightly) eventhough shade 03 is easily wearable too.
It's scented and as a perfume lover I don't have any problem with scented makeup unless they irritate my skin or I don't like how they smell.this one doesn't irritate my sensitive,reactive skin even a bit
I applied it on my skin with fingers and without any primer.I had just moisturized an hour before with La Roche Posay Toleriane Ultra Fluid.this foundation has an almost liquid-like texture and I usually stay away from watery foundations because thick,moisturizing foundations sit better on my dry skin but this one was better than any liquid foundation I have ever tried.it blended smoothly on my skin with a sheer to medium coverage but still managed to cover the redness I have on my cheeks.it's exactly what I always expected a nude foundation to be like.a your skin but better look,and it was really as if I don't have any makeup on my face,just a nice,even natural skin.it's not matte by any means but not dewy either.it's EXACTLY like natural,healthy skin
But it started to show up dry patches on my skin after half an hour.I can't blame this foundation as it happens for me with 90% of foundations.at least it didn't look dry and powdery or cakey.it kept looking perfect from half a meter away but I could see tiny dry patches when I looked closely in mirror.after couple of hours it remained unchanged just that it looked a bit more dry
all in all I like it and believe it can be a perfect foundation if your skin isn't extremely dry or extremely oily and if you prefer natural/nude look..right now Hiland mall has a 15% discount on all high-end cosmetics and I will probably choose Guerlain Baby Glow over this(it may be a foolish decision as I'm going to have an online shopping and have never tried that one)
but I will tik repurchase as I know I'm going to buy Lingerie de Peau Natural Perfection Foundation some day.when my skin's dryness problem is solved a bit


Lipstick -GUERLAIN -Rouge G de Guerlain Lipstick - Jewel

I was given this lipstick in No. 23, Geisha--a beautiful true red. I love it. It goes on with a smooth texture and doesn't dry out my lips. The lipstick itself wears off subtly (no flaking) and leaves a lovely even stain behind. Great quality and worth the (admittedly fairly high) price.
