Guerlain foundation L’Essentiel Natural glow 16h wear – SPF 20

Guerlain has a new foundation and the bottle is really incredibly beautiful.. it is not out yet all over the place, but soon it will be. Here is what I was able to dig online.. check the bottle.. isn’t it just adorable?

L’Essentiel – Natural glow foundation 16h wear – SPF 20

 

 

It also comes with a brush that you buy separately.. but I really don’t care that much about the brush as it does not appear to be easily cleanable.

See photo of the brush down below. I am just attracted by this bottle shape created by a designer.. just adorable..

 

DESCRIPTION

Naturalness & make-up performance come together for the first time at Guerlain.

A foundation made with 97% naturally-derived ingredients* with a natural glow finish that lasts for 16 hours**. The complexion is perfect, luminous and fresh. The comfortable texture becomes one with the skin, making it ideal for buildable coverage (light to medium).

With L’Essentiel, bare skin is more beautiful, day after day. The formula lets the skin breathe; hydrates, balances and protects the skin from pollution. The complexion is more even; the appearance of imperfections is reduced.

An unique and disruptive bottle by the designer Mathieu Lehanneur, inspired by the subtle art of balance.

Shades are:

Available in 30 shades to match every skin tone.

*Calculation based on the international ISO standard 16128 Parts 1 and 2. The remaining 3% contribute to optimising the formula’s integrity over time and its sensorial texture.
**Instrumental test conducted by an independent laboratory on 20 women.

FRAGRANCE

A musky woody fragrance that opens with a white almond top note.
The delicate middle note of white tea reveals a soft and creamy sandalwood base note.
Its charm is sublimed by white musk and tonka bean notes.

IN MY CASE, I can use any fragrance that Guerlain decides to put in their products, in fact.. I will go one step further and add that one of the main reasons I come back to Guerlain products is because of the incredibly beautiful scent that they put in their products..for instance the face powder called Les Voilettes, that comes in a compact, that is like aromatherapy for me. The scent is so deliriously beautiful that I like to sniff the powder before wearing it .. that is also what the sales girl has told me at the duty free store when I was buying the powder.. She told me she smells the powder a few times then uses it. She feels happy. So do I.
