What it is: A foundation that is made to be "fusional" so that it cannot be felt or seen.
"Imagine the delicious sensation of the lightest silk satin brushing against your skin…the sensual, sophisticated feel of materials enveloping the skin in softness, defining and shaping the curves, enhancing natural beauty".
Packaging: The foundation is packaged in a luxurious, heavy glass bottle with Guerlain's signature printed at the middle of the cap. The bottle contains 1 oz. of product. The foundation has a pump, which is my ideal packaging because you have control of how much foundation you want to be distributed. There is an SPF of 20.
Verdict: I have this shade in #23 Dore Naturel. The finish this foundation gives is fantastic. It is not dewy, or matte. It is in-between. You get a semi-matte finish, which looks natural and beautiful. The coverage is light to medium. The formula melts onto the skin, making it easy and quick to apply. The tools I use to apply the foundation are my fingers. I find that using my fingers allows me to work and blend away the product evenly. Because the finish is semi-matte, a setting powder is not required. The lasting power of the foundation is also spectacular. On me it lasts about 6 to 8 hours of wear. The foundation seems to also be photo friendly. Even though it contains SPF 20 it does not give the white cast in photos using flash. I have been using this product continuously for about two weeks and my skin has not experienced any problems. Overall, I am very happy with this foundation because of how natural it looks and feels on my skin.
***The only negative I find with Guerlain the brand itself, is the small shade range it carries in general. There are not many shades available. However, it is worth a try to check it out, your shade might be available.
