Guerlain Lingerie de Peau

Guerlain recently unveiled a new foundation. My French is… nonexistent, but I managed to translate “underwear for the skin,” and the idea is certainly appealing.

Lingerie de Peau’s English name is Invisible Skin Foundation. It’s supposed to deliver incredibly natural, semi-matte, light texture, long-wearing coverage. A 1 oz. bottle is $56.

I’m ashamed to admit it took me this long to understand Guerlain’s foundation nomenclature, but I finally get it. If the first digit is 0, the foundation has beige undertones (and all the shade names start with “Beige”). If the first digit is 1, it has pink undertones (“Rose”). And if the first digit is 2, it has golden tones (“Dore”).

It is also worth noting that Lingerie de Peau a strong floral scent (I think it’s the same as their Kiss Kiss lipsticks, in case that bothers you).

I quickly swiped 02 Beige Clair and 12 Rose Clair on my cheeks, hoping to find my shade match. The lighting was weird, and the application technique was certainly less than ideal, but they both seemed really yellow.

    “Underwear for the skin” is about right. “Lingerie” is a specific term used for alluring and classy underwear (lace, silk, etc).
    Thank you for the swatches, they’re always very helpful. :)

    I had a real problem trying to find a match as well. Shades 02 and 12 were both a tad too dark :-(
