Beauty biz – LINGERIE for the skin?

What’s in a name?  Obviously something that attracts to get your attention.  Something that gives an impression of gliding on like a silk stocking or wears invisibly like a second-skin, like lingerie itself.….which appeals to me.  A good marketing tool? I had to check it out.

peau2Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Invisible Skin Fusion Foundation SPF 20 – Product Review.    

            I said I’d never buy foundation but then I came across this one.  I think the name “lingerie” appealed to me at first and the fact that Guerlain products are “top-notch”so I had to sample it. The application felt really lightweight (you hardly need any) with a natural-finish and a light to medium coverage.  I like that it can be used even as a cover-up for trouble spots only.  It’s one of the most natural-looking foundations that still allows for adequate coverage for minor skin imperfections.  If you have just a couple of small areas to cover, it is workable to build up coverage on a spot-by-spot basis. The consistency is thin, not so thin it’s watery, but thin enough that it blends out easily and feels weightless once applied. I apply it with my fingers, but you can use a sponge or brush if you prefer. 


Its secret: hyaluronic acid, encapsulated in the Bio-Fusion micro-mesh, continuously captures and maintains water on the skin’s surface.  The unbelievably silky formula creates a natural radiance that captures and reflects light to reveal the look of naturally perfect skin.  Let’s FACE IT…it sure takes a lot of work to look Natural!

– Sulfates
– Phthalates
– GMOs
– Triclosan                                                                                                                                – Probably some other things we can’t pronounce
