Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Natural Perfection Foundation

Guerlain 03N Naturel Lingerie de Peau
Guerlain 03N Naturel Lingerie de Peau

Guerlain 03N Naturel Lingerie de Peau ($63.00 for 1.0 fl. oz.) is the latest and greatest version of the Lingerie de Peau formula–it has been reformulated and now features 14 shades. The packaging was also updated to more of a rounded, square shape, which makes it easier to store, I think, and it is more comparable in diameter to many other liquid foundations on the market. The formula is supposed to be “invisible to the eye and to the touch” while “smoothing” and creating a “second skin.” It is a silicone-based foundation from what I can tell from the ingredient list. It has a very subtle floral fragrance–so subtle to my nose that I didn’t know it had fragrance until I checked for it.

Guerlain’s Lingerie de Peau is an exceptional foundation; I have always enjoyed it, and I’ve worn it extensively in its original formulation. I’m pleased to report that the reformulated version is excellent and has a comparable finish, wear, and blendability of the original. Where it differs is in the consistency: the new formula is much thinner and more like a liquid, whereas the original formula was more cream-like. I get more coverage faster with the original formula, but the new formula is more buildable from light to medium coverage. I wore them side-by-side one day, and other than that initial difference in application and cover, I couldn’t tell a difference between the two.

The new formula delivers buildable coverage from light to medium (about two layers), blends and spreads well across the skin and doesn’t sink into lines easily, sets and is touchable but still has a soft, natural finish, and looks like skin. I would actually agree that it made my skin appear smoother as well as more even in tone. The finish is just fantastic, as it doesn’t look overly dewy or totally matte but has enough luminosity to mimic the look of happy skin. The texture was thin, almost runny in a way, but it still yielded noticeable coverage in a single layer, which was easy to build upon as needed, whether all over or in specific areas. It took about a minute to two minutes for it to dry down, and it does look darker dried down than initially pumped from the bottle (true with the previous formula and most liquid formulas). I didn’t experience any oxidization or color changes throughout the day.

It wore well throughout the day, and it felt fuss-free because I often forgot I was wearing foundation at all–and that is the dream! It was easy to wear with or without setting powder, as it wore well and broke down nicely either way. The foundation was mostly transfer-resistant for me, even without setting powder, but if you are oilier, you might find it more likely to transfer. When I wore it on its own, it lasted for a solid ten hours with minimal signs of wear (slightly dewier but still even coverage). When I wore it with a setting powder, it lasted well for twelve hours. It wore long, and more importantly, well, because it was a gradual, even break down and doesn’t look oily, separated, or patchy at the end of the day.

Shade Range + Shade Tested

There are 14 shades available, and it is broken down into three groupings: cool (pink undertones), neutral (balance of pink and yellow undertones), and warm (yellow undertones). This is the most extensive shade range Guerlain has for any of its foundations, which is great news as the previous shade range was hard to fit into. However, the range could definitely use more medium-dark and darker shades (the range is more concentrated for fair to light-medium). I bought 03N Naturel to try, as I normally mix 02 Beige Clair and 03 Beige Naturel in Guerlain’s foundations (including the previous Lingerie de Peau formula), but I think 02N Naturel is going to be the better match as 03N Naturel is about a shade too dark on me. It matches the darker parts of my face but is noticeably different from my neck, so I’ve usually blended down my neck, just past my collarbone, which makes it wearable on me. 03N Naturel was more neutral in undertone compared to 03 Beige Naturel in the older formula, just slightly. I suspect I’ll grab 02N Naturel next time there’s a gift card event/sale.

For other foundation shades that I’ve tried, please see this FAQ, which includes my best matches as well as ones I have tried that are too dark/too light.

About My Skin

I have normal-to-dry skin, which tends to be mostly normal but occasionally has dry patches or spots around my upper cheeks, eyelids, and around the nose. I am not always dry in these areas, though. I consider myself light-medium in color with soft, warmer yellow undertones; I am not a true neutral (sometimes neutrals can look rosy on me), but foundations that are touted as warm-toned can lean too yellow on my complexion if they have fuller coverage. My neck is lighter than my face, while the edges of my face are darker than the center, so I try to match closer to my neck to minimize how far down I have to blend. While testing this foundation, I was mostly normal throughout and only had a bit of dryness around my nostrils.

Round-up: Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colours

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colours
Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colours

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is supposed to be a “buildable, lightweight lipstick” with an “ultra-luminous” finish. They’re a good fit for someone who likes sheerer, buildable coverage in a traditional shade range. Some shades seem rather similar applied, so it is useful to swatch them in person or to only choose only one from a color family to ensure versatility in your stash. They are scented with the La Petite Robe Noire fragrance, which is sweet, fruity, and floral, and it is definitely noticeable applied (it stops registering to my nose after an hour or two), and I personally got a soapy, sweet taste at times while wearing them.

FORMULA OVERVIEW |
Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is supposed to be a “buildable, lightweight lipstick” with an “ultra-luminous” finish. They are deliberately scented to smell like La Petite Robe Noire, which is a sweet, fruity and floral fragrance–the scent is noticeable both in the tube and applied, though I do not notice it after about about an hour or so of wear (if you are sensitive to scent, I would consider trying these in person or purchasing with the ability to return). There was a somewhat soapy, sweet taste (it contains Stevioside, used as a sweetener) at times, particularly if I ate/drank with the lipstick on.

The coverage varied from semi-sheer to semi-opaque with a more stained-like appearance, as it wasn’t too slippery and had a natural sheen. Some of the shades run together, but they tend to look more varied once they are on the lips (and depending on the coloring of your natural lips, this may or may not be as apparent, particularly with pinker or redder lips). The sheerer nature of these makes it harder to know how they will look on against a mere swatch on the skin, and even from the tube-to-swatch comparison, they can look different.

They have a balm-like feel on the lips, and they tend to feel softer and melted as I applied them, but they weren’t too emollient or too thin or too thick. The formula wore between two and six hours on me with some of the richer, deeper shades lasted the longest, and it was lightly hydrating. As they’re a buildable formula (Guerlain describes it as one, two, and three-layer coverage), all swatches I did were using two layers. A couple of side notes: 1) the label is on the cap only, so if you take off multiple caps, it is possible to inadvertently put the wrong cap on the wrong shade, and 2) they can be less-than-ideal for storing, if you typically have yours vertical, as the flat-side has the label on it.
