Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Mat Alive


You know all those ‘desk-to-dinner’ beauty features (which we’re guilty of writing ourselves…)? They’re all well and good – assuming that you have more than five minutes between meeting a deadline and meeting your date, or getting to the office party.

Frankly, what we all need right now is a foundation that can repair the day’s damage with a smoosh, swoosh, swish - and this is exactly that. Applied with its black sponge, Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Mat Alive is more than a powder – it’s a true compact foundation that conceals imperfections, leaves skin matte but not flat, and can be built over what you applied this morning without looking cake-y or weird. In fact, the results are seamless. (Seven shades – and we’d like to see more, of course. But on that note, wait for some BIG foundation news from Guerlain in 2019.)

Of course you can apply this anytime – and it is fantastic for daytime touch-ups generally. But think of this as your fairy godmother, in a sleek gold mirrored compact: yes, Cinderella, you shall go to that ball (or the pub, come to that) – and look flawless, with it.
