Guerlain Face Collection 2016 - Lingerie de Peau Foundation

Guerlain made the idea of a naturally flawless-looking skin a reality by introducing Lingerie de Peau, lingerie for the skin that drapes it in comfort and sheer silkiness, while providing unprecedented coverage and a perfect natural finish. Guerlain has introduced Lingerie de Peau Natural Perfection Skin-Fusion Texture Foundation SPF20 ($63) with a newly revamped shade range, plus the Multi-Perfecting Concealer and Foundation Brush. I'll introduce the concealer and foundation brush to you in the next feature, hopefully later today. The following information was taken from the press release (hence the writing style).

Guerlain has taken a new step in reinventing a flawless natural complexion with Lingerie de Peau Foundation in 14 shades, from fair to deep - one for every woman. Invisible to the eye and touch, the sublime formula and sensory texture is the ultimate lingerie for the skin, smoothing and shaping to create a second skin that will leave you looking more beautiful than ever.

Unique Features
  • Innovative cosmetic bio-composite renders an extraordinary second-skin texture with a spectacular natural finish and properties of incredible lightness, extensibility, and hold. 
  • Uniquely comfortable, its formulation is so light it becomes transparent. The complexion is fresh, radiant, and natural.
  • Bio-fusion micro-mesh for a unique affinity with the skin, Guerlain Research relied on in-depth studies of the most advanced materials: bio-composites. These new substances derived from blending synthetic polymers and natural fibers provide an unprecedented combination of smoothing and shaping stretch fibers and natural linen and silk fibers for a complete affinity with the skin.
  • Natural polymers are silk and linen fibers that have an inherent compatibility with the skin because they are composed of a protein that acts in perfect osmosis with the keratin present in the skin. It allows them to adhere naturally to the skin's surface and lend it the softness and radiance of silk and the comfort of linen. 
  • The synthetic fibers are veritable stretch fibers that expand as needed to embrace the contours of the face and ensure lasting coverage. They help to create a flexible weave to support, smooth, and shape the skin.
Here is a shade chart to help existing users find their new shade. Just click on it to enlarge it if it's hard to read. As you can see, the shades are grouped in cool, neutral, and warm families. They are also grouped that way on the store display (shown at the top of this feature).

Lingerie de Peau Foundation is available (officially August 15, although my Neiman Marcus has it already) at Guerlain Boutiques, select Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdale's, Dillard's, and online.

Really interesting formula! I'll probably try this one. I can't seem to find the correct foundation for my skin.

The Nudes collection is the one I've been waiting for because I've worn Langerie de Peau off and on for many years. It is a perennial favorite. And, although I seldom wear concealer, I am curious about the new one from Guerlain. I have yet to see a concealer that really looks good on a woman of my age, but perhaps Guerlain (with its older demographic) will have come up with something worthwhile.

So looking forward to this - love Guerlain's foundations so much. Hope this gets to the UK soon!

I love Guerlain foundations. Worth every penny. They revamped the Gold earlier in the year. I have used Lingerie but really perfect the Lumiere, I will assume it will be next for a revamp? Always Shade 02 Beige even thought I am pink undertones the pink shade are always too pink on me.

Well, I hope 02W still has pale yellow olive tones like 31 Ambre Pale does because the swatch looks quite different. I've tried the 32 Ambre Claire in Asia in the past, and it was way too dark for me.

I can't thank you enough for this. When I first read it, I remembered I had a sample I wanted to try. It turned out to be a perfect match. That has never happened before to me. I was going to test it a few more days but decided to get 02 before the new one came out since it may not be the same shade. I really had to search for it. Almost bought one from Neiman but checked back to you and sure enough the one with the strange black panel is the NEW one so my search continued. I finally did find it without the black patch and immediately put it in my cart. The warning "only 2 left" came up. I have never rushed through a checkout that fast. I really owe you! THANK YOU FOR THIS POST and for all your wonderful posts. I count on you a lot. Laine
