I know that the above image is a odd choice to open a post on Guerlain's famed Lingerie de Peau foundation, but I wanted to share my experience the night before I did the swatches. While on a trip with my husband to Palm Beach, Florida last month, we ate at Cafe Boulud, a French restaurant at the Brazilian Court Hotel. For the first course, I ordered what I thought was vegetable soup...I received this bold bowl of chilled green liquid and a little skewer of escargot. Sometimes a picture truly is worth a thousand words. Bon Appetite.
That aside, the next morning, before heading to the serene and sunny private beach at the Breakers, I went to the Guerlain Boutique in the hotel to swatch as much foundation as humanly possible. I have already posted my images of the Lingerie de Peau Compact Foundation and Concealer (found HERE) and am excited to share images of its predecessor, Lingerie de Peau Invisible Skin Fusion Foundation.

Bottom Line: I first used Lingerie de Peau (#3) when it was released almost two years ago. This highly-rated formula really does seamlessly fuse into your skin, has lovely medium coverage, creates a lasting satin finish, offers SPF protection and is friendly to sensitive skin. If you can get past the classic Guerlain scent (kind of like roses) and find a match for your skin tone, then I suggest giving it a try!
