I’ve tried hundreds of foundations over the years that promise you the world. From covering blemishes and evening out the skin tone by filling fine lines, to giving you that healthy-looking radiant skin. The truth is most of them don’t deliver as much as promised. Some might oxidize throughout the day while some may slip and slide on the skin. I have combination skin that can be oily and dry, all at the same time, exacerbated by ingredients like acids or central heating and cold weather.
From a beauty lover’s point of view, I always get excited by pretty packaging. The fabulous Gucci’s Fluide de Beauté stole my heart a little due to the frosted glass bottle, millennial-pink lid, and delicate gold font. The packaging isn’t just a win, the quality is too. It provides medium coverage, is blendable yet silky due to the star ingredient dimethicone. . Just one pump is enough to cover all the areas that need addressing. I love to blend it with hydrating primer to achieve a dewy instead of a matte finish.
Let me say this; a slight veil of the foundation almost looks like I’m wearing a real-life soft focus filter. Pretty but not exaggerated. The foundation comes in 40 shades and has many options for women of color with a steady focus on the undertone. Hooray! (30 ML | € 58)
Layer the foundation with the Poudre de Beauté Mat Naturel (€ 55) that will keep your foundation looking like your skin but better. I have been using it as a touch-up during the day or prior to any zoom meeting. If your skin is looking this flawless after application a kick-ass lipstick (€ 40) like the is all you’ll need and will stand out proudly.
