In Serge Lutens’ book, working with the complexion, building up colour, has always been key to sculpting the face. Foundation can be used to sculpt rather than colour, creating a shadow and light effect. Serge Lutens sees it as a way to “bring out the true complexion”. An undetectable foundation that perfectly smooths and unifies the complexion for 16 hours.
This ultra-light, high coverage formula combines a matte finish and a second-skin effect. The extremely comfortable texture is appropriate for all skin types and is available as a refill. The darkest shade is nr. 150, which is still a little on the light side for me, yet mixed with a lightweight matching foundation it does work wonders on the skin as this texture is slightly mattifying and tends to narrow the pores. Would I recommend it? If you have combination to oily skin it’s definitely worth a try.
