Guerlain L’Essentiel High Perfection Foundation is the newest foundation from the house. The previous Guerlain L’Essentiel Natural Glow Foundation that launched a few years back is one of my go-to foundations until I started using this one from the brand. It is also one of the most visited articles on my website. This High Perfection version really caught my eye and interest to try it on. Guerlain L’Essentiel Primer is one of my favorite primers, especially when I need a very lightweight and comfortable base. It is also perfect to use in summers when my skin is a bit oilier than usual. It refines the skin and controls excess shine.
Guerlain L’Essentiel High Perfection Foundation follows the same design and packaging as the Natural glow version and the primer from the range. The bottle was designed by Mathieu Lehanneur. The inspiration behind this is the subtle art of balance. The bottle has an elegant frosted finish. I find it very unique and cute.
Not just the duo but the L'Essentiel brush is also a favorite of mine. It is very smooth and soft, which helps for flawless, even coverage that looks natural. The retractable brush is easy to use and travel with.
Guerlain L’Essentiel High Perfection Foundation is available in 30 shades. I have swatched 4 shades for your reference that are suitable for medium skin tones:
- 035N Beige
- 35W Beige Warm
- 04N Medium
- 04W Medium Warm
Guerlain L’Essentiel High Perfection Foundation is made from 96% naturally derived ingredients. The formula is very lightweight and comfortable on the skin. It is very smooth and creamy. The formula applies and blends without effort. The coverage is medium to medium-full. It is a pleasure to apply with the L'Essentiel brush. Moreover, it does not feel heavy or thick. It instantly blurs the problem areas and pores. Overall, the skin looks flawless. The skin looks even, radiant, and beautiful. It is not drying and also, does not emphasize any dryness or problem areas.
I like that the finish is natural velvety matte. It does not look flat or mask-like but is naturally radiant. Guerlain L’Essentiel High Perfection Foundation has impressive longevity. I find it lasts all day on me. At the end of the day, I do see it more radiant but that looks really natural and radiant. It has a subtle fragrance, similar to the L'Essential primer, that dissipates quickly. The scent is musky woody with white almond as the top note, white tea and middle note, and white musk and tonka bean as base notes. Overall, this foundation makes my skin look amazing and beautiful. It is perfect for everyday wear.
