Reviews of Guerlain Parure Compact Foundation powder are extremely positive. So much so that I wanted to test all their “positivity” for myself and tell you about my impressions on the blog.
So, the compact powder-base with reflective particles Guerlain Parure Compact Foundation with Crystal Pearls SPF 20. Sounds promising.
Guerlain’s own packaging, which weighs decently …
Inside is a sponge for applying powder.
My first impression after seeing the result was: “Wow!”. Excellent coverage, hides minor redness and evens out skin tone!
It would seem that she has every chance of becoming the best powder that can replace foundation.
But not everything is so smooth …
First, the powder accentuates the flaking.
Secondly, after a while, it gradually disappears from the face, which speaks of its instability.
Thirdly, as a result, after 2-3 hours you see an unfavorable picture that requires intervention in the form of a second layer.
Solution: Use powder to set the makeup (over the foundation). And to reduce its coverage density to a minimum, you should use a brush, not a sponge.
Conclusion: I do not consider Guerlain powder as a base powder, which was originally announced by the manufacturer, due to the lack of the main quality – durability.
