Continuing with Sample reviews series, I have 2 lovely products to review today – Guerlain Parure de Lumiere Foundation and Clinique Universal Superprimer!
Guerlain Parure de Lumiere foundation
I’ve only worn this thrice but I’ve loved it in every application! Its essentially a hydrating, luminous foundation that gives a beautiful, flawless glow to the skin. The coverage is moderate and very natural and the finish isn’t matte but not very dewy either. Its not the best formula for oilier skin but I’ve found that it works fairly well with a primer underneath. The only drawback is that it has very fine shimmer which gives it the luminosity which looks amazing otherwise but not in flash pictures (gives a slightly greasy look). But in person, it makes the skin look absolutely beautiful! I’ve found that shade no. 03 matches me perfectly. I’ve worn this foundation HERE.
Price : Rs 3500- 4000 (not sure of the exact price)
Clinique Universal Superprimer
The Clinique Superprimers have recently launched in India in many variants and I tried samples of the universal one and the anti-dullness variant. I loved the Universal one because it was not only hydrating and balancing but helped in controlling the shine on my T-zone as well. Winters is a tricky time for my skin because it gets dehydrated but the T-zone continues to be oily and this one did an excellent job of balancing it out. It prolonged the wear of my foundation and gave a smoother look to my skin as well. I wanted to include this in my bridal kit but it was sold out when I went to pick it up! 🙁
If you want a primer that does it all – this is the one to pick!
Price : Rs 1710

About Sample Reviews series : With beauty boxes and free samples with purchase on counters, I end up with quite a few sample sized products and I thought it’ll be useful to review them here as I end up talking about them anyway on Instagram or Twitter. Since I’ll only get few uses out of a sample size, these reviews will be shorter and less comprehensive than my regular reviews. I’ll be typically reviewing 2-3 products together. Hope you find this new feature helpful!
