So, this is not the cheapest of makeup bases, but oh my goodness, it’s the best! Tati Westbrook made me buy it after seeing her using it on her videos. I decided to splash out and see what the hype was all about.
On the website it says, “Guerlain l’Or is an embellishing make-up base sprinkled with pure 24-carat gold flakes”. Gimmick aside, this is actually the smoothest primer I’ve ever used and every single one of my foundations that I’ve tried with it becomes so easy to work with and it truly enhances the wear time.
My favourite foundation at the moment is the Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Foundation. I have been wearing it everyday with the Guerlain underneath, and I have to say, the combo is absolutely stunning. I’ve had so many comments on my skin and complexion. This can’t be a coincidence, I look in the mirror and everything just seems to work. I’ve got no creasing under my eye, and my problem area of foundation breaking up on my chin and end of the nose is dramatically reduced.
So, yes, this primer is expensive at around 300AED (£55) a bottle, but a little goes a very long way.
Tip: make sure you put your foundation on quickly after applying the primer. This seems to give the best results.
A review of the Laura Mercier foundation is coming!
Have a great day!
