Top Reviews



no clinging to dry patches, a light dewy coverage that easily covers any redness in my face (i go a little overboard with exfoliating products and retin a for age prevention), it has a nice glow but it’s not too glowy, and it feels lovely and hydrating, oh, also it’s buildable but i don’t need to because amazingly, it’s perfect light coverage hides my pink cheeks in one pass, yes

- Sephora User

beautiful buildable coverage

clinique even better glow light reflecting makeup gives amazing medium coverage, covering all the flaws while also providing a hydrated healthy glow skin

- Macy's User


blends well

i would describe this as a light to medium coverage, but it blends and covers very well, evens skintone and leaves a natural dewy complexion

- Ulta User

i absolutely love this product - is blends so well and matches my skin tone perfectly

- Ulta User



i grabbed a sample of this wonderful product, and i was blown away by how smooth it made my skin and how glowy it looks

- Sephora User

pore minimizing

pore minimizing

the scars i have also dip into my face, so i was worried that this might just pronounce those scars/my pores, but it totally fills them in beautifully and evens out my whole complexion

- Ulta User

i love this foundation simply because it makes me look pore-less and flawless

- Clinique User

color accuracy


it made my fair olive skin look bright yellow

- Sephora User

upon closer look in a magnified mirror, the color made me look orange and it was streaky

- Sephora User



i work 12 and 24 hour shifts and i like when a foundation can look natural and last at least 12 hours

- Ulta User

this foundation sets in an looks amazing, with a great natural glow as the day goes by

- Sephora User


medium coverage

i'm 44 and thought i needed medium coverage but this product looks great

- Nordstrom User

i am impressed with the medium coverage and easy blending of this new foundation

Amazing Foundation, mind blown!

Ok, wow. I have over 50 highend foundations and it seems I'm having a problem in the Florida heat with some of them staying on my cupids bow. it's the first place i start to sweat and lately alot of my foundations are having problems staying on right there. I tried this one for a few days now in triple digits in this Florida humidity and heat and it didn't budge. If you start to sweat, especially really hard, just don't touch your face and let your face dry naturally and it doesn't move or disturb it at all. I've been working outside and had sweat literally dripping down my face and it didn't disturb my makeup or leave any Mark's, i then cooled off in the ac and just didn't touch my face while it was wet and it still looked like I had just applied it! This is truly a beautiful foundation. It is a medium coverage but it can be buildable. It is very skin like. the pics I'm posting with this will show you a comparison of when I had just put it on and 9 hours later, after sweating like a racehorse. The first pic is just applied and 2nd is 9 hours later. You can't tell a difference. I wore this on several days for 12 hours+ and it stays perfect all day. I am normal to dry. I also have fine lines and wrinkles, I'm 33. It doesn't sink into fine lines or expression lines at all on me and I usually have a bit of problem with that when I hit the 6 hour mark. This is worth the price even though I ordered it during the vib sale, I would gladly pay full price for this and will if and when I run out. one of the very few foundations i would actually repurchase. Less

Holy Grail - Natural, Everyday Beauty Approved

I cannot be more in love with this foundation! Gives me the perfect medium..buildable coverage with a natural set glow. I have extremely oily, congested skin and tend to get hyper-pigmentation from breakouts. My pores are huge, especially around my T-zone and for years I've been on the hunt for a foundation that I wouldn't have to spend 15 minutes layering on to get adequate coverage and won't clog my pores. Best of all, a little goes a long way and it's miraculously not cakey. It feels great too, not tacky to the touch once it dries. I tap it on with my sephora pro foundation brush for best results, but this can definitely be used with a BB blender.I do set it with the Guerlain color correction compact powder, so I definitely want to experiment how it treats me when I use other products to set my face. At least with this powder, my pores are minimized and the oil on my face is under control ALL DAY...Yes, they aren't kidding. It's 16 hour long wear or more. I live in hot, humid Miami weather and this baby does not melt one bit.The violet perfume smell is a little old-school and overwhelming when you first try it, but I promise with time it actually becomes a plus. My foundation brush always smells great and with my other skincare products, the smell doesn't bug me at all. It complements all fragrances well, doesn't irritate my allergy prone skin, and offers a hint of luxe nostalgia. Because lets face it, grandma was classy and boujee at a level greater than us millennials could ever aspire to be. Less

Really wanted to like this, but...

Beware! If you have sensitive skin, Even Better Glow may not be for you. After a single application of this foundation, my usually resilient face became an irritated, dry, scaly mess!. I discovered after using it, that the culprit could be the grapefruit peel extract (a known sensitizer). After 5 days of trying to coax my skin back to normal, it is still red and irritated. If you're looking for a light to medium coverage foundation, this does have a nice finish. It did start to break down after 4-5 hours, though, and emphasized small lines and imperfections. If you have any hyperpigmentation to hide, this won't do it. It also feels very dry on the skin, so you dry skin girls may want to look for something a bit more moisturizing.

Real-skin, luminous, natural finish

I’ve been a huge fan of Guerlain for years- I’ve bought every foundation they’ve released. The Lingerie de Peau is my HG, paired with the Precious Lights concealer gives the most beautiful natural look. So obvi I had to get this! The texture is similar to Lingerie, but a little thinner. The coverage is light to medium so don’t expect this to cover everything- it’s def a lighter coverage than Lingerie. With that being said, the finish is gorgeous. It looks like your skin but perfected and glowy. It’s really luminous without looking greasy so if you typically use a setting powder- you’ll def need one. It doesn’t settle into fine lines or wrinkles at all. This would probably be best for drier skin types or people living in drier climates.The only downside is the fragrance... I get that they wanted to use mostly natural ingredients so I understand why it doesn’t have the usual pleasant fragrance most Guerlain products have- but there’s a smell that lingers. It doesn’t bother me that much because it doesn’t smell terrible but I could see it bothering others.Anyway, overall this foundation is def worth trying if you’re looking for natural, light to medium coverage with a real skin appearance that looks great even after 10 hours! Less

I really like this foundation. I waited to review it until I used it for a couple of months to see if it performed well consistently. I'm a foundation freak- I'm almost embarassed to admit how many different foundations I've bought over the years and even have a "collection" for different situations and events. I've found that I like a lot of foundations on first use, but as I keep using them I break out, notice rapid oxidation, coverage starts lacking, etc. Guerlain L'Essentiel stands out.I have combination skin which is sensitive, acne prone and has uneven tones and very uneven texture. I've gotten my acne completely under control, but I still have scarring, redness and texture issues that I'm working on. My skin can get very oily and without a good primer, most foundations slide off. Furthermore, a lot of foundations seem to emphasize the poor texture of my skin.There is no perfect fit when it comes to make up when your skin is rough and textured, but this one comes close. The coverage can be built up to medium and has a very natural, pleasant look. I don't build it up too much in order to keep a natural look. I find I can apply it with my fingers and it still looks good, but a foundation brush is my preference.I don't touch it up as much as I did when I wore other foundations. It doesn't sink into my pores at all, which is a miracle considering they're like giant sinkholes. It smooths their appearence, covers my redness and diffuses my scars. I haven't gotten a single break out from it at all, which is very rare for me. Shake well before use and use a powder with it since it's not a matte foundation. This has been my go to foundation for months now. It's pricy, but worth it. Less

Hey! I like to mix my foundations with some moisturizer (Clinique Moisturizing Lotion) or primer (Too Faced Hangover Primer) when it gets cold like this. I have been loving L’Oreal Infallible Pro Glow Foundation as a drugstore option; a pricier option would be the Clinique Even Better Glow Light Reflecting foundation. It won’t cause acne and it keeps your skin looking refreshed throughout the day. Hope this helps!

I’ve been looking for a foundation that looks super natural on the skin. I hate being able to see it sitting on my face. I have somewhat dry skin so I can’t use anything with a matte finish. Any recommendations?

Cooling, and doesn’t leave skin feeling tight. They use some of their skincare ingredients in this as well hence why it’s slightly expensive and called a moisturizer, so in other words, it feels AMAZING and looks like my skin but skin is even and glowing from within. Easy application with fingers or brush; sponge eats too much product up. If this is too pricey, Clinique’s @Even Better Glow Light Reflecting Makeup is a great choice has more coverage too, but still gives hydrated feel and glow from within look.. all the colors just run a little on the warmer side.. hard to find true neutrals. Armani’s is just a better formula and effortless.. literally takes 1 min to apply it.

I have severely dry skin, foundation always looks caked on no matter what I do. I also struggle with eczema so I have dry patches 😪 I need a good foundation that’ll stay without making me feel like I’m gonna go crazy with the foundation on my skin. My little brothers wedding is this weekend and I want something that’ll last but not dry me out. Any suggestions?? Also open to a new primer to help with the problems!

I feel your struggle. I chemical exfoliate, physical exfoliate, oil my face at night, use vanicream (THICK) lotion, mix hyaluronic acid serums into my foundations, and still come out with very dry skin. For a more cost friendly option, I started using this Clinique foundation. A little goes a long way, I like that it’s dewy so I atleast don’t look dry, and feels super hydrating and doesn’t cling to dryness anywhere. But if I can I will always go to Giorgio Armani’s Prima Color Control Glow Moisturizer in shade 2.

For me, it has a slightly dewey finish and I can still see my freckles through it but it can be layered if you want a fuller coverage. For my t zone I use a setting powder and I don’t get too oily even in the heat. The best part of the product for me is how natural it looks on my skin, most people can’t tell I’m wearing any foundation!
