Guerlain Tenue de Perfection Timeproof Foundation

This new foundation from Guerlain promises a flawless, velvety soft finish which lasts, thanks to something called Timeproof Complex (no, I have no idea either).

Unfortunately the shade I received is far too warm for me - the difference in tone between my neck and my face is a little off putting - but I can confirm that the texture is rather amazing for a long wearing foundation.  Instead of being thick and heavy, it's a light, easily blendable fluid which spreads well with fingers or brush.

The finish is pretty flawless too, treading the line between matte and radiant, and looking surprisingly like natural skin given the long-wear formula.  I'm wearing Rose Naturel, and I suspect I'd be better off with the more neutral toned Beige Naturel, or even Beige Clair which is a little paler.

One thing to note is that this foundation is surprisingly heavily fragranced - it's not detectable on the skin once applied, but simply pumping a drop onto the fingertips brings a noticeable scent.

If you'd like to try it for yourself, it costs a fairly whopping £37 at House of Fraser - definitely worth getting colour matched in store before shelling out then.
