Guerlain's LDP gives an effortless air-brushed look that is long lasting, not cakey, and does not emphasize my pores. This product feels and looks very much like my skin but better. I prefer thin layer and light coverage, but it is definitely build-able.
Since I have combination skin with an oily T, I love the fact that this is a one step face product, as I do not need extra face primer or setting powder. After about 4 hours only one sheet of blotting paper will suffice to remove excess oil from my T zone.
This is the most expensive foundation I've purchased, but after trying it out twice I knew I couldn't go back to my regular BB creams or foundations. It looked good in person or in photographs and is so light weight that I forget I have a foundation on. I think I have found my HG foundation :)
Scent? it's so lovely, light floral, I think it's violet :)
I would soooo get a second one as back up... but I know the bottle I have now will last me a long time... Just passing on the savings...
