Product Review; "Guerlain Precious Light"
I feel like there isn't much I can say without even the vaguest reference to "The Lord of the Rings". We're talking a light-weight fluid with a tremendous highlighting property concealed within a gold tube and "precious" right there on the side. How could I not?
The formula has a sheer to medium build coverage that is just right for just under the eyes or over cheekbones for a bit of a highlight. Although, not a true concealer, Guerlain has managed to harness the benefits of Precious Light in 3 shades that will compliment skin tones and give the guise of a flawless complexion without the look of makeup.
While mostly suitable for light to medium tones, I've found myself using this tool for cleaning up imperfections while on set or touching up just the slightest mistakes when shifted to other lighting situations. It layers over other coverage products to create a soft glow and smoothes out patchy areas to maintain that luminescence even when dusted with powder. Perfectly compatible even over the eyelid area if you need a bit of a base for eyeshadow.
To dispense the product, there is a turning mechanism on the base that clicks with each twist to ensure the appropriate amount of product. And of course, it comes with a reusable velvet pouch to keep the gold tube shining...
