SS19 Foundations: Chanel, Hourglass, Dior, Guerlain, Estee Lauder

There are always new foundations out for Spring, and SS19 is not an exception,  there are at least 10 new launches I can think of, on top of my head. So I’ve decided to choose a few different ones just to give you an idea of what is coming out. All foundations are available in many different colours, except Chanel.

I haven’t tried any of these  so I am providing the official descriptions.


“Naturalness & make-up performance come together for the first time at Guerlain. A foundation made with 97% naturally-derived ingredients with a natural glow finish that lasts for 16 hours. The complexion is perfect, luminous and fresh. The comfortable texture becomes one with the skin, making it ideal for buildable coverage (light to medium)”

Not sure what I think of the quirky bottle but it definitely stands out, and the foundation sounds like something I personally would love.

Guelian is available  from Escentual,  Harrods, Saks,  Neiman MarcusBergdorf GoodmanSelfridges and   Nordstrom.

HOURGLASS Vanish Seamless Finish Liquid Foundation (£56/$51)

“Weightless, instant full coverage is delivered through the formula’s innovative coated pigments – allowing for seamless application and long-wearing,second-skin adherence. A natural finish is delivered through light-refracting microspheres, blurring and smoothing any imperfections for virtually perfect skin”.

A new Hourglass launch is always a big deal, as all of their products [which I’ve tried] are phenomenal.

“A multiuse powder that can be worn as foundation, or over it, with customizable coverage, long wear, and an oil-controlling matte finish.Can be worn as a foundation or over it. Can be used wet or dry.”

Double Wear has a cult following, so I am sure this new foundation from the range will have a lot of fans, as well.
