Guerlain Baby Glow, Guerlain Baby Glow, Guerlain Baby Glow… Now try to say that three times really fast without thinking of tiny glow-in-the-dark infants.
It’s almost impossible, isn’t it?? THOSE DAMNED GLOWING BABIES.
I’ve always wanted to look like an incandescent infant.
OK, not really. 🙂 But I like the idea behind Baby Glow. It’s a sheer foundation that’s supposed to make you look less stressed and flat-out exhausted by appearing to plump your skin (only aesthetically; it doesn’t actually plump it) and make it look more luminous.
The new product line recently launched with the spring collection in just three shades ($54 each) — 02 Clair, 03 Medium and 04 Dore.
I’m closest to 04 Dore, the deepest shade (incidentally, I’m an NC42 in MAC-speak), a medium-toned peachy golden tan, although I think it’s still a tad too light for me to wear on its own, so I warm it up with some bronzer or mix it with a darker foundation.
I have worn it a few times around the house by itself to get a sense of it, and even though the color isn’t a perfect match, I abso-friggin-lutely love how Baby Glow looks on my skin.
It evens everything out, smoothes my pores and adds a very subtle tint. Booyah to the satiny finish, too (very natural-looking). If you’re a BB cream gal, this is probably going to make you go ga-ga-goo-goo. Fingers crossed that one of the three shades works well for ya.
By the way, this stuff is heavily scented (like most of Guerlain’s products) and smells like the Meteorites highlighters. My nose detects notes of pear, lily-of-the-valley and those candy necklaces.
Baby girl, you’ll find Baby Glow right now for $54 at Guerlain counters, Sephora stores and online.
