Guerlain L’Or Radiance Concentrate with Pure Gold is a complexion-perfecting primer infused with pure gold flakes. As described on the official website, Guerlain l’Or is an embellishing make-up base sprinkled with pure 24-carat gold flakes. Like the most luxurious jewelry pieces, the precious flakes were crafted into ultra-sparkling and ultra-reflective particles, then dispersed in a hydrating smoothing gel. The complexion is beautified. It glows with divine and unfailing radiance. Skin is smooth, supple and satiny, ready for perfect, enhanced and long-lasting make-up.
L’Or has a distinctive and delicate floral scent. The first peach note blended with an accord of vegetal notes is fresh and sparkling. The rose, raspberry and jasmine heart is enriched with a powdery base of balsamic, benzoin and white musk.
So here are my thoughts about Guerlain L’Or Radiance Concentrate with Pure Gold. Starting with the packaging, it is housed in a heavy glass bottle with a pump dispenser. The bottle and the cap both have the name Guerlain over them. If you look at the pictures and in person, you see the gold flakes in the bottle floating in the liquid product. The texture of the product is gel-like and feels very light when dispensed. I take one pump of the product on the fingers and then apply it straight to my face. The gold flakes dissolve while I apply it onto the skin. The product does not take much time to dry the skin due to its lightweight and the result is hydrated radiant skin. I apply this primer to my foundation or tinted moisturizer.
It has been a savior for my skin in this weather, the skin looks plump, no signs of my dehydrated skin and no breakouts or irritations for my acne prone combination skin. The foundation stays on well over this primer and never experienced the makeup rolling off. I have used it on the days when I am not wearing makeup, it gives a beautiful glow to the skin and makes the skin look hydrated, youthful, and radiant. It does not emphasize my pores or imperfections. I use it with my Guerlain Lingerie de Peau SPF20 Foundation which I reviewed here. I have used it with other foundations I have and it works very well with all of them.
