FOUNDATION SWATCHES – Light Foundations (High End)

Again, I’ve been bored, so I’ve decided to swatch some of the palest foundation shades you can find in stores in my country.

I have to say that I’m very disappointed with the choice of the really pale foundations. Out of 14 foundations I have swatched (and I have really picked the lightest shades), I could only pull off 5 shades.

The foundations are swatched in this order (click on th picture to enlarge it):

Top row (from left to right):

TOO FACED Amazing Face Oil Free Close-Up Coverage Foundation in Vanilla Cream (I’m tempted to get this foundation only because of the bottle)

LANCOME Teint Miracle in #010 Beige Porcelaine

LANCOME Teint Miracle in #01 Beige Albatre

SISLEY Phyto-Teint Eclat in #0 Porcelaine

ESTEE LAUDER Double Wear in #1W2 Linen

DIOR Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Make-Up in #010 Ivory

DIOR Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Creme-Gel Make-Up in #010 Ivory

BY TERRY Lumière Veloutée in #6 Beige Doré (you can see how the foundation darkens as it dries)

Bottom row (from left to right):

DIOR Capture Totale Foundation in #010 Ivory

YVES SAINT LAURENT Teint Resist in #1 Ivory

GUERLAIN Lingerie de Peau in #12 Rose Clair

GUERLAIN Parure Aqua in #02 Beige Clair (keep in mind that the shades in Parure Aqua are slightly lighter than the shades in other Guerlain foundations, with shades in Parure Gold being the darkest)

BY TERRY Lumière Veloutée in #5 Beige Tendre (you can see how much the foundation darkens as it dries)

BY TERRY Lumière Veloutée in #3 Beige Naturel

I hope this has been helpful :)

  1. thanks a lot for these swatches! :) I agree – most of the foundations that claim to have pale shades are not actually pale at all. I tried the Too Faced one recently and it was too dark for me. I knew it would be but still wanted to try it out…kind of a joke.

    would you say the Sisley foundation in Porcelain is for women w/yellow undertones? it doesn’ look like there is pink in it.

  2. Thank you SO MUCH for this! Now I know for sure that Lingerie de Peau in Rose Claire is not a match :)
