I use the shade 110. I am NC 35 in MAC and it suits me perfectly. But since it is not a full coverage foundation you can go a shade up or down as well. I tried a couple of shades but what really made me choose this shade was actually the undertone of this particular color. So the two shades might be similar but the undertones would be different. So if you are buying it online, be careful of what undertone you pick.

My Experience with Gucci Lustrous Glow Foundation

I am heads over heels in love with Gucci Lustrous Glow Foundation. It is light coverage foundation. I’d say more on the sheerer lighter side.

  • I have worn this foundation during the day, evening and even for the party. I think it makes for such an amazing every day foundation where you don’t need anything looking heavy or over the top on your skin. That said I have even worn it for the party and have got pics clicked both with and without flash. I’d say that it photographs beautifully.
  • It feels ultra light on skin and as almost like ‘your skin but better‘ kind of a foundation. If you are literally staring at my face as well you wouldn’t be able to tell if I am really wearing the foundation or my skin is that good. 😀
  • The coverage is light so it makes a good pick for someone with pretty decent skin to start with. It covers up blemishes etc. almost 50% but you would still need a help of a concealer if you don’t want any flaw to show on your skin.
  • It builds up beautifully without getting cakey but still don’t expect it to be a full coverage foundation. It’s almost like a next best version of your tinted moisturiser. It reminds me a lot of Chanel Vitalumeire Aqua but Chanel one was a bit thicker and had more coverage than this.
  • This foundation is bit on the glowy side but not shiny. I would recommend it mostly for people with normal to dry skin and not to those with oily skin.
  • The consistency is sort of creamy thin. It spreads easily and evenly. I find it best to use with finger tips. But I have tried using it with a brush as well and it goes on evenly.
  • It stays on for good 6-7 hours on me without any primer. I feel the need to powder only may be during evening if I have worn it earlier during the day. I haven’t seen it fading so far but in summers I’d definitley would need a help of primer underneath for this foundation.
  • It comes in a pump bottle. Works beautifully.
  • It has SPF 25. pretty high for a foundation.
  • It is suitable for sensitive skin.
  • Comes in a gorgeous frosted glass bottle with black cap that has Gucci’s ‘G’ logo on it.
  • Availability is an issue. We travelled to so many places in Europe and it was only in Gucci’s Paris boutique that we found it.
  • Despite being a luxury foundation, I still feel this is a very expensive.

Overall, I absoooolutely love this foundation. I like it so much that I am finding it hard to pick something else these days for my makeup base. With powder and blush, it gives that lovely naturally flawless look to the skin. That said if you are looking for a foundation that would give you a lot of coverage or matte finish, I’d say give this a skip. Totally depends on what you prefer.
