I am someone who is very into makeup.  Even as a little girl, I would go through my mother’s makeup drawer and turn my face into what I thought was a masterpiece (that’s debatable.) When I learned that Guinot was coming out with a foundation last year, my ears instantly perked up.

When I first tried Youth Time Foundation, I was initially impressed with the amount of pigmentation this product had.  With just a light application the coverage was pretty good, I was able to hide marks from blemishes fairly easily.  After having it on my skin for a while I started to notice the texture of my skin.  It left my skin feeling smooth, almost velvety.  This is not something I’ve found with other foundations on the market.  When the foundation was on, it gave my skin a perfect mix of a matte and dewy finish. There wasn’t any “shine” to my skin, but there was a definite glow about it.  Also I noticed when I started wearing it, I was receiving more compliments on how healthy I looked. When I apply my foundation, I find it easiest to do so with my fingers.  The texture and consistency of the actual foundation is very similar to a face cream.

Now that I’ve gone on about how great the foundation looks on the skin, let me explain why.  Youth Time contains Optical Fillers and Spherical Fillers of Hyaluronic Acid.  What this does is it literally fills in the grooves of wrinkles making the skin appear more plump.  This foundation also includes Vitamin E, Seaweed, and Green Tea extracts.  These ingredients are amazing because they are actually slowing down the aging process, by strengthening skin elasticity.


One negative is that this foundation is that it currently only has 3 colors. However I do find that the colors are fairly easy to blend and can suit a variety of light to medium complexions.

    Yeah- the cheap stuff doesn’t compare to the beettr makeup. The feel, the smell, the texture, the wear.. nearly all the department store is superior to the drugstore stuff. I find the department store makeup (Estee Lauder, Lancome, Mac, etc.) are pretty comparable- Especially since Estee Lauder now owns most of them! And I do buy drugstore sometimes- nail polish, lip gloss, cleanser. The big deal for me, though, is skincare- moisturizers, repair products, preventive care. I don’t buy the very very most expensive, but I do get the best I can afford. Makeup makes you look good for a couple of hours- good skincare makes you look good for always!

    Hello, what tone is your skin?? It look’s a little orange on your face, but it can be because the light. I order a no 2, myself, and I am afraid that it is to dark for my skin. My MAC color it is around NW 30-35. What’s yours??

      I tried No.3 which is pretty dark, but I was able to blend it in. In Mac I usually wear a NW 20-25. I hope that helps.
