No Foundation Foundation is the first advanced anti-aging translucent finishing product designed to allow the natural health and glow of skin to shine through, while providing non-chemical SPF 30 broad spectrum UV protection. Elegant in texture and quick absorbing, this product helps correct skin undertones, while boosting skin's moisture level throughout the day, providing a natural dewy finish. It's infused with high potency active ingredients that provide anti-aging benefits and help firm skin's appearance and diminish lines and wrinkles over time. It's also formulated with specially treated pigments, blended with light diffusing mica to instantly soften the look of lines, wrinkles and pores, helping the skin appear smooth and naturally radiant. Ideal for those adverse to applying heavy foundation and in need of sun protection!

Amanda K said...

I want to use Perricone's No Foundation Foundation because it contains SPF 30, gives natural coverage and doesn't contain parabens.

Those bustiers look HOT!

Kathy said...

Love bustiers! They are so feminine!

Make Do Style said...

Another fab theme - I love the fendi one ( the one with the grey trousers and cream chiffon underneath)

The Perricone sounds wonderful particularly with no parabens!

S.Elisabeth said...

Ah I love bustiers, they're surprisingly flattering!

pranksygang said...

love the pic with Lara and the boys :)

Erika said...

I have been coveting the Jenni Kayne bustier for months, but now I want the Viktor & Rolf, ADAM, and Rachel Roy pieces. The femininity they convey is divine! :)

Darrah said...

I would love to find a bustier that doesn't look like it should stay in the bedroom. I think if I found the right one, I'd wear it under a boyfriend blazer and jeans paired with a chunky necklace :)

Madeleine said...

I like the Jenni Kayne bustier the best, very pretty with pants or skirt.


I need Perricone's No Foundation Foundation, it is just what i am looking for, I can't stand foundation, maybe it is my freckles, but it always looks as if I am wearing something to cover my face.
I'd love to win it and try it.

Thank-you for this giveaway Carrie

BARGAIN BEX said...

Not only do I want the Marc Jacobs item, but may I also please have the Rachel Roy? Thanks, Carrie ... my little "fashion fairy!" :)

As for the No Foundation ... I need it simply because I am not fond of foundation since I am so pale, I'm almost clear. Ha. No shade EVER matches my skin and it's super costly to try and buy more than one to blend, blend, blend.

I would love to be able to buy this product and even rave about it and its amazing-ness through my own personal review. A win-win, no?

Thanks again for the INCREDIBLE bustiers ...

~BB

Intrinsically Florrie said...

That Viktor and Rolf is so pretty!
I love the D&G butstier and Dolce and Gabbana dress!
The D&G collection is deffinitely one of my aw09 favourites.

Sher said...

I love the look of bustier over a white button down.

I need no foundation foundation to even out my skin tone. Why, cause I'm a bad girl and am always in the sun. :(

Couture Cookie said...

I want that Jenni Kayne bustier so badly!

I would love to try the Perricone foundation too... my skin is very translucent and pale, so I need lots of SPF and a very natural coverage, otherwise I just end up looking cakey!

xoxox

Cindy said...

I'm all over the Fendi molded leather bustier. Yum!

I need No Foundation Foundation because I'm getting older and those teeny tiny little lines are just starting to appear. I want to nip those bad boys in the bud! ;)

[Unspeakable Thoughts Unspoken]* said...

Jaime said...

I really like the bustier dresses- so cute/fun!

As for why I need the no foundation foundation, i recently have experienced some breakouts due to the heat/humidity- so a new foundation would be lovely!

Margaux. said...

I really like this look!

HoneyBunny said...

Great post, dear! I love bustiers and the idea of wearing them as outwear:)

Chessa! said...

such amazing finds. I love all these layered looks. I'd love to win the foundation...I love how natural it is and of course SPF is a MUST!

pretty*pink*rat said...

Love bustiers! So sexy!

And that product sounds great, I hate wearing foundation, I feel so overdone. Plus I love the fact that it has SPF 30!

Helen said...

ooh i wish i was financial able to afford all these pieces!

Elizabeth Marie said...

So sexy and feminine! LOVE THEM ALL!

I hope you're having a good weekend CC! XO

Leah said...

Love all the images... made me think, I really need to add some bustiers in my wardrobe to emphasize my non-existent waistline. :-)

sisters in black frocks said...

this pale girl would love a little foundation with 30 SPF. sign me up!

Gabbi said...

Gorgeous bustiers dear CC! I'm especially fond on the layered look. Would love the Emanuel Ungaro. I also love your giveaway. It's great trying new products and at 35 I need all the help I can get. Also I live in California so sun protection is essential.

Wishing you a great new week!xo

thefatandskinnyonfashion said...

i love bustiers but i would be too afraid to wear one

Kristin said...

Bustiers. Mmmmm. Sexy to the max! I need that product because I'm like a toddler with my skincare regimen. Ah ha

sunchicka said...

Because I don't wear foundation, as part of my daily rountine

OliTa said...

Love them all ! The Richard Nicoll outfit is gorgeous .

E said...

Such incredible inspiration. I love the Ann Demeulemeester one the best!!

Bostonista said...

amazing give-a-way! Because I always either use too much or too little foundation and either way it never looks the way that I want it too-as if my skin is just fantastic without any makeup. Plus, I love that it was created by a doctor without the use of parabens with SPF 30!
xoxo

Porcelain Blonde said...

Hello Miss CC!

You always have THE best header pics! Your blog = beautiful eye candy and info.
Bustiers are sooo sexy when done well.

So I've returned to the blogosphere :) and I'm linking you now! Trust you've been well <3 xxx

Midtown Girl said...

I owned a bustier once but gave it away bc I never wore it...now I feel like getting it back!!

LOL XOXO

Carrie said...

This is such a hot trend for fall 2009. I want to get myself a bustier but I don't think I'm bold enough to wear it anywhere. Still, it's a hot look and I love seeing how others wear it. Fabulous post, Carrie.

trendkat said...

Fourth Bustier in is to DIE FOR!!! Love all the fantastic work and the lovely pin off to the side as an accent to it.

The Haute-Shopper said...

Ahh, this must have been so fun for you, given your love of bustiers and corsets ;-) Such a great post! I don't think there's a single item here I don't love. My favorites are probably the Ann D and Nina Ricci ones, because there's a slight edginess to them, but I'll take all of these, thank you...

Hope you had a lovely weekend!

Amelia said...

I love the first picture! It's hilarious. I would definitely only wear a bustier with a shirt or something underneath...

mom & son said...

hi cc!

i don't own any bustier yet and
i think it's time for me to grab one.
hmmm..but i don't think it will look good on me.

oh, i want that perricone! i've seen their ad in one of the fashion magazines. the first time i saw it on ad, i'm dreaming and wishing to own it soon. i hope my wish will be granted. cc, i badly needed that perricone, i believe it's an effective product and i'm sure it will make me beautiful.

gorgeous photos, btw!

yiqin; said...

Ah the bustier is so pretty.

Lizzie said...

I loooooove bustiers! And I think they look hot over a tshirt as well!

Azn Glow said...

Wow, these photos are so lush! Love them and want them all...ugh.

Carol said...

That foundation sounds awesome! I think it would totally help out with my morning routine and maybe make me actually on time since I could skip a makeup step!

Terence Sambo said...

It's my bday today CC :o]

Shay said...

some great styling ideas here!

Style Redux said...

What a coincidence- I wore a black strapless lace bustier out the other night. It adds instant sex appeal!

PowerSweepstaking said...

instantly soften the look of lines, wrinkles and pores, helping the skin appear smooth and naturally radiant

yep, that's the wife of 25 years!
