My skin has been simply flawless lately (now, if that’s not a boastful statement I don’t know what is!), and it is all thanks to the new La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-in-Foundation! For the first time, La Prairie has incorporated its very exclusive Caviar Water in a start-of-the-art delivery system to create a colour/skincare product to pamper and refine.
The slim round compact is dressed in the brand’s signature midnight blue and reflective silver cap. Inside, is an innovative net-diffusing system that dispenses the product only when pressed, ensuring the rest of the product remain sealed from light and air. It is so sleek and feels luxurious without compromising on portability and practicality.
La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-in-Foundation contains Caviar Water, a pure distillate that contains the most delicate and essential elements of caviar that provides skin with lifting and firming benefits. It is combined with the brand’s exclusive Cellular Complex to re-energize skin cells. A full list of ingredients may be found here. Blended with soft-focus pigments, the Skin Caviar Essence-in-Foundation is silky smooth, and lightweight on the skin. A single press on the net-diffusing system dispenses enough product for a light-medium coverage all across the face. I found it easy to build up the coverage to a full medium simply by patting more product over areas where it is needed.
When worn on its own, I found La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-in-Foundation to leave a glowy finish. Personally, I prefer to matte things down with a light dusting of powder, and I also wear an oil-control primer underneath on my t-zone to ensure my makeup lasts the day. Regardless, I still need to blot and touch up if am heading out after work.
In any case, I love the smooth, porcelain finish the Skin Caviar Essence-in-Foundation gives me. There is a brightening luminosity that makes me look more awake than I feel. More importantly, or perhaps I am hallucinating, my skin has been in much better condition than it has ever been! I don’t come home to fresh zits and clogged pores, which counts for a lot.
