This is rather fancy! If you want your foundation to work as hard as your skincare, and budget isn’t an issue, then this little beauty may interest you. Here’s the low down on the brand new La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence in Foundation. I have swatches and before and after photos for you to check out.
Now I have road tested this on a couple of full days and it really lasts. I found I didn’t really need to touch up, and looking in the mirror in the evenings after busy days was a nice surprise because my base had stayed looking pretty much the same – even in the heat.

It delivers a soft matte finish but there’s still plenty of radiance. Although I am loving more of a glossy skin look at the moment (see my routine here), this finish is perfect for long days when you need to know your makeup will not budge, and you can layer on all the glow you need on top.
Also, I love the skincare element in this formula. In fact, it’s as much skincare as it is makeup, and it also has a good broad spectrum SPF in there to protect from UVA and UVB.

Before & After
It’s absolutely brilliant on enlarged pores and fine lines, and the finish makes skin look really balanced and in harmony. The compact is great for touch ups during the day, but as I said earlier, I didn’t actually find I needed to do that. It’s a neat, clean system with a click dispenser that keeps everything free from bacteria and super fresh.
It’s all good news, although the one catch, as you’ll probably be expecting from La Prairie is the price. It is £148 and this includes a refill (15ml) and a blue pouch to carry it in. Pricey but gorgeous!
