La prairie Skin Caviar Essence-in-Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 25 Sunscreen – a review

Not long ago I got this deluxe la prairie foundation sample from Conde Nast’s Try It program. La prairie is a luxury brand of skincare carried at upscale stores like Neiman Marcus and Saks.

TheĀ La prairie Skin Caviar Essence-in-Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 25 Sunscreen is the latest addition to the line. This light coverage fluid compact foundation has SPF built-in and provides buildable coverage. I was a little afraid to try it and my fears were realized when I saw how good it is. It glides on like butter, giving your face an airbrushed look. It’s a little damp to the touch so I layered it with a finishing powder. It lasted all day and was easy to remove. It comes in a range of 10 shades from ivory to tan.

Now the bad. The only real negative is the price- $195. A refill is included which make it more like $100, but still a pricier foundation. If you want to splurge on a really nice foundation for a wedding or special event, this would be it! Go to laprairie.com for stores.
