After hearing so much in the US about this new collection, I was extremely happy to get a hold on this products and test them for you.
LA MER is known as one of the most luxurious brands in the world, therefore the prices are quite high. Are this products really worth your money? Some of them definitely are.
I have used LA MER before, but not their make-up line. I used the CRÈME DE LA MER, an Ultra-rich, dewy finish cream. It is simply one of the best creams on the market.
LA MER THE SOFT FLUID LONG WEAR FOUNDATION SPF 20
I don’t know about you but plain old foundation just won’t cut with me anymore. This is the biggest plus from this super luxury brand. La Mer understands what every single woman is looking for. To look gorgeous and ageless.
After trying this foundation extensively I can say that the 50 years old signature Creme de la Mer just got a pigmented counterpart in the form of a foundation. This foundation contains the brand patented Miracle Broth and delivers the same skin care benefits.
It has a beautiful finish that’s not dewey and not matte but a velvet finish. This foundation gives the skin a beautifully luminous finish. It feels almost as you are completely without makeup. You will be very natural looking flawlessness. The texture is super lightweight yet intensely hydrating and it instantly softens the look of lines and minimise the appearance of pores. It covers redness and evens out pigmentation.
It is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Do I need to say more gals? This is now one of my 2 Holy Grail foundations. It will never leave my collection.
This foundation comes with an impressive 18-shade range depending on your location. I think this is a very important aspect of this product as many people will be able to match to their skin tone. Great job LA MER!
I am very pale but my skin has a Rosé tone so I had to buy two foundations to find the perfect matching color for me during fall/ winter. I will use the darker color during spring/ summer. My colors are: 02 Ivory and 12 Natural.
Before you apply foundation you need to moisturise and prep your skin, specially if you are over 30 like me.
LA MER THE FOUNDATION BRUSH
This brush was specially developed for precise application along the facial contours, the chamfered brush allows an individual finish. It is a very luxurious, extremely soft and curved shape foundation brush that makes the application very easy.
LA MER says you must apply the foundation with sweeping movements for light opacity or dabbing movements for increased coverage. At my first try, I did not like the results simply because I did not use it properly.
This is a very expensive brush and I therefore expect only the best, so I tried again with sweeping movements in only one direction. I got excellent results. Perfect skin. Surprisingly, I got an airbrush result when I dabbed my foundation with this brush.
If you have money to splurge, I’d say run and buy it now. But there are other brushes which will not cost you that much and will give you as well amazing results.
LA MER THE CONCEALER
Enriched with La Mer’s cell-ripping Miracle Broth.
I have been struggling to find a concealer that works wonders, specially to my under eye area. I came to the conclusion that for me, I need to use different concealers to address different problems in my complexion.
So I tried the La Mer Concealer and I am completely and utterly in love. This is the best product I have ever purchased. No questions about it. It does not cake, does not crease and it lasts 10 hours when I bake. Most importantly it does not fill in my lines.
The crystalline formula is designed to blend perfectly with the skin for a smooth complexion all day long. At the same time, the Concealer provides the eye part with cell-regenerating moisture, rejuvenating ingredients and antioxidants. Perfect for on the go, anytime, anywhere. It has already a home on my bag.
LA MER POWDER
This powder does not need introductions. It looks incredibly skin like and it does create a beautiful natural yet flawless finish.
I can honestly say I have way too many different setting powders in my make up room right now. They all seemed to work in the beginning but over time they became obsolete. I have normal/ dry skin and sometimes I can get oily in my t-zone during summer time.
This powder has an amazing stay power. It’s finely milled that the powder almost blurs your imperfections.
But I have to say that I was a little disappointed that the new formulation is more expensive and contains less product.
Worth the hype? Yes but with this new product size I won’t be repurchasing it.
LA MER THE POWDER BRUSH
This brush is the ultimate brush for an airbrush , flawless finish. I think it is the magic brush. The Ferrari of all brushes, one of the best beauty product investments I’ve made.
But if this is not on your budget, there are great powder brushes out there. I would rather invest my money in a La Mer foundation if I could not afford anything else.
