La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence In Foundation

The La Prairie foundation dynasty continues with the launch of their latest Skin Caviar Essence-In-Foundation SPF 25 cushion foundation. This is the first compact foundation infused with Caviar Water offering complexion benefits while you conceal. La Prairie is known for their caviar science and skin benefits, marrying the two with their foundation is something we saw with their original Skin Caviar Concealer + Foundation SPF 15 — a product I still use. You pop the cap for the concealer and twist the bottle for the foundation, it’s an amazing two in one. 

The new Skin Caviar Essence-In-Foundation SPF 25 cushion is a win in formula but I’m not a fan of the packaging. Yes, it’s luxurious but for being marketed for travel I find it overly bulky.  The mirrored edge is wider than it needs to be and I somehow get makeup all over it so I’m wiping it down in between uses. Granted if you don’t travel a lot and just use it in your bathroom in the AM’s it will keep. I’m just always on the go — you can even see from the original foundation that I weather my products living from suitcase to suitcase. I do appreciate that it’s refillable though so you keep the base and pop in a replacement cushion when it’s used up.  The formula is great, it’s buildable for a light to medium coverage and I love that it’s infused with Caviar Water and has an SPF 25. I apply with a Beautyblender and then buff with the compact provided if I’m feeling fancy. It’s great for discoloration and evening out your skintone. I do prefer the original foundation for my wrinkles but the two products work well in tandem.

Choupette’s Diary: Five Things Week Deux

CA

 

(un) The highly anticipated Mademoiselle Privé exhibit at the Saatchi Gallery is coming to a close. With one week left, it’s your last chance to take a journey through the origins of CHANEL’s creations capturing the charismatic personality and irreverent spirit of Mademoiselle Mommy Chanel and Daddy Karl Lagerfeld.

(deux) While I’d never be caught dead wearing it out of the house the Thync system is my favorite beauty tech gadget. Depending on whether I want to catnap or to chase laser beams, it provides me either calm or energy vibes.

(trois) La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Cream Sheer is my miracle in a bottle for the fall weather. It is identical in effectiveness as their iconic Skin Caviar Luxe Cream, but in a sheer, satiny texture. Powered by a potent concentration of precious caviar extract and their exclusive Cellular Complex, Skin Caviar Luxe Cream Sheer lifts and firms as it recontours and redefines. Not that I need that extra lift quite yet…

(quatre) Have you heard of high energy healing? Neither had I until Yes and Yes seduced me with it!

(cinq) Yesterday was a sad day for the fashion industry when Raf Simons stepped down from Dior after three-and-a-half years. Hopefully that noncompete agreement won’t leave him twiddling his thumbs for a year.

La Prairie Expands Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Collection

La Prairie Cellular Swiss Eye Cream, EmulsionIt started with a dry oil and moisture-rich cream last February when La Prairie launched the first two products in their Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Collection. These much celebrated products offered a brilliant way to help skin protect itself from premature aging and the extremes we encounter on a daily bases from changing climate, pollution, stress and travel. Formulated with the Swiss Ice Crystal Complex of which it derives it’s namesake, this concoction began in the Swiss Alps with the discover of two alpine plants, Purple Saxifrage, and Soldanella Alpina and one algae, Swiss Snow Algae with extraordinary abilities to withstand the elements and thrive in the harshest settings on earth. Some science later La Prairie formulated a complex that embodies the strength of the survivor plants and transfers it to skin to help protect against premature aging.

5 Unexpected Travel Products to Have on Your Radar

Since the dawn of this year I feel like I’ve been on a plane or Amtrak every other week (likely because I have!). Here are some unexpected delights that I recently discovered that are now in my permanent travel kit.

PC Review: La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Sleep Mask

La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Sleep MaskFor the past month I’ve been indulging in the new La Prairies Skin Caviar Luxe Sleep Mask about twice a week or as my skin has needed some extra hydration. With fall here my skin tends to get more dry and lose some of it’s luster. Either that or the stress of a hectic schedule, too much coffee and not enough sleep play a strong role in my skin not getting all that it needs. Usually my evening routine consists of a makeup remover, face wash and serum as my staples (then depending the regimen I’m trying may expand out from there if needed). I’m usually hesitant to add in a moisturizer since I want my skin to have some time to breath but still want the benefits of giving it a hydrating booster. This mask is the best of both worlds.

The perfect holiday hair combo: Fekkai and Jennifer Behr!

IMG_4861‘Tis the season to glam up your tresses and Fekkai definitely taught me a thing or two about holiday hair! I recently visited the salon for what can only be described as a complete hair transformation. Fekkai teamed up with hair accessories designer Jennifer Behr for the evening and her collection makes for the perfect accent for any holiday look.

 With the cold months ahead one of the first battles when it comes to healthy hair is combating winter dryness. Fekkai recently launched their PrX Reparatives Collection, which is designed to transform dry unmanageable hair into soft silky hair with movement. The collection consists of the PrX Shampoo ($30-$49), PRX Conditioner ($30-$49), PrX Preparative Intensive Fortifying Mask ($49) and PrX Reparatives 3 Day Transformation ($100).IMG_4877

My fabulous Fekkai stylist, Hos Hounkpatin, used the shampoo and conditioner on my hair as well as Fekkai styling products and as embarrassing as it is

La Prairie Introduces Cellular Power Serum

La Prairie fans take note! Come September, the skincare brand is adding a new product to their highly efficacious Cellular Power skincare collection; welcoming their new Cellular Power Serum. This potent, plant-infused serum packs a triple threat against aging by working to defend, restore and energize skin, while loading up on antioxidants to prevent free radical damage. Think of it as the creme de la creme (or rather serum) of skincare bodyguards.

The inspiration for this product came from fans of their Cellular Power Charge Night, looking for a comprable day product that encompassed the benefits of their cellular power infusion. However, unlike most products in a collection they are not recommended to be used simultaneously (it’s like power overload) — plus both should
