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.
