La Prairie Anti-Ageing Foundation

Hello again my dearies....

Well, well, well... it's been ages since the last time I have posted any beauty products and it's because of my hectic work and social schedules. I have not been 'big' on beauty shopping this year I must admit which probably have been the reason why I've not been able to update my blog. My monthly shopping has been more on my usual stuff such us Clinique moisturizers and beauty powders and pencils and since I've already been posting them numbers of times, I though I won't bother sharing them again.

Anyway, enough of lame excuses hahahahaha!

Have you already tried La Prairie products? What do you think of them? I once found myself in the counter and got tempted of buying one of their skin care regime but I've been strong enough to resist it! (Pats my shoulder). I'd say that La Prairie products looks very luxurious specially the packaging. However, the price is pretty steep for me specially that I'm saving for a much bigger project.

Anyway, I've seen their foundation on magazines being recommended by beauty columnists that I headed to the counter near me and grab a few samples to try. As I really liked the samples that were given to me that I went back to grab my first ever La Prairie foundie. Being a shopper like me who's eyes are always on freebies, I've also managed to leave the counter with a few samples *wink wink... nudge nudge...

Originally, I was planning to buy the one with caviar but I opted for the much cheaper option. (£117 for caviar and £60 for the one I've got). I think the one I've got suits my skin better (another lame excuse hahahaha!).





Gracie's verdict:
This foundie is great! Best result is achieved when applied using sponge. I've tried applying this using my fingers and foundation brush. I only need a pea size to cover my entire face and neck so although it is quite expensive, it does last well. It doesn't cake and finished with my ever reliable Clinique double powder, I enjoy a flawless look all day.

Thanks sis Thiamere! Just like me, lighter options might be best for you such as lotion instead of cream. xxx
