There is a 2x magnifier mirror located on top of the cap, making it four items in one.
I have been using this foundation since last few days and every time I use it, it is a luxurious ritual I would say. From taking the product out, till applying and blending it into the skin, everything is so perfect. The texture of the product is very smooth, blends very easily and looks very natural. This is the most natural looking foundation that I have used, skin looks naturally beautiful and bright. It does have skincare benefits and help protects the skin from various age-related as well as environmental factors.
The concealer on the top of the foundation jar is very creamy and pigmented, it is very easy to apply with the accompanying brush, it blends easily and conceals the imperfections very well. When used under the eyes, it makes the area bright. The foundation is buildable and a small amount is needed to do the job. I have combination skin and I did not experience any irritation or breakouts with this. I have used it with my fingers, brush and beauty blender, the results are marvelous with all three. My skin tone is medium tan with yellow undertones and the shade “Golden Beige” suites perfectly with my tone.
Unblended – La Prairie Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation SPF 15
Blended La Prairie Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation SPF 15
I am so pressed by the formula and the finish, it is indeed one of the best foundation I have used. The staying power is great, I did no touchups whole day and it looked as if I just applied it, for almost 9 hours. I would highly recommend you to try this foundation. I do love the La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-in-lotion and La Prairie Skin Caviar Liquid Lift from the same Skin Caviar line which I reviewed here if you are interested to read.
