La Mer has been known for their luxurious formulas, healing power, miracle broth, effectiveness, luminosity, and crafted with natural ingredients. La Mer’s journey began when Dr. Max Huber suffered burns in an experiment gone awry and set out to create his own destiny. He hoped to unlock the healing power of the sea he held so dear. Inspired by the oceanic world, Huber fermented nutrient-rich sea kelp with other natural ingredients. 12 years and 6,000 experiments later, Crème de la Mer was born – and Huber’s skin visibly restored. I have been using The Soft Fluid Long Wear Foundation SPF20 and The Concealer from Skincolor de la mer since last few weeks and have been impressed by the products.
La Mer The Soft Fluid Long Wear Foundation SPF20
The Soft Fluid Long Wear Foundation SPF20 is described as a weightless foundation with luxurious long-wear texture. The Soft Fluid Long Wear Foundation SPF 20 seamlessly blends soft color, healing hydration, and Miracle Broth. Pores look refined. Imperfections virtually disappear. SPF and antioxidants help protect a newly flawless complexion. New color capsule technology helps color stay true – even in humidity.
The foundation has a beautiful texture, creamy and very easy to blend. It seamlessly blends into the skin like a second skin. The pigmentation is good enough to give medium to full coverage. It smoothens out the pores and evens out the skin. After using it regularly, I do feel it benefits my skin like my skin is radiant, hydrated, and healthy. It does not accentuate my dry area on the combination skin. The staying power is really good, it stays flawless for over 8 to 10 hours as experienced by me. I do want to mention that the foundation does have fragrance, it does smell like the formulation or the SPF, definitely not like the separate fragrance added to products. The good thing is it does not linger around for long, fades away pretty quickly. The SPF is an added plus as I do tend to skip my sunscreen in winters when I am using this foundation. The foundation does not oxidize and stays true to the color all day. The packaging of the foundation is in the luxurious frosted heavyweight glass bottle with a pump. One and a half pump is enough to cover my face and to build upon the problem areas and evening out on the neck. The finish is satiny and looks very natural on the skin. It does not look cakey or rolls off during the day., It works great with or without primer and can be applied using fingers, brush, or beauty blender. This foundation is available in 15 shades.
La Mer The Concealer
The Concealer is described as an ultra-creamy concealer, with the potent miracle broth, that melts into the skin with a veil of weightless coverage, youth-boosting benefits, and antioxidants. Imperfections appear blended away as the skin is treated and looks transformed. This treatment-powered concealer hugs contours, for long-wearing, buildable coverage.
Upper – The Soft Fluid Long Wear Foundation SPF20 in Tan, Lower – The Concealer in Medium
The concealer is packaged in a stick shape and is very easy to apply, either straight from the bullet or with brush or finger. The texture is thick and creamy, blending does take effort. Being thick, the concealer does not feel heavy on the skin but it dries pretty quickly, so it needs to be blended fast. I have used it on my imperfections to cover up the spots and pigmentation. The concealer is available in 4 shades. It has very good coverage. It does not settle into the lines or problem areas. The finish is satin like and looks natural on the skin. It does not looks cakey or fades during the day, stays well all the day for over 8 hours.
Overall, I am really impressed by the foundation and concealer. I would highly recommend the foundation if you are looking for a naturally flawless luminous look that looks like a second skin, it is a must-have. La Mer The Soft Fluid Long Wear Foundation SPF20 and The Concealer are available at Sephora Canada, Nordstrom, and Net-A-Porter.
