The packaging of the cream is in the iconic cobalt blue jar packaged in a silver jar. The richly colored glass vessel topped with a polished silver cap evoke precision and purity. This design became an immediate classic when it was launched and has been preserved as a homage to the heritage of Skin Caviar Collection. To ensure the purity of the cream is maintained, a sleek spatula is included to wipe a small amount onto the fingertips.  The cream has the signature caviar fragrance and a rich texture that glides on the skin smoothly, leaving it feeling exceptionally soft.

I am so obsessed with this eye gel, there is no irritation, no fragrance, and no residue. My eye area looks lighter and tighter, I feel it is getting more and tighter with each passing day.

When it comes to trying and testing a new foundation, they make me the most excited. With every new foundation, there is new hope of looking for the best version of yourself, that flawless natural canvas that will make you feel beautiful inside out. I am a long time fan of the La Prairie Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation SPF 15 reviewed here which I was so sure and still so positive as one of the best foundation I have tried. It is still my go-to for the special occasions. This spring 2018, La Prairie launches its first ever liquid compact foundation called La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-In-Foundation.

La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-In-Foundation

‘Skin Caviar Essence-in-Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 25 Sunscreen (CAD $255) is the first compact foundation infused with Caviar Water for complexion perfection. A fluid emulsion encapsulated in a cutting-edge application system, it is the art of foundation – as only La Prairie can conceive it. With perfectly matched shades, Skin Caviar Essence-in-Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 25 Sunscreen is the perfect light-coverage foundation on its own or an ingenious on-the-go complement to Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation Sunscreen SPF 15.’

La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-In-Foundation

The packaging of the Skin Caviar Essence-In-Foundation is portable, spill-proof liquid compact foundation designed to achieve complexion perfection. The color-true formula provides long-lasting wear, natural-looking, semi-matte finish. The foundation is infused with caviar water to support skin firmness and hydration. SPF 25 in the foundation protects skin from both UVA and UVB rays. The packaging is air-sealed state of the art packaging with a compact with a refill. Skin Caviar Essence-In-Foundation is available in 8 shades and is a great foundation to be your partner while on the go.

I am so much impressed with this foundation that it is a hard time choosing between Skin Caviar Essence-In-Foundation and Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation SPF 15. The texture of the foundation is smooth and creamy, the coverage is light to medium and very easily buildable. The foundation blends into the skin seamlessly. The finish is very natural, semi-matte which for me is perfect for a natural glowy face. The staying power is great, stays on well for whole day and the best thing is the compact is portable and can be used to re-touch anywhere. The foundation is hydrating and does not emphasize my dry areas or the problem areas. I have not seen any breakouts or irritation from this new launch. Another good thing is the foundation comes with a refill inside the box, so just to mention again there are two refills in total, one already in the compact and one more inside the packaging. The shade I have swatched is the Satin Nude N-30 which is a medium deep-neutral for my medium skin tone on the golden side.

La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-In-Foundation

I am a fan of the natural look and finish where I do look like a better version of me and not another person, as you might have seen my Instagram feed and Instagram stories, I prefer natural finish and glow is always my thing. This foundation, for me, passes all the requirements I have from a great foundation and I am really looking forward to more trips and travel with this compact apart from my regular use. To use this, I press the cushion and then tap few dots on the face and blend with either my fingers or a brush but usually my fingers as I do not want to waste even a little of this amazing product. Otherwise, if you are comfortable you can use the puff that comes with it.

I highly recommend you to check Skin Caviar Essence-In-Foundation. La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-In-Foundation is available at Holt Renfrew, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, in Canada. It is available at La Prairie official website, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks, if you are in the USA.

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.

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.

La Prairie Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation SPF 15 is available at Holt Renfrew, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Nordstrom.
