La Mer 'The Powder'

This product had been on my wishlist for a while now and I'm so glad I finally got my hands on it. I got it as a birthday present last month and have used it quite a bit since.

It's encased in a huge luxurious tub and I believe you get about 25 grams of product, which is a lot! It's probably going to last me for a long time. So the $65 price tag is definitely well worth it. 
I've never really tried any skin products from La Mer because my skin is so dang sensitive so I rarely try skincare products for that reason. But makeup from one of the most luxurious skincare brands in the market? Yes please!

There are four different shades for 'The Powder'. Even though it is a translucent powder I do think the difference in your undertone can make a difference in the effect, so I'm glad they offer various shades. I choose neutral because I had noticed that some of the shades were quite shimmery and so the sales associate said that neutral had no shimmer. But from looking at it much closer, it does contain a bit of very micro shimmers. Which is ok with me. 

This is Nordstroms description:
Incredibly lightweight, this luxurious loose powder gives skin the perfect finish. Air-spun seaborne particles—some of the lightest materials on earth—offer translucent coverage and an imperceptible finish that leaves skin looking flawless.
This product is soo super soft and luxurious and very finely milled. I adore using this as my setting powder. It applies beautifully on the skin and works wonderfully to set my makeup all day. 

I love to use my Chanel kabuki with this product. =)
I would say that there are probably other setting powders that are comparable and less expensive. But I'm an ultimate believer in you get what you pay for. That's probably why I gravitate towards more luxurious brands. 

Overall, not necessarily a must have but a great addition to any beauty collection.

  1. I guess $65 is not totally outrageous, especially since their skin care products are super expensive. Looks like a very nice luxe product to have :)
