La Mer The Powder Review
What was it that kid from Jerry Mcquire was so fond of saying?
Did you know that a jar of La Mer The Powder weights as much as a human head? Well, maybe not but damn-yum it feels like it!
Talk about super luxurious! La Mer The Powder comes housed in a .88oz frosted glass jar that weights as much as that human head the kid was talking about. This must be what it feels like to be rich….I wish I was rich but at least I have La Mer The Powder to make me feel all wealthy, fabulous, and J-Lo like (I heard she slathers herself, head to toe, in La Mer cream!). I once dreamed I was fabulous but than I woke up. Darn it.
No seriously though the jar is super gorgeous and vanity worthy, count the Muse impressed. Needless to say what’s inside is just as lovely as what’s outside. It’s possibly the nicest and the most expensive powder the Muse owns at the moment. I’m not much of a powder user especially around this time of the year (dry skin and the likes) but La Mer could change my mind.
At $65 USD it doesn’t come cheap but the fact of the matter is it’s going to last you this lifetime and probably your next as it’s huge so in fact your $65 USD is an investment for your powder future. This is alot of product for the price so you can feel a little less guilty when indulging.
The powder is available in four shades and the one I’ve been using is the lightest shade Cream. It’s a lightweight, very finely milled, silky powder that helps my foundation last out a majority of the day and into the evening. I’ve been using mine for a while now and I can safely say it does wonders for keeping the evil oily forehead at bay during hot, humid days. The powder manages to give my skin an airbrushed, flawless look while giving my skin a fresh, awake finish. I honestly wouldn’t suggest it for using as a sole foundation as it’s a bit sheer but working as a finishing or setting powder it’s truly ideal.
The powder is developed with symmetrically shaped, uniquely coated particles that magnetically attract to the skin for a perfect fit…hey it’s not my words…go read it on the La Mer site. I have no idea what that means but hell it sounds important right? No seriously, it does have a rather wonderful way of conforming to the skin and blending in leaving behind that no makeup feeling while offering a beautiful sheen to the skin that can only be classified as flawless. I will say even on my dry skin the powder still manages to settle onto my face without caking, flaking, or just creating general drama which is always a plus as I do like to set my foundation occasionally with a good powder so it remains fresh all day.
All in all I think it’s a luxury item that’s affordable considering how long the product will last! The presentation of the product is gorgeous and the powder’s formula is equally as wonderful. This one the Muse suggests checking out for yourself it has the potential to for holy grail material membership!
