WANT IT: La Mer The Radiant Concealer

La+Mer+The+Radiant+Concealer

Ok, so yes I do have an obsession with quality concealer. I’ve tried so many concealers over the course of the year it’s grown from a simple obsession to a rather sick, twisted NEED to try something new. I’m always on the hunt for thee perfect concealer, the concealer that will change my life, the concealer that will end my woes of dark circles and puffy eyes forever.

Could that concealer be the new La Mer The Radiant Concealer?

At $65 this has to be the concealer that will create flawless coverage under my eyes, erase my dark circles, conceal my puffy eyes, erase my fine lines….yes…this one has to be it.

Available in three shades the treatment cream concealer optically corrects dark circles and blemishes to create a flawless finish. It instantly evens out the skin appearance while adding radiance. Gemstones capture light energy to camouflage dark circles and precious marine plant extracts help to reduce the appearance of under eye puffiness by the way it also has an SPF 25.

I’m not worthy La Mer.

I need this in my life, like now, like yesterday.

Expect some sort of review soon as I can’t control the need to snag me some of this. My excitement knows no bounds.

Available now from La Mer.

La Mer The Treatment Powder Foundation Review

La+Mer+The+Treatment+Powder+Foundation+44

The Muse had to second guess the idea of shelling out $95 USD for a foundation powder when she seen the new La Mer The Treatment Powder Foundation.

But now that I see how flawless my skin is looking I’m a believer.

Jump ahead for the review.

What it promises:

Lightweight coverage in a powder foundation that can go on sheer, medium, or heavy. Contains gemstones that capture light energy to create a translucent color palette, optically erasing imperfections to reveal a flawless completion. Ferment works to add visible clarity and brightness to skin, revealing a more luminous appearance.

What that means for you:

Simply put La Mer The Treatment Powder Foundation works much like a transparent white powder to blur fine lines and minor imperfections to create flawless coverage.

I tested out a good size sample of the powder and I must say I am quite impressed. The powder isn’t quite like anything I’ve tried before. The formula is an interesting texture that’s cooling, light, and slightly creamy (I know a powder that’s creamy, sounds weird). I realize the idea of a creamy powder could be a contradiction but the powder does have a slightly strange formula that’s super smooth and blends beautifully, feeling much like a cream would. I was worried about trying it out on my dry skin but it leaves behind beautiful coverage no flakes, no settling on my face like a mask, simply gorgeous coverage. The powder also contains SPF 15 for extra coverage in the sun.

$95 may seem alot to shell out for one powder however the quality of the item more than makes up for the price. It’s ability to offer sheer to full coverage makes it a perfect foundation item for Summer when the idea of liquid foundation makes us cringe.

Simply put the powder is truly a luxurious item that manages to conceal and create the illusion of perfect skin. Who doesn’t want just that?

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!

La+Mer+The+Powder1

La+Mer+The+Powder2

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.

La+Mer+The+Powder6

La+Mer+The+Powder7

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.

La+Mer+The+Powder4

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.

La+Mer+The+Powder5

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!

Tried La Mer The Powder?

Love it?

Holiday 2008: La Mer Gifts of Beauty

Ok, you know all that hype about how La Mer is food from the Gods above (only Blue Bunny Bunny Tracks Ice Cream is comparable as far as the Muse is concerned) ….

The Muse says it’s true.

Yes, it’s expensive but honestly well worth your money. I’ve tried various samples of La Mer and honestly it’s no wonder J-Lo fills her bathtub with it and bathes in it. If the Muse had her money she’d do the same thing!

If you’re looking for a super luxurious gift this Holiday Season or wanting to finally take the plunge and find out if the hype that surrounds La Mer is all true you can indulge in some of the super luxe gifts that La Mer has on offer!

I honestly can’t begin to afford some of these amazing gift sets but it doesn’t hurt my lemmings none the less! A girl can dream and drool! However, I do have my eye on two of the gift sets and considering that I’ve been thinking about taking the plunge into skincare nirvana recently I might as well go with a gift set which includes a few items instead of a single one item!

The Signature Collection $240 USD
The+Signature+Collection

Includes:
Creme de La Mer 1oz
La Mer The Lifting Face Serum 15ml
La Mer The Eye Concentrate 5ml

I do have my eye on this one as it includes almost everything I want. Taking into consideration that La Mer Eye Concentrate is $165 USD and Cream de La Mer is $130 USD you can see how this actually works out to a value in the long run! This little guy is exclusive to Bloomingdale’s for a very exclusive time so if you wants it better head on out and grab it before it’s gone!

The Luxury Essentials $630 USD
The+Luxury+Essentials+002

Includes:
Cream de la Mer
La Mer The Lifting Face Serum
La Mer The Eye Concentrate

Eep! I personally can’t afford it but I’d be all over this like white on rice if I won the lotto! The items are housed in a pearlized hat box.

Dear Santa,

Please grace the Muse’s Christmas with a La Mer Luxury Essential Gift Set! I’ve been good all year! Honest!

xoxo
the Muse

The La Mer Luxury Essentials Gift Set is available at Bergdorf and Neimans.

The Creme de La Creme $1,390 USD

I’ll take my jar of Creme de la Mer super size please!

supersize me 1

Phew, that’s 16.5oz of cream! How many of these do you think I’d need to fill up my bath tub?

If you have some spare change hanging around you can get the La Mer Creme de La Creme Gift Set at Bergdorf, Neimans, and Saks! Tell ‘em the Muse sent you!

The Luxe Keepsake Box $1,200 USD
LINLEY2008 3

If you’re dishing out for La Mer you might as well have a super posh box to stash it away in! The Luxe Keepsake Box was designed by David Linley a British furniture designer. Each set is numbered and limited edition. If I ever got my hands on one I’d ruin it by drooling all over it! This is obviously one for the beauty vault! I better go buy more lotto tickets!

This one is available exclusively from Bergdorf and www.lamer.com

The Connoisseur Collection $395 USD
The+Connoisseur+Collection

Here’s another one I seriously have my eye on!

Includes:
Creme de La Mer
La Mer The Eye Concentrate

The Connoisseur Collection comes housed in a pearlized leather box! I think I may indulge in this one, the temptation is to great to resist!

If you’re wanting this collection it’s available exclusively at Saks.

Well, I guess we better start getting our jumbo pencils and paper out and start our lists to Santa…I know mine has increased by a few items after seeing these gift sets!
