I guess some of you have seen this coming. I will be raving about La Mer La Poudre in this entry.
I think this is something everyone should invest in. As I mentioned in my haul entry, the cost of this product works out to the same as MUFE loose powder, or MUFE HD powder. It is just that we can't imagine plonking $100+ on a powder... but I really lurve the effect this product gives... it makes my face really set, and flawless, without feeling heavy or looking like I have a ton of products, even though I used a rather full coverage cream foundation.
I have tried using the product using the silky powder puff that comes with the tub, and also using a Shu Uemura 17 brush. Both works fine... because I think that the MUFE loose powder works better for me if I use the powder puff instead of a brush... and for the MUFE HD powder, I prefer to use a kabuki brush fo best results.
Even though this powder is translucent, it does help to even out further your skin tone (esp the 02 creme tone I got. The 01 which is colorless is a little too shimmery) and making your face look really smooth.
I have been taking pictures each time I use the powder. It may be premature to say this is my HG powder, after all, I have only gotten this less than 1 week. I know the hefty price tag may be very off putting, but for me, I don't mind splurging on face products (foundations, powder etc) as they are the products that come in direct contact with your face, and you want to use good quality products to prevent side effects. This may be controversial, but I think the price tag is usually directly related to the quality - IMO.
Let's get on with the pictures, and I will continue raving along the way. I have to say that the pictures aren't going to be any much different from my usual LOTDs...but in real life, really can tell the difference. Trust me on this. :)
The following is my fave LOTD lately, I sweep MAC Patina e/s all over the lids, and Satin Taupe or Style Snob on the crease. I also tried using different foundations to go along, and the end results is the same... a very light, smooth, flawless finish. Me likey.
And if you need to touch up, or have oily skin like me, just blot the T-zone and you are done! I don't need to touch up further. Well, normally, I don't anyway.. blotting away the shine is enough, cos patting on more powder can get too cakey.
That's all... and if you have any specific questions, leave them in the comments.
Heading out to watch Avatar again.... hehe.
P/S: Needless to say, nobody, especially not La Mer, paid me to rave about this product. All opinions expressed here are entirely my own and honest.
Thanks for reading!!
