La Mer The Treatment Powder Foundation Review

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?

I know I'll be indulging in the full size shortly.

What do you think?

Anyone try La Mer The Treatment Powder Foundation?

Love it?

The powder looks good on you! I've only tried the loose powder which is incredible. The pressed one is not here yet. A really good powder foundation that I know of is RMK Powder Foundation EX. It has that creamy texture too and looks awesome on my dry skin

It seems great. It sounds like the product is similar to Benefit's Hello Flawless, right?
May I ask how do you apply this powder and the Benefit one (for example, with a kabuki brush, a wet sponge, etc.)? Thanks.

hey miss d!

Hello Flawless actually has much more converage!

I normally apply hello flawless with the sponge applicator for a heavier coverage or with a fluffy powder brush for lighter coverage.

This I applied with a sponge as it's a type powder that's very smooth and needs a sponge as it applies best that way!
