Background: The primary reason prompting my trial assessment of the La Prairie Anti-Aging SPF 15 #100 makeup is that I used Sisley Transmat Beige Clair 0 makeup solely for over fifteen (15) plus years and unfortunately Sisley discontinued the makeup thereby resulting in my new superseding makeup quest for a suitable alternative makeup product. Unfortunately, the new superseding Sisley makeup doesn't coincide with/meet my makeup color requirements.Context: To be fair and balanced the temperature in San Diego, CA reached an unseasonably warm 97 degrees F yesterday with low relative humidity. Facetiously, while I don't plan on visiting Dhahran, Saudi Arabia again soon on the Red Sea where the temperatures can hover around 128 degrees F plus very high humidity especially during the summertime, e.g., and where every memorable haunting breathtaking breath makes one feel like a fire-breathing Chimaera, I do realistically believe that this relatively pricey makeup should hold-up better than it did during my trial assessment yesterday in San Diego. Why?Results: The La Prairie 100 makeup is too rich/too greasy during the day. The color of the makeup developed an unsatisfactory yellow cast as the day wore on. [It's my understanding, however, that some makeup firms sometimes do add yellow pigmentation to their products to tone-down/neutralize the red colors on the face and other exposed skin areas.] I was constantly touching-up and blotting my face too much despite the fact that I had originally set the makeup with a fine loose powder. Inexplicably and unacceptably the color of the makeup changed color from the top of my face versus the bottom of my face! I relish high end two-toned shoes, but I have an insuperable aversion to having a two-toned face! Really! I've only encountered this type of anomaly on one other occasion with another makeup in over a half-century of foundation use. In addition, there was a considerable amount of transference associated with the La Prairie makeup that was very disappointing especially considering the historically very fine overall reputation of all the La Prairie products.Bottom line: Some readers may erroneously feel that the foregoing is an unfair or overly-critical assessment. Conversely, I can assure everyone that during my fifteen (15) + years of use of the Sisley Transmat Beige Clair 0 makeup, e.g., at no time did it ever exhibit such unsatisfactory makeup/foundation characteristics/results.Jutta Hermine Hildegard Harden

I would like to begin this review by saying that I have tried most liquid foundation by La Prairie and purchased the following 3 over the years. Cellular Treatment Foundation Sation, Skin Caviar Foundation and the Anti-Aging Foundation SPF 15. I have to say this foundation is by far one of the worst foundation I have ever tried. I cannot stand the smell, the texture, the feel and the look when I'm waering this foundation. It has a weird consistency. Once applied, it feeld like you have "mud" on your face. It does not give any radiance as the Cellular Treatment or the Skin Caviar foundations do. It just sits on your skin, making it apparent that you are waering foundation. It's also quite heavy as far as the coverage is concerned, which in not necessarily a good thing. Another point I would like to mention is that it contains way too many harsh ingredients, such as Alcohol Denat. (pretty high on the list). The formula is not skin-friendly at all. The discontinued Cellular Treatment Satin foundation was by far superior to this in so many ways. It contained very few but excellent ingredients and made your skin looking absolutely fresh and radiant. I am seriously exasperated that La Prairie keeps discontinuing their classic products, such as their De-Agers Serums, including the C-Energy Serum. I find that the newer products do not contain the same ingredients as in the past. The White Caviar line for instance is a waste of money. The Eye serums contains way to much alcohol, which dried out my delicate eye area. Also it contains glitter that imparts the illusion of good skin, which I hate so much. Glitter should not be a part of skin care but rather make-up. I am so disappointed that I will only use their classic formulas (like the blue caviar line). I'm really fed up that almost ALL of my favorite products have been replaced by formulations that are not skin-friendly nor potent as they used to be. Most of their newer products are outragiously overprived for what they are. And no, I'm not saying this because I'm poor. Actually, I used to love La Prairie and bought a lot of products from them because they worked but not anymore. It makes me so sad that La Prairie obviously changed their philosophy. I have the feeling that the newer formulations/products are manufactured specifically for newly-rich people, predominantly from Russia (no offence), who will buy anything that's super-expensive, believing that this makes it ultra-exclusive and good for your skin BUT a look at their ingredients list will tell you, they are not. As I said, I used to love their classic formulas but I will not buy anything from their "latest" technologies anymore because they are full of crap for the most part.

This new foundation is very moisturizing but not too much. It makes my face dewy but I can still find the powedery look if close enough. I am not a foundation person but this one so far satisfies me. Not too expensive, I wish it could firm my skin as it claims.Shade 200 is a perfect fit for me. BA told me it's the lightest for yellow-undertone.

I am sorry I had to delete my previous review for this as it was getting too messy. Too many updates.After over a year of using this on and off I came to realize that it is the best foundation I have used over the years. Not a HG though!This liquid foundation comes in a pump bottle. It gives me a satin finish but after a while I look a little shiny.Coverage can be anywhere from sheer to medium. I love this mixed with my moisturizer. It comes out as the best tinted moisturizer. I use shade #700 which is darker and more orange than my skin but my facialist adviced me to mix it with the #100 which is the lightest shade and I get the prefect colour!!What I like about this foundation is that is looks natural on me and gives radiance.I have combination acne prone skin. ( acne only on chin) This does not break me out and it does hide well. I am a light olive with yellow undertones.I wear By Terry light expert in Vanilla light By Terry lumiere in Sunny beigeEstee Lauder maximum coverage in Med deepGA LSF in 5.5Laura Mercier silk creme in sand beigeGA face fabric in #3... I prefer it mixed with #4 for warmth.LP cellular powder in Sunlit beige.LP caviar in honey beige. The absolute best foundation but it breaks me me out!!Only gripe about this brand is the colour selection.

Finally found it. It's expensive but not as expensive as trying to FIND new foundations all of the time. This truly makes my skin look flawless. Flawless and less wrinkled. Another big plus is that they have added deeper colors for my tan skin and did a beautiful job! I highly recommend this foundation. The only problem is that now I want to try MORE La Prairie items! It only takes a squirt for my whole face, it reminds me of a lighter version of Chanel's Vitalumiere only better! $95 for 1 oz at Neimans.

This looked nice on my skin but I didn't like the way it felt. From the moment I put it on, my face felt tight. By the end of the day I was starting to itch. One look at the ingredients list explains why: huge amount of Alcohol! And they call this anti-aging.....huh!

As I am a huge fan of La Prairie caviar cream foundation I decieded to try out this one as it was half of the price. Ok, maybe it is ok foundation but after LP cream one it is JUST OK foundation. What I hated the most, it is very hard to blend, and it is VERY, VERY CAKEY! and it has this dry feeling even I have an oily skin. And the smell is just so chemical. Actually nothing good to say about this foundation. I would NOT recommend it!

I bought this on a whim just because I'm a foundation junkie and have MAJOR buyer's remorse. I have shade 200 which is not a good match for me but I take the blame for that. This stuff seems to separate and settle into my pores in addtion to turning my face into a greaseball. It also gives me a weird, muddy coverage. Nice. I really, really hate it. I have tried every method of application, Shu brush, beautyblender and hands and have the same results. In my opinion, save your bucks. You could probably do better with a drugstore brand.

I love this new foundation from La Prairie.The texture is rich and moisturizing and the finish natural and slightly dewy but still works great for my oily skin (have in mind that I hate the matte foundations with powdery finish)All the other foundations from La Prairie were terrible for me the liquids were too oily and the powder foundation too dry and powdery.But this one is great for me.Another thing that I like a lot about this new foundation is that has great coverage,which is very important for me,without feeling heavy or like mask on my face.The coverage is medium-full but still looks natural!Makes my skin look flawless and dewy and the most important for me doesn't set into lines and pores!!!!.The formula of this foundation is so rich and moisturizing that I can use it even on my eye area when I m in hurry and still doesn't set in lines !!!!During the cold winder my face isn't super oily,I can describe it more as combination and slightly oily,so for now this foundation works very good for me.I believe that when the hot summer days will come this foundation should be slightly oily for me.The staying power is very good,it's not water proof/resistant but still has great staying power.The promises that this foundation offers firmer,younger looking skin haven't been delivered at least on me.I took one lippie off because of the price.For me the price is very important because I use foundation daily and I think that It's "not good" to spend 90 euros every month just for a foundation. And also I don't like the shades very much (I m nc 25-30) and I found a good much(the shade 300 it's good for me but it's not the perfect much)

Firstly let me emphasise that I tried really hard to like this product..but my experience with this foundation was not so satisfying. My skin type is dehydrated/sensitive/oily t zone.The lady over the counter won me over with all the skin benefits of this foundation skin care fusion..plus it looked quite dewy on initial application at the counter on half my face :/After purchasing it..I tested it for a month..everyday. £79 at department stores house of fraser/selfridges/John Lewis Pros- -Nice dispensing bottle.looks luxe if your into the gimmicks-On application glides well..quite light and your face doesn't feel to heavy it's MATTE finish-Ok shade selection.-has not broken me out and suitable for sensitive skinCons--Price..a bit too far fetched..especially if you want great results-As mentioned before matte finish...but boy does accentuate all the nooks and crannies..I don't have wrinkles or fine lines...but they somehow developed upon this application..not cool-after it's matte finish wears off aprox 6hours you get a dewy look and a sticky feel-I promise I have noticed no skin benefits/changes on my skin-slides off after 6hours...so you would have to reapply after your mornings makeup if your going out in the eveningI'm one to spend a bob or two for the right product, but feel with this product given its price does no justice. In fact..the benefit wow oxygenating foundation £28 feels more luxe on the skin with the added dewyness later throughout the day. I'm not plugging benefit products nor am I their sales person I'm just a self confessed beauty junkie who has a medical background and a special interest in dermatology.Hope this has been helpful
