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.

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!

I bought this La Prairie foundation because it is almost half the price of the Cellular Skin Caviar Foundation. Granted the Skin Caviar foundation does come with a full size concealer in the cap, and this does not.

I find this too have less radiance than the Caviar Foundation. The coverage is medium to full. The color choices are very limited. I have #200 and its a bit too dark for me. For reference I wear Caviar Foundation in Ivory or Creme Peach (both work), La Mer in Porcelain, BB in Ivory, Shiseido O20.

I would not re buy this product. I prefer the LaMer Porcelain, or Cellular Caviar Foundation because it gives a better glow and it's a better color match.

This is not such a good foundation. +: stays whole day long on the skin, good quality of pigments, convienent packeging,... That's about it. -: colors are wierd and not flattering, I would even pick out the word dull, not natural because of color and too extended coverage, makes me older, a bit sticky!
I went back to my beloved HR prodigy which I have ordered online. I've ordered immediately three bottles. I haved used it again since one week and realised again that HR can't be beaten. I've tested the new v-sculpor foundation and I also liked that. If you want natural beautiful skin which is radiant this LP is certainly not would you need!
