La Prairie Translucent Cellular Treatment Loose Powder

La Prairie Translucent Cellular Treatment Loose Powder ($80.00 for 2.20 oz.) is available in two shades, Translucent 1 and Translucent 2, both of which are loose powders designed to set makeup and mattify the skin. It is also supposed to add radiance to the skin. Worth noting is for the price, you get a large, full-size (2.0 oz.) along with a travel-sized version (0.20 oz.), both of which are refillable (though, I did not spy any refills available online, so it may be an in-store purchase only).

5 Great Coral Lipsticks

5 Great Coral Lipsticks

Reader Angela thought to be cruel to me by suggesting coral lipsticks–because picking a favorite coral is like picking your favorite child! I will say that the closest to all-time favorite coral would be Guerlain Gems, which was limited edition and no longer available, but the below five are all near and dear to my heart!  Want more corals?  Check out our swatch gallery of coral lipsticks.

La Prairie Cellular Lip Colour Effects

La Prairie Cellular Lip Colour Effects ($40.00 for 0.25 oz.) saw the release of two new shades–Breezy Coral and Pink Shell last year. Though both are limited edition, they seem to be readily available where La Prairie is sold. La Prairie’s gloss contains their Cellular Complex, plus Vitamin C and Aloe Vera, while giving lips a slight plumping effect along with moisture.

La Prairie Midnight Blues Collection for Fall 2010

La Prairie Midnight Blues Collection for Fall 2010

From morning to midnight, La Prairie has your colour needs covered, with sensual shades for the eyes, cheeks and lips that conjure visions of Paris nightlife, off the beaten path cabarets and all that jazz. It’s about understated sexiness, in the form of berry and plum lips, warm cheeks and a sultry, smoky eye in unexpected colour combinations of blues and violets.

Says noted New York City makeup artist, founder of Cheek to Chic makeup consultancy and La Prairie Colour Ambassador Raychel Wade, “Fall is a time when women reach for rich makeup colours, and “Midnight Blues” delivers just that! Using deep blues and cool pinks is a great way to accentuate and enhance your natural look, and this colour palette provides endless possibilities to create just the right amount of drama, so people notice you and not just your makeup!”

“Our customers crave a bit of sensuality in colour, along with science in skincare, so we work tirelessly to deliver both. Our “Midnight Blues” collection weaves together a beautiful story of sultry nights that is sure to strike a chord with women,” says La Prairie President Lynne Florio.

The Summer Season: La Prairie Rose Bronze Lipstick

La Prairie Rose Bronze Lipstick ($55.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a beautiful, rosy red color base with shimmering gold and copper strewn through it with a slight sheen. It reminds me of MAC Thrills Lipstick when worn lightly (particularly over more pigmented lips!), which has the same rosy base but more copper-metallic flash. I like La Prairie’s lipsticks for the way the de-emphasize lip lines (takes about 10-15 minutes of wearing them to see the full effect–the swatch photo is of lipstick that’s been on only 1-2 minutes!) with rich color, and shades that I never quite can dupe. I also love that they wear very, very well–I get around five to six hours of solid wear.
