Today, I received La Prairie’s new make-up product for summer 2018: Skin Caviar Essence-in-Foundation. Encased in a cutting-edge application system, it is the first compact foundation infused with Caviar Water. It is available in eleven shades.

Even though I’ve been working as a beauty editor for many years, I must admit that it is extremely difficult to find a good foundation that looks natural, matches your skin tone and lasts for hours. Therefore, I’m looking forward to testing Skin Caviar Essence-in-Foundation in the next few days.

“The aura given out by a person is as much a part of them as their skin,” said renowned 20th-century portraitist Lucien Freud when discussing his artistic aspiration to capture the complexion of his subjects. A perfect, glowing complexion is, after all, the incarnation of timeless beauty, the picture of health and perfection, the very essence of youth. But the portrait of beauty is only as perfect as its canvas — there can be no perfect complexion without perfect skin. Therefore, I strongly advise that you see a dermatologist at least twice a year.

Driven by the very same aspiration as Freud to highlight the vivacity of a splendid complexion, La Prairie has combined caviar science and colour artistry in a new formulation that perfects and enhances the natural beauty of a woman’s skin.


Skin Caviar Essence-in-Foundation is infused with caviar water that captures the most delicate components of caviar in a pure, highly concentrated infusion. La Prairie’s Exclusive Cellular Complex uses cutting-edge biotechnological research to give new life and energy back to the cells. Blended together with soft-focus treated pigments conceived for colour artistry, they create a unique formulation to perfect without masking.

An SPF 25 provides a high level of sun protection, while PA+++ guards specifically against UVA, the rays that cause premature aging of the skin. The fluid is a hydrating emulsion that provides natural-looking complexion enhancement, smoothing and essential protection. The light-to-medium coverage of La Prairie’s new foundation offers a natural-looking finish.


Skin Caviar-in-Foundation (2 x 15 ml) will be available from 17 May 2018. Retail price: CHF 225
