The same way a couture gown or fine jewellery watch takes pride of place in a woman’s wardrobe, La Prairie is a vanity table’s pièce de résistance.

The Swiss brand earned its name as one of the beauty world’s most luxurious and innovative brands as early as 1931, when it pioneered cellular anti-ageing treatments, and completely disrupted the industry with the debut of its Skin Caviar Dermo Beads in 1987. Super-indulgent, these gleaming golden beads burst with rare restorative powers from the nutrient-rich matrix of caviar—the result of a La Prairie expedition to the depths of the sea 29 years ago. Today, La Prairie’s caviar and Exclusive Cellular Complex-powered skincare remain noted and trusted by discerning women the world over.

But perfect skin is not where the La Prairie quest stops—it is also out to deliver all-round complexion perfection. Marrying its skincare prowess with an equally cutting-edge approach to makeup, it has launched the Skin Caviar Essence-in-Foundation SPF 25/PA+++. This is the first cushion compact infused with La Prairie’s caviar water (the first skincare product with this elixir is the Essence-in-Lotion, which sets the skin for the foundation).

A pure, crystal-clear active fluid derived through a perfected steam distillation process that captures the volatile caviar components, this caviar water is then blended with soft-focus treated pigments conceived for colour artistry. Precisely released through a gentle press of the net-diffusing system, the hydrating emulsion works to improve skin tone, firmness and elasticity, all while providing flawless, buildable light-to-medium coverage. All eight perfectly matched shades are housed in a sleek blue compact.

The result is a beautiful mien that radiates both from the inside and out, crafted in elegant fashion.

La Prairie is available at Metro Paragon, Robinsons Raffles City, Robinsons The Heeren, Takashimaya S.C. and Tangs at Tang Plaza
