Raise your hand if you use foundation? Foundation is a staple for most of us; a make-up bag must-have. These days foundation formulas are so advanced that they not only provide complexion-perfecting coverage, they deliver a side of skincare benefits too! Here’s a quick guide to some of our favourite luxury skincare infused foundations and their unique ingredients.
Inspired by the brilliance of diamonds, Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Fluid Foundation Matte SPF20 PA+++ is a 24-hour long-wear medium coverage foundation designed to enhance skin with a youthful veil of illumination. Infused with a potent blend of Skin-Empowering Illuminator, this foundation not only deals with how skin looks above the surface but also what is happening below the surface. Skin is empowered to emanate an alluring ‘lit from within’ glow as moisture is locked in for all-day hydration.
Skin-Empowering Illuminator is a powerful complex of carefully selected ingredients that activates skin’s ability to repair and defend itself, and unlock the radiance within. It includes Platinum golden silk extract, Japanese pearl shell extract, and Theanine to deal with external skin stressors. While Perilla extract encourages skin resilience, and Angelica Acutiloba extract boosts cellular energy. You can also find it in the Key Radiance Care Collection. A 3-step skincare system that awakens, nurtures and boosts skin intelligence, helping it grow more radiant day by day.
Get the Look of La Mer – healthy, luminous, and youthful skin. They have combined their iconic Miracle Broth™ benefits with healthy-looking colour to reveal flawless and nourished skin. The Soft Fluid Long Wear Foundation SPF20 provides long-lasting buildable day-to-night coverage that is sweat and humidity-proof (ideal for Hong Kong). The newly launched velvety-soft finish of Soft Moisture Powder Foundation SPF30 expertly blurs imperfections. Finally, the Luminous Lifting Cushion Foundation SPF20 offers a fresh and radiant finish in a handy compact for easy on-the-go touch-ups.
Miracle Broth™ is a powerful elixir inspired by the self-regenerating properties of giant sea kelp. Through the process of fermentation, their potent activity was unlocked, and a cell-renewing formula was created. That formula is Miracle Broth™. Use the new Concentrate and Moisturising Soft Cream to deeply hydrate, comfort, and restore skin health. Alternatively, indulge your skin in a La Mer favourite, The Renewal Oil. Flood skin with hydration to nourish, soften, and reveal an instant glow.
