The Latest from La Mer: The Treatment Powder Foundation.

I used to love powder foundations, which some considered odd given the fact that I have very dry skin. For some reason, the finish was always pretty much flawless on me. As I get older, I am finding fewer powder foundations that look even somewhat decent on my skin. When I heard that La Mer was introducing a Powder Foundation to their skincolor line up, my ears perked up. The Treatment Powder Foundation has been just what I have been searching for.

Gemstones capture light energy to create a translucent color palette, optically erasing imperfections to reveal a naturally flawless complexion.  An exclusive Radiant Ferment works continuously to add visible clarity and brightness, revealing a more luminous appearance.

For a sheer, everyday makeup look, I have been applying the powder with the velvety sponge that came with the compact. When opting for more coverage and a full-on glam look, I have been applying the powder over my La Mer Fluid Foundation. The result is flawless.

The Treatment Powder Foundation also has a naturally built in SPF of 15, which is essential, and is yet another reason to not balk at the price tag of $95. It s La Mer, after all.

There is a pretty nice range of shades, 8 to be specific, to select from as well. I have been using Ivory, and will probably move up to the Creme shade during the summer to use over my self-tanner.
