Meet The Foundation That Meets All Your Expectations—And More!

If we were to be asked what the most challenging things are about shopping for makeup, we would probably say that finding the right foundation is on top of the list. It surely is a daunting task to find a base that blends well with skin, covers imperfections, doesn't end up cakey, all while keeping skin moisturized and protected (read: does not cause breakouts!)



For all these reasons and more, we can't blame women who simply resort to not applying any foundation anymore, with the fear of looking too "done" for daily wear. After all, who has the time to head out to the mall to swatch countless products during such a busy time as this? We want our products to work hard for us, we want return-on-investment, we want to look pretty good when we wear them, and we want them quick!

Look no further than this line of products from trusted luxury skincare and makeup brand La Mer to solve all your foundation dilemmas. We know what you're thinking—why spend more for a product that you can totally buy for cheaper elsewhere? Here, we give you reasons why investing in quality 2-in-1 makeup and skincare is the smart woman's way to go.

Meet the La Mer Luminous Lifting Cushion Compact Foundation SPF20, your vanity table's newest best friend. The cushion foundation, as you know, is one of Asia's favorite beauty inventions in the last couple of years, and we still can't get enough. In La Mer's version, they created a serum foundation that provides a luminous, lifted look encased in a sleek, chic compact you'd want to whip out anywhere.

Apart from its pretty packaging, you get a bang for your buck as this product (along with the entire Skincolor de La Mer range) offers you both color and skincare benefits in one. Their products contain the legendary Miracle Broth all La Mer products are known for, which enables your skin to harness the healing powers of the sea. It is combined with what's called "The Lime Tea Concentrate", a supercharged antioxidant formula that revitalizes and protects skin from environmental aggressors. 

What's more, applying this product not only gives you the beautiful flawless finish, but allows your skin to experience its skincare factor long after you've taken it off. We call that a bonus! Think of it as the last step to your skincare routine, and the first step to your makeup, done in one easy step. According to Robin Shandler, La Mer's Vice President for Product Development, "In essence, the longer you wear the foundation, the better your skin will be." Now this is something you can't expect from other foundations out there. 

Lastly, this amazing beauty pick doesn't necessarily have to be applied for a "finished" or "done" look. It is one that can be applied for a full face of makeup, or in particular areas that need coverage. It can also be considered your midday pick-me-up for when it's time to touch up!



The La Mer Cushion Compact Foundation is available in 12 versatile shades, and is available at Rustan's The Beauty Source.
