To put it in perspective, a bottle of La Prairie Anti-Aging Hydra Tint SPF 20 Sheer Tinted Moisturizer costs about as much as Choupette Lagerfeld spends daily on gravy. A 1.4 fl. oz. bottle costs $100 (OMG!). That is a lot of gravy, yo.
With a price like that, one would expect something phenomenal, right? Nothing short of tinted moisturizing perfection?
La Prairie is a high-end skin care line with prices that hover around mucho and dinero, but by comparison to their $465 Cellular Radiance Emulsion SPF 30 Lotion and $300 Skin Caviar Luxe Souffle Body Cream, Hydra Tint seems almost affordable.
So, you know how I am almost never not looking for foundations and tinted moisturizers that look like real skin yet provide enough coverage to downplay the whole freckle situation and even out my skin tone? Well, this stuff does that.
It’s weird… Before I massage it in (I wear shade 30, which is one of four shades available and the one that most closely matches my skin), it doesn’t look anything close to my skin tone. It actually looks too pinkish red.
But after I work it in and give it a few minutes to settle, almost suddenly, it matches. My skin looks more even-toned and radiant. My pores appear smaller, and everything just looks, I dunno…more J. Lo with a fan and big hair.
This being summer, I have a slight tan and some additional reddish tones in my skin, but in winter, shade 30 might be a little too pinkish red for me. At that point, I may not be able to wear one of the other shades, either, as all of them seem to lean pinkish red.
