Who wouldn't want smooth, glowing skin under the eyes? While some common issues (like puffiness and dark circles) can be heredity, there are plenty of eye creams out there that help stimulate circulation and include collagen to alleviate these concerns. Here are three of our favorite luxury eye creams that are worth the splurge. Why not treat yourself to the best when it comes to attaining radiant skin? On Kirbie: Parker dress.
Zelana met with La Prairie's beauty expert to talk about the essentials to have on hand on your wedding day to prevent any last-minute beauty blunders. Watch our video to hear her tips on what you should have on the big day in case of emergency.
Recently, I learned a tip from La Prairie's Color Ambassador, Raychel Wade. It's so obvious, yet so incredibly true. She says:
When it comes to eye shadow quads, don't feel pressured to use all four colors in a quad at once. Sometimes eye makeup looks just a pretty with one simple hue.
Like I said before, it's obvious, yes. However, this got me to thinking about my own habits. For some reason or another, I feel pressure to use most — if not all — colors in my own multishadow palettes. I suppose I feel like they're all there for a reason, working in perfect harmony, you dig? What about you: do you work with all of the shades in your quads, or do just use one simple hue?
After chatting with La Prairie's color ambassador, Raychel Wade, I was impressed with her simple makeup tips. Earlier, I shared with you her advice on lip-color essentials for your purse and her foolproof way to wear a dark lip; today, it's all about her blush and concealer how-tos. They struck a chord with me, and I think they will with you, too. To check them out, keep reading.
La Prairie has long been known for its luxurious skincare line, with stars like Victoria Beckham and Katie Holmes counted amongst its large celebrity fan base. The brand has definitely established a cult following since its inception in 1978, but did you know that La Prairie has a line of makeup as well?
Raychel Wade, the brand's color ambassador and founder of cosmetic consulting firm Cheek to Chic, has offered up some very helpful ideas for all of us. More on her makeup advice later, but to find out my two favorite lip-color tips, just read more.
La Prairie Cellular Cream Platinum Rare cream has climate-activated hydration which adjusts to changing humidity levels and temperatures, continuously providing the perfect level of moisture. A product adjusts its level of liquidity should be a comforting thought to consumers in our current credit crisis.
Each Cellular Cream Platinum Rare is handcrafted in a package that combines the grace and power of ancient sacred geometry with space-age sleek minimalism. The accompanying applicator has been crafted using the chemical symbol for Platinum, which combines the Sun and the Moon, with a Swarovski® crystal to symbolize the capturing of light.
Given how much the price of actual platinum has dropped investing in a tub of La Prairie Cellular Cream Platinum Rare cream may be a better bet. After all, studies do show that an attractive face will get you farther in life.
A lot of us dabble with out-of-the-ordinary beauty products, and some of them even work. But there are some items that are so over-the-top, so unnecessary, that you have to wonder who buys them. So here are the 13 of the silliest beauty products, gadgets, and treatments you could possibly encounter. Take a peek!
During a stay at a Beverly Hills hotel, I decided to treat my severely broken-out skin to a facial. The spa at the hotel used La Prairie products and I was really impressed with how clean and tingly my face felt when I was finished. The facialist told me that if there was one product I should splurge on (this brand is quite pricey), it should be the La Prairie Cellular Purifying System Blemish Control Gel ($70).
I bought it and within a few days I could not believe how dramatically my face had calmed down and cleared up. From that day on, every time I've gotten a doozy of a zit, my La Prairie Blemish Gel has been my go-to product. While of course I have tried many less expensive spot treatments this one always seems to do the job for the really painful, disastrous, cystic kinds of pimples.
What makes it so awesome is that you can feel the gel stinging, almost burning your skin. It's made with such a high concentration of salicylic acid that you can only use it for a few days or it will make your skin peel. Don't make me feel like I am some sicko for enjoying this sensation—you know as well as I do that when you've got a blemish to blast, you're counting down the minutes until it's gone.
Unfortunately, six months ago, I went to replenish my stock and was told it had been discontinued. I have since been able to find more bottles on the online grey markets, but I'm definitely bugging out thinking that my supply is eventually going to get cut off. Do you have any other amazing zit creams you can recommend?
I think I may have found the smallest tube of $525 dollars. This La Prairie Cellular Radiance Concentrate Pure Gold Face Serum is flecked with 24 karat gold pieces. And you know the price of gold is up right? Regardless, this gold saturated serum illuminates and brightens skin immediately while reducing age spots, rapidly plumps lines and wrinkles within one hour and enhances natural collagen and elastin production. I'd like to know if it comes with a solid gold beauty guarantee!
