La Prairie Cellular Radiance Cream Blush
I have tried so many powdered blush and was very much satisfied with them but this time I wanted to try a cream blush that could last longer and give me the natural flush of colour. I had two choices in my mind CLÉ DE PEAU BEAUTÉ Cream Blush or LA PRAIRIE Cellular Radiance Cream Blush, so I ended up buying LA PRAIRIE Cellular Radiance Cream Blush ($70 for 0.26 Oz/ 7.5 g) in Plum Glow. I am pretty much happy with my purchase because I got what I really wanted, long lasting sheer natural glow.
According to product description:
La Prairie brings glamor and radiance to cheek colour with Cellular Radiance Cream Blush. Its formula provides long-wearing, non-drying colour with a hint of opalescent shimmer while helping to soothe skin, fight free radicals and absorb excess oil without drying.
I find all the description true in my use of this luxury product for more than two weeks now. It’s a very good cream blush that applies and blends nicely, leaving a soft glow and transparent youthful flush look. Texture is silky, creamy to the touch and application is super easy, I would apply it with my fingertips and blend effortlessly with Les Pinceaux De Chanel Blush Brush. It definitely beats out any other blush for its sheerness, luminosity and ease of application.
Formula is pigmented but blends out really well, very light that I don’t feel it is on my skin, and not drying to the skin even in my opinion it would work better on dry skin other than any powder blush. It definitely stays long, good for about 4 to 5 hours, after that you need just a touch up if you want to for a refresh look.La Prairie does all the luxury with its packaging. It comes in the reflective silver mirrored compact with its own brushed-silver leatherette pouch (This is all that you need to carry in your purse).
Price tag for sure is hefty but this is what you have to pay for luxury brands like La Prairie. LA PRAIRIE Cellular Radiance Cream Blush costs $70 for 0.26 Oz/ 7.5g which obviously will last long and in that point of view it will be more cost effective.

La Prairie Cellular Lip Colour Effects
I have tried products from La Prairie skin care range, these days I am using La Prairie Cellular Hydrating Serum and Cellular 3-Minute Peel from their skin care and going to review soon. This cream blush and Lip Colour effects are my new picks from their makeup range.
La Prairie Cellular Lip Colour Effects ($40 for 0.25 Oz/ 7.5ml) can be defined as a lip colour combined with lip treatment.
From La Prairie:
Cellular Lip Colour Effects provides shimmering colour in a beautiful semi-gloss transparent glaze that leaves lips feeling conditioned and luscious.
La Prairie Cellular Lip Colour Effects is high quality lip gloss that makes my lips look soft and healthy. It is not sticky and overwhelming at all. Texture is creamy, smooth shimmery, not too much glossy on lips and glides smoothly. It stays for a while without any eating or drinking, gets wiped off after heavy meal but leaving my lips moist and nourished.
You can use it alone for a natural luminous effect or over lip color for a luxurious and glossy effect. (All looks swatched below)
It does not dehydrate or dry the lips, instead moisturize and condition my lips along with a slight plumping effect.
Again the packaging is up to the mark of this luxury brand. It comes in a beautiful cylindrical shaped shiny silver tube with twist up applicator. The cap has a decorative silver colored band. There is a good size window on both sides of tube which exhibits the shade and help to keep track on the quantity. La Prairie Cellular Lip Colour Effects comes with the sponge applicator which is perfect for smooth flawless application.
I have it in shade Maribou Glace which looks peachy inside the tube, but much lighter than it appear. The colour is sheer, gives a translucent finish and luminous soft baby pink shine to my lips.Below shown bare lips, swatched La Prairie Cellular Lip Colour Effects alone on lips, and over matte lipstick
