Hi guys! Did you miss me?
I was sick, and I'm still not feeling 100% better, but I'm trying to post every day again. Summertime means bronzers, so get ready for a lot (a lot!) of bronzers in the upcoming days. Today I'm showing you one of the prettiest, the new La Mer bronzing powder!
La Mer's newest collection is called Soleil de la Mer and contains this bronzer and a brand-new after sun enhancer.
The packaging of the La Mer bronzing powder is so pretty. It's a beige/brown giant (!) compact with the La Mer logo in front. Very classy and much prettier than the regular La Mer skincare bottles.
The powder has a shell print, which is a little ode to the maritime roots of La Mer. There are 4 colors, two brown shades, a beige one and a more pinkish color. You can use these separately for a little blush and some highlight, but I prefer to use them all together, which gives a light bronzed color. A perfect color for fair skin types. If you want a darker color you can just swirl your brush more into the two brown colors. It's as easy as that. The pigmentation is fine, with a brush a bit subtle - but I like subtlety in bronzers.
A little word about a new La Mer serum. This has been out for a while, but I haven't seen too much written about it. It's quite expensive, yes okay very expensive, and that also made me very curious. The Genaissance de La Mer should set back the clock of your skin, it should reduce fine lines, pores and wrinkles and soften skin.
For me the reason why I haven't devoted a full article on this product is that I only got a sample to try, so I can't really tell much about the longterm effects of the product. But my first impression is really good. My skin looked radiant and if it wasn't so expensive I would replace my regular serum by this one. Because I was a bit sick, I didn't pay much attention to skincare for a while and my skin felt very dry and not hydrated at all. I still had a tiny bit of serum, so I used it and I was again happy with the results of this serum. (I always use the La Mer eye cream by the way, still my favorite!)

I'm very happy with this bronzer because of the light color, bronzers are often too orange or dark. This one is one of the lightest I own. It's comparable to Guerlain Joli Teint, but La Mer is a shade darker. It also smells really nice, which I always love in powders - any product really.
What do you think about this bronzer? What kind of bronzer do you prefer?
