My First La Mer Purchase and Experience

Lifestyle, Skin Care and Make Up Reviews By October 10, 2017 Tags: , , , , , , , , , No Comments

I have to say that in the past three weeks, I have been accumulating skin care and make-up products in my quest for the best possible regimen and it all started with a news article that was in my Google news feed – What Every Guy Can Learn from Kim Kardashian West’s Skincare Routine. In this article, what caught me most was the emphasis on La Mer products.

I went on the La Mer Europe website and started browsing at the many products available from the brand. In the end, all I really, really wanted to buy was the La Mer Renewal Oil. It sounded very promising!

In the end, I walked out with the La Mer foundation, concealer, and bronzing powder instead. Before this, my entire make-up collection consisted of everything Sephora. I have been living make-up free since I moved to El Nido in 2013 so I didn’t know anything.

What I liked about my Douglas boutique experience was I got the exact shade of foundation and concealer that I would have gotten wrong had I bought them on the website. To be honest, I already had the foundation and powder in my cart on the website but actually testing for the right shade was probably the best thing that ever happened to me.
