La Prairie Cellular Luxe Lip Enhancer

La Prairie is a superior skincare line from Switzerland that has been in business for over three decades – 35 years. They have a magnificent product named Cellular Luxe Lip Enhancer that retails for $50.00. It comes in an elegant silver lipstick tube and is totally neutral in color and is used prior to lipstick application.

In recent years, there has been A LOT of emphasis placed on the use of a face primer prior to foundation application which creates a smooth face while masking splotchiness of  the skin and preparing it for concealer and makeup. La Prairie Cellular Luxe Lip Enhancer delivers the same benefits – only for lips. It is my opinion that lips age along with the rest of our bodies and should be protected, primed and moisturized as well.

This product creates the perfect canvas for any color of lipstick without altering the color of the lipstick in any way. It is not too matte that it dries out your lips and not too moist that it makes your color “slide” off. I have used it many times alone with a nude lip liner and topped with a clear gloss to create a natural “day appropriate” look.

It also has conditioning properties that address those tiny lines that sometimes form around our mouths. It keeps lipliner and lipstick from feathering and maintains color so as to limit the number of times that lipstick has to be reapplied throughout the day.

This fantastic lip product may seem like an indulgence due to the cost; however, the tubes that I have purchased have lasted for an entire year which makes the investment well worth it. If you have neglected your lips consider pampering them with this product.
