The next time you find yourself in Paris, you might be leaving the country with a lighter load, thanks to La Roche-Posay. The French skin-care brand is bringing its fan-favorite cosmetics range, La Roche-Posay Cosmetics, stateside—which, if you'll stick with this hypothetical, means you now have little reason to get caught up in the customs' line with a jam-packed carry-on filled the brim with fancy French pharmacy finds. Thankfully, you can get them all here, in the U.S., with little to no effort—just a few clicks to your virtual cart.
The La Roche-Posay Cosmetics range for the U.S. features five makeup bag staples: foundation, concealer, mascara, waterproof mascara, and makeup remover. But what sets these products apart from traditional drugstore buys is that all five of the formulas were created with the most sensitive skin (and eye!) types in mind. Meaning, each product is made without pigments (yes, really) that can unfortunately cause unwarranted allergic reactions.
Breaking down each product in the line, there's the Toleriane Teint Mousse ($30), which is a matte foundation that shields skin from shine, but also smooths over pores and inflammation caused by pesky breakouts. But if you really want to cover up a zit, there's the Toleriane Teint Correcting Pen ($25), a concealer that helps cover pimples and dark, puffy under-eye circles after a late night out. It comes in three shades: a light, medium, and yellow-y hue.
As for the eyes, the range features two mascara options: a lengthening formula and a volumizing waterproof option. Just like other lengthening mascaras on the market, the Respectissime Extension Mascara ($25) claims to make lashes look thicker—from root to end—while separating them, creating the illusion of added length. And the Respectissime Waterproof Mascara ($25), which we can already seen being worn by our office's resident gym rats, claims to curve lashes, while "amplifing lash density." Basically, you can expect thicker-looking lashes without the smudge factor. Then, at the end of the day, you can take it all off using the fragrance-free Respectissime Makeup Remover ($20), which, yes, is formulated to remove the most stubborn of waterproof makeup.
The La Roche-Posay Cosmetics range is available now on amazon.com for $20 to $30.
