La Prairie is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its Skin Caviar collection, and with it, the launch of the latest edition to the Skin Caviar Ritual: the Absolute Filler. The new product reverses the loss of volume in the face brought on by aging, returning the visage to a fuller shape. The Absolute Filler restores a look of harmony, an essential element in La Prairie’s quest to achieve timeless beauty.
With that theme in mind, Whitewall Presents asked two artists, who explore themes around beauty in their practice, to put Absolute Filler to the test. Chloe Wise and Adrienne Elise Tarver applied the skin-plumping product twice daily for a few weeks, and each noticed a visible change in fullness to the face. Here’s what they had to say.
“I am very deeply enamored with and spoiled by this product. My skin looks and feels wildly similar to that of a tiny baby, which is preferable. I’m probably never going to use another moisturizer in my life, now that I’ve tried this. Oops, I think I just officially became high maintenance… [shrugs],” —Chloe Wise
Chloe Wise (b. 1990) is a Canadian artist living and working in New York. Her painting, sculpture, and video unpack the construction of identity through the performance of consumption. Solo exhibitions of her work have been held at Almine Rech Gallery, Paris; Retrospective Gallery, New York; Division Gallery, Toronto and Montreal, and Galerie Sébastian Bertrand, Geneva.
“I’ve enjoyed the daily ritual of giving my skin the moisture it deserves. La Prairie Skin Caviar feels like bathing in the fountain of youth.” —Adrienne Elise Tarver
