For the past week I’ve been trying out a new foundation from Chanel that makes the perfect summer face. I’ts my first touch of Chanel foundation and if this one is anything to go by then, I’m sure I’ll love the whole range.
This one, Chanel VITALUMIÈRE AQUA is dubbed the “new-generation” texture. On first application the formula is quite watery, but you’ve got to shake it up, combining the water and oil to develop into the correct texture that is Vitalumiere Aqua. I applied it with my fingertips (not my brush as I usually do) and perfecto! It blends like a dream.
Here’s how the foundation looks after shaking it up and just swiping it on my hand.
Same light, here I’ve blended it using my fingertips only and it’s a perfect match. My colour is B40 – Beige Desert.
The formula is soft and very sensual with a luxurious delicate smell that really does feel like second skin. I got a lot of compliments wearing this foundation, people telling me how radiant and glowing my skin looked.
It lasts about 8-10 hours and would probably last longer if I didn’t have a bad habit of constantly touching my face all the time!
The nice thing about this foundation is that it evens out your skin tone but doesn’t hide your face – my subtle freckles on my nose were still visible, yet my skin looked flawless and pore-less!
The formula is packed with 15 SPF with UVB protection and because it’s a mineral forumulation, it protects the skin from sun rays. I give it 10 out of 10 for day wear foundation.
