chanel vitalumière aqua

   

Tried out my new foundation by myself today, yesterday I had it put on by the MUA at the Chanel counter so all the products she used on me were different to my own, meaning the look might be a different when recreated at home! I'm totally pleased with it though, it's so silky feeling and light compared to Estee Lauder Double Wear Light that I'd been using before. I've not edited these photos at all, in case anyone thinks so, because I want to show the 'real' finish on my skin!

   

I'm wearing it as I would normally - I have MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural over the top, with some blush, and concealer just under my eyes and a little around the nose. I've tried to take some of the photos scarily quite close, it's more matte than it would be with just the foundation obviously, but I still think it looks pretty natural. It feels like I'm wearing hardly anything! I guess it helps that it's a thinner constancy than what I was using before as it can go further but still provide decent coverage to even out and perfect the skin without looking cakey - perfect for me!

You have to shake the bottle quite a bit but it tells you that on the packaging anyway. Also it's not cheap at £32, but you can always use your Beauty Club card for points towards future purchases. Those are my only bad things to say about this really, although it is a new love affair so only time will tell if we drift apart or not! I am going to try it out without using powder, cream blush/bronzer is the way forward considering the cold weather (hopefully) on its way out soon!

OH and one more thing, you can't see my top all that well but it's the black version of the one I have on in this post. Not sure if I like it as much as the white though, so I may be selling it! Keep your eyes peeled for stuff on my shop page, I'm too lazy to take photos of everything right now..

  3. Your skin is so gorgeous! It does look like the foundation is a lovely consistency but how pale do the shades go? I am always the lightest shade (porcelain or ivory) and some foundations just don't suit me!

  20. lovely! - would be great to know the lasting power for you if you get a sec?

    I tried vita lumiere for the first time today - it stayed on allll day, but the glow got a little bit too much towards the end of the day...

    really liked the wee sample of this that I tried from glamour magazine, but sample sachets are always so hard to work with.
