chanel pro lumière

   

Got this the other day after the lovely Becky raved about it. I'd wanted to try it for a while and decided to just take the plunge and hand over an obscene amount of money for a little bottle of liquid. I just prefer the idea of a pricier product on my face as it feels better quality (probably my inner snob talking, but still!). According to a few sources it's being discontinued, yet I asked the MUA and she said it definitely isn't?! It would be a shame if it was anyway. I really like the finish, it's not as dewy as I thought it would be, though I expect that may be due to the current state of my skin. It doesn't look too bad, but it feels so thirsty all the time. I've been blaming the recent temperamental weather and trying to hydrate it with oil mixed into my moisturiser at night.


Obvz no edit! Check out my eyebrow hairs! wearing MAC Pink Friday lipstick FYI!

Here's what it looks like on me. I only used a light dusting of Benefit Georgia over the top rather than my MAC MSF Natural since I don't want to add more coverage for swatch purposes! I'm wearing Topshop Neon Rose blush and using a little bronzer from the Sleek Face Contour Kit. I'm going to go ahead regardless of that and recommend this if you have drier skin as it provides good coverage yet doesn't feel too cakey considering. A very welcome addition to my makeup bag!

  1. I'm waiting to splash out on one of the Chanel foundations as I've only heard really good things about them, but I can't decide which would be best for my skin.

  3. I wish my skin and lashes were even a tenth as nice as yours. I agree, I think that when it comes to foundations by reputable companies, the product is of much nicer quality. I've been trying to find a drugstore alternative to the Estee Lauder foundation I use and so far, there's really no comparison!

  4. it looks lovely on. totally agree with you about putting more expensive things on your face.. i pretty much avoid cheap skincare and foundation now. also, you pull off pink friday really well! on everyone else i've seen it looks a bit extreme

  6. Great review (I love all of yours anyway). It sounds like it is for me, but I'm pretty scared to even look at the price (eeek!). I totally get the inner snob thing - e.g. when I'm wearing MAC lipstick I just feel BETTER! ;) X


    P.S. Don’t forget about my giveaway!

  11. Looks like it gives a really lovely coverage! (Although your skin always looks nice and clear in your posts!)

    I might take the plunge and treat myself to a designer foundation this payday, I've only ever tried lipsticks myself but you can definitely tell the difference in quality!

  17. I've got this one. Its so amazing and so worth the money. I got my first bottle at Christmas time and it lasted me all the way until May pretty much using it every day, so you get your money out of it. The coverage is just perfect, not too heavy and not too light. But sadly, yes, they are discontinuing it :(

  22. It looks amazing on you! Unfortunately this foundation didn't work so great on me.. Felt it was a little heavy and i didn't find that it stayed put for long.. But I'm enjoying my chanel vitalumiere aqua at the moment =)
