The Review: Chanel Vitalumiere Foundation


So as hinted yesterday today's blog is about my new all time favourite foundation. Chanel Vitalumière!! Oh. Wow. I decided to buy this foundation last Thursday in Selfridges on a trip into London for my 21st. Birthday treat- that's my excuse...

I've given it a week trial so I can check it against my skin for wearability etc.. And I LOVE it. It is so light, and hydrating- like it is supposed to be! When I remove it at night I literally feel like my skin has had a treatment. It leaves my skin so soft which is really unusual! I generally struggle to find foundations that I'm 100% happy with and always mix and match but after using this foundation it honestly (unfortunately for my bank account) is going to have to be one of those make up essentials you cannot live without.

I wouldn't say this foundation has a great range of colours for different skintones, so it definitly is important to have a colour swatched on in the shop just incase it comes out a little too dark or light for your skintone.. although you should do this everytime you purchase a new foundation, even if it is something you buy religiously, your skin tone can vary depending on the time of year.

Things I LOVE about this foundation-

-long lasting
-duey finish
-soft to touch
-gorgeous glass bottle
-great for all skin types (oily people may want a translucent powder blotted in, if you don't already)
-blends great with powder blush AND creme blush
-can be applied with a buffing or stipling brush for more coverage
-blended with fingers for a natural look
-generally light- medium coverage
-perfect summer foundation
