My new make up love! Chanel Vitalumiere Foundation
I was getting a little bored of the foundations I have in my collection. That is partly down to my skin being so dry lately, and none of my foundations were really working for me. I heard that Chanel foundations work quite well with dry skin, and a couple of weeks ago I was passing a Chanel counter so I thought I would check it out.
I was recommended the Vitalumiere foundation, and I got the shade 10 Limpide which I believe is the lightest shade available, however it is a little darker than I would normally wear, but I got this purposefully so as I could wear in the Summer months when I will be tanned.
This foundation is extremely lightweight, as you can see from my swatch above it was running down my hand! Surprisingly the fluid texture works really well on me. The Vitalumiere foundation actually contains moisturiser so it really is perfect for my dry skin! It has a lovely satin finish which completely brightens up my complexion and I don't feel like I am wearing a mask of make up, it looks completely natural!
It has a wonderful scent! It smells so fresh and just reminds me of Summer! I am trying not to use this foundation too much so I can save it for the Summer months and my holidays, but it is hard! I'm just so impressed by this product and have used it non stop.
It cost £36 which is quite expensive for a foundation. Honestly though, it is a seriously good product and as I've been suffering so much with dry skin lately, I have to admit that this foundation is the only one that has not emphasised it in the slightest. It works incredibly well and provides a fresh and radiant finish. I am completely in love with it!
