Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Skin Perfecting Make Up Review

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Skin Perfecting Make Up £32.00

I picked up this Chanel foundation on a whim a while back. If I remember rightly, I had an unsuccesful clothes shopping day (I know, hard to believe right?), so to ensure my trip wasn’t wasted, I walked in to Boots and approached the first counter in front of me which happen to be Chanel and left with this foundation in my hands.

Vitalumiere Aqua is is an ultra light and exceptionally delicate foundation that aims to leave the skin feeling fresh and energised. It contains a mineral sunscreen factor of 15 and is enriched with UVB sun filter.  Despite the fine fluid texture, the coverage of this is actually quite good and doesn’t look cakey at all. I use this with a light dusting of loose powder after application and my skin has a lovely, natural finish to it. It’s does exactly what it says on the tin, provides a light base and is extremely easy to blend. and the packaging is particularly handy, as it’s quite small and great for travelling. Also, the scent of the foundation is really fresh and it does stay on the skin for quite some time before fading. Overall, I’m pretty happy with my impulse buy and would recommend trying it if you’re looking for a light base which gives good coverage.

Have you tried Chanel foundations before?
