So I will fess up now -I owna lot of foundations and every morning I relish deciding which one I am going to use. Recently I’ve found myself constantly reaching for Vitalumiere because it’s creamy, hydrating, blends like a dream, smells divine and gives my skin a real kick. It contains ingredients which specifically target tired and dry areas so it’s good for dry, very dry and mature skin. If you have oily or combination skin, forget it and move on to Perfection Lumiere. This foundation is not to be confused with Vitalumiere Aqua.
Because it’s super hydrating and moisturising – doesn’t emphasise flakiness or cling to dry patches – glides over and just makes everything look fresh and dewy. It also doesn’t make your skin look oily. You can even apply it without moisturising as it is has such a creamy formulation.
Coverage wise, I would say it’s light to medium and it also contains SPF 15 which doesn’t flashback. The Chanel foundation range is more suitable for yellow skin tones. Saying that, if you suffer from redness or pink pigmentation – the yellow pigments counteract and cover these areas very well. It comes in 8 shades and I wear B20.
I have been using Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation for the last 6 months and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE it. This is a liquid skin perfecting foundation which gives a semi-matte flawless finish without being cakey or visible to the naked eye. I am a big fan of Chanel makeup and their foundation range is one of the best I have come across. I really believe in spending a bit more and investing in a quality foundation as it’s the base of your makeup which you want to last all day.Staying power and longevity are a big thing for me as I don’t want my makeup sliding off my face as the day progresses. It is a high end foundation, but I believe you get what you pay for. I recently recommended the Chanel foundation range to 2 friends and they too have fallen in love with their purchases.
The consistency of Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua is light and watery because of its silicone and water formulation. It therefore needs a good shake before you use it. I would say that it’s a semi – matte finish as it gives my skin a glow without being as dewy as Chanel Vitalumiere. It contains SPF 15 and has a fresh floral scent.
Why I love Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation
I love this light liquid foundation because it gives me a flawless and natural finish. It perfects my skin in terms of blurring the appearance of my pores and it’s also very long lasting . I really like the light/medium coverage as well as the scent – it smells expensive! Most of all, I don’t feel like I’m wearing a mask because it is imperceivable to the eye. I wear shade B30.
Could it be for you?
I think this foundation would suit dry, normal and combination skin. It doesn’t cling to my dry patches around my chin and it doesn’t make my forehead look luminous or shiny. The finish is light/medium coverage so I wouldn’t recommend Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua if you prefer a fuller coverage foundation.
