Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation






I am so excited to be doing this review! After reading a hundred million reviews of this foundation and looking up tutorials using this foundation I finally took the plunge and bought this foundation at duty free, and I'm so glad I did!

For me, finding the right foundation is really hard, I can never find the right amount of coverage, or the right finish or the right colour, and often I buy a foundation that I love, but then I go off it. 

I picked up the colour B20 which is the palest shade for £34, the original RRP is £36. Very pricey!

I have fair skin and it is quite pale, this foundation suits me perfectly but the only thing with this shade range is I don't think it would suit someone who is super pale because even though this is the lightest shade the beige tone makes it not suitable for someone extremely pale, however when rubbed into the skin this does almost 'disappear', so I could be wrong, tell me in the comments if you have really pale skin and this works for you!

This foundation is just so indescribably perfect. It had medium coverage but it doesn't look at all cakey, my Mum even commented that it looked like I had no foundation on at all but that my skin looked really even in tone and fresh. This is quite a runny foundation and you have to make sure you shake the bottle well or it just comes out as water, this makes it extremely light looking on the skin.

Before reading any reviews I wasn't sure how well this would work on my skin because I have oily skin but this lasts great on my skin, although I do set it with a powder aswell. I think this would work for pretty much all skin types though, and it just glides on so smoothly.

For me, when powdered this lasts all day and doesn't oxidise or go cakey which is fantastic. It makes my skin look so healthy and fresh, and I will definitely be re purchasing this despite the hefty price tag!

After buying this my Mum bought herself one and she usually hates liquid foundation but she loves this one. The great thing is this foundation doesn't feel sticky and you can't tell you're wearing it.

Thanks for reading

Have you tried this foundation? What did you think of it?

    1. Aww that's a shame :( I wish they would make a lighter shade as I can't really wear this in winter as it is a tad dark for me and this is the lightest shade :( xx
