I recently received this mini sample of Chanel Vitalumiere Satin Fluid Foundation , as a foundation junkie, of course I was happy to try out new foundation esp the one from Chanel.
The vitalumiere range base make up from Chanel has received a lot of good reviews from the beauty community, but as I usually don't have good luck with Chanel make up, I didn't have much expectation for this one.
I can't say a lot about the packaging since I only got the mini sample, but the full size comes in a typical high end foundation bottle. Glass, heavy and well made with pump spender. The sample comes in a tiny little tube which I prefer than sachet.
I got the shade #03 which matched my complexion though it is a tad too yellow for my preference. But it doesn't appear yellow once applied. The texture is very light and watery. It blended easily though I got the feeling that it clogs my pores a little bit. The foundation has light coverage, but it is enough to cover minor imperfections. It feels lightweight on the skin and comfortable. I like the subtle scent as well.
My blemishes and rednesses are still visible so concealer is needed. It provides dewy -radiant finish which I believe will suit people with dry skin better as it tends to get oily after 3 hours on my skin. I actually quite liked this foundation and had nothing bad to say about it beside the expensive price tag, but after trying it for 3 days, it broke me out! T.T
My skin is not super sensitive so it doesn't break out easily.. But this foundation broke me out after 3 days so I was not impressed.
If this foundation didn't break me out I don't think I would purchase the full size either mainly because it is not groundbreaking enough for the €40++ price tag. I expect a foundation that is so expensive to have a wow effect but this one doesn't. It is a decent foundation but you can also find similar quality in the drugstore.
So once again, Chanel failed to impress me.
Have you tried any foundation from Chanel?
