Beauty Buzz: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation

Being in the blogging community, you come across some products that are raved about and some products that are really just disappointing and not worth the price tag.

Some of those amazing, holy grail products become known as “cult favorites”. The Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation is one of those products. I started blogging in 2010 and my YouTube channel in 2011 and have since only heard great things about it. It is described as follows- “The tiniest drop of this hybrid fluid creates a fresh, natural complexion. Skin looks refined and feels refreshed, creating an exquisite makeup experience. The fluid formula has a soft, water-light texture, and comes in 10 shades that match perfectly to skin’s undertones, whether pink orbeige. Dermatologist-tested. Non-comedogenic. Oil- free.”

You must, must shake up the bottle for about 30 seconds. As far as the formulation being soft & water-light, I can definitely testify to that. The liquid is so light, one can barely feel it on the skin. The blendability is unlike any other foundation I have ever tried. The liquid blends perfectly into your skin creating a perfect second layer to cover blemishes and imperfections while making your skin still look like your skin. This foundation is not cakey, whatsoever, and has the potential to be high-coverage.

My skin look luminous and dewy upon application, which I love. The one thing I would say is a con about this is that throughout the work day, my T-zone tends to get a bit shiny. But that is my skin; it’s combination skin and it is nothing a bit of translucent powder can’t fix.
