Chanel Vitalumiere: The Review

Chanel is a brand that I really lust over... obviously I am in love with their bags but also their cosmetics!  I think its mainly the packaging I enjoy so much it just looks so chic and expensive!!  So on my recent trip to Paris I decided to splash out on a little cosmetic pleasure and Vitalumiere foundation was one of my splurges

To say I have heard a lot about this foundation would be an understatement! It has pretty much been tried and tested by every beauty blogger, and has had very mixed feedback.  I decided to take the plunge despite some of the negative reviews and picked the shade beige which pretty much matched my current foundation colour

I have been using Vitalumiere for just over a week now and I am completely addicted!  On my first try of this I was really shocked at how oily and runny it felt, I was convinced my entire face would melt off within hours of applying!  However, I came home after a long and exhausting day sight seeing and my make-up was pretty much the same as when I put it on!  It does give you a very dewy look but I really love that, I control it by using a little translucent powder over the top which also helps to set the foundation and I believe prolong staying power

The foundation also has pretty good coverage whilst not looking too "made up" and a little really does go a long way so I can see this lasting me a while.
Vitalumiere also contains SPF - BUT the kind that does not give you a super white ghost face in photos!

I would avoid this at all costs if you have oily skin, I just can't see it settling on your face due to its dewiness. Also if you are prone to breakouts as again the oiliness may not agree with your skin type

This retails for £33 per 30ml bottle here which is on the expensive end of the scale for foundations but for me it is worth paying for and I will definitely be repurchasing

What has your experience been with Chanel's Vitalumiere?  Whats your favourite foundation brand?
