You already know how many problems I had to find the perfect foundation for my oily skin. I tried many, seriously many. In a previous post I said that I had found the perfect one, expensive but a truly love, That was Chanel Matlumiere foundation, however it was impossible to find my shade when I was in Chile. Then I read very good reviews about another one, Vitalumiere Aqua, and many girls said that it worked for oily skins...so I said, let´s try it!! and I did it...now...
I´m totally in love with this foundation...so to show you why, I made a complete review.
Firstly, I took a picture of my face without makeup (just with moisturizer and primer)
Then I put Vitalumiere Aqua (B40 beige-desert) on my face and took a picture again.
After that I finished the look and took a picture of the final look (before going Uni, that means around 11 am)
Finally I took a picture of my face when I arrived home (at 19:30 this evening).
So, I tested Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua for about 8 hours, without touch ups and in a rainy day (Melbourne today!).
These are the results:
|Left: Before (I just curled my lashes and put moisturizer on my face)|
Right: After (Just with Chanel Vitalumiere aqua)
Can you see? My face had redness and some imperfections. But after putting the foundation all these disappeared and my skin looked even and radiant!! It is incredibly how a water based foundation can improve your skin so easily!
|Left: my finish look this morning before Uni|
Right: My face after Uni this evening
- easy to blend
- dewy finish (not too matte, not too shiny)
- second skin feeling
- very light consistency
- good packaging (easy to work with and to transport)
- good coverage with little amount of product
I´m totally in love!!! I didn´t think I could get such a good result with just one product.
- expensive ($32000 chilean pesos; $77aud)
- few shades
Overall I think Chane Vitalumiere Aqua is worthwhile. I don´t feel guilty to spend my money in such an excellent product. The issue with the shade I think you have to try it, because after a while the foundation changes its color and it adapts to your skin color so that makes me think that the few shades can adapt to any skin color.
I used this for long days...because it is so expensive, for shorter journeys I use Bourjois Healthy mix serum foundation that I see as a dupe (the only problem is that it does last for no more than 3-4 hours, even using primer).
So if you haven´t tried this foundation, do it! it is AMAZING!!I hope this review would be helpful!
