Chanel Vitalumière Aqua

Hey everyone,

Today I will review the first liquid foundation that has met my expectations: Chanel's Vitalumière Aqua. I bought it after I just had to find a replacement for the Diorskin Nude liquid foundation, which just didn't cut it for me (way too cakey). Since then I have been using it regularly and I love this product so much! It makes my skin look flawless. It is water based so it won't make your face look oily and what I like about it so much is that it lets your skin breathe. The product is best used for people with clear or almost clear skin as I don't think it will hide lots of acne or scars. But then you can always use a concealer.

This foundation creates a dewy look. But if you prefer a matte look then just use a loose powder, such as the Chanel one like me.
What I also like about the Chanel Vitalumière Aqua is that it comes in a wide variety of colors. I myself have a really light skin with a pink undertone, which can be annoying because most foundations are too yellow for me. Thankfully Chanel had the perfect color for me the nr. 12 Beige Rosé. :)
The product has a SPF of 15, which is good, but I use a SPF 50 sunblock anyway on my face so SPF in a foundation isn't really a must-have for me.

The packaging is quite nice and as you can see the bottle is somewhat similar to the Chanel UV Essentiel sunblock.

The bottle is quite small, only 30 ml, but it is very blendable so you only need a small amount every time and it lasts pretty much all day for me. No touchups :)

In conclusion, I am very happy with this product, definately worth the money, and I will definately repurchase. :)
