I finally caved and bought Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation last week. Everyone was asking me had I used it and what I thought of it, I just couldn’t take the pressure anymore!
As I was investing in a high-end foundation I expected the service to be good. Sadly, it was distinctly lacking. The SA asked me “what shade are you?”. When I said I was unsure as its a new product, much humming and hawwing ensued. I got the feeling she couldn’t be bothered to apply it. When I insisted, I was made to stand at the counter in the wrong light while she patted in on my jawline. I was not asked to sit in the beautiful makeup area for customers. Very disappointing considering the price of the foundation.
Anyways on to the product!
I am really really impressed with this foundation. It looks and feels like your own skin once applied. Its so light, blends beautifully and actually sits on the skin, not in your pores or lines. As it’s water based, you really need to give the bottle a good shake before applying. It also looks amazing when layered.
That, and the fact that its expensive are the only downsides. Seriously.
Its easily one of the best foundations I have ever used.
