CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation

Hey Guys!

So, everyone and their mother has raved about this foundation and at the time of it's launch, the blogosphere went crazy for Chanel's new offering. I recently picked this up as I needed a foundation for my graduation, so here are my two cents on the Vitalumiere Aqua.

Upon recommendation from Anna, I chose this foundation as I wanted a light coverage yet long-lasting formula. I am absolutely delighted with the results this product gives, and it lasted all night without budging. As my first proper experience of wearing foundation (I'm such a newbie, I had to borrow my sister's foundation brush!) I am thoroughly impressed and I even wore the foundation to a recent blogger event, which I will tell you all about soon.

So, here's what you need to know.

Packaging: Well, it is Chanel so it obviously looks very chic. The bottle is much smaller than I had expected (30ml) , so is perfect to bring on-the-go and for traveling.

Shade: I am in the shade B30, but I may have to go darker for during the summer.

Formula: A light, buildable coverage foundation which glides over the skin. It has a quite liquid-y consistency, thanks to the water-based formula and make sure you shake the bottle well as if you don't, you'll get a tinted watery mess! The foundation has quite a strong floral smell, something I think is lovely, but could put some people off. The product did not cling to any dry patches, which I was a bit worried about because of some reviews I had read.

Lasting Power: The product lasted from about 4.30pm to 3am (!) when set with a powder, and at the end of the night, it looked just as flawless as when I had first applied it. I didn't do any touch-ups during the night, which to be honest, I am quite proud of!

How I Apply It: I squeeze a bit of foundation onto the back of my hand and then I use a classic foundation brush to apply the product as I find to goes on much more evenly than when using fingers. The little leaflet that comes with the foundation recommends using fingers to apply, but I have to say, using a brush suits me better. I may just have to invest in my own foundation brush!

So there you have it. My thoughts on the fabulous Vitalumiere Aqua from Chanel. I hope you found this review helpful, and let me know what you think of the VA!

I am doing my Leaving Cert next week (starting on Wednesday!), so I won't be posting for the next two weeks, but after the 13th of June, I'll be posting like a mad woman!

xoxo, Emma
