Chanel Vitalumier Aqua

Due to the extreme cost it's rare that I'll buy a Chanel product unless I have a specific wedding or event coming up that I need to use it for or I've tried it out and decided I can't live without it. The Vitalumier Aqua foundation falls into the second category and so I decided to treat myself and for a while I wondered if I'd done the wrong thing.

The first couple of times I used this it seemed almost too watery and not very perfecting at all. My red blotches seemed to glare through and I was quite disappointed. However, I persevered and with a good shake before use this foundation has become one of my absolute favourites.

Once you've shaken it you only need a small amount of this is an ultra-fine foundation to give great but light coverage with a lovely dewy finish. Easy to apply and working almost as a second skin, it perfects and evens the complexion with a lovely finish. I really recommend trying this if you want an everyday Chanel foundation but, as with all the higher-end brands, I recommend going to a Chanel counter and trying out before you buy. If I'm trying something out I will do my eye makeup as I want it for the day, go to the counter ask them to put the foundation on my (making sure I'm happy with the colour choice before it goes all over!) and then wear it for the rest of the day to make sure I'm really happy with it.

The packaging for this foundation is also different to a lot of the other Chanel foundations and although it's very plasticy I actually think it's a lot lighter, and therefore travel friendly, and the lid is more secure. For £32 I originally expected a little bit more on the packaging front but I'm away a lot at weekends so actually this suits me down to the ground, and I guess it is one of their cheaper foundations. Still slightly eye-watering, but then you are paying for that name.
