Blogmas Day - 14 - Chanel Vitalumére Aqua

My new favourite High End Foundation

I have to start this post by saying that I would like to retract a statement I made in one of my first ever blog posts - 'A dress for your face' I wrote: - 

'I bought this and I was expecting great things from all the reviews I had read but sadly this product really wasn't for me'. 

 I also went onto mention that because of the price I paid for it, I wasn't just going to throw it in the bin... I'm so glad I didn't.  

 Since, paying more attention to my skin care routine and finally beginning to have a clearer complexion again I decided to give Vitalumére a second chance and I'm actually delighted with it.  It is far lighter to wear during the day than my Double Wear that I would normally use, and I finally don't feel so 'caked' and because my acne is disappearing the Vitalumére is all I need for a subtle flawless look.  

I have found this foundation very build able and it has covered any sun damage or broken veins on my face.   My face looks fresh and it doesn't look like I'm wearing a lot of make up when it is on.  I can't afford to replace this all the time so I have been switching this weekly my Rimmel Wide Awake Foundation.  

The only con I'd say that:-

1 - I have with this is that I do feel that I need to touch my make up more often if I do not set it with powder from the onset. 

2 - I would probably opt for a heavier foundation i.e Double Wear if I were going on a night out for slightly heavier coverage - a more made up 'do'.  

Do you use this?  What do you think of this product?

  1. I've always wanted to try this foundation! Heard so many great reviews on it :)

    sophie -

    1. It took me a while to love it. So glad I do now though

  2. I really like this foundation, but it does clog my pores, which is why I now opt for the YSL touche eclat foundation :) I grew to really hate Double Wear, far far far too heavy and cakey for my liking, and hard to remove, it just doesn't feel like it's doing your skin any favours when you're wearing it... have you tried the YSL one?

    1. I haven't been happy with the double wear for some time now. Far too heavy. I haven't actually tried the YSL one. Might treat myself to it in April. :-)

  3. I think the admin of this web site is really working hard in support of his web site, for
    the reason that here every information is quality based information.

  4. Big hi from your newest follower.
    I was really interested how your opinion had changed about this after you had changed your skin care routine. Double wear will always be a firm fave for me because I love that I can go to work and leave it alone all day and still look ok!
    Lovely blog!

    Lots of Love Aimie. xx
