After a little hiatus and a wee holiday to the States I'm back again reviewing one of the many products I bought overseas (yaay).
Well I bought the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation from the beautiful Saks 5th Avenue store. If you get a chance you really need to see this store. It's amazing and beautiful! And if you want anything Chanel go and see David (head make up artist) he'll help you! He's really lovely and funny!
Anyway I digress, so I have been using Vitalumiere Aqua all through the holiday where the humidity was insane! and also here at home (Melbourne's weather isn't quite springy just yet). It's a beautiful, dewy, liquid and covers flawlessly over all manner of sins. Believe me I have them! It feels very soft and light (compared to it's older cousin Vitalumiere which is a little creamier in texture), a little goes a very long way. It's non-comedogenic (that is it won't clog pores) and oil free. A bonus for those of us who have combination or oily skins. It has an SPF of 15 and that's great news for Aussies (what with no ozone layer). But of course always ensure that you have your suncreen on before applying any make up.
It comes in 10 different shades which match pretty well so most skintypes. RRP in Australai is $77 as it is a premium brand so expect to pay a premium price. However, I haven't found anything that comes close to it yet from a budget range. But I'm working on that too.
I really love it and wear it every day now a huge thumbs up from me. I hope you like it too. I'd love to hear if you have tried it. Let me know what you think of it. I know that this may not agree with everyone so your feedback is always welcome.
Until next time.
