You know the lipsticks that are ‘your lips, but better’? This foundation is your skin, but better. This is the most luxurious make up item I have ever owned, and I am so glad I decided to try it. This is a water based foundation, and I wear the lightest beige shade, B10. I wouldn’t say it’s for the palest of people out there, I’m a Rimmel Ivory and Illamasqua SB4 to compare. I love wearing this on good skin days, it’s very sheer but it has a lovely finish. When I have no spots, it applies like a dream and is the perfect foundation for the ‘no make up’ make up look.
This foundation has a shockingly easy application. Normally I’m sat there buffing in my foundation for ages, but with this it takes me less time than doing my eye shadow. It is an absolute dream to apply as it doesn’t go streaky with a regular foundation brush. It has a quite strong fragrance, but I like how it smells as it just adds to the luxurious feel of the product. It feels so light and airy on the skin, it is so breathable! I never thought a foundation could feel that breathable, but I literally forget I’ve got it on a lot of the time.
The packaging is lovely, simple and elegant which represents the Chanel name perfectly. I like the squeezy bottle, I don’t think it would feel very ‘Chanel’ with a pump. It looks perfect on my dressing table, feels perfect on my face and I’m so glad I own it. You can buy it for £33, it is well worth it, especially if you like to keep a small make up collection.
