Chanel Vitalumiere aqua

This is the only foundation i have ever re-purchased so its defiantly worth a blog post , being a complete and utter beauty geek , i just cant stick to a foundation even if i really like it , I'am  always looking for the next beauty market hype , well let me tell you THIS is the beauty market hype and this is a foundation that cannot be replaced , once you've tried this everything else will seem ''cakey'' & heavy.

I have alot of redness that i have to cover 

This is after 1 coat and no primer ( which helps to counteract redness) and in natural lighting

To describe this foundation i would probably use the words light as air , you step out of the house with the feeling of freshly washed skin , the main ingredient on the foundation is WATER ...yes water so it sits on the skin rather than going into the pores which is brilliant for anyone with skin problems , the coverage is said to be ''light to medium'' but i would say its more medium , its defiantly build-able and you can apply a few coats for more coverage ( and it still doesn't look cakey) , It was a yellow undertone which is brilliant for anyone who has redness or angry spots in their skin-tone as it counteracts the redness. The finish is matte/semi-matte so especially great for anyone with normal or oily skin but i have dry and i love it so i defiantly think its suitable for all skin types. It also contains a SPF 15 which is brilliant for any sun worshipers or people who like to protect there skin. This foundation costs £32 which may seem a bit steep but i can assure you it is WELL worth the money the light consistently allows you to be able to apply the smallest amount which can be spread over the entire face i find this lasts me around 2-3 Months , I can tell you that as a lover of this foundation i have tried so many duplicates and none stand up to this , i have tried applying with a brush & also my fingers and find that it is much better applied with the fingers.

Formula:  This foundation has to be to shaken well before applying it.  Once you squirt it out the consistency is a very thin liquid. 
Coverage:  The coverage is sheer.  If you just want to cover redness and not any serious acne then this foundation is great for you.  It looks very natural & is matte/semi-matte
Longevity:  This foundation lasts a long time on me, although that is subject to a person's skin type.  I have dry skin so I typically don't have a problem with fading foundation. I don't normally set this foundation with powder as its matte/semi-matte and i absolutely love the finish
Scent:  It smells really strong and floral while you apply it.  I absolutely love the smell, but it doesn't irritate my skin ( which is sensitive) and I don't notice it after I'm done applying.
Shade:  I use 50 Beige , The shade ''names'' have changed to just numbers but i believe beige 50 is ''Beige Sienna'' this is my summer shade and in the winter i use B40 which was previously known as ''Beige Dessert''


  1. Looks so good :) Really good coverage considering how 'light' you describe it as.

  2. hey hunni, you look gorgeous in the picture! do you think this foundation is high coverage? it looks amazing but i have such oily skin - you work it though :D

    sorry i haven't been as active as i would like, i haven't had much time recently to read blogs and stuff which sucks - but hoping to get back into it soon!

    you look stunning as usual and hope you are well! :)

    1. Thank you zoeeeee :)

      Thank you beautiful ... its a medium/light coverage but is defiantly build-able i think its worth you trying a tester :) its defiantly really suitably for oily skin as its finish is matte let me no if you try it lovely :)


  3. Ooooo, think I'll definitely have to try a tester of this now! Looks so good on your skin! x
