Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua (SGD$76) may be a slightly pricey product, but it has proven its quality in every single way which I really love about and here’s why it has been my essential foundation of choice ever since I first purchased it!
Here’s a breakdown why this is my ULTIMATE go to foundation for the past 2 years!
#1 LIGHT PACKAGING
Yes the bottle is made of plastic! Well, it may have lack the luxury weighty quality but its functional and easy to carry around with especially while travelling!
#2 WATER BASED FOUNDATION
The product is water based, which means you have to shake it well like a liquid paper before you use it as the product will separates when it’s not well shaken. After shaking it, the foundation is thin, light and velvety. What I love best is that the spout allows you to dispense the exact amount of product required and it isn’t runny at all.
#3 PERFECT SHADE FOR ASIAN
I love how they have a shade range that accommodates both cool and warm skin tones! Well, this CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua doesn’t cater to pale or deep extremes- the palest colour match (B10) is best suited to a MAC NC15. I’m currently using shade B20, a very good match for my NC20-25 skin with yellow undertones. And I also got a B30 for shading or when I’m slightly more tanned than usual.
#4 EASY APPLICATION
As it had a great liquid velvety consistency, it’s so easy to apply with my fingers! When it melts into your skin, it doesn’t feel tacky, heavy or greasy. It does feel light, powdery and soft.
#5 NATURAL FINISH
It may not be the best foundation out there when it comes to coverage, but it’s a winner for people like me who love the natural skin-light finish that isn’t too matte or dewy. While being a relatively sheer formulation, the coverage is pretty decent making my skin looks super natural and it stay really well for hours. The product is brilliant as it adhere well to my combination to oily skin even when I don’t set it with powder.
