search for the perfect foundation #2

Chanel Perfection Lumiere foundation - £37 (shade 40 - beige)


Coverage: 4.5/5
Application: 5/5
Long Lasting: 5/5
Shade: 5/5

As you can probably tell, I'm absolutely in LOVE with this foundation. It has literally everything I would look for in a foundation and more. I applied this with my real techniques buffing brush but found it goes on just as easily with my fingers too. It blended in so effortlessly and when it's actually on the skin it feels so silky to touch which I've never experienced from a foundation before. I would say the coverage is medium but is definitely build-able and doesn't look at all cakey on. It has a semi-matte finish, which I like and I find that I don't need to powder this and it still lasts all day (Which on my oily t-zone is amazing!). It has quite a strong fruity smell to it so if you have problems with sensitive skin or perfumes in cosmetics this one may not be for you, but I personally love it. Also the fact that it has SPF10 in is a nice extra and even with flash it photographs nicely. I think the only down side of this 'perfect' foundation is the not-so-perfect price tag of £37.. ouch! However this is genuinely the best foundation I've ever tried so I would definitely repurchase.

next up i'll be trying MAC pro-longwear :)...
