Current Foundation Favourite – Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundationin shade B30 or 30 beige review and swatch :
Hi everyone! I thought I would share with you my new favourite foundation. This foundation may not seem like a surprise, as many other bloggers favourite this foundation too and rightly so, because I have been reaching for this constantly since I got it. I first heard about this foundation from Fleur on her YouTube channel Fleurdeforce and it made her skin look beautiful without looking like she was wearing foundation at all and this is exactly what I was looking for! I went to the Chanel counter in town and got myself a sample of this foundation and absolutely loved it but the price put me off purchasing the full size. That was last year and I finally gave in and brought the full size product a few weeks ago at £32 as I loved it that much.
This foundation comes in a small plastic bottle which is great for travelling, although for the price that you pay for it you would want something a little more luxurious for your money which one of the downsides to it.
This consistency of this foundation is water based which gives it a light runny texture. I love how this foundation looks and feels on my skin as it is so light you cannot feel it sitting on top of the skin. It is quite hydrating whilst providing a medium coverage. You can also layer it to build it up to full coverage and even by doing this it still doesn’t look or feel heavy. I find that this foundation covers up red blotches and pigmentation with ease and it really does feel like a second layer of skin.
Before each use, you need to give the bottle a good shake as some of the product can separate because of the water based consistency. I find that this foundation is best applied with finger tips as it blends easily and sinks perfectly into the skin leaving no streaks. It can also be applied with a brush depending on personal preference but as this foundation is so light and liquidy, a makeup brush would soak up most of the product which would waste it.

When blended into this skin, it gives a lovey sheen and makes you look quite radiant and healthy looking. despite the SPF I have worn this on a night out where flash photography has been used and I haven’t had a problem with looking like a ghost in pictures! so this is fine to use with flash photography which is a bonus.
