A new season, a new foundation.
I've been a fan of Chanel's foundations since I discovered their Perfection Lumière.
Although the Perfection Lumière was pore refining, skin smoothening, and just about an all round beauty of a foundation; I felt that this time I needed something a little bit lighter. Something that gave me more of an everyday glow than the completely concealed look that foundation can give you.
I was busy looking at tinted moisturisers when I came across Vitalumière Aqua.
It's more than a tinted moisturiser, but not quite as full on as a foundation.
The make-up is water based which means that you do have to shake it up a bit before you apply it; but it also means that it is so much better for your skin than other foundations. Which is great for my combination skin type.
The foundation feels as though your pores are less clogged, but at the same time, it does seem to give a pretty good amount of coverage.
I've taken a picture to demonstrate, but I'll have to apologise in advance for my slightly scared, slightly shifty looking expression.
I am so pleased with this foundation, and I would definitely recommend it as a great, lightweight spring/summer/holiday foundation.
You can find it here, but I would strongly suggest taking a trip to your nearest Chanel counter, and getting colour matched by one of their assistants.
The lady who helped me was lovely, and my trip was worth it as it turned out that I needed a completely different colour than I first thought.
