I think this is the most expensive piece of makeup I own, but I got it for a very good price when I redeemed my hudson bay reward points, even then it was about $20.
I use the Perfection Lumiere liquid foundation and wanted something on top that would give my skin an even more flawless finish. Although my skin doesn't look 100% flawless, it's a lot better than using translucent powder on my foundation.
I like how this comes with a brush instead of the usual puff. It also comes with a sponge that you can wet, but I've never used the foundation with a damp sponge and don't intend on it either.
The oil control is pretty good as I get oily on my nose really easily.
Not really sure what else to say about it. It's my touch up powder, finishing powder on days that I want to look more flawless, has a slight floral scent but doesn't linger.
This is the Chanel Vitalumiere Eclat Comfort Radiance Compact Makeup SPF 10.
The coverage is light to medium depending on your method of application. It comes with a powder puff and an amazing brush that can both be stored in the compact. Personally I use my Sigma F80 to apply it layer after layer. It leaves a smooth soft-matte finish to the skin which never looks cakey. As the day goes on (and take note: my skin is OILY and I live in a tropical climate), the finish becomes a dewy glow and not oily. Best powder foundation I have ever used!
I am reviewing Vitalumiere Eclat Comfort Radiance Compact Makeup SPF 10 in B20 Beige Tendre.
Lovely packaging and comes with a foam pad and a broad brush applicator - so you can brush it on or pat it on. Non drying - good color .
I love this compact foundation so much <3 I have tried many brands such as Lancome, Mac, Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier but I have to say Chanel made me stop trying another brands. If you have dry skin and nothing much to cover, this is suitable because it gave u a fresh and light look. It did not break my skin out even my skin is so sensitive. continued >>
This has almost no coverage, sits on super-powdery top of my skin, emphasizes dry patches, wears off quickly and the hinge broke inside my makeup bag with after less than 3 weeks with no unusual use. The best I can say is that it has a nice, big mirror and that it doesn't irritate my skin. Maybe this would be better as a regular pressed powder over a tinted moisturiser, but that's not how this is packaged and I've got a problem with misleading advertising.
My skin is dry and this powder is perfect, you can literally pile it on without looking cakey. Using alone yields minimum coverage but paired with YSL Touche Eclat fdn, they are a perfect match, well, for me at least.
I am NC 30 at the moment and I purchased B40, which is a tad too warm so I will save it for summer but I will return for the B30 tomorrow. Just wish it is not that expensive though.
BTW, I use a brush for application.
This is the ultimate HG powder foundation for my dry - normal skin! It is the only powder foundation that does not go on looking flaky, dry and cakey on my skin! This would be extremely useful for dry winter season! Its powder is extremely finely milled hence it looks very silky and goes on unnoticble on the skin. It is my daily foundation. With 1 light layer, I look so natural like I am not wearing any makeup with it. The coverage is light but buildable to medium. The faint rose scent, as of all Chanel products, is lovely. The powder foundation is to be used dry. It hardly oxidises hence it remains relatively fresh at the end of the day. Although it is pricey, a box can last me for a year or more! Chanel also has the Mat Lumiere range for oily skin. SOOOO satisfied with all the Chanel makeup/skincare products I've tried so far!
This is the Only powder suitable for my extreme dry and acne skin, so natural with no flaky. Perfect combo with Vitalumere foundation. HG product
I would give it 4,5 if I was able to.
Like others said its very silky and unnoticble on the skin. You look so natural like you don't wear any makeup with it.
So I really like it overall.
The only downfall is that it can be melty when your skin is too oily.
Te package has an exclusive quality as usual. It comes with a brush and sponge.
