My favorite foundation ever. It matches my skin perfectly, they have a good variety of colors for fair skin tones (every single other foundation I have gotten has been too dark and made me look orange, I got beige rose 12) and the pink color makes it match even better. I apply it with a damp beauty blender after moisterizer and maybelline baby skin, and it blends amazing, doesn't look cakey at all. The only bad thing about it is the price, with tax it comes to about 50 dollars, and i have to rebuy it every two months or so. But it is well worth the price.

Everything is good about this foundation - the finish is gorgeous, it's light, doesn't irritate skin, minimizes pores - except the shades. I am pale and bought the shade Beige 10 and after 5 minutes it turned several shades darker than my skintone. Sadly, I will not repurchase.

I can honestly say that I've found my holy grail foundation. When buying a foundation I'm always checking billions of beautyblogs to check if a product is worth the hype.. You guys.. This product is amazing!It gives such a nice, I'd say light to medium, coverage but it still feels very light on the skin: almost as if you're wearing a BB-cream but the coverage is sooooo good!It can easily cover any redness to the face without making your face feel/look cakey. I always apply foundation with the Sigma F80 flat kabuki brush (which is my all-time favorite makeup brush šø)I've got combination skin: a little bit oily on the t-zone and some pimples here and there once in a while, but at the same time my skin can feel very dry. For example, when I get out of the shower I MUST apply a moisturizer immediately because my skin will feel like sandpaper š This foundation hydrates and I love the subtle hint of perfume it has.I always powder off my foundation and at the end of the day it still looks as if I've just put the product on.I would definitely repurchase this foundation!Fan-spam! Love, a beautygeek from the Netherlands

Finding the best foundation for your skin is even tougher than finding the best man for you! I'm married and have a beautiful son, found the best house to live, the best jeans to fit my curves and yet, at 33 I couldn't find a foundation to be loyal to. I watched a random youtube foundation review by this girl (unfortunately i don't remember her name) who claimed to have the same skin issues as me: Very sensitive combination/oily skin, that gets clogged very very easily and has a tendency to break out. So I was intrigued! She sweared by Chanel Perection Lumiere Velvet foundation and it definitely hit a nerve with me. I am the girl that gets a deep pore extraction facial every single month to keep a decent looking skin. I am the girl that cries when I meet people who have never had a single facial treatment!So, I decided to try this foundation after having used almost every other foundation there is. And it was a hallelujah moment!! since it was quite pricey, i asked the girl at the store to apply it on my face first. I loved it at first but was hesitant about how it would look after a couple hours or so. I left and went on with the rest of my day working, shopping etc...Before leaving work, some 9 hours later, I had a look in the mirror and was amazed! my skin looked exactly the same as it did 9 hours ago! I left right away to go buy it, and was so emotionally charged that i even bought the -quite extravagantly priced- loose powder too. I have never looked back! I get compliments ALL THE TIME and i feel like i've discovered the holly grail or somthg...I really like the packaging. Simplistic and practical, it's just easier than the glass one and I don't have to worry about breaking it.I used to apply foundation with fingers but I found that this one best applies with a triangle sponge for a "minimized pore" look.The finish is matte but natural. Which is amazing for skin types like mine.People keep mentioning its scent, and quite frankly i' m surprised. I hadn't even noticed it before I read these reviews.Also, coverage is light but can be a buildable medium. I hate full coverage so that was great for me. Overall, it's the best foundation ever! I truly feel complete now!

This is foundation that gives out a slightly powdery finish. I looked forward to buying this as I live in a humid climate and am always after a matte-r base to keep those oilies at bay. As much as I love the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation, this has let me down. True to its name, the Perfection Lumiere Velvet does dry down to a velvet finish, quite quickly I must add, so quick blending is key. Like the Vitalumiere Aqua, I wear the shade B10 in this one but the Perfection Lumiere Velvet oxidized slightly on me. Coverage wise is so-so, medium but I found it difficult to layer product on without having it cake up on me. This also clung on to dry patches on my cheeks, despite me moisturizing well and even applying primer under. It also didn't last very long on me, as I could only wear it for around 4 hours before it completely slides off my face.

Firstly I have combo/oily skin. I can wear shade B30 or B40 and I'm an NC30/35. I find going lighter (B30) better because it does oxidize just a tad. Not an orange oxidize but just a tad darker. I have tried most Chanel foundations. I really like the packaging. As much as glass is pretty, this is just easier and I don't have to worry about dropping it. I find this best applies with fingers which is Chanel's recommended method too. The finish is matte but natural. Definately not powdery/Cakey. Blends easy and really fuss free application. If I don't moisturize properly, I do find I can see his sitting on the skin. So beware dry skins. It last well throughout the day. Does wear a bit around the nose and chin but I'm an oily girl and this is the story of my life! Lol! This has the Chanel scent that they put in their makeup. A light floral scent. Lasts for about 1 hour after application. I like scents so it doesn't bother me. Feels light on the skin and have had no issues with breakouts. I wouldn't recommend for really dry or really oily skins. Coverage is light to buildable medium. I couldn't achieve full coverage. Overall a nice foundation. Costs $77AUD which is roughly the same as the new Nars foundation. Not cheap but it's totally relative to how much you want to spend and how much you can afford.

Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium, Not Sure
This foundation is amazing, it has a very special formula, it is a combination of many things that an oil-phobe and acne prone skin like me wouldn't dare buying it because it looks watery and so my assumption is that it would be a very sheer finish, but when you start blending it into your skin it turns into this powdery sort of satin finish , and best part is that it is build-able after the first layer dries off, no cakey-ness whatsoever and it looks like you have a new flawless sort of skin. The first day after I've bought it, i tried it on and my co-worker complimented how great my skin looks and asked if i use a new cream. I din expect to love this at all, as I've tried one of the foundation from Chanel previously namely PERFECTION LUMIĆRE LONG-WEAR FLAWLESS FLUID SPF 15 and i hated it, as it breaks me out on the same night i use it and i was very disappointed , i was hesitant to try this at first but seeing the finishing was so beautiful i decided to purchase and i'm not regretting it at all. only one down side which i dislike, is the perfume , it has this pungent scent to it but good thing is that it dissipates after some time . Important point to application, please apply moisturizer and prep your skin before application and shake the foundation before use.

Very light weight matte foundation. I like how this looks on my maturing skin. It dries quickly so I do have to work in with my fingertips one areaAt a time. I have been wearing it with dr jart BB Cream underneath & it lasts all day. I will be interested to see if I like it as much in the winter-since my skin looks so dry then.

I have tried SO many foundations. My skin is really broken out from acne and this has been a saving grace. I keep coming back to it. Very nice finish. Here's how good it is: I relied on it in 100 degree Texas heat and humidty. I spent a lot of time outside. By the end of the day it was still in place. Its quite expensive - I think around $45-$50, but I haven't had to rebuy and I've had it for months. Highly recommend. It goes on really nice with a beauty blender.

I finally found it, y'all - the perfect foundation after searching for so long! I'm surprised this doesn't have better reviews - but it may be that the application is tricky. You have to make sure you've exfoliated, then apply a good moisturizer and something that works as a primer (I use Tatcha sunscreen). Then you have to blend it with a Beauty Blender or foundation brush. Applying with fingers will NOT work with this one - it will look dry, dull, and patchy if you do. So why do I love it? I've been searching for a foundation that will work with my dehydrated but oily skin for years. Because my skin can look dull and dry and has some roughness, I don't like matte foundations because they make my skin look worse and highlight roughness and dry patches - but because my skin gets really oily quickly (yes my skin is oily and dry at the same time, weird!), "dewy" foundations don't work at all, but slide around and puddle up. I also want one that provides some coverage, but lets my real skin show through, and one that won't settle in fine lines under my eyes making me look older. It's a tall order, and I've tried everything from by Terry, Guerlain, MUFE, Urban Decay, Bobbi Brow, Laura Mercier, Hourglass, and tons more trying to find one to fit the bill. I discovered this one by accident, when I was browsing in Nordstrom. The sales associate offered to take off my makeup and reapply it, and when she finished and I looked at my skin I thought "Oh my goodness, how did she make it look so smooth?" It gave it the perfect airbrush finish and smoothed over roughness and dryness. My husband and mother-in-law picked me up from the store and both said "what did you do to your skin? It looks so good!" So this foundation really made a huge difference. It also stayed on so well, and still looked beautifully fresh at 11 pm. However, when I later tried to apply the sample she gave me, I was very disappointed - it looked nothing at all like when she had applied it, but looked like a standard dry foundation. After playing with it, I discovered the perfect application technique described above, and wow - it makes skin look gorgeous and lasts all day! It does not budge! I still have to blot mid-day, but it never slides around or comes off. I even took a shower in it today (my face got wet but I didn't wash it), and it STILL looked good. I didn't even have to retouch it the rest of the day. If you're looking for lightweight, natural looking (no mask or chalk face here!), moderate but buildable coverage, long lasting, smoothing, satin-finish foundation - this is it! To be fair there are a few draw backs to this - I don't like that it has fragrance and alcohol in this, and I also try to avoid octinoxate. But I'm willing to overlook these flaws for such a pretty foundation :-)
