I'm always in search of dewy foundations that don't make my skin look oily after a while. This foundation gives a nice, subtle glow and people definitely notice it. Ever since the chanel teint innocence compact was discontinued, this foundation is the closest match to it. The only problem I have with it is the coverage. If you're looking for something to cover any scars, etc then this really won't do you any good. And the smell is pretty strong, almost resembles and old lady's perfume, but of course it goes away after you apply it. Overall this is great for dry skin and honestly I don't have to moisturize my skin as much because of how moisture rich this foundation is. Because it's in a glass bottle, I am a little worried about dropping it because of how clumsy I am.

I have been using this for the past few months and I adore this foundation. My skin is a bit on the dry side, so I like the more oily/smooth texture of the foundation. It really blends into my skin and looks quite natural. By the end of the day, I can start looking a bit shiny, but it's not too bad and a bit of blotting paper will fix it. I'd rather that than a more mattified look, so I guess it's just the trade off. Overall, I love this and would repurchase it.

This foundation is AMAZING if you have dry skin and want a beautiful dewy HD look. It looks very natural and evens out skin tone. The coverage is sheer to medium. My bottle has lasted me 2 YEARS. It is worth every penny. I have acne prone skin and this is one of the only foundations that do not make me breakout. I cannot recommend it enough. Simply the best.

I´ve been using this foundation for a while.However they are soy expensive that also use MAC F&B. So i´m fair, a bit greasy but not so much, and i feel comfortable with this foundation. Not a single prone and my exact skin shade. It blends easily and stays long.

I really wanted to like this product, because it matches my skin tone very well (light beige) and looks great on - when first applied. However; give it a little time (hour or two) and my skin would look and feel very, very oily, which would in turn cause the foundation to come off and need re-application. One of the girls in the office was also using a Chanel foundation and had the same complaints in regards to oiliness - I think she was using Prolumiere, so it might be a theme across the Chanel foundations.

I got a sample of this in the mail in Beige 30 from Macy's. It is a perfect match for my skin. Unfortunately, the good news ends there. Even though I have a mild case of rosacea ( pink cheeks if I am out in the sun or baking but luckily no breakouts ) and am older ( a few fine lines but no major sun damage because I could never get a tan!) , I have pretty good skin. This foundation seemed to highlight my minor issues. Even though it feels light, it looks heavy on me. I felt like it made me look a lot older because it seemed to make some pores look larger and emphasized some fine lines. I felt like I was looking at my face in my 10 x magnifying mirror!. Since I found a perfect color match with this Chanel sample, I am inclined to look at some of Chanel's other foundations. I just gave this 3s on the packaging and price because I wasn't sure what to do but had to give a rating. I have no idea what the packaging looks like or what the prices is but I buy Chanel polishes so I expect the packaging is nice and the price somewhat expensive.

I never reach for this foundation in my stash because it is all wrong for me. Having said that, I can see this to be a good foundation for others with a different skin type from mine. My skin is combo leaning towards the oily side and when I apply this foundation onto my skin, it literally feels like I am spreading olive oil onto my face -- it feels THAT greasy! Strangely, when I initially bought it, I had tested the foundation on the back of my hand and I swore it didn't feel so greasy -- the skin on the back of my hands is quite dry so that must be the reason why it sunk it so well on the back of my hand and NOT on my face. The coverage of this foundation is light-medium, and it has a distinct floral scent that all Chanel foundations have. After applying this foundation all over my face, I looked like a very shiny greaseball so I dusted a mattifying loose powder over my entire face which helped make my face somewhat presentable. However, within less than an hour, I could already see the foundation oxidizing and my face getting shiny again!! *sigh* After a few more hours, my face just got greasier, darker, and the foundation was starting to wear off my face. This is all too bad because the shade 20 Clair is a really good match for my NC20/25 asian skintone. I can definitely see this foundation might work for dry skinned gals since it is very greasy and moisturizing, but oilier skinned should definitely stay FAR AWAY from this one.

I was a big BIG fan of the creme version of this foundation however Chanel discontinued it so at the moment, this is my favourite foundation! I have very sensitive, dry skin and suffer from eczema and some skincare / make up can bring on flare ups so I'm pretty fussy however I like high end make up. This foundation is very hydrating, it is a liquid foundation and it seems quite calming. Its only pitfalls are that my skin seems to love it so much it eats it after 4 or so hours and the coverage is a bit light for my liking...it's very sheer but I think the hydrating benefits outweights that. I like to apply with my fingers or a Real Techniques buffing brush (goes on beautifully) and you can build up coverage. I highly recommend and will keep on buying for as long as they continue this line.

I wanted to like this foundation but it just didn't work for me. I like the way it looks on my skin, and it is hydrating, but I just can't get past the smell of it: it smells like wall paint. And it transfers on napkins and phones and people...I ended up giving it away so I could buy a different one.
