Review of Chanel Vitalumiere by leigh78
I read the great reviews on this product but can't agree! I have combination skin which gets quite dry in the winter and I thought this foundation would be the answer. It is the most expensive foundation I have ever bought (EUR 36) and I had high hopes for it. Unfortunately like a couple of other reviews it highlights any flaws. It gives light coverage but is dewy/shiny in finish which seems to exaggerate any blemishes/open pores. The colour match (Clair II) is very good for my pale skin but I feel it makes my skin shiny and tired looking rather than illuminated. I will not buy again - disappointing.
UPDATE 15-FEB-2007: Have given this another go and am actually pleasantly surprised. Applied at 7am this morning, lightly dusted some Givenchy irridescent powder over and some Dallas powder and still looks flawless now at 8pm! Glowy skin - good for cold & wet Irish weather!
