I am now on my third bottle of Vichy Aera Teint Foundation. I would say this is an excellent foundation at this price. The texture is light, so it is easy to blend, and won't dry your skin. I like this foundation as it gives a pretty natural look; however, if you want a better coverage, concealcer is a must.

In general this foundation is definitely a good one. The colour match for me was brilliant (lightest shade chosen) and it neutralised the pinkness of my cheeks nicely, went on smooth over good old La Roche Posay Cicaplast (brilliant makeup primer for me, sticks down all those pesky dry flakes!).
But, for me it doesn't last 12 hours. Only about 3 or 4. Even with Vchy Dermablend setting powder, this still is shiny and fading away in a short time. Surprisingly my Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation lasts longer than the Vichy Aera Teint on me.
I'm going to try putting in over the Vichy Dry Touch Face Emulsion SPF 30 to see if that makes a difference and will update if it does.
UPDATE: This foundation wears extremely well when set with ELF's Mineral Boost powder. Also, I now wear it over my La Roche Posay Cicaplast as mentioned above but instead of the Vichy Dry Touch, I now use La Roche Posay Tinted SPF 50 fluid for oily/combo skin.

Thank you for making this glorious foundation. My sister and I are pale English rose types and have a very hard time finding foundations that are pale enough and don't make us look yellow. Thanks for including the ingredient list for all to see. I did a lot of research on all the nasties that go into cosmetics and am very careful about what I put on my skin as I am acne prone, parabens are a total no no and found in allmost every product, but not this one. No breakouts. My skin loves this!! It gives good coverage for blemishes without the caked look. Thumbs up from me xxx

I love this foundation. My skin has been break out prone through most of my 20's and I attribute the reasonably lengthy stretch of nearly flawless skin I've been experiencing in part to this product. I just repurchased for the third time so I thought it was time to write a review. The colour range is somewhat limited but I find the formula kind of adjusts to my skin tone (NC20) and blends naturally. I had originally purchased it in 35 Sand in 2010 for the summer when I had a tan (it's great for hot weather when you want a glowing and natural -NOT matte - finish). When the tan began to fade I picked up 12 Opal and mixed the two until the lighter shade worked well enough on its own. I thought it was a bit unflattering and washed me out so I recently picked up 23 Ivory and I'm in love. I worried it might be a bit yellow (my skin tone is fairly neutral with some pinkness in certain areas) but no - it's perfect. My morning routine is to use Bioderma Hydrabio or Reversa Green Tea Serum, then Biotherm Deep Hydration Replenishing Gel For Normal/Combination Skin. Then I apply my Cover FX SkinPrep FX Nourishing Primer. This creates a great base IMO for any foundation I've used. I squirt half a pump onto the back of my hand and apply it with my fingers (brush works well also). I then set it with Cover FX setting powder. This manages to mask the bit of acne scarring I'm left with around my chin without concealer, but lets my skin show through (which I like). I couldn't be happier with my skins naturally glowing appearance and I literally get compliments daily on my complexion. Wouldn't be the case without this foundation - HD for me!

A very nice makeup, that has not broken my skin out - I am using it for about 2 weeks now, not daily, though, and it allows my skin to breath, I do not feel it at all like a caked mask on my face, unlike other foundations. My skin is slightly oily, but I do not feel the need to layer it with powder. It is very easy to blend with fingers, and leaves the skin fresh looking and healthy. I wanted a foundation to cover some redness on my quite pale face, and to make me look more polished. I don't know how it would do with major imperfections, but it is buildable. All in all, a good, affordable product that does what I wanted.

This foundation is easy to blend and has a light to medium coverage. It doesn't look powdery or cakey. But it doesn't last long. 3 to 4 hours is all it takes to melt it down to the point where you lose all your coverage. if you live in a hot climate or sweat a little bit it goes even faster. It might be more suitable for people with dry skin living somewhere cold. No wonder they don't sell it in the US. One more thing you need to know is never wear light color cloths when you wear this foundation because it transfer very easily.
I give it a 2 for the nice texture but I will not purchase it again. In fact, I can't quit blaming myself for wasting money on this while I have something better already.

I purchased this back in April and didn't think much of it; mainly my skin was dry & thin b/c of the acid & Vit. C product I was using. Now its June, warm & humid, it is working for me while my winter fdn is taking a break. My skin is about NC 35, I have learned to buy 2 shades to custom blend my colour, I have #35 Sand & #46 Honey. I used an equal proportion, #46 Honey has a bit of peachy tone to it which works since I tanned despite of sunscreen & my skin turned a bit orangy while tanned.
The fdn is quite watery in texture and at the most will give medium coverage, however I find it is good as a lay-down while I topped it up with mineral powder. I will give this a 3.5 instead of a 4, nothing special yet no complain about it, 12 hour wear is a joke, I did a lot of walking today, if I didn't topped it up with powder, my body heat would have melted it off.
Bottle, pump, jar, tube nor smell is never an issue, so I'll leave the whinning to the appropriate individuals.

I think this is the best foundation I've ever used. It honestly feels so light on my skin and it goes on like air. It's also not too quick to dry so you can take your time blending. It doesn't break me out at all. I just wish that they had a few more colors to offer. The sand might be just a tad too dark and the next one down is too light for sure. Oh well, it's so wonderful and easy to blend that it's really a minor gripe. Holy Grail for sure. Edit: I think this stuff eventually ended up giving me some breakouts. Plus it's not great for the summer as it is too hydrating for my skin. Maybe give it another try in the winter months. Also I don't like the colour selection. Either too light or too dark. I won't be repurchasing this.

The only foundation that I found that is near-light enough for my skin (still a bit too dark) It gives a nice, natural finish and a slight glow :)
However, i hae acne prone skin, and it didn't do much to hide spots or redness. The lightest colour is slightly pinkish, and acne prone skin is always advised to pick a foundation with a yellowish tone.
Also, it's extremely runny. I have to be really careful when using the pump - once it all sprayed all over my dressing table. I'd probably buy this again, along with a goooood concealer, but if you have generally good skin and an even skin tone, I'd definitely recommend it :)

This makeup is wonderful, it goes on so nice! Its not too heavy which I really like, it is a very natural look it does do a good coverage without looking over done! With the fluid a little goes a long way it seems.
My skin never seems to break out anymore which is WONDERFUL ! :D
it is in a nice glass pump bottle I really like that, the only thing is how much it cost $27 CAN. But I likely will buy a third hahaa

I've been using this foundation for about 2 weeks now. I have quite a bit of redness on my cheeks to cover. I am about a mac NC15-20 and I found that the colour 23 Ivory was too dark on me, and I could clearly see a difference between my face and neck. I bought shade 12, Opal, and mixed about 1 part of that to 3 parts Ivory and found that works really well.
I love the texture of this foundation; its very easy to blend and feels like it melts into my face. It feels very natural. I have pretty dry skin so I have to make sure I moisturize a lot beforehand or it shows my dry patches. No break outs so far from this, the ingredients seem pretty friendly.I found that it did not transfer, and lasted a long time. The finish was matte on me.The packaging with the pump bottle is excellent.
I took one lippy off due to the fact that there are too few shades and I dont enjoy the process of having to go out and buy two and mix them together. So I may try something with a better shade selection next, but I will definitely finish what I have left first. :)

Before I start talking about the foundation itself, I want to clear somethings: i have acne prone, combination, sensitive skin. I am NC15.
When I got this foundation, the first thing that caught my attention was the packaging, it is made of a solid plastic, which really looks like glass, I only found out that is wasn't glass, because it felt from enormous highs multiple times and it never broke. It come with a pump, that really helps controlling the amount of product (unlike MAC' s pro longwear concealer pump).
I got it in the color 23 Clair ivory, which is appropriate for a NC15 or NC20 skin. The undertone is yellow, so if you have warn skin undertone, you should be careful.
I have been using this for a month and it hasn't broke me out (MIRACLE!), the texture is very similar to MAC's face&body, but the is medium coverage. They say it stays up to 12 h, I don't know about that, however it does stay for more than 6 hours. Without blotting my face stays ''matte'' for about 4 hours, and even though I get shiny, the foundation never ''disappears'' , after that I apply MAC's blot powder, and I stay ''shine free'' for the rest of the day. I applied with my finger tips, and this is the first foundation I have ever used, that I think the coverage is buildable, as it is so fluid, you can use 3 coats without looking fake, if you blend well. It smells just like clinique's clarifying lotion. It comes with 30 ml. Well, this was a pretty long review, I hope you like it! Have a nice day
it does not last as long as it used to, and one hour, or even less, after i applied on my face, when i look in the mirror i am oily again.

I bought this after reading a rave review on a blog (Can't remember which one now). Anyway, I got it in the lightest shade online for about £14 which I didn't mind because Vichy is a well known quality brand and I had heard good things about this makeup.
When I first apply it, it looks really good - REALLY good, like my skin is totally flawless - even if I look really close up in the mirror. About an hour later, it looks too pink on my face. Then about an hour after that it looks as though I have not put any on. When I take my makeup off there is still loads coming off on the wipes so I am not sure what's happening here.
Also what I HATE about this foundation is that it feels sticky. Lately I have really hated the feel and look of putting powder on over my liquid foundations but that is sometimes the only way to get rid of the stickyness. If this foundation gave a more matte finish, I think I would like it.
So for now, I will not be repurchasing but I will hold onto it to try again in the future and see if it agrees with me a bit more then!

yes it is really good foundation ,but the choice of color is horrible I am NW(20-25) and I BOUGHT NUMBER 23 it is a little too light but for winter time will be fine but I THINK THAT next color 35 sand will not be a match for summer
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Medium, Warm Hair: Brunette, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
This foundation is not heavy, just natural, I have in ivory colour, first I apply the moisturizer aqualia antiox, at least 10 min before I apply the foundation as the moisturizer is a bit shiny .Then, lightly use mineral powder vichy aera teint 35 sand. My face feels good, it does not give me the feeling of having foundation, and it does not break me out. It is natural and beautiful.

This is quickly becoming my holy grail foundation ... completely evens out my skintone with great coverage yet this product still lets my skin breathe ... i am an NW35 and i wear 35 (sand) ... it blends beautifully and my skin still looks like "skin" ... i use a mac 130 brush and buff it in ... then i take a dampened cosmetic sponge and go over it to even out the finish ... the packaging is top notch ... glass bottle with pump and cap ... awesome for travel as it won't get messy ... amazing value for $27 ... i have partially used nars sheer glow, makeup forever matte +, and mac studio fix all taking up space in my makeup drawers ... none hold a candle to this foundation ... excellent !

I'm nc30-35 and use medium. It looks yellow when applied but it blended well with my skin tone and covered my acne marks decently. If I really want to cover my acne marks, I apply vichy's dermablend concelaer over it. In general, I love this foundation. The texture is fluid as indicated but once you apply it to skin, it feels thicker and evens out my complexion with just 1/2 a pump. Even better, it doesn't break me out and is hypoallergenic and non-comodogenic.

Great foundation, great value for money. I bought this foundation 2 years ago and have been re-purchasing it until now. Just, there is something with the colours. I use Ivory, but sometimes I get comments from people that I look pale.I think I will try a darker colour next time.
It takes a while before you discover which coulour suits you best. I agree, the colour which is in the bottle is not the colour on your face.

This is my very first time giving any foundation a full 5 Lippie rating. I have been using this for a few months on and off, experimenting with others inbetween, but still find myself going back to this eventually.
I purchased this in shade #23 Ivory for Regular/Combination which matches my NC20-25 skin with yellow undertones perfectly. Half a pump of this product is all you need, as it is very liquid and spreads/blends into the skin easily. Once it is applied, it seems to melt into my skin, leaving me with the illusion of perfect skin. My skin does not look dewy, nor matte nor satin, but just as if I've been blessed with clean, natural, fresh-looking skin. It provides medium coverage and is resistant to smudging, creasing, oxidizing, fading or flaking all day long. I have combo/oily skin and usually require a primer or a heavier foundation to control my oils, with an addition of setting powder to keep me shine-free. This does it all with no added product---not even powder.
The packaging is also amazing; sleek glass bottle with a pump and a cap to protect from any leakage during travel. One full pump of product is far too much for myself, and I imagine it would be for others too, but the good thing is that you can control how much or how little as you need.
I do still require a small amount of concealer for my undereyes, but not nearly as much as I normally would with MAC Pro longwear or even Revlon Colorstay. It removes easily at night, and I have no worries about leaving behind any traces as I do with my Colorstay.
Overall, an amazing buy. Price paid was $27.99 CDN at Shoppers Drug Mart.
I have also been using Maybelline FIT me! for a couple of weeks, which gives me a dewy look, but still prefer this. I will continue to use this on days in which I wear heavier eye makeup/full face and keep my FIT me! for natural-looking eye makeup.

this is how foundation should look like, feel like, smell like and do what it is supposed to do!Vichy AT has it all!!
a fantastic creamy, liquidey foundation that glides on your skin like butter, doesn't leave greasy residue, lasts on my mixed skin for at least 6,7 hours...
it is not so expensive, and has a beautiful range of colours..
I've bought it in 35 Moyen (which is a slightly yelowish NW 25/30 match.
It is very suitable for oily and mixed types of skin, and I could reccomend it to everyone..
one thing that has been concearning me, is the heavy alcoholic smell after you pump it out of the bottle, but that vanishes almost immediately after you put it on your face..
I would say it has sort of medium covering power, but it is realy good and I'd definitely repurchase!
(price in my country, and I'm european, is about 20 $)
