I am on my second bottle of this great product. I wear B20 and find it perfect for my skin, neither cool nor warm. This is a water based foundation. It needs a good shakeup before application. I hate the silicone feeling of some primers and foundations and I hate it when my skin feels coated. This gives me a natural look that does not feel matte or dewy. It just feels like skin. I like the coverage I get from this which is light to medium. It covers up any discoloration but I find that if it is that time of the month and I have a pimple that I still need to go in with concealer which is fine because I would rather spot cover anyway. The lasting power is good as well. I know Paula of Paula's Choice remarked about alcohol present in this foundation. It does not irritate my skin and I speculate it might have something to do with longevity of wear. I find that this does not highlight fine lines or pores. If anything it provides a subtle blurring luminosity. It does not dry or make my combo skin oily. I will continue to buy this product. I also like that although it is Chanel, the $47.00 price point is not terrible.

This foundation is comparable to Laura Mercier's Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide in all but one respect; the colors are more natural. Laura Mercier's color range is limited to pink-orange and yellow. I like the Chanel foundation better. It wears well, lasts all day, and doesn't clump. It's actually very comfortable to wear. A light dusting of powder keeps my T-zone under control. The coverage is light to medium, and has a natural slightly luminous finish.

This was the first makeup item I ever purchased. I was suffering from the worst case of breakouts and felt the need to conceal them, and I happened to chance on Lisa Eldridge's video where she mentioned this was a very lightweight foundation that works very well on combination / oily skin types. Boy was she right! I wear the shade B10, and it just about covers the redness of the zits and evens out the skin tone beautifully. I do apply a light dusting of powder after, but that's only because I've got incredibly oily skin. The foundation takes on a slightly yellow undertone, making it wonderful for getting rid of any redness, yet not enough yellow to make the complexion sallow. On me, it wears beautifully, and I never need a primer when wearing this as it just becomes second skin. People are often surprised when I tell them I'm wearing foundation as this just looks so natural on me. I hear it oxidizes on some people but it doesn't for me. Then again, I do powder after application and perhaps that stops the foundation from oxidizing! A wonderful product, I've gone through two bottles of this and I can see myself repurchasing for the rest of my life. A little comparison of this with Bourjois' Healthy Mix Foundation (Bourjois makes Chanel makeup, by the way)... The Healthy Mix foundation gives out a slightly more dewy finish, and the fact that it's more moisturizing means it has a tendency to slip off my face. I wear the Vitalumiere Aqua on days when I know I will be out all day and don't want the hassle of having to touch up, but the Healthy Mix works beautifully for an evening out.

Omg! I love this foundation, when applying it feels like silk going onto your skin.It's a lightweight makeup but covers like a dream,I was pleasantly surprised! It only takes a little to cover any skin concerns. After 8 hours it still looked good,and I didn't have to touch up throughout the day.I'd definitely recommend.

This is perfection. I have always worn Estée Lauder double wear foundation and although it covered well I suffered with ongoing acne and I discovered it was because I wasn't letting my skin breathe. When I first tried this the lady at the counter said it was light to medium coverage . Now, it doesn't cover as thick as estee double wear but it covers enough redness and blotches. I used a concealor on top to cover pimples. I have now used this for 3 months and all my pimples have disappeared so I now have glowing skin. This makes your skin glow, it has enough coverage and yet looks so natural and never caked on. I wish I started on this earlier because when I switched to double wear again on a night out it felt so heavy and thick like a mask. Definitely recommend. Shake bottle well. Use fingers.

I really love this foundation - its has the most beautiful natural finish. The texture is the nicest I've ever come across - its pretty watery so give it a good shake before use. It glides onto the skin and is basically imperceptible, also its very easy to blend. I have fairly dry skin with quite a bit of redness to conceal, so initially I was concerned that this would be too light in coverage for me, but actually I find that I can build it up on the areas I need to a good medium coverage - if I have any particular blemishes a bit of pinpoint concealing sorts that out.

With my previous foundation (Laura Mercier Moisture Supreme) I found that my dry patches would be emphasised by the foundation, which was annoying as they tend to be the areas that are also more red. But Vitalumiere Aqua covers dry patches beautifully - they are really minimised in appearance, in a lovely semi-matt skin finish. The lasting power is reasonable, but with a little translucent powder over the top I get a good working day out of it before needing to touch up. Honestly even if the staying power was less I'd still buy this again because I love the finish of this foundation SO much.

Wanted so badly to love this, this cost $98 NZ dollars, but this foundation was such a let down. Colour wise and also caused a break out. Pale girls beware, B10 was too orange, especially considering this oxides badly-In a few hours it looked a shade darker. It also broke me out in my t-zone badly.

I've purchased this twice, I really enjoy the natural coverage and finish. I'm about an NC25 and B20 works well but it does oxidize a bit :(

I really love this foundation. I was wary of trying it because a lot of people with oilier skin types have said it isn't great for them, but after trying a sample I purchased.

I find it applies light-medium coverage but is build-able. I makes the skin look lovely and have a nice sheen for the finish. It has a lovely texture, runny but not so funny that it leaves the back of your hand and a slight scent that I can't describe but it isn't unpleasant.

I apply to the skin in blotches and blend with a damp beauty blender. I do find that I need to powder a couple of times throughout the day but if I do this it lasts well and doesn't look cakey or slide off.

I used this almost every day for 2 months before it ran out. I have repurchased this since running out of my first bottle.
