Due to Chanel's idiotic decision to discontinue this for me, was my go-to base for your skin but better look. It's always the way with cosmetic brands to discontinue a product, only to launch a hyped up so-called newly introduced scientific concept in pigments. With LE TEINT ULTRA TENUE, which is full of alcohols, producing a nowhere near as comparable or efficacious finish to the …Read more

Pros:
Great colour range for pale skin- probably the best colour match I've ever had in a foundation
Settles on beautifully
Medium coverage without looking cakey
Sleek packaging

Cons:
Oily on- if you have an oily t zone make sure you wear a good primer and set with powder
A bit pricey

The negative reviews on here astound me. Perfection Lumiere isn't meant to be a high coverage foundation - if anything it's very low coverage and only meant to even out skin tone - so all the comparisons to full coverage foundations like EL's double wear make zero sense. You should understand your skin type before blindly buying foundations. This is meant for combination skin, so …Read more

Who's the twat who discontinued this masterpiece? WHO? How can you discontinue this holy grail of foundations? If you've got oily skin and pale skin, this is your go-to product. Scour every shop and mall for the remaining bottles of this beauty. It's too good to miss. With this foundation, you don't need powder. Apply it very quickly and watch it transform into a pearly and …Read more

This foundation is really awesome, perfect for combination oily skin (moderately oily T-zone). I can get at least 10 hours with this, though there is still a little wear, however nothing I'd worry about. Shine will come through about 6 hours in, but again nothing major. A quick blot sorts it out. I've read that people have broken out with it, but I've never found this and I have …Read more

I was sadly disappointed by this product. On the pros side, it is indeed matte and stays on well all day (I’m not the kind of person who would expect their foundation to stay immaculate from morning to night, at the same eliminating oil production – in fact, I would be too scared to use such a thing on my skin if it ever existed). Unfortunately, Perfection Lumiere oxidized on me, plus it broke me …Read more

This foundation is getting discontinued which is a shame because I only just purchased it this year and I like it! It's a light-medium buildable to medium coverage. Semi matte finish. Texture is perfect, not too thin like water or thick. Is easy to apply and blend. Is more suitable to oily to combo skin. I have dry skin but can get it to work because it's semi matte. The lasting power …Read more

I always associate elegance and class with Chanel but this foundation has neither. The SA spent quite some time painting this on me and the results weren't that great under the harsh lights of the Chanel store. My pores looked huge and it settled into fine lines and made me look quite old. I figured he went a bit overboard with application and took a sample so I could try it the next day. By …Read more

It's been a long time since I could rave about a Chanel product. In the past they were my one and only but they became upstaged by much better quality products. This foundation is perfection all the way. I wasn't looking necessarily for a long wearing foundation since I expected too many compromises that also appear with long wearing lip colour. This has a beautiful finish - not dewy …Read more

I went to the Chanel boutique and the sales assistant tried different shades and told me I was a 30 Beige so I bought it, after applying it home I realised it made me look orange!! after a while my face got very oily as well even though it's "oil-free". Awful product and very expensive!
