It’s no secret that Chanel can do no wrong in the clothing department, but they must also employ some serious cosmetics wizards in their beauty product development team because the Vitalumiere Aqua makeup foundation from the iconic brand trumps all others.

Because the foundation is water-based it’s incredibly light on skin- it almost feels like you’re not wearing any at all- and easy to blend in. The lightness allows you to not only use it as a base for your makeup, but you can also easily dab it on over your finished makeup for a little touch up without looking cake-y.

You might think that because of it’s water-like super fluid texture (which is why shaking before use is an absolute must) the Vitalumiere doesn’t give as strong a coverage as a heavier foundation, but for everyday use on skin with slight blemishes it works wonders and truly achieves the ‘skin perfecting’ result the package promises.

However, if you’re looking to hide bigger problem areas the Vitalumiere will require a strong concealer underneath and possibly several layers of the product to achieve the desired coverage.

The product has a SPF factor of 15, which, together with it’s lightness, makes it the perfect summer foundation as it let’s your skin breathe while protecting you from those nasty UV rays.

Priced at around £30 the product isn’t the most affordable option out there, but it is a touch of (interlocking Cs) luxe that you will wear every day, so we say it’s worth it! For more information visit
