Chanel Perfection Lumiere

Chanel Perfection Lumiere Review:

What Chanel says “PERFECTION LUMIÈRE controls every detail of a perfect complexion to offer a tailor-made result, a model of perfection by CHANEL. Its light, fluid texture glides on seamlessly with adjustable yet lightweight coverage for perfect results. The skin-embracing texture becomes one with the face, following its every movement. Its Perfect Skin Affinity complex ensures a second-skin effect and perfect foundation hold for 15 hours.

At £36 I’ve been putting off buying this foundation especially since I’ve been so disappointed with so many high end foundations and nothing quite lives up to my Estee Lauder Double wear (that review will be up shortly).  This foundation goes on amazing. The consistency is what I expected I applied it using my fingers as it gives the best coverage in my opinion. Perfection Lumiere is medium/full coverage. The only problem is it’s a bit to matte for me.

This foundation has a fragrance to it which may put some people off, on the other hand after a couple of minutes the smell has faded. I loved the way this foundation made my skin look initially but it didn’t quite live up to its 15 hour wear. I applied this first thing in the morning and after 6/8 hours shine was coming through my T-zone. I then tried adding my beloved Estee Lauder primer and Mac skin finish powder which made the foundation last a couple of hours longer. You should probably know my face is VERY oily.

Though this foundation is perfect in so many ways but at £36 I don’t think I will be repurchasing it, it’s pricey and we shouldn’t have to give it a helping hand with primers and powders in my opinion. This foundation is perfect if you are however looking for lightweight, medium coverage.
