    I bought this foundation almost a year ago at the airport in Nice, and I’ve been using it ever since alternatively with Estée Lauder Maximum Cover Camouflage Makeup and Yves Saint Laurent- Teint Resist. I usually never wear one single foundation; i like mixing different shades and create my own combination :)
    I have uneven skin tone so foundation is an absolute must for me; Like mascara or morning coffee for some people:) (I’m not though a OOC narcissist that has to wear make up every single time she leaves the house ^^ )

    * First and foremost, this is a foundation for dry or mature skin; to people with oily or combination skin, you would better stay away from this, if you don’t want to look like a big shiny disco ball.

    * It’s extremely moisturizing to be used in the winter, and it doesn’t clog my pores.
    * What I like the most about Vitalumiere is that it makes look refreshed and well-rested.
    * The coverage is light/medium, very even and it gives you a glowy, satin look.
    * I apply it with my fingers ( I’m just that lazy in the morning), but normally I would apply this with a brush for a more “airbrushed”-dewy-look; afterwards, I blend it slowly with my fingers so that the foundation melts into my under-eye wrinkles and pores.
    * It does come off on almost everything (in the first hour or so), so I usually wait for the product to dry and then gently tap the skin with a napkin to take the shine off.
    * It’s finish and texture is flawless and it photographs so well, that I will give this a 4/5.The price bites ( 42 Euros) but then again, with Chanel you pay for quality & you see where your money goes.

    PS: For the winter I mix my Chanel Vitalumière (I have it in no 30- Cendré/Shell) with Estée Lauder Maximum Cover Camouflage Makeup( 03 Light/Medium). Simply. Flawless.

    Hope you all have a wonderful year!!♥
