Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua - Believe the Hype!

If there is one foundation everyone has been raving about recently its the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra Light Skin Perfecting Make Up with SPF 15! It's been on everyones lips faces(?) for months now and with good reason. However if you haven't heard about this skin dream yet, fear not, the bandwagon is there to be jumped on!

I'm rather lucky in that I have fairly good skin, of course I do get the odd blemish but nothing to really complain about (althought I still will)! However, I do have a slightly uneven skin tone which is why a good foundation is one of the most important cosmetic items for me. I don't tend to like anything that's too high in coverage but at the same time, a tinted moisterier isn't going to cut it either (not on a day to day basis anyway). Therefore I'm always on the hunt for light to medium coverage foundations, preferably that are buildable so I can control the coverage I want from day to day! Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua is exactly that.

When I first heard about this foundation I thought it wouldn't have enough coverage for me as many people had been comparing it to a tinted moistieriser but when I finally decided to get colour matched at a Chanel counter I discovered this was not the case! Yes, it felt like a tinted moisterier (light as a feather on the skin) but worked like a foundation & it's buildable too! It made my skin look flawless, more so than any foundation I have ever used. It basically looked as if I wasn't wearing any make up & I just had perfect skin (I wish) & if all that wasn't enough, it smells phenomenal, like Piz Buin and holidays! I can't encourage people to try this foundation enough. Trust me, once you have you won't look back. 

Avaliable from all Chanel counters & Boots for £31
