Today I`l be reviewing Chanel`s Perfection Lumiere Foundation, in 30 Beige. I`ve never been a big fan of foundation because I am a pretty low maintenance person when it comes to makeup and I never have enough time to put it on when I`m getting ready. But it was my birthday a few weeks ago so I decided to splurge on myself. :P Plus I absolutely love Chanel because their makeup is very high quality, so I thought there wasn`t that much to lose.
*The foundation looks super yellow in the picture but trust me, it`s not that yellow, it`s more neutral toned*
This foundation retails for about 55 dollars, and it comes in a frosted glass bottle. It features a black plastic pump that matches the cover. What I noticed about the pump is that it tends to leak a tiny bit after pumping out foundation. However it`s not terrible because the inside of the lid isn`t full of foundation.
It comes in over 20 shades, in both pink, neutral and yellow undertones. It dries down to a semi-matte, satin finish. It has a lovely smell that accompanies all Chanel makeup, but if you`re sensitive to smells then you might want to beware. The consistency of this foundation is quite thick, and as a result it`s medium coverage that could be full coverage if layered.
The Chanel lady told me that this foundation can be applied with a sponge or fingers. When I used my hands, I found that it was hard to blend out naturally and smooth down my peach fuzz. It was a bit difficult to blend because of the thickness of the foundation. However, one pump of foundation was enough to cover my entire face. As I mentioned before, this foundation dries down to a satin finish. I have quite oily skin, and it keeps my skin from getting too shiny throughout the day. However I still needed to powder once or twice while wearing it. This foundation also didn`t want to mix in with my foundation lol. I use the Nivea daily moisturizer, which is thick but spreads out very easily. When I tried mixing them, it was like oil and water. Maybe it was just because of the differing consistencies.
Overall, I would recommend this foundation for moderately oily skin, but not super oily skin. It would also work for normal skin, but I don`t think it would suit dry skin since it does cling onto slightly drier patches of skin. It has a fragrance to it, so be wary if you`re sensitive to fragrances. It`s quite thick as well. If you`re used to foundations, then you won`t mind it, but if you don`t typically wear foundation then you won`t enjoy it. Either way, this foundation looks great on a vanity table lol.
Thanks for reading!
