REVIEW: Chanel Pro Lumiere Foundation

5 years ago

About a year ago, I wanted to experiment with foundations, both high-end and drugstore. I wanted to see if I can find my Holy Grail (HG) of foundations; something that I can use for the rest of my life because it`s just absolutely perfect. During my hunt, I happened upon a national event by Chanel at my Nordstrom, and the lead makeup artist there (I assumed he was well-known because his face was the one shown on the flyers and the posters) saw me and said he wants to do my makeup. I was hesitant at first, but it`s free so I thought, why not?

- perfect match on my NC30 skin (shade: Cendre-Shell)
- lasted all day (even throughout my hospital shifts)
- did not require too much product to cover my whole face (half a pump was all I needed)
- did not break me out
- photographs well
- medium to full coverage

- has limited shades
- can be quite sticky
- can sometimes have that "thick" feeling even if it doesn`t look like it
- now discontinued

<strong><em>Thoughts:</strong></em> I really like this foundation. It matched my skin so well that the first night I tried taking it off with my cleansing wipes, I kept rubbing my face thinking it wasn`t coming off, until I realized I was already trying to rub my skin off! It blended so seamlessly to my skin. This also has a dewy finish so I sometimes felt like my skin was too oily and cakey, even if it wasn`t. I didn`t like that feeling at all despite the foundation looking quite nice on the skin.

<strong><em>My Verdict:</em></strong> Unfortunately, this wasn`t my HG. Even though they said this was good for combo/oily gals like me, it was too "oily" for my liking. If this sounds like the foundation you`re looking for, I`m sorry but it`s <em>discontinued.</em> Chanel has replaced it with <em>Perfection Lumiere</em> which I have not yet tried.

<strong>Did anyone else get to try this product?</strong>
