Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet Review

(I wear the shade #10)

I am about to make the biggest call in the world right now... but I think I have found my HG foundation! I KNOW RIGHT!! I would like to introduce to you guys, the Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet! I was really unsure of this foundation just because I heard that it's not that great for dry skin but I decided to give it a try anyway because I've never found a Chanel foundation that I didn't like and honestly, this was no exception. I did find that I didn't need to set this foundation with powder as it set matte and powdery already on my skin but that just means that I finish doing my makeup in less time, who would complain about that? 

Pros:
  • Makes the skin look amazingly soft and smooth
  • Sets matte so I don't have to add powder
  • Smells lovely 
  • Perfect colour match for me
  • Makes blending my concealer a breeze because it does have such a nice, smooth finish
  • Didn't emphasize pores or dry patches
  • Wears really nicely throughout the day
  • It does have some SPF (I still always use more sunscreen on top because I live in Australia)
  • Feels super lightweight and like you're not wearing any foundation at all
Cons:
  • Expensive 
Overall thought: As you can see, I couldn't think of anything bad with this foundation other than the price, hence why I think that it is my HG foundation. If you see the photos below, you can see how smooth my skin looks and this is with no photoshopping on my behalf! It just gives such a lovely finish to the skin and I am absolutely OBSESSED with this foundation! (10/10)

  17. This foundation looks flawless on you!
    I love that it doesn't look matte to the point that it looks flat. I love the Chanel Vita-lumière but I am seriously intrigued by this! The black packaging is so elegant too!
