Chanel Haul Vitalumiere Aqua Perfection Lumiere Velvet Le Blanc De Chanel Haul L'amour Josie
After a particularly disappointing shopping trip last week, I found myself at the Chanel counter with the urge to make a purchase (conveniently forgetting the dosh I'd just shelled out on an Illamasqua order). I've been rather absent from the blogging world lately, but I couldn't help but notice the hype around a couple of Chanel products. After a quick swatch, three hefty purchases were made...

Firstly, with my much loved bottle of Vitalumiere Aqua foundation standing on its last legs, a repurchase was definitely in order. I've lost count of the amount of bottles of this stuff that I've gone through, but it's my fail-safe foundation for any skin day. Vitalumiere Aqua leaves you with a flawless, glowing complexion - if you're after light to medium coverage and a healthy finish, look no further.

The other two items were both new to me, although I'd read some great reviews of Le Blanc De Chanel. I definitely haven't used this enough times to offer my verdict yet, but so far although I'm not crazy on the consistency, I love the scent of this product and my foundation definitely sits nicer on top of it. Last but not least is the Perfection Lumiere Velvet foundation. This seems to be the easier to wear big sister of Vitalumiere Aqua; the shades all correspond, but I find that PLV offers a slightly more buildable coverage and more matte finish. Although it's not stolen VLA's crown yet, this is a lovely foundation and great for every day wear. Now, it's definitely time to get on that spending ban...


  1. Lovely products! I've really been wanting the Perfection Lumiere Velvet foundation (with my oily skin I was too scared to ever try out the Vitalumiere Aqua) and I've tried a sample which was nice, but I'm not used to such a natural coverage. I like natural coverage, especially with warm weather around the corner, but my skin really needs more coverage so I don't know if I'll be splurging on the foundation just yet.

  2. The Perfection Lumiere Velvet sounds pretty great actually. I prefer a natural coverage and a matte finish... yes please ^^

  5. too bad about some of the products! I've been using Chanel's Le Left creme, which smells amazing and is great for nighttime. I've heard amazing things about the foundation!

  6. I've heard so many amazing things about the Vitalumiere Aqua, but I've never tried it.
