There’s just something luxurious about Chanel makeup, isn’t there?
I always stop at the Chanel makeup counter whenever I’m at a department store. It’s just one of those brands that lures you in with it’s minimal, beautiful display. Personally, it’s a brand that I’ve always wanted to get my hands on since I was a teenager falling in love with makeup. They have several products that are still on my wish list, but for now, I’m happy to finally own the Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet Foundation. I’ve lusted after it for years!
Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet Foundation
I’ve wanted this foundation for at least over 2 years now, but I’ve just always gotten sidetracked by other beauties. But, alas, it’s finally mine. Not all Chanel products are worth the splurge, but is this one worth the money or the hype?
I have combo skin and found this foundation to apply really smoothly and evenly without looking cakey. It has a medium finish so it does even out your skin tone, but it’s not completely full coverage. It has a velvety semi-matte finish, which is my go to during the fall/winter, so it’s not completely matte and flat. I had a few dry patches when I first wore this, and it did cling to them a bit. It didn’t look horrendous, but if you have dry patches or flaky skin then this foundation probably isn’t the best one for you.
It lasted about 7-8 hours on my skin before I noticed fading so the wear time on this was really nice. If you’re sensitive to scents then I wouldn’t suggest this one. It does have a slight powdery floral scent when you first open the bottle and apply it. But, it doesn’t last long nor is it noticeable through out the day.
Of course the packaging is gorgeous. It comes in a plastic black rectangular bottle, but it’s still very sleek. It’s so tiny that it seems like it may not have much product, but you do get a full ounce of product, which is standard.
Overall, I really love this foundation! It looks beautiful on the skin and is definitely worth the splurge and the hype!
