When I think of Chanel the first thing that comes to mind is Glamour, Chic, Classic. I’ve heard so many great things about Chanel and their cosmetics line but the price point was a little scary for me. Finally, I decided to treat myself for my birthday and splurged on this foundation. I was also gifted a Chanel lipstick and lip liner! I felt like such a princess and couldn’t wait to go home and try it. I was originally going to film a first impressions video for it but I just couldn’t wait to use it.
After a few uses, I decided I had finally come to a conclusion about this foundation. Simply put – Amazing!
Where Can You Purchase? Chanel.com, Nordstrom, Macy’s, & any other Chanel Counters.
Chanel Claims: “Effortless to apply, with seamless blendability for a naturally flawless effect, this breakthrough foundation is the ideal all-day, everyday formula – available in a diverse range of 20 shades.” – Chanel.com
Packaging: The bottle is so luxurious I absolutely love it. I keep it on the top of my vanity just because it looks so glamorous. It is packaged in a thick glass bottle and the best part – it has a pump! Foundations with pumps are my best friends so I’m super happy this one comes with one!
Consistency: Very Creamy but feels super light on the skin. I use a Beauty Blender to apply and it literally melts into my skin which is amazing. It does have a scent to it so if you are sensitive to that this may not be the foundation for you. The scent is very strong almost like perfume.
Coverage: this is more of a medium- full coverage foundation. I definitely think it can become cakey if not applied properly or if adding too much. Like mentioned before, I like to use my Beauty Blender with this foundation because I believe it helps the foundation spread evenly.
Finish: This foundation is definitely a matte finish, so if you have dry skin this may not be your favorite. I usually wear this for nighttime use since its full coverage and matte. I like to use it when I’m doing intense makeup looks. Definitely not good if you like a minimal natural finish.
Overall: I am obsessed with this foundation. I truly believe it lasts all day long and does not move at all. It gives flawless coverage just like Chanel claims. The only downfall is that it does have SPF in it and although it’s just a little bit it definitely gives a small white cast in photos. Also, The color range is more geared towards lighter skin tones so it was quite difficult to find the perfect match for me (I bought mine in the color 64 Beige Ambre). Not sure if girls with darker skin than me will be able to find the perfect match.
