This is one of the most requested reviews. I have been using this foundation for over a year now. I bought this one just before my wedding as one of the trousseau products. I thought I could use it for the small home functions when I don’t have a makeup artist coming. What made me buy it immediately was that the SA told me it is oil free and long lasting.
What Chanel says about the product:
“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.”
This Chanel foundation comes in a 30 ml glass bottle, with a pump. The best part about Chanel products is the choice of shades. I have the shade 30 Beige which is a perfect match for me. I take two pumps of the foundation on my hand and apply it with my beauty blender. It blends beautifully on to my skin. It does not mattify my skin but does balance out the oil that is there – my skin is combination oily. The coverage is medium to full. You can easily build up the coverage. It still looks very natural on my face. The staying power impressed me, it lasts a very long time. Inspite of having SPF 10, it photographs very well with flash on.
The one thing I dont like about the product is that it has a light fruity fragrance. I don’t like base products that have any sort of fragrance. But overall I quite love this foundation and I am dreading that it is getting over, because it is an expensive product.
