Chanel are launching their new compact foundation on the 6th April, as worn by the models at the Chanel show this season (above).
The foundation itself has quite a thick formula but despite its thick consistency, it blends on the skin really beautifully, covering any blemishes effectively and keeping the skins appearance balanced and even. Moreover, it's really long lasting and the finish isn't at all drying and instead the skin looks healthy, radiant and luminous and provides good coverage yet if you are only wearing a thin layer, it can also make skin look naturally flawless and glowing.
The packaging is great too, not only is it sleek and simple, it has a large mirror, and a protective lid.
It comes with a sponge but I would avoid using it as it does tend to absorb a lot of product and a brush can give a variety of different pay-off's, from a full coverage (foundation brush) to a very sheer but polished result (buffing/stippling brush).
If you like the original Vitalumière Aqua then you will love this new convenient way to carry it.
Let us know what you think.
Available nationwide from 6th April 2012.
