Chanel Vita Lumiere Aqua

Hello Lovelies! 

I made a bit of a naughty purchase. The Chanel Vita Lumiere Aqua foundation has been something I have been lusting after for quite awhile now after hearing nothing but rave reviews about it over and over again. I never really got the chance to get to a Chanel counter to get colour matched, but the other day I randomly came across one and impulse bought. I am happy to report back that I definitely am not suffering from buyers remorse! I am absolutely in love with this foundation and I don't want to speak too soon but I think we could be talking Holy Grail status here.

I found it to be quite similar to another one of my favourites Bourjois Healthy Mix, but with a few differences. This foundation is incredibly lightweight, it literally feels like you have nothing on your skin but don't let that fool you. I really wasn't expecting much coverage from the foundation with the word Aqua in the name but I would say it is medium build-able coverage. It gives a very natural look to the skin, not too dewy and not too matte - a very healthy satin finish. It glides on to the skin and blends seamlessly into the skin. It doesn't cling to any dry patches or leave an obvious layer of make-up on top of your skin. I've used both my brushes and fingers to apply this and I am happy to say that it worked amazingly well with both. The packaging is also really really cute. Very compact and light-weight so it is perfect for popping into your make up bag or for travelling.

Admittedly this was a bit of a splurge but in my opinion completely worth it, I would definitely repurchase this over and over again!

Have you tried Vita Lumiere Aqua? What are your thoughts? My shade is 10 Beige and it is available online here


  1. I haven't tried it, but I use Chanel mascara and blusher and it's well worth every penny! I'd maybe ask for it for a birthday or Christmas present though to save my pennies a little bit, haha :)
    Thanks for the review - it's good to know that its so lightweight but still gives good coverage :)
    Keep in touch!

  7. If they have a shade that is light enough for my very pale skin then it may be worth checking out, especially since it doesn't cling to dry patches! Thanks for the review!
