After finishing my Givenchy foundation I was going to re-purchase it but Chanel had brought out a new foundation, which appeared very similar to what Givenchy were offering. I thought I would purchase Chanel's Perfection Lumiere foundation and try it out. My first few times I really could not stop comparing it to Givenchy's Eclat Matissime.
This foundation feels really light on my skin. This is both good and bad. The pro is that it barely feels there but the con is that I feel the formula is a little watery. Unfortunately, because of this I do find that by the end of the day when I look in the mirror, the foundation has lost it's staying power and you can really see my imperfections.
I love how easy it is to blend into my skin. The colour that I chose does look a little dark but it blends in beautifully and compliments my skin tone.
I would definitely say that the best thing about this product is the sleek and compact bottle. It's light and no fuss making, which makes it perfect for easy storage and travelling.
Overall I did have hight hopes for this product but I found it average and I won't be purchasing it again because, for me, it simply does not provide long lasting coverage.
Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet Foundation in Beige 30 £33. Available to purchase here from Boots.
