Well, here it is! The product everyone has been talking about. I now know why everyone has been talking about it. I have fallen in love with this foundation. It’s description says it is for all skin types (I have normal to oily skin) hydrating silky texture and buildable coverage and that is exactly what it is. I will not lie the first time I put it on I hated it but that is because I was not used to this type of texture in a foundation, I usually wear fully matte. The second time I used it, I applied it carefully and let it sink in and instantly I saw a difference. I now love it and find myself only using this foundation every morning. I am currently trying different combinations with and without primers. Right now I am loving the Rimmel Stay Matte Primer with it, who would have thought a drugstore primer paired with a high end foundation.
If you have seen this talked about as much as I have. I just made the plunge to buy it, you should too! I don’t want to get addicted to such a high end foundation, but that might be what’s going to happen.
This is a beautiful cream-gel bronzer that has a velvety finish, as the Chanel site says and that is exactly what it is. I am a very pale person, so I was hesitant to purchase a bronzer but I heard so many good reviews about this product. Since summer is approaching I decided to just go for it. In the summer I don’t like to wear foundation and I don’t necessarily need to because I get some color from the sun, but I just wanted a little something extra for the summer. So, this is it! I like that it is cream based because it can lay on the skin better for summer. It is also very bendable and you can build up the product to your liking (as you see above: the top swatch is blended and the bottom swatch is not blended). Another thing that is good about this product it lasts forever. When I bought it at the Chanel counter the lady said you will have this for a long time, it’t a good investment piece to have in your makeup collection.
