Our All Time Favourite Foundation

From all the foundations we have tried, there is no doubt that the Chanel Perfection Lumiere tops the charts for us. This year we did discover the Giorgio Armani luminous silk foundation which is still absolutely amazing but the perfection lumiere just has that extra special 'something', which is why it remains to this day, the unbeatable reigning champion in our eyes.

Lets start with the coverage - this foundation gives a medium coverage, with potential to be full, as it definitely has that buildable factor. I find it covers redness in my skin really well (partiulalry on those rough skin days) and manages to even out the skin tone effortlessly. I love the finish this foundation leaves which is a sort of semi-matt - not too dewy and not completely matt either, just the perfect balance which is wearable on a daily basis.

Moving on to application, the Chanel Perfection Lumiere has no trouble easily gliding onto the skin, and meshing with your own complexion giving a very 'skin' like finish. The real techniques buffing brush works a dream in applying this foundation - one pump gives a nice even layer over the face, however if we're after that extra bit of coverage, we like use the real techniques expert face brush, which leaves skin looking close to flawless! When it comes to staying power, this foundation has got your back. I've worn it at times early in the morning and it has lasted me all day, without any touchups.

Packaging wise you can't go wrong with Chanel - you have your glass bottle with a pump which I know some foundations don't come with and can be a real nightmare! Also Chanel products never fail to smell good, including this foundation, it just smells so nice! - added bonus right?

Now to the downside, with the £36 price tag, it certainly doesn't come cheap when to comes to foundations. But seeing as it is one of our favourite foundations it is definitely worth the investment.
