Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Chit Chat !

Hey Everyone!
I'm sorry I'm going to be absent from blogger for a week, as I'm flying out to Spain tonight. I'm really excited especially when there is bright sunshine all week. I'm going for a late birthday meal with my parents at this absolutely stunning location, I can't wait to share the pictures already!.
I have been itching to talk about this product, I'm going to be giving more of an initial thoughts kind of review, because I have only been using it a week so far. I will do a follow up review probably in a few weeks, just to let you all know how I'm getting along with this product.



Initial thoughts ?
My first ever Chanel foundation was the Teint innocence compact by Chanel and I loved it, so when Chanel released a compact of my current favourite "Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Liquid Foundation" I was VERY excited to try it. I love the chunky Chanel compact packaging, because it's really sturdy and great for having in your handbag. 

Coverage ?
I would say that this foundation is very adjustable because it's cream texture lends it to different coverages. Firstly, I apply this foundation with a synthetic stippling brush, and it gives a light-medium airbrushed coverage. However, if you use the sponge it will put the foundation on your skin at quite a heavy medium coverage.

Comparison to the liquid Vitalumiere Aqua ?
The obvious difference between these products is the texture. I would say the the liquid version gives a lighter coverage, but at the same time it is build-able. The cream version is basically the same in my eyes, it just gives a higher coverage in my opinion. I still feel like it gives you the same vitalised look as the liquid version, I like both very much. However, I don't think you need both unless you have a healthy budget to spare.

Cons ?
The price! It's almost £40.00, and I'm sure the liquid is around £30-32. I would say that is the main issue in my eyes, and maybe the fact that the liquid could be mixed with a moisturiser. Apart from that I'm actually preferring the compact to the liquid version, and it has better staying power than the liquid in my opinion.

Love

    1. Hey Tali
      I'm really liking it, I find it gives a bit more coverage than the liquid. I also find a stippling brush works well, as the sponge it comes with soaks up so much of the foundation ! Xxxx
