After a week of earthquakes, hurricanes, and tornados (who knew all this could be on the East Coast!) I am back!  As promised here is my full review of Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua after wearing it for two months.

Quick Reference List:
Price: $45 for 1 oz.
My shade: BR20 (Tendre)
Applied with: Fingers (have used brush, not a noticeable difference)
Coverage: Light
Scent: Fresh scent.  It fades after awhile
Break-outs: None for me
Quick tips: Shake well, be careful when squeezing the tube, and don't over apply.
Grade: 4/5
Repurchase: For summer, maybe.  For other months, no.
The key thing to remember about this foundation is that it is ultra-light coverage.  If you are looking for more coverage, this is not for you.  For this reason, I would not purchase this as my every day foundation.  I've enjoyed it for summer a lot because I feel like my skin can "breathe" beneath it.  However, during fall or even when I have work events, I like fuller coverage that this foundation just can't give.

I feel like my skin does look nice with this foundation.  It looks healthy.  I have combination skin in the summer.  I get oily in certain spots when it's this hot out, but I never felt I looked oily in the foundation.  I'm not sure how it would fair if you have very oily skin as I have not tested it.  Normally my skin is on the dryer side, but in the summer, that's when I get oily. It also has SPF 15, which isn't enough if you are spending a lot of time outside, but if you are just in and out quickly, it at least has that.
The packaging is a squeeze bottle which I was not a fan of.  I always felt like I was squeezing out way too much and at that price, you don't want to waste it! Also, make sure to shake well (there is a shaker ball inside) because if you don't the foundation doesn't mix and you will have a watery mess.
Here's two shots of my skin after applying the foundation using no primer or concealer and applying only with fingers.  I do like the finger application b/c it's easy and quick (just make sure you have clean hands!).  It's convenient especially if you want to travel and not tote around make up brushes.

Overall, it's very pricey and it's nice, but I'm more of a medium to full coverage gal except for summer.  So, I don't see myself repurchasing it again soon.  Plus, it's a wallet hitter at $45, but if you do have the disposable income to spend for it, it is a good product for light coverage, but healthy, natural looking skin.


  1. the light coverage is what keeps me from trying this. I'm a heavy coverage girl XD. btw, your skin looks great!

  2. wow nice review, the product sound really nic^^ but same i am for of a heavy but it looks nice even with primer and conclear.
