Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation Review part 2

Last week I reviewed the Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation in 20 Beige and I was left disappointed. It looked chalky, highlighted my dry skin and by lunchtime my skin was shiny and the foundation had disappeared from my face.

This weekend I tried my other sample the kind SA gave me. Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation in 22 Beige Rose. This time the colour is abit more of a pinky tone. When I put the foundation on the back of my hand i was impressed with the colour. I found the 20 Beige abit too yellow but this seem to be suit my colouring more. Again the fragrance was lovely and it blended well when  applied to my face. Unlike the previous sample this did not appear chalky. It provided a lovely smooth finish.

At lunch time I went and checked in the mirror. I sighed just before I look as I was expecting my skin to appear shiny and my Make-Up gone. BUT when I looked in the mirror I was amazed. My Make-Up looked like I had just applied it. No shiny face!! It was completely different to the previous sample. I was soooo happy!!

The only negative thing I can say about the foundation is that is didn't provide full coverage which I would prefer. I did have to apply more concealer than usual to my blemishes. 

So have I changed my mind about buying this foundation. Yes I have!! I feel if I wanted to change my current foundation I would gladly swap to this one. 

Has anyone tried this foundation and what did you think? Let me know :) xx


  1. I havent tried this foundation, but I really want to after all the reviews!

    1. I would definitely recommend getting a test sample this first before buying it. The 2 samples I tried were completely different :) xx

  2. I have thought about trying a Chanel foundation, but I just feel a little weird about Chanel make-up because I always think of clothes when Chanel is mentioned.. A little like H&M make-up, I don't really want to try it because I'm scared that I get some big breakout. (I know it's wrong to compare Chanel with H&M). :P

    1. Yeah I know what you about Chanel make-up and clothes. I have never thought about their make-up range until i started reading really good reviews about it. Definitely get a sample of this foundation first before buying it as it seems to work for some and not others :) xx
