Worth every Penny
Amazing formula as to be expected from Chanel, but wow oh wow. This stuff is magic in a bottle. To those who are not familiar with Chanel products, they are heavily scented, so if you don't like that, do not invest the $50 on this product. Anyway, it is water-based and should not be applied with anything but the fingers (at your discretion) this worked best for me. It blends better than almost every foundation I've ever tried and looks very natural and even. For those who are scared about the price, it honestly is worth it. The difference in quality from this to any drugstore foundation is unbelievable. You don't need much, and in the long run you'll probably spend more on multiple products trying to find one that performs as well as this.
Worth the Splurge
I walked over to Chanel while I was in Nordstrom about three months ago because I had seen so many tweets and YouTube videos about this foundation. When I first got matched, I thought that this color was WAY too pink (12 Beige Rose) but it actually brings out the life in my skin and makes it look radiant. There really isn't a very strong smell that I notice, and it feels absolutely weightless. I would definitely recommend this product.
I was introduced to this lightweight foundation and it smells really great! I was quite hesitant because of the price and it comes in a small bottle. It lasts me for 4-5 months and when used with a foundation brush, it has this 'glow' to it. However, its more suitable for people who really love the au naturel, 'dewy' look and doesn't have much coverage if you're looking for a foundation that is able to cover spots. :) xx
I went to the Chanel counter thinking I would treat myself to a very expensive blush, but of course the makeup artist decided I needed my whole face done. I cannot thank him enough, he used this foundation on me and it is lovely. The coverage is a relatively sheer, but it is very pretty. I also have to mention the fact that it smells absolutely amazing, apricot something. Also, as far as Chanel products go it is not really that expensive. I think it was worth it the splurge .
Go to Foundation
This is my go to foundation. I tried it because I watched a few people review it, and I am so happy I seen the reviews. It goes on easy and blends so nice. It isn't rough, it doesn't crack. Your face will look smooth :)
MY MOST EXPENSIVE FOUNDATION
First time spending so much on something that we use almost daily, was quite hesitant at first but realize that I wouldn't know how it is like if I didn't try so I decided to get it. I've been using it for quite sometime now and I still love it! It blends extremely well, smell nice and it has a very good consistency. Of course not forgetting the coverage, although it doesn't give full coverage but it's enough coverage for me so I really really recommend this!
My Favorite Foundation EVER!
LOVE LOVE LOOOOOVE this foundation! It feels like you don't have anything on your face and it covers so well! It's a creamy consistency and blends so easily! I have dry skin and this still leaves such a gorgeous luminous finish! I definitely feel it's worth the price!
Best liquid foundation ever!
I have used liquid foundations in the past (usually Dior or Elizabeth Arden) but nothing compares to this! My tone is beige and it matches my skin almost exactly. It glides on seamlessly and doesn't seem to clog my pores. It is very light weight and moisturizing. The only downside is that you have to give it a good shake before applying because it comes out like oily water otherwise. Smells pleasant. Would definitely recommend.
NB. My skin type is more dry than oily nowadays.
Everyday Makeup Staple
This product is just amazing. So incredibly natural and light because of the watery texture, it makes it really easy to use everyday. My pores tend to clog quite quickly so I know right away what products I can and cannot use on a daily bases, but I can use this foundation 7 days a week without clogged pores or breakouts. The coverage is quite sheer, but it evens out my skintone as if it really were my natural skin. It gives off a gorgeous, slightly dewy look, so if you have overly oily skin, I would say skip this even though it is water based. I do still have to use concealer over it, but not nearly as heavily. Oh and the smell is HEAVENLY!
The only thing you should be aware of is if you have dry, flaky skin it'll show because of the light and sheer texture. I noticed in the winter months I had to make sure I was well moisturized on my skin because it tended to exacerbate any flakiness or dryness.
I've purchased ONE bottle and it has lasted over a year, and I still have a ton of it left. Sheer, dewy, gorgeous finish. You can get more coverage if you keep adding to it. I use this with Chanel's Longwear Concealer and people never think I have makeup on. It's also super hydrating for my dry skin and never flakes. Just remember to shake the bottle before using!
