30 Day Blog Challenge: My Favourite Foundation

I am a huge fan of YouTube gurus FleurDeForce and missglamorazzi and after watching many favourites and foundation routine videos by Fleur and the most recent “The BEST Foundation I’ve Ever Used” video by Ingrid (missglamorazzi) I have been desperate to try Chanel’s Vitalumiere Aqua foundation.

Last week I headed over to my local Chanel counter for a sneaky swatch and in hope of taking home a sample try. It must have been the bright lights or the images of the infamous interlocking “CCs” but the next thing I know, I was seated in the chair with the Chanel assistant giving me a mini makeover (I wasn’t complaining, she did a great job) and left with a luminescent complexion and my very own Vitalumiere Aqua foundation.

As you would expect, this was a pricy foundation and I purchased it for $77 from Myer, however it is a gorgeous foundation. Feeling light on the skin, this foundation offers a great coverage without the need to pack it on – less is actually more. It leaves your skin beautifully dewy (without the oily feeling) and is very durable as its stays put throughout the day.

This post is Day 4 of my 30 Day Blog Challenge; click here to view my introduction.


  1. I would love to try this. It is rather pricey tho. What exactly is the coverage? xo

  2. Do the Chanel counters at Myer or DJ's offer samples of Vitalumiere Aqua?

  3. @Chachi they do, but unfortunatly they didnt have a sample in my colour.. The assistant gave me a few other samples to try like eye cream, serum and facial cream that are really nice aswell.

    @Crosswire Dreamers I would say it would be about a medium coverage (compaired to Revlon ColourStay as a full coverage) but don't be fooled by the name "Aqua" as the coverage gives a really nice natural finish, I have light freckles that cover nicely. I'll see if I can do some before and after pictures over the weekend.. And I'll get a post up about Nude because I really like that aswell :)

    Thankyou for your comments xx

  4. Oh~I love to watch their videos too! I really want to try out the foundation. Thanks for the review!
