Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation

Since foundation can truly transform the look of your skin, we certainly don’t judge anyone who’s willing to spend a lot on it. We tried Chanel’s latest foundation – Perfection Lumiere. At $55 it’s pricier then many of the foundations we review but we decided to give it a try. It has a very pleasant light fragrance which is a nice touch. Now, does it give you perfect skin like the model in the photo? We found that it does have a perfect mix of a natural finish with full coverage. In other words, you look like you’re not really wearing much makeup but your imperfections are covered. We think it’s most likely the finish to the makeup, which mimics the texture of skin (not too matte, not too dewy). Lumiere Foundation is also available in 20 shades, so more likely than not, they have a shade for you. This is a long-wearing foundation, but if you have oily skin, you may find this not to be so. This foundation doesn’t stop your face from being greasy. So if you have normal to dry skin, we think this is truly an amazing product! Also remember that department store makeup counters are happy to give samples (which is last for a few days to a week) so you can be completely sure before buying. If you have oily skin and want full coverage that lasts all day, we recommend Estee Lauder’s Doublewear foundation.  The only thing that stops it from being perfect is that it’s a bit drying, which is a good thing for oily skin.

    I haven’t tried this product yet and probably won’t since you stated in the review that its a bit drying. I already have dry skin and I have to add a little vaseline to my moisturizer everyday.

    Thanks for the thorough review & providing alternate suggestions. I’ll definitely ask for a sample first.

    Sounds like a good one even if it’s a tad expensive. I don’t want to have a caked on look so the fact that it mimics my skin’s texture is a plus

    I have wondered if it really gives the skin a glow. Bummed its a bit drying.

    This one isn’t drying at all, we thought Estee Lauder Double Wear was drying. They are both great foundations. Chanel does a pretty good job of giving a natural look.

    Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!
