A Holy-Grail Product: Chanel Vitalumiere Moisture-Rich Radiance Makeup Review+ Photos


Chanel Vitalumiere Moisture-Rich Radiance Makeup Review & Before and After

                 Some may remember me saying that Chanel Vitalumiere is a foundation that I adore. Since the very first day it came home with me I was in love with its formula, quality of wear and packaging. I don't know why it has taken me this long to finally write a review on this foundation but here it is. I have tried other foundations that have given me great results but I always come back to Vitalumiere when I want my skin to look and feel fresh, natural and pretty.

What it is: 
"The ultimate solution to tired skin, the best-selling CHANEL foundation now instantly revitalizes the complexion upon application and throughout the day. The formula has been updated with new ingredients to specifically target dry, dull and uneven skin, and moisturizing agents to provide hydration and comfort. A marine extracts boosts cell energy to enhance radiance and light-reflecting pigments smooth away imperfections, creating a soft-focus effect. Creamy and luxuriously lightweight, this essential daily foundation blends effortlessly for perfectly smooth, even-tones , radiant skin". -CHANEL

My Verdict: 
A foundation so perfect on you should look like second skin; soft and natural.
The creamy and light texture makes this foundation perfect for daily use. The moisture-rich formulation allows for comfort wear throughout the day plus skin that looks radiant and luminous. If your skin is dry and dull, Vitalumiere will help give your skin life and rejuvenation. 
Just moisturizer on the face except the eyes


Only a pump of Vitalumiere has been applied

Finished look including concealer and setting powder


How-to apply Vitalumiere:  The best tools for this are your fingers. Using my fingers gives me control and helps me blend the foundation evenly into every area of my face. The creamy consistency really helps it blend easily and effortlessly. From time to time I will pick up my foundation brush and use it to apply Vitalumiere, but since brushes tend to absorb foundations quicker, using my fingers would be my first preference. The finish is dewy and fresh so I set it with a loose powder to keep the look soft and for longer-lasting results.

    1. Yes it is always nice and lucky when you have found the foundation that can be worn everyday or on any special occasions. It really prevents me from buying too many foundations since I already have one I adore. Thank you for commenting :)

  3. great review, Anel! :)
    i have to point out though you have gorgeous skin to begin with, any foundation would look great on you. ;p
    i think i've heard as many good things about this foundation as the MUF HD foundation.
    i am so ready to invest in high-end foundation, this is surely on my list when the time is come.
    (but first, i have to use up what i have. T-T)

    1. Thank you so much for the lovely comment :) I have also heard many great things about the MUFE HD and I know it gives much more coverage than this one. I have always been curious to try it but I do not want to have too many foundations especially when you have a few you love. :)

  7. Thank you so much for the sweet comment on my blog! I'm following you now also :) I have vitalumiere, and I love it. The only thing is, I have pretty oily skin so I have to blot more when I wear it, but it does truly provide a stunning smooth complexion. Keep in touch! Looking forward to future posts!
