Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation Review

Hi guys!

Today I wanted to do a review of the foundation I am loving at the moment Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua. I brought it back in the summer and have been using it since.
I will start by saying what type of skin I have which is oily-combination. I use to have bad acne but at the moment my skin is clearing up. I have some acne scars and also big pores around my nose and redness on my cheeks. I have pale skin and I have always gone for matte full coverage foundations so because of this i have found it hard to get a foundation that is pale and matte enough but not make me look dead. I use to wear Estee Lauder double wear but I wanted to take advantage of my skin being clearer and use a lighter foundation.

Chanel says: A new-generation texture. An unprecedented sensory experience. A unique makeup result. Rapid and easy application. Apply your makeup without thinking about it. Its soft and evanescent ultra-fine fluid texture is a real surprise: although exceptionally delicate and light, it offers an incomparable “second-skin”perfecting result. The complexion appears amazingly even, fresh and energised. The skin glows with seemingly nude beauty. As if lit from within. Bathed in light…

I am the lightest shade, b10 (beige-pastel). It is a water based foundation which has light to medium coverage. It doesn’t cover everything for me and I do have to use a bit of concealer to cover a few scars here and there so if you have really bad acne or scaring or I would get a fuller coverage foundation.

It has a natural finish, not to glowy and not to matte. The foundation feels light and so soft on the skin and blends in easily and smoothly. It doesn’t need setting powder but i do use one sometimes and it doesn't end up looking cakey. It last for about 8 hours on me.

Even though the foundation has spf 15 I find that it doesn’t affect photos to much. I personally like the packaging and the fact that it is not In a glass bottle because you don’t have to worry about smashing it and wasting all the product (yep,I have done this before). It cost £31 but a little bit goes a long way so in my opinion it is totally worth it.

Have u tried foundation this foundation, what do you think?

I have wanted Barry M cobalt blue for a while now but it is always out of stock. I finally got my hands on it today from Superdrug and as soon as I got home I had to apply it.
Cobalt blue (#291) is a creamy royal blue, I have on one coat with no base. It applies lovely with no streaks and is shiny enough that you don’t even need a top coat.

 *Please excuse my horrible fingernails they are not the best at the moment .
Barry m are such good quality they have such a wide range of colours, they last long without chipping and so inexpensive at only £2.99.

I have been trying to decide what to do for my first post and then whilst browsing Missguided website i found these shoes
As I am little obsessed with shoes (OK ill admit it I am addicted) I thought it would be fitting that it is my first post =]
So here they are:

I have been wanting a pair of Litas for a while but just cant afford them so when i saw these beauties on www.missguided.co.uk and for only 40.99 I was sold.
They also have the Lita inspired shoe in different colours and designs
