Chanel Vitalumière Aqua Compact Review

Good morning! Back to the real world after a nice Spring Break for me. Sad, but I was getting a bit itchy and needed my schedule back in my life. I hope you all are having a great start to the week!


Today I'm really excited to review the new Chanel foundation compact! I purchased this compact a few weeks ago for my prom as I wanted a heavier foundation for photography that would last the whole night. I had the intentions of going to the Chanel counter to get the Vitalumière Aqua liquid foundation, but the lady convinced me to go for the new compact. 




Beautifully packaged, the foundation is actually a cream formula, something I had never tried but was excited to give a go. The foundation comes with a sponge applicator, but I have not used the sponge, instead applying the product with a foundation brush. The finish is flawless, but definitely a heavy coverage; not a medium as I believe it is packaged as. 






I am in the shade B20, and as sad as it is, that was my shade after tanning with St Tropez. I am so pale it's crazy. Despite that, it is the perfect shade for me. 





I am very much in love with this product, and it is something I would definitely repurchase. However, it does have a hefty price tag. I purchased this foundation for $58, plus tax. Woah. Once I got over the sticker shock, I knew I still wanted to use this product and I'm glad that I did. I do believe a good portion of the price is due to the huge packaging that the foundation comes in. As beautiful as it is, I would definitely downsize the packaging to bring the price down a bit. 

All in all, though, even though the price is high, this product is great and I would recommend this to anyone looking for a heavier foundation. Would you spend this much on a foundation? What's the most expensive beauty item you have ever purchased, and did you regret it?

  3. I've got the liquid version of this and it gives a really light coverage so I'm glad you've done this review. Now I know that the compact is a heavier coverage! Thanks :)
