chanel vitalumiere aqua foundation in 10 beige & chanel rouge allure velvet in l’infidele.
this foundation is so wonderful. to be honest, I did not believe the hype, but loads of people that I normally agree with on youtube were saying how brilliant it is, so I went & got a sample. & then another sample. so I finally cracked & went into the pop-up chanel store in covent garden to pick it up. it smells so luxurious, feels so wonderful & my sensitive skin loves it. it has plenty coverage for me, but I am pale & have fairly good skin, so it may not be like that for everyone. it’s hydrating, but has a matte finish since there is apparently powder within it & leaves my skin very, very soft. it basically feels airbrushed. so nice.
as for the lipstick, this is apart of the fashion night out twin set that chanel put out. I really don’t follow makeup collections, but when I was getting the foundation, I swatched this & fell in love. I left the shop, went to my class & googled loads of reviews & then went back to buy it a few hours later. yup. I’m crazy. it’s wonderfully matte, without being too drying (which I have a problem with normally). the colour is pretty unique, I think. most reviews I’ve seen that have given dupes don’t seem to be that true, in my opinion. at any rate, I don’t have anything like this. very excited to have a nice lipstick to wear on a day to day basis (my other chanel is a classic red that I bought in paris - gorgeous but not for everyday). x
