I think if I had to choose the most important item in one's beauty bag it would be foundation. You have to get the base right or all else fails. I have been extensively testing
Chanel Vitalumière's Aqua Compact ($58) and have been LOVING the results. I usually stick to liquid foundations, but this cream formula gives a truly flawless finish with a lightweight feel. It does come with a sponge which is great for touch-ups on the go, but I prefer it buffed onto the skin with a Real Techniques Expert Face Brush($8.99) The foundation takes away redness, evens skin tone, and gives the skin a dewy finish. I love that you can use this foundation just in areas where you want a little coverage or you can build it up. The one thing I think is important to note is that you need to use a good moisturizer before applying, so that the foundation can easily slip over the skin. I noticed that on dry areas of the face, there could be a little creasing, but with moisturizer it corrected the problem. Final thoughts:
- I love the feel and finish of this foundation - gorgeous!
- The compact is convenient and portable.
