Perfection indeed

Good afternoon!

Today's foundation is Chanel Perfection Lumiere, and it lives up to it's name!
 I used to use only Chanel Vitalumiere foundation because I loved the "dewy" look it gave my skin.  My roommate at the time loved it as well (you know who you are!) and we would go around complementing each other skin all day.  Well as I have gotten older I prefer more of a matte finish and Chanel's Perfection Lumiere delivers moderate coverage with just the right dose of light.

Chanel describes the product as "Effortless to apply, with seamless blendability for a naturally flawless effect, this breakthrough foundation is the ideal all-day, everyday formula – suitable for all skin types in a diverse range of 20 shades."  It is one of the most dead on product descriptions I've come across.  I always read the full product description after I test the product so I don't have any pre-conceived ideas.  My first thought when putting this on was "This is so easy to apply!"  through the day I looked in the mirror and though it was "a great everyday formula".  I'm so happy when a company does not over promise on their products. One drawback is it is only SPF 10.  It is a natural looking foundation and you would need concealer for any extra redness or under eye circles, but this is looking like it may fall into the top 3 foundations on my list! Which are by the way...
#1Teint Idole Ultra (Lancome) $42
#2 Chanel Perfection Lumiere $55
#3 Physcian's Formula SPF 50 tinted moisturizer

Next up...more Clinique (I think),
