Chanel Perfection Lumière Velvet Foundation Review

by

Every once in while we like to indulge in something luxurious and my dose of luxury comes from my indulgence in Chanel. I’ve been obsessed with the brand since my college days and till date it has never seemed to disappoint me. Today I am going to talk about one of my favorite products from Chanel which is the Chanel Perfection Lumière Velvet Foundation.

BRAND CLAIMS

PERFECTION LUMIÈRE VELVET is a lightweight second-skin foundation. It naturally smoothes and evens out the complexion for a velvety matte makeup result.
The lightweight texture of PERFECTION LUMIÈRE VELVET makes it perfect for normal and combination to oily skin. This ultra-soft emulsion instantly becomes one with the skin, transforming into a natural powdery matte finish that disappears onto the skin.
– The Perfect Skin Affinity complex acts in perfect affinity with the skin to maintain hold and radiance all day long.
– The “smooth-effect” powders selected by the CHANEL Laboratories diminish surface irregularities and instantly smooth pores.
– The patented* Perfect Light Control complex (combination of two semi-sheer hemispherical powders) perfectly evens out dark spots and lightens redness, without a hint of thickness.

My Review

I am a person who loves makeup and if you guys are into makeup you all know how important it is to get the base right! Foundation is a very important step in my makeup routine, I don’t shuffle between a lot of foundations and this Chanel foundation is my absolute favorite for special occasions. It comes in a classy black packaging which fits in the palm of your hand and is very portable. The texture feels very luxurious and it almost feels like second skin. I won’t recommend using and fingers or beauty blender for this product as it dries quickly into a matte finish, foundation brush works the best and it is easily blendable.

It gives a flawless, matte finish and doesn’t even require to be set with powder. It doesn’t settle into fine lines or exposes your pores, it gives a great coverage without slipping off your face. It also prevents oil on your face which is a plus for all the oily skinned beauties. At a stretch it can last very well upto 8 hours which works perfectly for me. The coverage is light to medium but is sure build able to heavy coverage if you work quickly before it mattifies on the skin. I wouldn’t recommend it to people with dry skin as it can look flakey. Even with my combination skin, I exfoliate and moisturise my face before putting this on for a flawless finish.

PROS

  • Smooth texture
  • Buidable coverage
  • Oil free skin all day
  • Matte finish
  • Portable packaging

CONS

  • isn’t moisturising
  • can make dry patches on skin look more prominent(moisturise heavily beforehand)
  • expensive

 

 

As you can see in the image above, it gives a very good coverage and makes your skin look absolutely flawless! This is the product you would reach out for if you have to attend a red carpet event! Even with 30ml product, it lasts quite a long while as very little product is needed to cover the face and neck.

Price – 3250/-

Rating – 4.5/5

Recommendation – I absolutely swear by this foundation, although it is expensive, I like it because it gives me exactly what I need for my base. If you are looking for something that gives perfect matte finish and oil free skin, you’re going to love it, and ofcourse if you are ready to splurge!

Where to buy – You can buy it in physical stores which are usually present in all major malls, for e.g. DLF Promenade, Select Citywalk, etc. If you wish to order online, here are few links:
