Hello lovelies, i hope your all well, please bare with me, i am awful at trying to pose for photos like this (so apologies if i look awkward) today i road tested Chanel's Perfection Lumiere in 30 most of you probably did i purchased elle magazine this week (basically for the free soap&glory mascara) and the tester for Perfection Lumiere was in it. Now im not one to usually test something from a magazine but it was Chanel, was a pretty good match and i couldnt resist. 

The foundation itself has quite a strong perfumed scent to it, im not overly fussed but im also not bothered by it at the same was easy to apply with my usual foundation brush and a little definitely went a long way, i had enough to touch up throughout the day.
When i first put this on i really liked it, i liked the matte finish, and the colour seemed perfect for my skin, however as the day went on (this photo was taken this evening) as you can see it began to be somewhat patchy and looked darker than when it was originally applied..okay it may be because i haven't been matched for a shade and this is to dark!! id definitely be matched and get a tester again to see, as i really liked the lightweight matte finish to it!!..with my MAC Studio Sculpt my face tends to look quite shiny at the end of the day but with this it didn't!! 

Altogether i have mixed reviews on this, im tempted to get matched and see how that goes, but if it does go patchy throughout the day this is definitely not the foundation for me!! although it seems to be a nice foundation im not sure if i could justify the £30ish price tag

Have you tried Perfection Lumiere? what did you think?

  1. I quite like it but I prefer vitalumiere aqua, I find because perfection lumiere is a long wearing foundation its a bit drying on the skin x

    1. i might have to give vitalumiere aqua a go it seems to have such rave reviews :)..thanks for the comment :D xx

  2. I think I may have made a noise that resembled a squeal when I saw this tester as I wanted to try it so badly. Rather glad I didn't splash the odd £36 on it though. I thought it was good but did not live up to expectations.

    And I totally only bought Elle for the mascara.

    1. completely agree with you, the way its been talked about i was very excited, but then not all foundations suit everyone!! i think i might give vitalumiere aqua a go!! :)..haha at the mascara bit ;) xx
