Review: Chanel Perfection Lumiere

It's true what they say, Chanel really does make a girl feel special and that's how I've been feeling each morning as I apply my new favourite foundation - Perfection Lumiere.

Since using up a few samples from counter after I spotted their new darker foundation shades, I've since purchased a full size bottle and it's been my go-to base ever since. I love this foundation. It's the perfect shade match for me (No. 94), blends well and lasts on average approximately six hours on me before I need to blot away shine - my skin tends to get quite oily by early afternoon and needs a touch up.

For obvious reasons, this is the first foundation I've tried by Chanel, but I'm pretty impressed with
the accuracy of the shade I use to match my skin tone. There are 23 shades in total, so check it out next time you pass by a counter and pick up a couple of samples as a commitment to this doesn't come cheap.

All I need are two small squirts of this on the back of my hand and I get medium to full coverage with a radiant finish. I like the finish it gives me, as it definitely 'brightens' me and doesn't leave a dull cast on my skin. It also has an unexpected pleasant scent to it too - kinda fruity! Good stuff.

Update: 31/01/2015 - So it appears that Chanel have gone and discontinued my shade. I've jus attempted to repurchase it on and a pop up message saying it has been discontinued, came in to view when I tried to add it to my basket. Whhhhhhhhy?!!! Another slap in the face from high end brands who really don't care about catering long term for black women. I'm so sick of this.

How much is it? £36
Where can I buy it from? Chanel counters nationwide,

I really want to try out the Chanel foundation but its a bit pricey, and I'm not sure if I want to become obsessed with a foundation that cost roughly a weeks worth of grocery shopping loooool

Hi, I just want to confirm that the now have the full shade range available in the UK because I really love this foundation but the shade I needed was No 54 beige ambre which wasn't available in the UK. I ended up getting it from the US but have been using it sparingly for fear of running out. If I can get here I can use at my leisure :)

Hi I just wanted to confirm that the UK now have the full shade range available in the UK. I am shade No 54 beige ambre which I was unable to purchase. I ended getting it from the US instead but have been using it sparingly for fear of running out. I love this foundation and would love to use at my leisure if I can actually buy here in the UK. Would love to here your take if you know :)
