Recently I bought myself a new foundation. My decision came to me, as I couldn't find appropriate color in the drugstore (I'm too pale). I was also looking for a foundation, which makes a dewy, glowy finish and a medium coverage, so I went for something more pricey. Seller recommended me Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, which came out in November 2011. I also bought Chanel Le Blanc Base for mixing it with my foundation or use it as a base.

I find it really sheer and it's meant for skin, which doesn't have flaws and spots. It gives a natural glow and the consistency is very light because of watery consistency (shake before every use). It feels like silk on the skin, seriously. The price is about 37€, which I find really expensive. The bottle seems quite cheap (plastic) and it does have an okay applicator. This foundation is nothing special, I just like the feeling of it on my skin. I do recommend it to those, who already have beautiful skin and don't need a lot of coverage. I do tend to prefer a medium coverage because of my freckles. Still in search for a perfect foundation.

Chanel Le Blanc is a base, meant to be :
- a base before makeup
- to highlight parts of the face after your foundation
- to mix it with foundation and lighten it up
This product is my new favorite. I mix it with my foundation and instantly it gets lighter. My skin feels softer and looks glowy, fresh. Flaws are less noticeable. Packaging is luxurious - made from glass and looks really pretty on a shelf. It contains 30 ml for the price of 35€. You also get a ''stick'' for easy application and mixing. Really nice and versatile product but still not worth the price tag.
