Hi lovelies! Finally another post! I have been so busy with school, I just didn't find the time to blog. I feel like I have so much to talk about! Today I will be telling you guys all about the Chanel Vitalumière Éclat compact powder. I have had this for quite a while now but I only recently discovered it's awesomeness. Let's have a look!
Like all Chanel powders, this comes with a black velvet pouch. Don't we all just love them? They always end up in a drawer but I just can't throw them away. When I take this powder with me, I actually put it back in the pouch. It's just easy because there's room for the brush too. The compact isn't really that big so it's perfect for your handbag.
The brush is actually very nice and soft. It's perfect for touch-ups. I still prefer to use the sponge because it gives a better coverage but the brush is nice when you're on the road and have to be quick. I'm sorry for this messy photo with the compact already used. I had already taken photos of it when I got it but they turned out a bit dark.
On the left you see the unused powder. The powder is very very light. I have the shade BR10 Beige Rosé - Pastel. It is actually a bit lighter than my skin but I use it to cover my redness and it works perfect! When I use it on my whole face, it looks too light. So for my refill, I'll go for a darker shade. The compact clicks out very easy without falling out so don't worry about that. Eventhough it's a bit light, I sometimes apply it with the brush all over my face. That way I don't look too pale but it just gives a nice glow/finish. I can't really use it as a foundation because this shade is too light for me. This powder has the typical Chanel scent which I love!
So overall I love this powder! It's perfect to cover up my redness. When I get a darker shade I will definitely use it as a foundation because I'm sure it will be perfect for that too. I would really recommend this powder because it makes my skin so soft and like all Chanel products, I feel it just makes my skin better.
