Chanel 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.
Available in 6 shades. I always recommend anyone to try it before purchase and consult with the BA to get the right shade, mine is 20 Beige.
I didn’t have a wide range of foundations, I only bought or tried them after I read good reviews from other beauty bloggers. I read couples of good review about this foundation and decided to visit Chanel counter which I am sure that I will come home with it. In this post I will compare Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet with all my foundations. But overall it has a matte finish and very light texture.
In terms of packaging, I love how light it is and very travel handy. Though I like the convenience from the pump in my other foundations, I think light and compact packaging are far more important than pump.
In terms of texture shown in picture above, its a bit runny and not as thick as Shu Uemura or Chanel PL.
Last but not least. Face with Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet under indoor lighting and outdoor lighting.
Hope the short thought about this foundation helps! I completely love this foundation because its light texture and have enough coverage for day to day activities. Or else layer a bit more if you want more coverage. Another good thing about this foundation is; it does not result in oily face even after all-day activities and I am not a kind of person who do touch up or apply more powder during the day.
But as I always mention give it a try first in person. I always ask the BA to try it on my face before buying foundation. You do not want base product that doesn’t suit you.
Thanks for reading.
