Believe it or not this was only my second foundation. MY first was from Maybelline and I was 14 when I got it. So there was years between that I didn’t have one. I just didn’t need it. I had a concealer and powder and they were all I needed to get my skin look good. Now it seems that as I’m getting “older” my skin is more dry and has more red spots which I try to hide. And instead of concealor foundation has started to seem far more sensible option.
Of course there can never be too much luxury in a make-up bag and starting your day with a little amount of Chanel is never a bad idea. For my dry/sensitive skin this was a miracle. So smooth and easy to apply that I just fell in love with it from the first time. It didn’t leave a mask on my face neather did it block my bores. Moisturizing but did still absorb. It covered the bad bits, but was still transparent.
If I need to name problems it must be the hue – choice, which did reach quite fair enough to me (yeah, tell me how can I get any whiter?) The shade Iused to have (shell) worked great for me during summer, but now as we’re going towards winter it was already getting too dark. But it was the end of it anyways. And if you’re wondering about how sufficient was it I must say very. I bought it in March 2008 and it was at it’s end just few weeks ago. You do the math.
My new one is by Lancome and it’s working alright, bu I do miss my Chanel. And If I by some miracle get any more color on my face it’s the one I’ll be getting. And I just ahev to give this one full five masks (At least tell me if these are stupid).
Have you tried this one?
What did you like about it?
