What's your favorite Chanel foundation??
What's your experience with Chanel foundations??
Do you want to try a Chanel foundation??
I've always wanted to try one but propylene glycol, which my rosacea reacts to, is in all of the ones I've checked ingredients on. BTW the 2 times I've had to ask Chanel directly about ingredients they asked for my address and sent them via...are you sitting down? Fedex!!! What a waste of $$ for them. Now I'm afraid to ask anymore! Does anyone know if they have a foundation that uses butylene glycol instead of propylene glycol? Also, I've heard that they don't run very light, at least in the US. Even MAC's new Prolongwear in NC15 is a bit dark on me. Does Chanel have anything lighter than that?
There is a new shade in the new formulation of Vitalumiere. 0.2 Diaphane. It will be light enough. I'm NW/NC10 and it worked for me. I just didn't like the formula. I found it never felt like it set and even with my dry skin it felt greasy or something to me since it never seemed to dry.
I would love to know if they have this light of shade in any of the other formulations like ProLumiere?? I don't have a counter near me so I had the sample of VitaLumiere sent to me with a CP I had someone do for me from the US.
i really want to try chanel mat lumiere, but the reviews on makeupalley are so-so and then there aren't many reviews i've seen when i searched here on specktra..
has anyone used it that has combo/oily skin? staying power? coverage?
i wasn't able to get a sample, because the SA at macy's said they don't give samples of foundation out.. boo
What are the opinions on the concealer? There's the Lumiere (the one in the tube like the glossimers) and the Lumiere Lift (that one has some "lifting" properties, as the name would suggest). LL is only $5 more than the other.
Basically, my MUFE Lift just isn't cutting it anymore. I'm investigating the MUFE Full Coverage and the Camouflage Cream, among others, and wondered about the Chanel options.
There are no glitters in Le Blanc Illuminating Base. It is one of Chanel's best sellers. I've tried samples before but I prefer my base to have SPF so I don't need to layer so many products.
Vitalumiere Aqua foundation has launched and I tried it. It provides light coverage, and it is replacing teint innocence fluid. I love TI fluid and I'm sad it is gone. The cream version is still on going.
do you know if people with rosacea usually react to propylene glycol? i know that i react to mica and have wondered which chanel foundations contain that, but i didn't know about this ingredient before... what foundation are you using atm?
Usually might be a stretch but many do. If you have read the book by Dr. Nase it is included in there as a potential problem ingredient. The thing with rosacea triggers, as far as cosmetic ingredients go, is that it's very YMMV, so you really have to do your own experimenting. I have great luck with Chantecaille Future Skin and Alima MMU (but the MMU contains mica).
Have you had a chance to check this out by any chance Miss QQ? Any idea what the sunscreen ingredient is and whether the formula includes propylene glycol? Are there any really light shades? Not too full of questions, am I?
Edit: A friend of mine from MUA sent me this link with the ingredients for the new foundation. It won't work for me because of the chemical sunscreen, alcohol (it seems like all these newer light foundations like Diorskin Nude, etc. contain alcohol, and high up on the ingredient list) and dipropylene glycol, but maybe someone else would find the list (and comments) useful:
I've got a sample of B10 Vitalumiere Aqua but it is too light for me. I tried the other shades at the counter and I like the texture and scent. I've heard about the chemical ingredient in the new lighter foundations too but I don't know if they will cause any problem to my skin. Tried Diorskin Nude on a face a few times and was fine.
Monsy, have you tried the foundation chart over at Temptalia? All of her readers entered this information, so that might be a good place to get started.
I was shopping yesterday and I am looking for a light foundation to get rid of my slight redness in the cheeks I have during winter, something dewy and not heavy and definitely not something matte. She recommended the new Vitalumiére Aqua foundation in B30 to me. By bf asked me if I am looking for a bad tanning bed look. She thought I will be pleasantly surprised when I try it.
The lightest colour is BR20, but the name is Beige Rosé. Would that work being a NC15/20? It still looks a lot darker than the NC20 foundation I use in summer.
