It’s probably my everyday basics that I get most excited about purchasing, there’s something really satisfying about starting a new bottle of foundation, even if it is no different to the one I just finished.
I mentioned in my Berlin Vlog that I left my Chanel Vita Lumiere Aqua Foundation on the plane and I’ve been mourning it ever since. However in my most recent House Of Fraser order I had to order one and I’m so happy to have it back. I also repurchased my Nars Creamy Concealer which I have been running low on.
I’ve spoken about both products before so this isn’t so much of a review but more of an update to let you know I still love both products.
I never thought that Chanel Vita Lumiere Aqua Foundation would be for me as everyone says it’s a light coverage foundation so I was surprised by just how much coverage it actually offers. I do need a little bit of concealer with it but I find it’s a light-medium coverage that is perfect for spring/summer. It has a really lovely natural finish but I do have to moisturise quite a bit before hand as I do have drier skin.
On to Nars Creamy Concealer in Custard which has been a favourite since I first tried it two years ago. I really love this concealer for days where I’m in a bit of a rush as it offers quite a lot of coverage with little work and it doesn’t cake easily either. It also works great on days where I want a fuller coverage base although I sometime do team it with a colour corrector or a brightening concealer to add extra radiance to the skin. It’s a great staple concealer that I am never without!
