Vitalumière Éclat by Chanel
2009 October 21, Wednesday
Already in stores and probably gaining popularity is the new Vitalumière Éclat base makeup range by Chanel. The house launched a successful Vitalumière foundation in 2002. One of the first to have light-reflecting pigments in a foundation. And now with this addition, I guess it will be a hit too.
In a new formula with SPF 10, the silicone-coated powder (patented technology by Chanel) has the comfortable feel of a cream sans the oily sensation. It works even harder to achieve a more flawless finish for light is not reflected but refracted on the skin. The High-Definition Light-Reflecting pigments of red, green or blue colours combine and diffuses a pure, vibrant white light, illuminating the complexion. And Radiance-Enhancing pink and orange pigments transforms light to match the skin’s natural tone and add radiance to it. As well as two complementing hydrophobic and lipophobic polymers to isolate pigments from sweat and sebum for a more beautiful and glowing complexion.
Use the brush for a softer translucent finish and touch-ups or the sponge for more coverage. It comes in a nice sleek pouch that holds the brush nicely should you want t bring it out too. And this is not a “2-way cake” so please use it dry only.
Adding to the range is Correcteur Perfection. A long lasting concealer has a light, soufflé like texture that fits comfortably to the skin and diminishes small imperfections like dark circles etc. Unfortunately, it only comes in 2 shades.
