NEW TO MY WARDROBE

Mat Lumiere Repurchase

Okay, so this week I gave in and bought a second Mat Lumiere foundation, as I've come to accept I love this too much to only have one bottle in my possession after it's discontinued.

Chanel Mat Lumiere (40 Beige)
 

A friend of mine asked my thoughts on this foundation yesterday, and I gave her the low-down on this and another Chanel foundation I'm currently trying out. And being the chatterbox I am I thought I'd share my thoughts with you too ;)

Pros 
- Its (obviously) a mat foundation. I have slightly oily skin and these two factors mixed together leave me with a perfectly non mat/non oily complexion.

- The colour match is amazing- its gives a healthy glow, as my olive skin only sees the light of the office these days.

- Its really long lasting, I never feel like I need to retouch it, and it doesn't melt of your face after you've rushed round town on your lunch break!

- It contains SPF15 (hello being good to my skin!) but doesn't give flashback in photos - what more do I need in life!

Cons
- It comes in a limited number of shades, although I've found a perfect match, I know people who have struggled to find a match. However the lovely ladies on the counter will always give you plenty of samples to test out first, and you can get a good 5 days wear out of the samples if you use the right amounts!

- It has the dreaded flaw of collecting around your eyebrows! Not the worst thing as long as you don't over apply, but it can still be a pain!

- It obviously is quite pricey... but I would deffo recommend adding it to your Christmas list or Birthday list like I did when I first wanted to purchase it.

- That's my rambling finished for the rest of the day, i'm off for a yummy roast dinner now! Happy Sunday!

  1. I really want to try this foundation but I've heard it's more yellow based and I have pink undertones in my skin, so I don't know weather to pick one up or not. :(
