One of my top favorite designer brand foundations. This looks impeccable on the skin; super smooth, a natural finish. This stuff makes my skin look like silk! I haven't had any issues with this oxidizing or coming off midway through the day. Each time I wear this I am blown away by how flawless my skin looks, and how well it stays put. I've tried this with numerous primers, powders and setting sprays, and I am never left disappointed. This is a gorgeous foundation and I highly recommend picking it up if you are willing to splurge a little.

Oh my goodness, this is the first foundation I have found that does not make my skin flake or dry out withing a few hours of application. I am literally flawless all day long! Seriously, a game changer for my makeup routine. Plus, it feels very light and blends really well even for it being what I would consider a mediumish coverage.

I love this foundation. I’m on probably my fifth bottle of
it. I go through a certain pattern: use it and only it for weeks on end, then tell
myself that I need to rotate my foundation collection. A few months go by, then
I wonder why I ever stopped using this foundation because it makes my skin look
great. It’s my favorite natural/matte foundation, the non-dewy cousin of my
other favorite, Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk. Yeah, I have expensive foundation

I see three major cons to this foundation that I actually
want to talk about first. One: the shade range. Chanel needs to get their act
together in this regard, period. I may have found a perfect match (BR12), but
there are many, many people who are excluded from this foundation. Two: the
price. I can use this up so quickly that I keep having to remember that this is
Chanel… Three: the fragrance. Will luxury beauty companies please just stop
already? Fragrance is horrible for your skin!

Now that I’ve lodged my complaints about my HG foundation,
let me tell you why I love it. First, it’s nearly foolproof. Brush, sponge,
even hands… doesn’t matter how you put this on your face, it just looks great.
Second, it looks so natural. Your skin just looks perfected, albeit a bit
matte. Third: it lasts all day even in the worst of conditions. While the neat
index has been near 100, this is what’s been on my face. And it lasts.

This is such an underrated foundation and I hope more start
talking about it soon.

I expected so much more from this foundation. Chanel's quality is so great, I thought this foundation would be a dream come true. It seems to kind of float on skin, doesn't sink in and doesn't last. Very strange over moisturizers but okay on plain dry face, okay I said not great. I just really expected better. I saw other women with mature skin saying this works well, but not by my experience. I do love the squeeze bottle though. I have sunscreen allergies but this foundation did not break me out

I have never felt anything more natural on my face! I have tried other high end foundations but I will always come back to this! I have combination skin and this is by far the best foundation for it. It does not feel cakey, dry or oily... and best of all, it lasts all day. I was a little surprised about how small the container was for the foundation was but honestly a little goes a long way that the bottle will last you quite some time. Try this and you will not be disappointed!

The coverage and color were a perfect match. The coverage was a true medium coverage for those looking to even skin tone and hide some blemishes. The foundation lasted all day and never streaked even with sweat in the summer. The matte finish was really gorgeous. The only downside is it rises quickly so you have to blend it on your skin in small areas. It’s important to use a little product at a time or else you can look patchy.

I have been using it four months ago even i used chanel foundation before but the velvet smooth effect is different .Its natural on face when you wear it its light smooth but covers well dont need to use face primer before foundation or loose powder after it ..simply apply three drops on your hand and put it on all over your face gently .No Brush Need ! and you will have nice glow natural look ..recommenced to everyone looks for natural medium coverage 👍

Love, love, love! The fragrance of this alone is so refreshing, I love having this on my face, I know a lot of people steer away from that but I personally love it. The coverage is medium to full & is certainly buildable. It has a natural finish with 10+ hour lasting power. This foundation is great for autumn-spring & perfect for normal to dry skin types.

This product is amazing! It gives you a beautiful natural look, and blues away your imperfections. I would say it is a light-medium coverage, depending on how much you put on. The reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is the dryness. If you have ANY dry patches the foundation WILL cling on. It also dries extremely quick so get ready to blend fast.
