The bottle is a small frosted glass bottle which is compact and light enough to fit into a makeup bag. As I mentioned earlier, you only need one pump for the entire face, so for someone like me who normally is a two pump girl, this is a miracle. A little amount goes a really long way.
The consistency is really thick and creamy, so its quite shocking how quickly it absorbs into the skin leaving a really weightless finish which is sheer, yet has full coverage, like second skin. The fluid itself smells amazing and it glides effortlessley over every curve of the face to enhance it’s shape. I feel like the light reflecting qualities almost sculpt the face too, the same way as a highlighter or a strobing effect would. You still need to apply blusher, but I’ve notice I use less now. The application requires minimal effort as you apply it with your fingers, so there is no need for brushes or sponges. Its super fast to use, and doesn’t require a primer because the finish is matt and skin feels like velvet. It does however, remain dewy and radiant.
Its fascinating how may different and apposing things this foundation is doing all at once. I have never used anything like it and wasn’t looking for a new foundation, but I have been converted. Also, if you’re a chanel fan like me, it compliments the other products really well too, my eyeshadow, lipstick and blusher all seemed to blend in better and sit on the skin easier, and longer thoughout the day.
I would highly recommend this foundation to everyone. I have never used anything like it. Its genius – luxurious, practical, anti ageing, has a high coverage, it’s sheer with a radiant and natural finish. Did I mention, it lasts all day too, even after the gym. Bring on January!
