Chanel has expanded its beloved Vitalumière range with a new product–the Loose Powder Foundation. The little mesh-topped pot comes with the softest mini kabuki brush that makes it easy to dispense and swirl on the powder. Chanel Vitalumiere Powder 1 Chanel Vitalumiere Powder 2

The powder gives the finish of a liquid foundation with the ease and lightness of a powder. The formula contains soft focus powders that create a radiant complexion with a satin finish that doesn’t look heavy or powdery in the least.

The powder is buildable, and made exceptionally easy with the brush. The foundation can offer medium to full coverage, depending on how much you apply. I think you could also dust this powder on as a finish over another foundation, or if you’d just like something lighter with a regular powder brush.

Unfortunately, I can’t demonstrate this colour on my face because the sample I received is about 3 shades too dark for me (No. 40). However, I did try it on my face regardless and it was a dream to apply and my (darker) complexion looked amazing. It reminded me of how much I really love powders.

The only thing I could think of improving is a case for the brush to make it more portable and to keep it clean and in good condition.

The new Vitalumière Loose Powder Foundation became available at Chanel counters yesterday.
