Falling Back in Love with Vitalumiere Aqua
The first high-end makeup item I ever purchased was the popular Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation in B30. I started obsessing over YouTube and the beauty guru culture who all seemed to have and love VA. The 13-year-old version of me decided that I needed this "skin-perfector" and I saved all my pretty pennies to go to Nordstrom and pick it up. After getting shade matched and forking over $50, I finally owned what seemed to be the best foundation in the whole world. I wore the water-based complexion product for a good year before I started hoarding other foundations. After I found NARS Sheer Glow and Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer, I tossed VA on the side to collect dust for nearly two years.
I recently picked up the foundation again and popped a blob on my face to protect and cover my skin for a day at the beach. After mixing in one drop of my new favorite CoverFX Custom Cover Drops in N30, I fell head over heels in love with VA again! The texture is extremely lightweight and looks natural on my skin. When I just want to wear a bit of base to even out my skin tone without masking everything, I will definitely be applying it for an everyday foundation. Welcome back, Vita...
