I decided to try a new foundation as I was need of a new one and went for Perfection Lumiere by Chanel. I much prefer a liquid foundation to a cream one as I find that a liquid sits better on my skin. It does get dry, so a cream one always goes patchy on me.
The packaging is great as it comes in a good sized bottle with a pump, allowing you to take as much as you need out.
The coverage is medium to full and I find the best way to apply this one is with a flat foundation brush. Different foundations, I've found apply better in different ways. With this one I've found that the brush does make it go on a lot better. I'm not a fan of beauty blenders and buffing this one in is no good either. I do like a full coverage so this one is great for me.
The finish is matte, although I do sort of prefer a dewy finish. To make it more dewy I did mix my illuminator in with it to give it a bit of a glow. The color I got in this one is called 20 - Beige. It's just the right color for me and doesn't make me look at all orange. I do hate it when paler foundations end up being too dark and making me look like Madge Harvey from Benidorm. Seriously that woman is just too orange.
This did manage to stay on my skin for around 12 - 13 hours before it did start to go patchy. Throughout the day it did look nice on, but later on I wasn't really fussed on it when it went patchy. If you are an all day foundation wearer like me and love to wear foundation into the evening, I would suggest reapplying it to give a fresh look.
While this is a good foundation, I wouldn't say it was the best I've tried. I will continue to use it, but i'm not sure if I would re buy it.
