I’m really excited to share with you a couple new products I bought from CHANEL last month. This is only my second time purchasing something from CHANEL, and it has been a really long time since I stopped by the counter (now, I know why), but the one time I decided to stop by, all hell broke loose.
One of the reasons I decided to splurge is because I fell pretty hard for the Soleil Tan de CHANEL which I reviewed last year. I’ve rediscovered it recently, and cannot seem to put it away. I also deliberately waited until my giveaway has started (and now ended) to actually do this haul so that I don’t accidentally ruin the surprise for the 7 day holiday giveaway.
For a brand that makes such amazing products and has a very sleek and simplistic approach to packaging, I find the glossy finish of lids to be a major flaw. These are seriously magnets for thumbprints, and dust, big no-no’s when it comes to displaying these beauties on my vanity!
CHANELVitalumiere Aqua Foundation ($48) – If you have been following my blog for a while, you will know that I love foundations, and I have wanted to pick up one from CHANEL for some time. I picked up the CHANELVitalumiere Aqua Foundation ($48) since it is a very promising foundation based on the amazing reviews on it. This is a light coverage, lightweight foundation that feels like second skin. This isn’t a foundation I would normally go for, but I really loved the finish of the GivenchyTeint Couture Foundation which convinced me to give this one a try. I bought the shade 10 Clair which seems to be a promising shade match to my NC25 skintone.
CHANELPerfection Lumiere Foundation ($55) – I also picked up the CHANELPerfection Lumiere Foundation ($55) which is on the other end of the spectrum when it comes to coverage. This foundation is supposedly more medium to fuller coverage and it is a formula that I am more accustomed to. I’m excited to give this a whirl and see how it lives up to the claims! I also bought this foundation in shade 20 Beige.
CHANELVitalumiere Satin Fluid Foundation ($56) – The last liquid foundation I bought was the CHANELVitalumiere Satin Fluid Foundation ($56) which has a moisturizing formula that is supposed to “lift” the skin and give it an amazing radiant glow. I bought this mostly because this would complete my collection of liquid foundations from CHANEL, and I am on an ambitious project to test them all out for you ????
CHANELVitalumière Compact Douceur ($66) – The last foundation I bought is the CHANELVitalumière Compact Douceur ($66) which is the newest compact foundation that is replacing the CHANELVitalumiere Eclat de Chanel Compact Makeup. The Vitalumière Compact Douceur has a creamier texture and works very well with the Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation to add greater coverage on the skin. I also bought a back up of my favourite CHANELSoleil Tan de CHANEL. I cannot praise this product enough for providing a natural, radiant, and healthy sunkissed look on my NC25 skintone.

CHANELLevres Scintillantes Glossimer ($31) – I’ll finish off this large haul with two lipglosses, which I bought specifically for the giveaway the CHANELLevres Scintillantes Glossimer ($31). This is a lipgloss that I have heard many amazing things about, mainly since it is one of those beauty cult products and favourites. With 21 amazing and varied shades available, it was hard to narrow down the choice! I managed to narrow it down to the shade Wild Rose and Spark for my lovely readers!
I hope you enjoy reading this haul post and picked up some new beauty ideas for yourself or as gift for your friends or relatives!
What do you think about the products I picked up? Did I pick up too much? Do you have any recommendations for future hauls?[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2346831″]
I’m such a sucker for foundations, and the CHANEL ones are always so very popular on the blogosphere that I thought it was worth trying out ???? I did find the foundations to oxidize which was very surprising (and a little disappointing!)
Yay for Chanel haul! I have the Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation but it doesn’t wear as long on me as I would like, would love to hear what you think of it!
I have high hopes for the Vitalumiere Aqua – it seems to be everyone’s favourite!
great hauls!! ive been wanting to get the chanel vitalumiere aqua foundie too but just not sure if its worth the price…i wanted a ligh coverage but could at least even out skintone and matte finish…
Thank you Janet – I do love full coverage foundations but I wanted to see what all the raves about this foundation is all about ????
Whoah whoah with the amount of stuff you picked up, I thought there was a sale or something, geebus. I anticipate this foundation comparison! c:
The sales ladies were *very* convincing and thus this haul totally had to happen ????
I’ve heard great things about the CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua foundation, and I would love to try it out one day. I’d love to see some swatch comparison between the different foundations ????
Very excited to try this foundation too since all the amazing raves and reviews! Crossing my fingers that it will be worth every penny!
Just found your blog through Lena, yay! ???? Can you believe I’ve never tried a Chanel liquid foundation? Vitalumière Aqua should definitely be the first one!
Hello and welcome! Up until this haul, I was definitely a CHANEL newbie as well! I now have so many high expectations of the Vitalumiere Aqua given how many people love it (it must be good right?! :D)
Hey!! I just wanted to say THANK YOU so much for the Chanel lip gloss from your xmas giveaway!! I won the Wild Rose and it is the nicest lip gloss ever. The colour just POPS. Like you I haven’t bought much from Chanel in the past but oh that’s gonna change ???? The foundations are tempting!
Hi Stephanie! So glad that you like the lipgloss!! I heard the formula is fantastic, and I’m glad it went to a nice home ????
I enjoy your chanel hauls!! I want them all!! That’s why when my sister ask me what I want for my birthday, I said “anything from chanel please!”..lolz ^_~
I love what you guys tend to be up too. This sort
of clever work and reporting! Keep up the awesome works guys I’ve added you
guys to my own blogroll.
I recently purchased a Chanel mascara as a Xmas gift to myself and I love it
That’s is a fantastic haul! Love Chanel’s Aqua foundation!
Wow! Awesome haul!
Oh wow, it’s amazing you’ve acquired most of their foundation line!
I love the formulation of Vitalumiere foundation but their color range is a little off for me. The lightest shade looks somewhat darker than my complexion.
I can’t wait to hear more about your thoughts on the new goodies!
There is always an excitement about Chanel post – certainly a special charm of the brand, I guess! ????
