I usually stay away from this category of makeup that is the compact foundation both in one type of products. After a little research and reading many good reviews about the Chanel Vitalumiere Compact Foundation I gave it a go.

Description (on the company website)

A compact foundation that reveals the radiance of the complexion. A texture as fine and light as it is melt-away and enveloping. A refillable travel-friendly case for easy touch-ups.

Result: a velvety, even, luminous and natural complexion. A real sensation of well-being.

Adjustable coverage: light to medium.
Adapted to all skin types.


This compact is not at all heavy like a few compact foundations I have tested. The Chanel compact is gentle, feels weightless and comfortable on the skin.
The powder foundation gives a beautiful radiant, glowy finish.
Being a Compact foundation it is designed to be used as a solo product but with light application can also be used to set liquid foundation.
It’s a light to medium coverage product
The compact comes with a sponge applicator which is great for touch ups.
For the application I use my damp beauty blender or powder brush.
As expected from Chanel the packaging is every bit Chic and Luxurious. Classic shiny black box with CC logo and a large mirror on the inside for hassle free application and touch ups on the go.
The compact is detachable so when the compact runs out you can buy a refill, instead of buying the whole compact again.
This product is good for days when you are looking for a light easy no makeup look.
