luxury base week day 3: chanel healthy glow gel touch foundation

chanel healthy glow gel touch foundation review

Hello lovelies! Welcome to day 3 of Luxury Base Week! I'm so excited about today because it's all about my holy grail high-end base, and that's the Chanel Healthy Glow Gel Touch Foundation with SPF 25.

This foundation received a ton of hype when it came out, which instantly made me not want to buy it. For some reason, blogger hype ironically just makes me not want to try a foundation. But I finally swatched and played around with it in Debenhams a month or so ago and well, I'm in love.

So how does it perform?

It's basically a cushion foundation, although the "cushion" part is actually a super thin layer of very fine mesh fabric. 

The Chanel Healthy Glow Gel Touch Foundation has one of the most unique formulas and textures I've ever used. It's cooling when applied, which is awesome for those of us who struggle with redness. It's so incredibly thin and yet has AMAZING coverage. It doesn't look cakey when you try to build it up in areas where you want full coverage--it just looks dewy and skin-like and moisturised. It smooths over my dry patches and areas of texture. It's no-makeup makeup that makes your skin look freaking great.

I'm just obsessed. My one qualm was that lasting power isn't supposed to be great with it, but I haven't had any problems with it fading throughout the day. 

Side note: I tried to take a picture of the shade swatches (I use shade no. 12) but the lighting was super gray and I couldn't get my camera to focus on the swatch since it was so skin-like already!!
