Chanel Perfection Lumiere Beige (30) Swatch & Review

 Chanel's latest foundation offering is this- Perfection Lumiere. It's supposed to replace their Pro Lumiere which was discontinued, so it has big boots to fill as Pro was many Make Up Artists favourite base. This is 30 Beige which is a medium yellow-neutral tone. Texture wise this is more similar to Mat Lumiere, it has a medium coverage but blends more seamlessly into the skin. It is a matte coverage but it doesn't appear flat or cakey. I found this lasted the whole day without any need for touch ups. It has a sweet floral scent (reminds me a bit of the perfume used in their Hydramax range) but doesn't linger once applied. Perfection Lumiere also has an SPF 10 which is fine for the winter but in the summer probably isn't enough for most people (I've been told by a Estee Lauder rep that a lot of cosmetics companies avoid going higher than a SPF 10-15 as it changes the formula quite substantially).
