Yet another piece of the Chanel foundation puzzle today: Pro Lumiere foundation. Click here to revisit the comparative Chanel foundation chart. We’ve already looked at swatches of Lift Lumiere and Teinte Innocence fluid.
Pro Lumiere is a medium-to-full coverage, “soft matte” (aka semi-matte) foundation containing SPF 15 (the sun-protection ingredients are octinoxate and oxybenzone). Pro Lumiere fills me with questions: why are there so few shades? Why are the shade names and numbers online different from what I found at my counter? Chanel’s website gives these shades decimal designations; at my counter I found multiples of 10. Limpide-Nude was 10; Clair-Cameo was 20; Cendre-Shell was 30; Beige was 40; Naturel was 50; and Soft Bisque didn’t have a number. Maybe these were older testers, and Chanel more recently switched to the .5, 1.0, 1.5 system? If there’s a Chanel expert in the house, I’d love your insight.
