Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Compact

Chanel recently reformulated their Vitalumiere Aqua foundation (liquid gel, shake well before use) into a cream compact.

Like the liquid, the Vitalumiere Aqua compact is medium coverage, SPF 15, and “naturally luminous” — though I’ve heard from a few folks who say the compact offers slightly more coverage than the liquid. (The compact is $58; the liquid is $45.)

When I swatched the original Vitalumiere Aqua, I swatched them from lightest (the 10s) to darkest (the 50s). Several of you asked if I could instead swatch the Beiges and the Beige Roses together, so that’s how I did the compacts.

This new foundation is available everywhere, of course, but for free shipping, I’d recommend NeimanMarcus.comicon (JUNEFS) and Nordstrom.comicon.

Former users of the Teinte Innocence compact, how do you feel about the new Vitalumiere Aqua compact?

    I wish they would have kept the old colors – I used to wear soft bisque – maybe 32? It feels good – I loved the old one and still have some left so waiting till I run out but did try in the store and thought it felt good. I go between the compact and the Lift Lumiere.

    Which shade is your best match Karla?

    Gail, I’ll have to get back to you on my best match. I was distracted by Burberry the day I was swatching these… >_< Sorry!
