Chanel Mat Lumiere Long Lasting Luminous Makeup

8/30/2012


The bottle is made of glass, the cap and the pump are plastic. Design is very pretty, minimalistic and elegant. Although the bottle is made of glass I don't mind since I don't carry it with myself and the pump is somewhat problematic since it clogs up no matter what you do. I really took care of it, constantly wiping excess but it still got clogged.As for the foundation itself, it has a neutral scent so it won't bother you. I have it in the shade Clair (20) which is a pretty light shade with yellow undertone. I bought it in the winter and my skin was paler than it is now so it's not my best match in the summer. I still do use it as a concealer.The texture is thick and creamy. I have to blend it pretty fast since it dries rather quickly. It provides middle coverage and you can easily build it without appearing cakey. I have combination skin but not a characteristic combo skin with the oily T-zone and when I apply this foundation all the dry parts are exaggerated, they just look flaky. Only thing I can do is to heavily hydrate them before applying this and similar foundations. Oily parts look really good with this on. Not oily at all for more than 8 hours. Although I have several small acne scars on my face I hate heavy coverage and always look for a light foundation that will look natural on my face. So the medium coverage some may want for themselves I actually end up hating. My face looks unnatural. It is great for creating a makeup look when you're going out since the skin does look spectacularly even, almost too perfect. It's great for a heavier makeup look but for daytime, for work or a casual walk I have to skip it. That is why I use it as a cocealer and it works as a great one! It covers my dark eyecircles after my long hour shifts at work, minimises the red scars and evens out tiny bumps.

Bocica je staklena dok su poklopac i pumpica plasticni. Lijepo je dizajnirana, minimalisticna je i elegantna. Iako je bocica od stakla nije mi smetala tezina jer ga nisam ni imala namjeru nositi sa sobom. Pumpica je donekle problematicna posto se zacepi bez obzira koliko vi pazili na nju. Zaista sam je redovito cistila od viska ali ipak se cepila. Sto se tice samog pudera, ima neutralan miris koji vam nece smetati. Ja imam nijansu Clair(20) koja je prilicno svijetla nijansa sa zutim podtonom. Kupila sam ovaj puder dok je bila zima i koza mi je bila mnogo svjetlija nego sto je sada pa mi i ne odgovara po nijansi za vrijeme ljetnih mjeseci. Koristim je sada kao korektor. Tekstura je gusta i kremasta. Moram je jako brzo izblendati posto se brzo susi na licu. Pruza srednje pokrivanje koje mozete slojevima povecati. Posto imam kombiniranu kozu, kada nanesem ovaj puder jako mi naglasi suhe dijelove koji cak izgledaju perutavo. Jedino sto mogu da ucinim je da te dijelove lice namazem masnijom kremom prije nego stavim ovaj i slicne pudere. Suprotna je situacija sa masnim dijelovima koze koji izgledaju odlicno sa ovim puderom. Ne dobijem sjaj ni preko 8 sati nosenja. Iako imam par oziljaka od aknica uopste nisam ljubitelj pudera koji pruzaju potpuno prekrivanje i uvijek sam u potrazi za laganom podlogom koja ce djelovati prirodno na mom licu. Tako da srednje prekrivanje koje neki zele ja zaista ne volim. Lice mi jednostavno djeluje neprirodno, kao da imam masku.Ovaj puder je eventualno dobar za vecernju sminku jer izgladi lice, skoro do savrsenstva. Dobar je za tezu sminku ali treba ga preskociti ako zelite laganu dnevnu sminku. Zato ga koristim kao korektor i kao takav je iznenadjujuce dobar. Pokrije mi podocnjake nakon dugih smjena na poslu, umanji crvenkaste oziljke i cak malene neravnine.


I think it is more for the oily skin type but would only recommend to try and test it multiple times before and if you decide to purchase it since every oily skin is dramatically different than the other. Dry/dehydrated skin simply does not tolerate this foundation so I think it's better to look for something else in that case.

Mislim da je pogodan za masnu kozu ali preporucila bih da ga istestirate sto vise puta prije nego i ako uopste se odlucite za kupovinu, jer znamo i da se masna koza razlikuje od osobe do osobe. Suha i dehidrirana koza uopste ne tolerisu ovaj puder tako da u slucaju da imate taj tip koze, slobodno zaobidjite ovaj puder.


Do have in mind that this foundation is not affordable, it's around 50$ (varying from country to country) so make sure it's absolutely perfect for you before buying because you can end up using a 50$ foundation as a concealer, like me.

Imajte na umu da je ovaj puder prilicno skup, ja sam ga platila cc 80KM (cijene variraju od zemlje do zemlje). Potrudite se da provjerite da li je ovaj puder apsolutno savrsen za vas da ne bi zavrsili koristeci tako skup puder kao korektor, poput mene.
