Like many of us, the recession has hit us hard.

We’ve had to look for more economic ways to live a beautiful life.

This is my way of finding all the beauty that is out there for us at a smaller prices.

So let’s start reading and writing about some great items that come from us going  from More of the Target and Less from the Tiffany.

I hope everyone will add their experiences and findings with the rest of us!

One Chanel Cosmetic That is Worth Every Cent

Is Chanel Vitalumieire a Cosmetic Worth the Price?

Sometimes, it actually pays to spend more money on certain items. While there are wonderful drugstore products, I do believe in splurging once in a while. Here’s one of those products:

1,  Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15.


This sells for $47.00 and is wonderful.  It’s so silky and you need to use very little. It just brightens up your face and most of the time I wear nothing else on my face with it. Best to apply it with your fingers. I put a little bit into the palm of my hand, put the palms together and run over face.

Quite frankly, this is makeup that lives up to its hype.

I bought this online and I should have bought it in the store. There are so many shades of this foundation, you really need to go to the Chanel counter and find a color that really works for you. The color I got, 30 Beige, was a little bit light on me, however, I think I can still make it work so I didn’t return it.

Description:  The tiniest drop of this hybrid fluid creates a fresh, natural complexion. Skin looks refined and feels refreshed, creating an exquisite makeup experience. The fluid formula has a soft, water-light texture, and comes in 10 shades that match perfectly to skin’s undertones, whether pink or beige. Dermatologist-tested. Non-comedogenic. Oil- free.

The bottle is plastic. There is a little bit of a fragrance (Why does Chanel insist on putting fragrance onto everything?) , however, the smell does wear off. The overall effect is not as sheer as I thought it would be, however, if you’re looking for a full coverage, this is not the one for you.

open vitalumiere

I have very sensitive skin and this has never broken me out.


















You can see that there’s quite a difference and that was done using just about a dime-sized amount.

For my dry skin, I made certain to really moisturize well before putting on the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqa,

Have you tried this makeup? What were your impressions?
