Searching For Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation Dupes

About Bourjois and Chanel

It’s crazy Bourjois was never on my radar – I didn’t even know the cosmetics brand existed, but after finding out they were owned by Chanel I was intrigued. Bourjois is a drugstore foundation mainly sold in supermarkets in France. The cosmetics brand was apparently still owned by Chanel in 2014 according to this Reuters article here. Hence, it made sense how the formulas would probably be similar.

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation is one of my top five foundations even though I have extremely oily skin. It applies so easily and it looks beautiful on the skin. It’s a pricey high-end foundation which performs very similar to the Chanel Perfection Lumiere foundation.

Final Thoughts

Chanel Perfection Lumiere foundation was great – it applied easily, the skin looked hydrated, healthy and it photographed beautifully. It’s unfortunate it was discontinued. Nevertheless, while these dupes are no Perfection Lumiere they are the best dupes I have found to date.  One thing common about these Chanel dupes is they are all luminous semi-matte foundations just like Chanel Perfection Lumiere.
