In 2016 Chanel discontinued Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation and Chanel Ultrawear Flawless Foundation was its replacement. If you are wondering whether Chanel Ultrawear Flawless is similar to Chanel Perfection Lumiere you stumbled upon the right post.
Brief Background Story
Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation was great. I found out about the foundation on YouTube. Yes, a YouTuber made me buy it. This YouTuber unfortunately, is no longer on YouTube but there are other videos reviewing this foundation like here and here.
After the first application, I knew this was it. Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation applied beautifully, it smelled fantastic, the skin looked healthy, and the foundation looked so natural on the skin.
On the flipside apart from the scent, the Chanel Ultrawear Flawless Foundation is the complete opposite. Find out more about Chanel Ultrawear Flawless Foundation here.
Here Are The Major Differences Between The Chanel Ultrawear Flawless Foundation and The Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation
Chanel Ultrawear Flawless Foundation Blendability Vs The Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation Blendability
In terms of blendability, this is the worst foundation I own. It dries so quickly there is no time to blend the foundation. Matter of fact, if you don’t apply this foundation with a silicone based primer to help the foundation spread the finish look will be very patchy and splotchy.
To save your makeup look, you will have to reapply foundation to these areas then pat it lightly with a makeup sponge to prevent the foundation around the patches from lifting – I don’t know what they were thinking. On the flipside the Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation blends so easily on the skin – no fuss no drama.
Chanel Ultrawear Flawless Foundation Coverage Vs The Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation Coverage
The Chanel Ultrawear Flawless Foundation is thicker than the Chanel Perfection Lumiere so it very strange that double the pumps are needed to achieve the same level of coverage the Chanel Perfection Lumiere coverage provided. Was the formula changed to force the foundation to finish quickly to increase sales?
Chanel Ultrawear Flawless Foundation Finish Vs The Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation Finish
Chanel Ultrawear Flawless Foundation has a sticky tacky finish so this foundation must be set with a translucent powder to get rid of the sticky tacky feeling. Additionally, the foundation settles into fine lines and accentuates pores.
Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation dried down to a soft powdery matte finish that was very natural. The foundation looked flawless on the skin.
Chanel Ultrawear Flawless Foundation Feel Vs The Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation Feel
Ultrawear Flawless Foundation feels heavy on the skin but the Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation was extremely light.
Chanel Ultrawear Flawless Foundation Long-wearing Test Vs The Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation Long-wearing Test
The Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation lasted longer on the skin and it looked good even after 8 hours wear the Chanel Ultrawear Flawless Foundation is the complete opposite.
Chanel Ultrawear Flawless Foundation Oil Control Vs The Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation Oil Control
The Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation oil control was better and even when the oil peaks through the skin just glowed. The Chanel Ultrawear Flawless Foundation on the flipside looks greasy and super cakey when the oil starts to peak through.
