After 2.5 years of not carrying make-up, after which having to go again into society once more (albeit hesitantly), I got here to an terrible realization. My make-up was solely match for a museum.
All the stunning bottles and powders I had had expired, or have been in various levels of expiry. It was a little bit of a impolite awakening, I have to say.
It isn’t to say in fact, that I wasn’t going to make use of a few of the merchandise – I function inside tolerances and I push my luck 😛 – however I noticed a basis within the No. 1 de Chanel vary and I assumed “I need that!”
So, when the chance arose for me to check it out in individual, I caved and received a bottle of the No. 1 de Chanel Revitalizing Basis. It was fairly gratifying for me to search out out that my shade remained the identical! LOL!
It’s additionally been one in all my higher magnificence buys so far! 😀

The liquid basis is enriched with crimson camellia oil to consolation the pores and skin and keep its protecting barrier. The truth is, the No. 1 de Chanel Revitalizing Basis is formulated with skincare advantages, which makes it extra than simply make-up – simply how I like my bases!
Gentle-Medium Protection is comfy on pores and skin
To be sincere, it took me a short while to get again into the groove of carrying a basis – that’s what 2.5 years of staying at house does to you! However when the chance permits, I prefer to placed on a bit make-up, simply to maintain my hand in.
I discovered the protection of the No. 1 de Chanel Revitalizing Basis to be light-medium. It isn’t as gentle as say the Water Recent Tint (which I nonetheless love!) however the protection and texture isn’t as excessive nor thick because the Les Beiges Wholesome Glow liquid basis both. I discover it to fall someplace within the center.
Finest utilized utilizing fingers
When you can apply it utilizing a brush or sponge in case you like, I favored the impact finest after I use my fingers. I discover that a bit goes a good distance (in case you’re searching for a light-weight protection end), and the heat of your fingers helps the product unfold higher and meld higher with the pores and skin.
It does really feel a bit like a moisturiser, so spreading it’s simple, and it stays properly on the pores and skin.
Pure, luminous end
What I really like about it’s the pure, luminous end I get. It doesn’t cowl issues like pigmentation or issues like that. You’d want a a lot greater protection product. You possibly can strive layering over troubled areas, to construct protection, however you’d be higher off utilizing a concealer, or a excessive protection basis. What it will possibly do is neutralize and canopy redness, and provide you with a extra impartial, even-toned look throughout.
I just like the very pure look, as a result of that’s what I search for in a basis. No heavy powdery look or really feel, and a weightless really feel. It was a really good welcome again to the world of make-up! 😀
Does it final lengthy?
I assume it relies upon. You probably have a full face of make-up, the place you conceal and set with powder, it will possibly final fairly lengthy on the pores and skin.
When you simply apply a skinny layer, simply to even out pores and skin tone, and aren’t outdoors, sweating, or aren’t anticipating your make-up to final for a full work day within the workplace, then it isn’t as lengthy lasting. It doesn’t oil up nor get greasy on my dry pores and skin, nor does it sink into traces or pores.
My pores and skin appears to be like even and good, even up shut, and that makes me completely satisfied 🙂
For me, it’s ample, as I solely put on make-up for occasions now – assembly folks, lunches, occasions and so on. So I don’t anticipate my base to final a full 8-10 hour day. It lasts me 2-3 hours, and that’s fairly sufficient for me.
I do discover that it’ll fade because the day wears on, as does most make-up apart from the longest carrying ones, in order that’s one thing you’d need to remember, in case you favor one thing longer lasting.
However folks say it’s an terrible basis!
I’ve observed that some folks don’t prefer it, complaining that it settles into traces or that it provides no protection. I believe a lot of it’s to do along with your expectation of a basis and your choice.
The No. 1 de Chanel Revitalizing Basis is certainly not a excessive protection basis. I’d lean to it being a bit gentle on protection. However that works for me, and I like that in basis. I don’t go for thick, heavy protection, as I favor my pure pores and skin to return by means of. Many individuals don’t. When you don’t, this isn’t for you.
As for the settling into traces, I’d hazard a guess that they’re making use of an excessive amount of product, or utilizing a brush to use. I personally discover that utilizing fingers spreads the product nicely, and will get it nicely and actually melded with the pores and skin, as an alternative of it sitting on prime of the pores and skin. This, I discover, coupled with utilizing a bit extra product that obligatory, causes it to sink and settle into traces on pores and skin.
I’m in my late 40’s however don’t have very distinguished traces, however have older pores and skin in fact. I don’t have bother with this product. Below harsh daylight, no make-up appears to be like good. Most indoor lighting is extra forgiving. So, for me, this basis works, and works nicely for my choice, and the way in which I take advantage of and like to make use of my basis merchandise.
Shades are true to Chanel
I put on B10 within the No. 1 de Chanel Revitalizing Basis, which is constant for all my basis shades within the model. If you’re pondering of shopping for on-line, or don’t have a Chanel counter close to you the place you possibly can check, and know your shade in Chanel, you possibly can fairly confidently purchase your common shade, and it’ll work.
Whereas I acknowledge that this isn’t the most affordable basis out there, nor essentially the perfect or highest protection product, I do get pleasure from utilizing it. The feel is comfy and fits my choice. The lighter protection fits me, and I discover you don’t want very a lot every time. I solely pump half a pump every time I take advantage of (with a light-weight hand), and it’s greater than sufficient for me.
That is the one basis I’m utilizing for the second (as a result of it’s the latest and freshest 😛 ) and I forsee it to be that method for some time 🙂
