THE REVIEW: Chanel’s Le Blanc Light Revealing Whitening Makeup Base SPF 35 / PA +++ ($81) is an outstanding product for creating a truly luminous platform for the rest of your makeup.
Used in conjunction with Chanel’s Le Blanc Light Mastering Whitening Compact Foundation or the Le Blanc Light Mastering Whitening Fluid Foundation you get a perfectly smooth, yet also bright, foundation for your skin.
You can also use the Le Blanc Light Revealing Whitening Makeup Base under any of Chanel’s other foundations and it works just as well – it is remarkably good for photographs, lightening imperfections and shadows without creating unflattering “flash backs” from camera flashes.
This is perhaps the only makeup base I’ve used that people have actually remarked on; I’ve been told my skin looks “lighter”, “fresher” and that I look “less tired”. The days I don’t use it I was told the opposite.
If you’re looking for a fast fix for dull, tired or greyish looking skin, you have to get your hands on this base; it’s absolutely worth it.
