Let’s start with a little secret: I’ve never really explored much in the primer’s department. Why? Because I didn’t really felt the need to. I’m blessed with pretty normal skin that might lean towards the more drier side of the spectrum during the colder months, but besides that, I have not much else to complain about – touch wood. Chanel Le Blanc however managed to get the better of me and I caved. But during the first day of wear I had the worst break-out ever, which is something very rare to happen to me. I do have break-outs and big ones but never this sudden. I immediately pointed Chanel Le Blanc out as the culprit and haven’t touched it since. I’ve recently felt brave enough to give it another chance and I almost can’t contain my happiness because it was all just pure coincidence, and not due to an allergic reaction – happy dance!
Chanel Le Blanc doesn’t really fit the standard primer requirements but it still is a pre-base post-moisturiser application so I’ll call it primer nonetheless. It’s quite liquid in texture but not as liquid that it would slide off the back of your hand. It’s white in colour but turns transparant once blended or shall I say melted into the skin. It makes sure that whatever is slapped on top, looks fresher and dewier – think Victoria Secret models’ skin in a bottle. It really makes you shine from within without a fleck of shimmer in sight. It’s really something. Oily skin gals would want to sit this one out though or you might catch yourself looking very discoball-like. It makes your make-up last longer and ensures a fresh complexion at the end of a rough day. Such a pleasant way to come home – I almost don’t want to take my make-up off, such a pity!
