Chanel’s newly launched Vitalumiere Douceur compact is a pressed powder foundation that gives both hydration and glow unlike other pressed powders. I think its the technology that has let Chanel whip up powder to a very fine texture so it seems weightless and with the addition of optical diffusers it works for light to medium coverage. Can be used by itself or as a finishing companion to your Vitalumiere foundation. Don’t go by the sample picture -there are enough shades .Try any of the rose beige series for Indian skin.

Yes, we know cellulite has no cure and we all have to live with wobbling blobs but the tried and tested Gel Minceur does reduce the appearance of light cellulite. For best results use the exfoliating scrub before. Doesn’t take away the cellulite permanently though ..sigh !
