CHANEL Vivalumiere Aqua Fresh & Hydrating Cream Compact Makeup SPF15

What a long name!
I don't really use cream makeup so I decided to give this one a try. Plus I never tried any Chanel foundation before.

30 Beige - 12g - 0.42oz. - $58
The compact is quite cute and classic. It comes with a sponge and a mirror. I was gonna throw away the clear plastic divider, but it actually stops smudging makeup on the mirror...if the sponge is dirty.
I have been using it for almost a month now.  I like this foundation. It is light weight if using the right application. It is medium coverage but definitely build-able. It lasts 6-8 hrs on my super dry face. The formula is not really hydrate to me, but I think it is because my face is just super dry all the time. When my face is not too dry, this formula looks natural and fresh on my face.
I tried to use the sponge to apply, it makes my face really fake...The best way to apply this foundation is using a foundation brush. Either a traditional one or something like MAC 187.
I picked out 30 Beige because I tried to match the color of my neck. I prefer a natural color, but they don't have one. So I have to pick out a yellow undertone. It looks dark from the swatch, but it is actually not too bad.
