Fun with foundation at every price point from Clinique, L'Oréal and Chanel!

If you're looking for a foundation for those hot summer days just around the corner:

Clinique Stay-Matte Oil Free Makeup - 30ml - $28 - in 20 shades ranging from very fair to deep that come in a clear tube allowing for easy shade identification - a lightweight gel-cream formula that provides buildable sheer to moderate coverage specifically formulated for oily skin with patented technology to control oil and shine as well as resist sweat so makeup will look flawless and feel comfortable on the skin all day long.
L'Oréal True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Foundation - 30ml - $18.99 - in 14 shades from Porcelain to Cocoa that guarantee luminous, shine-free and visibly healthier skin in 4 weeks. With a formula that contains 40% pure water to ensure freshness and all day hydration, combined with Vitamins C & E, SPF 20 and liquid Anderson technology that optimizes light reflection and intensifies luminosity.

I've been using it for a couple of weeks now so I can't speak to the 4 weeks to better skin thing but I can say that if you are looking for a light and comfortable foundation for summer, you'll want to give this one a try! My skin feels moist but not greasy, looks luminous but not shiny or sparkly and that they have a shade light enough for me, big bonus!

It's not supposed to be available until July but it's been at my Shoppers for a couple of weeks now so if this sounds good to you, you should be able to snag one now!
And if you wait until August 27th  and don't mind a hefty price tag:

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Compact - $64 - a medium coverage foundation specially formulated with 24% water, the luscious cream texture instantly delivers an incredible sensation of freshness. Created for normal to dry skin, this emulsion boasts an exceptionally fine quality and feel. It melts on the skin for second-skin comfort that lasts all day long.

Contains emollient ingredients that preserve the skin’s natural moisturization. Easy and rapid to apply, it reveals plumped skin that is soft to the touch and a complexion that stays fresh and even for up to 8 hours for the perfect balance between hydration and radiance. As well, it's enriched with soft focus pigments that leaves a halo of light on the face. By completely controlling the reflection of light, it chases away imperfections and signs of fatigue.

Available in 6 shades, organized in 2 harmonies that meet the needs of each woman, according to her skin tone including: 34 Beige Ambré, 44 Beige Ambré, 10 Beige, 20 Beige, 30 Beige and 40 Beige.
