Comparison: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua & Shiseido Sun Protection Liquid Foundation

I feel that everyone is always on the hunt for a good foundation and many enjoy reading about them.. I know I do..

So the newest foundation to my large collection is the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation (Review).. I really like this product and it reminded me so much of my Shiseido Sun Protection Liquid Foundation which I had very much enjoyed last summer..

Although these reminded me of each other.. They are still very much different.. Here's how:

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua
Shiseido Sun Protection Liquid Foundation
Slightly Thick Formula
Very Runny Formula
Light to Medium Coverage
Medium to Full Coverage
Semi-Matte Finish
Matte Finish
SPF 15
SPF 30 PA++ or SPF 42 PA++
Need to VERY Shake Well
Need to Shake Well
Might Transfer a Little Bit
Transfer Resistant
Available in 9 Shades
Available in 7 Shades


- Both are very nice foundations that are great for summer..

- The Shiseido one would be much better for the summer because of it's high SPF and because it's water-resistant..

- The Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua is for those who want something with less coverage..

- For those who liked the light-weight formula of the Chanel Aqua but didn't like the coverage, the Shiseido one would be perfect for you because it feels just as light-weight on the skin..

- If you really enjoyed the Chanel Aqua but it broke you out, try the Shisiedo Sun Protection Liquid Foundation..

So despite their similarities, these two foundations are very much different..

Hope this helped you a little bit & if there's anything else I might've missed, please let me know =)

wow really didn't think they'd be that much different.. I have a co-worker that swears by Shiseido foundations overall.. But I find myself drawn to the Chanel, I find I like light coverage during summer =)

wow! thank you for this post. :) i haven't been frequenting shiseido counters. maybe i should pay them a visit soon.

i have a question, does the shiseido foundation have a flash back? it contains rather a high spf for foundation. thank you! =)

MakeupbyThess - They're both light-weight.. But the Shisedo has more coverage

What a great post, I always hear Lisasz09 talk about the Shisedo one, and comparison reviews are always the best! I don't think I'd mind either of these, Vitalumiere Aqua is something I'm def hoping to pick up some time :) Great idea for a post!

maya - Thanks so much hun.. Glad you liked it =)

Makeup Look/ Catharina - My pleasure hun =)

Yu - Give both of them a try and see which one suits you best.. The shiseido controls oils better... Thanks for passing by =)
