Product Review: Estee Lauder Invisible Fluid Makeup (4CN1)

Okay, now they are just showing off.

You guys remember when I went NUTS over Estee Lauder Double Wear Light? Well, this company has DONE IT AGAIN. They have just flipped off Chanel’s Vitalumiere Aqua all kinds of ways… OMG.

Call this the Brown Beauty’s answer to the limited selection of colors with Chanel’s Vitalumiere Aqua. Estee Lauder essentially took the same formula (water based & weightless) and just expanded the color range. I want to say they put it in a  bigger bottle too. This one looks bigger than Vitalumiere Aqua to me (although it’s still listed as 1.0 oz).

Just like its Chanel counterpart, you have to shake it first before you use it. A very little of this foundation goes a LONG way. It’s thin, but spreads out smooth and evenly and offers a medium to full coverage (it can be layered).

My color is 4CN1. I imagine that the C and the N stand for ‘Cool Neutral.’ The color range is not only extensive, it’s separated by undertones. You HAVE to try this foundation in person before committing, because I thought I was 5CN1, and that turned out to be much too red for me. This one has more of a yellow undertone. This foundation also oxidizes as it warms to the skin, so be aware of that when you make your choice.

Despite its fantastic coverage, this foundation wears completely weightless. I am so impressed.

The price point is attractive too. $35 (compared to Chanel’s $45 price tag). Pay attention to this one. It’s good.
