Chanel Le Teint Ultra Tenue Foundation Review

Monday, January 23rd 2017 0

Their biggest shade range yet

What Chanel say: Discover the new-generation longwear foundation for seamless, lasting wear that moves with you. The fluid and powder formulas deliver weightless, buildable coverage to leave a flawlessly matte yet naturally luminous finish. In up to 16 shades.

Level of coverage

True to their word, this offers a completely full coverage.

Finish 

This gives a very matte finish, no luminosity or dewiness whatsoever.

Longevity 

An impressive lasting power, this hadn’t moved at all from morning to night.

Techniques that you might need to know

Like many matte foundations, you have to work quickly with this because it dries almost instantly. I’d recommend applying this in small dots, working your way around the face.

You’ll like this if…  

– you have oily skin

– you like a full coverage

– you want a flawless foundation finish

Avoid if…

This might not be for you if you have dry skin. Stick to the Vitalumiere foundation instead.

Products that work well with this 

This is very flawless and matte so I like to use something to freshen it up a little. Try adding some MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish powder to the cheekbones to give this added depth and glow.

Everything else I need to tell you

One of the things I love about Chanel is how wonderful everything smells. This foundation has a floral, powdery scent and smells divine when you apply your make-up. I have to say, this isn’t a foundation for the faint hearted. It is completely full coverage and lasts all day. If you aren’t used to a very full make-up look, this may be too much for you. It is, however, very reliable if you need something long lasting.

Also, I really must emphasise how happy I was to see that this was available in 16 shades. I think this is a positive and encouraging step in the right direction for Chanel, sometimes known to offer a smaller selection of shades.

If I had to describe this foundation in one sentence…

A completely full and flawless finish that lasts all day with a velvety, matte finish.

This foundation costs £37 and is available from Selfridges.
