Chanel Le Teint Ultra Tenue Foundation

First things first, if you have oily or acne prone skin, this foundation is the one for you.

I tried this product this week before a nine hour shift at work and it absolutely amazed me.
When I got home at the end of the day my foundation was still flawless. I'd had it on for 14 hours and it looked almost as if I had just applied it.

Usually I have to blot at several points throughout the day to stop my make up becoming oily and literally sliding off of my face but this product stayed all day without the need to make any adjustments.

At £37 for a 30ml bottle, this product is hardly cheap, but it is without a doubt worth every penny and is available in 16 shades.

As you may know, my favourite foundation up until this point had been Estee Lauder Doublewear, but Chanel's Le Teint Ultra Tenue has certainly given it some serious competition.

The only thing I could fault with this product was that because it is so build able and gives amazing coverage, it can appear cakey if you're not careful. Especially if you apply powder products over the top. I found this to be the case when I applied both a loose translucent and a porcelain pressed powder to set the foundation as well as a powder bronzer for contour and a powder highlight!

I found it made my skin appear a bit dry, but this was soon remedied by a few sprays of MAC fix plus to hydrate my face. I now know to use powder sparingly next time I wear this foundation (I usually cake powders over the top of my foundation to keep the oil at bay but this product clearly doesn't require that extra help).

Understandably due to price this may not be a foundation for everyday use for some of us, but if you feel like a little treat or an excuse to splash out a little, this is definitely a product I think is worth investing in.

As the nature of the product is quite thick, it may not be ideal for those of you that suffer with dry skin. However if you'd like to try it for yourself, you can pop along to your nearest Chanel beauty counter (Debenhams / House of Fraser / John Lewis) and you'll be able to try it for yourself. They'll even give you a sample of your colour to take home and try for yourself.

Unfortunately I didn't think to take photos to showcase this wonderful product but I'll be sure to upload some to my Instagram soon.

I'd love to know how this product suits different skin types so feel free to get in contact using the details at the top of the page or the comments box below.
