Chanel Extremely Le Teint Basis + Le Correcteur de Chanel Assessment

Chanel Ultra Le Teint + Le Correcteur de Chanel review

Chanel just lately reformulated two of their base merchandise together with the Extremely Le Teint Basis ($60, out there in 35 shades), Le Correcteur de Chanel ($43, out there in 16 shades), and Le Correcteur de Chanel in a Shade Corrector ($43, 4 shades).

I hauled the brand new basis and concealer to place them to the check and have a more in-depth look with swatches at this time.

Chanel Ultra Le Teint Foundation + Le Correcteur de Chanel

Chanel Extremely Le Teint

The Chanel Extremely Le Teint Ultrawear All-Day Consolation Basis is a tender matte end basis with a light-weight texture and medium buildable protection. It’s been some time since I attempted the unique Extremely Le Teint so I can’t precisely recall what the previous one was like, however I believe I keep in mind it being on the thicker heavy facet. The brand new reformulation has a extra fluid light-weight really feel in comparison with the unique. In comparison with present Chanel matte/velvet bases it’s not skinny and doesn’t have fairly as a lot slip because the Extremely Le Teint Velvet (reviewed right here).

Components blends effectively for a tender demi-matte end. I swatched just a few on the counter and the gross sales affiliate agreed that I regarded like I used to be in between shades B40/B50 probably a BD41. The undertone of BD41 matched higher for my yellow/olive/golden skintone however is only a tad too mild. The following shade up BD51 was too deep and olive for me. If I had been to get my precise match I’d in all probability be a mixture of BD41 with B50.

As soon as on the pores and skin it doesn’t actually oxidize however I used to be stunned that it adjusts and blends out completely. Most matte foundations are inclined to darken as soon as they dry on my pores and skin and I used to be actually happy that this one doesn’t.

Lasting energy is fairly spectacular. End is usually a little streaky if in case you have dry pores and skin, however this may be fastened with a very good moisturizer beneath and a few good mixing. General I prefer it however I nonetheless desire the Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Basis for formulation and the way it seems to be on the pores and skin.

Just a few swatch comparisons for reference. I’ll hyperlink my earlier critiques to different formulation beneath:

Le Correcteur de Chanel Longwear Concealer

I’ve acquired plenty of questions through the years in regards to the Chanel concealer and the way it compares to different manufacturers like Dior and NARS. To be frank, I’ve by no means been a brilliant big fan of the Chanel concealers. The formulation isn’t unhealthy, it’s simply not what I desire. End tends to be skinny, not creamy sufficient and the colours have at all times been a bit off for my pores and skin. Both too pale, too darkish or too pink in undertone. This spherical Chanel added extra shades with their Le Correcteur de Chanel Longwear Concealer.

Chanel Le Correcteur de Chanel

Components is light-weight with a gel-based formulation. It does the job at brightening and concealing the underneath eye. It received’t crease, it’s simple to mix, it has soft-focus pigments to diffuse mild with a brightening impact (however has no shimmer/glow).

General it’s first rate. It performs as described. I desire formulation which can be extra creamy and emollient. I don’t suppose it has sufficient protection for spot concealing though I didn’t strive the colour correctors to see if these work higher. I simply don’t suppose it’s the perfect on the market. For the same protection I desire the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer by far for the emollient texture and creamy really feel. I like the colour vary in NARS higher too.

For a shade match, the primary counter I went to was bought out of B40 so I went to a different retailer close by and didn’t understand till I obtained house that they bought me the previous formulation which is 40 Beige. So I’ve each the previous and new 40 colours to swatch for you facet by facet. Just a few movies I watched on YouTube additionally confirmed that the previous and new within the B20 shade are additionally completely different. I believe this is likely to be the case throughout the board that the colours are barely completely different.

I ordered the brand new B40 together with the B30 and BD31 to match. I do know plenty of you want one 1-2 shades lighter than your skintone for brightening. For me after testing all three, the perfect one for me is B40 however I believe it’s nonetheless a bit too mild and the subsequent shade deeper is just too darkish.

General I believe the brand new basis is an efficient primary semi-matte base that may supply medium pure protection and final all day. The concealer is first rate however in comparison with different manufacturers I might say a cross.
