CHANEL Beauty recently launched two new foundations, Le Teint Ultra Tenue powder foundation and Le Teint Ultra Tenue liquid foundation. They are both long wearing formulas with a luminous matte finish. The Le Teint Ultra Tenue compact replaced Double Perfection which was discontinued earlier this year. Initially, I had a love hate relationship with these new additions to the family but after playing around with them for a few weeks I’ve come to really love them an appreciate how different they are from the rest of CHANEL’s foundations. In the video above, I give an in-depth review as well as my personal tips for how to apply each foundation but here is a basic breakdown:

Le Teint Ultra Tenue Compact

  • SPF 15
  • Long wear, luminous matte finish
  • Identical packaging to Double Perfection, comes with sponge applicator
  • Can be used dry for medium to full coverage or wet for a sheer light to medium coverage
  • $60 retail price
  • Perfect for quick and easy application, throwing in gym bag or work tote

Le Teint Ultra Tenue

  • Same packaging as Perfection Lumiere, totally different foundation
  • No SPF listed on package
  • Dries quickly so you must work in sections on the face
  • Be careful to keep application seamless around hair and jaw line
  • Very long wearing, sweat proof
  • Perfect for events, photographs, weddings
  • $60 retail price
  • Wide shade range in beige and beige rose tones, several darker shades too
  • Not forgiving in fine lines, must prep skin with moisturizer and wear a primer
