If you drop by this blog with any regularity, you’ll know I’m an absolute fan of Chanel products. However, with Chanel Sublimage Le Teint I think either I’m missing something completely or it’s just *whispers* not great. The promise is radiance – and this is texturally very hydrating so I think better for older skin or very dry skin – but I just don’t see it on my face. I do see dewiness (the friend of older skin) and it feels beautiful, but meh.
It looks all of the glamour – of course – with a soft brush included for application and the shade I have here is Beige 20. I’m Shade 40 in Chanel Healthy Glow Foundation, so unsurprisingly it’s too light for my skin (maybe in winter). I used the brush in testing and it does apply nicely – you can buff it around until you feel the coverage is exactly as you’d like.
Bearing in mind that it contains diamond powder and costs £98, I think it’s a rare mis-step from Chanel this time around, unless you have exceptionally dry skin. Chanel has made this a skin care / make up hybrid, and Chanel skin care is under-rated (it’s exceptionally good but prices out many consumers) so maybe if you look at it more as a skin care item than a make up item it does better. It certainly is moisturising with a 12 hour slow release, you will get a ‘dewy’ effect with light to medium coverage, but the side of my face wearing this doesn’t look any more radiant that the side that isn’t and there is no getting past that one.
