Chanel Le Teint Ultra Tenue: The perfect to-go foundation for touch-ups

It’s not easy to keep your foundation in tact and sheen-free throughout the day, not especially if you’re a #BossGirl and constantly need to run around town for meetings. But your fears will soon be quelled with Chanel’s new compact foundation, the Le Teint Ultra TenueTailored for the likes of every woman who needs an impeccable complexion from day to night, this is a beauty must-have in our books this spring. Here’s why:


Diving into its technicalities, Chanel Le Teint Ultra Tenue’s advanced formula actually diffuses and reflects light while diminishing the appearance of pores. This “2-in-1 hemispheric powder” has mineral pigments to unify skintone and leave a natural coverage—no more cakey thick-looking layers on your skin.

Want a shine-free finish throughout the day? This compact gives a long-wearing matte finish with its blend of zinc and polysaccharide powders too. Plus you don’t have to worry about constantly touching up—its combination of hydrophobic pigments, amino acids and resin enables it to stay put and resist sebum for perfect coverage.


For some of you skeptics out there, Chanel Le Teint Ultra Tenue Compact has been tested for its efficacy. According to an in-house test on a panel of 30 Asian women, this compact offered a flawless hour after eight hours of wear. We love that it comes in a range of seven beige to pink beige tones as well. A handy compact foundation with a chockfull of amazing benefits? Yes please.


Chanel Le Teint Ultra Tenue Compact (RM235) is now available at Chanel Fragrance & Beauty Boutiques and counters nationwide.
