Chantecaille just skin tinted moisturizer review

As much as I'd love to have a flawless base, on a day to day basis, I can never be bothered with foundation. Instead I prefer to use something a little lighter. So for the last few weeks, I've been putting Chantecaille just skin tinted moisturizer to the test:

As tinted moisturizers go, this is on the thicker side. When I first used it, my immediate thought was that it felt more like a BB cream than a tinted moisturizer. I like to use my fingers to apply a pea sized blob and you can see in the photo below, it helps to add some warmth, even out my skin tone and disguise any minor areas of redness. Coverage is very sheer though, and you will still need a concealer for any dark circles and spots.

What really impressed me though, was that it gave the most natural radiant finish to my skin. It somehow managed to make my skin look glowy, but not at all shiny. In fact, I could have easily skipped powder, had it not been for the fact that my skin tends to get oilier if I don't. Compared to other tinted moisturizers, it seems to last longer too.

For reference, I'm using the shade Nude, which is a good match for my NC25 skintone.

At £57, this is the single most expensive item in my make up collection. Because of the price, I wouldn't say it's an absolute must have, but if you did want to treat yourself, then this would be a very good product to buy. Me personally? It's my favourite tinted moisturizer to date, so unless I find something better I probably would repurchase once this tube runs out.

  1. I have always thought that the Chantecaille products were so expensive and i would never invest in their products because i haven't heard too much about them. I have however read a few reviews on this tinted moisturiser and although it does seem to be a really good product, i think my skin would need a bit more coverage and i am totally in love with my Laura Mercier oil free tinted moisturiser. Glad your enjoying it though and thanks for the review~ It was interesting to read X x X x

    1. Thanks Ying, am glad you liked the review. I've heard a lot of good things about the Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser, am quite tempted to get a sample next time I'm out shopping x

  3. It looks good on you but its not enough coverage for me and the price is just ridiculous. Unjustifiable if you ask me!

  4. Ah you've definitely twisted my arm with this one ;-) I'm torn between shades Bliss and Nude as I know I'll want something a little darker for Summer but with a Space NK no where near me I'm gonna have to gamble it! Great review, it looks lovely on you! x

    1. Thanks Jessica, it goes on pretty sheer, so depending on your skintone you may be able to get away with both. That said, if you want something darker then I'd go for Bliss x

  7. Fook £57 for tinted moisturiser!!! I wouldn't spend that much on a face scrub.....okay I would but damn! I agree with the others the amount of coverage is fine for you but I need more. For that price I would want the new diet coke man to come an apply for me! :D

    1. Haha, not sure if I trust a guy to apply make up on me. Maybe he can just sit in the corner and look handsome instead x
