[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] I did an Instagram post last week covering this product from CHANEL – I’ve been dying to try it and see how it measures up to the original Water Fresh Tint which I absolutely love. It’s somewhat different to the original in that it is more pigmented and I think ideally more for concealing or perfecting areas rather than an all-over tint. Perhaps when Tint comes back into stock, Complexion will be the concealing arm of that.
That’s not to say that it doesn’t work all over the face – it very much does, with slightly less of the water feel – it’s just that the accompanying brush isn’t really ideal for whole face but perfect for concealing or touching up.
There are 16 shades of CHANEL Les Beiges Water Fresh Complexion Touch so if you want it for the whole face you have more bespoke options for your tone. You can still see the pigment spheres in the ‘water’ base and they just blend seamlessly into a smooth, illuminating finish which is dewy without being shiny. I would say it’s less dewy than Tint and if you felt Tint was just a bit too sheer, you’ll be very pleased with this.
In the swatch, it’s B30 first which is the right shade for me followed by B40 which is a bit too warm for my tone just now. There’s less product – Touch is 20ml while Tint is 30ml and they’re both £51 (Tint out of stock everywhere still – really looking forward to doing the ‘back in stock’ post!). I’ve had to hunt around for the site with the most colours in stock (believe it or not, some are selling out already) and I’m sending you to Harvey Nichols HERE.
