Healthy, radiant skin is a masterpiece to achieve and you should have your eye on the soon-to-launch Chanel Les Beiges Water-Fresh Tint (SGD106), an innovative liquid foundation serving up that coveted glow.
A first look through the transparent bottle and you’ll notice that unlike other foundations, the Les Beiges Water-Fresh Tint formula appears to be split with colour pigments suspended midair. This is intentional and thanks to a microfluidic technology, which has been used in the brand’s skincare and fragrance for some time, and now for the first time, in Chanel makeup.
The magic of this technology has allowed the incorporation of pure pigments into oil micro-droplets, which have been isolated from the watery base containing hydrating and soothing active ingredients. This gives the foundation a refreshing texture when applied and makes it so airy and ultra-fine in texture, you’ll feel as if you’re wearing nothing at all. The best part? It yields a luminous wash of natural light, people might think you just had a facial.
When dispensed from the pump bottle, the foundation is released in two phases, aqueous and oily, that remain separate until blended together. The product is accompanied by a dedicated brush, developed in parallel with the tint, for seamless blending and that naked skin look.
Use the Water-Fresh Tint on its own for sheer radiance, layer it as a glow-giving base or even as an illuminating finisher on areas, like the cheekbones, where you just need a little something extra.
Together with the highly-anticipated Water-Fresh Tint, the new 2019 collection will also see the addition of a limited-edition Natural Eyeshadow Palette (SGD139), also known as the ‘the indispensable palette’, with nine natural eye shadow shades that are compatible with all skin tones, and a tinted Lip Balm (SGD52) in a brick-red shade called Intense. There’s also the collectable Healthy Glow Sheer Powder (SGD89) in limited-edition packaging featuring a black-trimmed beige case with a spontaneous Chanel signature, the exact replica of Gabrielle Chanel’s sign-off, which is also embossed on the powder. Looking forward to it? The collection will be available in Chanel boutiques from 25 April 2019 and islandwide from 3 May 2019.
