Chanel Le Blanc Oil-in-Cream Compact Foundation

As part of a series of new additions to the Le Blanc range, Chanel recently released an innovative compact foundation which marries skincare benefits with makeup expertise.  The Chanel Le Blanc Oil-in-Cream Compact Foundation is a new generation cream compact foundation that is unlike anything I have ever tried.  Just like the Les Beiges Gel Touch Foundation [reviewed here], I am completely in love!

Chanel Le Blanc Oil in Cream Compact Foundation

The Chanel Le Blanc Oil-in-Cream Compact Foundation is infused with the ume flower oil which is able to stimulate skin repair, brighten and boost moisture level.  It comes in a round “cushion” format that has a swing lid that snaps shut over the product to keep it from drying out, and a luxuriously smooth and plush sponge.  The product looks like a cushion, but is actually a lightweight silky cream that transforms into the texture of oil once it touches skin.  Formulated with a Smart Thermal Complex, the Oil-in-Cream Compact Foundation feels cool and crisp on the skin, and maintains a “buffer” throughout the day, protecting the skin from extreme changes of temperature and humidity.  I especially appreciate that it comes with SPF40 / PA++ sun protection.

Coverage is light-medium though slightly buildable.  It evens out skin tone beautifully, giving a luminous glow that lasts all day.  I  love how it smoothens out my pores and gives my skin a porcelain-like finish.  For stubborn spots, extreme dark circles and redness around the nose, I still require a separate concealer.  On my dry combination skin, Chanel Le Blanc Oil-in-Cream Compact Foundation stays on well all day without fading or oxidizing, though it does get a little shiny after 5 hours’ wear around the t-zone, but far superior to any other cream foundation I have ever tried.

The texture is so comforting on my skin, it is truly unique and unlike anything I have ever tried.  There are 6 shades available, and 20 Beige suits me perfectly.
