Hi there I just left the Chantecaille counter. Here are the swatches that I made at the counter. The foundation does seem to have quite a bit of slip to it. The bullet is really small. I feel like you would probably do OK with 0W Which seems to me more like an NC 10 to NC 15.
backstory: I wanted a non-liquid foundation for travel/ carryon. I ended up buying the Armani balm foundation instead of this. It just looked really good on my skin and although the Chantecaille is creamy and really very emollient. As a brand I know and trust Armani more and I need to leave later this week on a trip so I kind of freaked out and just decided. I hope you find this swatch helpful. The lighting is not the best here.
Thanks so much for the swatches and your thoughts! I was thinking the bullet looked really small in pictures too. Guess how big a problem that is depends how much you use/how pigmented it is. I do remember that back in the day when Real Skin was in compact form I rarely used it because even though it looked absolutely amazing on I’d go thru it in no time. It always comes down to the ingredients for me in the end because I have uber sensitive skin and can’t use anything with fragrance, essential oils and lots of other things. Have you seen the Westman Atelier thread here? There are some videos in it you might find helpful as far as getting a better idea of that one. I’m wearing it over a more emollient moisturizer today and am liking it a lot. Actually my Future Skin seems to be fine over this moisturizer too which is really great. Enjoy your new foundation and your trip and thanks again!
