Review: Chantecaille Just Skin

I've had the Chantecaille Just Skin tinted moisturiser for a few months now, so I thought it was about time I posted a full review here on my blog.

Now, to start off with, the most important factor to tell you about this product is the price. It's ridiculously expensive. Chantecaille is one of the most premium makeup brands on the market at the moment and they have price tags to match. I um-ed and ah-ed about purchasing this for a while and I finally caved, despite the £55 price tag (mainly due to peer pressure from a certain Tanya Burr!). It's the only product I own from Chantecaille and my expectations were high... so was it worth the money?

Annoyingly, I have to say... I just can't make my mind up!

The product is undeniably lovely. It's a fantastic, thick consistency and provides sheer coverage with a fresh skin-like (hence the name!) finish. It's a wonderful product for summer (with SPF 15) and I like to use it in conjunction with my Make Up For Ever Full Cover concealer for a natural, yet flawless look. The staying power is good for a tinted moisturiser, about 5-6 hours before it starts to disappear on the skin.

Overall this is a lovely product however I do think there are equally as nice alternatives out there for significantly less money. I'm thinking of YSL Teint Touche Eclat, Laura Mercier's Tinted Moisturiser and NARS' tinted moisturiser to name just a few. All of these are still high-end luxury brands, but around half the price of the Chantecaille option. It is for that reason that, while I will finish this product and thoroughly enjoy it, I don't think I'll be repurchasing it when I run out.

So there it is ladies... a confusing review I'm sorry! I am slightly sitting on the fence with this one.

What do you think? Have you tried Just Skin, or any other Chantecaille products? Do you think they are worth the money?

You can get Chantecaille Just Skin from SpaceNK, priced at £55 for 30ml.
