Chanel Les Tissages de Chanel 140 Tweed Beige

Chanel LEs Tissages de Chanel 140 Tweed Beige swatch review

You slack off on blogging and some of the pretty things in your stash become quickly irrelevant in this fast-phased beauty world. Tweed Beige was a part of Spring 2019 Pierres de Lumiere Collection and is now only available on eBay and a few third-party websites with markups. Les Tissages de Chanel is a limited edition thing anyway. This spring we have Tweed Pink (repromoted, $45, Chanel).

Tweed Beige is a soft peach beige with gold overspray. I've owned this over a year now and used it quite often so the overspray is almost gone, but the color underneath is softly shimmery by nature.

Warm peachy blushes often look aging on me and wash me out, but I find Tweed Beige very easy to wear and even flattering on me. The pressed powder formulation is softer than the Chanel baked blushes so you can load up on the color easily if you want to. I myself like to wear it in "I'm not wearing any blush today" sort of way. Tweed Beige has this quality that brings the whole look together which is why I can either wear it with full-on smokey eyes or with minimal eyes and bold lips. 

For comparison, I have grouped a few similar shades of blush from my stash.

I'd say colorwise Tweed Beige looks closest to Becca Rose Gold, but the finishes are quite different. Being technically a highlighter Becca Rose Gold gleams in a more obvious way while Chanel Tweed Beige appears more subtle. (I am pleased to see with my own eyes that they all are different!)

Here is an overall look with Tweed Beige.

I can't say it is a must-have that you should go start hunting it on eBay, but I am happy that I have Tweed Beige in my blush collection. Chanel actually does beige and nondescriptive rose blushes so well that you might want to check them out.

Thanks for being here. I hope you have a restful weekend and the new week will bring us some good things. Stay well and safe, everyone.
