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).

Chanel LEs Tissages de Chanel 140 Tweed Beige review

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.

  1. Tweed Beige looks beautiful, I do like wearing blushes with gold shimmer, especially in the summer. I like that it's sheer as well, it makes the cheeks look slightly dewy which I think is nice during the summer months :).

    I agree that products and collected seem to be hyped for a few months and then suddenly never mentioned again. It's hard to keep up most of the time!

    1. Tweed Beige is probably the most subtle blush with gold shimmer that I own. I can imagine that it would work as a soft highlighter on medium skin tones as well.

      I used to try prioritizing "newer stuff" when it comes to blogging but now I couldn't care less. It's more fun this way, I must admit! :D

  2. It looks very everyday wearable. I had a Chanel tweed blush once, (can't remember which) and I loved it and wore it to death, literally, I used it so much that the tweed design completely wore off and ended up with a blush that was one square on one side the darker colour, and another square on the other side the lighter colour. Yes, thats what they turn into after using them 500 times...

    1. Ooh, I'd love to see something like that happen to my tweed blush!! Honestly though, I never even hit pan on any blush (a few eyeshadow pans maybe). I do love looking at well-loved makeup photos. They are strangely satisfying! :D I still prefer the baked formula from Chanel but I'd certainly look out for these LE tweed blushes. Every now and then, they bring out really interesting colors. :)
