A Strong Foundation

Our new Real Skin+ stick with 12 skin-matching shades has been a long time in the making.

Sylvie is renowned in the beauty world for her skin shade-matching foundations. Her legacy started with Prescriptives, a legendary cosmetics brand she established under the guidance of Estée Lauder herself in 1979. For nearly two decades, Sylvie pioneered the launch of umpteen products based on a revolutionary shade-matching technology that transformed the industry and, for the first time, offered women foundations that actually matched their skin.

With Chantecaille, Sylvie and Olivia continued the tradition of game-changing foundation innovations with Just Skin, an ahead-of-its-time BB cream. Launched in 2008, the smoothing tinted moisturizer was infused with anti-inflammatory thyme and butterfly bush extracts. One year later, they truly broke the mold with Future Skin, a genius gel formula with a base of 60% water and skin-soothing botanicals like microalgae and aloe. Beloved by makeup artists and devoted customers, the foundation has a cult following and has received an Allure’s Best In Beauty award for its innovative formula. Achieving tones that truly mimic real skin is a meticulous science, and our legacy in this space is one we take very seriously. This fall, the innovation continues with the launch of Real Skin+ Eye and Face Stick—with 12 skin-matching shades, our most inclusive range yet.

"Achieving tones that truly mimic real skin is a meticulous science, and our legacy in this space is one we take very seriously."

Infused with hydrating Raspberry stem cell extract and Hibiscus extract for its anti-aging benefits, Real Skin+ is an all-purpose foundation stick that leaves skin looking both flawless and natural. The stick formula is super easy to apply—even on-the-go—and blends so easily with your fingertips you might just say goodbye to that beauty sponge for good. Also? The lightweight, creamy formula feels feather-light on the skin, even while offering real-deal concealer coverage. Sylvie says, “Our foundation family is extremely strong, and Real Skin is an exciting addition. Creating this stick took a very long time because we were uncompromising about how soft, blendable and natural-looking the formula is”.
