As anyone who reads my blog will know, i am a big fan of Chanel beauty, especially Les Beiges.
I have a couple of different Les Beiges powders and they are fantastic for giving the skin that fresh healthy glow wth a touch of subtle colour.
The Original Les Beiges Healthy Glow Powder.
Les Beiges Healthy Glow powders perfect and blur to give a beautiful everyday finish; however, the original ones do this with a matte finish. They don’t add a ton of colour to the face rather, a more natural ‘lit from within’ finish with a hint of colour.
Chanel are never about over statements with their makeup, more the subtle approach to make an impact with a natural look. Makeup afterall, is there to enhance what you already have and not to give the ‘Drag Queen/Instagram’ effect.
The new Les Beiges Luminous Colour powders for Summer 2017, offer a luminous finish, as the title suggests.
The New Les Beiges.
I picked up medium, (proving to be a very popular shade) and i also want the medium deep for a more bronzed effect.
The compact is still in the same beige/off white retro packaging and comes with a white, super soft half moon brush to use on the go. These little brushes are great for travel.
The fragrance is the typical Chanel aroma which disappears on contact with the skin and; the powder itself is notably different in the compact to the original because, it comes with a raised stripe effect pattern and has subtle golden shimmers to it.
Another difference to the powder is, it’s quite loosely pressed this time in comparison to the original powder which means, one little dab with a fluffy brush picks up quite a lot of product.
The swatches (below) show a warm golden toned powder that will suit fair skin tones without looking like a bronzing powder. It will give you a subtle colour change. Medium deep and deep should be suitable if you want a bronzed effect.
The very fine powder gives a gorgeous illuminating silky golden finish to the skin. Absolutely stunning!
Even though the powder shows golden shimmers in the compact, this does not transfer to chunks on the skin rather, a more luminous blurred effect.
I never found any highlighting of any pores or fine lines at all. I did use it on the high points of my face to lift and highlight and it also gave my skin a beautiful warm golden tone.Lovely! Chanel have really excelled here.
With regards to longevity, I couldn’t have picked a better couple of days to wear it. Both days were very hot in work and i did eight and a half hour shifts. This wore really well without fading.
The only downside i have is, it doesn’t have an SPF in this new powder, It is only a slight distraction for me though.
I want another and i plan to buy one. I will go for medium deep to give a more deeper tone to my skin; however, this is still beautiful and gives a lovely warm glow to the skin. Great for fair skin and they are permanent.
If you love the original Les Beiges, you will probably adore these even more. This is a great, long wearing highlighting colour powder.
Chanel have outdone themselves here and are about to knock it out the park again with the fantastic new single eyeshadows too.
I’m guessing that they don’t need Peter Philips after all.
Have you tried the new Les Beiges Illuminating Colour Compacts yet?
Right; with the healthy glow luminous powder in medium over base Chanel CC cream.
Take care and i will see you all soon. 🙂
