Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder SPF 15/PA+++ No 10


Description from Chanel Website:
Inspired by the passion for freedom of Gabrielle Chanel, the CHANEL Makeup Creation Studio has designed LES BEIGES, a new spirit of makeup that is simple and intuitive. Free like a breath of fresh air. Spontaneous like the perfect getaway. Enveloping like a caress of light.

LES BEIGES reveal the healthy glow of each woman and provide a sensation of lightness, well-being and freshness. LES BEIGES compact powder gives your skin the fresh, pure radiance of days spent outdoors. Each woman’s intuition guides the brush as it sweeps across the face to create a personalized makeup result intensified with each sweep of the brush. Its five luminous and natural shades reveal a sheer, healthy glow. The fine, lightweight and antioxidant powder shields the skin from environmental stress and sunlight thanks to its SPF 15 / PA++ sun filter. Its ultra-protective formula, enriched with cotton flower and white rose plant cells, becomes one with the skin. It is gentle on all skin types, even the most sensitive. The Healthy Glow Sheer Powder also features the iconic CHANEL compact case, dressed for the first time in beige, the timeless and exclusive beige that Gabrielle Chanel loved so much. Its big mirror, with a larger inclination angle, and its half-moon powder brush made of 100% natural hair make for an easier application.

LES BEIGES: Natural is a style.


Suggestion on How to Use from Chanel Website:
Delicately take the powder with the half-moon brush for a light, sheer finish. Apply to the entire face, working from the middle outwards with large sweeping movements. To sculpt or define the face, use the tip of the half-moon powder brush on cheekbones, the upper forehead, and the chin or on the bridge of the nose.

Wear the powder on its own for a naturally enhanced complexion or over foundation for an extra touch of radiance.Chooese a tone-on-shade, based on your skin tone, or a slightly more intense shade for sun-kissed effect. 


My Experience
First of all, I love how high-end makeup always have velvet pouch to protect their packaging. Chanel Les Beiges compact looks very elegant. Classic beige & black with Chanel logo on it. It has a big mirror inside so I can easily see my entire face. Whenever I use it in the ladies room, so many women can’t avoid staring at this beautiful thing. Touching up my makeup becomes more sophisticated ritual. However the compact feels a  little bit slippery, so be careful when holding it. 

Inside, there is plastic ‘pad’ to separate the powder and the brush. I think it just ridiculous, why doesn’t Chanel create separate compartments? The plastic is impractical. The half moon brush looks cute however I find that it doesn’t really pick up the product. I prefer to use my kabuki brush. 


The smell of the powder is pretty, like roses, slighty reminds me of Chanel Coco Noir and Coco Mademoiselle. It is quite strong and I can smell it when I open the compact. However I find that it doesn’t linger on the face.

When applied, the powder goes on sheer, I mean it is really really sheer, doesn’t give a good coverage. It is good for someone who has nearly perfect skin and just wants a little coverage.  The finish is fresh, glowing and very natural. Suits for people with normal to dry skin. For oily skin ladies who likes their face matte, then this product is not for you. It doesn’t control oil either. The good thing is they have SPF 15/PA +++ to add more protection.

Pros: 
  • Beautiful Packaging 
  • SPF 15/PA +++ 
Cons:
  • Expensive 
  • Brush doesn’t really work on picking up product 
  • No oil control
Neutral:
  • Sheer coverage. Suitable for someone who don’t want tons of coverage. 
  • Fresh, glowing, natural finish. Suitable for normal to dry, and dull skin. 
  • Pretty rose scent. Some people like it, some people prefer their face products unscented.
