Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder Review


“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.”

Peter Philips developed a powder that defines the former significance of powder again. A new step in the direction of natural beauty with a simple beauty step. For a healthy glow. The luxury of absolute simplicity: Healthy Glow Sheer Powder.

"A makeup must be simple to apply, without having to think about it," says Peter Philips. "And even though the package contains a wide-angle mirror, you can apply Les Beiges with his eyes closed. I guarantee the result is perfectly natural. "

The new formulation is available in seven, sheer shades, packaged in an exclusive beige color case. The shade ranges from No.10 to No.70 and the undertones are designed to complement Caucasian and Asian skin tones. Each powder offers SPF 15 / PA++ and is designed to imitate the glow attained by a walk outdoors.

The packaging is quite gorgeous. The powder comes with a half-moon brush, curved to contour the powder in the case and the face as its applied.

I tried the shade No.20, the compact powder looks dark but it fits perfectly on the skin because of its sheerness. The beautiful beige color makes my skin look instantly refreshed and relaxed . The powder creates a perfectly transparent porcelain complexion and gives my skin a wonderful glow. It softens the skin, enlarged pores are perfectly concealed. It didn't settle into the fine lines or look at all cakey. I didn’t feel like I was wearing a mask.

The texture of the Healthy Glow Powders is wonderfully silky soft and very fine. It can be easily applied with the half moon brush,but for even better results, I'd recommend a larger kabuki brush.

The coverage is rather light, just like the name says – sheer. Small imperfections are covered only slightly. For larger problem areas it is essential to use a concealer. The skin looks more even thanks to the powder. It gets a healthy glow and becomes softer. It does have a mild fragrance to it, but it’s a nice fragrance and it dissipates quickly once on the skin, so it isn’t too concerning and although i have very sensitive skin, it hasn’t caused any issues.

It’s comfortable, non-drying and works well to set foundation or just wear on its own. The powder is basically invisible on the skin, it takes away the shine without making it completely matte. It just leave me with a glowing, hydratated and healthy looking skin.

It's a sheer powder that won't cover up spots, but it does makes your skin look absolutely amazing. I recommend you check this powder out if you have paler skin like myself .
