Mmm … you know when everyone and their aunt is raving about a product and you just never try it for whatever strange reason you may have? That’s me and the Chanel Les Beiges powders. Let me just say that I’m not quite sure what they are. Pressed powders? Finishing powders? Do they add colour? What?! Beiges? How blah is that?
But while on a shopping jaunt not too long ago, I found myself standing in front of the Les Beiges display at Chanel looking at the very pretty Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Colour powder. The pretty stripey detail reminded me of a pretty blush I own from the brand and I was sort of smitten.
Tell me you wouldn’t be too 😛
I haven’t bought anything from Chanel in a very long time and for some reason, I got it into my head that I wanted this powder. This is a limited edition powder that is part of the Les Beiges line, and comes in 2 shades, imaginatively identified as 01 and 02.
01 which you see pictured here is the lighter shade meant for fairer skintones. 02 is more bronzed and slightly deeper in tone for medium to deeper skintones. Each palette contains a highlighter at top, a Les Beiges powder in the middle and in the case of 01, a blush at bottom or in the case of 02, a bronzer.
Ideally, you could then use this powder in a few ways. You can blend all the colours and use it all over as a finishing powder to add glow and warmth to your skin; or you could pick up each colour individually and use them separately. Well, let’s just say that the latter ain’t gonna happen!
