Les Beiges De Chanel Healthy Glow Sheer Powder Review, Pics, Swatches

Ever since Gabrielle Chanel pioneered the sunkissed look in the 1920s, women the world over have sought to achieve a radiant, healthy glow. So it seems entirely fitting that Peter Phillips, Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, has launched the perfect product to help us do just that. Launching this week, Les Beiges De Chanel is a range of sheer, matte complexion powders, that Chanel have dubbed their most important makeup launch of the year.

So what sets these powders apart from your run-of-the-mill bronzing powder, then? A quick peek at this gorgeous 20 second clip, featuring Brazilian supermodel Giselle Bunchen, should set the scene. This launch is all about natural, healthy and effortless beauty - the powders are a shimmer-free zone, and subtlety is key.



I've been using, and loving, Shade 30, which is the third in the seven-strong range and ideal for my light-to-medium skintone. Lightweight and so finely milled that it feels creamy to the touch, this really lifts and enhances my complexion and gives me a lovely, natural looking glow. I never use bronzer, except to contour, but I find myself sweeping this across my face daily. Because it's sheer, it's pretty much foolproof -  there's no fear of depositing too much. I am absolutely hooked.

But it doesn't end there. In keeping with the modern trend for smart cosmetics, the formula is enriched with active botanicals to offer skincare benefits, too. Cotton flower and white rose plant cells help protect against pollution, dehydration and environmental stress factors, while an SPF of 15 fights sun damage.

Les Beiges De Chanel launches this Friday, 15th March, priced at €48. Spendy? Oh yeah. But it's also the best bronzing powder I've ever used, so if a healthy glow is what you're after, I would highly recommend.
