It’s no secret that the House of CHANEL can pretty much do no wrong in my eyes. From pret-à-porter pieces and couture gowns that are the stuff of dreams to lust worthy accessories, shoes, and cosmetics, each addition to the universe of CHANEL is conceptualized and created with incredible care and exacting standards. The latest offerings from the LES BEIGES DE CHANEL makeup collection are no exception to this admittedly lofty statement.
The collection is inspired by one’s radiance and health. Intended to highlight and enhance the wearer’s natural beauty, LES BEIGES DE CHANEL masterfully allows the wearer to have a flawless and effortless visage. With a gentle yet effective formulation, the Healthy Glow Gel Touch Foundation with SPF 25 has become my go-to foundation. The compact itself is beautifully designed and lends itself to being the first product you’ll want to grab to achieve a skin perfection. Containing 56% water, the formula is soft on the skin and delivers a beautiful dewy finish. The addition of SPF 25 and film-forming hyaluronic acid derivative provides protection and nourishment to the skin. Thanks to its expert formulation, the Healthy Glow Gel Touch foundation gives beautiful coverage without feeling or appearing heavy or caky. It’s truly a hero product and has become my go-to foundation since first trying the product. I’ve been applying it with the CHANEL Retractable Foundation Brush and application couldn’t be easier. I love that while totally compact thanks to the ultra-soft bristles being retractable, it nevertheless preforms like a top-quality foundation brush but can be stowed in your purse for on-the-go touch ups.
Already a hugely popular product in the CHANEL cosmetic universe, the Healthy Glow Sheer Colour Stick has two new shades added to the cheek color palette. A gorgeous coral and slightly iridescent pink give the wearer a healthy natural glow without looking overdone. I love that this product blends so smoothly on to the skin thanks to its velvety texture. A simple swipe or dot on the apple of the cheek followed by gentle blending (even done with the fingers!) results in a beautiful glow.
Personally, I would say that the Healthy Glow Natural Eyeshadow Palette is the real standout in a collection of already standout products. When I write that this might be the greatest natural eye shadow palette ever created, I’m not over-stating things. This is truly the ideal palette for creating both a gorgeous daytime eye and a stunning evening eye. With five shades designed to illuminate and give natural sparkle to the eye, you are virtually assured a gorgeous eye look with this palette. With a base pearly light beige shade that can even be worn on its own and two stunning light shades, a satin pearly pink and a matte brown for softening tired looking features and two darker tones, a satiny black and a matte taupe to outline and open up the eye, this is a true must-have for even the most casual makeup lover. For those who are not just makeup lovers but CHANEL lovers as well, this is an absolute necessity for your makeup bag or kit.
