Chanel’s summer look is one of those delicious caramel toned nude collections – warm and wearable with subtle colour nuances. There was nothing about the Chanel Les Beiges 2015 collection that I wasn’t internally screaming yes at! So, starting off with the Healthy Glow Multi-Colour Mariniere SPF15 Powder. There are two shades, so if you’re pale skinned you aren’t going to miss out, and surprisingly, although the shade above (No. 2) looks dark, once on the skin, it’s more subtle than you’d imagine.
Above is the paler version of the Healthy Glow Multi-Colour Mariniere SPF15 Powder, No.1. The texture of the powder feels almost hydrating – certainly it isn’t a dry powder at all, and it’s infused with shea butter, white cotton flower, and Vitamin D, so that might account for the creamy powder texture. Peeping out in the corner is Les Beiges Healthy Glow Hydrating Lip Balm – super-sheer, soft and hydrating with a boost of phytosterols. The shade above is a limited edition, No.10.
Swatch-wise, above is the balm, the healthy glow powder in Shade 2 and the same in Shade 1.
Of all the new products from the Chanel Les Beiges collection for 2015, these are what made my beauty heart sing! Three Healthy Glow Sheer Colour Sticks.
The Healthy Glow Sheer Colour Sticks (really surprised they aren’t called ‘batons’ or something.. ‘sticks’ seems a bit un-Chanel) are the perfect pops of colour to lift up the nude tones. They’re quite sheer, once blended, but enough, just, to enliven the complexion.
From bottom to top in the swatches are: No.20, No.22 and No. 21. No.20 is ideal for contouring or giving a light wash of bronze to cheek bones.
This is getting a bit picture heavy, so I’m going to cover the rest of the collection in Chanel Les Beiges 2015 Part 2.
