The premise of Chanel Les Beiges is to provide a light bronzing effect with no shimmer, and I have to say, being a bronzer-phobe for the glitter-face reason, it is really effective.
It comes with its own integral brush.
I have Shade 30 here, and it’s not show up quite as brown as it actually is, but it is pretty near perfect for my medium tone. I love the fact that it just gives your face a very lightly tanned look – I’ll use the word sun-kissed, because it’s appropriate here – and rather than a healthy glow as such, it’s more just a look of wellness. As someone who not only doesn’t ever use a bronzer, but is also completely powder shy (too drying), this is something of a revelation and I will definitely use it. The powder formula is literally weightless and quite creamy, although I think the brush is too flimsy for the purpose and I used a different one.
This launches next week and I’d highly recommend it.
