Chanel Les Beiges

The past month I made it my mission to make the most of Chanel Les Beiges. After all, it's been quite an investment... to say the least. My colleague asked me: so what exactly does this powder do? Well, it was a good 'un, as I didn't have an answer ready. I'd describe Les Beiges as a very light-weight powder that gives light to almost no coverage and leaves the most gorgeous soft-focus veil behind on your skin. Depending on the shade you get, you can use it also for as a bronzer and for contouring. I got mine in B30, which is a tad on the warmer side at the moment. I've gotten this shade with the summer in my mind, as I tan quite quickly. That, and because with this shade I can also use this in autumn/winter (when I'm more fair) as a bronzer/contour powder, which is exactly what I've been doing.

I've been really enjoying it as a contouring powder and top my tinted moisturizer and with a sweep of Les Beiges for a warm glow. It doesn't contain any shimmer, thus is perfect for touching up, and it leaves the most subtle radiance/glow on the skin. Good-bye powdery powders, make way for the new generation.

Have you gotten Les Beiges already, what were your thoughts?




  1. Love Chanel make up! X


  2. I have been wanting to get my hands on this!!! So many people are talking about this powder and all the reviews have been positive thus far. I love the beige and black packaging too~~~


    1. The packaging is amazing! Though I love Chanel's classic black packaging, this beige-y one is just so chic! x

  3. This sounds so lovely. I've just written a post aboutmy ponderings on face powder, as it's not something I've ever really got - I know exactly what they are for, but all they seem to do for me is make me look cakey or chalky, even with the lightest possible hand. I figure if there is a powder that can change my mind then this is probably it, as Chanel makeup is of such beautiful quality. Not sure I'll be getting my hands on it any time soon though as it's literally three times the price over here! :(
    Hope you're having a good week hun.

    1. I'll check your post out during my lunch break :-). Before this I was not a big fan of powders, never been actually. I definitely recommend you trying it in store first to see how it wears. You can then save up and get it in duty-free when you fly back to the UK ;-). x


Thank you for your lovely comments, they really make my day!
I read and appreciate all of them. For quick answers to your questions, tweet me at @wngyee
