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?
