Chanel Les Beiges

Written by:

Chanel Les Beiges Box

More Chanel on the blog today, this time focusing on a radiance-boosting, glow-giving face product: Chanel Les Beiges.  This is a tricky one to review as it’s actually quite a good product, but I don’t feel like the price tag is justifiable as I think with a bit of make-up know-how you could quite easily recreate a similar effect with cheaper products.  However, it’s still a product I’m using daily, so I thought it’d be worth a review.

Chanel Les Beiges Brush

Chanel Les Beiges is a powder that can be used for several different things depending on what shade you select.  To give you an idea, I’m extremely pale so I could’ve purchased No20 to be used as a non-flattening setting powder all over my face.  However, what it’s most commonly used for is a radiance-booster which is why I went for No30 – a shade darker than N020 – as I wanted to use this to add some warmth and radiance to my weary skin.

Chanel Les Beiges Powder

There are five shades available in total, with No10 being the absolute lightest and No50 being the darkest.  The packaging is typically Chanel; luxurious, wonderfully made and appropriately decadent.  Les Beiges also comes with a not-too-shabby brush that is more than suitable for on-the-go touch-ups and a good sized mirror in the compact itself.

Chanel Les Beiges

Chanel Les Beiges is an extremely effective product for adding a glowy radiance to the skin, which is what it’s mainly designed for.  However, the same can be said for the £11 cheaper Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzing Powder or even Rimmel’s £5.59 Sunshimmer for those who are extremely budget conscious.

What it usually boils down to when it comes to a Chanel product is the fact that you very rarely need it, but you want it anyway and I think that very much applies to Chanel Les Beiges.  Available now from all the usual places for £38.

  1. […] give you an idea, I’d say equal products on the market are things like Chanel Les Beiges (my review is here – although keep in mind that I bought one shade or so darker to add a bit of colour too) or […]
