Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation


Chanel makeup purchases are always exciting - the products are pure luxury and the packaging is just so beautiful and I feel special even just using the product. So when I heard Chanel had released a new foundation I was super excited to try it since I've not found one from them before.


When it comes to foundation, I like a light-to-medium coverage with a luminous finish. When I've tried Chanel foundations before they've never sat how I wanted them to on my skin and so this was something I really wanted to work.

In short, I'm obsessed. It's just a beautiful foundation. It's supposedly a sheer foundation however, I definitely think it's more of a medium coverage foundation which has the ability to either be build up or sheered down depending on the amount of product used and the application technique. It is a lightweight formula, so even when it is build up to a slightly fuller coverage, it isn't heavy on the skin and due to the luminosity of the foundation, it doesn't look heavy.

One thing that really got me hooked on this was that it lasted all day. I do have normal/dry skin but I still have problems with general wear with most foundations. I typically find that foundation wears unevenly on my skin - the drier spots often become a bit patchy - however, this wears beautifully. The formula includes hyaluronic acid which helps to hydrate the skin which will contribute to this!

There are only 9 shades to pick between which really limits who can wear this, which is completely unfair. Everyone needs to be able to try this foundation - I'm that in love. My only downfall with the product is that it has SPF (SPF 25 intact) which is partially a good thing - it can help protect the skin from sun damage however it causes flash-back with flash-photography. This is such a beautiful foundation that I would want to wear on a night out but it would make me look ghostly in photos. It would be ideal for MUA's to use for catwalks etc too but they can't because of the SPF!

I think this is going to become Chanel's most popular foundation because it really is so beautiful. You definitely need to pop to a counter and grab a sample of it if you can find a shade that will work for you! I'm definitely going to repurchase this when I'm out and since I purchased this in my tanned colour, I'm going to pick up my natural colour too!

Let me know if you've tried it or if you're going to pick it up!

You can buy it online from Feel Unique!
