Chanel Les Beiges review

What it is: A collection of summer beauty products — including several limited editions — from luxury French brand Chanel that promote a healthy glow and celebrate a natural makeup look. 

The line includes foundation, water tint, water blush, pressed powder and much more. 

Beauty bonus: The products are easy to use — and they perform.

Beauty bummer: As a few of these products are limited editions, if you don't act fast — you may just miss out.   

Overall: Full disclosure – I LOVE the Chanel Les Beiges Water Fresh-Tint Foundation. It's my go-to formula thanks to its lightweight texture, blendability, hydration ... the list goes on. 

So, needless to say, when I heard about the new Les Beiges Water-Fresh Blush, I was excited to give it a try. Featuring the same patented microfluidic technology as the foundation formulation, this blush range boasts micro-droplets of pigment suspended in an ultra-moisturizing base that's made of 75 per-cent water to hydrate the skin. 

I found a little went a long way, giving a pretty flush where applied, buffing onto skin seamlessly. The hue Light Pink was a fast favourite. 

Sure to be an IG/TikTok hit, the Les Beiges Oversize Healthy Glow Sun-Kissed Powder is a perfect addition to a summer makeup kit. With a silky texture and a subtle kiss of shimmer, it provided a soft sun-kissed glow wherever applied — be it face or body.

Speaking of application, the Oversized Kabuki Brush is a dream. The densely packed synthetic bristles and softly rounded shape make blending and building colour an easy feat. 

Last but not least, the product that I received several DMs about after posting a teaser to my IG Stories: the Les Beiges Illuminating Oil. The plant-derived dry oil features "light-reflecting pearly pigments" to give skin a glow so good the sun would be jealous. 

I found the formula took a lot of shaking to mix completely (it separates at rest), but after achieved, the Illuminating Oil smoothed onto skin nicely giving it a sleek, lightly fragranced effect. Unlike some shimmer-type oils, this formula doesn't provide a ton of shine, but rather a dose of luxurious hydration with the slightest liquid gold-like effect. 

Would recommend? Yes. 

Price: From $52-$107
