Chanel Medium Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Colour ($58.00 for 0.42oz.) is a light-medium, golden brown with warm, yellow undertones and a satin sheen. It had sehmi-sheer pigmentation in one layer, which was buildable to medium coverage with two to three layers. On my skin tone (about light-medium), the color just barely showed up (more noticeable in person than in photos) with a subtle glow–natural and easy-to-wear, so for a true bronzing effect, it seemed like it would suit fair and light skin tones best and be more of a highlighting powder on light-medium and medium skin tones. The texture was soft, silky, and somewhat in the powdery side, so it had a tendency to sheer out a bit on the skin initially. The powder wore well for eight hours on me before fading.

Chanel described the formula as a “powder bronze and highlighter enriched with illuminating pigments” with a “buildable, soft texture.” The brand noted to select a shade lighter than your skin tone for highlighting and darker than your skin tone for bronzing–so it was less of a multi-tasking product and more that one could use it either as a highlighting powder or as a bronzing powder. I think you can get a little illumination and subtle warmth if you choose a shade similar to your skin tone, though, which is the closest to having the best of both worlds.

Chanel Deep Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Colour ($58.00 for 0.42oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish brown with warm undertones and a fine, golden micro-shimmer. It had medium, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across the skin. The texture was smooth, silky, and slightly powdery in the pan but applied well to my skin–even the drier areas–and had a subtle sheen. It wore well for just over eight hours on me.

Chanel Light Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Colour ($58.00 for 0.42oz.) is a light-medium peach with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had medium, buildable color payoff that sat well on the skin. The consistency was incredibly soft, smooth, and a little dusty in the pan, but I felt like it did not apply well to drier skin (my arm is drier, my cheeks are more normal-to-dry) and had a tendency to sheer out quite a bit without building up. If I applied it over just-applied liquid foundation, the powder went on more smoothly and was more noticeable. This shade should work better on very fair complexions for either bronzing or highlighting as well as light skin tones for highlighting–in photos, it didn’t show up at all, but in person I could detect it just barely on my skin. The powder seemed to last about eight hours on me.

Chrissy Teigen

Becca x Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette ($46.00 for 0.53 oz.) includes two highlighters, a blush, and a bronzer housed in a large, square-shaped palette. One of the four products is a repeat from the permanent line (Rose Gold), while the other three are exclusive to the palette. It’s well worth some consideration if you’re a fan of warmer cheek products in hues of peach, pink, and coral and like your shimmer. The four shades coordinated well with each other and layered nicely, blended without issue, and lasted well on the skin.

The palette contains $48.86 worth of Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed, $12.92 worth of Sunlit Bronzer, and $13.76 worth of Luminous Blush, which is a total value of $75.54.

Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base ($50.00 for 1.00 oz.) is a medium, golden brown with warm, yellow undertones and a barely-there golden pearl. It’s a lighter bronzer, which would make it more suitable for fair to light-medium complexions but is likely to get lost on medium and deeper skin tones–I wish it was available in more shades.

The formula is described as a “light cream-gel bronzer” that gives a “sun-bathed look” that can be worn on its own or “over or under” foundation. The consistency was denser, not at all spongy, and smooth like a gel but thinner like a cream product. Initially, there was a touch of dewiness as the product dried down, but within a minute or so, the product dried down and had a more satin-to-matte finish–not quite matte but not luminous or glossy at all. It was easy to buff along the edges of the face for an all-over warmth or applied more heavily to the cheeks. It had good pigmentation, which was buildable to true-to-pan coverage or easily sheered out for barely-there warmth. I felt like it had a more visible effect over foundation or over bare skin, and it worked well in either instance. Unless one wears a very, very sheer coverage foundation, it was largely lost when worn underneath a foundation.

MAC Baiana Bronze Bronzing Powder ($27.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, rosy undertones and a matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a really smooth, silky consistency that wasn’t dusty or powdery. The bronzer applied evenly to the skin, and it was easy to diffuse and blend out along the edges. Though it is a more pigmented bronzer, I felt like using a light hand with it (or a less dense brush) made sheerer coverage achievable without having to spend eons buffing and blending down the color. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

MAC Bronzing Powders are supposed to have “sheer coverage” and give a “natural finish” with “sun-kissed” color. Unfortunately, there was nothing sheer about this shade! If you prefer greater color payoff in your bronzer, I think you’ll be happy with this one, but if you want the sheer coverage as described, I would look elsewhere.
