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 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.
