Chanel Duo No. 02 Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Colour ($65.00 for 0.39 oz.) is supposed to be used as a highlighting and contouring powder duo that gives a “sheer, natural finish.” Between the two duos offered, this is the “better” one, but it still falls noticeably short when it comes to being blendable and easy to use. I just think that the texture is far too firm, too stiff, and it translates into application, which is where it really counts. For some, this might be a happy accident, but the darker “contour” shade here is far from “sheer.”

No. 02 (Top) is a very light beige with subtler, warmer undertones and a fine shimmer-sheen finish. The texture was softer than the other shade’s highlighter, though it was still firmer and required a denser brush (I used a blush brush–most of my highlighter-centric blushes were too feathery/soft). It blended out decently and yielded a soft sheen that didn’t emphasize pores. It lasted for seven hours on me before fading. Cle de Peau Delicate Pink (14) (P, $55.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Lightscapade (P, $34.00) is lighter (95% similar). Laura Mercier Highlight 01 (P, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Climax (LE, ) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Cle de Peau Bal Masque (LE, $120.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight (P, $44.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). MAC Sparkling Rose (LE, $26.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

No. 02 (Bottom) is a bright, medium-dark coral-red with warm, orange undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a stiffer consistency in the pan, which made it harder to blend out and get it to look even/diffused on the skin. The color did wear for eight hours, which was an upside! Surratt Beauty Brillante Idée (P, $32.00) is warmer (95% similar). Colour Pop Fruit Stand (DC, $8.00) is cooler (95% similar). Smashbox Geranium (LE, ) is darker, cooler (95% similar). NARS Boys Don't Cry (LE, $41.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). NYX Tuscan (P, $6.50) is cooler (95% similar). Zoeva CR010 (P, ) is more muted, cooler (90% similar). MAC Painted Canyon (LE, $24.00) is cooler (90% similar). Fenty Beauty Daiquiri Dip (P, $20.00) is glossier (90% similar). Colour Pop Never Been Kissed (LE, $8.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). NARS Savage (P, $30.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Urban Decay Slowburn (LE, ) is darker, brighter, warmer (90% similar). Sephora Oh My Gosh (10) (P, $14.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Tweed Coralline (LE, $45.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Dior 999 (P, $44.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). Chanel Presage (62) (DC, $38.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Guerlain Peach Boy #1 (P, ) is warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

I have mixed feelings on the product because I really like the color and then delicate finishes. if it was half the price, I’d probably roll the dice and get it. If it was perfect then $65 seems fair. I’m surprised Chanel missed the mark so hard when most of their products are good quality and luxe. They always feel to expensive for me even they are perfect but I’m just too $$$ conscious these days!

Hmm, I’m not sure how anyone can use that coral orange as a contour powder, but at this price point, this needs an A. Both colors are very dupe-able for far less – I already have CP Fruit Stand, wearing it today, very brightening for face 🙂

The coral blush looks stunning on you Christine. I looked at this while I was in Seattle this past week and came close to buying it but decided to wait until you reviewed it. I am glad I waited. I will have to check out the dupes as I love the color. Those MUG eye-shadows are beautiful. Your eye look with them is amazing. Hope you have a nice weekend.

Even though it’s a PITA to apply, I gotta say it looks great once on! Funny how that can work, huh?
Sooo, as a result, I can definitely see either NYC Tuscan (been on my list for awhile already!) or Colourpop Fruit Stand becoming mine in the very near future! I do wish that Ulta sold the Nyx one IN-STORE, though.

This looks gorgeous on you, Christine. I’m crushed that the product is poor because both shades are lovely. Why, Chanel? Whhhhyy?!

I”m sorry this didn’t work for you!!! I actually really love this duo on me. I use my blush brush to sweep the highlight into the blush (aka mixing the two) and tap it on. On my skin (pale with pink undertones), it gives a really beautiful glow-from-within look. I guess the difference is I’m so pale that I don’t NEED a lot of color payoff. hahaha
