Light

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.

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.

I’m not wowed or interested in this. I’m very close in skintone to you Christine. And it seems too light to be a blush/bronzer, and too subtle to be a highlight for me, and my needs.

Yeah, this shade is likely not the most ideal for our skin tone! 🙂 There are five shades and I promise at least one does show up on me (noticeably in photos!)!

Invisi-powder! I was seriously straining to see it, but my guess is that, yep, it would show up on someone with extremely fair/pale skin.

However, I had to let you know how much I’m loving your eye look and lipstick shade here!

Definitely one for lighter skin tones if used as a bronzer and then a little too subtle overall to show up well on camera (as a highlighter)!

I was terribly disappointed with this product. Not only was it dusty in the compact, but it never melded with my skin (even with an über light application) and an artificial, somewhat frosty look that was not in the least bit flattering. It seriously disappointed in that it just visibly sat on the surface of my skin making it look dry and dusty I very seldom return a product, but made an exception for this one. I returned it and exchanged it for the regular Les Beiges powder in #10 which does give a natural, healthy, real-skin glow.

Interesting to hear that it looked more frosty on you! I’m glad you were able to return it for something you liked more!
