Medium Light

Chanel Medium Light Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Colour ($58.00 for 0.42oz.) is a light-medium, yellowed peach with a satin sheen. The pigmentation was buildable from semi-sheer to medium coverage (three layers). The texture was very silky and finely-milled, but it was also powdery and kicked up a fair amount of powder in the pan. This also led to it being harder to apply on drier skin (like my arm) as the product did not adhere that well; it was less of a concern over my cheeks (more normal) nor when applied over freshly applied liquid foundation. I could see this shade working as a bronzer on lighter complexions, as only a faint sheen showed on my light-medium skin tone (easier for me to see it in person than in photos), but it could be used as a highlighting powder on light and light-medium, warmer skin tones without adding much color (if any!). The product wore well for 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.

Wow…this shade just falls flat. Cannot even make it out on your cheeks, either. Add to that the powderiness, and nope.
