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.
