Chanel Medium Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Colour ($58.00 for 0.42oz.) is a light-medium, golden brown with warm, yellow undertones and a satin sheen. It had sehmi-sheer pigmentation in one layer, which was buildable to medium coverage with two to three layers. On my skin tone (about light-medium), the color just barely showed up (more noticeable in person than in photos) with a subtle glow--natural and easy-to-wear, so for a true bronzing effect, it seemed like it would suit fair and light skin tones best and be more of a highlighting powder on light-medium and medium skin tones. The texture was soft, silky, and somewhat in the powdery side, so it had a tendency to sheer out a bit on the skin initially. The powder wore well for eight hours on me before fading.
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.
