I like CHANEL. This is no news to anyone. In fact I am convinced that the frequent exposure of the Double C’s on all my social media outlets has lead to me getting bumped off other beauty brands media lists. But I am like that, loyal to the bone and a creature of habit.
The new releases in the Les Beiges family have left me shrieking with joy – the entire range feels virtually made for the ”less is more” girls. Optimising the feeling of an outdoor glow, the CC cream provides medium coverage great for daytime, protects with an SPF of 50 and injects hydration.
The limited edition creamy blush stick (I use nr. 20 which is a muted bronze with a hint of shimmer) glides on rather sheer and may need to get topped up with a powder equivalent if you’re looking for a strong colour effect. I have also used mine on the eyelids, because a wise person skilled in the art of make up once told me that I could. 🙂
The 2015 Summer Collection also includes a healthy glow hydrating balm. The no.10 (which is the only colour released) is a rosy hue with shea-butter-like consistency. In other words you get 100 percent moisture and zero stickiness. Because the struggle of getting bouncy tresses stuck to your shiny lips is real.
Beige Pur and Precious Beige nail varnish shades are like cafe latte and almond nougat for your fingertips. Two applications suffice but three give solid coverage. (Remember to finish of the paint job off with a salon quality top coat for a prolonged result).
Last but not least – the Les Beiges Multi Colour powder can be applied as 3 different products or as an all over face powder. Like everything else CHANEL, the packaging itself makes me feel a little posh when flipped open in a ladies bathroom to everyone else’s envy. Clean, luxe and timeless the beige containers ooze of effortless elegance. Because who does’t want to be effortlessly elegant. XXX
The collection will be released worldwide in June 2015.
