Long title right, but “A Summer of Les Beiges” doesn’t really lend itself towards sounding overly exciting – who want’s a beige summer right? However, this collection was pretty much snatched out of my poor postmans hands before being ripped opened and photographed. It’s that good.
As the collection name might have already indicated, this isn’t a summer drop made for those who love the bright and pigmented, however for those of us who love a beach babe-esque, neutral look, or for anyone who has an onslaught of weddings over the next few months, this is perfect!
I’m going to quickly whizz past the packaging, as this is Chanel and we all know it’s drop dead gorgeous on the outside, but the inside? I’ve listed my loves and likes below for you…
LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW MULTI COLOUR No.02 (L.E): A multi toned powder that creates a healthy post-holiday glow without the holiday. Could you have already guessed that this would fall into the “LOVE” category? It’s super finely milled making it a breeze to blend and has SPF 15 too!
LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW SHEER COLOUR STICK No.20 A cream contour/bronzer in stick form – normally this would be on my love list one hundred percent, but with my current skin tone I just can’t get the right pigmentation out of it. It’s almost a cream to powder formula and is incredibly blend-able, to the point where it’s unnoticeable on my skin. This will be amazing on lighter skin tones and come winter I’m sure I’ll be cracking this out to add some extra warmth to my skin.
LES BEIGES LE VERNIS – PRECIOUS BEIGE & BEIGE PUR: Chanel, you are slowly winning me over with your nail polishes! The few I’ve tried recently have actually had decent wear time – no more chipping five minutes after application – Say WHAAAA?! It’s still not the best but I feel there’s been some kind of change recently, whether that’s in the formula or just my own nails are less prone to chipping? Either way These are two lovely neutral shades that are perfect for more formal summer occasions – they’re a little on the sheer side though, so a little more time is needed to get round to a third coat.
LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW HYDRATING LIP BALM (L.E) And last but most definitely not least – I think I’ve found my perfect nude! Sods law it’s limited edition. The hydrating lip balm is a beautiful nude rosey pink. It sits in between the formula of a balm and the rouge coco lipsticks – pigmented but not too sheer and not too lustrous. If you want to see what it looks like on then keep your eyes peeled for this in an upcoming video!
It’s available in stores from the 19th June, so keep an eye on your local counter and let me know if you pick anything up!
