Every year I look the most forward to the Les Beiges collection from CHANEL, even more than the holiday one! The reason for this is because I have been using 3 Les Beiges products (Healthy Glow Powder, Lip Balm and Blush Stick) every single day for years and years. I can’t even imagine my makeup routine without those products. That’s why I get so excited for the new collection, and this season they are coming out with some products we haven’t seen before!
Chanel Les Beiges Eau de Teint Water-Fresh Tint
Available in 6 shades – € 60,00
Beauty and innovation in one scentence, sounds like music in my ears. When I saw that CHANEL was pushing its limits of innovation by releasing this new product, it caught my attention straight away. Let me introduce to you the first water-fresh tint by CHANEL: Eau de Teint.
When you look at the packaging, it might remind you of the Hydra Beauty serum. And this isn’t without a reason, because the technology behind it, is quite similair. The ultra-light formula of this product is composed of 75% water, and for the first time they have also introduced microfluidics in a foundation product.
When you first apply the product on your skin with the brush (comes included) it feels very fresh, because of the jelly texture. Just a few seconds later the micro-droplets melt onto the skin, releasing the pigments, which become one with the complexion and create this luminous finish. I haven’t tried any other foundation, which gives such a natural and ”bare-skin” effect. I think the pictures below, show exactly how the result looks in real life too. CHANEL, where have you been all my life with this product? I definitely know that I’m going to forget my foundation and use this all summer long!
Did you know that you can use it in 3 different ways?
- 1. Primer: for a luminous makeup result, you can apply the tint all over the face as a primer, then follow with CHANEL foundation.
- 2. Makeup: for a natural-looking, bare-faced effect you can apply the tint on its own.
- 3. Touch-up: to even out and refresh your complexion, you can apply the tint on top of your CHANEL foundation too during the day.

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder
Available in 7 shades – € 57,00
A product that I’m already very familiar with is the Healthy Glow Powder. As I said in the introduction I have been using this product for over 3 years now on a daily base. But what is special about this one specifically is the limited edition packaging! Not only on the case itself, but embossed in the powder too you will find the exact replica signature of Gabrielle Chanel herself. So special and a very nice touch!

Chanel Les Beiges Natural Eyeshadow palette
Available in 1 shade – € 85,00
If I could pick one nude eyeshadow palette in my stash and keep it for the rest of my life, it would be the new Les Beiges Natural Eyeshadow Palette! You can’t go wrong with any of these shades and they come in many different textures. Lucia Pica (Chanel Global Creative Makeup and Colour Designer) made sure to make this palette foolproof. “I wanted a palette that ensures intuitive and obvious makeup application,” points out Lucia Pica. “There’s no need to overthink. Simply let the color guide your hand and have fun. Each of the nine colors is compatible with all skin tones, from the fairest to the darkest. Just like the other palette, the formula of these shadows is absolutely amazing, they blend so easily on your lid. A true musthave in your collection!
Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Lip Balm Intense
Available in 1 shade – € 37,00
The Healthy Glow Lip Balm is another item, that I’m using on a daily base. Even though I’m trying to be very carefull, because the shade I’m currently using is a limited edition too. Every time I get really excited when they release new shades and so did they this year too. The Intense shade is designed to naturally match all skin tones. What I love about this balm is how creamy and moisturizing it is, but still gives your lips a beautiful color. You can wear it on your own, or combine it with another CHANEL liptick.
