Chanel has just released a new collection – Les Beiges Chanel. I know so many of you in Europe/USA might have seen this collection earlier but this collection has just hit Singapore stores last week. Initially I wanted to pick the powder but I ended up picking up the All in One Healthy Glow Cream . I was told by the SA that this is an Asia Exclusive product, but if anyone has a different information on this, please correct me.
Chanel All in One Healthy Glow Cream comes in a identical packaging with the Chanel CC Cream (reviewed here). The only difference is the color of the tube. Chanel Les Beiges Cream comes in a soft nude tube while Chanel CC cream comes in a white packaging. There’s nothing special in this squeezable tube. It’s light, simple and just too plain for my liking.
CHANEL Les Beiges Cream has a very light texture. It is one of the lightest base make up I have ever owned. If you have tried MUFE HD foundation, Chanel Les Beiges Cream has a similar texture to it but this is even lighter. The coverage is medium. Les Beiges Cream helps to conceal my dark circles and small spots. However when the time of the month come, it doesn’t help to conceal few pimples that pops out. Les Beiges Cream gives a healthy glow finish. I love how my face looks like upon application. It makes my face looks fresh and not oily.
Les Beiges Cream stays on my face throughout the day. I don’t see it fades at the end of the day. Please note that my skin is normal but oily on the T-zone. My T-zone area looks normal after 6 hours of wearing, but after 9 hours it starts to fades.
This base make up has a very nice scent in it. It is the signature Chanel skincare smell which I really like. The smell fades away quickly upon application, so for you who dislike scent in a product, this might not be a problem as it fades quickly.
CHANEL Les Beiges All in One Healthy Glow Cream comes in two shades; #10 and #20. The SA recommended me to get #10 as Les Beiges collection is created to give more healthy glow and radiant. The shade blends into my skintone nicely. It doesn’t make me look pale at all.
Comparison with other foundation:
I did a comparison between Chanel Les Beiges Cream and my other foundation staples
Chanel CC Cream – Le Beige Cream #10 – Chanel Perfection Lumiere #12 Beige Rose – MUFE HD #117 – Kiehl’s BB Cream Fair
Compared to Chanel CC Cream, Les Beiges cream has a lighter texture. However the coverage is similar. The Chanel SA told me that CC cream has a skincare benefits whereas Les Beiges Cream is just a base make up that helps to brighten the skin. Personally I feel that I like the Les Beiges Cream better because of it’s light texture. I like Chanel CC cream too but sometimes I feel it’s a bit too thick for CC Cream. CC Cream is thicker n its texture, therefore Les Beiges is more suitable for people with oily skin rather than CC Cream.
If I have to compare Les Beiges Cream to Chanel Perfection Lumiere; I’d say both are very different. Perfection Lumiere has a matte finish and the coverage is medium to full coverage. Les Beiges is much lighter and has a glowy finish.
Kiehl’s BB Cream is light and brighten my skin too; These two are similar in their texture – both are light. However Les Beiges provide better coverage. Lastly, the comparison between MUFE HD foundation and Les Beiges Cream. MUFE HD has a light texture but Les Beiges is a bit lighter than MUFE HD. In terms of coverage, MUFE HD provides better coverage than Les Beiges Cream.
Chanel Les Beiges All in One Healthy Glow Cream is a good base make up that provides light texture with a nice coverage for daily use. It makes my face looks glowy without making it look oily. However I don’t think Chanel Les Beiges Cream is not something special that you should have. It’s a very nice product but not the highly must have product on my list.
