Chanel Les Beiges SPF15 Healthy Glow Sheer Powder


We often find ourselves recommending fab new foundations that Beauty Bible Loves, but only v-e-r-y occasionally stumble upon a powder that passes muster. This glamorous compact doesn’t just pass muster – it does so with flying colours. A recent experiment with a way-too-dewy foundation needed a fast fix – and we finally (sorry Chanel!) got round to trying this.

It’s sheer, yes – but the real clue is the ‘healthy glow’ name: it makes skin look flawlessly radiant without looking dewy/shiny/sweaty at all. Of course, like any powder, it makes foundation stay put for way longer.

And unlike most compacts in which the brush is way too fiddly to use (and thus goes straight in the bin), this curved option here is actually brilliant.

Five complexion-matched shades; N 10 has gone straight into our handbag for everyday use.
