Les Beiges is the one make-up assortment I stay up for every year, with out fail. Whereas it’s not probably the most thrilling of make-up merchandise, it fits me – easy, primary, impartial. But, there may be usually nothing quite simple, primary or impartial about it. Usually, the merchandise impress me, even after they don’t impress others. I suppose it comes down to non-public preferences.
That is true of Chanel Les Beiges Wholesome Glow Basis. Launched in 2016 (the place I attempted and reviewed it), after which quietly disappearing, solely be relaunched final yr in the midst of a pandemic when most individuals have been in lockdown and never leaving homes, ergo, not placing on make-up.
I nonetheless don’t exit very a lot, and I don’t do video calls, so placing on make-up has been one thing that I haven’t gotten right down to doing.
However after I did deign to put on any make-up in any respect, I gave the brand new Chanel Les Beiges Wholesome Glow Basis Hydration and Longwear a strive, and I used to be blown away. This was even higher than its predecessor!

The feel of the inspiration is now mild and liquid, not as thick and clumpy as what it was. It’s way more hydrating and feels lighter on the pores and skin than what it used to.
I’ve a choice for very mild protection (my favorite base is the Les Beiges Water-Contemporary Tint!) and this basis is a step up from the Les Beiges Water-Contemporary Tint. It presents just a little extra protection, however with out compromising on hydration.
But, because the title implies, it’s pretty longwearing. I didn’t check it for hours on finish, as I used to earlier than after I labored in an workplace. However for many of us, it is going to serve its function. It lasts lengthy sufficient, with out drying out your pores and skin to a husk.

However I choose the pure glow that comes when the product settles onto the pores and skin and mixes together with your pores and skin oils. It makes you look fresh-faced but pure. Nobody will consider you’ve make-up on – and that’s the way it ought to be! 😉
No extra SPF within the basis
Apart from the change and overhaul of the formulation, Chanel has additionally accomplished away with the SPF25 within the earlier model of this Wholesome Glow basis. Personally, it doesn’t bug me.
Sunscreen is for me, skincare and I preserve it separate, at all times guaranteeing I put on enough sunscreen earlier than doing my make-up. It shouldn’t hassle you both 😛
I haven’t appeared round on the new foundations on provide nowadays, however I’ve no hesitancy recommending the Chanel Les Beiges Wholesome Glow Basis Hydration and Longwear.
