I’ve to confess to feeling a bit of magnificence fatigue. There are solely so many new make-up or skincare releases I can deal with, earlier than it begins to overwhelm. And earlier than they begin wanting the identical.
But, there may be at all times one assortment I sit up for yearly – Chanel Les Beiges make-up assortment.
The Chanel Les Beiges assortment is at all times like a breath of recent air, with its predictability and primary, impartial hues. It’s, in some ways, nearly boring in its predictability.
However it’s that predictability that I sit up for. Once we are bombarded with vibrant colors and imagery in every completely different make-up assortment, with polished, airbrushed and outlined, nearly cookie-cutter precision appears that accompany it; I really feel the necessity to floor myself.
The Chanel Les Beiges assortment, with its splash of impartial beige, and celebration of all that’s pure and primary and impartial, is simply that!
Chanel Les Beiges 2019 – The New Impartial
What attracts me most to the Les Beiges assortment is its simplicity. You don’t get 15 completely different new colors and merchandise. You get the fundamentals – a base, a wholesome glow powder, a easy eyeshadow palette, and a tinted lip color. In earlier years, you get a blush as properly. Easy, simple to make use of merchandise.
Every part for the lady who embraces her pure magnificence, and desires one thing gentle to reinforce her wholesome glow.
Excellent for the lady who’s struggling to flee from the make-up world of bigger than life false lashes, overdrawn lips, inch-thick basis and blinding shine on cheekbones. Few of us stay the stage life. Not all of us need to look that means.
Chanel Les Beiges is due to this fact, a breath of recent air.
Because of this, Chanel’s Les Beiges Water-Recent Tint was, and stays for me, essentially the most revolutionary make-up product launched this 12 months.

I’ve already reviewed the Water-Recent Tint in nice depth so is not going to repeat it right here. Suffice to say, if you’d like only one merchandise from this assortment, that’s doubtless it! 🙂 I take advantage of it fairly often myself.
However there are just a few different merchandise within the Les Beiges 2019 line that I really feel are noteworthy. Certainly one of it’s one thing I’d been eyeing the second I noticed the visuals for the gathering.
Chanel Les Beiges Les Indispensables Eyeshadow Palette – RM363 | US$70 (Restricted Version)
The minute I laid eyes on the visuals for the Les Indispensables eyeshadow palette, I wished it. It was irrational. I wanted one other impartial palette, like I wanted a 3rd nipple.
But, irrational is what we may be as people.
Discarding the same old Wholesome Glow Pure 5 color eyeshadow palette that normally accompanies the Chanel Les Beiges assortment (you’ll be able to see the earlier one right here), Chanel went as a substitute with their new 9-colour palettes.
The 9-colour eyeshadow palettes had been first launched as a part of the Spring assortment in 2018. They characteristic 9 pressed shadows of various textures – matte, satin and shimmer – and the standard has, up to now, been spectacular to me.
The Chanel Les Indispensables Eyeshadow Palette boasts 9 shades of impartial. How authentic LOL! 😀
They’re grouped into 3 distinct teams, so you’ll be able to fairly simply use it to do a easy, barely there eye make-up look, or pile it on for intense color.
There aren’t any swatches, for which I apologise. I couldn’t get it to swatch correctly, and felt I used to be doing it a disservice. You may try the swatches on-line from different websites.
Nevertheless, I’ll warning you that the colors do really feel onerous to the contact, and fingers don’t decide up the lighter shades as simply because the deeper ones. Nevertheless, they’re simply picked up and blended with a brush. I didn’t expertise an excessive amount of of an issue utilizing these, and I truly benefit from the comfort of getting these easy, usable colors, in a single compact palette.
The Chanel Les Indispensables eyeshadow palette jogs my memory of the Charlotte Tilbury On the spot eyeshadow palette on this regard. However the high quality is best than Charlotte Tilbury, and it’s way more transportable.
I completely take pleasure in having it, and it has been helpful for me, and for anybody who enjoys utilizing impartial eyeshadow colors. It’s, because the identify implies, indispensable as high quality impartial eyeshadow palette 🙂
Whether or not it’s one thing you’d take pleasure in nevertheless, will rely upon what number of impartial eyeshadow palettes you already personal, your funds and the way irrationally you want a 3rd nipple 😛
Chanel Unique Creation Wholesome Glow Sheer Powder – RM223 | US$58 (Restricted Version)
The Chanel Unique Creation Wholesome Glow Sheer Powder is one which I predict many will purchase, as a result of it’s 1) restricted version and a pair of) distinctive within the packaging.
In the event you have a look at the 2nd image above, you will notice that the duvet of the powder doesn’t boast the signature interlocking CC of Chanel, however a stylized signature as a substitute.
This similar signature is etched on the floor of the powder, and makes for a really stunning Instagram prop 😛
Nevertheless, I’ll inform you that the etching is fast to vanish. I brushed my brush over the floor of the powder just a few instances, and already the perimeters are blunted. Use it just a few extra instances, and it’ll ultimately fade.
If you’re shopping for it for this function, then save your pennies 😛
In the event you’d choose as a substitute to not should cope with the stress of preserving the etching, then purchase the common Wholesome Glow Sheer Powder (everlasting). The floor of that powder shouldn’t be etched, however you get the common CC emblem on the beige cowl. Nonetheless, higher than coping with the stress of preserving your make-up wanting pristine 😛 Use it or lose it! If I’m not mistaken, the everlasting model can be a contact cheaper.
The powder I’ve is in shade No. 20 and out there domestically in 2 shades – No. 10 and No. 20. Whereas I normally go for No. 10 in Chanel bases, for this it doesn’t matter that it’s a contact deeper.
On pores and skin, it’s so sheer, you’ll be able to barely inform. I take advantage of it as an throughout powder, and it doesn’t impart very a lot color to my pores and skin. It simply appears a tiny contact warmed, which is useful for when a base leaves me wanting too pale. It is extremely refined, the powder may be very positive, and it’s an all-round pretty product.
Chanel Les Beiges Lip Balm – Intense – RM138 | US$25
It seems that the Les Beiges Lip Balm is an addition to the present shade vary. It began out with Mild, Medium and Deep over the previous years, and is now labelled Intense.
Because the identify implies, it’s a deep, nearly berry shade. That is much less like a tinted lip balm, and extra like a balmy lipstick, as a result of the color is sort of robust.
I anticipate that these with deeper pores and skin tone, or extra pigmented lips might recognize this higher as a tinted lip balm.
The feel is beautiful and balmy, it retains lips moisturised and chap-free, and it provides a beautiful tint of color. I’ve completely loved utilizing the Les Beiges Wholesome Glow Lip Balm over time and that is no exception. I simply deal with the Intense shade as a lipstick as a substitute, because of the depth of color.
