I should have paid more attention to the “sheer” aspect to this product name because it is very very sheer as in no coverage imo. I used it to mattify and set the Chanel Perfection Lumiere foundation. It looked nice when first applied, however even by afternoon I was shiny and the makeup was patchy after 4 hours sitting in an office. I also tried another day to take it to work with me for touch ups, and it did mattify but offered no coverage at all, which I needed since the foundation and powder didn’t look great mid day. So if it didn’t work well to set foundation for more than a few hours, and is too sheer to bring along for touch ups I really have no use for it unfortunately. I would consider this a very sheer setting powder of sub par lasting quality. So disappointing because I wanted to love it, even for the beautiful case and heavenly scent. Sadly this is going back.

Though I was skeptical and bought this on a whim when I ran out of my other pressed powder, I have to admit that on my skin, this is awesome - especially in the summer when I am using a ton of greasy sunscreen on my face.I have dry skin, and this warms up my complexion, and reduces the greasy sunscreen look while still keeping my complexion glowy - it literally is like using some kind of photo filter in real life!Note that my natural skin tone is about nc35, and in summer more of an nc42. I have this in shade 30 and I still find that, despite my natural tan, it makes my face more bronzed/orange looking - the colour definitely shows up on my face, and I have to take it down my neck/chest to keep things matched up. In winter I may switch to shade 25.

I usually use beige rose 22 in chanel but i gotten color matched with n.10 in les beiges because it has more of a pink undertone. the n.20 was a bit yellow on me. I initially really loved the le teint powder foundation in chanel but that one was getting too heavy/dry for my liking. I needed something light. This powder is light coverage but will add a little color to your skin. For me, i use my shape tape concealer on areas i need and i put this powder over to set it with this. It has a great radiance to it and if you are looking for a silky finishing powder on the natural side, this would be your choice. The only complaint i have would be how i feel like it might be congesting my skin after using it for a couple weeks. Also it doesnt control oil.Pros-NondryingNatural radianceGreat for Touchup Doesnt feel heavyCon-PriceSmell/fragrance might bother some peopleNo coverage Can clog poresNot good for oily skinEdit (after 1.5month usage) - I wont be repurchasing because im super oily and i want to look for a more mattefying powder. *i returned it and got myself the perfection lumiere velvet and loveeee that so much. No need to powder. Anyways watch out if you are oily! This is not for us greaseballs out there!

This is a nice medium coverage foundation with good staying power, and a nice clea scent, I just wish it wasn't $60.

This is not a powder foundation. It's a sheer light creamy powder with a demi matte that can be used as a setting powder/touch up powder/bronzer, contour etc. There's nothing quite like this on the market.I use this as a touch up powder. I use Lancôme dual finish powder in Ecru 230 as my setting powder but I find it too heavy to be used as a touch up powder. That's why I like Chanel les beiges powder. It mattifies, deposits a little colour and keeps my foundation looking fresh. Most important, it doesn't look chalky or settle into my lines. I'm in my late 20's now and am really starting to see the signs of ageing. I find I can no longer use just any type of powder. Sorry, but Rimmel stay matte powder just doesn't cut it anymore for me, it's just way too dry and chalky for my ageing skin. I use the shade 30 which is more of a light golden tan shade. It's a fraction too dark but it still looks natural. It looks really dark in the pan but it's actually quite light. Number 20 is too light, made me look kinda chalky and dry. I can always mix 20 and 30 together, but often I'm pressed for time and not really convenient to carry 2 powders with me. They do sell 25 but it's really PINK, not really suitable for my MAC NC20-30 skin tone. This powder is really expensive $88AUD for 12g. Which is why i only use it as a touch up powder. For setting I prefer to use something more affordable (Lancôme dual finish is $55AUD for 19g). If you're after a powder for dry skin that won't look dry or cakey, this is worth having a look.One more thing too mention, this powder seals/hardens up really fast if you aren't careful. You need to keep your brushes/sponge /fingers really clean when using this. Pretty much all the testers have sealed up because of this. Update: Number 30 turns out to be still too dark. It oxidises a lot, especially when the weather is warmer or you've been busy running errands etc. Looks like I'm going to have to stick to number 20.Update 2: Number 20 is still too light and 30 too dark. I'm one of many who have this problem, stuck in between 20 and 30. I don't want waste this so I will mix both in the future. Now, I'm using Dior nude air powder in number 30 which is perfect shade for me.

I wasn't interested in this product when it first hit the shelves despite thinking that it looked very appealing. I held off buying for a very long time but recently caved and purchased it with a few other Chanel items (my bank balance is crying). I think the marketing hype on this product is ridiculous and I feel slightly confused about what this powder actually is or should be....I have the lightest shade but feel that perhaps to use it as Chanel intended I should have gone up a shade so it showed more colour? In the end I feel that you can use this as a setting powder, a light bronzer or whatever you prefer and there really is no general rule about it. I've rated this a 5 because as well as being ridiculously beautiful it is also practical. I finish my makeup with this every day and it gives me a very slight glow whilst taking any slickness off my skin. I am happy that it has SPF (although I don't rely on it), I like the fragrance because it makes me feel pampered (although I know that many won't). Obviously i look nothing like the beautiful Gisele when I have finished with this powder but if I wanted to add slight bronzing to my contours then I could go up a shade or two which perhaps I may do in the future.I love this powder because it is a covetable luxury item that does a nice job of finishing my makeup and the powder is silky and glides on well. For some, powder is powder but for me pulling this compact out when I'm bleary eyed in the morning is a nice thing to experience. This product would be good to carry with you because the brush it comes with is actually quite useable and the compact is sturdy and has a very nice sized mirror. It isn't a miracle product, it's a slightly glowy setting powder with a teeny bronze cast but the powder is so sheer that barely comes across when you apply it, but it is a beautiful item for people who enjoy packaging and guiltily but knowingly buy into the marketing fairytale. I'm very pleased with this and it brings me joy, that is all I ask for.

Chanel - Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen in № 30. Day 1: love itDay 2: MehDay 3: OMG pancake face and hating it.Day 4: better than meh but worse than love. I think this comes down to me not knowing how to exactly use this as I thought it was more of a mattifying powder to put over my foundation as the woman at the Chanel a counter at Nordstrom did for me, which looked really incredible over my liquid foundation. She didn't explain what the uses for it were at all nor how to apply it other than I don't need to use much, now that I think of it. Upon applying it the following day myself, it looked rather patchy and weird especially along my jawbone and basically looked like my foundation had oxidized (which wasn't the case). Strange. Also, I feel that it may be way to dark for what I initially thought it was meant to be used for - or so I thought. But upon reading other reviews here, people seem to be saying it's more of a very light bronzer/glow powder rather than a regular pressed powder to use throughout the day. I'm thinking of exchanging for a shade lighter but unsure. Beautiful packaging, however! Will experiment more with it.

I got this in the chanel 2016 travel palette in shade #20 & it is soooo awesome! It is so sheer u think there is nothing there but it only takes a small amount on your nose/chin & it is like you are lit from within yet it controls oil I put it on at 10:30AM & I was blotting st 9PM nothing short of a miracle normally by 9PM it'd be impossible to salvage my MU & I'd be scrubbing it off but I'll wait til I got to bed to take off my MU which makes me happii. Im NC20 in MAC (Blot powder medium, Sephora Linen powder fdtn/Sephora perfect Mist airbrush fdtn Medium), im so going to rebuy this when I run out of it in the palette. I don't know how much it costs but it will be MINE!! Funny how it can illuminate yet Mattify! & for such a long time--a miracle!! And it's in a palette handy w other MU very convenient & cool. #winning

I have this in 30 and 40. I love this powder as it is a very sheer but gives me a glow that I have found cannot be duplicated anywhere. Believe me I have looked for a smaller price tag with the same effect. Nada! This is not a thick foundation type powder so people should not expect it to cover up much. It is a "Healthy Glow Sheer Powder" as it is labeled to be. I use it over my BB creams and Tinted moisturizers after I spot conceal and set with loose powder in my problematic oily T-one. It is subtle and gorgeous. I cannot live without this in the Summer especially. I hope they carry this for a long time. I know Chanel is uber expensive but you definitely get what you pay for with this one. That is if what you are wanting to do is look subtle yet posh Summertime polished.
