Chanel Les Beiges

Is $60 for a face powder reeeeally worth it? In this case, yes. I have a new love. The Chanel Les Beiges powder is stunning. Truly. I was a little skeptical at first, I mean $57.50 for a sheer powder
is a little spendy, but I have had good experiences with Chanel's other face powders (Double Perfection Lumiere is my favorite).

This powder is sheer and light and blends beautifully with SPF 15, which I appreciate and contains 12 grams of product. Because it is sheer it provides minimal coverage, so this won't cover acne on its own but it will just help even out everything and blur the look of pores and fine lines. This doesn't sit on the skin, it becomes one. Dramatic much? Maybe. This isn't shimmery or necessarily glowy but it just makes you look alive and healthy. I have been using this to set my makeup and I love it. I have the color N 20, which is my perfect color right now, I could get away with an N 30 but it is a tad too dark (for reference I am about a MAC nw 25). Because of how blend-able and smooth this is this would work very well as a bronzer in a couple shades darker than your skin tone. While the product itself is amazing,  I do love the packaging and cannot get enough of the smell. It smells like a lot of their other products, a light apricot. This just feels so luxurious. Absolutely worth the splurge!
