Chanel Les Bieges Healthy Glow Foundation
We have a mixed opinion here at Pixiwoo on the latest foundation launch from Chanel.
The new liquid foundation arrives nationwide from the 15th January 2016. It's a light to medium coverage which reflects a very natural radiance.
It's not a shimmery glow but more of a healthy satin finish.
Sam has a dry skin so was keen to try this foundation out. When a product is described as glowing we tend to assume it will be a very moisturising texture. This foundation actually doesn't feel hydrating and is quickly absorbed. If your skin is dry you may find that this doesn't provide your skin with enough moisture. It does however even the skin and provide a very natural glow.
However if your skin is combination to oily then it's a winner. A lot of brands assume that if you have an oily skin then you only ever want a matte finish to your skin...wrong. An oily skin can totally wear a radiant foundation, it just needs to have a texture which won't feel greasy on the skin. This foundation does this perfectly. It absorbs to a matte feel to touch but looks fresh and glowing on the skin. It doesn't feel uncomfortable and lasts really well with no pooling in the T-zone.
Sam used Les Bieges in her recent tutorial here...
Available in nine shades in the typical Chanel shades.
We have four of the shades swatched for you...
Does also contain SPF25 but doesn't flash back. Coming into wedding season this would be a great bridal foundation on a combination to oily skin.
The scent in this foundation is amazing, we think it smells like freshly washed hair!
Available from 16th January for £36.00
