Hello My Lovelies,
Hope your all well! I handed in my Marketing assignment yesterday and I feel a weight has totally been lifted, i can sit back and relax over the weekend now :)
I was very kindly invited to a lauch of one of Chanel's new products 'Les Beiges'. I was given a brief on the new product, how it works, all the available shades and what it could be used for in your makeup routine. I've actually never tried a Chanel face powder before so it was intersting to see how it worked with my skin. As soon as it was applied to my skin in transformed my complexion, it had a glow to it and looked stunning.
Chanel's Makeup Artist Izzy very kindly did a Classic Chanel makeover on me and the look turned out absolutely beautiful. She decided upon a Classic slight 60's Smokey eye with a bold Red lip. The bold red lip was a little outside my comfort zone as some bright colours scare me haha but the shade she picked out for me suited my skin tone and i'd have to say looked pretty darn good ;) haha. Izzy is so talented and was so lovely to talk to, we chatted about loads of things and of course spoke about Coco Chanel. I will be doing another post showing you my finished look with a list of all the products used.
Chanel have just launched this little beauty to their coveted collection. It launched yesterday - 15th March 2013 - in the UK and i was luckily enough to pick one up Thursday night and bring you a review :)
As you can already tell, there is something a little different about this collection...it has white packaging! I think the white is very different and looks incredibly sleek and stunning. I do absolutely adore the classic black but the white has something about it. Izzy told me that the white was in fact how Chanel used to have their packaging 'back in the day' when the makeup first launched, how exciting! I think something which has also lead them to use the white packaging again is the fact that the line is called 'Les Beiges' so the white represents something quite close to the name.
This little beauty is very versitle and can be used in a few different ways. It can be applied as a foundation, a setting powder or as a brozer depending on what shades you go for. I tried out the powder over the 'Chanel Lift Lumiere Foundation' and my complexion looked absolutely flawless, it even managed to cover up some pesky little breakouts. After applying it to your skin, if you wait around 5 minutes you'll notice the powder transform and start literally glowing on your skin, it was so magical to watch.
The texture is silky soft and very light, when Izzy applied it to my face i couldn't actually tell i was wearing anything ontop of the foundation on my skin. It was beautiful to wear throughout the night, i can already tell that it's a type of poweder that won't go 'cakey' on the skin which is something you want in a powder.
I opted to purchase shade #30 as can use it as a setting powder but i can also layer it up to add some warmth and contour to my face also. I will be going back to get more shades though as i am so pleased with the overall product so far. When the product was designed, it was created to add warmth to your complexion so the shades do 'oxidise' a go slight darker once applied to your skin, hence the name 'Healthy Glow' Sheer Powder :)
I am extremely pleased with this powder and how it makes my skin looks, their is also a slight rose scent to it which makes me love it even more. Chanel's perfume designer also scents the makeup line and most of the blushers are baked using rose water, which was an intersting fact i learnt yesterday.
I hope you enjoyed this post :) if you have any questions or requests please do not hesitate to contact me via my social media platforms or by leaving me a comment below, i love hearing from you all and i read every single comment :)
Lots Of Love
