It has been a while since I last used a CHANEL foundation–the vitalumiere aqua was a favourite of my mine. I guess you could say, nothing had blown my mind until now. Continue reading to learn more.
“LES BEIGES healthy glow gel touch foundation is an innovative gel foundation that reveals a complexion glowing with freshness and radiance. It’s an ultra-fine, fresh aqua-gel texture provides buildable coverage on either bare skin or over existing makeup for any touch-ups.” – CHANEL.
CHANEL Les Beiges Healthy Glow Gel Touch Foundation Nº 40 11g
This gel touch foundation is a water-based foundation, thanks to a its hyaluronic acid derivative, the formula provides hydration all day long. It is enriched with kalanchoe extract, which is an active botanical ingredient and SPF 25/PA+++ sunscreen that protects the skin against external aggressors.
This is perfect for my dry-dehydrated skin type beauties, but think this can also work with combination-oily skin types. It leaves a natural dewy finish and almost a next to skin finish. This is an ultra-light consistency that has a light to medium coverage that is buildable and perfect for the fresh no makeup-makeup look. If you are looking for a full coverage finish, this is not the foundation for you. It comes with a sponge cushion, but I prefer to use a stippling brush, as it gives just about the same coverage and finish without any streaks or patches.
There are currently 6 shades available. I chose No.40 as this was a shade closer to my neck shade. I could do with No.50, which matches my face more, but I found it to look dark considering the rest of my complexion is mixed. It retails for AUD$91 and sold at your nearest Chanel counter or boutique.
Overall, I found this foundation to be light and perfect for spring and summer. I often find myself gravitating to lighter foundation formulas and think this has been wonderful on my skin. I enjoy the dewy finish and find it lasts on my face a good 6 hours, before things start to get messy. And by messy, I mean, I just want my makeup off my face!
