After finding my perfect lipstick at the Chanel counter (click here to read that post) I thought I would add a couple more additions to my lip collection along with the extremley Insta-worthy Chanel Healthy Glow Luminous Multi-colour Powder.
Les Beiges – Healthy Glow Luminous Multi-colour Powder – Limited Edition
There’s no doubt about it, this is one of the prettiest, most chic looking products ever to pull out of your handbag for a table-top touch up, this stunning, sleek palette can be seen on many Instagram posts but how well does it stand up to my ever increasing powders, let’s take a look.
The beautiful, chic, nude and black palette is just stunning, complete with it’s very own velvet pouch. Open it up to find a very decent sized mirror and round brush, perfect for on the go top ups.
Underneath is the eye-catching, multi-colour product, stripes of warm golden tones, perfect to enhance any skin tone. I got it in the shade medium.
What Chanel says: ” The exclusive creation HEALTHY GLOW LUMINOUS MULTI-COLOUR enhances the natural radiance of the complexion with a veil of fresh, sunny colour in a single step.
Its cream-to-powder texture melts onto the skin while remaining weightless, for a makeup result as lightweight as it is luminous.
Intuitive and multipurpose, HEALTHY GLOW LUMINOUS MULTI-COLOUR offers endless possibilities, from the subtlest natural look to the most sophisticated. Never has a radiant healthy glow been so spontaneous.
The iconic LES BEIGES case contains a large mirror and a half-moon brush applicator.
Three powder harmonies are available to adapt to all skin tones.
My thoughts: This is a lovely textured powder with a slight luminosity, without any glitter. I think it does exactly what it “says on the tin” and creates a healthy glow. Even though it has the different shades running through it, it is a one shade product. It would be perfect for someone who didn’t wear much makeup and didn’t want to be too bronzed and contoured, just wanted to add a touch of warmth and look healthier.
Ths product is Limited additon and whilst it is a nice a formulation and super pretty, it doesn’t blow me away for the price.
Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour
As I wrote in my “I have finally found my perfect lipstick” post, I like a hydrating, natural lip colour. My perfect everyday shade is 434 Mademoiselle and I was so happy with both the colour and texture of this lip colour that I decided to try a couple more shades from the range.
What Chanel says: ” ROUGE COCO, the iconic CHANEL lipstick, reinvented. A new formula for more sensoriality and hydration all day long. A new range of shades inspired by the close friends of Mademoiselle Chanel, those who simply called her Coco. The ROUGE COCO clique is composed of 24 shades: Arthur, Adrienne, Roussy, Dimitri and more.
• The combination of three vegetable waxes−mimosa, jojoba and sunflower−hydrates, nourishes the lips and ensures immediate and lasting comfort.
• A silicone wax delivers a new sensory experience. Softer and more melt-away, gliding on more easily for an immediate sensation of fusion with the lips.
• A new polymer film and silicone microbeads encourage lasting hold and boosted shine.
My thoughts: Both these shades would fit nicely into my bridal kit as they are soft in shade and hydrating in texture. I wanted to check the shades on my own lips and see how they compare to others in my kit.
428 Legende – This looked similar to mademoiselle online however when swatched its quite a bit more pink. When I swatched on my hand I wasn’t too sure about the colour for me personally but on my lips it is actually quite pretty, it looks like an iridescent yet soft pink which has a bit of brightness yet is very wearable, due to their hydrating and slightly sheer texture even though it is slightly lighter than my natural lip colour I don’t get that dreaded line inside my lips.
402 Adrienne – Again because of the sheer, hydrating texture this is quite a forgiving light nude on me, usually I don’t really like or suit lipsticks lighter than my natural lip color amd this is probably the lightest I would personally go, however the shade and texture are beautiful, I would probably team this up with a slightly darker lip liner for a bit of definition.
I just love this texture of lipstick it’s shiny and gloss like, whilst being hydrating and without any stickiness, I’m not a huge lipstick fan on myself and get a lot of clients that are the same so I would highly recommend giving them a try if you like a similar finish.
Hope you have found this post interesting. Which is your favourite Chanel product?
