The other day an old copy of Fashion magazine somehow ended up on my desk so I decided to flip through the pages even though I am usually not a fan of Canada's (supposednumber one fashion magazine. Forgetting the fact that I'm not a fan, I always feel like half the fun of magazines is looking at all the ads which are usually just as interesting as the articles and editorials. As I was flipping the pages one of the ads caught my attention and I actually stopped and wrote the name of the product on a postit and stuck it in my purse. The flip-stopping product was Chanel's (newish) Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder. I ended up googling it on my lunch break which led to the decision that I should take a trip to my closest Chanel counter to see it in person. Once I decide a product warrants a trip to the closest counter that usually means trouble. Off to the counter I went with a skip in my step (hello, it's Chanel after all) to  swatch the powder. Lets just say I was pretty much sold at first sight but a friendly sales associate approached me and said he wanted to show me how to use it so I happily took a seat in the makeup chair and let him do his thing. After applying the powder he decided I needed some blush and lip gloss and I felt like a whole new woman. 

 I bought it in the colour B10 which is a perfect match for my skin tone. When they say "healthy glow" the truly mean it. The powder is finely milled and very sheer so it does not provide any coverage but it leaves the skin with the most beautiful glow that is so difficult to describe. It's not shimmery or glittery in the slightest but it gives the skin a gorgeous sheen. It is best used with a dense kabuki brush and should be buffed into the skin in circular motions but I sometimes like to use the brush that came with the compact too. The bristles are surprisingly soft for a compact brush (but not for Chanel) and it makes applying on the go a breeze. What is your go to powder?

  1. We're the same shade! I have bought this too but (embarrassingly) haven't opened it yet-am in love with my soap and glory 'one heck of a blot' and my hourglass 'diffused light' ambient lighting powder combo

  3. Have you tried the Hourglass Ambient Lighting powders? Would you say they work the same, and if yes, which one is better? :)

  7. This looks like a promising product. I use Estee Lauder Double Matte Pressed Powder or MAC Blot powder. :)
