Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation in Shade 91 and 121

Finally, the darker colours for the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation are available on the Chanel.com website.

So What is the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation?

So what is this new foundation from the Chanel cosmetic gods? From the website:

“A smooth, glide-on formula for a fresh, radiant complexion. Defends skin against environmental aggressors and provides broad-spectrum sun protection. In 14 versatile, natural-looking shades.” Swatches below.

Should you get it?

I don’t know what defending my skin against environmental aggressors has to do with it, but, in a nutshell – YES! Why? It’s weightless.  The Chanel Les Beiges foundation completely disappears into my skin. I cannot feel it on my face at all and my skin can breathe.  It doesn’t oxidize and the glow is subtle.  It’s a light-to-medium foundation which is my preference, especially for day time wear.  So while it may not cover everything, it doesn’t look like a mask, and it allows you skin to glow. I think the best description I’ve read is that it’s a mixture between a light foundation and a BB cream.  There’s no other way to explain it, my skin just looks better – it definitely falls into the my-skin-but-better category.

Can I also mention that the frosted  bottle comes with a pump.  Yes its’ more pricey than NARS foundations, but to me it just makes NARS seem so cheap for making us buy a separate pump.

In my opinion, the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow foundation it is better than the Perfection Lumiere foundation, which is one of my all-time favourite high-end foundations. I was quite upset when I found out Chanel was discontinuing the darker shades.  I was so excited to hear that they were introducing this foundation and with a “wide” shade selection.  Truly, I was excited to see that I have a colour match.  Yep ladies, I’m one of the lucky ones since Chanel only thought to make 2-3 shades dark enough for the deeper ladies.

Other thoughts about Chanel.

And that’s pretty much the reason why I also dislike it.  Why only two Chanel?  With Perfection Lumiere, I had a match at 94 and 114, but there was also 104 (which was way too red), 134 and 154.  Maybe the deepest shades did not sell very well.  But to consolidate to 2 (maybe 3) deep shades seems a bit sketchy to me.  Ok three, as I guess a Latina or very light skinned woman of colour could wear the 71 shade.  Going to keep my fingers crossed that 1-2 deeper shades are still to be released, or are already being sold in Africa or Europe or somewhere. Like they say, fix it Jesus.  It’s that good, and should be available to all.

The other thing I wasn’t too impressed about is how long it took for these shades to hit our shores.  I hate it when the rest of the world has something and we are just sitting here twiddling our thumbs.  I believe this came out in Europe first approximately 4 months ago.  I first read about it here.  Once it rolled on to our american lands, those of us with a deeper hue then had to wait a little bit longer for the darker foundations.

I bought both shades directly from the Chanel website, and will return the lighter bottle to get another Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation in shade 121.  Yep, I want a back-up ASAP.  If you can, get a sample, I hope you have a colour match.

Thanks for stopping by.  Did you take note of the gorgeous packaging from Chanel.  They always make it look so perfect.

  1. Isn’t it great when you find something that you love? I am not a big fan of liquid foundations. I recently rediscovered my Chanel counter and my saleslady gave me a powder compact of the Les Beiges healthy glow sheer color in #70 that worked really well on me.

    1. I used to prefer cream-to-powder foundations but lately I’m all about the liquid. It is pretty cool when you find the one you love.
