These, the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow multi-colour powders in No 01 and No 02, were just delivered to me late last night. I played around with them some before I went to bed and so far I am liking them a lot. Each currently retails for $65 USD and contains .39 oz of product. They are part of the Les Beiges Summer collection and are available on the Chanel.com website and I have seen them in store at Nordstrom as well. You can read more about the entire collection here: CHANEL LES BEIGES COLLECTION SUMMER 2014

The Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Colour in No 01 is a tricolored collection of soft peaches. The top color is a sparkle-y warm vanilla, the second color is a golden peach and the bottom color is a warm peach with a hint of pink. The formula is a little powdery but each strip of color housed in the compact is nicely pigmented and the compact itself is large enough each color can be used separately or altogether. Included inside each compact, is a flat fan shaped brush when used in a swirling motion, gives the best results especially when trying to achieve an all-over highlight, contour, or bronzed look. Just take care when exerting pressure with the enclosed brush, mine started to shed a little.

Even though a lot of you may think this compact is way too light for your skintone the No 01 compact is really versatile. Many can wear it as a highlight, contour, or even a blush. For those who are really pale like myself, the No 01 compact is perfect for warming up the entire face with a nice flush of color. Or, depending on the intensity, it can be used to soften up the features as well. So if you are unsure it will work for you, then I suggest a visit to your local Chanel counter or nearest department store that carries Chanel. That way you can check it out in person to see how truly amazing these powders perform. You might be surprised at how well the No 01 compact works for just about everybody.

Hi, thank you for the review:) would you say this gives you somewhat of a glow? Your swatch looks great, but would like to hear your thoughts on the type of finish you get. Thank you!


Absolutely, this will definitely give you a nice subtle glow. Try using the Sephora #45 mineral powder brush to apply a light dusting of the powder onto the face so it won't enhance the pores. If you want to amp up the glow then use the Marc Jacobs The Face I brush. It also cuts down on some of the powdery-ness of the compact.
