I instagrammed (@imzlondon- if you dont already know, I'm on the beat with this social media medium) a picture of this purchase with the hashtag 'shame'. Shame because Im on a spending diet of sorts and shame because I didn't really need this powder but I wanted it so I got it- shame.
Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder no. 40 £38 Link
This imparts a beautiful suede like finish to the skin when applied. Its not your usual glow touted about by beauty buffs but it provides something much better in my opinion. I think this wears incredibly well throughout the day/night and tends to look better the longer you have it on. Genius- I like a bit of that.
I bought this online and when I first peeped into the pan I was taken aback at how dark it was and I was worried Id made a HUGE shade matching faux pas, but this is so sheer I needn't have worried at all. I use this across my cheeks on top of my chantecaille future skin foundation and it blends in seamlessly.
I've been skipping the blush and going all out with this and so far I am impressed.
Is it a necessary purchase? No, it is not immediately noticeable but I do feel it does something for my complexion in an oh so subtle way. I guess I could also be trying to justify the obscene price for something that barely shows up? Perhaps, but in the interest of clarity and my commitment to the lifestyle of a bon viveur, it isn't all about necessities in this instance.
Overall I am very pleased with this product and the fact that I use it every single day must be testament to how awesome it is.
