Hi lovelies! I have good news and bad news. Good news: I'm going to review an amazing product! Bad news: you might be tempted to spend money haha. Oh yes, Chanel seduced me again to spend my money on a Les Beiges powder. This is now my third one and I absolutely love them! This post is all about the limited edition Les Beiges powder Marinière N°01. It is part of the special Les Beiges summer 2015 collection. Everybody was raving about the blush sticks but to be honest, only the powder really caught my eye. I bought this at Ici Paris XL. The price is €52 there but I had a coupon and paid only €40, so I'm not sorry haha!
Don't you just love Chanel packaging? It looks so luxurious that it instantly takes away the guilt of spending a lot of money on a powder. Again. Haha yes, I didn't really need this but I couldn't resist. The Les Beiges powders have a beige packaging that looks classy and sophisticated. Every powder comes with a nice velvet pouch to give it just that extra waw.
The Marinière N°01 is the light shade, there is also a darker N°02. I think this light shade suits my fair skin perfectly. If you have fair/light skin, this powder is a musthave if you love the Les Beiges powders. If you look closely, you will see that this powder has a bit of shimmer in it. This gives your skin the glow you expect from this powder. The normal Les Beiges powders don't have this shimmer so besides using this powder on its own, I will also be using it as a finishing touch over my beloved Les Beiges N°30.
The powder is finely milled and is easy to apply. I use a kabuki brush for my Les Beiges and that works great. Like every Chanel powder, this one also has that typical lovely Chanel scent. Ohh I love it! Once applied to skin the scent fades but its nice while putting it on. This powder gives you a healthy glow and evens out your skin tone. Don't expect it to cover up anything. It's a sheer powder that looks best when used as a finishing powder. If I have a lazy day or a rare good skin day, I only use this powder and nothing else. It just gives your skin a nice glow and evens out the skin tone. There isn't anything bad I can say about the Les Beiges powder. Absolutely my favourite product ever!
Hopefully you don't blame me if I tempted you to go get this beauty hihi!
Do you own this powder or another Les Beiges powder? Let me know your thoughts about it!
