Chanel Les beige healthy glow foundation

I bought this on Friday (15th) and so far I love it. I have quite sensitive skin and it hasn't reacted (fingers crossed).. It leaves a really healthy finish, think vitalumiere aqua but slightly less dewy and a bit more long wearing. I'm in the shade B10 and is a perfect match for my skin (I use mac concealer in nc15)

Thanks for the pics Miss QQ. I'm still using my Chantecaille Future Skin. But you know how it is, always on the lookout for something new!
Next time I'm at a chantecaille counter I want to buy the foundation. I passed it when I was at Hong Kong a few years back.

I tried 010 for 2 days and tiny bumps appeared on my forehead and temples. I don't usually react to foundations. The texture was a bit too thick for my liking too and I find it harder to remove at the end of the day. I do get that 'healthy outdoor' complexion, but it's s pass for me.

Bummer. Sorry it didn't work out for you. Hope you love the Chante if you try it.
 
So, I had been craving this foundation since it launched a few weeks back and I'm not known for my patience, so I had to have it. :hehe: I tried it for the first time today and I'm impressed. The colour 010 is really light, which is a new for me when it comes to Chanel foundations. Every foundation by Chanel has been too dark but this one really fits a pale girl like me (I usually wear Revlon Ivory or MAC NW/NC10). I used my Beautyblender and it went on smooth and I have to say I'm really shocked by how good the coverage is! I never would have expected such good coverage from a foundation that is part of the Les Beiges line that claims to offer natural and light coverage. I had to use some concealer but still, I'm impressed. It is not as longwearing as I want it to be but I guess you can't have everything. It started to settle into my fine lines around my nose and mouth after about 4 hours of wear. I only had to blot my nose once (I have dry skin, though, so I don't know how this foundation works for oily skin) and after nearly 9 hours it still looks quite good. I do think, contrary to some reviews, that it does give you a glowy skin when you apply it. Not as glowy as some other foundations which have the adjective in their name but I won't complain. I set my foundation with powder anyways.
All in all I'm truly liking this foundation so far. :wow:

I've heard so many bad reviews about it from women who have normal/dry skin. It enhances dryness and has dull finish.

I have a suspicion this might be the cause of my break-out. I normally do not get pimples, but I've gotten two since using this.

Alcohol would do that.

Talc is also pretty high up in the ingredients, and that could emphasize dryness.

I wore it for the first time yesterday. It doesn't cover all that well so I needed to apply more than I usually do. However, the result was great. My skin looked soft and with discolorations slightly blurred instead of masked. I am also happy that Chanel finally have made a foundation that's (almost) light enough for my pale face. The pump is good too - it gives only a little product at the time and is easy to control.

They recommend using it with fingertips, but I had the best result with a fondation brush (Bobbi Brown, full coverage).

Thank you for your comments. I'm excited to try. I have to get my hands on a sample.

I saw how it looks close up and it did not look good. This is for someone who has normal/dry skin. But at the same time someone else who is combo /oily is loving it

I have worn it four to five days a week the last three weeks, and I'm increasingly happy with it. As I wrote three weeks go, it doesn't mask imperfections, they are blurred. The foundation gives a soft, natural loking glow to the face, but it's bound to disappoint anybody WHO (crazy machine - apparent set to recognize certain words) prefers a very shiny face.

For what it's worth - my skin is normal, perhaps slightly on the dry side, thin and with very fine pores which makes most foundations look too heavy and muddy on me. I might add that I am bit of a foundation wizard; my skin is so pale that when I'm lucky enough to find a color that suits me, I buy the foundation, and you can be sure, I'll make it work! :)

I'm looking forward to trying this, but it's so weird that it's listed as limited edition. I'm still upset that they discontinued my shade in perfection lumiere. Why is Chanel doing this to me?
