Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation

I’m a big, big fan of Chanel foundations. When Les Beiges was launched I already had 2 different foundations from Chanel in my stash, so it took me a while to decide if I need another one in my life. Turns out I do (I knew I’d end up buying it). The promise of a healthy glow look is pretty much what all of us want on our skin. I’ve used it for a while now, so I feel very confident to share my thoughts about it.


As usual for Chanel it has got a bit of fragrance, but not that much as Perfection Lumiere (review here). It’s in a perfect balance for me.

The packaging is beautiful and very practical. Pump dispenser gives just the right amount of product to cover my whole face. One pump gives light to medium coverage, but it’s very much buildable, so if you need a better cover you can use more product and apply second layer.

The foundation gives just perfect finish, that I think would suit vast majority of people. It’s slightly glowy, but not too shiny. It covers medium problems, like small imperfections and discolourations, but you need a concealer for heavy duty jobs. It sits on the skin really well for a few hours. It’s not a long lasting foundation by nature, but if you set it with powder it lasts pretty well.

I kind of expected it to be one of those liquid foundations, but it actually is quite creamy, which makes it easy to apply with a brush as well as sponge. It feels very soft on the skin and gives truly healthy look.

The fact that Le Beiges foundation has an SPF 25 is a great bonus. Perfect for spring/summer in the city, but you’ll still need your factor underneath if you live in a very sunny country or you’re on holidays.


I really recommend this foundation is you’re looking for an ultimate, everyday foundation that can be great for work as well as just for going out and about. It is available in all Chanel counters and online. I do recommend to pop in to the counter and get the colour matched. It costs £36 in the UK.

Has anyone already tried it?

    Great review! I am also a fan of Chanel foundations and as you mention, I already own two in my stash and wasn’t sure if I need a third one. After reading your review, the answer is clear. I need to try Les Beiges. Thank you for such an honest post!

    Great review! Chanel are my all time favourite brand for foundation and I had high hopes for this new launch. I agree that it gives a lovely finish, just takes more work than the others in applying I think but the more you use it, the more you get to love it. Chanel still are in my top spot! Xx
