Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
For spring and summer 2018, Chanel is once again expanding its beloved Les Beiges Collection to include some more wearable, everyday pieces. Introducing a brand new tinted moisturizer and illuminating powder, the Les Beiges 2018 Collection offers a glowy, dewy complexion and a chic, neutral color palette.

Chanel Les Beiges Sheer Healthy Glow Tinted Moisturizer: Review and Swatches

Chanel Les Beiges 2018 Collection | Les Beiges Sheer Healthy Glow Tinted Moisturizer ($60 CAD for 30ml):
Housed in a compact squeezable bottle equipped with a convenient spout dispenser, the Les Beiges Sheer Healthy Glow Tinted Moisturizer is available in six shades. With a lightweight, liquid formulation, the tinted moisturizer provides a sheer, dewy coverage. Formulated with titanium oxide and octinoxate (ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate), the product offers an SPF of 30 (although the SPF cannot be claimed within Canada due to regulation restrictions). As its name suggests, the Sheer Healthy Glow Tinted Moisturizer is indeed very sheer and glowy. The coverage builds to light-medium at best and the finish has a noticeable sheen.

When it comes to complexion products, I all about a matte and high-coverage formulation as I have oily, blemished skin. Therefore, this product doesn't appeal me. The coverage is simply too light and the finish too dewy. However, for those with dry to normal skin looking for something light and fresh for the summertime, this is a good option. The application is smooth and non-streaky while the finish does need to be set with a good powder to prevent transferring and fading. In terms of wear, this one faded pretty quickly on me and there was some creasing around the nose. It's not even summer yet so I can't actually imagine how it would perform with increased sebum and sweat production. With that said, though, the hydrating, radiant finish may be just what dry to normal skin needs. Therefore, definitely check this out in stores and get a sample before buying.

I have here the shade "Medium Light", which was initially a good fit for me (I'm around NC15 to NC20). However, there was some oxidation but the color turned more pinky-peach than orange, which is still undesirable. Therefore, definitely allow the product to settle for a good five to ten minutes on the skin before choosing your shade.

Chanel Les Beiges 2018 Collection | Les Beiges Healthy Glow Natural Eyeshadow Palette in "Deep" ($70 CAD for 4.5g):
Available in two new shade combinations ("Light" and "Dark"), the Les Beiges Healthy Glow Natural Eyeshadow Palette is a five-shade neutral palette designed to emphasize the eyes with natural, flattering colors. Offering a good mix of mattes, satins, and sparkles, the "Deep" palette contains a matte beige brown, a rusty gold sparkle, a deep satin brown, a matte cool-tone brown, and a warm bronze gold sparkle.

From experience, Chanel palettes can be super hit or miss but as you can see in the swatches below, the Les Beiges Healthy Glow Natural Eyeshadow Palette in "Deep" is phenomenal! All the shades, the mattes included, are silky and pigmented. I found the matte beige brown just a tad powdery and fallout-prone but the application is still even and smooth. If you are a fan neutral shadows, this is definitely a good one to pick up.
Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Multi-Color Powder in "Medium": Review and Swatches
Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Multi-Color Powder in "Medium"
Chanel Les Beiges 2018 Collection | Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Multi-Color Powder in "Medium" ($75 CAD for 11g | Limited Edition):
Available in three shades, the Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminus Multi-Color Powder is a silky, lightweight face powder infused with shea and beeswax. I have here the "Medium" palette, which consists of several shades of beige, a light warm peach, and a light bronze. I thought that the palette was more of a bronzer and although pigmented, the powder is quite light in color. The formulation is silky smooth and very buildable. There are no visible shimmers but the five shades combine to form a light beige-tan infused with a subtle sheen. If you go with a darker shade, you can easily use it as a subtle bronzer. However, the two lighter shades probably work best as an all over illuminating powder. Included with the compact is a specially-designed mini face brush that does a very good job at picking up all the colors at once.

Chanel Les Beiges 2018 Collection | Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Color Stick in "N°25" ($53 CAD for 8g):
A new shade of the cream cheek color, the Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Color Stick in "N°25" is a fresh coral red sprinkled with very subtle gold sparkles. Housed in a twist-up, retractable stick, the blush is lightweight and creamy. This shade swatches a bit patchy on the back of my hand but it blends nicely on the cheeks for a natural flush. The color is buildable but the finish is prone to smudging so it needs to be set with a translucent powder, which unfortunately dulls the color a bit. You can conversely use it over powder but as is with any cream products, application over powder tends to be patchy and challenging.

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Lip Balm in "Light"
Chanel Les Beiges 2018 Collection | Les Beiges Healthy Glow Lip Balm in "Light" ($43 CAD for 3g):
Packaged similarly (but a mini version) as the Healthy Glow Sheer Color Stick, the new Les Beiges Healthy Glow Lip Balm is a lightweight tinted balm made with jojoba oil, moringa oil, vitamin E, and vitamin C. I have here "Light" (one of the three shades available), which appears as a bright coral in the tube but wears like a sheer warm pink. The formulation is very slick and moisturizing but it does catch on dry patches so make sure to exfoliate thoroughly before application. Because the color is so light and slick, it does wear off super quickly so touch-ups are needed to ensure hydration.
