Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation, $82 (30ml)
WHAT Take the guesswork out of creating the flawless, no-makeup makeup look with this makeup foundation.
In a pump bottle, this lightly creamy liquid foundation helps to protect the skin with kalanchoe extract by boosting hydration and antioxidant levels. It also comes with SPF 25 / PA++ to help shield the skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. (Remember to wear a sunscreen under any makeup foundation for optimum sun protection).
Simone Wu, beauty editor: “The texture is slightly thick and creamy but upon application, spreads out effortlessly to conceal minor skin flaws and to create a velvety veil against my oily-combination skin. I love that my skin feels smooth and looks matte after applying this, and it almost looked like there was an Instagram filter over my face.”
Kayce Teo, features writer: “I like that it’s lightweight and sheer yet provides good coverage. And it evens out skintone and gives a no-makeup look.”
Chelza Pok, art director: “I have always used compact foundations so I was pleasantly surprised that this leaves a powdery finish – not sticky at all. It has an incredibly light texture and can still give me enough coverage.”
The Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation is available in six shades at all Chanel beauty boutiques and counters.
