Chanel Nail Summer Beauty

Chanel Nail Summer Beauty

I am a pale-faced Celtic person. With freckles. Bronzers don’t usually sit so well on me, with the reason being they always end up looking too orange, no matter how low down the shade scale they claim to be.
Nevertheless, I was keen to test out the new Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Colour from Chanel, which is a key piece in the upcoming Summer collection ?itself a glorious celebration of all things bronze and beautiful.

I tried the Mariniere No2 shade and to my utmost surprise, it served to merely add a soft glow rather than a full-on bronze tint. The silky texture is sublime, as we have come to expect from the Les Beige range.

The cream to powder cheek stick are another excellent addition to the line – gorgeously peachy and perfectly primed to give skin a summery lift.

And as ever, Chanel nail the mani shades of the season – we predict wait lists for Lovely Beige!

The range is on counters from June 19th – consider this your advance warning to ring-fence your funds for your summer beauty buys.
