Chanel Les Beiges

It's been a MINUTE since I've done a proper product review and I wanted to go back to the basics a bit, old school if you will.

The first time I tried Chanel's Les Beiges foundation was for my cousin's wedding, some two years ago. The bridal party all went to get our makeup done at the mall (felt kinda bougie, highly recommend) and that was the foundation the girl used on me. I fell IN LOVE & bought myself some that same day.

That particular one was called 'all in one' & it was GLORIOUS. It literally lasted me until a few weeks ago. Maybe that's because I didn't wear it every day, but still. It lasts a LONG time.

But as it turns out, somewhere in the past two years, they discontinued the all in one, possibly because it was so similar to the regular les beiges, AKA the one featured in this post....

The range comes in fourteen shades, already a boost above the many less-than-inclusive foundations. With a creamy formula that is easy to apply with your fingertips (& blend with a beauty blender!) the application is smooth & dang near flawless. Coverage is medium but buildable. I normally only go in with two or three pumps & it's enough for my comfort.

Let's talk about wear-- I always set my foundation with a powder, but even with that sometimes certain foundations just don't hold. This is not one of them, however. At the end of the day I can still tell it's on, but it doesn't feel heavy, if that makes sense. You know it's there, but you don't know. It's one of those really wearable products & I love that.

I've tried SO MANY foundations throughout my makeup wearing days-- pretty much a decade now-- and I can honestly say that this is my #1 pick. I'm such a drugstore advocate and most times those products really work just as well as high end, but when it comes to foundation, if you want something that truly lasts, feels light but wearable, and good coverage, you've gotta splurge a bit.

My budget kind of hates it, but it's worth it!
