Created for women in search of authenticity and freedom, it “oxygenates” the complexion by imitating every nuance of nude skin in the great outdoors. This colour palette sparked a desire for understated sophistication. A timeless and recognizable natural healthy glow. With LES BEIGES, Lucia Pica, CHANEL Global
For the first time, the microfluidic technology – already used in skincare and fragrance – puts its magic to work in a water-fresh tint with an exceptional nude skin effect. “LES BEIGES WATER-FRESH TINT is a new makeup product that enhances women’s natural beauty. It is worn like a subtle and undetectable second skin”, explains Lucia Pica.
The LES BEIGES line has made naturalness a style in itself and elegance a self-evident truth. In 2019, colour radiates on the lips with LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW LIP BALM to heighten a natural healthy glow, while eyes are accentuated with a colourful breeze using LES BEIGES NATURAL EYESHADOW PALETTE. As for the legendary LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW SHEER POWDER, it unveils a distinctive signature to make it even more desirable.
LES BEIGES WATER-FRESH TINT - the elegance of impeccable and effortless foundation
LES BEIGES WATER-FRESH TINT offers an original vision of foundation and delivers an expression of color as pure as it is imperceptible on the skin. With its nude-skin finish, LES BEIGES WATER-FRESH TINT lets the skin breathe and enhances the beauty of every woman. By featuring microfluidics in a foundation product for the first time, CHANEL Research invents a nude-skin makeup result with unprecedented freshness and a natural, luminous and sheer finish. The patented microfluidics process makes it possible to limit the number of ingredients and unite an aqueous water-soluble phase and an oil-soluble phase in a single formula without an emulsifier. As a result, a multitude of oil micro-droplets with a fine and evanescent coating, filled with pure pigments, are suspended in a transparent and jellified aqueous phase.
LES BEIGES WATER-FRESH TINT is applied with a small ergonomic brush, developed in parallel with the formula for perfect affinity. One press on the pump dispenses the product, whose two phases – aqueous and oily – remain separate. When applied with the brush, they blend together, making the micro-droplets burst.
LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW SHEER POWDER - the les beiges signature
It all began with LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW SHEER POWDER. Behind this now-cult powder was the desire to emancipate the complexion from the rhythm of the seasons and fashions and show off an outdoor effect all year long. A sensation of oxygen on the skin. Singular freshness. An obvious and essential healthy glow. This year, LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW SHEER POWDER indulges in new limited-edition packaging. A spontaneous signature, the exact replica of that of Gabrielle Chanel, which is also found embossed on the powder.
LES BEIGES NATURAL EYESHADOW PALETTE - the indispensable palette
Lucia Pica perfectly understands which colours heighten the natural beauty of nude skin. Fascinated by the obvious elegance of the LES BEIGES collection and the ease with which the shades express themselves on the skin, she dreamed up a new type of palette. Each of the nine natural eyeshadows bears the conspicuous signs of a healthy outdoor glow. Airy beige, light-reflecting rosy beige, raw cocoa, bare skin, moonlight, matte khaki, hot chocolate, mineral bronze and sienna… A Pantone colour chart inspired by the most vibrant surfaces of the earth, from sparkle-strewn rocks to clay courts by way of soft sands and fertile ground. Mistakes are impossible. Each of the nine colors is compatible with all skin tones, from the fairest to the darkest.
LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW LIP BALM INTENSE - lips kissed with an outdoor glow
The enveloping LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW LIP BALM Intense instantly embellishes the complexion by adding a touch of vibrant colour to the lips. Lucia Pica dares to create a brick red inspired by the beauty of clay courts. This surprising shade is designed to naturally match all skin tones. Its creamy, melt-away texture, composed of a vitamin E derivative and moringa butter, nourishes, protects and wraps lips in wonderful comfort. On lips, color appears luminous and sheer. LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW LIP BALM Intense can be applied on its own or combined with a CHANEL lipstick.
