Do you remember that in my previous post I told you I was going to write about a “Star” next? Here you have it! The CHANEL Le Blanc de Chanel Sheer Illuminating Base, the product that will give your skin the glow of a star!
CHANEL Le Blanc de Chanel Sheer Illuminating Base is an ingenious multi-tasking, oil-free fluid meant to prime your skin preparing it for a flawless makeup application. The result you will immediately see will be a subtle contour in the usual contouring areas of the face and a subtle radiance ( NO glitter there though! ), which will make your face look fresh and awake.
On the Chanel website they say that “Using Chanel’s latest technological innovations, the legendary Le Blanc De Chanel is more than a complexion enhancer. The divine texture glides on wonderfully to conceal all imperfections and even out the complexion. Imperfections are instantly diminished, giving you the instant glow.” Can you sense that glow in the picture below? The Le Blanc transfers the same on your face! It really evens out skin tone, and prepares it for the next step in your makeup routine.
I’ve been using it for about two weeks, and I’m pleased with the result.
Since I used it mainly as a primer, I wish it did more with the red tone in my skin. I like primers that appear more pale and take some of the redness out of my face. But to achieve that I am forced to use another product, which is an extra step I am not really keen on.
But it really did a good job at toning down the discoloration and really kept my foundation in place. It also prevented my foundation from settling into areas of my face that are a little drier. That is why I started to mix it with my foundation for an instant boost of radiance, and to make my foundation last longer without touching ups throughout the day.
You may also use it as a regular highlighter and apply it in the specific areas you need some “glow”!
It comes packaged in a heavy, matte glass, black and white bottle provided with a wide mouth and a screw-on lid. Very luxurious and very Chanel-like! I also comes with a little white spatula to help you take the product out of its container. It is recommended to shake the product well before application!
The fragrance is the one from Chanel‘s skincare products, if you are familiar with those. It is a powdery-rose scent that personally doesn’t bother me anymore but it might be an issue for anyone who prefers unscented products or anyone allergic to scents. So be careful!
Also be careful with how much product you apply on your face because it is easy to overdone it and you will be left with a white cast on your face! I need very little product to achieve the effect I want!
And I have the feeling that the 30 ml of product will last me forever!
This will conclude my Chanel exclusive week!
See you soon, beautiful!
