Have you ever seen something you wish you could have but found out that it is limited edition and no longer available? It happens to me very often and when I find out it is limited edition, I act a little faster to grab that before it disappears.
Here is my latest "grab" or "score":
Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Color in No.2
Described as " Lightweight multi-stripe powder offers a palette of effortless effects. Acts as a highlighter, sculpting powder, bronzer and blush - all with a sheer, natural finish and broad spectrum sun protection. "
Chanel offers this limited edition multi-color palette in 2 colors, No. 1 & No.2 in their 2014 summer collection. No. 1 is lighter shades and more suitable for pale to fair skin tone. I got No. 2 which is perfect for my medium skin tone.
Three stripes which you can use separately or blended together. Top shade is a highlighter shade which has a bit of shimmer. Middle stripe is a chocolate brown shade bronzer and the bottom stripe is rich brownish coral blush.
L to R: Blush, Bronzer & Highlighter
Top swatch is all 3 blended
I am pleasantly surprised by how pigmented the shades are. I have read mixed reviews about ladies saying they don't show up well on skin. Each stripe is wide enough and I could use my NARS Ita brush and dip in the bronzer stripe. The blended shade may be a bit too dark to use as an overall bronzer for my face. I would probably use the shades individually.
Overall, I am very happy with how this palette turns out. I am also glad I picked this up while it is still available. By the way, I got mine from the Bay.
Would you buy a beauty product just because it is limited edition?
