Chanel Summer 2016 Collection Dans la Lumière de L'Été - Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Colour

Two gorgeous color combinations, at least one for everyone! Chanel's Summer 2016 Collection Dans la Lumière de L'Été Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Colour ($65) palettes create a desert-rose glow with either shade. These limited-edition duos are versatile, lightweight powders with two shades in each to offer a contouring or highlighting effect with a sheer, natural finish.

I'm lucky to have both palettes. I purchased one at Neiman Marcus. The other was a gift from Chanel. I can go pink and pretty or tan and summery, depending on my mood and wardrobe for the day.

Each compact comes with a plastic lift-out brush pan holding a nice brush as shown above. I took my photos in full, mid-day sunshine.

Duo N°02 is shown at left directly above. It's a warm pink blush with a light pink highlighter. Duo N°01, shown t right above, is peach and tan. The duos offer different levels of pigmentation, and you'd be wise to choose your applicator based on the duo you select.

To show you maximum pigmentation, I applied all four shades with a sponge-tipped applicator. I started with Duo N°02. You can see that the light shade is a highlighter - perfect for brighten your cheekbones or eyes. Buff it into your skin, and you will glow. The warm pink - some might say coral - is a beauty. When applied with a blush brush, it's a stunning, cheerful color.

The two brown-toned shades in Duo N°01 provide an instant, believable touch of sun-kissed color. I love the slight peach tint in the lighter color, and the darker brown shade is absolutely perfect for sculpting or contouring your cheekbones. You can also blend the shades (or use them individually) and sweep them over your temples, across your cheekbones and down the hairline to the outer jaw line for a bronze look. I've had fun playing with Duo N°01 in the short time I've had with it.

I purchased the one I bought from Rahman Malik at Neiman Marcus at Tysons Galleria. You can also find these new Healthy Glow Multi-Colours at Chanel's Web site or any Chanel counter.

This looks very orange (the pink) on my monitor. I will have to view these in person.

Hi Charleston Girl! Could you please tell me if these have fragrance and/ or alcohol in them? Thanks so much!! Xoxo Wendy.

Hello CG, thank you for your review and beautiful swatches as always. Do you think the darker duo is suitable for someone with fair skin with some redness? What brush do you use to apply the darker duo? Thank you.

I am a huge fan of Chanel bronzers. I especially like Duo No. 01, and if it looks like a natural tan on your fair skin, I am sure it would work for me. I really like the peaches and corals this summer, even though pink is really the best with my coloring. The same old, same old does become tiresome! Thank you for the lovely swatches, CG!

Wendy, lanolin alcohol and typical Chanel fragrance, which is light. I didn't smell it on my skin, but if I stick my nose on the powder, I smell it.

Anne, I can wear the tan shades, and I'm an Armani 2 or 4 foundation. My skin is fair with some central redness.

I have been playing with brushes. I have not settled on a favorite yet.

I agree, Sandra. Branching out is fun!
