Despite being on a serious lip product ban, when I stumbled across Chanel’s new Les Beiges Healthy Glow Hydrating Lip Balm, I couldn’t resist!
For a start, the packaging is to-die-for! Wrapped up in a slick black tube, the lid is emblazoned with a beige double C’s, this isn’t your regular chapstick! Actually, to be honest, I’m not sure why Chanel have claimed that it’s a Hydrating Lip Balm at all, it doesn’t feel rich to apply, instead it feels really like their lipsticks – a light wash of hydrating sheer colour.
I’m not complaining though, I’ve been reaching for the Healthy Glow Hydrating Lip Balm almost daily. There was only one shade released as part of the 2015 Les Beiges Collection, and it’s a peachy pink neutral which should suit most skin tones. It’s such a lovely item to pop into your makeup bag, because it looks adorable, and the formula is really great – I only need a swipe to achieve a wash of natural looking colour, which stays for about an hour. Even though the wear time might not be the greatest, it’s so easy to apply that it’s no trouble at all!
