Aside from all this, the packaging is beautiful. It's beige and black casing, Chanel's signature colours, and I'll be very happy pulling this compact out of my handbag in public.
I'll be wearing mine over the top of my Chanel Perfection Lumiere liquid.
For a loose powder you could always try Chanel Natural Finish Loose Powder.
Les beiges is available in 7 shades and priced at £38
