We do love to find indie brands and drugstore make-up, but we also like to indulge ourselves with luxurious treats. Who doesn’t?
Having been inspired by Gabrielle Chanel (also known as Coco Chanel) and her want for women to be free from constraints, this wonderful kit makes putting on cosmetics simple and carefree. Okay, so make-up isn’t everything, but it is also a pleasure to put on foundation and a bit of lippy for ourselves, not others. And if make-up isn’t your thing? That’s absolutely cool!
The Les Beiges Healthy Glow Touch-Up set includes a gel touch foundation and lip balm, alongside a make-up bag and a foundation sponge to give you that healthy all year round glow. Let’s get down to the nitty gritty of the make-up.
The Les Beiges Healthy Glow Gel Touch Foundation is an aqua gel-like sheer formula to use alone or as a touch-up over foundation. With booster mineral pigments and soft focus powders, it helps to even out a complexion. It also includes a hyaluronic acid derivative to keep the skin hydrated, and kalanchoe leaf extract, combined with SPF 25 / PA+++ to protect the skin from environmental factors and the sun.
The Les Beiges Healthy Glow Lip Balm is infused with moringa butter to ensure lips stay hydrated and to protect the natural barrier. Once again, lips are protected from environmental factors due to an antioxidant Vitamin E derivative.
Overall, it is pricey at £95, but as a treat, it’ll become your go-to when touching up make-up, and it doubles as a new cosmetics bag, too.
