Chanel Le Vernis in 565 Beige was the last thing on my shopping list, even when it first appeared online. I love shades of beiges and nudes on my nails but I reach out for muted roses and reds more often because they seem to brighten up my skin tone.
When I was at Chanel checking out the Les Twin-Sets, I saw Beige for the first time. I was immensely captivated by its soft pink iridescent sheen and the rest became history – Beige came home with me.
Beige is a pure beige with a yellow undertone and soft iridescent pink micro-shimmer running through. In certain angle and lighting, the pink sheen may not be visible but as soon as there is light, the pink sheen is simply irresistible. It is a unique addition to my existing stash and I appreciate its complexity.
However, I feel that Beige can be a little intimidating on my skin tone – I find it a little too stark. What do you think? For more swatches, check out The Make-up Blogette and The Makeup Look Book here and comparisons here.
