Chanel Bases | CC Cream vs Les Beiges


Is having both these Chanel bases excessive? Yes. Was it worth it to buy both? Absolutely.

Chanel bases are hands down my favorite. My love for the Vitalumiere Aqua goes unrivaled and since adding the Les Beiges to my collection I've used few other foundations. When I saw the buzz around the CC Cream I knew I needed to check it out immediately. I swatched it in the store a few times and was consistently amazed by the finish. I finally caved and scooped it up and couldn't be happier. These will absolutely be warm weather go-to's. Read on for descriptions and differences.

Chanel Les Beiges : This product is Chanel's version of a tinted moisturizer. This one is a lighter coverage than the CC Cream, has an extremely dewy finish, and an SPF factor of fifteen. I purchased the color 20 Beige (which is my standard in the Vitalumiere Aqua) and since this is a tinted/bronzing product 20 Beige is definitely darker than usual. At this point in the year I have to add some bronzer to my neck, but come July this will be a perfect match. This is my favorite weekend/good skin day base. It is light, barely there, and gives the perfect glow.

Chanel CC Cream : Chanel's CC Cream is considered to be part of their skincare line...which explains the whopping fifty SPF count. Even though this product is a bit less dewy than the Les Beiges, it still has a lightweight, luminous factor and it also doses out a good deal of coverage. It's my go-to for so-so skin days where I need a bit more coverage than the Les Beiges gives, but I don't quite need to dip into my Armani Luminous Silk. The finish is pretty flawless and I've been continuously impressed by it each day I wear it. I also use 20 Beige in this product as well - however since it isn't tinted like the Les Beiges this shade is a perfect match at the moment.

Do you own either of these? If not, which one would you choose?

  1. SPF 50 is so good for a base. I wish more brands put such a high SPF in their products.

  4. Well I think now I have to get the CC cream :)) I think you can also use these two together to get a dewier finish from the CC cream. I use Les Beiges under foundation too and mix it with foundation if I need more coverage. Oh if you like the Les Beiges fluid I recommend trying the Les Beiges Healthy Powder if you haven't :)
