Chanel Beige 565 Swatched

May 23, 2012

Here are some finger swatches of Chanel Beige #565. Two coats achieve a semi-transparent finish. The results from application (myself and professionally) were both a bit uneven. I personally think the coverage could be more even with three coats instead. It’s clearly a beige tinged with yellow undertones. The pearly pink flashes prevent this from looking sallow on my hands. Depending on the light sometimes I love it, other times I’m meh. It’s a nice-to-have shade, but not a must-have. It is indeed unique in my collection of neutrals and beiges though. Someone in the prior post asked if this was a repeat/repromoted shade. I believe this is new, but I’m not 100% sure. I do know early when I started noticing Chanel (in the mid-90s) that there were several variations of a “beige” shade. Le Beige, Natural Beige, Beige de Chanel or something along those lines seem familiar names, but I don’t believe any of them had any iridescent quality.
