Today’s post is about a bronzer that is well known in the blogosphere and has been around for a while. Most people either tend to absolutely love it or really dislike it. I, for one. have been literally lusting after this for absolute ages but being a student on a budget I just couldn’t ever justify spending a little fortune on a bronzer even if it’s Chanel.
Since I passed all of my midterms and my mom got a discount she surprised me with the Soleil tan de Chanel in the beginning of December and hardly any make up item has ever made me so happy. This bronzer is just so luxurious and beautiful.
The packaging is so classic and typically Chanel. You can go ahead and make fun of me now(just like the rest of my family did) but I didn’t use this bronzer for a weeks after I got it. I just didn’t want to touch it and destroy its beauty. However, I did end up trying it out of course because firstly I’ve been dying to add this to my collection and secondly it’s to expensive to just be sitting there on my shelve looking all beautiful and perfect.
So was it worth waiting for this long? For me it definitely was. I’m more on the pale side and this bronzer really isn’t lying when it claims to match universally. I was definitely worried that it would be too dark on me and would make me look like I’d rubbed my face in mud instead of that sun-kissed look everyone wants to achieve but my worries were all for nothing. The texture is so velvety and creamy and though it’s easy to go a bit overboard with the bronzing as it’s so pigmented it real blends like a dream and melts in with the skin so nicely you can definitely correct it should you apply a bit too much.
This bronzer makes my skin look nicely bronzed in a really natural way. I mostly use this to just bronze my face but it also makes a great base for contouring. Since it is a cream bronzer I was really curious on how long it would last but it last pretty much all day on me, so there’s no need for a touch up. The bronzer is insanely pigmented and I only need the tiniest bit of product, so I do believe that it’s going to last me a very very long time!
Even though I love the packaging it’s definitely not very travel friendly. It’s quite huge and really chunky and takes away a lot of space in my make up bag as well as in my make up drawers. Apart from that I really love this bronzer!
Yes, it’s really pricey but it will give you the most natural fresh looking bronzed glow and it will probably last you forever. If you want to treat yourself to something luxurious or if you want to invest your money into a really good make up product which will last you and does exactly what it’s supposed to you might want to add this to your wish list.
I couldn’t be happier with my bronzer and should I ever run out of it (which I sure won’t in the near future) I’d definitely repurchase it.
Have you tried this bronzer? What is your favorite luxurious product in your make up collection?
