Soleil Tan De CHANEL

This happens to be the first item of Chanel make up that I have ever owned, I actually received this a Christmas gift off my mam and accidentally left it at home.When I finally picked it up a few weeks back I was really excited to start using it. I've read a lot of mixed reviews on this product over the years but always knew in the back of my mind I wanted to try it for myself. To begin with, the packaging is sleek and looks expensive, its a rather large size for a bronzer (I wouldn't recommend it for travelling- its not really make-up bag friendly) but you definitely get plenty of product to make it worth the cash. I can understand why some are not a fan.. I find the colour only suits me when I've got a bit of colour in my skin, at my palest this looks far too orange and fake. It also takes a bit of getting used to but after trying out different ways to apply it I feel like I've mastered it! Soleil Tan De Chanel is described as a bronzing make up base as it can be used foundation as well, I suppose like a pigmented primer but I just tend to use it as a normal bronzer. I use the Real Techniques Buffing brush to buff it gently around my face to create a lovely glow, I never use this as a contour as it is too warm so just wouldn't work as a shadow. For a lovely healthy finish (more on the sexy side) I don't powder my cheeks and it lasts impressively well throughout the day! If I really need it to stay on for a day/ night where I'm wearing a full face of make up  I will powder bronzer over it which lasts even better. 

As you can see, the texture of Soleil Tan De Chanel is different to any other bronzers you may own. It is described as a cream-gel bronzer but to me it strongly resembles melted down velvety milk chocolate that has been whipped and started to harden ever so slightly. Because of this it blends like a dream! The finish is what I can only describe as a satin matte finish, which makes the complexion warm and glowing which lets face it, who doesn't want to look naturally bronzed? I do think this is worth the money because of how long it will last, even with everyday use. If you are very fair or darker skin tone this may not be suitable for you but I highly recommend this product to you if you have fair to medium skin tone!
