Soleil Tan De Chanel

Hello lovelies, so you may or may not know (you will know if you read my 21st birthday haul post) I received the Soleil Tan De Chanel as part of my presents from my gorgeous boyfriend  and I have been absolutely loving it ever since, (Soleil Tan De Chanel) is a cream bronzer, it may be hard to believe that I am so in love with a cream bronzer as I have very fair skin and many fair skinned ladies hesitate to use it or presume it will be too 'orangey' on them and do not purchase it but I honestly couldn’t be more in love with it.

I completely agree with the hype around the product, it is absolutely gorgeous and can be used under or over your foundation.

Packaging wise once more this is of the typical Chanel styling with the famous interlinking double "C" trademark. The packaging is sleek with a luxurious feel with the round lid which twists open and a plastic covered lid inside to protect the cream bronzer. As for the size it is rather large and heavy so isn't ideal for travelling which is a bit of a pain for me but If I know I am going to be traveling and want to use it I tend to decant it into a smaller container which has been working for me, the bonus about the packaging being so big means that you get so much product inside (yay to Chanel for that).

Soleil Tan de Chanel is obviously a bronzing product with a strong yellow undertone. If you look up close when Soleil Tan de Chanel is in the pan it does have the tiniest flecks of glitter/shimmer which oddly don't translate on to the skin (I honestly couldn't be happier about this as I have always and probably will always hate glittery bronzers). I honestly fee that Soleil Tan De Chanel works absolutely perfectly with my skin tone and is suitable for light to medium skin tones but I have read many reviews that say it is a little too light for darker skin tones.

In terms of texture Soleil Tan de Chanel blends and applies a lot like a cream product and yet it has a whipped mousse like consistency.

Soleil Tan de Chanel is so lovely to wear, a little goes a long way and can be used as a bronzer or  mixed with foundation to deepen your base, I can honestly say it is one of the most natural looking bronzers I have ever worn and it is up there with NARS Laguna as one of my favourites.

This product is versatile as it can cater to the look you are aiming to achieve, a sun kissed glow or for a contour.

If I am using it as a contour I tend to apply it and then use a powdered bronzer on top to completely seal the bronzer so it lasts all day and doesn't melt or slide off my face and also tones down the potential orangey tone in some lighting.

Overall I would DEFINITELY recommend this to anyone who likes wearing bronzer, I’m not much of a bronzer wearer and I absolutely love it which is definitely saying something, all I would say is try it out before you decide to buy it because I have heard of it not suiting some people and it would be such a shame for you to spend the money and then not like the bronzer.
