a perfect sun tan: soleil tan de chanel bronzing makeup base



soleil tan de chanel makeup bronzing base / 1oz.


I picked up this bronzer two summers ago and have yet to finish this tub.  Actually I have only used a third of the product.  I use it as a light bronzer in the winter months and layer it under another bronzer in the summer.  I use this for contouring as well.  I'm glad to have this in my collection as it will make the perfect base to intensify the new bronzer I picked up from Chanel, Soleil Tan in Bronze Rose.




Originally called the Bronze Universel de Chanel, and reincarnated with a new name and packaging, Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base, the Chanel site describes this as: The velvety finish of this light cream-gel bronzer leaves your skin with a beautiful sun-kissed look. Wear it on its own to enhance your complexion, or for a hint of outdoors radiance, over or under your favorite CHANEL Foundation.


swatched and lightly blended - daylight
The product feels mousse-like to the touch.  The texture is indeed velvety, and transforms to a very powdery feel when it touches your skin.   I have used the MAC 109 to pick up the product which blends the product well.. BUT this brush sheds like no other and picking brush hairs off the product is a nightmare.  I heard that the Chanel Petit Pinceau works wonderfully with this product so that may be next on my list to try.


sheered out - daylight


This bronzer is hard to overdo if applied correctly.  You can sheer it out until the product becomes imperceptible on the skin.  I also didn't see the "orange" in this product like some reviews have indicated.  I've had it for almost a couple of years now, and still loving it.
