Soleil Tan De Chanel - Bronzing Make-Up Base

This has been on my wishlist for such a long time now, so when I was in Debenhams a few days ago I finally caved, it has got a hefty price tag at £29 but you do get 30g of product, and from using this a few times already I can see this will last a long time...





The packaging is gorgeous, but who would expect anything less from Chanel! It comes in a huge plastic tub with the gold Chanel logo on the lid, it also has a plastic insert inside to prevent the product from drying out. The texture is a very firm mousse/cream I was expecting it to be more soft in texture. It does have fine shimmer its not overly shimmery by any means but its not matte either, this did come a slight disappointment to me as I do like my bronzers matte. Ive seen many people say that the shimmer doesn't show on the skin which it doesn't show a great deal, although if your out in the sun with this on your face you can definitely see the shimmer alot more than I would necessary like, but that's just me not being a fan of shimmery bronzers some people I'm sure will love it!

There are different ways to use this, you can wear this under your foundation as a base to give a subtle bronzed look, or all over your face on its own, or (my preferred way) as a bronzer on top of your foundation to contour. I apply this under my cheek bones, temples and jaw line, I wouldn't suggest applying this with your fingers as I don't think it would work as well, I've been using the MAC 109 brush and the Real Techniques buffing brush, they both work well I find the Real Techniques brush buffs it in more...It applies beautifully, looks natural and gives a smooth velvety finish.


Left - Heavy swatch, Right - Bended out

The colour is a warm brown it does have a tiny orange tone to it, but I don't find it appears orangey on the skin, the swatch above is coming across more orangey than it actually is, it comes in one shade which I think will work on most skin tones, except maybe very dark skin.


My verdict... I really like this product, I'm not a huge fan of the shimmer, but it doesn't put me off either. I love the way this applies and looks on the skin. I'm definitely glad I purchased it and can see myself getting a lot of use out of this in the summer.

Thanks for reading! have you tried this product yet? what are your thoughts?

  5. Lovely review :) I recently bought NARS Laguna but find it far too orange on my skin. I've been thinking of trying this one for a while and it looks lovely in the swatches. I prefer matte ones too usually but they are so hard to find! xx
