Review: Chanel - Soleil Tan De Chanel

This bronzer is amazing! It’s hard to describe exactly what the consistency is because it looks like a mousse but it is described as a cream product which is an illuminating makeup base. I find that the name of it is a little deceiving because many will think this acts as a makeup base that is to be applied all over the face. That in fact is incorrect, because Soleil Tan De Chanel is essentially a bronzer, if you were to apply this all over the face the results wouldn't be very flattering.
The other thing I didn’t expect was the packaging. When you are paying for an expensive product, you would expect the packaging to be as luxurious as the brand itself. I expected the jar to be made of glass, just like how Chanel’s creams are but the bronzer comes in a hard plastic case. I did not expect that, however, I understand why they would use plastic. The hard plastic casing definitely makes it easier to travel with the product and not worry of it breaking; it is very sturdy and durable.

Now that I have had a little whine about all the cons, let’s move on.

The lid is black, with the very recognisable gold interlocking C’s and the jar is an opaque white. 

The product comes only in one colour. So, if you are on the darker side of colour, this bronzer wont show up on you.

The staying power of is crazy, it lasts all day, much stronger than powder bronzers. That’s most likely due to the creamy base. Once applied, the bronzer gives a very sun-kissed glow. I find that this bronzer is perfect if you want to contour and/or if you want to tan yourself up! It does the job, and it does it wonderfully. 

I use a contour brush and swirl it around a few times, then apply it in the hollow of my cheeks blend it very well, and then apply it to the temples as well.

This is definitely a MUST HAVE!! It looks gorgeous and so natural. 

Soleil Tan De Chanel retails for $48. 

Have any of you tried this or do you have any dupes for this product?
