Soleil Tan de CHANEL Bronzing Makeup Base - Bronze Universal.

Soleil Tan de CHANEL Bronzing Makeup Base is an incredibly flattering bronzer that comes in a velvety smooth creme-gel formula, that literally seems to glide effortlessly on application, to melt seamlessly into your skin.

 This is a truly universal shade indeed  - appearing neither too orange, red, or yellow, but a perfect contour colour that will suit practically every skin tone across the spectrum, the effect is so subtle, this is great for fair skins. 

It looks very orange at first glance, but it blends away very nicely and is pretty much foolproof. Once on the skin it is absolutely matte – there’s no dewy finish. it just disappears into the skin as though you’ve just dusted on a fine layer of extremely pale bronzing powder, the product  just becomes part of the base.

I apply mine with my Real Techniques stippling brush & wear it underneath my foundation, this gives an amazingly natural contour. Then once I've powdered i will put a light dusting of NYC 'Sunny' over the top to add a little more for nights out.

I really wished they would release this in a travel size (Similar to the tester in the stores) as the packaging as stunning as it is, is just impractical as it is so bulky, but until then i will continue to use my Nars multiple in tuomoto for travelling.


Being a Chanel product, this is a little pricey at £30 for 30ml, but it is a seriously beautiful product, it looks amazing and I imagine it will last a long while. 

What's your favourite bronzing product?
