Although I have few Chanel products in my kit, I had to try the much buzzed about Soleil Tan De Chanel. After several trips to the Chanel counter I finally got my hands on the constantly sold out cream bronzer.
First of all I am a sucker for packaging and I must say Chanel does it well. The container is huge and not very kit friendly size wise. However I do appreciate that although the price is steep at $48 you get 30 grams of product.
Being a pretty tan person, (my color at MAC is NC42ish) I was disappointed that the bronzer did nothing for me. wah. I did observe that the texture was super smooth and velvety and had a nice smell to it.
So not for me, but I did use it for the first time today on some clients, and i LOVE it! I used it on fair to medium skin tones and the results were beautiful. Nice natural golden bronze look, not streaky, and did not get patchy. I applied it with a Crown duo fiber Stippling brush layered over airbrush. Here’s one of the clients i used it on!
So final thoughts: Great cream bronzer, not so good for darker skin tones. Beautiful packaging and also a great deal for the amount of product. I hope they make another color for us Tan girls!
