Worth the Hype Wednesday – @CHANEL Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base

February 26, 2020

Years and years ago, I would achieve a healthy glow by unhealthily laying in tanning beds. Now, I achieve a somewhat similar look through makeup and that’s why I always get excited to try new bronzers – especially when they are super hyped up by a lot of the beauty gurus I trust! Today, I am reviewing the very pricey, highly rated Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base ($50 for 1 ounce –!

What it claims:

🔘 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 foundation

🔘 Mineral waxes and powders ensure effortless application and a mattifying effect

My experience:

🔘 I have applied this with both a damp sponge and dense brush. I get the most airbrushed, blended look with the sponge and the most color payoff with the brush.

👍🏻 The shade is a bit warm upon initial application, but blended out, it works really well with skin tone.

👎🏻 Obviously, the shade range is atrocious.

👍🏻 It blends out like a dream with both a sponge and a brush. It’s even and appears airbrushed.

👍🏻 I sometimes set it with a powder bronzer, but today I didn’t and I love the look both ways.

👍🏻 It lasts all day.

My verdict?

I don’t at all regret this purchase because it’s a beautiful product. It performs well and works with how I like to do my makeup. However, I do have other cream bronzers that give me the same result for a lot less money. I will enjoy using this up, but don’t plan to repurchase.
