Review: Soleil de Tan Chanel Bronzing Base

Hey Guys,

Hope you are happy and healthy. 

Now, that the summers are approaching bronzers are gonna be back into most our everyday make-up routines (I use bronzers right through out the year for more definition and color which doesn't make my face look flat). 

I bought this Chanel product a while back and have been using it since then with my MAC 182 Kabuki Brush, and you might have seen me using this in my several videos. Lets see what the company has to say about it: 

The velvety finish of this light cream-gel bronzer leaves your skin with a beautiful sun-kissed look. Wear on its own to enhance your complexion, or for a hint of outdoors radiance, over and under you favorite Chanel foundation. 

Ok, this is one bronzer which gives the most natural bronze look without looking muddy and orangey. Okay, so the concept of cream bronzer may freak some of you out, but, worry not, this will never fail you. It comes a big jar which is a transparent plastic tub. And as soon as you open it, you see a swirl of milk chocolate in mouse form and you would want to immediately take a deep dive into it. LoL, sorry being too dramatic here, but, that's what I felt like when I opened it. It has a very sweet fragrance which is divine to me. It applies evenly with looking patchy and blends in no time. It gives a very pretty satiny finish which doesn't look shiny and doesn't make my face look oily through the day and it lasts on me through out the day without being patchy or fading unevenly. I, however, feel it would work best on fair to medium skin tones. I would like to see a couple of more color variants of this product to suit more skin tones. On me, NC40+ skin tone, it's just there. 

Price: INR 2550/- for 30 gms, which is HUGE and I can easily say it would last me for lifetime. 

Overall, this is a great bronzer for a natural sun-kissed look for fair to medium skin tones. Comes in huge quantity, so, a little higher price is worth it. I will really appreciate if Chanel decides to launch a few more shades to suit a wider variety of skin tones.
