Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel review and swatches

HI Girls here is my review of  Chanel – Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base

Ok. So I am really excited to be writing this post because I’ve finally got my mitts on Chanel’s Soleil Tan De Chanel! I was literally looking for this for about five months nonstop and every time I passed a Chanel counter my heart would flutter with hopes of finally finding it but it was always out of stock, sad I know. But for something really sad, you should have seen my face when the mystical rumour appeared that it had been discontinued!
Anyway, as some of you know, my boyfriend had been away working for a few weeks and while he was in the airport on his way home HE FOUND IT!!! See, they do listen sometimes.. lots of brownie points in time for valentines day (by the way, I’d love to hear you guys’ gift suggestions for V day!). I’d love to think that this was a spontaneous caring act of affection,  but I’m pretty sure it was just to shut me up and so that he would never be dragged at 100mph towards a Chanel counter ever again.Soleil Tan De Chanel review

This is my first cream bronzer and isn’t quite a mousse like I imagined because of how it looks, but more of a hard liquid (if that’s possible!). Chanel call it a light cream-gel bronzer. Or in my boyfriends technical words “It looks like poo”- he’s such a make up guru, he should be the one writing a blog, don’t you think?chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel

This has got a lovely velvety finish to give a sun-kissed look. There are a few different ways to wear this, on its own as a foundation to enhance your complexion, under your foundation as a tanned base or even over your foundation.Soleil Tan De Chanel review swatches

This should be applied with a brush, not reeeeally your fingers but I guess you could :). I’ve seen lots of people apply this with MAC and Sigma Kabuki’s. I’m still undecided about which brush to use but I’m so excited to get stuck in to this properly!

If you’re lucky enough to get your hands on this before it sells out for half the year again (or like me, you have a boyfriend that hates you complaining!) you can pick up 30ml for £29 or $48 respectively. Persistence is key- Good Luck!
