Soliel Tan De Chanel was my first Chanel product, and I got my hands on it back in November of last year. For all of the excitement I had built up for finally trying Chanel, until recently I had used it maybe 3 or 4 times. The reason for this is just after I received it, the west Australian summer decided to knock on my door which pretty much cancels the use of cream or liquid products in my makeup routine, due to them melting off my face shortly after application. Now that it's finally cooled off I am finally getting my brush stuck into this beautiful, beautiful product.
For those of you who aren't familiar, Soliel Tan de Chanel is marketed as a "bronzing makeup base" but I use it as a cream bronzer. The only reason I can think of that you might like to apply it all over your face is if you have fake tanned your body and want to darken up your face to match. It has a beautiful smooth texture and it blends like an absolute dream. I use the real techniques expert face brush, which definitely helps to get this result. Although the colour is quite dark on my fair skintone, the amazing blend-ability of this product means that it works really well on my skintone.
This product is very unique in my collection. If I ever feel like I am looking a bit pale or sick, this completely perks up my complexion. It lasts a full day on me, but if you push it past the initial 8 hours, I feel that some of the colour starts to get lost. Would I recommend this? Yes, if you want a bronzer to warm up your complexion, and add some definition to your face. I would also like to point out that this product is a huge pot at 30g, so it will last you forever, especially if you are pale like me and apply very little to your brush.
PS: A quick shoutout to the lovely Shell that I met last Friday night. It was so nice to meet you, please go and follow her here if you're not already, she's awesome.
