Soleil Tan De Chanel-Bronzing Powder

As my first product review I wanted to start with my favourite EVER beauty product-Soleil Tan De Chanel, in shade 62 (Terre Έpice).

My lovely friends kindly bought me this Chanel compact bronzer last year for my 21st birthday and as I have just reached the tender age of 22 and my bronzer is still going, I thought I had better celebrate its greatness.

I have used the product everyday for a year, applying once in the morning (with occasional day time top-ups if I’m feeling extra pale) and once in the evening if I am going out.One application of this product will cover you for the day,it just depends how bronzed you like to be.
The black compact itself is very chic and has the gold Chanel emblem on the top of the case. 

With the added bonus of a mirror inside, the case will double up as a compact mirror when the bronzer has been fully used.

Usually I am really clumsy and drop my bronzers, which then crumble into a million pieces, but this Chanel case has been really hard-wearing (which has been tried and tested as I’ve dropped it numerous times).The lovely black velvet cover is also a good way to protect the bronzer from opening if it is dropped- and it looks swish too.

As I have a pale complexion I try not to go for darker,orangey shades that will stand out against my foundation and skin tone. Paired perfectly with Dior’s Forever foundation (shade 020) I have found that the bronzer adds a light sun-kissed glow.

I like the fact that the colour of the bronzer is not too intense.It has a good balance between a blusher and bronzer.

The colour appears to be dark but when worn it creates a natural sheen to the cheekbones which is suitable all year round. 

In the case the bronzing powder appears to sparkle but this does not spread glitter on your face like some bronzers can often do-it just enhances the skin naturally.

There are five shades ranging from natural (my shade), matte and iridescent which can be found here.

I would definitely give this product a 10/10 as it is a long-lasting, elegant product
and very good value for money.

Although I didn't buy my first, I will be buying many,many more!
