My Experience : I bought this back in December but it’s only recently that I have started using it. This is a cream based bronzer… actually it is a hardened cream based matte bronzer. I loooove Chanel Powder bronzer and was expecting it to be equally awesome. I would say that I am not impressed. First, the packaging is quite unhygienic. It catches a lot of brush bristles and that is quite irritating. Second, the color is quite light ,imo, for a bronzer. And this is the only color available. You can build it up but this is definitely not the right shade of bronzer for dusky skin girls. Infact for my skin tone as well, I have to build it up quite a lot. Thirdly, I would have preferred if it gave some glow to the face. It is quite flat. But that makes it excellent for contouring. After a lot of trial and errors, I feel that Sigma falt / angular brushes or a kabuki brush are best to pick up the product . Since the days are getting hotter now, I find it easier to use because now the product is more creamy and easier to pick up. I definitely have to set it with powder or else it transfers. 😐
The good things are that it does not move. Once you have applied it, it stays all day long. This would work on all skin types as it is not oily and super creamy. It is one of the few that is not too orangey and neither does it change color after a while. If you are pale and want to get that lovely tanned look, you can totally use it instead of a foundation. It wouldn’t move, melt or get patchy.
I am quite neutral about the product. Neither do I like it, nor do I dislike it. I’d use it this summers but would not repurchase it. If I have to suggest a bronzer, I would any day suggest a Soliel Tan De Chanel Powder bronzer. That is my Holy Grail Bronzer. Yet to find something better than that. If you like to use cream based products for bronzing, juts buy a foundation 2-3 shades darker than your skintone, it would work pretty much the same way.
