Chanel Bronze Universal Review : Soleil Tan De Chanel

chanel bronze universal review

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

Price : Rs 2,450 for 30 gm

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 quiteΒ 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. Β Once Β 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 Β 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.

  1. Hey Fashionista… :whistle: looking fab as usual.. :jaiho: :jaiho: Ratiji, u look fantafabulous in every type of dress u wear.. :love: :love: can u do LOTD’s in a saree???

    1. raji, I am sorry but I wear sarees very occasionally and that too when I have someone who can help me drape. But whenever I wear next, I would post a pic. πŸ™‚

      Thanks. πŸ™‚

      1. Thankies… :happydance: i love to wear sarees.. i find them very pretty.. :teddy: but i don’t know how to drape them and my mum never allows me to wear them to office saying “if they get un-done there who will help you”. πŸ˜€ i would love to see some one in IMBB do a post on different saree looks. πŸ™‚

        1. Sarees look gorgeous raji if you know who to carry them. I am okay dokey carrying them but I suck at draping them. πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

          That sounds like a great idea. I hope someone does it. πŸ™‚

  2. Loved the styling & the look…….especially the Louboutins & the clutch. The bronzer looks pretty good!! It looks so yummy in the dibbi πŸ™‚ The lippie is brightening up ur face. Which one have u used?

  3. waoooo….i :heart: the shoes…..u look fab….cnt say anythn about the bronzer though. i dnt use bronzers personally….im ‘bronzed’ naturally!!!

        1. yeah, have acquired quite a lot of knowledge about bronzers here at IMBB. but have just not had the opportunity to wear a bronzer ever since. maybe i’ll try sometime soon. but ya, i still dont know if i’ll ever wear a bronzer during the day.

  4. u r sexy & u know it! :toothygrin: lookin fab girl!
    n those louboutins!! :drool:
    sanjeev ji is day by day becoming more polished with his photography skills! :clap:

  5. aah loved the look Rati.. I personally love and wear this kinda clothes.. really liked you in this avator. and those shoes :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool:

  6. :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :inlove: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :inlove: :inlove: izz only for u..not the bronzaaaaarrr :smug: :smug:

      1. ohhh u rember :puchhi: yeah i paired it with sky blue skiny jeans and also with beige formal pants which are narrow and ankle length…i wanted to ask u sumthng will mail u… :toothygrin:

        1. i shawww shame to shammeee jumpsuit in M&S but it was full length neeche se..i asked my sil to pick it up..coz i m on a shopping ban :struggle:

            1. this is full length only farha but i pulled it up… hihihih πŸ˜€ you soo mahaan farha :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2:

    1. It’s kinda fun to keep trying out different type sof clothes no… Afterall we are in a time when we have options. :)) Thank you. πŸ™‚

  7. Interesting hint of Neons in a Monochromatic look.. :yes:

    I have Neon Pink & Grey Animal print Sports B-ras which I use for such Peek-a-Boo looks & highlight ’em with matching/contrasting accessories/footwear/bag in such all white/black/beige look..though I use one colour at a time but your idea of 2 colours gives nice effect.. πŸ™‚

    Looking back at your pic & it reminds me my Black offshoulder top very similar to yours & with which I have worn Grey animal print one & slivery Grey cropped trousers & black+grey long neck-piece… Can send you a pic..if you are intersted.. :haanji:

      1. I have to crop my frnds pic…as it was in budday bash & not a single pic of only me. Am sending ’em on your rati@makeandbeauty wala id. You can tag it if you feel its fit enough for it…as not very good pics of mine (hair is in growing phase)…:)

  8. I love your piercing Rati :woot: I’m crazy about piercings .. I have 4 ear piercings and 1 belly button piercing. You look SO hot in this OOTD, honestly. When I first opened the page, I had to pick my jaw up from the ground :dumb:

    1. That nose piercing was quite a random daring decision. I took my soon to be married friend to get her nose piercing done and got mine as well. then called up my mom that I had got my nose pierced. :hihi: I quite like it actually. πŸ™‚ I also have 5 ear piercings. I might get one mroe but not sure. Yay for the piercings. :high5:

      Thank you. πŸ™‚

      1. me too have 2 ear piercings and have pierced my nose too but always forget to wear the nose pin. I love those tiny colorful nose pins.. and I keep buying them cuz those tiny ones are so easy to loose they just fall off.. πŸ™

        1. Awwww you’re talking like the nose pins are your li’l babies :teddy: :teddy: that’s so cute.
          I’ve been thinking a lot about getting a medusa piercing, like right under your lip, like that one girl from roadies.. but i’m scared my family will disown me :hihi: :hihi:

  9. Rati :woot: :woot: :woot: ekdam Bumtod.. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

    :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: you look absolutely fit here .. me inspired to workout :jalwa: :jalwa: and go :jog: :jog: :jog:
