Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer Review

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer Review

Hey Everyone,

I am here to tell you about my favorite bronzer today. I have tested a lot of different bronzers over time and not many have seemed to impress me. Let us start by talking about my skin type. I am NC42 in MAC and my skin is sensitive, acne prone and very oily. Hence it is never easy to find products that get along with such skin. Most of you with my skin type would definitely agree with my thoughts here. Most of the bronzers that I tried had some issue with them, either they come out looking orange-y or had shimmer that accentuates my pores or they broke me out. Then I came across the yummiest smelling bronzer ever (that is if you love chocolate): Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer. Too Faced brand has a plethora of different bronzers, some are shimmery, luminous and some are matte. I wanted a matte bronzer for contouring purposes so tried this one at the store and just loved it.

Bronzing has never been so delicious. This chocolate-scented, shimmer-free, matte bronzer is perfect for contouring and creating an all-over deep tan using real antioxidant-rich cocoa powder. It’s all the tan without the twinkle.

• Infused with antioxidant-rich cocoa powder and signature bronzing pigments to create a unique matte bronzer that neutralizes red and evens skin tone.
• 100% cruelty-free product. *Vegan friendly and paraben-free.

Packaging: The packaging is really cute. The quality is nice too. It comes in a round compact plastic case, with a built in mirror. It is travel friendly. The company seems to have changed the colors on the packaging recently.

My experience with this product: I really like this bronzer. I love contouring my face and I prefer matte bronzers for that. This one is an ultimate matte formula with a silky fine texture and it just blends flawlessly on my skin. It gives me the perfect tan I need without making me look orange-y, ashy or muddy. There is no shimmer whatsoever in this, which I love. I have been using this for a couple of months now and it did not break me out.

The color is perfect for my NC42 complexion. Those of you who have darker complexion, this color might not show up very well on you. They do have a lighter shade of this bronzer called Milk Chocolate bronzer, for fair skinned people. Now about the smell, as this has cocoa in it, it does smell divine, just like chocolate. I personally love it as chocolate is a weakness of mine and every time I open the container, it just makes me happy. For those of you who don’t like chocolate or any strong fragrance in their makeup, this smell might be overwhelming for you. I use this bronzer every day. After I apply my foundation and powder, my face looks flat without any dimensions, so I take a little bit of product with my sigma F25 brush and apply under my cheekbones and on forehead along with my jaw line for that sun kissed look. This gives a slimmer effect to my face.




• Matte formula, silky texture
• Blends really well on skin
• Perfect brown shade, does not look orange-y
• Did not break me out
• Smells like chocolate. YUMMYYY. 🙂
• Good amount of product (10 gm)
• Packaging is adorable, travel friendly
• Two versions available; Real chocolate for medium skin tones, Milk chocolate for lighter skin tones.

• The price is the only con here.
• For those who don’t like strong fragrance in cosmetic products, the smell might be an issue.

IMBB rating: 4.5/5

Overall thought: This bronzer works perfect for me. I would definitely recommend this to you ladies. It is expensive but you get a good amount of product and it will last a very long time. I would buy it again if I hit pan on this one.
