I’m back with another set of Milani products. Before anything else, I need to share something. This is my first IMBB sponsored product, and I’m so so grateful to IMBB for this opportunity. You have given a new zeal to my life, and I will be forever grateful to you guys. Thanks Rati, Sanjeev, Jomol, and everyone working for IMBB. Moving on, I came across new Milani baked bronzers, and I picked up two of them in the shades: Glow and Soleil. Today, I will be reviewing Milani Baked Bronzer in Soleil.

My Experience with Milani Baked Bronzer 05 Soleil:
Soleil: pronounced as so-LEY
Meaning: Sun in French (surrounded by rays, as of a sun)
Baked products are a revolution in the market. The marbleized soft look is tantalising enough to empty our pockets. These products are initially creams which are baked over a period of time so that they dry to powders. The baking process makes them creamy and velvety.
They have fewer filler ingredients so they are more pigmented. Baked products are more luminous, vibrant quality. Another great feature is that because of their origin as a liquid, the powders can be used dry or wet.
The packaging is same as every other Milani baked product, golden box with a transparent top. Under the powder pan is the brush and mirror. If not regularly, you can surely rely on this brush when you are travelling and a mirror is always a boon. I found the packaging quite bulky, though.
The shade, “Soleil” has been described on the website as Medium Bronzed Tan with Golden Shimmer and is true to the description! It is a perfect bronzer for summers to give you a glowy bronze look. The shimmer particles are very fine and not at all chunky. When it comes to the texture, it is not very finely milled or velvety. It is definitely not very smooth to touch. The powder, however, comes too much in the brush, so initial TAP is an absolute must. It is a daytime product for me because the shade isn’t very deep or dark and gives a healthy sheen to my face. Wearing it during the night will not provide that effect which will show during the daytime. This is the kind of shade, which enhances the youthfulness of our skin in summers.
Pros of Milani Baked Bronzer 05 Soleil:
- Perfect for summers.
- Beautiful shade.
- Brush given in the package.
- Mirror given in the package.
- Good quantity.
Cons of Milani Baked Bronzer 05 Soleil:
- Shimmer can be a con for some.

- Fall out.
IMBB Rating: 4/5
Will I Recommend/Repurchase Milani Baked Bronzer 05 Soleil?
This is not a must-have product but, if you are the one who loves bronzed look in summers and do not have issues with shimmer, definitely splurging on this one will make you happy. It is great in quantity, and you will never run out of this all your life.
