Well, I am extremely heartbroken because I went into Bloomingdales to the Chanel counter to see the Chanel Le Jardin De Chanel Powder Blush to see how it would look on my skin. Sadly, it was very faint and hardly showed up at all. I looked at Temptalia's review on it her swatches and pictures were beautiful and she has a darker skin tone than me, so maybe I'll give it another go, but I did pick up their Soleil Tan De Chanel!!!! I was gonna get this later in the spring or early summer when I bronze more often, but when the blush didn't work out, I went with this!
The good! The bronzer is a cream gel formula and it gives a lovely natural glow about you. I like to bronze with creams or liquids because it's good for dry skin and it gives a very subtle and natural finish and is surprisingly easy to work with. It can be very intimidating but I beg you to try it out. It looks better than powder and lasts a really long time!
Now for the bad. The price. It is Chanel after all... You'll be set back $48.00 on this lovely. But again, it's a high end brand. One bit of silver lining is the size at 1 ounce or 30 grams! You basically won't run out of this. Just make sure you screw on the lid very tightly so it doesn't dry out and don't keep it in the sun!
I am using a Sigma F84 kabuki brush with this because I use this with my Perricone MD No Bronzer Bronzer and it does such a lovely natural job! The F84 is an angled kabuki brush and it does a lovely job! It is basically idiot-proof which is nice- very hard to mess up! I highly recommend the brush even if you don't use this bronzer!
Overall, I am very happy with this purchase! My go-to bronzer has been the Perricone No Bronzer Bronzer, and while I still love it, it can be high maintenance. I will of course continue to use it because it's skincare and bronzer and you know how obsessed I am with skincare! But the Soleil Tan De Chanel is stunning and I am so happy I got this! The Chanel bronzer has been my to-go bronzer this summer!
