Soleil Tan De Chanel

I'm finally doing my review on my new Soleil Tan De Chanel, or more commonly known as Chanel Universal Bronzer. I'd wanted to try this bronzer for so long and got really jealous when my sister bought it, but she surprised me and bought me it as a graduation present a few weeks later- how nice?! 

I'd never tried a mousse/cream bronzer before, I usually stick with powder bronzers such as MAC Matte Bronze or NARS Laguna, so I was a bit reluctant as I didn't think it would apply well to my oily skin. I was really surprised to see how well it applied and blended in, giving me a lovely glow without leaving me looking shiny. It has a lovely creamy texture and a little goes a long way, you don't need to use a lot.

 I apply this product in two different ways depending on how I'm feeling; if I want to look more tanned (usually for a night out) I apply it all over my face but for a more subtle look I use it as a contour on my temples, cheekbones and jaw line. I apply it after my foundation then set it with my Chanel Universal Loose Powder as I've got quite oily skin. It can also be applied before foundation as a bronzing base.
To apply the product I use my MAC 187 Duo Fibre brush, but I'm thinking about buying the Real Techniques Core Collection and using Buffing Brush as it's slightly smaller. My sister uses her Real Techniques Contour Brush to apply it so I'll have to try that as well.

This product costs £30 and can be purchased at Chanel counters or online here. Personally, I love this product and would definitely recommend it if you want to treat yourself or maybe get it as a gift. I've been using it for a few weeks now and as you can see I've hardly made a dent in it so I think it will last for ages!

What do you think of this product, have you tried it?
