Is it Worth the Buy? Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer

Happy Sunday, friends! Hope you all had a great Black Friday weekend! Today I wanted to share with you my thoughts on one of Too Faced’s most popular products.

The Chocolate Soleil Bronzer is a medium/deep toned matte bronzer with their famous sweet chocolate scent. I got a deluxe size of this when I bought a little trial set with 5 of their best selling products. You all know that Benefit’s Hoola bronzer is my all time favourite so this one had a lot to compete with. I think the overall tone is nice but for my skin tone it borders on being too warm so you have to be careful when applying it.

I find that it looks really nice blended around the temples, cheeks and jawline to wake up your complexion and you can get get away with a really soft and subtle contour if you’re careful to not apply too much. My one complaint is that I find it tough to blend and since it’s such a deep tone that can be a serious issue. Building it up slowly with a fluffy powder brush seems to be the best way to deal with that.

Overall I think it’s a really nice matte bronzer with a fairly good tone. I think it works well in the summer time for those of us with fair skin and could work all year on deeper skin tones. Let me know your thoughts on the Chocolate Soleil Bronzer if you’ve tried it. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great Sunday.

Back To School Makeup Faves!

Hello friends! I’ve always been a huge fan of anything labeled ‘Back To School’ since this has always been a very exciting time of year for me. I am a big believer that you should always wear whatever makes you feel beautiful regardless of what others thing so I always had a tendency to wear much more makeup than my peers. However, for the days when I have a super early class or just don’t want to spend a ton of time getting ready, these are the products I turn to.

I like to start out with the Essence Say No To Dark Circles eye brightener. This is a really nice light pink stick concealer that just does a lovely job of brightening up dark circles so you don’t have to use as much concealer. It’s a step that takes about 10 seconds but will make a huge difference in the final look. Next up I go with my favourite foundation, the Revlon Colourstay for combination/oily skin. It gives a great amount of coverage and looks flawless all day. My go to concealer for under my eyes and on any spots is the Maybelline Fit Me. I have raved on and on about this guy and can’t get enough!

You all know that I love bronzer and my favourite one to warm up my skin and give a subtle contour is Benefit’s Hoola. I like to apply this on my temples, my cheekbones and down my neck with a big fluffy brush for a look that’s natural and pretty. I’ve recently gotten into this L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Blush. It’s a super strange gel like consistency but when you sheer it out with a brush it gives you gorgeous ‘just in from the cold’ flush. On busy mornings I like to use the L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Hourglass Beige as a highlight since you can quickly apply it with your fingers. I use it on my cheekbones, down my nose, on my brow bone and the inner corners of my eyes to brighten my skin.

The last step for this speedy makeup look is mascara. Maybelline The Rocket waterproof is my favourite mascara ever! It separates, holds a curl and gives a really nice amount of volume! Then I go on top of that with any volumizing mascara. Lately I’ve been loving Tarte’s Tarteist Lash Paint ever since I reviewed it a few weeks back!
