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.



Fall Decorations!

I hope you’ve all had a spooky Halloween! It’s been a crazy busy month for me but I’m finally caught up with school work so I figured I’d share with you all some of the decorations I had up for fall and Halloween. These are super easy and they work great for really small spaces!


I didn’t really like many of the fall decorations I was finding so I figured that I would just pick up some fake leaves and make my own. I got a few that had little wire stems that I twisted together to make sets of three and I also got some tiny loose leaves that I glued to some twine. I put these up all around my room and on my door and they looked super cute! I don’t really have the patience to carve pumpkins so I bought a mini one at a grocery store and took a black sharpie and drew on a jack-o-lantern face. If you want to get more crafty and creative with pumpkins, I’d recommend using fake ones so that you can re-use them. That’ll save you a ton of money and effort!


What kind of decorations did you have for the spooky season? I’m always looking for new ideas! Now on to Christmas decor! Thank you all so much for stopping by!

USA Beauty Haul Pt 2

Happy Friday, everyone! You guys seemed to really like part one of my haul that I posted on Monday so I’m really excited to share the second part with you. I have a nice mix of new finds in addition to repurchases so let’s get into it!


So one thing that I wanted to make sure I picked up was the Elf HD Undereye Setting Powder. This is a loose setting powder that is really brightening and also makes your concealer last all day without creasing. Elf is really tough to find in Canada and they’re only $3 so I figured I’d stock up. I’ve also been on the hunt for a drugstore brow pencil so I picked up the Nyx Micro Brow in Espresso. I haven’t used this yet but the colour seems like it would work really well and the formula is nice.


I have just finished yet another bottle of my much loved Revlon Colorstay Foundation so I wanted to pick up another. Fun fact: In the US this foundation has SPF 15 but because there are different laws regarding SPF in Canada, many products don’t have built in SPF. I made sure I grabbed it because you can’t go wrong with a little SPF. I also spotted the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer and figured I’d grab another one since I’m running low. (Check out my Product Fave post for swatches and other info about this concealer!)


Then I wandered down the dangerous road of lippies. I have had my eye on these two products for ages and I finally caved and got them. The L’Oreal Colour Riche Lip Stick in Intense Fuchsia is a gorgeous bold pink that is just stunning in the summer! I also got Rimmel’s Exaggerate Lip Liner in East End Snob and this is seriously the perfect natural lip colour for me. It makes your lips look so nice and healthy and will work under any neutral lipstick.


So that is the end of my USA haul! Be sure to check out my Instagram @forallstylishstudents to see these products in action in my Face of the Day series! Thank you all so much for stopping by and hope you’ll stick around! 🙂
