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.

Tarte Black Friday Set

Hello friends! On Black Friday, my sister and I got up super early and ran out to Sephora to try and grab some of the sets. There were definitely a few that I was super interested in but the one that grabbed my attention the most was this one from Tarte. It comes with the Amazonian Clay Blush in Fanciful, a Lights Camera Lashes mascara and the Maracuja Facial Oil, all travel sized.

I haven’t tried much from Tarte so I was really excited to see that I could try three things for just $13! I was very much intrigued by the blush because I’ve heard so many great things about them. It’s a totally matte pinky colour that I think would look great for spring and summer time. It does not quite reach the 12 hour point that it claims but it still lasts pretty well. It blended out very easily and gave me a nice and even amount of colour.

You also get the Lights, Camera, Lashes which is another I have never tried but was looking forward to. It gives really great volume and length to my lashes and didn’t flake or do anything funny during the day. It also layers up really well over a waterproof mascara–which you all know I need to hold a curl!

The Maracuja Oil is super interesting and I’m really excited that I have it. It’s a really unique kind of product because you can add it to any makeup products to make them have a creamier finish. If you’re someone that struggles with having super dry skin then you can add a drop to your foundation to change the finish. The way that I use it the most though is to just massage it into my skin after a long day when my skin feels like it needs a treat. I honestly think this travel size will last me forever!

Did you guys pick up any other sets on Black Friday? I was pretty disappointed with the Canadian selection. I hope you’re having a great day!
