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.

Product Fave: Urban Decay Naked Flushed

Hey everyone! Hope you’re having a great weekend! It’s time for another addition to the Product Fave series where I share with you the products that I can always rely on to be great.

In my last post, I shared with you some of my favourite highlighters to create a dewy glow. Many brands have been putting out contouring kits that provide a mix of bronzers, contours, highlights and blushes. A few months ago, my sister gave me the Urban Decay Naked Flushed palette in Native. There are four different shade options and each comes with a bronzer, a blush and a highlight.

The bronzer shade in this palette is a warm and shimmery colour that I honestly had mixed feelings about at first since you know that I’m all about matte bronzers. But lately I’ve been dusting this around my temples, under my cheekbones and down my neck and loving the look it gives. It leaves your skin with a very natural and healthy glow. The blush is a very bright matte pink that I wouldn’t say is my favourite blush but I can make it work when travelling and only wanting to bring this palette. You also get a beautiful cool toned highlight that just gives the most wonderful sparkle to your skin.

This is definitely a pricey item but I love the convenience of having three great products in one sleek palette that you can easily pack with you. I’ll for sure be taking this with me when travelling throughout the summer.
