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: Nyx Eyebrow Cake Powder

Hey everyone! Hope you have all been doing great! Brows have been a huge trend over the past year on Instagram and all across social media. However, it often takes a while for the drugstore to jump in with affordable options that can stand their own against the higher end products. I came across this brow powder from Nyx in December and have been absolutely loving it!

These brow powders are available in 6 different shades, each comes with two brow powders, a brow gel, an angled brush and a spoolie. I have the shade dark brown and I find that the two shades work really we’ll with my colouring. They blend out easily and I’ve never experienced any fading throughout the day. The brow gel is a nice thing to have for travel, though I do prefer a standard brow gel most days.

Overall I think that these are an exciting and budget friendly option for achieving naturally filled in brows. Since they are powders, you have a ton of control as to how bold the final look is.

What are your favourite brow products? I’d love to hear what you’re hoping to see from the drugstore next! Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you on Monday!
