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.



Sephora Birthday Gift 2016

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great Canada Day weekend! Every year, beauty addicts look forward to Sephora’s birthday gifts! These are little sets that VIB members can pickup for free during their birthday month. There are two options this year: a mini skincare set from Fresh and a duo from Marc Jacobs cosmetics.


The Fresh set is great for someone that’s looking to change up their skincare routine with some of their best products. You get a travel size of their Soy Face Cleanser, which is a gentle cleanser meant to remove all makeup and clean any impurities out from your skin. You also get a deluxe sample size of the hydrating and toning Rose Face Mask.


I’m always nervous about trying new skincare because of how sensitive my skin is so I thought I’d experiment with the Marc Jacobs set instead. I’ve heard a ton about this line but haven’t had the chance to try anything yet. With this kit, you get a travel size of their Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Blaqueur and a mini Le Marc Lip Creme in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.


I am honestly so in love with both of these! The eyeliner is super black and stays put all day without any fading or creasing. It also smudges out beautifully to create a more smokey look. The lipstick is super creamy and sets to a satin demi-matte finish while still feeling super comfortable on the lips. It’s a gorgeous soft pink that makes for an easy and subtle pop of colour for summer.

Which set do you think looks best? Thank you all so much for stopping by and have a great week! 🙂
