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.

DIY Glitter Letter

Hello friends! How was your weekend? I’m so happy to see that you guys enjoyed my last DIY post so I figured that I’d bring you guys another really simple one today. Crafts like this are great for those of us that are looking to have cute decorations while sticking to a budget.

You will need:
-Foam core board
-Washi tape
-Two colours of fine craft glitter
-Craft glue
-A pencil
-A paint brush

Alrighty, so the first thing you want to do is start tracing a letter onto the board with a pencil. You can make it as complex or as simple as you want. I’m not a super crafty person so I went for a very basic shape just to make thingsĀ easier. Then you want to start painting your craft glue on the design that you drew. It’s important that you try to keep the edges as clean as possible since the glitter will stick to anything that has glue on it.

Now for the fun–and messy–part! Start to slowly pour the glitter onto your shape, with the darkest colour toward the top fading to a lighter colour at the bottom. Using your fingers, gently press the glitter into the glue. This will help to make your shape really opaque and evenly covered. Tip the excess glitter into a garbage and go over any areas that need more. Now just create a border with some washi tape and you’re set!

I think this is a great way to spruce up a room and would make an adorable gift for someone! I love to hear from you guys so be sure to tag me in pictures of your DIYs! Thank you all so so much for stopping by and I’ll see you next time!
