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.

Is it Worth the Buy? Wet n’ Wild Poster Child Palette

Happy Thursday, friends! How has your week been? A few months ago I shared a picture on Instagram of a palette from Wet n’ Wild and you were all super curious to hear my thoughts about it, so here we go!

I spotted this guy in Walmart and was instantly drawn in because of the bright colour selection. I usually go for more neutral looks but I loved the idea of having so many options all together, and since Wet n’ Wild has some of the best formulas available, you can’t go wrong!

As usual, the 8 pan palette is split into two quads. One is more on the pink/coral side and the other is more on the blue/teal side. I personally feel more comfortable using one shade as a pop along with more neutral shadows, but you do whatever you like! This is a great affordable option if you want to experiment with colour without breaking the bank.

The quality of these shadows is absolutely amazing. They are buttery and smooth and are super pigmented. I’ve used them both wet and dry and have always come out with great results. I will say that they can be a little powdery but as long as you tap off your brush and are careful, you’ll be fine. I’ll definitely be reaching for this guy if I want to add a bit of summery fun to my look now that the bitter winter is coming!
