This may be a little bit late – okay really late – and I’m not just talking about the fact that I’m gushing about this bronzer as the summer months are coming to an end, but because this bronzer is one that is well-known and so loved. Which is why I needed to dedicate an entire post to it, but I’m sure anything I say will not be that much different than what you’ve already heard, if you have heard about this product.
I, however, still need to gush about it and tell you how freaking amazing it is!
This bronzer has made an appearance on the beauty section of my blog already, in my Spring Routine Make-Up post but really I cannot emphasize how gorgeous this bronzer applies and lasts throughout the day on those ranging from light to tan skin tones. I actually even saw someone use it on darker skin tones and it gave such a beautiful glow to the face.
It is the perfect transition from summer to fall as it is extremely build-able, easy to apply, and the best of both worlds for those who have either dry or oily skin. It’s initially a cream product, but blends into a powder. If you dab it on, it does not get patchy or smudgy, and even if you swipe it on, depending on how far back you take it to the temples, it has a very nice framing effect that structures the face (basically contouring at it’s finest and easiest)! It’s also great for all over bronzing the forehead and jaw-line, giving the face such a natural sun-kissed look without going overboard. It does have flecks of gold shimmer, but it doesn’t translate when applied on the face. You barely see the shimmer as it’s only meant to give an overall glow and shine without being too dewy.
Chanel make-up products, much like the brand itself, are a bit on the pricey side, but I have had my bronzer for about 6 months and barely made a dent in it… and I use it every single day.
I have also used it as an outer crease shadow, as well as a base for more brown glittery pigments.
It’s by far the only bronze product I have been reaching for the last ten months!
Have you tried it? How do you like it? Is there a special way I should be using it for a more flawless finish?
