Too Faced: Chocolate Soleil Review

I admit it... I am addicted to bronzer. It is almost impossible to leave the house without at least applying some to my cheeks. Why you ask? Because it looks absolutely amazing! Bronzer warms up the skin without the harmful effect of sunrays and you have the ability to bronze the skin selectively. Who wouldn't love that? When I saw myself running out of my shimmer bronzer from Sephora, I knew it was time to switch it up a bit and grab myself a matte replacement.

I have been eyeing Too Faced's bronzer in Chocolate Soleil for awhile now but I hesitated simply because I was unsure of wether to go down a shade to Milk Chocolate since I am actually quite pale (NC15/20). I went ahead and stuck with my gut on Chocolate Soleil and was happy I did. It is the perfect shade for my pale/medium skin and compliments my yellow tones wonderfully! I suggest if you are an NC/NW 15 or under, to go with the Milk Chocolate.

My first impressions of this bronzer was that it was not as orange I am used to! Although it does have a warmth to it, it is much more subdued that a lot of bronzers on the market today. The feel of the bronzer is very smooth but still a bit powdery. Definitely not a buttery smoothness that you would feel with extra fine pressed eyeshadows. or loose setting powders. Also, I have heard it smells like chocolate (I'm anosmic, kiddos)!!

When I first applied the powder to my face, it looked beautiful! It's very natural (and buildable) and it very blendable. There were no splotches of bronzer where it wouldn't blend, although a good brush can help with that. Over time though, it did seem to wear off a bit so a setting spray would be much needed, or perhaps a creme bronzer underneath.

Overall I give this product and 8.5/10 and I would definitely repurchase again!
