Review: Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer

Chocolate Soleil Review

ProductToo Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer

Review: This is another "Seriously? I forgot to review this?" product, because I use it all. the. time. Omg. How have I failed this hard? I don't even know. Anyway, I kinda have a ladyboner for Too Faced products. I know they're not everyone's cup of tea depending on eyeshadow texture preferences (Too Faced's shadows tend to be pigmented but prone to fall-out, especially the glitter shades), but I've had awesome luck with them and have loved every Too Faced product I've tried thus far, with one exception.

Their Chocolate Soleil Bronzer is THE bronzer I use on a regular basis. It has replaced all my other bronzers in my daily makeup rotation. I think I used it almost every day last year, and the only reason I stopped was because I bought the Anastasia Contour Palette. Even now, I find myself grabbing for my Chocolate Soleil in the morning, because I never have to worry about it looking too orangey and I love the smell. Actually, I love pretty much everything about it. It's a lovely bronzer that isn't too warm-toned. It's not too light or too dark, and it has a matte/satin finish. No glittery sparkle!! So you can use it for contouring, which I do fairly often. It's very pigmented, the powder is finely milled, and the wear time is excellent. Plus, it smells like chocolate, which makes me happy. Keep in mind, it's definitely a bronzer shade, not a specialized contour shade, but I still use it for contouring when I want subtler definition and all over warmth.

At $30, it is a bit pricey, especially when there are a lot of decent drugstore bronzer options out there. But if it's in your price range, it's worth the money, in my opinion. You get a lot of quality product for that amount, so that initial $30 will last you a long time. Like I said, I used it almost every day for a year and I haven't hit pan.

Originally, my only complaint was that I wished it was darker so I could get a more dramatic contour in the summer when I'm tan. However, they released a new Dark Chocolate Soleil this year, which I plan to make my new summer bronzer. If you're on the fair-to-light side of the spectrum, they also make a Milk Chocolate Soleil shade. Yay! Bronzers for all!

Just a heads up, it's made with talc: if you're allergic, you'll want to avoid this one.

Rated Grade: A

Price: $30 at Sephora, Macy's, Ulta, Beauty.com
