Chanel Eyeshadow Quad in 39 Raffinement

Yes, there's the Chanel quad sitting on the ground. Lol. To be honest, I wasn't very drawn to this quad. It is a neutral quad after all. I just saw a lot of people loving this which made me go hmmm. Since there is nothing about this quad that looked like it wasn't going to work for me, I went ahead and got it. Right decision, I tell you.

Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base

Chanel Bronze Universel
Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base

Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base (previously called Bronze Universel) is a cream bronzer with very fine shimmer. Shimmers are so fine that once applied, it gives to satin finish with no noticeable shimmer. The bronzer is not too dark with quite a bit of orange. It's dark enough to contour with on my skin but it will probably have more of a brightening effect on darker skin tones. Some people run away from orange bronzers but this looks quite natural to me. Especially during the summer, I like to go for bronzers with stronger orange undertone. It works well as both all over bronzer and a contour color. I used to love heavily contoured face but this converted me. This gives the most natural, polished contoured look.

Texture is so creamy and very easily blendable (with a right brush). It's not too each to pick up the product. I wouldn't recommend using a finger. I would recommend a small synthetic brush that doesn't have a lot of give and swirling it around few times. The brushes I like to use for this are Real Techniques Contour Brush, Expert Face Brush, and Sigma F82.

Staying power is fantastic. It stays on and doesn't move until I take it off. Staying power is on;e of the reasons I decided to try out a cream bronzer. I am not about to give up on contouring during summer :) but I sweat like no joke so any powder products will end up sliding off. This stays put when I sweat and blot. I LOVE!

It comes in a big jar, but as you can see in the picture, It's not wasteful packaging. It just comes with a lot of product!

Here are pic and swatches!
