The Bronze Universel now know as "Soleil Tan De Chanel" has accumulated immense interest within beauty junkies, it has achieved both positive and negative reviews over the years. I think I must have been the only person who thought that it looked great but always managed to dismiss it.
The bronze universel is a cream bronzer, the texture is hard to describe as it's not your average cream bronzer - it's not sticky or greasy, it's very smooth. It has a satin like feel and is also similar to a velvet finish.
This is my favourite most perfect bronzer EVER, I have always hated powder products and I'm really kicking myself for not trying it earlier. I could easily chuck out all my other bronzers. I love the colour as it looks so natural, the application, consistency and it's long lasting performance on my skin. Oh and clearly the beautiful Chanel packaging also helps! :)
I mainly use it to bronze which is obvious but it can also be used to contour or even as a blush. This would suit almost all skin tones, a light hand is needed for fairer tones and a heavier hand for darker tones. To apply I first used a Mac or Sigma 268 but got extremely irritated as I saw the hairs building up on my bronzer because of shedding. I just hate picking them out. Therefore, I found that the best method for me is using the Everyday Minerals flat top kabuki brush as I have absolutely no shedding with it.
The only downside is the product is so large that it makes it a bit bulky for traveling. A travel size version would be nice. Chanel take note.
Price: £28 (30g) Worth every penny in my opnion, plus 30 grams of product is fantastic, as many bronzers are only 9 grams.
