Chanel Bronze Universal - A Late Post

Ever since I started doing makeup, I've learned a lot of things, tips & tricks & techniques in applying. I've also become aware of the brand cosmetics from high end down to drugstore products. One of the beauty gurus that I started following are the Pixiwoo sisters up until now. I've learned a lot from them & they made my love for makeup become a passion. In  one of their makeup tutorial videos, I saw them using this product. The Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronze Universal. Actually it's one of my wish list and I've been eyeing this for a while since Chanel introduced this cream bronzer a few months ago (I can't remember when) but it became a hype in the beauty community that a lot of high street brand especially in the UK introduced their own version of this cream bronzer. A little history here, the brand Chanel is a French, privately held company owned by Alain & Gerard Wertheimer - the grandsons of Pierre Wertheimer who was an early business partner of the couturiere Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel or she was better known as Coco Chanel (the founder, founded in the year 1909) where the headquarters are located at Paris France, we know as the Fashion Capital of the world.

Packaging : Comes in a sleek frosted jar, the cap is shiny black with the Chanel logo engraved in the center.

Net Weight : 30 g / 1 oz.

After opening the cap, another plastic cap is placed before you will be able to see the product.

Awwww, isn't it soooo pretty? 

The product have a slight common lotion-y scent. A little powdery scent that I can't quite pin p

The shade is a light to medium brown but you can see a little orange-y under tone in it. This is mainly the reason why I am having second thoughts in buying this product & it took me a while before I did cave in because I do have a heavy hand &  it scared me a lot that I would end up looking like an oompa loompa. Another reason is that it's so expensive compared to other high street brand. It also got me thinking what if I end up not liking it, it would be a waste of money right? 

Final Thoughts : I am so, so happy that I cave in & bought this beautiful gem. It's worth it! The product is so pigmented which means I little goes a long, long way! 

Thank you for dropping by!
