Product Spotlight

Chanel Bronze Universal

Normally when people talk about Bronzer I am impartial. I feel like Im already tanned enough not to have to wear bronzer. That was until Bronze Universal came into my life.
This is a Matte, cream (when I say cream i don't mean like a thick moisturiser I mean like a concealer) consistency, bronzer. I love it because it doesn't have chunks of glitter in it that make you look shiny it just makes you actually look kinda dewy. Think Jlo or Giselle (im not even kidding this is how good it is).

Apparently this is being discontinued and replaced with the Soleil Tan De Chanel which is exaclt the same product in exactly the same packaging except there are gold interlocking C's on the lid instead of white. Im not sure why Chanel would go to all that effort but they did. Why fix what aint broken? But for those of you that are concerned YES it is exactly the same product.

This would work well for Light to Medium Dark Skintones, for refrence I am a MAC NC30-35. For anything darker than say a 40-42 this can be used underneath a powder bronzer to hold and intensify colour. It is really longlasting and i don't have to touch up once when I wear it.

I apply it to my cheek area using a MAC 109 brush or all over using a small Kabuki Brush or even a flat Buki (that new too faced one would be perfect me thinks!)

The bottom line?
Product Rating: 5/5
Price Rating: 3/5
Packaging: 5/5
Would I but it again? Yes! and again and again and again!


  1. Does bronzer really make a difference? I'm pretty tan too and I don't really want to bother with it.

  2. Chrissy - I usually never bothered with it, but this one gives your skin a really nice radiance. You could use it instead of blush aswell.
