Already Week 4 of my Project Focus 10. I think, by reading all your comments, that you’ve enjoyed all my previous PF10 blogs, but still, if your mind is filled with question marks, you can read my original post (link) here. Be sure to have a look at Joy, Jodi & Stashy’s posts, my collaborators in this adventure.
Recap of the Project so far…
This past week has been the hardest… I’ve mentioned previously that during my PF10, I would only use products from this project, but let’s say I cheated a little… Since I got new products for Valentine’s Day (and you know I have the patience of a two year old), I played with the new goodies! At least, I stayed on track with the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer…
♥ Too Faced ♥
Chocolate Soleil Bronzer
For years now, my HG has been Tarte’s “Park Ave Princess” bronzer. Not sure why I haven’t given more love to Too Faced bronzer as I own a LOT!!! I have 3 Chocolate Soleil bronzers (1 Milk Chocolate and 2 Regular Chocolate), simply because they are always included in some Sephora Favorites sets or Holiday palettes. As I was decluttering during the Christmas break, I chose to focus on this product, just to make sure that I hit pan on a couple this year and possibly make way for future acquisitions 😜…
What it is:
A delectable matte bronzer.
What it does:
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzing Powder makes getting glam-and-tan downright delicious. Too Faced combines the natural, therapeutic effects of real cocoa powder with their signature bronzing pigments, creating a unique matte bronzer that neutralizes red and evens out and enhances all skintones. The complexion is left with a flawless finish, a gorgeous radiance, and a subtly sweet scent.
At Sephora for 30$US (38$CND) for 0.35oz
Note: Sephora usually have them as gift with purchases or point perks so, no need to rush to buy this bronzer 😉
♥ The chocolate scent is delightful. It instantly makes me happy in the morning when I open the lid.
♥ It has a warm undertone but not too warm where I would look orange faced (not muddy)!
♥ Very natural and gives a matte look. Without any shimmer, it’s perfect for mature skin or with a lot of textures.
♥ Obviously, Milk Chocolate is great for light skin but there is also Chocolate and Deep Chocolate to satisfied every skin tone.
♥ It blends beautifully, it is super pigmented (you don’t need a lot of product) and lasts all day!
♥ In addition to being a perfect bronzer, it can be used as a soft contour & also as a beautiful transition shade on the eyelids. Killing three birds w/ one stone!! For a frugal girl like me, that’s having a lot of bang for your buck…
♥ Its versatility is also temperature-wise… it looks as good in the cold of winter’s nights as during those canicular dog days of summer.
♥ So far, it’s without any flaw! It’s a universal good bronzer.
♥ I was laughing really hard when I was putting the swatches on BM’s arm. He kept telling me that they were all identical which is partially true, but with some minor differences in tone. At this point, it’s a question of favorite brand, packaging etc… With all these swatches, it’s fair to say that I have contour/bronzer products for a lifetime and, I spared you my Nars, Kevyn Aucoin & Guerlain because the price is way higher!!! Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer is a great product! For the life of me, I have no explanation on why I always go with Tarte’s Park Ave Princess 😶. Price is reasonable and considering it’s so pigmented, a regular compact will last a very long time. To sum it up: it’s versatile, smells heavenly and doesn’t look fake!!! Bonus: Too Faced is a cruelty-free brand.
What’s you favorite matte bronzer ???
