Chanel Sable Beige Soleil Tan de Chanel
Chanel Sable Beige Soleil Tan de Chanel

Chanel Sable Beige Soleil Tan de Chanel ($60.00 for 0.53 oz.) includes seven stripes of shades that range from warm tans and browns to warm pinks to warm golds and beiges. Chanel recommends using different combinations of the seven hues to highlight and sculpt the face. Two of the shades looked exactly the same on me (the second and fourth shades), so swatches shown include six individual swatches and then one all-over, blended together swatch.

The individual stripes include an orange-tan with a golden shimmer, sheer beige with champagne shimmer, dirty orange-brown with a frosted copper shimmer, pale beige with a satin finish, white gold with a golden shimmer, and a muted tan-orange with a gold sheen. Together, it creates a light-medium warm, golden tan with a soft gold sheen. Guerlain Terracotta is a bit darker, less golden. Urban Decay Gilded is more orange. Illamasqua Thalia is darker and more shimmery. MAC Golden is the closest, though it has less of a golden sheen.

It’s a really soft color, and it’s not too orange or brown–there are definitely a lot of beige tones–so it should flatter a lot of skin tones that are light to medium in color. As a highlighter, this could work on warmer, deeper complexions, though, just less so as a bronzer. Because it’s a softer hue, it’s easy to apply and hard to overdo. It warms up my cheeks and adds natural color without making me look burnt or overdone. The sheen of the finish is subtle and not at all frosted or shimmery, so it doesn’t emphasize pores or imperfections in the skin’s texture. It wears about seven hours on me with a little fading around the top edges.

The texture is incredibly soft and finely-milled, feels like silk against the skin, and blends effortlessly as a result.   If you want to use it as more of a highlighter, stick with the lower half of the compact (and avoid the very bottom shade), and if you want a deeper, more bronzed color, stick to the upper half of the palette, focusing on the first three shades.

    Great review!:-) I Love Sable Beige! It is great for my NW20 skin.I also have Sable Rose which I use as a subtle blush and receive many complements on my skin when paired together.

      Wow you did get both! Do you only use Sable Rose as a blush I loved it to but for me it looked a little muddy when I tried in on my whole face maybe I did not swatched it right? Any tips, which do you like the most?

    • kona

      @Kona – I use it as a blush with a big fluffy blush brush on the apples of my cheeks ( lightly dusting). I also use the individual stripes to accent my eyelids for those quick run to the store days! I love it’s light texture; it’s easy to apply.

    Gorgeous on u!!! I just ordered guelain pucci bronzer. Gotta check this one out too!

    I could not choose between this one and the sable rose one finally I choose this one and after reading this review i am so glad I did. Thanks so very much for your beautiful post and for me its an A+!
    Will you be reviewing the sable rose one or not?

    i LOVE your eye makeup in this. absolutely gorgeous. its much lighter and brighter than usual, and without heavy eyeliner! it makes you look younger and so lovely.

  6. Am I the only person who can’t squeeze a brush into just one of the little strips in products like this, LOL? I find it impossible to use just one strip without picking up bits from others. This looks beautiful when used altogether, so I’m not complaining. I just find it a little disingenuous when companies market strip powders (or worse, powder products with tiny little swirls in different colors, LOL) as if you can get a big array of colors from them.

  7. This look so gorgeous and luxurious. I would actually buy this, and I never buy Chanel!

  8. Caitlin Mary

    That looks so perfect and glow-y for summer, but at 60$ woah.

  9. This is gorgeous! I need to pick this up x

    Christine, I know you haven’t reviewed Sable Rose yet (if you will at all) but I’m a *lot* paler than you (I’m Chanel Beige Rose 12; not sure what that translates to in MAC but about NW15 or paler if there is a paler) and was wondering which would work better on me, this or Sable Rose. Is Sable Beige too warm for a pale, cool-toned girl? 

    •  @blueraccoon Sorry, I don’t have Sable Rose and I haven’t seen it, so I don’t know if one would work better than the other!

    • Avatar of Leigh Janna Leigh

      @blueraccoon I’m NW20 and I picked up Sable Beige yesterday. I think you’ll find this works extremely well as a bronzer on your very fair skin. On me it adds just a hint of a bronze glow – very subtle and extremely easy to blend because of the soft texture. I think you’d be happy with either. Sable Rose will give just a slightly rosier look, suitable for either a blush or bronzer.

      • blueraccoon

        thanks Janna! I was leaning more for Sable Rose because as you said, I could use it as a blush or a bronzer, but I’m glad to know both would work. Maybe I’ll have to pick up both. Hmm…

  11. Temptalia

    I don’t have it, to clarify :)

  12. Maria Delatorre de Romero

    I loove this bronzer!

  13. Austin Singleton

    Christine, you look very tropical, summer-y!  I want it 90 degrees tomorrow!

  15. Danielle Thestyleandbeautydoctor Gray

    I got Sable Rose this weekend—-soooo pretty :)

    Hey Christine, kind of off topic, but I am REALLY missing the dates of your posts. I’m kinda weird when it comes to dates, and you used to have them before you changed the site. Now I don’t know if you wrote this post yesterday or a month ago, you know? It will have meaning in the future.

    Do you think for a mature skin it will be good ? thanks :)
