Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel

Chanel Les Pop Up de Chanel Bronzer

Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel ($50.00) is available in two different shades — Terre d’or and Terre Halee — and new for Chanel Les Pop-Up de Chanel Collection.  Every Summer, Chanel releases a limited edition bronzer (or two!), and this year is no exception.  It has a soft raised wave pattern across the surface, the illusion of summer sand.  Both shades are a finely-milled bronzing powder that apply naturally to skin.

If you take a swatch with a sponge-tip applicator (or finger), you’ll find it seems too much for a bronzing product, but when used with a brush, you’ll get a much softer, more natural look more appropriate to bronzing powders.  What’s nice about the underlying pigmentation is it can be built up to your preference, plus it works well for a variety of skin tones, too.

I’m on the lighter side of medium, but I’d definitely classify myself as medium in skin tone.  I find I like Terre d’or just a little more than Terre Halee on me, but I like a softer, lighter application of bronzer.  The sand pattern is cute without being too-beautiful-to-use or just a mist of overspray, too.

With a whopping 0.38 oz. of bronzer, this should last you all summer and then some.  At least Chanel didn’t skimp on product, even if this is a pricier bronzer (but the same price as other permanent shades of Soleil Tan de Chanel).

Zoya Sparkle Collection — Skittles Style

When in doubt, use them all!

After reviewing Zoya’s Sparkle Collection, I couldn’t decide what color I wanted to wear.  I was totally torn!  So, instead, I decided to go for Skittles nails, which is pretty much what you’d expect–multi-colored nails resembling the colors of Skittles.  I’m a little OCD on some things, though, so I couldn’t use six; instead, I used five, so I could have one of each color on each hand.  Nice and even!  I used all the shades except Alegra (pretty, but it was my least favorite).  From thumb to pinky:  Nidhi, Gilda, Ivanka, Charla, and Mimi.  Just thought I’d share my fun for the week! :)
