Chanel Summer 2011: Bronze Rose

Chanel Bronze Rose Soleil Tan de Chanel ($50.00 for 0.49 oz.) is the cool-toned companion to Bronze Corail in Chanel’s summer collection. Both variations are limited edition, and the biggest difference is in the last color: coral versus rose. After swatching and wearing the two, though, I noticed very little difference when actually worn!

In the pan, I see more noticeable variation in coloring, but when swatched, a lot of it gets lost. The first shade is a medium-dark tan with golden shimmer and sheen–it is slightly less warm than Bronze Corail. The second shade is an iridescent pinky peach with a icy white sheen, as compared to Bronze Corail’s shimmering beige (which I think is why when swirled, Bronze Corail can appear lighter–the lightness of the beige does more to lighten than the peachy shade in Bronze Rose).

The third shade is a reddened tan brown with a subtle gold sheen; it is lighter and more noticeably red compared to Bronze Corail. The final shade is a cool-toned bluish pink with a subtle sheen, as compared to the coral in Bronze Corail. When swirled together, Bronze Rose has a dirty, reddish tan look with a pale golden sheen. I found Bronze Corail to have a lighter overall appearance and more golden.

Like Bronze Corail, it wore fantastically–twelve hours of wear–and it’s a brick of a bronzer at 0.49 oz. It was a touch powdery but less so than Bronze Corail, though the texture itself was very smooth, silky, and felt soft against the skin. The included brush is great for using shades individually, because of the narrowed brush edge, while I liked a regular blush brush (I used the MAC 116) for blending all the shades together.

I just bought this and I LOVE it! I am about NC37 and this was way pinker on me when swirled, maybe because I am browner LOL I definitely recommend at least searching it!

Nothing wrong with wanting to add bronzer – how is it any different than making lashes longer, cheeks rosier, or lips redder? There really should be no judgment either way.

I wouldn’t say it’s about looking darker – I like a little bronzer because my skin is pale and dull and needs a bit of a kick to look alive, especially after winter. I can tan in the sun but why get UV damage when I can bronze myself a bit to mimic the look which I like.

I personally don’t really understand the bronzer thing either. People don’t flush brown. I can see using it to look tanner, but not as a blush.
But yeah, I can’t tell the difference of these two blushes!! Hahaha. Oh well. 🙂 I like frosty and glittery blushes anyway.

both of them are looking awesome … 😀 😀
but pls Christine can you tell me your favourite bronzer from Dior …
i know you love them and if not Dior any other Bronzer you have in mind right now 😀 😀

thanks for the review christine! looks gorgeous, but i’m still having trouble deciding, which bronzer do you like more personally — bronze rose or bronze corail? thank yoU! hope school is going well, have a good weekend =]
