Chanel Soleil Tan Deep Bronze is a moderately warm-toned, medium-dark brown with a natural finish. It is a permanent bronzer that retails for $50.00 and contains 1.06 oz.
Chanel Soleil Tan Deep Bronze Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream ($50.00 for 1.06 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with subtle, warm red undertones and a natural finish. When applied and blended out, it had a smoothing effect that delivered a skin-like finish that wasn't flat-matte but wasn't dewy or particularly luminous once it dried down.
The texture was smooth, lightly emollient, and had a gel-like glide on my skin, which made it easy to work with over bare skin as well as on top of foundation as it did not lift up base products. It had more opaque coverage when initially swatched, but it was prone to sheering out in practice, so it was hard to achieve more than medium coverage in practice. It wore well for eight hours before fading a bit.
While I've seen Chanel improve in other aspects of their range (and in some places, like their blush range, they have, historically, released quite vivid and deeper shades), the lack of shades in this formula is frustrating. They reformulated and re-released the original shade (the line only had one option) a few months ago, and it should not have been a secondary release to see a deeper shade like this, but this doesn't go deep enough--it is very suitable on my skin tone, which is light to light-medium. For such a cult-favorite product, it really should have more shade variety, like their powder bronzer, which came out more recently and at least had five shades.

Mineral waxes and powders ensure effortless application, while silica and soft-focus powders deliver an immediate smoothing effect. Light-reflecting pigments create a natural-looking radiance. The formula is also non-comedogenic, meaning it helps avoid clogged pores and breakouts.
