Chocolate Gold

Too Faced Chocolate Gold Soleil Bronzer ($30.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium brown with warm, yellow undertones and a fine, golden sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, soft, and velvety texture that wasn’t too firmly pressed in the pan, so it was easy to blend out on the skin, but it wasn’t so soft that it was powdery in the pan. The powder applied evenly to my face, and it took little effort to diffuse the edges. It had a noticeable shimmer in its finish, but it did not accentuate my skin’s natural texture. On me, it lasted for eight and a half hours before fading slightly. The powder does have a sweet, chocolatly scent.

Looks like a gorgeous bronzer. So pretty on you, Christine. I have to say, I was so distracted by your beautiful earrings I almost didn’t notice the product!! A Christmas gift? You may have worn them before but I don’t remember them.

Between it having sodium saccharin in it, and the fact that even if it didn’t, it seems too yellow based for me, a big nope from me.

I was secretly hoping this would perform poorly because this is very tempting. I am fair/light and cool toned, so a little worried about the gold; plus, I just never wear bronzer (or even know how to wear it really). The most I do is use Benefit Hoola more like a very light contour and even then very rarely, but this might be the bronzer that sucks me in. This looks so pretty…I want!

I really don’t know what to feel about this. Im a big glowy bronzer fan…my faves are too faced sweet tea and mac glow with it (extra dimension skinfinish)…but I really don’t know if this is TOO glowy…is that a thing?!! How did you like it? Would you reach for it?

I don’t personally wear bronzer much outside of testing it, so I’m the wrong person to ask! It’s really a matter of your own taste/preferences for whether or not you like the shimmer-level.

I don’t like shimmer bronzers, the smell of chocolate, or even Too Faced that much, yet I tried this in store and LOVED it. I’m shocked I bought it but I’ve used it every day since. The shimmer is way more subtle on my face than in the pan or swatched.
