Chanel Summer Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzing Powders

April 16, 2011

There are two powder bronzers this summer for Chanel in Bronze Rosé 547 and Bronze Corail 537. Both are called Soleil Tan De Chanel, come with 4 stripes of colors pressed together in a 14g/.49 oz black mirrored compact with brush. They retail for $50 each. The texture is soft and finely milled. These do have shimmer but the finish is soft and luminous without any frost. I found these to be sheer-to-medium in pigment but you can layer them for more color. These definitely aren’t your high-impact brights for cheeks but rather a soft natural bronzey glow. There is enough color to wear these by themselves. The nice thing about having 4 shades to blend together is that now I can skip one extra step of applying bronzer separately.

Bronze Rosé 547 is my favorite with a soft gold, soft champagne, warm copper and soft pink. You can see from my fingers that the color can be easily picked up. Swirling a brush up and down in the powder mixes all the shades into a soft luminous bronze. The key word being “soft.” Once blended together you don’t really see the pink, but it does prevent this from being too bronzey or orangey.

Bronze Corail 537 is gorgeous as well. It’s very similar in the top three shades, just warmer and slightly darker. The bottom is a beautiful coral. On me both look strikingly similar. I don’t think you need both. My favorite is the pink one, but both are lovely.

Arm swatched over a moisturized arm:

Chanel has released a number of 4-striped powders. The only other one released in the US was from Summer 2009 which I find a lot sheerer in color. I had actually forgotten about this one. There have been other 4-striped powders from Chanel but I believe they have all been Asia exclusives (like the one from Tokyo Happening’s collection).

Overall thumbs up!
