Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatch of the Chanel Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream in the shade Soleil Tan Bronze Universel.
This bronzer is a cult but recently it has been reformulated and this is the new version, I’ve never tried the old version but I figured since I’m loving the Fenty Beauty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Bronzer I could try this one.
It only comes in one shade and they call it Bronze Universel, I highly doubt one shade would be universal, so brands should stop doing that and make a decent shade range.
You can get it here for 50$ and it comes in one shade I said, while I think that’s not enough, I think it’s a shade that would work on a lot of people.
It is a neutral-warm brown with a soft golden sheen in it.
The packaging is absolutely stunning and luxurious I totally love it. It has a plastic cover to prevent the product from drying and it’s very big, it will last you for a long time.
It comes in a pale yellow cardboard box that all the products from the Les Beiges line have.
PIGMENTATION & FORMULA
The formula is quite moussy and smooth, it has a light–medium pigmentation. You definitely have to build up the colour which as I said in the past is my personal preference with face products and especially with creams.
It’s a bit too warm for my complexion and it can look a bit muddy on me.
It can get slightly streaky so you have to work it carefully but it doesn’t enhance pores or texture and I like it both on top of powder or underneath.
It has a cream to powder finish and it mashes perfectly with the skin.
I use a stippling brush that’s not too dense and it’s very easy to use. You can use your fingers but I find I have more control with the brush.
On me, it lasts around 8 hours before starting to fade which is awesome for a cream.

This bronzer is pretty but it looks a bit muddy on me because the colour is too warm for my complexion. It’s not exactly easy to blend because it can get a bit streaky so you have to be careful. The lasting power is amazing though and I also love the packaging, it’s very big so it’s worth the money if you use it every day if not, it might dry before you finish it. So in conclusion, this product needs a bit of expertise and it’s not as easy to use as the Fenty one and having only one shade is not for everyone. You can work with it and it’s not terrible but I wouldn’t recommend it.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
