Firstly, I have to say this is the best smelling makeup product I own. It smells delicious, just like chocolate! I think it contains actual cocoa powder too. The scent is initially strong but the smell doesn't linger on the skin (therefore you can wear perfume and it won't interfere and you won't smell like a chocolate bar all day).
Chocolate Soleil is such a fantastic bronzer. It's matte and is not so warm toned that it turns orange on the skin--making it very easy to bronze up your skin in a natural way. Because there's no sparkle or shimmer it's easy to use as a contour or all over the face. For my skin tone I think the color is great, though I would definitely recommend more pale skin tones try their new milk chocolate soleil, a lighter version that came out this past year. It is really, really pigmented so you don't have to swirl your brush in it--just tap and apply! It also blends sooo nicely.
Packaging is nice and sturdy--as you can see it does get pretty dusty, but I've had this for at least 3 years now so it's gone through a lot!
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer now retails for $29.00, you can buy it from Too Faced or from Sephora. It's pricey but it has lasted me a long time and has a wonderful texture and color!
There's so many nice bronzers on the market--what's your favorite?! Have you tried chocolate soleil?
