Chanel Bronze Universel

I bought this product back in february after it was featured in numerous videos by Pixiwoo. I knew I just had to have it.

I heart the classic packaging!

For £26 you get 30g. Its consistency is hard to explain. I would describe it as a creamy wax which smells like Play Doh. A little goes a long way so this will last me for ages. The only downside of this product compared to powder bronzers is that brush hairs get trapped and when it comes to makeup I'm very OCD about keeping it clean.

I use this everyday as my bronzer and also to contour. I've only ever applied it with the 109 brush which does an excellent job. it really buffs it into your skin leaving no harsh lines.

In my opinion this will suit all skin tones. It doesn't look muddy at all and has the tiniest hint of shimmer.

I'm happy to declare Chanel Bronze Universel as my HG bronzer and thats without trying NARS Laguna, thats how delighted I am with this product.

  2. I've tried both this and NARS laguna, and honestly it's hard to chose between them in terms of which is best - your description of the consistency of this is spot on though!
