I'm really not a bronzer type of girl. I've recently fallen in love with this product and now use it every day. I'm NW20 and find that this looks very natural on my skin, it's never orange or muddy. Every time I take this out of my vanity drawer, I take a big whiff because it smells absolutely amazing. It was a bit pricey but since I barely use any with each application, it will last me a very long time.
Unlike any bronzer I have ever used! Its simply amazing. I love that it has zero shimmer/sparkles. If prefer makeup to look a bit more natural and matte, this is the product for you. It smells like actual chocolate and not some processed smell. I'm a makeup junky and I've pretty much tried every bronzer imaginable, and this beats the competition.
I wasn't expecting to like this as it looked so dark in the pan and I'm only an NC20. I do like it, but I can only use it during the night as in the day it can look a bit muddy and orange on me. It does have minimal orange tones and is more brown based, but I guess my skintone and undertone just doesn't work too great with this bronzer in broad daylight. It does look really nice if I wear it to go out at night though and not orange at all. I use it to contour my cheekbones and it really sculpts them, works nicely as a contour on the nose too.
Apparently it's made from real cocoa. It smells very sweet and quite strong but not migraine-inducing or anything. It doesn't break my sensitive skin out either. You can build it up to your liking as long as you use a light hand....sometimes if I apply too much it becomes a little hard to blend.

Quite impressed with this bronzer. I used Hoola by Benefit throughout highschool/college and thought that was the best one I'd used, but I think I prefer Chocolate Soleil more. It's matte (just how I like my bronzers!) and has very little orange tones, if any at all. It is pigmented so you must build up and use a light hand. I use it for contouring my cheeks and nose and it works very well for this purpose. Doesn't look muddy even on my pale skin. Expensive but the compact lasts for ages, I got mine last year and am still nowhere close to hitting pan.
I adore this bronzer! I use it for bronzing and contouring. Amazing! It looks so natural! I'm definitely buying again. It lasted me 1.5 months (applying twice daily) until the metal bottom started to show. A bit expensive, but worth the cash.
Best bronzer! Never turns on my skin, doesnt make me break out, last for hours and hours without touch up.. I can use it in the summer with a tan and in the winter when I am not tan. So versatile. It is a little pricy but it last forever.. What more can you ask for from a bronzer?
I made a video talking all about this product and I compare it to Nars Laguna. I hope this helps others!
Smells sooooooooooo good you wanna eat it!!!
Colour looks great on the box,: will have to let you know how it looks on my fair skin( I m fair/ fairly light in everyday minerals )and if it has good staying power.
First impression is very good though and the smell made me strt on the rewiew now but i will update after I have used it .
Absolutely IN LOVE with this bronzer!!!!! I love that it can provide a light glow or a deep bronze color, depending on how much you apply. And it actually does smell like chocolate, its amazing and i definately recommend this product to anyone who wants an amazing bronzer!
This is probably the best matte bronzingpowder out there!
The colour is ideal, completely brown. No sign of orangeness what so ever. I am very, very pale (NW15) and although it might look a bit dark in the packageing (especially also on pictures online) I would say it suits nearly everyone. If you are like me, you can easily apply it without it being to much or looking fake. If you are tan or dark, just apply more, as the coulour is bulildable.
The powder lasts all day and haven't given me any breakouts, luckily. Keep in mind that I'v heard a few complaining about pimples with this, but as I said, I haven't - and I react to products often.
The price is probably a bit steep, but this sure lasts a long time. Also, this smells just like chocolate, yum!
