This is a really nice matte bronzer for contouring in a subtle way for fairer skin. It smells just as yummy as everyone says it does and the compact is very nice and sturdy. I have dropped and broken and had to hot glue the cracks in plastic cheap compacts, but this one seems like it would never think of breaking. There are sooooo many bronzers out there to tempt us. Too-faced marketing and research people were very clever in making this smell and even taste like chocolate if it flies into your mouth or gets on your lips. That sets it apart and makes it unique in an endless sea of bronze.

I'm fair skinned, so Milk Chocolate Soleil is such a perfect color for me! The color is beautiful and so is the packaging.....and the SMELL! How can you resist a bronzer that smells exactly like hot chocolate?! Its perfect in so many ways. I heard its limited edition though.. I hope Too Faced decides to keep this around!

Notes: This is for the DEEP/DARK shade.
The packaging alone made me want this item really badly. Now at NC40, I knew the lighter shade would not be appropriate for my skin so I was hopeful when they released a second hue. Though I adore the gold compact and the sweet scent is pleasant, this shade really did nothing for me. Truth be told, it is the same color as my skin. Since I use bronzer to contour, I really had to pile on this product to see any action, and at that point it became chalky. But do not get me wrong, it is a wonderful product, finely milled and applies smoothly. Gave this to my sister who is a tad lighter and it looks perfect on her. For the darker crew, stick with Milani bronzer, the Covergirl Queen bronzer, and for splurges, Guerlain and NARS Casino.

I needed a bronzer for the winter months because my go to summer bronzer was a little to intense for my pale skin. I set out on a search for a matte bronzer I could contour with and my search led me to this bronzer. I have heard of the darker version of this product and what I heard was good.
From my own experience I am pleased with this product. It blends nicely and looks natural. It is a bit powdery, but not too terrible. It smells like chocolate and it isn't my favorite thing in the world, but it goes away pretty quickly.

This is a fantastic color for pale people (I'm an NW10) and worked for contouring or subtle bronzing without turning at all orange-ish. I'm giving it a 4 rating, but would never repurchase because, as I learned the hard way, I'm allergic to topical cocoa powder and this made me break out in a horrible rash. I wish Too Faced would come out with a version of this without the cocoa powder; I haven't been able to find a bronzer as silky and light as this is.

This bronzer is one of those guilty pleasure purchases that also ends up having a truly functional and necessary roles in your makeup routine. I really was having a hard time finding a quality, natural looking bronzer to contour my face that complimented my skin tone and added a healthy glow, without making me look like I was visiting Florida from the Jersey Shore. I thought about just buying whatever powder I was using at the time in a few shades darker, rather than try to find a bronzer that wasn't complete garbage and filled with shimmer and/or glitter. I also wanted to depart from getting the typical kind of orangey-super dark bronzer tone that I felt like was the main color scheme of every makeup line's bronzer selection. I had heard of Too Faced Chocolate Soleil before and was intrigued to see (and smell) the product for myself. When I saw it at Ulta, I was pleasantly surprised with the color of it.. Even for a "darker" bronzer, it had a very neutral, non-orangey tone and NO SHIMMER! Yay! Only problem was that I kind of was wanting something a little lighter, just for contouring during the daytime at work, where I have to wear a full face of makeup and look fashionable, yet still day appropriate.. Behold! To my left was 'MILK' Chocolate Soleil and I knew my search was over. Its just a perfect, neutral lighter version that is perfect for adding dimension to my face, day or night. I use a darker, more traditional bronzer along with this when I want a more dramatic or fully made-up face for a night out or whatnot, but this Milk Chocolate Soleil was exactly what I was looking for. Packaging is cute, sturdy and the gold color and texture of the compact makes it really nice and easy to find when I'm digging through my purse. I've had this for over 6 months now (maybe longer) and I use it about everyday and I've yet to hit pan or really make much of a dent to speak of! Unique, cute, quality product that I highly recommend. I showed it to my sister, and she went and bought one of her own and loves it too!!

My new favorite bronzer!!! Before this, I was using Benefit's hoola and nars Laguna. I ran out of hoola and I was looking for a new bronzer at ulta. I have always been eyeing the chocolate bronzer but they didn't have the light medium version in stock.:( so I went to sephora and bought it and it is perfect for my NW20 skin tone . The plus about this is it smells and tastes (yes I had to taste it lol) like chocolate!!

I'm naturally NC10 (albino...yellow undertones) and NC20 when I spray tan. A lot of people rec'd this product to me since it'd be good for my skintone supposedly. However upon application, it was bright orange and way too dark. Just like 99% of bronzers on the market I've tried. I've actually found drugstore bronzers better than this...for 1/3rd the price.
The color sucks, so I obviously won't be repurchasing since that makes it worthless to me. HOWEVER here are 3 nice traits about Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil: 1.) Smells like chocolate...my inner fat chick LOVES that. 2.) Highly pigmented. If it wasn't such an ugly shade, that would have been fabulous. 3.) Cute, easy to open packaging.

Okay, so I believe I've had this product long enough to get over the initial hype and give it an honest review. First, a little about me so you can see how you compare to my situation: I'm fair at NW 15, but I have enough pink in the surface of my skin that I pass off as a bit darker than I actually am. I have dry skin that loves a good oil, and I tend towards dullness rather than dewiness in my bare-faced state.
I do think that Milk Chocolate Soleil (MCS) is a good bronzer--it's long lasting, not particularly orange, and smells pretty nice to boot (a lot of people say the scent is sickening, but maybe I just love chocolate that much!). If I put it on in the morning, it won't oxidize or lose its color until I wash it off at night. It's also hard to overdo this stuff, so like Dandelion blush, I'd recommend it to pale people with heavy hands and not a lot of time to blend. The packaging is also super cute in gold plastic and raised embossing, and I don't find that it's too bulky. Then again, I don't need to do touch-ups, so I'm not exactly carrying it around with me.
So those are the positives about MCS! My biggest problem with the product is that it DOES look noticeable powdery, at least on my arid skin. With setting powder, this bronzer, and a blush, I can tend to look like I got a bag of colored powder thrown on my face. Along a similar vein, I actually don't really like that it's completely matte. It's honestly too light and warm-toned to use as a contour even for me, and I'd rather have a bit of sheen in my products to offset my already matte skin.
I give this product three lippies FOR ME personally, and for other people with minimal to no oil problems. I'd also suggest that individuals with aging skin stay away from this product. I'll use it up, because really it's so subtle and lovely, but I won't buy it again. I'd rather have something that lends a bit more life to my face ::)
