Chanel bronzer

I've just purchased my first Chanel bronzer and I'm not disappointed!
I have been keeping my face out of the sun as I have been using acids etc so was looking for something to give be a bit of a glow and match the rest of the tan I have managed since lockdown, but I didn't want to fake tan or use a sparkly bronzing powder.
This is a keeper. If interested Lisa Eldridge has a good you tube video on it.
Thought I'd share grin

Is it the revamped Healthy Glow bronzer in the pot? It’s incredible!

Yes, I believe so, Chanel has added coconut oil, it smells lovely and the texture blends easily.

I have oily skin will work for me, or will I be a oily mess?

I want to try this but was worried that coconut oil would be comodogenic?

I had the old version and tried to use it but gave it away. Far too orange for me. If they bring out a more red toned variant, I may be tempted as I liked the creaminess of it.

My daughter raves about it but doesn’t last on me in the slightest, I prefer Bobbi brown powder bronzer

This is the blurb on it - A lightweight cream-gel face bronzer with a velvet-matte finish that enhances skin with a sun-kissed glow. Mineral waxes and powders ensure effortless application. The non-comedogenic formula helps avoid clogged pores and breakouts.

Looking at various beauty bloggers review it seems the new colour is slightly paler.

I have dark hair with skin which tans easily and think the both the colour of bronzer and application is very natural looking.

Maybe not for everyone, I guess make up is subjective. Thought I'd post as I was impressed by it.

Lisa Potter-Dixon did a good Insta live on it.

@lindyloo57 I find it very dry and have to put a lot of moisturiser on underneath to get it to spread so I think it would be good on oily skin.

@JaneJeffer... do you have the new version? It has coconut oil in for more “slip”.

JaneJeffer Tue 16-Jun-20 12:55:03

No it's not on the ingredients list. I got it in February.

Good to hear, I just had it delivered today after seeing rave reviews.

I bought this a month ago but haven't used it yet. Any recommendations for brushes to use with it? The Chanel kabuki brush is £40. Is it worth the money? Or are there cheaper good quality alternatives?

therealladymiche Thu 18-Jun-20 23:36:15

Edina, I just use a big ole fluffy Real Techniques brush from Boots.

I imagine the Chanel brush is fabulous, darling, however it should be at that price!

I'd rather spend that on a bottle of Bolly, sweetie!

I use a Real Techniques brush too. It's the 200 brush.

lindyloo57 Fri 19-Jun-20 08:43:20

I've just ordered from john lewis, 10% off at the moment.

EdinaMonsoon Fri 19-Jun-20 09:17:42

Ah brilliant. Thank you. Brushes are something of a mystery to me. I either use whatever comes with the makeup or I have a Mac mini makeup brush kit that a friend bought for me around 10 years ago! The largest brush I have is a blusher brush but I’m assuming that these bronzer/kabuki brushes are much larger?

JaneJeffer Fri 19-Jun-20 10:07:57

It's not huge. I use it in circular motions to blend the bronzer out evenly. Real Techniques brushes are good because they're colour coded according to what they're for, gold for base, etc.

TheLadyAnneNeville Fri 19-Jun-20 11:20:20

I have this brush. I reach for this for bronzer over my Bobbi Brown brush and a Real Techniques standard size brush.

TheLadyAnneNeville Fri 19-Jun-20 11:20:47

It’s a mini brush but a full head 😉

EdinaMonsoon Fri 19-Jun-20 17:09:33

Thanks all smile Going (online) brush shopping now wink

I use the Primark ( Penneys in Ireland ) huge big bronzer brush with my Chanel bronzer.
I thought the old formulation looked better on Sali.
