Soleil Tan de Chanel – Sheer Illuminating Fluid Review

Soleil Tan de Chanel – Sheer Illuminating Fluid Review

1 607

Once a very good friend of mine recommended a Chanel product, because she knows that I 1) love Chanel makeup and 2) love illuminating products. Actually she said that it seemed that Jennifer Lopez wore it: the Soleil Tan de Chanel – Sheer Illuminating Fluid.


It is an interesting product and it does what it promises: it illuminates the areas where you apply it, like cheeks, nose, chin – to give a healthy color and glow, like if you were “sun kissed” 🙂 The effect is natural. The problem is that, normally, people who want a full makeup apply foundation and for it to last, a layer of powder to set. After that, if you try to apply a creamy product – it feels like a foundation – the effect is gone. Actually, the effect is a mess. Though if you  apply it after your foundation and then blend all, it’s OK. If you try to do it and then think “now I will set all with facial powder”, again, no effect at all. So if you don’t need foundation or powder, it’s a good product, with a natural and subtle finish – maybe even too subtle. The container is not practical. There’s no pump. You have to open and turn it to your hand, so it starts to “run”. But it’s a bit messy, in my opinion. Would I buy it again? No. But as I said, it’s a good product, with Chanel quality.

  1. Hey Denise, I just found this review and was so flattered to read about me (the very good friend)! SO sweet! And I loved your review: it was honest, concisely and after having this product for over a year (or even longer) I absolutely think the same! I barely use it for the stated reasons! But I still love the glow of it. I think it’s best for summer, when you are tanned and need no foundation or powder at all. But I wont buy it again, either! So hopefully I will use it up one day 😉 Sending you many kisses!
