FOTD with Chanel Bronze Universel

Hi lovelies,

Hope you are dandy!

Just a few pics to share some new products I am loving at the mo...

I've a bit of a early summer tan just now, so invested in a summer bottle of Pro Lumier in shade 30. I usually use 10, but 30 matches me much better just now. Whilst at Chanel, I decided to pick up some of the much talked about Bronze Universel to see what all the fuss is about!
I've been a massive fan of Benefit's One Hot Minute bronzer for ages, so didn't think even Chanel could tempt me with a different product, but oh it has been so worth the investment. I can't even write how much I love it! It looks way scary in the pot and it took about 2 hrs of Twitter chat to decide which brush to use to apply it (I settled on a BE Kabuki), but it's absolutely brilliant!

So, this is me with foundation only - Chanel Pro in 30

it looks really solid and orange, but it actually just blends away into a lovely natural glow and is more of a moussey texture. You get a heck of a lot of product for your cash too

This is a Victoria Jackson palette I have and the blusher (looks pale pink here, but is actually a lovely coral shade) is AMAZING!!! I usually use Benefit's Coralisat and this is almost the same colour, but it's matte.

And this is the finished face! The only other products I have on is some Barry M lipgloss and my Eylure lashes.

Loving the more natural, summery look!

What do you think then? Have you tried Bronze Universel? Do you love it or loathe it?


  1. This looks lovely, I really want to get the Bronze Universal. x

  2. I really really want to try it I have been a Guerlain gal for years and stepping out of my comfort zone scares me. I love really dark bronzers, some reviews say this is paler than some what would you say?

    Very pretty btw! : )

  3. My mum has this. *Steals* I like it, but it's better for contouring than for bronzing on my pale face. You always look so pretty whatever makeup you wear! Love the peachy lips.

  4. Hey laura, you're so sweet thank you. Yes, for contouring I guess it would be great because it's barely got any shimmer. Generally a fab fab fab product! x

  5. looks lovely - how much is it? x

  6. Hi Smaira - I can't find an exact price online but if I remember correctly I think it was about £30. x
