Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel – Sable rose

Chanel has released two limited edition bronzers in summer 2012 collection. I had my eye on Sable rose since it has been released but could not decide on getting it or not.  Couple of days ago during seriously needed retail therapy I broke down and bought it. I was concerned that color is not unique and that I don’t need just another bronzer since I have too many of them… 

I would not call this a bronzer – it is more of a glowy blush/highlighter kind of a product. On me it turns pretty orangey but I have no problem with that – I love those kind of a shades that give my pale skin some warmth , color and glow. I wear it pretty much instead of a blush and lightly applied on my temples and down the nose.
I tried applying it with a brush that comes in the compact- not a good idea. It picks up too much product and it does not blend well. It’s probably not bad for a touch up when you are on the go.

Compact is beautiful with famous interlocking CC and comes with satin pouch. It is also massive with 15gr of product. 

Is it a must have especially if you have last years Bronze rose or Bronze corail ? I would say no although they are not too close. Last year bronzers were more subtle, with no shimmer. This years are more luminizing. Sabrina did great comparison http://www.thebeautylookbook.com/2012/04/soleil-tan-de-chanel-2011-bronzes-vs.html

I am planing on swatching all the bronzer I have and try to compare different ones from Chane, Guerlain, NARS, MAC, Lancome…
