    Sensitive skin beware

    Pretty color but wouldn't recommend for sensitive skin. As soon as I put this on my cheeks they started itching/burning which has never happened with a bronzer before. This bronzer has fragrance and parabens in it. Not a great ingredient list for such a high price.

    Good bronzer

    This is my favorite bronzer thanks to Tati Glamlife Guru. Easy to use applies evenly not chalky not orangey either. Good for glam makeup or natural makeup days.

    Does Not Last Too Long...

    I've been using this bronzer for years. The pros: It's really natural looking and comes on very smooth. It will also last you a very long time so I think it's worth the price. The cons: It fades away after several hours and your face can appear oily. Also, since it's a cream, if you don't spread it evenly, you can wind up with a blotchy looking tan so a really good brush is essential. I still use it from time to time, but I've switched over to a powder bronzer with a very subtle shimmer that I feel complements my aging skin better than this one.

    Tan de Chanel

    I have wanted this product for a very long time and decided to finally order it, and I’m happy I did, it goes on effortlessly and gives a smooth finish to the skin, and can be built up for more coverage if desired, even in my mature skin it looks fabulous with it on, absolutely love it.

    Favorite Cream Bronzer Ever!

    This product is one of the best if not the best cream bronzer out there. It’s natural, you barely even have to blend it. Never looks orange or muddy. Perfect color. Look like a bronze goddess from within. It will last you quite a while if you’re worried about the price.

    I like it but I will not buy it again

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I like this product my momma bought it for my birthday in New York at the original Bloomingdale’s. It’s a good product creamy and it blends well. But what’s upsetting is that If I were to tan, it would be very very subtle. I bought it in winter. It’s very pigmented. But you could buy bronzer that is just as good for cheaper. And it lasts for 5 hours and that’s really it. I would if you could afford it buy it.

    Beautiful product

    Great color. Amazing smooth application. This product lives up to the luxurious Chanel name. Remember cream first then powder. Great for all ages.

    this is beautiful not to harsh not to subtle just right.

    Great bronzer!

    Even better than I expected it to be. Extremely natural looking.

    Pretty bronzer

    I love this cream bronzer because it can look so natural and soft under makeup but over powder it is bold without a powdery look.

    May 18, 2018

    This Chanel bronzer is a classic! I've used it for years and it retains the highest quality only Chanel house guarantees! Thank you, thank you Macy's for caring to sell only the best! Aloha!

    Was going to buy a face tanner but took a chance on this first. Absolutely love texture, color and very light and airy! Sun kissed without the sun

    So so.. still wish they never changed it.

    I have been using this product on and off for 10 years, I really loved the original composition before they changed it. Chanel said product didn't change only name and container, however I faithfully used it before and know the difference. It is a good product but was better before. It is lighter and doesnt cover as well as previous but will still use just wished it was like before. Even after ten years I still want original.

    Love this product but made me have tiny break outs and clogged pores on jaw line.

    The most natural looking splash of color! I use a flat brush to place it then use a wet BB to blend it out.

    Slightly orange but blends well

    It took me a while to figure out the best way to apply this, but now I like it. I actually use a flat topped Foundation brush and first dab it onto my skin and then gently blend it in. A little goes a long way on my light skin because it is slightly orange, but as long as I blend it and don't use too much it works well.

    Well worth the splurge!

    I bought this bronzer for my wedding and I have to admit, I really was hesitant. I have never found a bronzer I loved by the idea of applying this before foundation I intrigued me. The amount of product you get is actually very generous, it's size is not even comparable to other bronzer. This actually make a this product more economical when you compare oz. and cost. All that being said, I would buy this again. It's the most natural looking bronze glow. It's easy to use and never looks muddy or orange.

    This bronzer is perfect for natural makeup look! During summer days I would just apply this to my cheekbones and forehead to contour and it looked great! It is nice and creamy and blends easily. A little product goes a long way!

    too light

    Im a tan girl in the summer and this is way too light but in the winter its too orange however in the fall when my tan is fading its perfect. It is very blendable and lasts a long time so if its your shade then its worth, i just dont think it should be marketed to fit all skin types.

    Aug 06, 2017

    Love it give you the tam tone you are looking for, covers all the blemishes and other imperfections....

    Jun 09, 2017

    Excellent product, not sure if it works for every skin type, as I just got a dark tan on vacation and it looked ashy on me...

    May 19, 2017
    Love the quality of it!!

    I am tan skin, oil/combination skin. This bronzer is definitely light for my skin tone, but I made it work by applying it over my foundation in the places where I whad Ulderico contour. It leaves your skin looking healthy and glowing without you looking greasy. Definitely takes the dullness away. It was a splurge for me, I don't think I would buy it again though just cuz it's a little light for my skin tone unless Chanel up their game and come out with few more darker shades.

    Love this bronzer, looks great and lasts long.

    I use this product daily. I wear minimum foundation and pair this bronzer for the "no make-up" make up look. I always get compliments. A lot of product, worth it!

    Skin Tone is Tricky

    First let me say I think this is an amazing product... However, it just doesn't work for my skin tone. I have light to medium golden-yellow under tones with just a hint of pink of my cheeks. I have the hardest time finding bronzers and this one on me turns a beige-orange which is not flattering at all. The funny thing is, I have seen fair-skinned girls wear this and it's beautiful! I think you need to try this on in-store to see if it will work for you. I wish they would come out with additional colors. The packaging is gorgeous, who doesn't like seeing those beautiful CC's on their makeup table.

    I liked it but....

    I didn't love it. I tried the cream bronzer and keep finding that the powder just works better for me.

    Feb 05, 2017
    Great bronzer, looks natural and it's lightweight.

    I love this cream bronzer. I have actually never worn a creme bronzer before. A little bit of this products goes a long way. It blends very easily and once blended it looks very natural. Perfect for bronzing, contouring and sculpting. I would truly recommend.

    Jan 18, 2017

    This is an awesome awesome bronzer. It looks soooo natural and stays on alll day long. Idk what I was doing before it.

    Jan 18, 2017
    Worth the money

    I have fair to medium skin and this product does not make me look orange. Beautifully blends, gives just that hint of warmth from the sun in the middle of winter. Love it and would repurchase. I already forgot how much it costed, that's how much I like this.

    Dec 21, 2016
    Pretty amazing!

    Just, wow! Wear it alone or under make-up. Nice for summer.

    Dec 02, 2016

    It was a little too light for me to be a bronzer and I didn't like the slight shimmer and fragrance.

    Oct 10, 2016

    I've been using this for over ten years. If they ever stop making it I don't know how I'll cope!!

    Sep 30, 2016

    So natural looking and perfect shade for the paler skin tone! Doesn't work for me when I am tan.

    Sep 09, 2016
    Love it

    Best Bronzer!!

    super creamy. easy to blend. Love this product!!!!

    Mar 24, 2016

    I use this as a bronzer and I think it's really good but you have to really blend it in for the best look. I love everything about this, I use this everyday for school

    Mar 21, 2016
    Best ever!

    This is the most amazing product I have ever used! It makes your face look a million dollars and so flawless!!

    Lasts a Lifetime!

    I love the glow this bronzer gives especially with a tan. I have a dark olive tone to my skin and it doesn't get lost in my complexion. It smells AMAZING and I swear, I've had this for a year and it doesn't even look like I've put a dent in it. It's a pricy item, but it will last a very long time.

    Nice product!

    Works great. Great contour color for those who have fair to medium skin tones. It doesn't really show up on tan or darker tones but all around good product!

    Love this product!

    I bought this product years ago and it lasts for so long, I am just buying my second one. I love the size of it - can evenly put a brush in there for application. The color is very natural and it isn't a heavy feeling product.

    Great texture

    I love how smooth the product applies! And it's very buildable. I've wanted to try a creme bronzer for a long time, and I'm glad I splurged as opposed to looking for cheaper alternatives. Looks very natural. Just a tip: I recommend using a dense, but soft brush. The first brush I used to apply was not very soft and it did not apply well. But when I switched to a brush with softer bristles it applied very smoothly!

    Beautiful flawless product

    This is one of the best bronzer I have purchase worth every penny I spent on it!!

    Apr 10, 2015
    Great for contouring and long lasting

    This product was very creamy and great for contouring. I like that it has a very light pleasant scent. A little goes along way so it will last. Was worth every penny!

    Wonderful light bronzer

    I have really enjoyed this because u can use to just add a warm glow to skin or use as a contour just make sure to get a good brush for it.

    Simply amazing! I'm always reaching for this cream contour product over any of my others. I'm fair skinned and it blends beautifully and stays in place all day. So far I've used an angled synthetic brush and my fingers to apply it - both work great. Highly recommend this product! You won't regret it.

    Amazing product

    Before purchasing this item I was hesitant because of the price but after my purchase it was well worth it. You get your money's worth. It's a great product, smells great and it's not hard to blend out. I would highly recommend this product if you like bronzers❤️️❤️️❤️️❤️️
