Soleil Tan de Chanel Sheer Illuminating Fluid-Sunkissed: Review and Swatches

Sheer, weightless liquid instantly brightens skin and evens out skin tone. Light-reflecting pigments provide radiance and luminosity. Botanical extracts soften, smooth and moisturize. Oil free. Fragrance free.
Someone down the line perpetrated the myth that in order to have a sunkissed glow you have to be tan or bronzed. I don't agree with this at all. Firstly, not everyone likes the tan look on the themselves. It just doesn't look natural or chic on everyone. Secondly, glow should look like it is emanating from within and is not uniform flat colour. It is so easy to go over board and then-in the flick of the tanning bed switch- you look George Hamilton. 

Chanel understands bronze glow for pale girls. So many highlighters that promise the "sunkissed goddess" effect clash with my skin or look too fake to step out into public. In a liquid highlighter I don't want sparkles, glitter, metallic, frost or wetness; I want luminous, healthy, radiant "my skin but better." This product certainly delivers that. It catches the light in a subtle and sophisticated way and doesn't look like you are wearing a highlighter. 

This illuminator has a medium consistency and blends well over the skin. The dry time allows for blending and layering so it avoids patchiness. It also works on oily skin because once it dries it stays put. Application is as easy as a shake, dab, and blend to the high points of the face.

The swatch below shows the illuminator at its full and medium opacity. When it is properly blended, it is difficult to photograph up close because flash can overpower the in-person glow. 

Grade: A
