Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzing Powder

I recently started using this product about a week ago. I feel like I’m constantly in search of the perfect bronzer - not only to warm up my look during the fall/winter seasons, but I’m also a big fan of contouring my face. I’d been using E.L.F.’s Blush/Bronzing Duo for quite some time up until now. Yes, now that I’ve found the love of my life that is the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzing Powder…. That SMELLS like chocolate. (Contains real cocoa).

No, really. It’s AH-MAZING. My husband actually told me that my face smelled “sweet” once I started using it. If you’re a little stand-offish by that, don’t worry. It’s a very subtle scent. 

This matte bronzing powder retails at Sephora for $29.00. A bit pricey, but so worth it in my opinion. I find that it’s a tad bit more difficult to achieve a smoother contour or application with matte bronzers. They tend to give off splotchy and uneven contours, that can even look like we just threw dirt on our face. O_O. Nobody wants a dirty looking face.

Now, with the right brush and a light hand, avoiding that splotchy contoured face is easy with any matte or semi-shimmery bronzer. BUT.. I found it extremely easy to achieve my desired look with this particular one. Very smooth application, blends beautifully. Again, love that it’s matte. And the compact is suuuper cute. :)

My favorite bronzer thus far, hands down. 

If you’re a chocolate/makeup/bronzer lover, I would highly recommend this to you.

Favorite product of December: Sephora’s Daily Makeup Brush Cleaner

If you’re like me, you don’t have the time and/or are too lazy to wash alllllll of your makeup brushes every single week. Or day. I typically wash my brushes every 1 1/2 to 2 weeks, but what about the in-between brush cleansing cycles?? Face it. Those brushes get prrrrretty nasty girl. 

So I quickly wanted to share my favorite product of the month of December. The Sephora Daily Brush Cleaner. I’ve been using this to spray/clean my brushes in-between my brush washing cycle and even after each time I use them.

You can find this at Sephora for $6.00 (2 fl. oz bottle, which is what I have), there is also a 6.75 fl oz. bottle available for $14.00. If you ask me…That’s not bad, not bad at all. :)

What it does, per Sephora:

Sephora Brand Daily Brush Cleaner is an anti-bacterial daily brush cleaner designed to quickly remove light traces of makeup between applications. Just spray this purifying formula onto a tissue or directly onto brush bristles, then lightly swipe your powder, blush, eye, and lip brushes across tissue for a fabulous dose of freshness. No rinsing needed!

I love love LOVE the fact that it’s anti-bacterial. Girls, I cannot stress this enough - If you are not cleaning your brushes as often as you should, you need to start. Each time you’re using your brushes without sanitizing afterwards, bacteria is constantly growing on them. This could lead to skin irritation to your face/eyes, and even cause break-outs. So please, keep your brushes clean! :)

Now, let me show you guys who lovely this spray works. In the image below, you’ll see that I took a dirty brush, paper towel, and my daily brush cleaning spray. 

Yucky built-up product. O_O

After using the cleaner, all of the eyeshadow on the brush is gone - Leaving the brush nice, clean and dry.

Would I repurchase? Yes. 

As always, please feel free to leave any questions or comments! xo

Nikki

Oh, hello again!

Hello beauties!

I’ve missed you. :) I know it’s been quuuuite some time since I’ve updated. :( I’ve been moving and settling into my new place with the hubby, and gearing up for cosmetology school this coming Monday. (I’m sooooo excited!) And yes, I will definitely start my blogging again since I’m all settled in now. In the meantime, I do have an Instagram account that I keep updated with (almost) everyday quick pics, so if you have one, add me!: nikki__c
