Review // W7 // Bronzing base

My dilemma on ‘no make up’ make up days is what to use over my BB cream to add a bit of colour back to my face. Bronzing powders tend to skip on dewy skin, and are alot harder to blend. And so, the hunt began for a cream bronzer. I came across this W7 bronzing base, which claims to be a dupe for Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel. It’s quite a claim, I mean..Chanel. Unfortunately I can’t tell you if it’s a dupe or not, because I don’t own anything Chanel, let alone a $70 Chanel bronzer. What I can tell you, is whether this $12 W7 bronzer is any good!IMG_7959Once I watched a few dupe video’s saying it WAS very similar to the Chanel one, I knew I had to have it. I managed to find it online at That was the ONLY place I could get it from. It took a couple of weeks to arrive, but.. it was so worth the wait.IMG_7961It comes in a frosted plastic jar with a screw top lid which is very tidy and great for carrying in a handbag or for travel. The texture is similar to a cream pan foundation. I decided to use my ELF small stippling brush with this as it’s a synthetic bristle, in a nice small size. It’s the perfect brush for this, if I do say so myself! IMG_7969The quality of the product itself is very high end. Unbelievably so. If I didn’t know this was W7, I would have believed it was Chanel. It blends EFFORTLESSLY into the skin, perfect pigment, perfectly even.IMG_7964The colour is more on the warm side, and has a very slight sheen to it. I love that it comes across very natural on the skin, so it works perfectly with light make up looks. You can definitely build this up for a heavier bronze too.Β IMG_7967img_7728Overall I am super happy with this purchase. It’s really easy to use, is very convenient and the finish is really beautiful. Definitely worth $12, and definitely a great dupe for a high end product!

    I really like that look on you! Do you blend it with a sponge or the stippling brush as pictured above? xx

      Thanks darling! I just use the stippling brush then I set my face with powder so it kind of softens the edges a bit πŸ™‚ x

    does it work well for photography? Will it look too dark in images?

      It comes out nice in my images, blends well into the skin so not too obvious. Definitely translates more warm toned!


  4. Oooo this looks lovely! I’ve had the Chanel one on my wish list for the longest time but can’t ever quite justify the price tag, but this is more like it! Great post! x
