Chanel Summer 2011: Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronze Corail 537 Swatches

Bronze Corail is a universal way to ring in Summer 2011!

Chanel Soleil De Tan Bronze Corail 537

Chanel's bronzer from this summer's Les Fleurs d'Ete de Chanel collection has been on my mind since I saw a sneak peak of the collection on Karlasugar. I was surprised when my store didn't yet have the Rouge Coco Shine's but had the Summer collection!

Bronze Corail features 4"horizon's" of color from the top:

Horizon 1: Taupy Shimmer

Horizon 2: Champagne Shimmer

Horizon 3: Chocolate brown Shimmer

Horizon 4: Coral Shimmer

I was so excited to see the shades that I enlisted the help of my friend V to show how flattering the blush is on a range of skintones. For reference, V is NW20ish and uses Vichy 20. We used an eyeshadow brush to apply the bronzer starting from left to right. The photos were taken with no-flash under a bright light.

Chanel's Summer 2011 Les Fleurs d'Ete debuts late April/early May.

Wow! You confirmed me that I need that bronzer although it is geared towards darker complexions I fell in love with it at first sight!:D

I'm glad you liked the swatches Livia.

If you can, let us know how it wears on your skin. Some people with darker skin tones said it wasn't showing up well. It looks so pretty.

Will do Cassandra! Once I have a chance to get some pictures while its light outside.
