Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel vs Maybelline Dream Matte Mouse “Sun Bronze”
So after trying the chanel soleil afew weeks ago on recommendation of a friend i had play with hers and OMG talk about contour heaven! 🙌 seriously it was so easy to use and blended out like a dream! So I had a hunt for one and after seeing how expensive it was I just can’t justify nearly £40 on another bronzer right now (I have a million and 1 already) so I did some serious homework trying to find a dupe yet after googling my little heart out I wasn’t having very much luck…. until I stumbled on a YouTube video with only about 4 views (I wish I knew her name to shout her out! Sorry!) and she was using the Maybelline dream matte mouse foundation as a bronzer … A foundation you say? Whatttt??? Lol but then I had an lightbulb moment! This could well be my dupe! The mousse formula is exactly the same concept, it is matte …no shimmer… Blends amazingly….I need to try this
So I picked up the shade sun bronze from Superdrug (boots doesn’t stock this shade) and I can’t believe how much of a dupe it is! In fact it’s better as you actually have a choice of shades unlike the Chanel’s standard one, I find it works best with the real techniques contour brush it fits perfectly in the little pot and blends the product seamlessly!

So on conclusion you need this in your life! I’m so happy I didn’t splash out on the Chanel! As a lover of high end products it’s easy to get caught up on a name and pretty packaging but why spend more if you don’t have to? You can just buy more makeup with the money you save!!!! Hehe! I hope this helps someone looking for a good contour product any questions please feel free to ask!!
Much love Larny XOXOXO
