Too Faced (Milk) Chocolate Soleil Bronzer & Sweet Tea Bronzer // REVIEW + COMPARISON

You have no idea how excited I was to finally see Too Faced being sold in Austria and on Obviously Too Faced is a cult classic, everybody in the beauty industry knows their brand and products, and I couldn't wait to finally be able to try them for myself.

Recently I have been utterly obsessed with bronzing, I literally use 4 different bronzers every time I get ready in the morning, no joke. It sounds crazy, but that's how obsessed I am. Maybe because I'm pale like a ghost, especially in the winter time my face needs a little bronze.

(Milk) Chocolate Soleil Bronzer

I wasn't quite sure whether to pick up their original shade in Chocolate Soleil or go for their somewhat new addition to the family, their Milk Chocolate Soleil which is suited for fair skin. If you know me, you know I had to pick up both when not being able to decide on one.

In the pan, Milk Chocolate looks like a very nice fair bronzer shade, while their original Chocolate Soleil looks extremely dark.

If you swatch them you can still see how their original shade is definitely quite a bit darker than their Milk Chocolate Soleil.

My problem with the Milk Chocolate one is that for some reason I barely get any colour pay-off (Am I doing something wrong?). With their other shade, I don't have that problem, it comes off really nicely, also on the face. If I use a very very light hand with it, I can definitely make it work even with my super fair skin. I think it's a lot better suited for medium skin tones though, or in summer when I get a little tan.

Both of those bronzers are completely matte, also the dark shade that they do (Dark Chocolate Soleil) is a matte bronzer with no shimmer or glitter.

If you are wondering if it smells like chocolate - yes, it really does. I love them more for their smell if I'm being completely honest with you. I still smell it on my brush the day after.

Purchase the Chocolate Soleil and the Milk Chocolate at Douglas.

Baked Luminous Glow Bronzer, Sweet Tea

As the name would suggest, this one is a glowy bronzer that has tiny little specks of glitter in either side. The left side is a bit lighter than the right, you can choose to use only one or swirl them together like I do.

Do not be fooled by the word "glitter", this bronzer is definitely not glittery. You cannot detect any specks of glitter on your face, it gives a very nice and natural sheen to the skin without looking too shimmery. The name "luminous glow bronzer" hits the nail on the head, it's exactly what it does - it gives your skin a luminous lit-from-within kind of glow.

f.l.t.r.: Milk Chocolate Soleil, original Chocolate Soleil Bronzer, Sweet Tea Bronzer

Most of the time, I use this one more like a bronzer topper when I'm done with my other five layers of different bronzers, just to give it all a little bit of a healthy sheen rather than being super matte.

If I had to choose between their Chocolate Soleil line or the Sweethearts bronzer, I would definitely go with the Sweethearts one. I've never been into shimmery bronzers but this one is so natural, I love it to bits. Definitely recommend.
