Questions & Answers for Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Light/Medium Matte Bronzer

Question
Right color for NW15?
I got this bronzer in Medium/Deep but feels like little dark for me.
I'm recently NW15 because of all breakouts on my cheeks but used to NC15.
Can't decide between milk chocolate and chocolate in deep.
Which one should I get??
( I also own bobbi brown matte bronzer in No.1 Golnden light and when I swatch on my hand with Chocolate Soleil deep bronzer, the bobby one is darker and oranger.)

The 'milk chocolate' bronzer is wonderful. It gives me perfect sunkissed color whether I'm pale in the winter time or tan in the summer. It gives you great color without looking like you are wearing bronzer, it just looks natural. So if you think the 'chocolate' was too dark, I would definitely try the 'milk chocolate!'

It sounds like you and I have similar skin tones. I'm a NW 15 too. I would definitely recommend the milk chocolate for everyday use. I also want to purchase the chocolate soleil moving into the summer months, because I will start up my sunless tanning routine. I know this may not be helpful, but I'd buy both.

I'm NW20 and this bronzer was AWFUL for me, had to return it. It leans very orange. I will say that it is fairly light in application, but just no for the color on fair skin. I have seen people say in reviews etc. that the original Chocolate Bronzer with a light hand is a better color.

Comparison to NARS Laguna?
Which one would you say is better for very pale skins?
I actually have a weird habit of buying products from only certain brands and Too Faced is not one of them but for a good non-muddy looking bronzer I'm willing to compromise, haha.

It kind of depends on what you want to use it for. I prefer the Milk Chocolate because it is lighter and matte but if you like a bronzer to have shimmer you should choose Laguna.

For me, I prefer Too Faced just because I wanted a bronzer with little to no shimmer for everyday all over wear. Laguna is a more dramatic look perfect for contouring.

Being a natural red-head, I have extremely fair skin. I would totally recommend this product. It is completely nod-muddy, and I am VERY picky about bronzers. I tried NARS Laguna a few years back, and didn't really care for it. It's a little too dark. The Too Faced blends really well, especially if you use a really big synthetic or duo powder brush. I might want to give Laguna another try though, because I've head good things. Hope this helped. Good luck!

For pale skin, use the Laguna. Its HIGHLY pigmented, so you can just get a little amount and then build it up as you need.

i switched from NARS Laguna to this Too Faced bronzer and i am quite pale. I like this better and its still dark enough to contour but not as harsh and dark as Laguna. You can definitely build this bronzer up to a darker tone. The best part is that everytime you use it, it smells like chocolate and its so amazing!

answer 6
I own both and am also somewhat fair. Nars laguna is a little bit trickier to blend, and it also has shimmer, which isn't AS good for contouring (I do it anyway, but it's made me look muddy more than once when I try to blend it too much)

Laguna is definitely much darker, so if you are especially pale it may not look as natural as you want it to.

What is the best way to apply this bronzer?
This is the first bronzer I've ever purchased. Since it's fall, I just want a natural glow, so please tell me what kind of brush I should use to apply it. I've been using a medium blush brush but that doesn't seem right. Also, do I put it on lightly all over (like a matte powder), or just focus on certain areas of my face? Thanks!!

The best way to apply by far is the following. You make a 3 shape starting from the hairline to the apples of the cheeks down to the jawline. You do the same on the other side- make sure you blend blend blend to create the most natural finish. If you want a more glamourous look make a 'w' shape in the middle of the face starting from the left side of the face to the apples of your cheeks, nose and back up to create that 'w' shape. That adds a bit more of a glam look. You can also just use it to contour the cheekbones and jawline if you have fair skin. Good luck!

I personally love applying this bronzer with a Sigma F20 Large Powder Brush. It is a synthetic (meaning it has black hairs), large powder brush. You could use any powder brush, but just make sure its huge. It really makes this product look more natural and airbrushed. You could also use a duo powder brush (black and white hairs) which would apply this bronzer even lighter.

I use a bigger powder brush and take it just under my cheek bones, up to my temples, and then along the jaw line. It's buildable, so you can start very subtle and apply more product to get the result you want. It never looks muddy or dirty on me, even when I go dramatic with it.

The Milk Chocolate Soleil is a few shades lighter than the Chocolate Soleil so it is more appealing to those with more fair to light skin tones. This is my favorite bronzer because it looks the most natural, where as the Chocolate Soleil bronzer would be too dark and unnatural. Hope this helps!

The milk chocolate is reccomended for lighter complexions since it is a lighter bronzer. It's still matte, still smells like chocolate, still blendable, just lighter for those who need a "lighter bronzer".

As an owner of Milk Chocolate and reading through the reviews of Bronzed and Poreless, I would definitely recommend Milk Chocolate. It seems that they are very similar but a couple of reviews have stated B&P is slightly orange-r than MC, and I know from first hand experience Milk Chocolate is subtle on very fair skin :)

I'm not sure about the shade of the poreless, but I have very fair skin and the milk chocolate looks very natural on me -not orange at all. As long as you blend well, I would think either would work well, but I definitely would recommend the milk chocolate for light skin.

I haven't tried Smashbox, but Bobbi Brown doesn't blend as well as the Too Faced. I used Bobbi Brown for over three years prior to switching to the Too Faced. I am in LOVE with the Too Faced. The colors Too Faced offers are better the Bobbi too. I am not bias towards Too Faced, I am actually a huge Bobbi fan, but I gotta give this one to Too Faced. Hope this helped!

I like the too faced but i LOVE my bobbi brown. I think it blends better and is a slightly more natural color for me. I also am not a huge fan of such a strong scent first thing in the morning- but i think you will be happy with both but honestly I would say go with Bobbi on this one.

I would say give this a try. Smashbox I think is more shimmery and I can't remember, but I think Bobbi Brown has a little bit of fine golden sparkles in it? This one has no shimmer/pearl to it, and I think gives a more subtle and mature look for everyday use.
If you are looking for something more glamorous for nights out, I'd try with Bobbi Brown.

It's not too light. I'm pretty pale, usually the first color of every foundation. And this is my favorite bronzer because it's matte and light enough to contour my pale skin without looking too orangy, muddy, or fake for that matter. Very bendable, very natural, smells delicious. Totally worth it! And this stuff lasts forever! I've had it for a year and I use it every other day and I'm not even 1/4th done yet! I totally recommend this!

I wear fairly light in BE, and I use FBI in the Urban Decay 24/7 concealer pencil, and the Milk Chocolate Soleil is a great shade for a bronzer. It is not too dark, and more importantly, not too orange. I had tried the Tarte Park Ave Princess, and that was so orange on me. The Too Faced Milk Chocolate is the way to go.

They actually have a special Bronzer Wardrobe for I believe $40 . in it are small sizes of all the best selling Too Faced Bronzers and Milk chocolate is included in that set as well as Sun Bunny, Chocolate Soleil, Endless summer 16hr wear Bronzer. They are small sizes you can fit in your makeup bag or pouch and comes with a brush. It is also a great way to try out the product before purchasing the regular size.
