Wearing Sable Beige on my cheeks and Sable Rose as a contouring bronzer
I’m a card-carrying, unabashed, self-styled Chanel nut.
Even El Hub knows it, and it took him three days to notice that I dyed my hair pink. 🙂
Whenever I see those interlocking double Cs, I’m like a doe in headlights. I freeze in my tracks! Spittle dripping down my chin…
Hey, those beautiful black compacts are more than good looking. They’re also good listeners, and they’re always there for me when I’m feeling needy or craving affection.
Poor El Hub just doesn’t understand… When he came home yesterday, I was giving tiny kisses to the two Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel Luminous Bronzing Powders ($60).
“Um, sweetie?” he asked, uncertainty heavy in his voice. “Are you kissing your Chanel…?”
“Mmm…” I answered, “Yes.”
“That’s so weird.”
“Mwah! They get kisses because they’re good! And I love them!”
“Okay, but what’s really strange,” he replied, “is that this is not the first time this has happened.”
“Wanna hear about these new bronzers? They’re pretty rad.”
“Is this a trick question?”
“Oh, fine. Party pooper. I’d rather talk about it with the gals on the blog anyway.”
Sable Beige (left) and Sable Rose (right)
Chanel designed Sable Beige, a golden bronzed beige with whispers of peach, and Sable Rose, a darker golden pinkish bronze, to impart a subtle warmth to the skin. Both are limited edition and part of the new Summertime de Chanel collection available now on counters and from chanel.com.
See the strips of color up there in the pan? Chanel did something similar last summer with the $50 Soleil Tan de Chanel Moisturizing Bronzing Powder, except that one had four strips of color, and these two have seven.
The strips are pretty narrow, but you can try to apply them separately, or swirl all of the colors together.
That’s what I’ve been doing, swirling and wearing them as both a blush and a bronzer.
