Product Review: Chantecaille Radiant Gel Bronzer

The Chantecaille Radiance Gel Bronzer is one of those things you don’t think you need, until you use it. After that, you wonder how you possibly got along without it all this time. I’m now on my second tube of this stuff, and thought I’d share it with you guys while the packaging is still nice and fresh.

The tube comes pinched like that, even when it’s full of product. I’m thinking that’s just the way it’s designed. When I got the first tube, I thought I’d gotten a dud. But now that I have a new tube, I think they all look like that.

From the website:
“Radiance is a liquid bronzer that offers a touch of sun and subtle luminosity to any complexion. The new formula is a cross between a gel and a creamy fluid that is weightless and imperceptible, yet smoothing and long-lasting with raspberry stem cells for DNA protection and an antioxidant youth-preserving Bearberry complex.”

Makeup that doubles as skincare? Sign me up! You know I’m a sucker for those ‘hybrid’ cosmetic/skincare types.

The gel has a bit of a shimmer, and it’s just a touch warmer than my actual skin color. It adds a lovely glow to my skin, and blurs out any imperfections. Despite the color, I’ve  used it on some of my palest clients. It translates very well on most fair to medium/dark skin tones.

I use this gel to bring down the color of any foundation that I have that’s too light (on myself or a client), and I use it just plain as a foundation. Because it’s primarily a gel formulation, oily skin types will love this stuff. It sets very well, and looks completely natural. I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a natural looking bronzing gel, that won’t transfer or run… particularly if you have an oily skin.
