W7 Bronzing Base or Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base Dupe!


W7 seems to be the copycat brand of the beauty industry and for that reason I've always had a love/hate relationship with it. But now and then their prices and products do lure me in which is exactly what happened with the new Makeup & Glow Bronzing Base that jumped out at me as a much cheaper alternative to Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base. 

Much like Soleil Tan De Chanel (£32/30g), W7 Make Up & Glow Bronzing Base (£3.69/35g - Amazon here) is a solid cream that is best used with a buffing brush or kabuki and can be used under or over foundation for a bronzed look. This lightweight cream is ideal for matching your face with your body in summer or just adding a matte bronzed look to the skin, which is what I love it for. However much like the Chanel Bronzing Base only a little in needed to avoid that oompa lumpa effect as it is such a pigmented product!


With quite fair skin this amazingly still works however a light stipple with a buffing brush is enough so I imagine the base to work well for fair-medium and slightly tanned skin and could definitely be built up without looking heavy at all.

In general I use powder bronzers for contouring/bronzing (favourites are Benefit Hoola and Sleek Contour Kit) however I feel a bronzing cream like this really does buff into the skin well making it last all day on the skin and can be blending so it truly looks like your own skin without a powdery finish. 

Overall for £3.69 - Amazon here, or £3.99 - eBay here I feel this is more than worth it to try out a different type of bronzer that I believe most will love.

I'm so glad I decided to try it and know it will be a staple in my makeup routine until Autumn.

Fee xo.
