SO, hi. It me.
Do you ever just let yourself pretend for a minute that you’re super fancy? For me, these moments strike when I randomly get invited to sit in the box seats at a Blazers game. Or when the airline puts me in business economy and I get that extra 2 inches of legroom. It comes when I buy something NOT on sale at Nordstrom or any other bougie store. Or especially when I have more than one shopping bag on my wrist that isn’t a plastic H&M bag. The second they hand over that shiny ass shopping tote with my item neatly wrapped in tissue paper is the moment I am transported. Suddenly I am no longer Natalie with the dark roots wearing two different color Gap socks from 2007. I am NATALIE. The girl who pays full price! The girl who doesn’t get uncomfortable making eye contact with the who people who work at Gucci. The girl who frivolously impulse-buys the travel-sized items at the register at Sephora without hesitation.
YOU KNOW THE GIRL.
And I ain’t her.
But that’s okay. Because something my mother told me when I was but a little girl, begging my parents for a pink Tamagotchi, stuck with me – “Natalie, the people who get everything handed to them will have nothing to look forward to. Won’t it be so special when you do finally get to have that?”
And she was right.
Enter: The Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzer. A $50 product I’ve wanted forever. It is the bronzer to the stars. The bronzer that all other bronzers aspire to be. It is the perfect tone and consistency. It changes lives. It is CHANEL. It is everything.
And now…thanks to sister Meg…I OWN IT.
*cue maniacal laugh in a french accent*
The black and gold! Be still my heart.
Oh haaaaaaiiii interlocking Cs!
Doesn’t this look like perfect swirly tootsie poop? I hate to use the word poop in the same post as CHANEL but c’est la vie mes amies.
This product is best applied with a stippling brush, or a semi densely packed contour brush. You could also apply it with a sponge or your fingers. It’s french! Anything goes.
Here I am wearing this bronzer to the first Blazers playoff game where they laid a giant egg against the Pelicans. Apparently they did not have their game faces on.
BUT I SURE DID.
