Gucci Poudre De Beauté Éclat Soleil

A bronzing powder with a radiant finish - the Poudre De Beauté Éclat Soleil from Gucci is like the Cartier in the cosmetics world - not cheap, but well worth the money. 

Housed in a beautiful turquoise and gold casing, the bronzer is as stunning as the packaging. It comes in a powder case with a mirror, and you will find a small brush under the powder, ready to use whenever you need it. 

My bronzer is in shade 02. The first few colors are universal if you have a light to medium skin tone. I always recommend trying a cheaper bronzer first if you haven’t used this sort of product before, to avoid wasting money on a shade that’s too light or dark for your personal preference. I’m a fan of dark saturated colors as they tend to look unnatural, so if you’re not sure, practice caution and choose a lighter shade which is buildable. In my opinion, cold (grey) shades don’t look great on fair skin. The face looks sickly and the makeup looks outdated, so avoid cold tones if your skin is on the fair side. 


The color of the bronzing powder is a rich brown. The brown color is already warm but it could be considered an orange or cold brown. The undertone would suit those with a light to medium skin tone - you just have to vary the intensity to create a finish that suits you.


This is a satin bronzing powder that adds depth to the skin, with a subtle shimmer. This texture is ideal for a natural look, as it allows you to blend the bronzer without a visible contour. On the face, it looks natural, without sparkles. 

It’s worth noting that this is a very intense bronzer - a little goes a long way. Just a little product creates a visibly sculpting finish, which means it will last a long time, but it’s also buildable to create your desired look.  It has a light and nice floral aroma and is a firm favorite of mine.
