A beautiful formula with a touch of gold to compliment all undertones, now in a new shade.



It is no secret that CHANEL has perfected the art of the subtle, French-inspired, and refined makeup. They are CHANEL, afterall. But even within their world of perfect products, there exist those that are truly exceptional.  

We at VIOLET GREY are keen observers of the goings on behind the scenes at all of the scenes worth noting. So, when we kept seeing the CHANEL Les Beiges Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream in the kits of notable makeup artists from Fashion Week to red carpets worldwide, we knew we had to have it for ourselves. 

All it took was one swipe of this cream-gel bronzer for us to be hooked. It glides on and blends in effortlessly, never looking orange or stripey. The finish is a beautiful velvet matte with just a hint of sun-kissed glow – it was as though we had a bronzy, beachy, Instagram filter IRL. As we knew they would be, VIOLET GREY shoppers were as enamoured with this easy-to-use bronzer as we were, and we’ve barely been able to keep it on THE SHELVES since its launch.  

Now–drumroll please–we have the honor of introducing this cult-favorite in a brand new shade: Soleil Tan Deep Bronze. Like it’s older sibling, this new color is a beautiful neutral with just a touch of gold to compliment all undertones, now for deeper skin.


We had little doubt that our Committee of Industry Experts would be just as head over heels for this product as we were, but as with every item carried at VIOLET GREY, we sent it to our testers to get their seal of approval.

“This bronzer is one of my all time favorite products out there. I use it on every face I paint. It gives the most beautiful glow while adding warmth to the skin.” –  GEORGIE EISDELL, Makeup Artist 

“We are used to using powder as a bronzer but this cream-gel formula is brilliant for a dewy fresh look. It’s perfect to use with a brush where the sun would naturally hit or kiss your face.” –  JIMENA GARCIA, Chanel Brow Artist

“I love the soft bronzy wash it gives to skin and how easy it is to use. I prefer using it with a dense Kabuki brush and buffing into hairline and cheekbones. I also love to mix a bit of a brighter cream blush color to create a sun kissed complexion.” –  NINA PARK, Makeup Artist


Received with enthusiasm from our Committee of Industry Experts, this bronzer was met with the equivalent of a full-house standing ovation. By unanimous decision, CHANEL’S Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream in Soleil Tan Deep Bronze is VIOLET CODE APPROVED and has earned a prominent place on THE SHELVES.


The VIOLET CODE is a process and set of standards by which VIOLET GREY’s Committee of Industry Experts separate hero products from the tens of thousands of options available to you on the market. The result is a curation that is truly the best in beauty from those who know best.
