As soon as I featured the new formulation of the Soleil Tan de Chanel, now called Les Beiges Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream (review here), I started getting questions about how it compared to the new Fenty Cream bronzers. So I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to test out the new Cheeks Out collection.

Check out my Best Bronzers 2020 post to find the right one for you.

I am obsessed with bronzer and blusher. I think they are the products that have the quickest effect in making you look awake and alive, so I was so excited to try these out.

What is Fenty Beauty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Bronzer Like?

This formula is described as easy to blend, light as air and sweat resistant.

  • Light-as-air, non-greasy cream bronzer
  • Effortlessly melts into skin for a natural-looking bronze or soft contour
  • Delivers a natural-looking bronze
  • Warms up and softly defines the face
  • Melts into skin without disturbing makeup
  • Silky smooth texture that doesn’t feel sticky or greasy
  • Sweat- and water-resistant formula
  • Available in 7 shades for all skin tones including Amber (my fave Match Stix* contour shade)

Fenty Beauty Cream Bronzer Swatches

I have two of the seven shades to show you and I love them both. Amber is an amazing contour shade for my skin tone, and Butta Biscuit is a lovely warm bronzy shade.

Amber and Butta Biscuit:

The swatches:

The texture is beautiful. It is smooth and creamy and melts softly under the pressure of a finger or a brush. This is effortless sculpting. Here is Amber applied as a soft contour:

And her is Butta Biscuit applied on top as more of a warm, bronzy shade:

I absolutely love how these two look together and they give a gorgous juicy finish and don’t need setting. Yay.

What is Fenty Beauty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush Like?

The colour range in the Fenty Cream Blush collection is just gorgeous! I am obsessed. It shares the same creamy, easy to blend formula as the bronzer:

Fenty Cream Bronzer Vs Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Cream

Just quickly, I wanted to show you the new  formulation of Soleil Tan de Chanel next to the Fenty Cream Bronzers I have. This is Amber and Butta Biscuit on the left, and the Chanel is on the right.

As you can see, the Chanel is very similar in tone Butta Biscuit. The textures are different – Fenty feels creamier, whereas the Chanel has that kind of silicone slip that makes its matte pigments glide on. I think the Fenty gives a glossier finish which I really love, whereas Chanel is more velvety.  I suppose it depends on your preference … and your budget! It’s £28 versus £42.

Where to buy the Fenty Beauty Cheeks Out Freestyle Bronzer and Blush

The bronzers are £28 and the blushers are £19. You can buy them now at Harvey Nichols*.

  1. I was wondering if you could compare Fenty Amber to Illamsaqua Hollow. And which do you like better and why. Thank so much!

    1. I don’t think I have Hollow now – but I love the Fenty – there’s a stick version of the shade too xxx

      1. I should have asked if you think Amber is too shiny for a contour. I think that might be the main difference between it and Hollow. I think Hollow is more matte.

  2. I forgot to add that the blushes are all so beautiful, I could probably wear every single one too! I like that they’re buildable.

    I was a little disappointed in the bronzer shades since Butta is just too yellow for my tastes, but Amber does look like it would make a great contour for fair skin like mine. 🙂
