Estee Lauder Bronze Sands Collection

This years summer collection from Estee Lauder is a slimline, mirrored eyeshadow compact that includes 5 ripple textured shades in their typical maze effect palette.


A great palette to take you from a glowing daytime look to shimmering dramatic evening look, compromising of a soft white gold and a slightly deeper antique gold, both of which would be good for highlighting or an all over wash of colour.
There is a much deeper copper bronze and plum brown to use for a more sultry smoky eye.
 The center colour is a vibrant turquoise which can be used to add a touch of detail or buff right over the lid for a bright summer eye.
 All the colours are metallic and are great if you want a high shine, illuminated look.

Due to the depth and vibrancy of colours these will look amazing on warm sunkissed and darker skin tones.
 There are mini applicators included in a variety of shapes and sizes, these are good for when your on the move but generally I would say use a regular makeup brush to get a more professionally blended look.
 To accompany this palette there is a Luminous liquid bronzer and a shimmering bronze highlight powder.

I would recommend a good base tan or a darker skin for these products to sit naturally on the skin.
The liquid is a copper gold similar to the copper in the shadow palette. On a light skin tone this could look orange.
 You can massage this onto bare skin or mix a small amount with your current foundation.
 The powder is slightly more peach but still with a high pigment. For a light skin tone buff it gently into the apples of the cheeks or sweep over the chest and shoulders.
 For a darker skin tone use it on the cheeks, body or as a highlight.


The five colour gelee powder eyeshadow palette is £35.00
The luminous liquid bronzer is £21.50
The soft shimmer bronzer is £27.00

This collection is available now from House of Fraser and nationwide from May.

  1. These are all such beautiful products! I love the idea of the liquid bronzer, but like you say, it could end up looking a bit orange on my very pale skin! x

  6. Wow those shadows are gorgeous. Can imagine they'd look stunning on mediterranean skin tones! I've just done a post on MUA eyeshadows, not quite as luxurious as Estee Lauder but still some nice shades available. Take a look if you're interested

  11. wowza those eyeshawdows are really pigmented and pretty.
    I tried a liquid bronzer before and I have to say it was quite tricky, I much prefer powder.

  17. I wanted this so bad! It was literally sold out at all the EL counters within two days. That brown color would look so awesome in the crease!

  21. Normally I don't particularly care for high end eyeshadow palettes because I think a lot of them lack pigment but this one looks gorgeous and a nice change from the standard blue, black, purple, gray tones!

  22. It's a beautiful palette, but I thought you both only used cruelty-free products. Estee Lauder recently started testing again. You're the reason I stopped using L'Oreal.
