Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Collection

Well this is awkward! Yesterday it was glorious sunshine here however today it’s absolutely tipping it down. I assumed it would be a sunny bright day again and I would be inspired to write about the latest Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess collection. Never mind, I’m still covering myself in the fabulous warming coconut scent regardless.

 For the body there is the huge pot of whipped body crème to hydrate sun-scorched skin. Although it’s a cream it’s actually really lightweight and not at all greasy. It also leaves a nice satin sheen to the skin, which also enhances the tones of the skin.

 We also have the Bronze Goddess eau Fraiche Skinscent. It’s the classic scent with zesty top notes of Bergamot and mandarin infused with a warming shot of ginger. Coconut is obviously the stand out note but there’s also a floral undertone of Jasmine with vanilla and amber also. Bronze Goddess is one of those fragrances that you can detect a mile off when someone passes you in the street. It’s a real summertime winner.

 If you’re off to a warmer climate this year then the Bronze goddess shimmering oil spray is a great all rounder to pack. Not only does the oil nourish the skin but it also provides radiance to a sun exposed skin through it’s smattering of gold shimmer.
 Being oil makes it also good to massage into the cuticles or frizzy ends!

The makeup....

 The summer look palette is a newbie for this year. In a pleasingly flat, mirrored compact, which contains a trio of eye shadows and blush set out in a geometric pattern.
 Shades each have a fine shimmer pigment so not one for the matte lovers. The highlight shade is a warming pink and the smoke shade is a minky brown with golden shimmer. There is also a slither of aqua blue too which is quite nice used as a liner along the lash line or swept boldly under the lower lashes.

 Pigment is not overly strong and the lightest shade was slightly crumbly but all in all a nice palette that would be suitable for all skin tones.

 The blush in the palette is slightly more matte and provides a punchy peach flush. Very pretty on the apples of the cheeks.

We also have the new limited edition Illuminating powder gelée. It’s an all over body highlighter. It applies with instant gold foil effect but can be buffed down if you prefer a slightly subtler highlighter. This would look insanely beautiful on a deeper skin tone.


 You may also notice the gorgeous palm wash bag that the collection was delivered to us in. 

It's from Elizabeth Scarlett and you can purchase that here.
