Every Summer my most anticipated launch is the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess collection which always seems to deliver. On top of the limited edition fragrance which is my signature Summer scent, this year the line up included a gelee bronzer, a liquid illuminator and a multi-palette. Although I have my eye on most of the collection so far I have only picked up a couple of items which I will run you through today.
First off is the cult favourite and classical Bronze Goddess which is the scent of the Summer. A combination of coconut tanning oil, warm sandy beaches and sweet and juicy fruit – you can really make out the coconut milk, mandarin and vanilla notes. This alluring and seductive scent is pretty much Summer in a bottle and is so uplifting and mood-enhancing that you’ll find yourself day dreaming all day long. Although this isn’t the longest lasting fragrance out there, when layered on top of the shimmering body oil it does seem to prolong its life. The oil features the same scent and can be used on both the body and the hair to add a subtle, shimmery glow. This is absorbed into the skin so quickly and does not leave any greasy residue like most oils do. It contains the perfect amount of shimmer to enhance a tan and illuminate the skin leaving a silky smooth finish.
The multi-palette is one of the most beautiful palettes that I have ever owned including a illuminator, contour and a blush – everything you need to create a perfectly sculpted look. The powders are each made with a Prisma technology which is a mixture of powder, gel and liquid creating a smooth and glowy finish. The highlighter is a soft beige with a golden undertone which leaves a very subtle shimmer on the skin. The blush is a rosy pink with warm undertones with the tiniest amount of shimmer. The contour is a medium orange with a hint of brown and next to no shimmer. All the powders in this palette are soft, easy to blend and buildable. Perfect for someone new to sculpting or favouring more of a natural look.
Overall I have absolutely loved everything from the collection that I have tried and I cannot wait to get my hands on the liquid illuminator and gelee bronzer.
