I love summer collections. It’s something about the bronze combined with blues and teals that just strike me as gorgeous. Estee Lauder always does the Bronze Goddess line perfectly, and this year is no exception. Check out the gorgeous compact with the starfish shape! Fun!
This summer, let Estée Lauder transport you to the Mediterranean with the latest Bronze Goddess collection of seductive makeup. Inspired by the hues and atmosphere of luxurious resorts on the Rivieria, the collection invites you to sit poolside and take in the cool waters, warm sand beaches and sun’s luminous rays. Experience the casual luxury and seductive spirit of a Goddess with shades that sparkle, shimmer and shine for eyes, lips and nails, while face and décolletage are transformed into golden, glowing perfection.
The Island Oasis Eyeshadow Palette contains six shades of eyeshadow for all skin tones including warm sand shades of copper, bronze, gold and coral balanced by cool surf hues of turquoise, seashell pink, silver and seaweed. Complementing the palette are NEW, Limited Edition Bronze Goddess ShadowStick Duos in shades of warm Gold Bronze and cool Pink Teal. These unique duos are the perfect, fun eye accessory for summer. Each pencil features two complementary shades in a water resistant, longwearing formula that is ideal for warm, summer months. Great for creating a dramatic smoky eye or gentle lines to compliment the shadows.
While the eyes allure, lips shine and seduce for summer, capturing the season’s lusciousness in beautiful, high shine, sparklingly sheer colors. Estée Lauder’s Pure Color Gloss in heavenly shades of Blazing Coral Sparkle, Plum Divine Shimmer and NEW, Limited Edition Sun Burst Sparkle deliver long-lasting shine and maximum moisture. The non-tacky formula glides on lips smoothly, giving lips a sensual appearance that feels comfortable throughout the day. Estée Lauder’s Pure Color Crystal Lipstick in Tiramisu can be worn alone or layered with gloss for added dimension and depth to your lip look.
The NEW, Limited Edition Bronze Goddess Sea Star Bronzing Blush is a beautifully-crafted, feather-light illuminating blush that enhances any skin’s bronzed complexion with a perfectly warm sun-kissed glow. Featuring an artful starfish resting on a shimmering sand-inspired background, the silky, soft powder bronzing blush gives skin a naturally radiant, smooth, sun-kissed finish. Color-true and with buildable coverage, this unique bronzing blush enhances your natural cheek color with an added touch more summer radiance with every stroke. Easy to apply and blend, the blush can be worn alone, or over any Bronze Goddess bronzer and will not streak or settle into pores.
I’m also excited to try the new limited edition fragrance, Bronze Goddess Soleil. It looks like the sandalwood note has been taken out, which works for me, as I couldn’t deal with it. It’s considered Solar Citrus Floral fragrance and blends sparkling citrus essences with a fresh and luxuriously carefree floral aura and an unexpected, yet sensuously feminine solar facet.
