Ah its the most wonderful time of the year when it comes to Estee Lauder cosmetics. Every year sees a new Bronze Goddess range of fragrance, cosmetics and bronzing products and this year I’ve got a couple of the must have items to show you.
Starting with the beautiful Batik Sun Eyeshadow palette £35.
I’ve reviewed loads of these Pure Colour palettes, the quality and pigment is always exceptional and my favourite is still the Blue Dahlia one, it’s just so perfect. This one is so summery though, it’s beautiful. At first glance I wasn’t sure what I’d do with that bright orange and the teal. I mean, look at the swatches. The bottom swatch is actually the Pure Colour Illuminating Powder Gelee which I’ll show you after.
I needn’t have worried all the shades are wearable when blended out. At first glance the left hand swatch was a bit disappointing, all shimmer no colour but actually this adds a later of fine iridescent sparkle to your finished look, it’s really subtle and very pretty. So here’s what I came up with.
I just added mascara and a touch of teal liner. If you look at the middle picture above, on the right eye you can see a few of those iridescent sparkles shining through as the sun hits them. This is a lovely Summer palette and the quality is exceptional.
So then we have the stunning Bronze Goddess Illuminating Powder Gelee £30.
A truly stunning looking product. I’ve discussed the formula before, it’s a liquid/gel/powder hybrid and applies like a dream.
In terms of colour, well you can scroll back up for the swatch but I don’t find this works too well on my very fair skin, it’s a little too golden, would look absolutely sublime on tanned or darker skins and I can’t fault the formula at all, it’s seriously a beautiful product. Whatever my thoughts on the colour, there’s no denying that glow!
The eyeshadow palette is available from http://www.esteelauder.co.uk/ but they have sold out of the Gelee, I have found some left on the Debenhams site but there is limited stock, it is also still in stock on the House of Fraser site. But move fast!
The rest of the range also looks beautiful. The nail varnish in Hot Spell has caught my eye, as have the Sheer RollerGloss!
Anything take your fancy? I really must get round to sniffing the perfume too!
