Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess 2015 Shimmering Nudes
It’s that time of year again – Bronze Goddess time. I always feel very summery when the classic Estee Lauder summer collection lands on my desk.
This year, we’re breaking it down into a beauty collection, and a fragrance collection, as there are three lovely products in the fragrance collection this time around.
It is absolutely heavenly – summer, captured in a bottle. This is hugely thanks to the core of the scent which blends Cocount Milk, Sandalwood and Vanilla. Vetiver and Myrrh deepen the sensuality of this lovely scent.
Other notes include Amber, mandarin, Sicilian Bermot, lemon and pulpy orange. Oh, and Tiare flower, jasmine, magnolia petal, orange flower buds, and lavender.
But, it is the coconut that has me off on a dream of white sand beaches, beautiful sunsets and pina coladas by the sea!
In addition to the iconic Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche Skinscent (£47), there is a gorgeous Shimmering Body Oil Spray (£29) – who doesn’t love a bit of shimmer in the summer?!
And there’s also a delicious Whipped Body Creme (£29) which contains a blend of natural oils, including olive fruit, grape seed, rice bran and apricot kernel.
Don’t go on holiday without these products! And if you aren’t going on holiday, use them, close your eyes, and make-believe!
This summer’s Bronze Goddess makeup collection is Shimmering Nudes, a gorgeous collection of powder and gelee bronzers, creamy highlighters, a shimmering eight-colour eye shadow palette and glossy lip and nail shades.
The Limited Edition Gelee Bronzer (£32) is universally flattering, easy to apply, and super sheer. It just adds a warm glow to the wearer. I love it. The Illuminating Powder Gelee (£32) is blendable, buildable, and illuminating, and combines the best of a subtle shimmering powder with the versatility of a gel. It’s so easy to use, just add subtle highlights on cheekbones, or along the bow of the upper lip, or use it with the Powder Bronzer (£32) to create a more contoured effect.
The All Over Illuminator (£33) is a handy stick of gorgeous, glowing, shimmering colour. Colourwise, there’s a lovely Shimmering Nudes Eyeshadow Palette, an online exclusive Shimmering Nudes Face & Eye Palette (£44), and a brilliantly innovative new Pure Color Gloss Pen (£17) in three shades – Nude Coral, Nude Pearl and Nude Bronze. This is a click up glossy wash, with a flow through brush – kind of looks more like a nail pen.
Oh, and there’s Pure Color Nail Lacquer (£14.50) in a lovely Nude Pearl shade. As ever, Bronze Goddess is the perfect summertime collection.
