REVIEW: Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Range

I was recently invited to lunch with Estee Lauder to chat about their new Bronze Goddess range over some cocktails and nibbles (I'm sure you can imagine my squeal when the invite landed in my inbox).

Estee Lauder were one of my first 'premium' beauty brand splurges - I treated myself to their Crystal Baby lipstick when I was back in 6th form and fell in love with the range (it's still one of my favourite lipsticks to date)!

Their Bronze Goddess fragrance (the staple of the range) is simply summer in a bottle, but I thought I'd give an over-view of what else the range holds too...

The collection is a big'un and consists of a lot of products, all beautiful and perfect for summer in their own right.  Firstly, the fragranced products - the Shimmer Oil, Body Splash & Whipped Body Creme all feature the gorgeous summer scent of coconut, vanilla and warm amber; this stuff smells like holidays.

New makeup products consist of a Cheek Glow (a universally flattering sun-kissed shade), Liquid & Powder Bronzer, a Nudes Eyeshadow Palette (consisting of 5 matte nude shades & three shimmers), 2 new Pure Colour LipShine's in Mandarin (a bright orange) and Luscious Plum as well as 6 new Nail Lacquers.

My favourites are the Shimmering Body Oil which adds the most delicate sparkle and sheen to my legs & arms, whilst also making me smell sweet.  The palest nail polish (aptly named Bare) has become my go to nude nail shade and the Mandarin LipShine adds a lovely pop of colour to my lips.

The range is all limited edition and available in stores on Estee Lauder counters now, ranging from £14.50 to £50.

What do you most like the look of?  Will you be picking any of it up?

  10. I picked up Bronze Goddess the other week and am already around 1/10 through, it's just incredible and smells like cocktails! The counter lady tried the oil on my hand to, it makes the scent last longer and adds such a gorgeous glow, can imagine it looking gorgeous on the collarbones on holiday! Ahhh (:
