Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Cheek Glow Blush2

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Cheek Glow Blush ($28) is a newly launched cream blush that’s available for a limited time with the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer 2014 Collection.

I’m not a massive cream blush fan girl but I was tempted by this shade!

Let’s take a look!

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Cheek Glow Blush is a pretty warm coral with a subtle hint of luminous sheen. The formula is a thinner easy to apply cream blush that glides onto cheeks easily and blends out just as smoothly. I love the feel of this! It’s slick with a dewy finish that adds a touch of subtle warm coral to cheeks. It’s probably one of the easiest blending cream blushes I’ve come across recently. I’d liken the formula to the new Make Up For Ever HD Blush but it’s a little thinner and a lot smoother to apply.

I think the nice thing about the shade is it provides a touch of a luminous, sun kissed glow. It does apply sheer but does have fairly good build so it should work across a range of skin tones however, it might be a touch to light a shade for very deep tones. Unfortunately it does have a shorter wear on me so my skin swallows it up at around hour six and I notice a good deal of fading at
this point.

I do think it deserves to be mentioned that Bobbi’s new Hibiscus Pot Rouge is a bit more pigmented with a longer wear formula, cheaper price tag, and you do get more blush for your buck. This is $28 weighing in at .11 oz where as Bobbi’s Pot Rouge is $26 with a size of 0.13 oz. If I’m being honest, I’d recommend Bobbi’s version over Estee Lauder’s formula just because it has a stronger wear and the color is more pigment rich. Although Estee Lauder’s formula does prove the easier of the two to blend out as it has more of a slippery texture where as Bobbi’s has more of a thicker consistency that requires a tugging action to blend fully.

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Cheek Glow Blush sure is nice but I wish it was a touch more long wearing on me and dare I say just a little cheaper…!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    This reminds me of the limited edition cream blush they came out with a year or two ago for the mad men collection. The blush looks nice on you. Gives you a nice glow πŸ™‚

    I love this! Especially on you with the eyes and lips, looks great. Everytime I stop by the counter this product always catches my eye. Bought the new BB glow from Estee yesterday, this blush is gorgoeous.

    Hi, Muse!

    This has nothing to do with blush, but I have a question for you. My husband and I have been invited to a red carpet movie premiere. This is awesome, but I am pretty lazy about makeup. I only have a drugstore foundation because I usually just wear BB cream. I think I need a foundation that is longer lasting and more camera-ready in case I sneak into the background of a movie star’s picture. Since you know everything about makeup, I am falling at your feet and begging for your help. What should I wear on my face? (I have combo skin, btw.) SOS! Makeup 911!

    I really love all of items in this years Bronzed Goddess release. And very thankful for the heads up about Hibiscus.

  • Diane

    This blush is really pretty & I like the fact that it is easier to apply than hibiscus. Hibiscus did last a whole day on me without fading. However, because of the price point and the fact that I went bonkers buying so many different blushes this year I will sadly pass. I love the lipstick you are wearing. It looks so pretty on you. I am also going to try some Revlon lipsticks. I hope you are feeling better.

    • Isabella Muse

      aw thanks Diane I feel much better! I went a little nuts with blushes this season too! SO many to choose from!!!!!!! πŸ˜€

    I discovered what seems to be a forgotten gem. I don’t know if you’ve tried any of makeup forever’s products lately but if you haven’t they are worth a look. I was just sold on the new Makeup forever HD blush. I was a little skeptical at first but I’m glad I went for it. It retails for I think $25-$26 at Sephora. It feels like a cream in the pan but blends out on your skin like a powder. It has a soft, luminous and natural glow to it. I have oily skin and was concerned with the creamy texture migrating but it wears really quite well. I made it through an entire day at work without any fading that I noticed and no migration (8 hours). The color I purchased is 355 I believe it’s called fawn. I’m impressed enough that I’m going to be taking a hard look at some of their other products. Specifically the liquid eyeliners. A girl can’t have enough liner, can she?

    • Isabella Muse

      H Alison! Yeah, I tried and reviewed the Makeup For Ever HD Blushes already πŸ™‚ glad to hear you’re loving these!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Lisa Adams

    Sooo pretty! Have you checked out the MakeUp Forever HD creme blush? I checked them out in Sephora last week and left with #410 a coral/pink shade. It blends like a dream and lasts all day no budging!! Loving it!!

    Estee needs to update this packaging. I’m 52, and this looks like something my grandmother would have had LOL
