Contrary to what the weather says Spring is here and the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Look Palette reminded me it was on the way this morning. Every year, like clockwork, the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Collection arrives with some new and interesting makeup to get us in the mood for the warmer weather ahead.
Although, some see Estee Lauder as their grandmother’s makeup since the packaging as exactly evolved in the last hundred years of our makeup lives, I do admit to having some love for the brand since their color cosmetics generally deliver excellent results.
One of my favorite collections is without a doubt the Bronze Goddess Collection since it generally means we’ll get some our hands on the gorgeous Bronze Goddess Fragrance along with a color story. I’m a pretty major fan of the fragrance so, this is the time of year I can replenish my overly used and almost gone bottle.
This year Estee Lauder brings us a new edition of the their traditional Bronze Goddess Eyeshadow Palette in the form of the Bronze Goddess Summer Look Palette ($55) which pairs up six eyeshadows. It’s a pretty typical release for the brand since they keep to the aqua and bronze theme with each and every eyeshadow releases in this collection but this palette contains a highlighter as well as a blush this time around. I happen to hoard away my Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Glow Multi-Palette so, I have hopes the blush in this palette is as lovely.
Along with this palette, there’s also a new Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Illuminating Powder Gelée ($47) in a brassy bronze gold shade that gives skin a soft sheen of highlighter as well as a new Bronze Goddess Blooming Lip Balm ($28) that reacts with body chemistry to create the a customized orange hue on lips.
As of now these are the only things currently available in the collection but as we grow nearer to the end of the month I’m sure the fragrance(s) will pop up as well.
