Sunny days, sultry hot nights…that is the inspiration of this season’s Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Glow Collection. Every year, this collection is like seeing the first robin of spring signaling winter is over. When I see the Bronze Goddess Collection on counter, I know it’s time for spring break!
The 2016 Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Glow Collection includes:
Limited Edition Summer Glow Eyeshadow Palette, $50
Limited Edition Summer Glow Multi-Palette, $50
Limited Edition Summer Glow Illuminator, $32
Limited Edition Lip and Cheek Summer Glow in three shades: Fuchsia Lights, Peach Glow and Sunburst, $34
Limited Edition Gelée Bronzer, $32
Limited Edition Bronze Goddess Travel Spray, $58
Although you can always count on the Bronze Goddess Collection to deliver classic summer makeup staples, this year’s new products deliver multitasking benefits with pops of color. Last year, the Eyeshadow Palette concentrated on neutrals, and while pretty, I missed the pop of color. This year’s version has beautiful sunlit colors–I love the turquoise shade smudged along the lash line, as well as matte and shimmer finishes. The pigmentation and color payoff are good, although better in the darker shades.
The Summer Glow Multi-Palette is a must-have! Three beautiful shades that can be used to blush, highlight and contour. I love the textured tablets, and the powder has a nice, glowy (not sparkly, not glittery) finish. The colors are universally flattering, although best for light to medium complexions. Love this!
Also new this year is the Summer Glow Illuminator; a luminous liquid gold highlighter. This has a dropper applicator, which I like because if you want to mix a drop in your foundation, bb or moisturizer (face or body), you can. The Summer Glow Illuminator has a shimmery finish, pretty on shoulders, face, décolletage or anywhere you want.
The Lip and Cheek Summer Glow are your summer multi-taskers. On one end, a Pure Color Lip Gloss (which I love because this formula isn’t sticky!), on the other end, a gorgeous solid cheek color. Pop one in your crossbody bag and you’re set!
Finally, how often have you wished you could take that Bronze Goddess Eau Fraîche scent with you? Right?? Me too. We have our wish, because this year, Estee Lauder has released a refillable Travel Spray, which includes three refills! Yes, yes and yes!
The limited-edition Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Glow Collection always sells out quickly, so if you see something you want, you definitely can’t wait. You can find the collection in department stores, including Nordstrom and on esteelauder.com. What will you be wearing this summer?
