|Bronze Goddess Summer Glow Multi Palette|
The new Estee Lauder Bronzed Goddess Summer Glow Collection makes this easy! The new cheek, face, eye and lip products are all made to help you achieve a healthy, sun-kissed flush. It seems like recently, every major makeup brand has come out with a 'bronze' line. Bobbi Brown, Tom Ford Soleil Collection, and now Lauder. Let's get into the makeup!
Summer Glow Multi-Palette, $50.00
A compact with three contouring powders: bronzer, illuminator and blush, to help you achieve radiant color. The formula: a tribrid of liquid, powder and gel that deliver smooth application and lots of color payoff. This is suitable for daytime! The colors are smooth and subtle. The bronzer is something I think is good for pale women (finally!) because it's not orange, like so many bronzers can be.
This I do not recommend. 2-1 products generally don't work out well. This one is not an exception. This is a product that contains a lip gloss on one side and a lipstick and cheek color on the other side. It comes in three colors: Fuchsia Lights, Peach Glow and Sunburst. I should be specific here, the shade and consistency that I did not care for was Fuchsia, which was not fuchsia but rather, watermelon in color. The lipstick end is way too slippery and runny. Perhaps it's the the emollients in the product, but it did not stay on the lips at all - and when combined with the gloss? Forget about it. I can see how this would be a better creme blush than lip product but I didn't try out that way. The other shade, Sunburst, is fine; it's certainly a pretty sheery, golden color (my favorite kind) and it leaves a pretty wash on the skin.

The description says this product is a gel, but when you first apply it, it doesn't look that way, it actually looks just like a liquid foundation does. However, when you blend the swatch out, you see that it really does have such a lightweight, gel-like consistency. It dries down to a dewy finish. For me, this makes me pictures Key Largo at sunset. Ha,ha,ha,ha! Why not?! Lauder says: "Universally flattering, creamy and weightless to the touch, gel bronzer glides onto the skin to create a luminous sun-kissed healthy glow. The balmy, sheer texture allows the natural skin tone to show through, and creates a subtle veil of healthy-looking, sun kissed color. The versatile and innovative gel formula easily blends into skin for even coverage and can be worn over foundation." Actually all true!
