Estee Lauder’s new Bronze Goddess Summer Glow 2016 collection was named so for a reason. As thousands of girls and women hit the gyms this spring to get their bodies in shape for the beach, some of our favorite brands are releasing their summer makeup collections that are meant to turn your body into a silky chocolate souffle that is about to melt down under the sun! Excited? So are we, especially since we can purchase our favorite bronzing products from Estee Lauder at Nordstrom and Sephora starting with April 2016!
The new Bronze Goddess collection has only one mission this year, to bronze and tan your body, while making it look natural. Usually, a few hours after you surrender your body to the burning sun, your skin starts glowing as if it actually bears a piece of that sunshine inside. Bronze Goddess products have been created with that special Glow effect.
Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Gelee Bronzer ($32.00) (Limited Edition)
Experts at Estee Lauder definitely excel in the art of naming. As you might have guessed, the Bronze Goddess bronzer has a gelee texture, which gives that extra glow when applied in a thin layer. The bronzer is a limited-edition product and comes only in one color.
Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Powder Bronzer ($37.00)
If you’re not a fan of the gelee bronzer, give the powder alternative a try. The powder bronzer comes in the Light, Medium, Medium Deep, and simply Deep, although the difference might not be instantly obvious to the naked eye.
Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Glow Illuminator ($32.00) (Limited Edition)
This is another limited-edition product that will light up your skin with natural-looking tan. The liquid illuminator comes only in one color but works well with different skin types and tones.
Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Glow Lip & Cheek Color ($34.00) (Limited Edition)
A 2-in-1 solution, combining lipstick and lip gloss of the same shade. You can use them together and separately.
• Fuchsia Lights
• Peach Glow
Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Glow Eyeshadow Palette ($50.00) (Limited Edition)
The brand brings in 6 shades of glowy eyeshadow, including the season’s popular – turquoise – to remind you of the clear waters awaiting you this summer.
Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Glow Multi-Palette ($50.00) (Limited Edition)
This is a useful trio consisting of an illuminator, blush and bronzer, an easy 3-step skin makeup that was made with Prisma Technology, a mix of hybrid liquid, gelee and powder.
Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Glow Shimmering Body Oil Spray ($42.00)
This glittery body oil spray is a nice addition to your makeup bag. As you start exposing more skin in summer, make sure to add the actual glow particles, locked in this spray.
Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Glow Whipped Body Crème ($45.00)
Not really a whipped cream, but a moisturizing cream with the scent of the Bronze Goddess, also used in the fragrance mist below.
Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Glow Exfoliating Body Cleanser ($42.00)
A tap into skincare, the collection includes a body cleanser for exfoliating. We all crave for a nice tan, but it’s still makeup… and makeup should be cleaned… always.
Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche Skinscent ($65.00)
A new way of naming the fragrance mist? Well, we hope the new skinscent offers a new wave of sensations and a final note to your summer composition.
The collection is by far not the most affordable choice in the market, but considering that you’ll be using tan-like makeup products for only a few months and usually from the same line (or at least a single product per purpose), the purchase might prove more than worthy.
