Review: Estée Lauder's Bronze Goddess Bronzer

Well hello to you my reader chums! Today I've got a mid week review for you all on a bronzer I'm really enjoying at the moment. On the way back from my holiday last month, I had a look in duty free and with my left over euros made a cheeky splurge on the 'Bronze goddess' bronzer. I've heard a few amazing things about this bronzer and as contouring is one of my favourite makeup steps, I thought I'd treat myself to it.

I picked up the lightest shade, 01 light.

Size: The size of the compact is very large which has its pros and cons. The pros being to achieve an overall bronzed look, you could easily use a huge powder brush, to lightly dust it all over the skin. Also, as it's such a big compact, there's a lot of product, which will last for a very long time. However the only con being it's not the most ideal product to travel with.
Colour: For me this bronzer is the perfect contouring shade. With some bronzers I find they have quite orange under tones, however this isn't the case for 'Bronze goddess'. As it's a warm toned bronzer, it brings a lot of warmth and definition when applied to the skin. Using a couple of layers, building up the bronzer, it leaves a gorgeous sun kissed contour with a muted highlight that I love.

Pigmentation: As I said, the bronzer is one which can be built up meaning if you'd prefer a natural bronze glow, a swipe of this will give you that look or for full on contoured cheekbones, the bronzer can achieve this in a few layers. Due to the slight shimmer running through, not only does it shape the face, it brings a lovely subtle highlight. I love how even though it has a indefinite glow, it's very matte, perfect for a chiseled effect.

Lasting power: I'm always on the hunt for long lasting products as there's nothing worst than your makeup coming off by the end of the day. I can happily say the 'bronze goddess' bronzer is long wearing, where even after a lengthy period, that contour is still visible.


Overall I can simply say I adore this product. It's such a luxurious treat when I add it into my makeup look, especially on days where I'm not feeling too good, it'll give my skin that lovely warmth. With all the aspects taken into a count, it's now up there with my top bronzers. Even though it's a tad pricier than other bronzers I own, the quality and size make it truly worth the money.

I hope you enjoyed this review. Have you tried the 'Bronze goddess' bronzer?
