When Estée Lauder release a new Bronze Goddess Collection, you know summer is on its way. Every year they seduce us with limited edition gems for a bronzed and glowy summer look and 2016 is no exception. There’s a Lip and Cheek Summer Glow, a Summer Glow Illuminator, a Gelee Bronzer, Bronze Goddess Powder Bronzer and the two stunning beauties that I’m showing you today, the limited edition Summer Glow Eyeshadow Palette* and the limited edition Summer Glow Multi-Palette*.
They both come in chic golden cases that I’m in love with, they are also quite durable and don’t get scratched easily which is always a plus.
The Estée Lauder Summer Glow Eyeshadow Palette* combines six shades with both, beautiful shimmer and soft matte finishes. It also has a big mirror and a dual-ended brush which I don’t really use. I love how fine these eyeshadows are, they blend like a dream and it’s basically, a day to night palette. I often find myself using the first and last two shades for an everyday look, applying the darkest shade as a liner. It’s sophisticated, simple but lovely on the eyes and then I’d add a bit of the turquoise shade for a transition to an evening look. At first, I wasn’t sure if I could use the two shades in the middle but I have to say, they are not too intense and they just complement the sunkissed look, define the eyes beautifully and wear really well. I don’t always prime my eyes when I use this palette because I was pleasantly surprised to see that the eyeshadows didn’t crease on me and stayed in place for a really long time.
You can find the Estée Lauder Summer Glow Eyeshadow Palette* in Norway for the price of 495 kr.
Palettes are just so handy and who doesn’t love a face multi-tasker? Estée Lauder Summer Glow Multi-Palette* contains a highlighter, a blush and a bronzer for a radiant, juicy and sunkissed look. The texture is really fine and soft, they’ve used Prisma Technology which means it’s a formula combining liquid, powder and gel. If you love the natural look or you’re a bit heavy-handed like me, you’re going to love this palette because it’s quite sheer. Now, I often love intense highlighters but I always appreciate it when products look soft and natural on my complexion. These shades blend in so well that they actually look like part of your skin and not like make-up. I was truly impressed by this because my cheeks are sometimes pretty dehydrated and blushes and bronzers may look a bit cakey but with this palette I don’t have to worry about it.
In addition to that, I have to say that I’ve tried using the highlighting and the bronzing shade (it’s a great matte crease shade) as eyeshadows and they look really pretty. That means that if I’m in a rush, I can use just this palette for my face and still look presentable.
I think all three shades are going to be flattering on many skin tones, the texture is lovely, smooth and soft and brings a natural flush of colour for a fresh look.
Estée Lauder Summer Glow Multi-Palette* can be found in Norway at the price of 515 kr.
Both of these products are ophthalmologist-tested and fragrance-free.
I love Estée Lauder Summer Glow Eyeshadow Palette*, the shades and the textures of the eyeshadows but I simply adore Estée Lauder Summer Glow Multi-Palette* and I’m quite sad it’s a limited edition. There are so many similar palettes out there at the moment but what makes this one different is the soft and subtle look that it gives rather than being too intense and harsh. And it just looks effortlessly pretty.
