Estee Lauder have launched two Limited Edition Bronzing Products as part of the Bronze Goddess 2010 Summer collection.
There’s a Summer Bronzing Gel (a light tinted gel) and a Exotic Bronze Blush which is somewhere between the two!
The bronzing gel is a lighweight, sheer formula that gives a warm, non streaky finish. I can second this – I fear tanning products very much, but this was easy peasy to use and gives a natural finish (pics later on in the post!).
It also feels very hydrating – I have dry patches on my skin at the moment and this didn’t cling at all.
In the skin:
Blends in easily and can be mixed with foundation and so on. This is the first bronzing tint product I’ve used that I’ve felt has looked natural enough to be used day to day (like I said before….I don’t do tangerine).
After – it adds a subtle warmth:
The result is subtle, not orange. Its a bit more obvious in real life but once again, the word is natural:
This is the bronze blush – it combines two shades, a light bronze and a coral which is the blush. It can be used all over and has a nifty zebra print.
The texture felt a little hard when I brushed the surface, but then when I used a brush, I figured it prevented me from picking up too much product.
I’ve had soft, super pigmented bronzers before and the result is always a disaster, especially when applying it in a rush so I like that this bronzer-blush is idiot proof.
Its also quite a large pan so will last for a while.
Its very natural on me – on dark skinned ladies this may be more of a blush-highlighter than a true bronzer.
The bronzing gel is £24 and the bronzer blush is £26. Both are LE.
