Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Eyeshadow Palette Review

press-sampleThe Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Glow eyeshadow palette features peachy neutrals and an oceanic blue accented with metallics that truly deliver that summer goddess look.  This palette easily creates a daytime look using basic neutral shades of brown and beige, and eases effortlessly into evening with the more dramatic gleaming frosts and a deep sultry brown.

Packaged in a luxe gleaming gold compact that Estée Lauder has become so well-known for, this collection also features a dual ended applicator with both a sponge and brush tip for applying the shadow and blending.

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Lip And Cheek Summer Glow

press-sample I have a very unhealthy obsession with the new Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Lip and Cheek Summer Glow.  This perfectly portable cheek and lip color features a dual-ended design.  At one end is a sheer, glossy gloss.  At the other end is color that can function as either a lipstick or cheek color!  The bottom portion of container is clear, showing off the gloss color contained inside.  Each of these can be used standalone, or you can layer the products on the lips for a more dramatic look.

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Lip And Cheek Summer Glow Swatches: Sunburst, Fuchsia Lights, and Peach Glow

I’m smitten with the color Sunburst (at left) a barely-there sheer gold that is absolutely gorgeous. Also featured in this photo are Fuchsia Lights (center) a deep pink and Peach Glow (at right) a medium peach.  I adore all three!  They’re a great choice to add to your beach tote this summer!

Retail price is $34 per tube.

MAC Eye Shadow x 9 Palettes

MAC Eye Shadow x 9 Palettes

press-sampleThese days it seems like there are countless “mega” eye palettes available to purchase.  Don’t get me wrong, I adore a great large eye palette, but I know that large quantities of makeup aren’t a good fit for everyone.  If you’re a frequent traveler, you wouldn’t possibly want to carry them regularly on your travels.  If you live in a small space, you certainly don’t want to store them.  These new MAC Eye Shadow x 9 palettes are the perfect way to get the variety you crave in a small package.  Photographed above are two color combinations, Navy Times Nine (left) and Burgundy Times Nine (right).  Each features nine different shades of shadow in the same sized compact as a typical MAC x 4 palette.

Burgundy times nine features an array of colors from neutrals to warm reddish plums, it features different finishes from matte to frost to metallic. Navy times nine features soft grays, glistening charcoals, soft blue. Overall the look is cool and subdued.

These shades are actually quite neutral.  They lean rose, but for the most part contain shades of neutrals and browns.

Navy times nine features soft grays, glistening charcoals, and cool toned neutrals. Overall the look is cool and subdued.  The shades in Navy Times Nine from top left to bottom are: Silver Fog (a pale pearly white), Blonde Mink (a pale latte shade), Copperplate (a medium ashy neutral), JG Gray (gray/blue), Mulled Over (a matte medium gray), Cast Iron (a deep brownish gray), Cloudscape (an olive neutral), Club (a rusty neutral), and Black Tied (a deep soft black). This palette reminds me of a cloudy, stormy sky.
