Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess summer collection

Hope you all had a lovely Easter break! I had a great time visiting the beach, sunbathing, BBQs and lots of chocolate and managed to get a nice tan thanks to 25 degrees in Southampton every day! I also tried out my lovely new products from the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess summer collection to enhance my natural tan after a hard day at the beach sunbathing!

Here is a brief intro from Estee Lauder about the collection. It’s written beautifully so I won’t bother trying to say it in my own words!

This summer, let Estée Lauder transport you to the Mediterranean with the latest seductive Bronze Goddess collection of makeup. Inspired by the hues and atmosphere of luxurious resorts on the Riviera, the collection invites you to sit poolside and take in the cool waters, warm sand beaches and sun’s luminous rays. Experience the casual luxury and seductive spirit of a goddess with shades that sparkle, shimmer and shine for eyes, lips and nails, while face and décolletage are transformed into golden, glowing perfection.



I thought I would write about my favourite two products from the collection, which are a must have if you are looking to update your summer make-up collection. Inspired by hues from the surf and sand, the NEW Limited Edition Bronze Goddess Island Oasis EyeShadow Palette (£31) of six irresistibly wearable shades brightens and defines eyes by day and transforms them by night. The eyeshadows’ delicate iridescent pigments allure with radiance and luminosity in warm sand shades of copper, bronze, gold and coral balanced by cool surf hues of turquoise, seashell pink, silver and seaweed. The pigment quality as you would expect from an Estee Lauder eyeshadow is excellent and lasts a long time plus you only need to apply a small amount so this palette will last ages. It’s also a great palette to take on holiday as you have a variety of colours to match many outfits throughout the holiday!


Inspired by long walks on the beach and treasured mementos from the sea, NEW Limited Edition Bronze Goddess Sea Star Bronzing Blush (£29) is a beautifully-crafted, feather-light illuminating blush that enhances any skin’s bronzed complexion with a perfectly warm sun-kissed glow. Featuring an artful starfish resting on a shimmering sand-inspired background, the silky, soft powder bronzing blush gives skin a naturally radiant, smooth, sun-kissed finish. Colour-true and with buildable coverage, this unique bronzing blush enhances your natural cheek colour with an added touch more summer radiance with every stroke.


This has been really popular amongst other bloggers and it doesn’t fail to disappoint. My favourite bronzer ever is the Soft Shimmer bronzer from last year’s collection, so I have worn the Bronzing Blush on top to give an extra shimmer/blush to my cheeks. The blush is quite intense so you don’t need to go overboard when applying, otherwise you will look very rosy! So if you have pale skin then I’d say this might be too heavy for you.

The products will be available in stores from 2nd May and I think they will be a real winner like all of Estee Lauders’ previous summer collections. Let me know what you think!

Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturising lip colour balm review!


How lovely has the sunny weather been recently? It’s definitely made me feel very summery, especially with my make-up choices! One of my favourite new summer products is from Clinique – their Chubby Stick Moisturising lip colour balm (£14) It consists of a highly moisturising formula combining a special blend of decadent butters, oils and antioxidants to help protect and pamper lips with immediate and lasting moisturisation. Infused with Shea Butter, Mango Seed Butter and Jojoba Seed Oil, it delivers a surge of moisture in a sleek stick leaving lips soft, supple and soothed. I love shade 7 – Super Strawberry, it tastes delicious and feels so smooth when you apply to your lips. It also gives your lips a lovely tint , so I have been using a lot thoughtout the day as it’s much lighter than lipstick. 


They are available to buy at Clinique counters very soon, from 15th April. If you buy one new lip product this summer then you must try this one.


Clinique also have teamed up with Selfridges Oxford Street to offer customers the chance to create their very own ‘Chubby Kiss’ in the exclusive Clinique ‘Chubby Photo Booth.’ Stationed at the Clinique counter, Selfridges Oxford Street the ‘Chubby Booth' will be available to every customer who takes advantage of a complimentary Clinique lip consultation on the 16th & 17th of April. Customers will be treated to a custom-fit consultation using the chubby stick of their choice before entering the ‘Chubby Photo Booth’ to pucker up and pout for the camera. The 4 passport sized photos develop in a matter of minutes and can be taken home on the day, encased in an exclusive Clinique picture wallet.


The fun continues following the event when each set of photos will be uploaded to the Clinique UK Facebook page and participants can log on to www.facebook.com/cliniqueuk to tag themselves in their very own Chubby picture.
Please come to Southampton one day – not all of us live in London!
