Want a tanned glow? Bronze Goddess by Estée Lauder

Glow this summer without the health risks!

Glow this summer without the health risks!

So, it’s that time of year to start baring it all. Or almost all! If you are lucky, you have beautiful and healthy looking dark skin, but for those of us who are paper white, we can use some help in that department. Tanning is out of the question for me, after having fried my skin under tanning booths for years, and consequently suffered an encounter with melanoma, so I have to resort to artificial tanning solutions. 

I was happy to receive, just in time for Hispanicize 2013 in Miami this April, Estée Lauder’s Bronze Goddess Summer 2013 collection!

Bronze Goddess 2013 Collection

The colors are bold. Maybe too bold for my “very pale skin,” so getting the “right tanned look” took a bit to master. If your skin is fair as mine is, be ready to start applying lightly, until you reach a tone you are happy with. The glimmer is just right for a sophisticated Caribbean beach resort look. (Not that I can afford the resort, just the look!)

Bronze Goddess Color Collection is bold and vibrant, as in dramatic. Shimmering aquatic hues, golden tones and bright pigmented pinks and corals are the signature colors.

The featured products I recommend are:


EyesPure Color Palette in Batik Sun

NEW Limited Edition Pure Color Five Color Eyeshadow Palette. SRP: $48 Batik Sun.

This palette comes with 5 shades: brilliant green, gold, and nude. They range from matte to shimmer; highlighting eyes to the max! This is definitely a summer look. Can be worn in the day time applying lightly, and at night-time more boldly.



Pure Color Sheer RollerGloss in Squeeze

NEW Limited Edition Pure Color Sheer RollerGloss. SRP: $18

It comes in a squeeze-tube roller ball applicator. It hydrates as it makes your lips glossy and fuller. It’s lightly scented and flavored! Passion Fruit or Guava. Not too sticky, and the colors are in my taste, universally flattering, especially over any lipstick of your choosing.

Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick in Fuchsia Fever

Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick in NEW Limited Edition. SRP: $25 in Solar Crush and Fuchsia Fever.

Pop of color for your lips with added glimmer. I personally love them. They are eye-catching, and VERY long-lasting.  I personally tone them down by only patting some color on my lips and then applying gloss. A little goes a long way. They are very pigmented!


Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelée in Heat Wave

NEW Limited Edition Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelée. SRP: $40 in Heat Wave,

It illuminates your complexion, with blendable and buildable coverage.  You can go from subtle glow to pearlized. Pretty light and soft. Great for touch-up if you decide to go out one night after work.

Bronze Goddess Luminous Liquid Bronzer

NEW Limited Edition Bronze Goddess Luminous Liquid Bronzer. SRP: $28.50

It comes in four shades, to highlight areas where you usually tan. It is soft and easy to apply. As the Powder Gelée, it is buildable, but much darker. This is the actual tan-effect.

It can be swept onto face, shoulders or décotage. Multipurpose!

Bronze Goddess Bronzers_Expires Dec 2014

NEW Bronze Goddess Powder Bronzer Collection SRP: $36

It is light and comfortable. The luminizing formula is pearlized reflecting light, to create a more radiant natural tanned glow.

All in all, I really like it. If you have darker skin, this will enhance your skin tone and really give you that amazing tanned and beautiful look. For light skin, go light on application!
