Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Sea Star Bronzing Blush




i bought the star product of Estée Lauder's limited summer collection Bronze Goddess: the Sea Star Bronzing Blush.
it contains 12g and costs 41.95€ on parfumdreams.de
i was eagerly awaiting it, and now i can finally adore it in real life (i'm a sucker for such designs) ;)
it comes in a big shimmery orange/tan compact with a big mirror. the compact looks very summery, although not very sturdy.
the powder inside is just stunning - sooo beautiful! (so all the pic spam ;) ). it looks like a sea star on the beach sand. it has this beautiful warm pink sea star embossment with a lovely pink/gold shimmer overspray which lays on a wavy sand coloured bronzer/blush ground.
the different coloured parts are so big that you can actually use them separately with a small blush brush.
the sea star has a satin finish once the overspray came off. it's a medium peachy pink. the ground part is a peachy tan colour and applies as a satin finish also, but has more pearly/shimmery bits in it than the pink part. swirled together it's a warm pinky peach.
it has a very subtle cream scent. 
the texture of both parts is nicely pigmented, soft and silky. it blends out evenly and creates a nice golden sheen on my cheeks. i don't need to use an additional highlighter with it but still get a sunny, warm glow with a nice pinky-bronzey-peach flush. i love it! such a beautiful summer blusher.
it stayed all day long on my face, didn't move or fade.
i can't use it as a bronzer though, i find the tan shade too light and too shimmery to use on bigger areas. i like to put a little bit on my temples to get a warm glow, though.

if you want to have it, i think you really need to hurry before it's sold out.

and now to the picture spam!!!

  5. Oh, wie wunderschön! Ich liiiebe die EL-Verpackungen, die sind so schön opulent-altmodisch, nix moderner, klarer MAC-Stil o.ä. ;-D

    Der Blush selbst sieht auch zum Verlieben aus, den gucke ich mir mal näher an die Tage.
