Apologies because this post is a lot later than I planned it to be! The Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Collection is always a highlight of the year for me – usually launching around May time, it’s the first sign that Summer is officially here to me. Much like the Coke Truck advert on TV means Christmas is here… But it’s still Summer (and what an epic one we’ve had for 2018 so far) so time to take a little look (sniff?!) at the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess 2018 collection.
The Bronze Goddess fragrance is what’s at the heart of the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess collection every year and this is no different. I have the Estee Lauder Eau Fraiche Skinscent (there’s also an Eau De Parfum) which is the beautiful Summer fragrance in a light form, so you can spritz all over and have a ‘full body’ fragrance. Which is perfect for this time of year, a subtle all over scent rather than an intense burst of fragrance. The way I love to describe the Bronze Goddess scent is that it’s like suncream on a warm towel in the sun on holiday. Somehow it just captures that perfect holiday fragrance.
To compliment the Bronze Goddess fragrance – and one I’ve not tried before – is the Cooling Body Gelee. A refreshing alternative to a standard lotion, it smells just as good as the Bronze Goddess and gives a great and cooling way to layer the fragrance up for a more intense overall effect. Plus, cooling goodness for tackling heatwave Summer heat…not that the heatwave as such is still around, but it’s been pretty toasty!
Then the special cherry on top of the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess 2018 Collection is the palette. It’s actually been a couple of years since I’ve been as excited about one of the palettes in the collection as my heart-eyes have been ALL about the fragrance. But just look at this beauty!
A combination of eye shades covering the signature bronze/golden shades plus a pop of turquoise colour too. My all time favourite colour and one that is just the perfect Summer makeup addition. Then there are two cheek shades too. Perfect compact for travel/holidays or just a nice compact to keep things relatively minimal?!
Other products in the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess 2018 include (for the first time) a Summer Waves Salt Spray for Hair and a cooling body spray. Plus the annual bronzer launch and hair and body shimmer oil.
It’s a beautiful collection, smells gorgeous and one that year on year I’ll always be excited to see! The 2018 Bronze Goddess collection is no exception, it’s just a scent that makes me so happy – which to me is exactly what a perfume is about!
