Estee Lauder Summer 2016 collections are always alluring, full of bronze, gold, and coral tones that help you achieve that perfect sun-kissed glow. This year, Estee Lauder has released a new limited edition version of their popular Bronze Goddess fragrance, as well as other limited edition pieces that you will want to pick up.
The Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche Skinscent (C$72 for 100ml) is a lightweight eau fraiche that smells like summer. It contains notes of Amber, Coconut Milk, Sandalwood, Vanilla, Vetiver, Myrrh, Juicy Mandarin, Sicilian Bergamot, Lemon, Pulpy Orange, Tiare Flower, Jasmine, Magnolia Petals, Orange Flower Buds, and Lavender. The main notes I can pick up are coconut milk, which is translated very freshly in this fragrance, as well as a light floral.
I am completely obsessed with this fragrance; the lightness is great for those hot summer months when you want a subtle scent without overpowering everyone around you. I’ve been basically spraying this on my clothes, in my room, and on me every since I got it. It reminds me a lot of a subtler Tom Ford Soleil Blanc, which is great if you love that scent but don’t want to shell out $250. In addition to the fragrance, it is also available as a Shimmering Body Oil Spray, a luxurious Whipped Body Crème, and a new Exfoliating Body Cleanser.
In addition, I received the Lip & Cheek Summer Glow in Peach Glow (C$38), a three-in-one glow pen in a soft coral peach shade. The duo-ended colour stick contains a solid cream on one end, which can be used as a cheek tint and lipstick, and a gloss on the other end for your lips. The solid cream side is a bit drying on its own for my lips, but I find it works very well as a cream cheek colour as the drier texture allows it to dry down completely. The gloss is very sheer, and has a milky finish on the lips, but it is also very light and non-sticky. The Lip & Cheek Summer Glow is available available in two other shades – Fuchsia Lights, a bright warm pink, and Sunburst, a nude gold.
Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess collection is available now at Sephora, the Bay, Holt Renfrew, online at www.esteelauder.ca and other places that carry Estee Lauder.
