Having really been into anything that carries too much shimmer, but loving bronzer for as long as I can remember, it's always been one of my personal cosmetic-missions, to find the best current bronzer (mostly matte) on the market and this Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Powder Bronzer in Medium* has met my summer bronzing criteria perfectly.
As mentioned in the name, this bronzer is apart of the fabulous limited edition Bronze Goddess Collection ands sits in the range amongst two of my current favourite products; Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche Skinscent and Pure Colour Illuminating Gelée in Heatwave. Homed in a large panned tortoise shell compact, which is reminiscent of so many of my sunglasses so screams summer to me, this product is so lovely to use and I love how it warms my complexion up. I'm usually all about the contouring with bronzers similar to this, but I find that the tone of this bronzer works better on me to create warmth to all over the face, usually applied in a three motion through my temples, cheeks and jawline and then down the centre of my face focusing on my nose and top centre of my forehead.
The finish of the powder is what I would describe as mostly matte. It carries a small amount of shimmer, but nothing crazy and only enough to create a light reflecting finish, rather than a glitter ball one. I really like how soft it is to the touch and how it sits on the skin and find it doesn't apply too heavy which is great, although it is buildable should you want to add more colour to it.
Something I really like about the range, is that it is available in four shades; Light, Medium, Medium Deep and Deep, which is great as I often find brands that only offer one shade of bronzer don't always compliment all skin tones.
This limited edition Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Powder Bronzer costs £30 for 21g and is available along with the rest of the collection online and in Boots, Selfridges, House of Fraser and Debenhams.
