Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess 2011.

I just got back from a wonderfully warm mini vacation in Florida. The sun. The sand. The surf. Ahhh... It is just what my mind needed during this long ongoing winter.

With my faux-tan out in full force, I was looking for complimentary products to make me look as sun kissed as possible.  I didn't have to search far as this years instalment of Bronze Goddess from Estée Lauder came along just at the perfect time.

First, can I just say that the Sea Star Bronzing Blush is collectible. It is b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l.  I am so drawn to these arts of makeup that I cannot even think about using them - so that is why I might have to pick up two of them! One to gaze upon and keep, and one to use, because it looks simply scrumptious, doesn't it?

The new Limited Edition Bronze Goddess Sea Star Bronzing Blush is a beautifully-crafted, feather-light illuminating blush that enhances any skin’s bronzed complexion with a perfectly warm sun-kissed glow. Featuring an artful starfish resting on a shimmering sand-inspired background, the silky, soft powder bronzing blush gives skin a naturally radiant, smooth, sun-kissed finish. Color-true and with buildable coverage, this unique bronzing blush enhances your natural cheek color with an added touch more summer radiance with every stroke. Easy to apply and blend, the blush can be worn alone, or over any Bronze Goddess bronzer and will not streak or settle into pores.

I must say though, that I have not been able to put down the eye palette. Inspired by hues from the surf and sand, the NEW, Limited Edition Bronze Goddess Island Oasis Eye shadow Palette of six irresistibly wearable shades brightens and defines eyes by day and transforms them by night. The eyeshadows’ delicate iridescent pigments allure with radiance and luminosity in warm sand shades of copper, bronze, gold and coral balanced by cool surf hues of turquoise, seashell pink, silver and seaweed.

Complementing this divine eyeshadow palette is a new, Limited Edition Bronze Goddess ShadowStick Duos in shades of warm Gold Bronze and cool Pink Teal. I am addicted to the Gold Bronze stick. These unique duos are the perfect, fun eye accessory for summer. Each pencil features two complementary shades in a water resistant, long wearing formula that is ideal for warm, summer months. Whether you desire a precise line or smoky look, these versatile duo pencils will be the first thing you put on in the morning and the last thing you take off at night.

Pure Color Gloss in heavenly shades of Blazing Coral Sparkle, Plum Divine Shimmer and NEW, Limited Edition Sun Burst Sparkle deliver long-lasting shine and maximum moisture. The non-tacky formula glides on lips smoothly, giving lips a sensual appearance that feels comfortable throughout the day. Estée Lauder’s Pure Color Crystal Lipstick in Tiramisu can be worn alone or layered with gloss for added dimension and depth to your lip look.

To complete the Mediterranean-inspired impression, add perfectly polished, shiny tips using Estée Lauder’s Pure Color Nail Lacquer in NEW, Limited Edition Shimmering Bronze.
