As promised, here's Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Powder Bronzer in Light, the bronzer that came with the GWP compact I showed you last week. I loved that this gift included three color products from the permanent collection, allowing me to test items that already had my interest and that can be found at the counters. I like the texture and finish of Estee Lauder bronzers, a satin smooth semi-matte with no shiny particles. It works better in summer, at least for me, because this is a powdery product (according to the Lauder website the bronzer has oil-control properties) that can look a bit dry at first, but it does settles nicely on the skin after 10 minutes or so and is very long lasting.
Bronze Goddess in Light is a bit too light or too warm for me. The arm swatch looks ok, but on my face there's an orange hue that is not the most flattering. In the past I've used Lauder Bronzers in Medium that were a better match for my coloring.
Estee Lauder Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Powder Bronzer- Light ($36) is available at the counters and online as well as from esteelauder.com. The full size product comes in a large round compact and is offered in four shades.
