Estée Lauder · Bronze Goddess 2018 Collection

 

Estée Lauder’s Bronze Goddess 2018 Collection (limited edition) hits every single one of my buttons; for starters, there’s ‘bronze’ and all the summertime heat that the name implies, then there’s ‘goddess’ — self-explanatory, am I right?

The second half of my NARS x Erdem Strange Flowers Collection review centres around the face. Having produced some of the beauty world’s most iconic blushes (Orgasm, Sin, Deep Throat), I was curious to see how the two shades here would stack up — I won’t spoil it, so I guess you’ll just have to read on to learn — but the piece I was most excited about was the highlighting pencil.
