Estée Lauder : Bronze Goddess Powder Bronzer in Light

This is one bronzer that seems to always get great reviews and I'd been on the hunt for a new bronzer so I decided to give Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess a try! As much as I love my cream Chanel bronzer, I had been missing a powder bronzer. I have previously used NARS Laguna Bronzer which is brilliant but I wanted something with less or no shimmer this time round.

Bronze Goddess comes in four shades Light, Medium, Medium Deep and Deep. I did try Medium at a counter which may have been okay but I decided to opt for Light because I could layer it up if I wanted to which for me is personally easier than trying to calm down any over bronzing with a darker shade!

Light was definitely the best shade for me - not too orangey and as you can see there isn't too much of a shimmer either! Bronze Goddess is also an oil-free powder so it's perfect for pretty much all skin-types - especially those with combination/oily skin as you don't get a shiny finish with this product and it also doesn't clog your pores.

I really do love this bronzer, it's become an every day product in my make-up collection! As you can see it gives my skin a nice natural glow without looking caked on and it's pretty good for contouring as well. It lasts a couple of hours before I need to top up again during the day, the little brush it comes with is good for when you're out and about but in the morning I apply using my Real Techniques Blush Brush.

If you haven't tried this bronzer then you really need to, it's so incredibly easy to apply. I picked up some tips from the lovely MUA at the Estée Lauder counter who said one of the easiest ways to contour is to try and draw a number three at the side of your face with your brush and then blend in. I have tried this myself and it does work, makes it a lot easier especially if you're new to contouring or not sure where to start with it!

What's your favourite bronzer?
