Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
Every summer Estee Lauder has an updated Bronze Goddess range and this year is no different. The new Bronze Goddess Summer Glow Collection includes some gorgeous glowy colors and today I have an eyeshadow palette, a highlighter, and a gloss to share with you. To see some swatches, click.......
Estee Lauder Summer Glow Eyeshadow Palette
Estee Lauder Summer Glow Eyeshadow Palette ($55 CAD):
A six-color shadow palette, the Summer Glow Eyeshadow Palette is housed in a simple but elegant gold plastic compact. The lid has a transparent inlay embossed with a pretty polka dot pattern. The palette has a large mirror and a dual-ended sponge and brush applicator.

Included is a soft cream matte, a satin pale pink with a golden sheen, a shimmery cool-tone gold, a soft black-based blue shimmer, a soft golden brown, and a matte medium brown. All the shades are soft and creamy with a good pigmentation. The blue is a bit sheer but all the other shades applied with no problem. The color combination is very neutral and wearable and the inclusion of the blue is a great addition for summer.

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Glow Illuminator
Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Glow Illuminator ($36 CAD):
Housed in an adorable glass jar with a gold cap, this liquid illuminator dispenses from a glass dropper for easy control. This is a liquid shimmer that can be used directly over makeup as a highlight or mixed in with your foundation for an overall glow. The formulation is only sparsely packed with shimmers so it's not easy to over-apply. Because it's so sheer, though, I don't think it works well as a cheek highlight. It would be tricky to get a concentrated application on a small area. The liquid sets to a natural finish and with no noticeable texture.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Gloss in "Intense Spice"
Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Gloss in "Intense Spice" ($29 CAD):
A sheer peach champagne shimmer, Pure Color Envy Sculpting Gloss in "Intense Spice" has a lightweight and non-sticky formulation. The gloss comes in a simple black and clear tube and the doe-foot applicator is slightly pointed. The gloss has a really nice fruity scent and this particular shade is very easy to pull off, either on its own or paired on top of a lipstick,
