HUGE Case impractical
Date:January 20, 2012
Best For color, home use
First, let me say I love this bronzer...this was my 3rd replacement. The new case is so huge, it doesn't fit in my purse make-up case so I can't carry it easily with me. 3+ inches in diameter. It has nowhere to store the brush except right on top of the powder. EL should re-design this fast! I was sorry to return it but it was just to big and awkward.
This is a great bronzer. It goes on nicely, feels good on your skin, not too heavy. Only issue is the first time I wore it I happened to be going to a concert at a local bar. They had black light above the bar. My son looked and me and said what have you got on your face, you look like a Halloween ghost. Avoid black light if you're wearing the product.
Best For Healthy Glow, Self Tanning, All Skin Tones
I have been using Bronze Goddess for 5+ years. After using this bronzer for the first time I cannot and will not use any other make up. I use Bronze Goddess year round. I am able to adjust the amount needed to fit my current skin tone. I no longer wear streaky and flaky foundation. This bronzer does it all. I am constantly receiving compliments on my skin tone and being asked if I just got back from a vacation. Bronze Goddess goes on quick and easy with a completely natural look.I apply Bronze Goddess in the morning and again for a touch up in the afternoon and even with the repeated applications throughout the day, one compact lasts me six months. You will never find a better bronzer. I would highly recommend trying Bronze Goddess even if you are happy with your current bronzer. You do not want to miss out on this amazing product!
Being very, very fair year round, I have always avoided bronzers, but this one is totally different! I recieved this in a gift set, and when I finally tried it, after reading some bronzer tips for using it to give your face deapth and shape, as opposed to major color, I was thoroughly impressed. With a light hand and a good brush, the color goes very sheer, but can be built up easily for those who want more color. Another thing to love, it's a bronzer that is not overfull with glittery bits, rather it is just a simple wash of color.
Best For contouring, adding a bronzy sun-kissed glow, as a bronzy eye shadow
I am a fair-skinned blonde w/ a cool pink undertone to my skin & bright blue eyes. I like that this can be applied in steps, building coverage slowly. Bronzing powders are a dime a dozen, some good, some bad. I've tried a few other brands. This is decent. Some other bronzers, unlike this one, brush on with a shout- not a whisper. This whispers! Not particularly long-wearing, I have to touch this up 2-3 times during my workday to prevent going back to having vampire skin. I have often used this as a contour powder instead, and prefer that for my particular face.which is soft in feature & baby-like despite my age. I sweep against my high forehead & into the hairline, on either side of the nose, across the outer end of my eye through to the temple hairline, and under the cheekbones. I just make sure to looks in a magnifying mirror & soften with a makeup sponge, if needed. Since it's almost-matte, it looks more natural than the bronzers with shimmer. This would probably be too light for anyone with medium-timed skin or darker.
Bronze Goddess always looks natural - never cakes or streaks or turns that awful orange-y color! I love the sun but work full-time, so it is hard to keep the tan on my face even. The Bronze Goddess, with a few swipes of the brush, does it for me every day of the week - I LOVE it!!
I buy this for my mother and she looks amazing in it. She uses the brush that's included and I can't believe how much more beautiful she looks each time I see her (I've also got her on some Re Nutriv too)!
I am 64 but have good skin because I have used Estee Lauder products all my life. I had stopped buying bronzers since most look fake on older skin. This product just gives a healthy glow and used over Spotlight is getting me a lot of compliments. Thank you for another does what it say's product.
Best For countouring/shading, making you look stunning of course!
The perfect bronzer! Not sparkly, not orange, not muddy, just divine! It blends easily even on my fair skin. I use it for shading/contouring like the makeup artists do--under the cheekbones and jawline, and around the hairline & temples. Adds soft definition to highlight your bone structure & adds a little touch of the sun. And can we talk about the brush? I am obsessed! The only "freebie with product" brush I would actually buy on its own! Use the narrow side for your countouring and the broad side for blending or applying the color to larger areas like apples of cheeks or chest. This is truly a product I cannot live without!
This goes on light so the color can be layered depending on how bronze you want to go. I keep it sheer since I'm fair and appreciate being able to add a "glow" to my face so I don't look so flat and paste-y. It works well under blush or alone. The brush is better than average and I keep the plastic protector on top of the powder so the brush doesn't touch it when it's being stored. I do wish EL would introduce more shades - perhaps something a bit lighter and more yellow-based for those of us who are very fair. Also, even though this is listed as matte, there are noticeable sparkles in the powder. I do not notice it on my face, though.
Having whiter-than-white skin, I've tended to avoid blush simply because any little mistake is magnified, and I'm not the most gifted when it comes to applying makeup. Finally I got a sample of this with a gift with purchase and I'm so glad I did. It gives my skin a soft, healthy, NATURAL glow, and if I can apply it and make it look decent, that must mean it's fool-proof, even with the tiny brush that came with the compact.
Just a few swipes makes my face look so fresh and healthy, even under the unflattering glare of fluorescent lights at work. I wonder how I lived without it for so many years!
I am very fair with natural strawberry blonde hair and completely blonde (colorless!) eyebrows. I use a small brush to put Bronze Goddess Soft Matte Bronzer on my eyebrows to give them some color and it works great and looks natural.
I'm a Scandinavian with pretty light skin, so I ordered the bronzer to get a healthy glowing look before I get some sun in Palm Beach. This product made my day, I immediately looked naturally refreshed going to lunch with my resident friends. I just wish there was a place to keep the brush other than on top of the product!
