Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Glow Multi-Palette

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Glow Multi-Cheek Palette (2016) ($50.00 for 0.40 oz.) includes a highlighter, blush, and contour powder. There is little said about the formula or actual products at all, so I’m rating these as an average product of the type. The highlighter seems to be in the spirit of the brand’s Gelee formula, but the others, while similarly patterned, feel more like traditional powder products. The palette, on the whole, was disappointing and pretty dupable at that.

5 Shades of Rose Quartz

Not one but two shades were selected as “Color of the Year” by Pantone for 2016. Their decision of choosing two hues, a pastel blue and pink, commonly associated as gender-specific colors, was explained as, “In many parts of the world we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design. This more unilateral approach to color is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity, the consumer’s increased comfort with using color as a form of expression, a generation that has less concern about being typecast or judged and an open exchange of digital information that has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage.” That’s what I like to hear! Here are five existing shades that line-up with the concept of Rose Quartz, which is a “warmer embracing rose tone.”

  1. Buxom Feather Boa — A Warm Pink with a Matte finish.
  2. NYX French Kiss — A Warm Pink with a Natural finish.
  3. Estee Lauder Desirable — A Warm Pink with a Natural finish.
  4. Zoya Rue — A Neutral Pink with a Cream finish.
  5. Inglot #356 — A Warm Pink with a Matte finish.

5 Faves: Pearl Lipsticks for Fall 2015

If you prefer your lip color with a little shimmer, this top five might be right up your alley! :) Today’s picks feature my favorites for fall with a pearly twist.

  1. Estee Lauder Heavenly — a gold-shimmered coral

5 Faves: Satin Lipsticks for Fall 2015

I find that I actually prefer a satin finish to a matte one as a personal preference; satins have a little sheen and offer more comfort than your average matte, but they aren’t truly glossy either. Here are some of my favorites for fall!

  1. Urban Decay Backtalk — a muted rosy pink
  2. Maybelline Touch of Spice — a medium-dark rose
  3. NARS Vivien — a rosy berry
  4. Estee Lauder Unattainable — a reddish-berry pink
  5. Urban Decay 1993 — a muted brown
