    I’m in love with that palette!!

  2. Emmaline

    I love summer collections. I love all the bronzes, golds , corals, etc.

    I am surprised they released the last photo, her knee looks bumpy, her neck looks strained, plus there is a garden hose in the background.

  3. melissa k

    thanks christine =)

  4. Wow – the perfume sounds divine! I have my eye out for the blush!

  5. I am so tempted to buy the blush.

  6. Hilary♥

    OMG I need to have that palette and brozer!! They look absolutely stunning! Can’t wait to see the whole collection now =) AWESOME!

  7. The eyeshadow palette looks gorgeous. It will be interesting to see how pigmented the shades are. The bronzer compact is adorable!

  8. Chelle

    lol @ the “To The Beach” knock-off.

  9. S

    Is the Bronze Goddess Soleil really only $19? Last yrs version was $34 I think!

  10. Iliana

    Lovely products but the model’s cheeks look overly bronzed and fake. :( well at least on my screen. I’m looking forward to checking this out though!

  11. Heather

    I’m curious how the Tiramisu color will look for the lipstick!

  12. Avatar of Jill AnGeLwInGz

    So happy they’re bringing back the Bronze Goddess perfume. It smells like the beach and coconuts. It’s the only EL frgrance that doesn’t smell like old ladies!

  13. Bianca

    i’m very interested in the blush! It kinda reminds me of MAC to the beach!

  14. despoina1976

    awwwwwwwwwwww the powder is sooooo beautiful!!!!
    but I think that what is even more beautiful is the picture of this model, so summery, so holiday-ish… :D :D :D I miss summer! :))

  16. brilliant..i love estee lauder products..and i will love to try this collection too.

  17. Yaz

    EL is one of my favorite brands and their summer collections are always a must to me! I always get a little new something and go back to what I got the previous years to rock on the summer. I LOVE THIS!!

  18. Ohh! The bronzer looks way too cute! Definitely looking forward to seeing real life pictures!

  19. Annick

    Am I seeing hair under the model’s armpits?

  20. Grace

    OOOOO! i am feeling that sea star bronzing blush! really cute :]

  21. Farida

    Ooh, I want the blush…so pretty!!!

  22. Kelly C.

    Ugh, so unfair! This collection makes me want it to be summer already so I can break out my bronzer and Bronze Goddess perfume. I also really love the eyeshadow palette (and that starfish bronzer); this just proves to me I need to move to Hawaii so I can wear these colors all the time!

    • Kelly C.

      I would also like to add: The non-airbrushed photos are amazing! She looks so beautiful- and REAL. I wish more ads were left ‘perfect’ and more natural. I think she looks so much better, and the products better represented, without all the manipulation.

  23. Marie

    The eyeshadow palette looks way way wwwaaaayyy too similar to the one they released 2 years ago!

  24. Do you know if you will be getting the chance to review some of these products?
    I don’t know why, but I’m really excited about this haha

  25. I really want the sea star blush, but other than that I’ll pass.

  26. Avatar of Marta Marta

    I’m loving the eye palette and the fragrance description really made me to look forward to smell!

    By the way I love the fact that the last two photos weren’t photoshoped!

  27. Avatar of Mariela Lola

    The blush looks very similar in color to last year exotic bronzing blush

  28. muu

    i like the last photo, she looks like a human…

  29. I don’t know that I like the look of the blue in that palette.

  30. I would love to try the blush and the palette… Looks so pretty… I wonder if it would look great on me…hmmmmm?????

  31. Naheeda

    Love the palette!!

  32. Mamavalveeta03

    The “Sea Star Bronzing blush” is so cute! As is Hilary Rhoda’s bathing suit. All I can say is: “Thank God it’s not Elizabeth Hurley and her Ta-Ta’s!!! lol

  33. so pretty! I must have the palette and the blush

  34. Avatar of Crystal Crystal

    Who do they think they are fooling? This is almost the exact same palette from last year. BUT I am a sucker for bronzers, so they will be making their money from me just a tad. :) Also curious to smell Soleil fragrance. I adore Bronze Goddess perfume…used in moderation of course!

    • Marie

      Actually, it was the palette from 2 years ago. But yeah I totally agree with you. Save for one color, it’s almost a replica!
      It’s still a nice product though for those who don’t own the one from 2009.

  35. Avatar of Karen Karen

    Bronze Goddess is my all-time favorite scent, so can’t wait to smell what they’ve done with the new Soleil!

  36. emily

    o0o0o0o I really like that starfish blush bronzer, looks like it would be a good mix of colors once on the cheek.

  37. Olena

    Christine, would it be possible for you to post the ingredients of the starfish blush?
    Thanks!

  38. Bianca

    I mentioned that ONLY the blush reminds me of To the beach b/c hipness blush had a sea star on top of the green compact.

  39. M@rsy

    Looks like an old 80′s ad. the make is like mac’s to the beach collection. I’m passing on this

  40. Vale

    Ok, in summer a lot of people get tan. But there are also A LOT OF OTHER PEOPLE who are still pale. So, why no-one thinks about the pale half of the population, creating also some make up that is not bronze-bronze-bronze-bronze? Each year, I don’t buy anything from the summer collections…

  41. Laura

    oh wow if that palette has good pay off it’ll def be on my shopping list!

  42. Sara

    I’m pretty sure that main advert picture could sell me a 50$ paper bag -__-;; she’s just unbelievably gorgeous.

  43. Karen

    Is there no luminous body lotion this year? :(

  44. JamieRebecca

    i work at macy’s and bought the starfish bronzer blush the day we pulled it out of the freight box.. loveeeeee it! gorgeous color when swirled together!

  45. This looks like a really beautiful collection. I especially love the eye shadow palette. I am a huge brown shadow fan and they look like really pretty shades of brown and bronze. Can’t wait to try it.

  46. tasleema

    What about the palette? I don’t seem to see it mentioned? What’s the cost?

  47. Joanne

    It smells like Tresor from Lancome. Basically it smells like every other sweet cloying perfume out there! I was so upset that EL discontinued the Bronze Goddess Shimmering lotion and Oil. That scent was amazing…warm and beachy and I always got compliments on it. Please bring it back!

  48. SongsaboutJ

    I am a mac NC40 with yellowish undertones ( get super black tanned in the beach) and I got the shadowstick duo in gold bronze and the starfish blush. I love them both and work well with medium skin tones all round. The packaging is pretty neat also. The shadowstick is amazingly long lasting, so you have to work with it quickly as it dries to a satin finish almost straight away.
    When I saw the collection on line I also wanted the eyeshadow palette but when I saw it live I swatched it and, trust me, it is not a must have for us medium toned, yellowish, tanned girls. I think it would look preety nonetheless, especially if you dont have an extensive collection of eyeshadows, but it is not a WOW product for us.
    Another product I thought I would buy is the luminous liquid bronzer. I am still deciding over this, whether I should buy it or not. I swatched it and tried it on my cheeks and it was definately bronzer pigmented( it is not just shimmer, at all) and fair skinned girls need be carefull, as it could be too dark, if used too much. It is basically a liquid bronzer with a slight reddish tone. Also well worth it.
