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.

Bronze Goddess Highlighter is a soft beige with warm, golden undertones and a luminous sheen. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage with a soft, blendable texture that wasn’t too firm or too powdery in the pan. The powder highlighted the skin without emphasizing pores. On me, it wore for seven and a half hours before fading. Hourglass Iridescent Strobe Light (P, $38.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Luminous (P, $30.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Highlighter (Softcore) (LE, $55.00) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals The Brilliant Sunset (LE, $26.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Soft & Gentle (P, $32.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). MAC Sparkling Rose (LE, $26.00) is darker (90% similar). Chanel Coups de Minuit (12) (LE, $45.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar).

Bronze Goddess Blush is a medium, rosy pink with warm undertones and a fine, golden shimmer-sheen finish. It had semi-opaque coverage with a slightly drier texture that was somewhat stiff in the pan. I couldn’t really build-up the color much beyond what you see in the swatch, no matter how many layers. It was fairly blendable but could have been easier to work with. It lasted for seven hours on me. Laura Geller Rosewater (P, $26.00) is darker, more pigmented (95% similar). NARS 413 BLKR (Blush) (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker, brighter (90% similar). NARS Give In Take Blush III (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Becca Camellia (P, $34.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC At Dusk (LE, $25.00) is more muted (90% similar). Benefit Bella Bamba (DC, $28.00) is darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Bicoastal (Bottom) (LE) is darker (85% similar). Tarina Tarantino Parasol (P, $25.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Guerlain Smile (Right) (LE, $52.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Colour Pop Boba (DC, $8.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Bronze Goddess Contour is a medium orange with hints of brown and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque coverage and also had a firmer press to the pan like the blush (the highlighter is the easiest and most finely-milled powder of the three). It’s apparent that Estee Lauder has joined the bronzer = contour train, because this is an unlikely contour for many skin tones and looks more like a lighter version of most bronzers. It blends out decently and the finish is nice–a natural sheen that doesn’t emphasize pores or look overtly shimmery. It wore for seven and a half hours. Guerlain Terre d'Ete (LE, $78.00) is darker, brighter (95% similar). Zoeva ND020 (P) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Carry-On (P, $8.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Lo-Fi (LE, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Delphic (LE, $33.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Suqqu Hanachaori (02) (P, $34.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever #25I (P, $36.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Aphrodite's Shell (LE, $33.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Dolce and Gabbana Desert (P, $51.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Sunny Side (LE, $32.00) is lighter (85% similar). Sephora Fiji (25) (P, $14.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Colour Pop Paradise Cove (P, $8.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar).
