Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Exotic Bronzing Blush Review, Photos, Swatches

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Exotic Bronzing Blush

Get Your Blush AND Bronze on?  Hmm…

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Exotic Bronzing Blush ($35.00) is a pressed powder bronzer and blush with a coral reef inspired design. Estee Lauder calls it a “Bronzing Blush,” and you can tell in the photo that it really is exactly that! It’s unrealistic to use the two shades separately, but once swirled together, they create a rosy-peach bronzed shade.

It’s peachy without really being too pink and not quite brown but more like a gilded champagne. The shimmer is fine enough that it doesn’t accent pores but is still noticeable. I found this worked mostly as a blush, as it did have enough peach and rose tones to it that it’s more a blush than a bronzer. It does give my cheeks that sunkissed glow, though.

I like that the packaging has a very modern look and feel to it–that coppery bronze that shimmers in the sunlight.  The pricing is a little high, though, for a product that’s mostly a blush.  I’d have preferred to see this at maybe a $28 or $30 price point–more in line with their normal blush prices.

  • Product: 28/30
  • Value: 7/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

Recommendation:  It’s a cute compact, and it works well on warmer skin tones for sure. On cooler skin tones, it may not be as lovely, since it does have a warmer undertone. I also think on deeper skin tones, it may work mostly as a highlighter rather than a blush. Light to medium skin tones should have no problems using this as a blush or blush-highlighter! It’s not the most unique blush shade, but it’s done well.

I wasn’t really eyeing with the summer collection of Estee Lauder,but this bronzing blush looks great for my pale skin.Maybe it’s a stupid question,but how would this one compare to MAC’s By Candlelight MSf?

Hey Cristine this color look so pretty but I think it looks like springsheen or sunbasque from mac what do you think? I dont want to spend more money unless it is totally different than what I have already…..What do you think?

Well I ve tried the Liquid Eyeshadow, the blue one, was gorgeous stayed there for ages but when I tryied to take it off for sleap it gave me a very hard time!!!!!!!!!For a monment I thought I would have goegeous blue eyelids for therest of my life!:-)))

Its funny when I was little ALL i used was estee lauder because my mom loved it and would give me the bags of free gifts they would give her. She figured if I was gonna play she didn’t want to pay for it and she didn’t worry I was gonna get a weird reaction from something cheap. and let me tell you they dont make those bags like they used to. They would come complete with a hair brush and like 4-5 full sized products! But now that I am older and can actually pay for and choose my own beauty products I don’t think I have bought a single item from Estee Lauder…because of you I might just rediscover it. I am almost a bit nostalgic about it, but this looks great and modern and young (color!!!), which I always think they lack even though Estee Lauder owns like everything! (i.e. MAC and Bobbi Brown)

That’s surely pretty. It looks a lot peachier when mixed, which is what “ve been looking for. How does it compare to Sugar Bomb?

No reason to ignore EL. They don’t get alot of love but have some great stuff. They also have some even better stuff on the horizon 😉
