A palette with bold nude shades for the face, cheeks, and eyes. The Bronze Goddess Shimmering Nudes Face & Eye Palette lets you illuminate the face with a sun-kissed glow. With a sheer, sun-saturated palette of three eye shades and a bronzer in dramatic nudes for the face, cheeks, and eyes, this palette lets you bright up the complexion with summer-inspired makeup looks.
The first few items of Estee Lauder’s Bronze Goddess Summer 2015 collection have launched, and more is on the way. This review is for the Shimmering Nudes Face & Eye Palette, which looks like it is a Sephora exclusive. This palette includes a bronzer and 3 illuminating eye shadow shades.
This palette is made of heavy cardboard and plastic. It stays closed via a magnet and has a mirror in the lid.
On the left, the palette contains a bronzer. This bronzing shade is neutral in tone and technically has shimmer in it. The effect you initially get is soft, but is buildable. The shimmer isn’t really noticeable if you’re using just 1-2 layers. I use this bronzer for contouring and all-over bronzing without feeling like it’s shimmery. If you apply the powder more heavily and are in direct sunlight, the shimmer will be more noticeable.
On the right side, the palette contains 3 eye shadow shades. The shadows have good pigmentation but the actual effect on the eyes is soft. The effect is beautiful because of the iridescent shimmer each shade has. I do find, though, that the formula creases a little sooner than normal–after about 5-6 hours of wear.
