Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Luminous Liquid Bronzer Review

I think I might have turned to the dark side....must be because they have cookies over here...nothing could tempt me over to the dark side other than cookies and possibly cuppycakes.

I'm talking about the bronzer dark side of course.


The Muse likes her white pasty skin. This means the sun, tanning, and bronzers are a big NO for her. However, she does so admit to dabbling her tiny toes in the bronzer pond lately.

Shocked was she that the new Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Luminous Liquid Bronzer is actually kinda awesome....


Whoa a momentous day indeed! Should we write the date down? Muse discovers awesome bronzer March 3rd, 2009. K, got it!

I'm thinking you need to try out the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Luminous Liquid Bronzer for yourself. Head to a counter and have a little swatch and a play. Afterward come back here and tell me whatcha think. Bet you'll join me on the dark side, don't expect cookies I don't bake.



I like this stuff!

Basically the product comes in a glass foundation style bottle which houses a rather dark, scary gold bronze liquid. Looking at it makes me quiver and shake in fear but I promise it's actually quite an enlightening experience once you tried it out.

I take a few dabs and rub on my cheeks and whatever I have left on my fingers I apply to my chin and forehead. The effect is a soft, peachy glow with hints of golden sparkle. Nothing too dramatic, nothing too crazy. A little goes a long way considering the product is deeply pigmented so best not get too crazy otherwise you'll be sporting a BAD tan. Just a tiny dab on each cheek, blend, and presto beautiful looking skin.



Well, wow who knew it could be so simple to apply liquid bronzer? I followed up my look by putting a touch of blush on top so it looks more natural. The finished result is a flushed tanned look that makes me look like I stood in the sun for a few hours. Actually the effect is better than a regular boring tan as the color is such a nice peachy glow which is something you can't get from the sun.

Considering you only need a dab for your face you'll probably take years to use this all up so I highly suggest adding a little bit to your moisturizer and applying to your legs for a nice tint of color or even arms! Might as well get the most bang for your buck outta of it right?








If you're wanting to pair it up with some great products the Muse suggests trying it out with a golden eye look! How about the new Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Sand & Sea Eyeshadow Palette (review coming soon...)? Gold is always great with a tan so I recommend applying a touch of the bronzer with some Urban Decay Baked Bronzer on top for a truly sparkling golden tan! Want glowing pink cheeks with your bronzed skin? Trying topping with a touch of Bobbi Brown Rouge Pot or a Stila Convertible Color!

The application is simplicity itself which makes it very appealing for a bronzer newbie like me. A simple swipe and blend on my cheeks is all it takes! The shade should be pretty universal and work with lighter, medium, and darker skin types. If you're lighter you'll want to just use a tiny dab and if you're darker a little bit more will give you just the right glow!

No matter how you use it I'm positive you'll fall in love with it the way I did. I'm quite shocked at how much I liked it and I'm already planning many uses for it this coming Summer!

Before Bronzer

Heavier Application of Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Luminous Liquid Bronzer



Light handed application



Loves it and I can't believe I'm about to say this but I'm Muse Approving it for purchase!



You'll love this if:
  • You want a simple bronzer that applies in a snap and doesn't make a mess!
  • You want something you can use on your face and your legs and arms (why not? who says we can't improvise!)
  • You like a tanned look but don't want to get it by forsaking your skin to the evil rays of the sun!

Overall, I was delighted with this bronzer and can see myself making great use of it, particularly when the MAC Summer Collection hits!

How about you?

Think this might be something you'd love?

Tried it before?

Like it?

Tell the Muse!

I would totally pair that with Urban Decay's Half Baked. However, I still don't know that I could apply bronzer without looking silly. Looks gorgeous on you. How do you apply it? Just to the top of your cheeks?
