If you have been a reader for a while, you’ll know that the new Bronze Goddess collection is one of my favourite dates in the beauty calendar. It feels a bit strange this year with lockdown, because it’s a collection that’s so evocative of Summer holidays and exotic  places. Actually this feels like perfect timing because I’m in need of something transportative to lift my spirits. So please check out the the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess 2020 Makeup collection with photos and swatches. And guess what?! Modern Mercury is back!!

Update 22nd May 2020

All shades of the gelee highlighter including magnificent Modern Mercury are back at FeelUnique*.

The full Bronze Goddess  collection is live, Including Modern Mercury Highlighting Powder Gelee Look Fantastic*, at Estee Lauder*, Feel Unique*.

Bronze Goddess Azur Summer Look Palette Shades & Swatches

This is a really pretty eyeshadow palette that follows the same format as the 2019 Desert Heat Eyeshadow palette.  This a cooler toned shade selection for 2020. There are four matte shades and five shimmer shades, and I think you can probably use the central shade on the face too. Available at Azur Summer Look Palette*  now.

The Modern Mercury news is pretty big! In case you’re unaware, Modern Mercury has quite the Estee Lauder history. It was a limited edition highlighter back in a collection that launched in 2013. It was a ground-breaking formula of the time, but once the collection was sold out, MM was no longer available.

Then, in 2016, Victoria Beckham chose it to be part of her debut VB X EL collection and everyone went completely crazy over it and wondered why it has never been made permanent.

Now that Victoria Beckham has her own beauty range, with ex-Estee Lauder beauty guru Sarah Creal, we had to say goodbye to Modern Mercury again. And now Bronze Goddess 2020 is bringing it back. Sorry, is that too much information?! It’s very exciting!

They have different outer packaging, and look more  like last year’s bronzers from the outside. They also have a gorgeous new pan design.  All shades available at LookFantastic* now. Here are the swatches:

I really enjoy this highlighter formula from EL. It uses unique prisma technology which gives such a gorgeous glow. It is a tri-brid of liquid, powder and gel and it has such a beautiful smooth finish, delivering a soft sheen that illuminates the complexion wonderfully.

We have two matte powder bronzers (medium and deep) and one luminous highlighter. You can use them individually, or blend them together. Here are the swatches:

This is the perfect palette to use with a big fluffy brush, swirled all over the pan to warm up the complexion and get it glowing.

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess 2020 Fragrance Collection

Of course we have the classic Bronze Goddess skinscent. I absolutely adore it and for me, it really is the scent of summer.

It’s like lying on the beach in a beautiful place surrounded by the uplifting scents of creamy coconut, soft vanilla and sexy amber. It will always be a favourite for me.

This year we also have the Azur Eau de Toilette edition which massively reminds me of Tom Ford’s Neroli Portofino. It’s super citrussy with its soft Bronze Goddess twist. If you love the Tom Ford Summer Scents in the Private Blend collection, I think you will like this a lot.

  1. Heatwave looks much deeper than last year’s and even the original, can’t wait to try the new hair and body products though! This collection is unmissable every year x

  2. Hi, what is the difference between the ‘skinscent’ and the EDP? is it just an EDT? I remember spritzing it years ago in store (prob around 2006/7!) and loving it (hopefully it hasn’t changed!) and i’m tempted to just go for it online ..always a bit risky with scent! xx
