Estée Lauder | Bronze Goddess Island Oasis EyeShadow Palette | Review + Swatches

Inspired by hues from the surf and sand, the NEW, Limited Edition Bronze Goddess Island Oasis EyeShadow Palette of six irresistibly wearable shades brightens and defines eyes by day and transforms them by night. The eyeshadows’ delicate iridescent pigments allure with radiance and luminosity in warm sand shades of copper, bronze, gold and coral balanced by cool surf hues of turquoise, seashell pink, silver and seaweed.

Glow: I can't seem to get enough of Estée Lauder's gold & bronzey hues. The one's in this palette are kinda reminiscent of their Extravagant Gold Compact released late last year.  What I love most about this palette is that each color is consistent, they go on smooth and effortlessly. They also blend well and the shimmers stay put, which is a huge plus for anyone whose experienced that nasty " fall out " of some shimmery eyeshadow's. These are also highly pigmented, the swatches above only required one swipe :o)

Glare: No glares but it would be nice to see these beautiful palettes and compacts come with a nicer brush or applicator. The one that's included with it is so teeny!

Would I Recommend It? Yes!! There are so many endless possibilities with these colors and I love that the colors are somewhat subtle and not over the top!

Overall Glam: Estée Lauder seems to consistently get it right with their palettes. These colors are so complimentary to one another. The quality and packaging are beautiful!

** The Island Oasis EyeShadow Palette retails for $42 and is currently available at Estée Lauder counters nationwide. To learn more or to purchase please visit www.esteelauder.com .
