Review: Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Island Oasis Palette♥

Like I said in this post, I was rather taken with the 'Island Oasis' palette, which is part of the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess collection. Well, I was really really happy when a few days later, I was very kindly sent it to review.

It is inspired by the Mediterranean - warm sand, blue seas,  seashell pinks and of course seaweed! It's the perfect palette for any bronzed beauty.
The main shades that stood out to me when I first saw this palette were the Champagne shade, the Bronze, and the Seashell pink with a gorgeous gold sheen running through it. They are all gorgeous though. The only shadow I noticed any fall out from was the champagne shade, but it was nothing I quick dusting wouldn't fix.

I'm a bit boring when it comes to eyeshadow, so I kind of dismissed the turquoise shade, but whilst I was having a little play, I decided to use it along the lower lash line and I really like it! Turquoise is one of the best shades to wear when you are 'bronzed' so I think it's fantastic that it's been put in this palette. The black with gold sparkles (which look green in some lights) is really pretty, and unlike some shadows I have tried before which have been similar, the sparkles actually show up!

(Sorry this is so shoddily done. I had two hours sleep thanks to my poorly niece so I was a bit blurry eyed, and not with it.)
 I used the 'champagne' shade on my lids, 'bronze' in the crease and on the outer part of my lower lash line and 'turquoise' lightly smudged over top.

Overall, I really rate this palette. It is fab quality and perfect for summer!!

You can purchase this palette from Estee Lauder online, and counters nationwide. Its priced at £31.
