Ok, so this collection won’t be hitting stores before March but it’s never too early to get started on your spring must-have list. Find out why the Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Capri Collection for spring 2012 is one of my faves of the season.
In looking at the image of all the great products you may not realize that the lip gloss is the highlight of it all — according to me anyway. That unassuming gloss is one of my fave new goodies of the year. I attended a press event before the holidays to get a sneak peek and got to go home with my own tube of Pure Color Gloss in Shimmering Mirage ($24). This is actually a yellow gloss — don’t be scared! I was because yellow on my lips just didn’t sound great but it really is amazing. It gives the lips a subtle golden hue with a yellowish tint. I’m a brunette so I was worried this would make my skin reflect yellow or look washed out and on the contrary, it totally revived it.
The NEW Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelée in Shimmering Sands ($50) is also one of the biggest must-haves of the spring. It’s so shimmering and gorgeous and I saw first-hand, with my own eyes, that this shad works for every skin tone. I attended the event with three other women, two of am African American background and one of Indian background. I’m white (and pretty white right now) and the colour looks fab on all of us! Plus, it can be used wet and dry for cheeks, eyes or even lips. So versatile.
