When I think of spring and summer make-up I immediately think of lightweight foundation, a radiant complexion, fresh colors and a bit of golden shimmer here and there. And that is exactly the look I’m going for today! I used four new Estée Lauder products – courtesy of Estée Lauder – to create a (hopefully) fresh and radiant spring and summer look. Have a look!

Estée Lauder Clear Difference BB Cream in Light

Unlike many beauty lovers I never joined the International Cult of BB Worshippers, but when I learned about Estée Lauder’s new Clear Difference BB Cream my interest got piqued. A lightweight oil-free, non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic product that hides redness and blemishes, that hydrates, nourishes and protects the skin with SPF 35, and controls sebum? GIMME THAT!

The Estée Lauder Clear Difference BB Cream is relatively thick and creamy, but it’s easy to apply and has a very lightweight and natural-looking finish. It looks almost like second skin. And yet it manages to even out most of my skin discolorations. Woop woop! And the longevity and sebum-regulating capacities of the Estée Lauder Clear Difference BB Cream are more than okay too. In terms of wear and oil control it actually comes pretty close to the current unbeaten champion, my Revlon ColorStay foundation. The Estée Lauder Clear Difference BB Cream does provide less coverage than the ColorStay foundation, but then again the texture is a lot more lightweight as well, which actually makes it a perfect alternative for summer.

Estée Lauder Double Wear Brush-On-Glow BB Highlighter in Light

And the BB bonanza continues. The new Estée Lauder Double Wear Brush-On-Glow BB Highlighter is a highlighter and concealer pen that not only brightens the complexion and camouflages blemishes, but also moisturizes the skin. So it’s more than just a make-up product.

I personally use the Estée Lauder Double Wear Brush-On-Glow BB Highlighter only as a highlighter – it’s way too light for me to be used as concealer – and I use it to add light to my eyebrow bone, cheekbones and the inner corner of my eyes, and also to brighten up my under eye area. The texture of the Estée Lauder Double Wear Brush-On-Glow BB Highlighter is creamy and quite thick, and just a tiny bit of product is already enough for a natural-looking brightening effect.

Estée Lauder Pure Color LipShine in Mandarin

The Estée Lauder Pure Color LipShine in Mandarin is part of the Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess 2014 summer collection and is, together with Luscious Plum, a limited-edition color.

In case you can’t tell from the pictures: the Estée Lauder Pure Color LipShine is a jumbo lip pencil. That means that it gives color like a lipstick, nourishes the lips like a lip balm, and looks like an oversized lip pencil. The texture of the Estée Lauder Pure Color LipShine is very lightweight and soft, the formula is slightly hydrating, and the pencil glides on my lips like butter. Mandarin is a fresh tangerine shade with a pretty soft sheen. I really think it’s a super cute color for summer!

Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Shimmering Body Oil Spray

And last but not least, as promised, a bit of summery golden shimmer. For the 2014 Bronze Goddess Collection Estée Lauder created a brand new body oil that is scented with bergamot and mandarin, and nourishes the skin thanks to the addition of olive oil, grape seed, rice bran oil and apricot kernel in the formula.

Left untouched the golden shimmer particles in the Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Shimmering Body Oil Spray sink to the bottom of the (gorgeous!) bottle, but after a good shake you get what looks almost like a bottle of liquid gold. Spaaaaarkles, preeeeetty! The oil leaves behind a subtle shimmery veil on the skin. Hello killer cleavage and sexy legs!

  1. I am a BB girl…I like these thinner, not so heavy products! This one looks really good, it’s not to thin and it seems to give some coverage.

  2. Oeh! I really like the bronze shimmer spray! It will look so pretty in the sun! :-)

  3. I think this tangerine shade for the lips is soooo refreshing and will give it a go in the summer. I don’t tend to change my routine too much during the seasons, except for foundations.

  4. I’m a total sucker for shimmery and glittery body oil/sprays/lotions.
    but i never use them on a regular basis. just for the frist few days bc im so excited. and then i get too lazy. haha.

  5. Love this brand!
    The night repair makes my skin so soft that it feels like silk ;-)

  6. Mooie producten! Ik heb er helaas nog niets van :(

  7. Prachtige producten, vooral de gloss vind ik zoooo mooi! Echt een heerlijke lente kleur!

  8. Wat een mooie producten. De highlighter lijkt me erg prettig om te gebruiken, het effect ziet er mooi uit

  9. oh my die shimmer oil moet ik hebben!

  10. You look gorgeous Melissa! I love your look, what is on your cheeks? soo pretty!
    All the products you show look nice, but what really interests me most is the Bronze goddess body shimmer, I love some shimmer on the skin for summer!
    great review, as usual :)

  11. Oh, wat een mooie producten van estee lauder. Ik vind de LipShine in Mandarin onwijs mooi en ook de Shimmering Body Oil Spray zou ik wel willen proberen. Mooie cleavage shot hoor xD

  12. ooooo die bronzer is mooi, daar hou ik wel van…
    De kleur voor de lippen, ik dacht nog ff ieuww, te oranje, maar op je lippen echt heel erg mooi

  13. I’d like to try the bb cream :)

    Marianna,

  14. Die LipShine is ongelooflijk mooi zeg! En die bronzer zou ik ook wel willen proberen ^^

  15. Oohhh die BB Cream wil ik ook wel proberen! :D Ik ben gek op BB Cream, vooral Aziatische BB Creams, die zijn vaak net wat lichter, maar misschien dat Estée Lauder ook wel een goed kleurtje heeft voor mij :) Die Shimmering Body Oil Spray lijkt me ook heel tof; ik vind dat zo’n mooi effect geven :)

  16. I’ve never been into the whole BB/CC cream thing but this one looks quite nice! I rarely wear foundation in summer ’cause I hate the feeling of it melting on my face.

  17. Mooie producten! Vooral die BB cream lijkt me super!

  18. The lip shine looks really pretty on you!

  19. The lips shade suits you well. you are looking gorgeous!

  20. De spray ziet er mooi uit met die mini glitters, en het flesje is ook zo chique :) ik gebruik de laatste tijd mijn matterende poeder haast niet meer. Een gezonde gloed op mijn gezicht all the way, zeker met het mooie weer in België!

  21. I like the fact that the BB creams from Estée Lauder come in three versions for different skin types. I hope the will offer more shades in the future.

    The lip color is really nice on you.

  22. The moment EL released the Bronzed Goddess collection, I lusted after it. I’m so glad to see your review and how it looks on a ‘real person’ instead of an airbrushed model. So pretty!

  23. Hey Melissa, oh I’m definitely intrigued by that BB cream! I got this small Double Wear BB cream, and I really like it (it’s on my face right now)! If this one is relatively similar, I’ll be all over it!

  24. I have never used a BB cream before. I love your lip color it’s so glowy and screams Spring time.
    Happy Friday.

  25. waaaauww, wat een mooie foto’s prachtige lippen heb je :)

  26. the BB highlighter looks so interesting! I want to try it :D

    xx

  27. De Lipshine vind ik een makkelijke vorm hebben om aan te brengen! En die olie lijkt wat op de Huile Prodigieuse, maar ziet er toch nog anders uit, I like!

  28. I really lil EL BB Creams actually! I just got the All Day Wear Glow one and love it. That lip shade looks stunning on you!

  29. ooh wat een schone producten! De Estée Lauder Double Wear Brush-On-Glow BB Highlighter en die shimmer oil zijn toch wel twee parels! Leuke reviews!

  30. Oooh, jouw huid lijkt absoluut perfect! Die highlighter en bb cream zijn een prima duo!

  31. Have you seen the new EL Double Wear BB cream? Might be the one for you!

  32. Die foto is zo mooi! Die concealerpen die wil ik wel kopen !

  33. I am a BB person through and through. I hate wearing foundations and do not own a single one. Maybe because I haven’t found the right one yet.. My hunt is on. But I feel that BB creams look so much more natural and a few of my acne scars showing is kinda alright with me.
    Coming to that gorgeous bottle of Bronze Goddess! Oh my! It looks so lovely! On my wishlisht now :)

  34. Look at the pretty shimmer in the Body Oil Spray! I’ve never used anything like this before and now I’m intrigued! Does it leave oily or sticky residues?

  35. I love Estee lauder skin care products and foundation. Loved your detailed reviews and clear swatches. Happy weekend :-)

  36. I love Estee Lauder! So much information here, thank you! I’ll check them out, esp. Bronze Goddess – I love it for Summer. You look stunning as always!

  37. I really like these products that you reviewed… I love the sparkle one, it’s a nice way to have some sparkle without going crazy… :) I also love the lip color, it looks amazing. Have a really wonderful weekend :)

  38. Despite myself, I really want that oil :-D I actually use my Chanel Illusion d’Ombre in Fantasme more for adding sparkle to my collarbones, etc than I do as eyeshadow, LOL! I also managed to avoid bankrupting myself on that Guerlain Crazy Paris pink glitter body mist, but only just.

    What can I say? A rogue likes the shinies :-D

    I can’t usually wear EL face products or skincare, as they give me eczema on my face! :-( I do love their lip products, however, and that chubby pencil is calling to me…

  39. I love that orange shade on you! And your skin always looks fabulous, Melissa!

  40. You look so glowy and stunning! I totally need that lip color!

  41. You are really glowing….I wanna try the BB cream..Lately none have been working too well for me..I will give this one a try nd see…Nd that Bronze godess looks amazing! Lovely Review :)
