The preview event was half makeup lesson, half presentation, which was a unique format to learn just how to use the products to their best. All attendees received a full guide with tips and tricks, which I'm excited to share with you in some future posts! For now though, it's all about the eye porn as I present to you photos of everything I got my paws on at the event. Enjoy!
Above is the newest rendition of Bronze Goddess line. All of the products here are designed to give that fresh, radiant look for summer, but really, who couldn't use a little glow every day of the year?
The Bronze Goddess pressed powder comes in a beautiful tortoise-shell-like case and features a pretty inlay that resembles a seashell. This is one of those products that you want to just keep for looks and never use!
These unique highlighters can be used all over the face for the sheerest hint of color. While they look beautiful, I do wish they were a little more pigmented.
On the other hand, I LOVED this all-over stick. This one is quite reminiscent of the NARS Orgasm multi-stick, but lighter and prettier if possible and it gives the most beautiful luminosity to skin.
The Bronze Goddess Shimmering Body Oil Spray is a light, scented body oil that also provides a subtle shimmer to your skin when sprayed. Use on collarbones, shoulders and decolletage for a sexy glow.

For Spring, Estee Lauder collaborated with French designer Andre Courreges to create this exclusive collection of shadows, highlighters and lip/cheek duos. I'm unfamiliar with Courreges' work, but the resulting collection seems like a big departure from the usual style of Estee Lauder. The packaging and palette of this collection looks very mod with a focus on shimmery or glossy finishes. Not sure I'm a huge fan of this one to be honest.

The Perfecting Loose Powder though has got to be the most exciting part of the collection for me. This powder is seriously amazeballs. Normally I hate loose powders, but this one applies so silky and literally erased all signs of texture on my hand when I swatched it. I could not stop stroking my hand like a creepo for the rest of the event after trying this one!
As a huge fan of the Aerin perfumes, I was super excited to smell the new Rose de Grasse parfum. Besides looking beautiful, the Rose de Grasse also smells beautiful. The scent is heavier and more nuanced than the other Aerin perfumes and also more mature as a result. Someone commented that this would make a perfect bridal fragrance and I couldn't agree more. This perfume encapsulates that romantic bridal feeling entirely. I would wear this in a heartbeat if it weren't $185 per bottle!
The new Little Black Primer eyelash primer is one of the first lash primers that is also tinted! Seems like a no-brainer right? The curved wand hugs every lash and this primer can even be worn alone.
Last, but not least, I of course have to finish off with the palettes. Above is pictured the Sephora exclusive Bronze Goddess Shimmering Nudes Face & Eye palette. Think of this one as summer in a palette; it contains a warm peachy bronzer and three shimmering eye shades.
Another palette that has me quite tempted is Bronze Goddess Shimmering Nudes palette. Nude? Shimmering? Eyeshadow palette? You just know I was drooling all over this one. I love the versatility of this one with 2/3 of the palette containing easy-to-wear rose gold shades and then 3 killer metallic shades to transition your look easily from day to night. Do I need another palette in my life? Maybe!
Which of these products are you lusting over?
