Estee Lauder Illuminating Powder Gelee in Heatwave

Wednesday, 10 July 2013

I've been meaning to blog about this absolutely stunning powder gelee from Estee Lauder for ages now, it is by far my favourite summer beauty product of the year so far. As soon as I saw this in my local House of Fraser I knew I had to have it - the aptly named 'Heatwave' is a beautiful, shimmery beige-gold highlight that blends like an absolute dream and gives the most gorgeous golden sheen. 

For me, Estee Lauder can honestly do no wrong and their Bronze Goddess collection (of which this is a part of) ticks all my summer makeup boxes. As with all Estee Lauder products, the gold packaging screams luxe and I love having this beautiful little compact on my dressing table. It comes complete with a handy little sponge applicator which I find quite nifty for popping the product on my brow bone and other precise areas, although generally I prefer to use a brush to apply the product, sweeping it over the top of the cheeks to create a gorgeous shimmery highlight effect. 

Since receiving the Estee Lauder Illuminating Powder Gelee in Heatwave I have been using it as a highlighter non-stop. It has definitely got to be my all-time favourite highlighter and it's simply a pleasure to work with. It blends beautifully into the skin and gives a seriously flawless, glowing finish that I cannot fault. It definitely illuminates the face and makes me look glowing and healthy, perfect for over the summer months. I actually think it would also make a pretty good eyeshadow base which is something I'm going to experiment with in the future. Unfortunately I think it's pretty hard to get hold of at the minute, so if you see it - buy it! I promise you won't regret it.
