The Limited Edition Bronzer That Needs To Come Back

I have a love hate relationship with limited edition products. First of all, don’t get me started on limited edition MAC products. They sell out so quickly! I can understand why MAC doesn’t make enough product to satisfy everyone’s needs from a business stand point, but as a consumer, it is extremely aggravating. Anyway, I digress.

One product (of many) that I really wish was permanent is Estée Lauder’s Illuminating Powder Gelée in Shimmering Sands. This is one limited edition bronzer that needs to come back! It is a bronze/copper shade that’s actually considered a highlighter, but for my skin tone it acts more as a bronzer. If you have a darker complexion then this would be a gorgeous highlighter!

The product itself is very pigmented, smooth, and applies flawlessly. The color adds a beautiful shimmering warmth to the skin, but it’s not so shimmery that you look like a disco ball. I think this is especially beautiful in the summer if you want a coppery bronze radiance and warmth to the skin.

This is the only Powder Gelée that I own from Estée Lauder, which is a shame because it’s so stunning. I missed out on Heat Wave– still crying about that– and Topaz Chameleon since they launched before I was really into makeup brands other than MAC and NARS. The only reason I was able to get this product is because I found it at a CCO (Cosmetic Company Outlet) otherwise I would have missed out on this beauty as well. I really suggest going to a CCO because sometimes they have some great products that are no longer available in regular stores.

I really hope they relaunch this, Heat Wave and Topaz Chameleon at some point because I’d really like to get my hands on the latter two.
