Estee Lauder Ultimate Mineral-Infused Matte Bronzers were the limited edition release for Summer 2019’s Bronze Goddess Collection, but you can still find some inventory hanging around. Keep reading for swatches and my thoughts.
I used to have both the shades 03 Brazen (medium deep) and 04 Hot Spell (deep). I will insert a picture of the two shades swatched next to each other, but I will warn you that it is blurry. I still own 04 Hot Spell and was able to take a new picture of that swatch, which is also below. Two lighter colors were also released as part of the collection, 01 Halo and 02 Suggestive. They retail for $40.00 and last I checked all 4 shades are still in stock at Macy’s.
I’ve had several Bobbi Brown products on my wishlist for years, but something always held me back from giving them a try. So back when it was announced that Bobbi Brown the makeup artist was leaving her namesake brand, I decided it was time to try those wishlist items before the new creative team changed any of her formulas. The shade selection is what held me back from trying the bronzing powder. I did not live near a Bobbi Brown counter (and still don’t actually) so I had no way to see the shades in person and decide what would work for me. I finally landed on trying these two shades, Elvis Duran and Deep. The good thing about this formula is that it is very buildable, so I think there is some wiggle room in the shade selection. I prefer using Elvis Duran, but I can work with Deep by using a light hand.
