Overall I would rate this bronzer 4.5 lipsticks as it gives me that subtle glow reminiscent of Guerlain's bronzers but for less money.
I'm a NC30 and Medium works with my skin tone but I need to be careful not to use a heavy hand. Light is better for fair skin tones and if EL came out with a Light/Medium, that would be spot on for me.

This bronzer does have a sheen to it but it's not at noticeable. (I prefer Bobbi Brown's bronzers for this reason - they're matte)
The packaging is very much EL in its dark blue compact and there's a lot of product too.

I would re-purchase as a back up to my BB bronzers for those days when I want something a bit different.

Overall, a great bronzer.

Initially, I loved this bronzer, great colour, blends really well, gives me an overall sun kissed goddess look. Over some time though, however, I noticed where I would apply it (cheeks, forehead) I had small bumps - which I never had before hand.

Really disappointed, because I love how my skin looks when i'm wearing it........Except that it causes these small bumps in my skin :( :(

Love this it's my 2nd favourite bronzer, lasts for ages and love that the compact is bigger than usual so I can use my large brushes unlike benefit hoola

I have medium cool skin with medium pink tones and freckles so finding a contour color can be a bit of a problem at times. I have Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi Color No. 2 as a Bronzer which I love but it can be a bit too orangey for contouring. I also fed into the hype and bought Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder which is too warm for me. It is a drag to look like you have a "streak that looks like a chocolate bar across one's face" as Lisa Eldridge so eloquently phrased it. I love Estee Lauder products so when I stopped in to say Hello to my favorite SA the Regional Sales Manager was there. I asked what their contour colors were like and she applied Bronze Goddess in Medium on my face. I was in awe of how it looked so natural on me. She showed me how to use it and my search for the perfect contour color was over. It has a bit of a shimmer but not too much to be extremely noticeable. This is perfect. I use it as a Bronzer as well. I love this and I hope they continue to make it for a long time.

I have mature skin, mac NW22/25, Rimmel classic beige in 25 hour lasting foundation, Pebble in EL double wear liquid, Sephora airbrush perfection (natural beige), Goeurland (spelling ?) in NARS TM... Have had this for over 7 years and I still love it. Never orange, never drying, never shows 'mature' pores..perfect match for my skin tone. For blusher use, I reach for this more than I do my MAC mineralized skin in 'medium deep.'

This shade is featured in the Deluxe All-Over Face Compact that came with a set of eye shadows. This shade does not work at all on my pale skin. It's way too bright and looks clownish, even if I were to ever want a bolder shade of blush. The packaging is nice, since there is a mirror and a small brush included with the blush quad compact.

Also I take issue with the misleading name. It says "Bronzer", yet the powder is a very bright pink. The idea of a bronzer is to look tanned, so maybe they should name it blusher instead. Speaking of the name, the term "Goddess" is stupid. Lol we're just humans.

Would not recommend.

I got this bronzer in Medium (02) in the 2014 Holiday Color Portfolio Palette. Overall, I really like it. It's a basic, warm matte bronzer. Does the job and I have no complaints. Would not purchase because it's really expensive and I prefer blush to bronzer (I was born with a tan) but will definitely continue to use it since I have it.

Isn't anything special, not worth the price tag! I'd much rather cheaper bronzing products I've tried! For some reason it just doesn't apply right on my skin, looks patchy & uneven.. but I must say I do love the packaging and use the mirror every day, that's about it.

One of my favourate products, I love bronzers and have used quite a few but nothing I've tried compares to this.

Pro's
- Long lasting (i have very oily skin)
- Perfect colour match For me (brunette, skin with yellow undertone, warm, meditarian complexion)
- A little goes a long way so worth the price (my first one lasted 1.5 years of daily use)
- Great packaging, easy to use, even its own brush is good.

Cons
- for me none

I like it, colour is fab. But for my combination/acne-probe skin its not the best. I get breakouts and after a whi÷e i look really skiny :(
I still gave it 4 lippies since i understan that for a normal skin type without acne this probably is really really good. I find it quite cheap also :)
