I brought Elizabeth Arden's "Sun Goddess Bronzing Powder" approximately 3-4 years ago. This was my first bronzer I ever brought, This bronzer is still my go to bronzer. I am still very impressed with how pigmented this blush is and how long it lasts, I have only just hit pan with this bronzer, its honestly taken that long!
The bronzer itself has a slight shimmer to it which isn't to obvious. The packaging is so cute, The bronzer comes with a small compact mirror inside and is super secure!
- Packaging is secure and super cute
- Lasts all day
- Comes with a small compact mirror
- Colour has a nice shimmer to it
- Colour itself has a mild to high pigmentation
- Takes forever to hit pan
- Suits many skin tones and types
- Available online or in most cosmetic stores
- Amazing quality
- Shimmer may wander
Overall I WOULD buy this product again, I couldn't think of any cons to mention about this product besides that the shimmer sometimes wanders, I would suggest if this happens to you to invest in a primer which is what I have done since and now its perfect! Everyone should try this product out at some point. :)

Love this product! Comes in a lovely compact with mirror. Colour is great you can go as bronzed as you want to - it's not too orange. It gives you a healthy glow and brightens your face.
Brush is excellent.

Lovely bronzer..very golden and gives a great glow. My go to bronzer..not too orange or brown. The formula streaks a little bit at the end of the day so I try not to use too much of it. Would rebuy!

Comes with the softest brush so definitely worth every penny! Such ashame that all the best products are limited edition. Will have to stock up from ebay!

LOVE THIS BRONZER. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
Very affordale & majority of the ones sold on ebay are sold for no more than AUD $30ea... rrp $58 at any Elizabeth Arden counters.
Comes with a soft bristle blush which glides on your face so well leaving you looking natural & not too cakey. Feels light on your skin & this is great for using around the decolletage area as well as all over body. Has golden tinge which really blends well with my skin & body.
Would buy again.... bought two for AUD$50 because I thought it was a bargain.

Best bronzer I've ever tried.
For a first time user it's a little difficult to figure out how much you really need. I learned that the easiest way with the best result is to dab the brush on to the bronzer instead of a stroke (which gives way too much bronzer on the brush) then shake it in the air to get rid of excess bronzer. Then I dab it onto my cheekbones. And AFTER that I stroke the brush over to make it completely even.
The bronzer lasts for so long. And it's a nice soft brush you get with it.

This product did, indeed, make me look like a sun goddess! Its gorgeous! I normally have very fair skin, and this did not make me look too orange or too pink...just a lovely bronzed colour.

I think it is beautiful when you begin using it, the problem is that the product runs out of the pink/peach tones once you wear it down. How disappointing it is otherwise a beautiful bronzer!

loved this to death. really really nice. not orange. sun kissed glow. but towards the end especially when the pinky middle bit runs out just makes your face look dirty

I am pale and my skintype is dry. I have the shade medium. I think the color is not orange, but it looks blotchy on the skin. Brush is awesome. I read the ingredients list and there was no dimethicone in it. Blushes and bronzers that dont contain Dimethicome dont usually work well on my dry skintype. They are not long lasting enough. Also I find it too shiny, suddenly I noticed pores that I really did not even know I had. Guerlain is the only bronzer I really like and the day they discontinue it, I will stop wearing bronzer.
EDIT: As the pink shiny stuff wore off...this bronzer looks decent on the skin. In fact the color is perfect on my fair skin. It is not too yellow, orange, pink or anything. I just hate Elizabeth Arden for discontinuing this. Instead they have come out with this duo bronzer that has a huge pan of pink shimmer with the bronzer. BLAH. Obviously I am in the minority thinking that pink shimmer was so unflattering.

This made me look dirty. I even had a professional make-up artist at the stand apply it and it still looks dirty. Horrible, expensive product, do not waste your money.
BTW, I have dark olive skin. If it made me look dirty, it'll make a pale person look even dirtier. Don't waste your money on this.

Although I'm only ever at the EA counter to purchase Crystal Clear lip gloss, the Sun Goddess tester caught my eye - it has an embossed shimmery pink sun in the middle of the round compact - and decided to give it a try, using the provided brush, reminiscent of Jean Paul Gaultier's men's bronzer brush. I was surprised to find that it picked up and distributed color better than my MAC brushes, and the bronze itself is even prettier than Estee Lauder's Bronze Goddess, which I moved onto after years of using Guerlain Terracotta. On my NC25 Asian skin it's a gorgeous natural browny bronze, exactly the color I achieve after an afternoon at the beach.

Unofficial Disclaimer: Do not purchase if you are pale or dry skinned. Will look orange.

Powder goes on smoothly, just enough shimmer to give your skin a glow without looking like you smeared sparkle cream all over. Covers up uneven tans, especially if your foundation is a little darker than the rest of your body. It is expensive so if you want a blush/bronzer/skin-highlighter combination, it's worth it. I do with the brush had a case though.

Loving this bronzer, kindof expensive, but when you get the nice brush with it don't make the price seem that bad.

I can't believe I haven't reviewed this yet! I love this. Goes on smoothly, doesn't come out orange or tacky, and comes in a nice blue compact. The brush works great too.

I'm 100% satisfied with this bronzer. Gives me a real natural glow. Will buy it again!!

I had Laguna which was really nice but Laguna is cheap compared to Elizabeth Arden's Sun Goddess which is gorgeous. It gives you a beautifully bronzed shimmery look and the texture is great and the packaging is so pretty. I love it, i can't be without it!

This review compares Estee Lauder's Bronze Goddess with Elizabeth Arden's fairly new Sun Goddess. I noticed many similarities in the case,
the name... and the look of the product (other than the pink sunflower in Arden's bronzer). And, Lauder's pan is reasonably larger.
I made it my mission to see what, if any, differences could be found between the two. I conducting a fair and decent comparison on my light to medium skintone. I was jonesin' for Arden's (already had Lauder's and love it) since it came with the cool Kabuki brush and looked great on display at Ulta.
And I'm a bronzer junkie. What can I say? Have tried too many to mention in search of perfection.
Lauder's Bronze Goddess has hues of bronzed caramel brown, slightly red - NO orange. A natural day at the beach color and no detectable sparkle on the skin - it seems to melt into skin rather than settle into pores or fine lines. The half moon handle brush is cute, but you can do a better job with a fluffy blusher brush or kabuki. This bronzer retails for $29.50 U.S. Arden's Sun Goddess is most definitely on the bronze-gold- even (eeeesh) slightly orangey scale - a lot of gold with a high sparkle factor. It looks lovely in the pan and is actually very pretty when applied, but simply more over-the-top and certainly not as natural. More of a day with makeup versus a day at the beach or pool. It also seems to sit on top of the skin and has a more powder effect. Once the little pink flower brushes off you're left with a pan of gold/bronze powder with glitter. It would be a good night time glam look, if you're into that. For every day wear I don't recommend. The brush seems to be of high quality. Retail - 27.50 or $25 on QVC.
