Coming Attraction: Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Collection for Summer 2013 - Continued

I finally got my hands on the rest of the Bronze Goddess Collection product shots from Estée Lauder. I knew this would happen. As soon as I went ahead with what I had, the rest of the photos are made available to the press. These product photos will make you even more excited about the collection. If you didn't see my original feature on all of these treasures, check it out at this link.

I mentioned yesterday that I was already sold on the Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelée in Heat Wave ($40). It appears to be a perfect shade for my fair skin - and I know I adore the formula. I want it now!

This Pure Color Five Color Eyeshadow Palette in Batik Sun ($48) will haunt me until I get my hands on it.
There you go! Now I think I've shown you all the photos - either in the product groups at the top of this feature or individually in yesterday's post and this one.

P.S. A note about photos...I find it a bit pretentious that bloggers watermark or even add copyrights to photos that are clearly the copyrighted property of a brand. The photos are released to the press, but the ownership rights to them are never released. Many bloggers watermark their own photos in order to protect them from Internet thieves. I am not speaking of that practice (only that of appropriating copyrights). I don't watermark my photos because that has never stopped the copyright infringement I have suffered.

I admire Estée Lauder for making its photos available promptly (pre-release) and for the quality of their color portraits. They are a first-class, five-star company.

Love the look of that eyeshadow palette and the lipglosses.

I totally agree with you about how silly it is for bloggers to put their copyright on what are obviously official product visuals from the brand. I saw the blogger who did this, and she also lifts photos from several Japanese beauty bloggers with just a tiny link to their sites right at the bottom in the "source".

The Powder Gelee looks very interesting as well as the eye shadows. I don't think they'd look great against my NYC in winter skin, they make me wish I were tan. I'm not a fan of self tanner and I don't bake in the sun either. Maybe I will still try them. :)

I can't hardly wait until you review the Powder Gelee in Heat Wave. It looks like it will be light enough for me too!

Haru, I know! That has happened to me. Instead of leveling that they took the photos off my site, they put "source" in tiny lettering on the bottom right. Better than nothing, I guess! :)

I must have a few pieces from this collection. Must!

Hi Evelyn,

I have a feeling that we pasty gals will look great in that bronzer.

I picked up some of the new Terracotta pieces today. I think you will like them!

Grlnxdor,

You can bet I'm going to be haunting the Web site for that one.
