Eyeliner -Estee Lauder - Little Black Liner

My HG liner pen! I don't normally like pens. This & Katvond only onles I like coz They dry out easily on me & I need to store them tip down (which end should I store down lol i keep it horizontal in my bag, this 1). I use the thin line for my inner corner of eye & the fat tip for a wing if I do a wing. I still can't do decent wings but this comes close. It's pretty waterproof & on me doesn't bleed or run. It was expensive like $30 or so but I got the EL GWP at Macy's. I've had it forever. It's inky black. I would say a year. I do really tiny wings.



BB Cream -Estee Lauder - DayWear BB Anti-Oxidant Beauty Benefit Creme SPF 35

I was just looking for a product with a trusted SPF50 rating and I love Estee Lauder products so I thought I'd give this a go. I didn't wear anything on my skin before this and now I feel naked without it.

It isn't full coverage (its not a foundation) but does give you a glow and basically just evens out your skin, hides redness/dull skin. Its also great in that I go from fair to medium in the sun and the product adapts to my skin tone.

If you have skin that becomes oily throughout the day you might need powder/blotting for shine.


Powder -Estee Lauder - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Powder Makeup

I think we are twins with previous reviewer.
I'm buying this foundation since 2008, always the same Pebble color (plus two darker shades). Before EL reformulated Double Wear in 2014 I was able to use this powder almost all year long, except summer holiday / post-holiday period when my face gets tanned. Now the shade looks good on me only in wither months, when my medium skin is more pale. But apart of the shade change it's perfect, better than original formula.

Pros:
- light to medium buildable coverage
- fast application (easy to do on the go, I use brush to apply it and my application is finished in 1 minute)
- almost invisible (I don't know any other foundation / powder that looks as close to skin as this one), my face looks like a slightly photoshopped version of itself not like a made up completion
- long lasting (on my normal dehydrated skin it lasts true 8 hours)
- doesn't brake out my extremely sensitive skin, I wear it every day when I wear makeup (I used to love Double Wear light foundation, but after latest reformulation can't use it anymore)
- doesn't dry out my skin and doesn't feel like a powder

Cons:
- I don't like that after each reformulation EL messing up with their shades and undertones, you have to know when something got reformulated to be sure that the product will match your expectations


Liquid -Estee Lauder - Double Wear Stay in place Makeup

I'm currently on the hunt for my holy grail foundation. Is this double wear foundation it? Well let's discuss a few things first. I have dry, sensitive skin and I was looking for a foundation that will stay on my face and not budge. Now this foundation has a medium to full coverage, depending on how much you apply, how you apply and how much you layer it. If you're looking for a more 'natural' look, using a sponge will help sheer it out. Keep in mind though, that this foundation is not for those who want that 'i'm not wearing any foundation look', because it will look like you're wearing makeup. The consistency is also runny and it will also oxidize slightly (whether this is a good or a bad thing is up to you, but it was a good thing for me because my colour was slight too light at the beginning).

Now I've also read a lot of reviews saying that this isn't for sensitive skin, or acne-prone skin because of its staying power. It claims to stay on for 24 hours, so you can assume that this foundation will stick to your face. I can see how people break out from the foundation, but really, you just need to make sure you are cleansing your face thoroughly. One makeup wipe isn't going to cut it, so make sure you properly wash your face. I also found that exfoliating the day before wearing this foundation will also help the application and overall look of the foundation.

Nevertheless, I tried this foundation as a sample. I applied with both a brush and sponge and found that the sponge worked better. I tend to go for a medium coverage with this foundation, and the finish is maybe a satin matte finish? Not dewy nor matte.I will say though, for all you dry skin people out there, make sure you moisturize your skin and exfoliate, because it can tend to look cakey around those dry areas. I also found that it caked my pores around my nose and creased in my smile lines. For someone like me who generally has smooth skin, this accentuated the textures on my skin, especially the areas around my nose and chin. Now for the fun part. I tested this in harsh conditions. Literally wore this for over 24 hours. (I do not recommend wearing makeup for more than 12 hours anyway), but I did. My day consisted of going to uni, then going out all night. I did do a check in around the 7 hour mark and found that my makeup was looking a bit cakey. Around the 12 hour mark, my makeup was looking horrible and cakey all over (wasnt shiny though) but my foundation was definitely separating around my nose. At the 24 hour mark, my foundation basically rubbed off around my cheek areas and just looked bad all over.
Of course, I don't do this regularly nor would i recommend others to do this, but i thought that this was the perfect foundation to test out, especially if it claims to stay on for 24 hours. Overall, I think it does a good job staying on for 8 hours. But 24 hours? no way. It also accentuates the texture of your skin, and apparently the bottle doesn't come with a pump.
Honestly, the best way to get a sense of whether this foundation is for you is to get a sample yourself. Some people with dry skin love this while others hate this. For me, I don't love it but I don't hate it either. I would probably wear this for days where I know there will be photos or maybe for nights out, but for everyday? Well I probably wouldn't wear this as an 'everyday' foundation. Do give it a go though and get a sample because everyone has a different opinion and who knows, this might be the perfect foundation for you

Liquid -Estee Lauder - Double Wear [old formula - REFORMULATED]

Another HG product! Double wear foundation is a medium to full coverage foundation which can be used daily. Its matte for me and has a decent staying powder. I use the shade tawny which is a good match for my skin tone. My friends say that this foundation covers my pores and makes my skin look really good while not even seeming medium or full coverage which is a great thing. I also use NARS sheer glow and Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk. In comparison, this lasts the longest while luminous silk doesn't last as well. NARS gives the best glow to my skin while luminous silk is the moooost natural looking and the smoothest. So I use all of them for different purposes. A point to note is that the shades look very different from each other in the bottle so maybe that't why some look more natural or glowly than the others.

As this product lasts pretty long and has a good coverage, just be careful of removing it really well as it might clog your pores if you don't remove it well before sleeping or something.
