Treatments (Face) -Estee Lauder -Revitalizing Supreme+ Global Anti-Aging Wake Up Balm

on 12/12/2017 10:58:00 AM

I bought this post partum over a year ago in the hopes it might goose my dragging complexion. It's a gold balm that "significantly improves skin's visible firmness, density and elasticity, and dramatically reduces the look of lines and wrinkles."

As far as I can tell, it adds gold coloring and fragrance. That's it. It was $62.00 and I didn't return it fast enough so now that I have finished a Clinique product, I'm going to finish this next.

This is one of those perfumes where you only need one spritz or you will be suffocating yourself and everyone else around you. It dries down to pure woodsy notes on me which I don't mind but I get an element of something powdery which actually turns me off of the scent. Not one of my favourites, though lasting power and sillage is immensely good.

This does not last!! I inherited a tube of lotion & I love how it smells—creamy musky white floral. I deducted 1 lippie for v poor staying power but the frag itself is beautiful. You could wear this to work or in a place where ur perfume Needs to stay discreet. I can’t imagine too Many finding this offensive. It screams “soccer mum” high end brand new model mini van owner husband, 2.4 kids & a golden retriever. Totally inoffensive . I wish it lasted more than 2 seconds!

Lipstick -Estee Lauder -Pure Color Long-Lasting Lipstick

on 12/9/2017 2:01:00 PM


Honestly, this is a good lipstick, but it's not an "amazing" one.

My issues are:
1. Not long lasting, whatsoever. I personally wear this and if I do anything like drink a glass of water it's completely gone and on the tube. If I do nothing at all, they'll may be last an hour. However, given this is an in-between gloss/lipstick I can't complain too terribly.
2. Don't get me wrong, this is very pretty, but it's also very sheer and I do have to really "make this work" to make it less streaky in some areas of my lips... That being said, it's not THAT bad, it's just a minor problem and my lips are a little hard to work with.

I do recommend this if you are looking for a lipstick with moisturizing properties, that does look pretty, and you don't mind reapplying.
I said "no" if I ran out of this product though because honestly, it is a nice product, but... $30 is a little too much for me to keep repurchasing for a formula that isn't "holy grail" as far as lipstick goes. My repurchasing value goes up just as the price does.

Liquid -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup

I really love this foundation and it is the closest thing to perfect that I can find, which is why I see myself sticking to it for a long time to come. My skin is acne-prone and also very oily.

Shade- a very good match to my fair, neutral skin (I use 1N1).

Coverage- a medium to full coverage. I find it covers my redness and acne/scarring quite well, but a little bit of redness does peek through.

Finish- definitely a matte foundation, although I find it isn't too much of a flat matte. If I don't set it, after about 15-30 minutes it becomes more of a soft matte.

Longevity- this foundation has the longest wear time that I have found on my very oily skin, about 7-9 hours of it looking quite good and me blotting once or twice. If I'm only wearing it for a few hours I've begun to not set my face w powder afterwards which is something unheard of w my skin.

Formula- for me this is the biggest con. I find the liquid to be so thick and set so fast that it can be difficult to work with as it's more time consuming and feels heavier on the skin. It also cannot build on itself- I used to apply a little like concealer over any spots I had, but it would always set much darker than the rest of my face so I would end up having little orange splotches over the places I tried to cover. If you want full coverage you have to go in heavily w it cause once it sets, that's it. However I imagine this is the price one pays for a foundation with such good coverage and decent wear time.

Price- $46CAD is a lot for a foundation, however because you need so little to get the medium coverage I most often go for that to me it's worth it.

Longevity- as a con, my ideal foundation would last for about 12 hours, which this foundation simply cannot do on my oily skin. It just gets way too oily, begins to separate, and can sometimes pool into my pores so it looks like I have freckles of foundation.

Packaging- of course, cause no one likes that it doesn't come w a gd pump lol

I had been on the hunt for a foundation that matched me well, did not break me out, and lasted a long time with my very oily skin for so damn long that for now ELDW is close enough. For now I am pleased with ELDW and very much recommend it to anyone w oily skin (altho my bff has very dry skin and it's her HG!)

This foundation is very full coverage, great for a night out but not for everyday wear. It oxidizes a lot, so if you were to wear it throughout the day I would recommend going 1 or 2 shades lighter. I used it daily for a while and it definitely didn't do my skin any favours.

This one of my HG foundation I have been using it for years blends well into the skin,coverage is finaminal my only draw back is it does not carry a pump.also I am on the hunt for a good replacement because customer service is AWFUL ,and two of the "new face of EL" is a no no..and the "Edit line" ad campaign definately was not my cup of hence sorry no more EL for me..

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


I'd always thought this was my holy grail. After realizing that it breaks me out, I still can't help but give it a good rating. Maybe it's just me that has broken out on this, or maybe it's the way I cleansed. Nevertheless, it is a great foundation that I will save for special occasions.

+ long long long lasting
+ great coverage and smooth look
+ may seem pricey but the whole bottle goes a long way
+ great selection of shades (the only foundation where I got a perfect match)
+ good oil control
+ looks great on photos

- problematic ingredients despite being marketed as comedogenic
- difficult to cleanse from the skin as it is heavy and long-lasting

Concealers -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Stay-in-Place Flawless Wear Concealer

on 12/5/2017 10:28:00 PM


I'm a NC42 and use the shade Medium warm 3W. It's a very yellow/tan concealer which suits me perfectly.
I have to say it goes on lighter on the skin than it looks in the tube. You get the standard 7 ml, for 28$. A little goes long long way so def worth the price!
I got combination skin, get a bit oily on my t-zone throughout the day and normal on the perimeter of my face.
Concealers I own mentioned in order of preference, top choice to bottom: Makeup Store cover all mix - dark, Mac studio fix NW35, Tarte shape tape-medium, Maybelline Master conceal - 40 medium, Maybelline Age rewind and Fit me- 25 Medium, Collection 2000-Deep

Comes in a small glass bottle tube. Classy and simple with a gold-handle applicator. Doesn't look like cheap nor super expensive. Simple and classy, very Estee Lauder like. I like!

I only use these for my undereyes as it's too light to use allover to spot conceal. If I found a shade for doing that I would buy it for that too. I don't really like too much of a stark bright undereye, but I do enjoy a healthy smooth bright look. This really covers everything beautifully and dries down to a matte finish. It sets fast so work in sections. I don't need to set it with a powder at all. I found that if I do that, it accentuate my fine lines and cracks I never knew I had. It also does not crease and stays put ALL day long. Big plus for the SPF10.

A little goes a long way. It doesn't hurt to moisturize to prep as it sets so fast and very matte. It's so pigmented and creamy. Using the warmth of your fingers works as well as using a brush. I'd say it has a quite thick consistency. I think that's what helps with the coverage of this concealer. It's formulated with minerals and emollients to condition the skin. It's oil free and feels great on the skin. It's just perfect. Very easy to blend and little doe-foot applicator makes it hygienic, super easy and convenient to use. It

It smells a bit like paint, nothing too strong. If you own the EL Stay all day foundation you'll know exactly what I mean, they smell the same. The good things is that it doesn't linger. But you can't really smell it if you don't put the nose against the product itself.

Only downside is the shade selection. I don't think everyone could find a shade match, since they only offer 10 shades. If you have dry skin I think you'll need to prep and moisturize before.

I was debating beween this and Nars. I tried the Nars 3 times and it felt too heavy and dry on me so I opted for this one. So happy I did, it's also cheaper than Nars, win win!

This concealer is a must have! I think this is awesome, love this so much. One of the best concealer I ever tried! Couldn't recommend it enough. From all the concealers I own this concealer takes a proud 1st place!

*Makeup store Cover all mix concealer Dark = My all time favorite cream pot concealer.
Perfect to spot conceal, great staying power, pigmented, perfect for all around use.
*Mac Studio fix concealer NC35= Great pot concealer. Amazing staying power. Perfect to spot conceal and cover darkness.
*Maybelline Master conceal Medium 40= A bit too light but work ok for quick touch ups. Not the best staying power though.
*Maybelline Age rewind Medium= Same as the Master conceal.
*Maybelline Fit me 25 medium= Too light and not pigmented enough, too emollient. Bad staying power.
*Sonia kashuk creamy concealer 02= Not pigmented enough and bad staying power.
*Revlon Photoready stick concealer medium = Not pigmented enough. Bit greasy, bad staying power.
*Mac Prolong concealer NC35 = Easy the work with, pigmented and long lasting. One of my favorites.
*Milani sercret cover concealer = Too waxy, hard to work with and bad pigmentation.

I got this as a gift from a friend who didn't like the product for her skin. I was really happy with it, being that the product was so famous and expensive, I would never buy it myself. But unfortunately, I'll have to give it away. My face reacts really badly when I put this on. My face got red, a bit swollen under my eyes and felt like it was on fire. Such a shame!

Finally tried this much hyped foundation. Luckily I got a sample and didn't purchase because it did not work for me. I got matched to the color Rattan, which matched my skin perfectly. I tried this three different times and was disappointed all three times. First used it without a primer, then with the Smashbox primer, then with the Dr. Brandt Primer and it made no difference at all. By the three hour mark, it had gathered in creases that I didn't know I had! No other foundation that I currently use (itCosmetics CC cream, Revlon Age Defying and YSL) has ever done that. Very disappointing.

Mascara -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Zero Smudge Lengthening Mascara

on 12/2/2017 4:36:00 PM


This is a drier formula than I would have expected for a tubing mascara. It does indeed give some serious length to your lashes but as with other tubing style mascaras, very little in the way of volume. The most disappointing thing about this mascara is that within minutes I saw little black flecks under my eyes from the product flaking off and it only got worse as time went on. The flakes are pretty stubborn as well because I had a heck of time getting them off my face when I removed my makeup. I don’t know if this is typical or if maybe my tube was a bad batch, drier than it normally is? Regardless, for $33CDN I am not impressed with having to sweep away black flecks while wearing this mascara. I get better effects from L’Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes mascara and it’s less than a third of the price. That one comes with a primer so you actually get both volume and length. This ELDW mascara is not worth the money and I will not be repurchasing it.

I got this as a gift with purchase and it's now my favorite lipstick I own. The color is a beautiful hot pink/fuchsia and the staying power is....OMG....unreal. It literally lasts 9 hours and that's through lunch. LOVE!

This foundation gives execellent coverage, lasts all day long without being touched up and doesn't look cakey.

I wear the shade 1N1 Ivory nude, though could probably get away with a lighter shade now coming into the winter.

I've rated the packaging less as it does not come with a pump, but the bottle itself is lovely.
