Primer/ Corrector -Estee Lauder -Illuminating Perfecting Primer

foto

There is absolutely nothing illuminating about this, didn’t do any of the skin improving claims it makes either.
I got this to try under the doublewear max because I love the max but it’s too matte and a tad drying for me. Tried it a few times and it didn’t provide any illuminating benefits at all. I shook the tube real good thinking the “illuminating” ingredients were maybe settled or not mixed well, but nope. Nothing. It’s not at all hydrating or pore smooting either. Returned!

Lipstick -Estee Lauder -Pure Color Lipstick in 'Pinkberry'

on 6/21/2018 7:28:00 AM

First of all, I love the formula of the EL Pure Envy lipsticks. It is a perfect mix of hydration with decent lasting power. When it wears off, it just becomes more and more subtle. Other brands I find as they wear off get almost funky in color and just look awful - not with the EL lipsticks.

The color of this is just as the name suggests - a beautiful pink with berry undertone. So if you have cool undertones and are looking for an everyday MLBB pink - this is it! It doesn’t come across screaming or too bright - just very natural looking.

My other favorite cool MLBB but a bit deeper in color is EL Irresistible.

No matter what other lipsticks I try - these 2 are my all time favorites.

Treatments (Face) -Estee Lauder -Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II

I only used this 2x and got instant irritation. Almost like a rash. My skin is combo-dry and prone to perioral dermatitis and SD so most likely it was the yeast ingredients in this. I would be wary if you also suffer from fungal irritation.

Moisturizers -Estee Lauder -Estee Lauder Revitalizing Supreme + Global Anti-aging Cell Power Creme

on 6/20/2018 9:28:00 PM

I have been on a face cream mission for months now and this is the one... I have mildly sensitive skin and fragrances are usually a big NO for me. This cream has NO Fragrance smell, it is heavy enough that I use a little more at night before bed, but light enough to use it in the morning as well. I don't want to believe in serums, although I have been told they are beneficial and I did purchase it, but I use the separate serum at night so far and not in the AM. So far no con's. It absorbs pretty quickly.

** Background: I am a long time user of "Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream" but wanted to try something else. I went to "Lancome Renergie Lift Multi-Action Cream" which after a whole container I didn't notice much different. I then went to "Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion " which after 3 days of use left me with a chemical burn, swelling, pain etc for about 4 weeks. I took some time off of face creams fearing to try another one. A few weeks ago I came across a very knowledgeable "Estee Lauder" Rep who gave me some options. I ended up purchasing "Estee Lauder Advanced Time Zone" which I immediately noticed has a strong fragrance smell, but I used it with the day serum. After about 4-5 days of use I just noticed my face starting to break out, which is not common. The smell also started getting to me. So I discontinued use and returned. I then tried this product...

Moisturizers -Estee Lauder -DayWear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Creme Broad Spectrum SPF 15

foto

Upon entering my 30's I found my old skin care regime was no longer catering to ageing skin concerns, such as wrinkle-prevention and hydration, so I gave the Advanced Multi-Protection moisturisers (day and night) a try after buying a 'trial' size of the day cream. After three days using the moisturiser (with the Advanced Night Micro-Foaming Cleanser) my skin was incredibly/unbelievably soft to touch, moreover my skin looked smoother and more radiant (so I was told!). I would recommend this to anyone looking for a light and non-irritating product to revitalise dull and rough skin!

I have not given the product a full 5* as I did find during the very harsh winter months when temperatures hit sub-zero, the hydration of the product does not penetrate deep enough to prevent dry patches on my face drying out and requiring me to use heavier moisturisers on these areas.


Treatments (Face) -Estee Lauder -Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher

foto

I have used Idealist since it was first introduced many years ago. An Estee Lauder rep at a department store gave my friend and I a sample to try, and as soon as I felt how silky it was on my skin, I was sold.

I have very enlarged pores from years of oily, acne-prone skin, and this is the only product I have found that truly softens and improves the texture of my skin. Not only does it help reduce pores, it eliminates dry, flaky patches as well. I rarely use a moisturizer, as Idealist does the trick for me. It leaves a velvety-soft matte texture that is a perfect primer for make-up. If I ever try to go without Idealist, I am amazed at how much rougher my skin feels, and how make-up "drags" rather than gliding on smoothly.

Idealist has been my #1 beauty staple for too many years to count! I just purchased the large size once again, and though it's pricey, a little goes a long way and usually lasts me nearly a year. Guess that will have to suffice until they come out with the gallon-jug size!

Palettes -Estee Lauder -Bronze Goddess The Summer Look Palette

on 6/17/2018 3:41:00 PM

foto

This palette is part of the Estee Lauder 2018 Bronze Goddess summer collection. It comes in a round, fairly large (but not too large) compact with a bronze and cream exterior and a turquoise clasp: inside, continuing the bronze and turquoise theme, are a blush, a highlighter and six eye shadows, all of them powders. The blush is a matte warm pink and the highlighter is a shimmery champagne; the shadows are a matte ivory, a shimmery peachy light brown, a shimmery bronze medium brown, a matte warm dark brown, a shimmery light aqua and a matte dark turquoise. The mirror is a generous size; there are no applicators, but I don't mind, since the applicators which come with compacts are usually useless. The palette is very versatile and you can create a number of different looks for day and evening, so it's perfect a summer weekend getaway (or a longer vacation if you like to travel light. The quality is very good. All in all, even though this was an impulse purchase, I'm very happy I bought this and it will get a lot of use this summer.

Treatments (Eye) -Estee Lauder -Advanced Night Repair Eye Recovery Complex

foto

This is my 4th purchase of this product. I use it day and night under a heavier eye cream. I am 40 years-old and am learning what is meant when said "Everything goes south as you age." I am starting to see sagging and all of those other wonderful multiple signs of aging in my face–fine lines, deep wrinkles, uneven skin tone, etc. I've noticed that youthful look under my eyes is something I only see in old pictures. Although I know I can't beat the inevitable effects of aging, I am a proactive member of trying to delay and fight it as much as possible.

I've used this product for a few years, while taking a break and using other products in between to compare the benefits, and yes, I do see results. I wish I could say it is the fountain of youth and what free radicals and aging has done to my skin was significantly diminished, I can't. As I've said, I have to use it with other eye creams (one for the night and one for the day). I can say it is a good product, as most of Estée Lauder's products are, but, again, I tried other products before repurchasing this one and I'm not sold on it doing all it claims to do. As mentioned, I purchased this for the 4th time to compare it to other products such as Lancolm, Mybody, Clinique, and drugstore brands that I have tried.

If you have the money, I would recommend this product as you will have to continue to buy it. If you're on a budget and this is a treat for you, ask a representative who can look at your skin and suggest what product(s) would be best for your skin.

To give an idea of my skin type, I am Caucasian, fair (as I do not go without sunscreen), I have noticeable pores, a tendency to break out and get oily throughout the day. I never go without a night and day moisturizer. I use both a BB/CC Creme and foundation, as well as a finishing powder and setting spray. My go to look is natural. I don't use a lot of makeup, but wouldn't dare leave my house without "putting my face on" applying a thin line of eyeliner and mascara

Liquid -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup

on 6/16/2018 3:40:00 PM

If you're looking for transfer resistant, look no further. This stuff does not budge! I was recommended this quite a few times as I'm always in search of full coverage for my cystic acne and redness. Some days it would cover everything, other bad skin days id need more. This foundation really oxidizes more than any other I've used. Unfortunately, this did make my acne worse with regular use, and really clinged to acne scars/healing acne, but I kept the bottle for occasional days/nights that I wanted a transfer resistant foundation which is always nice to have! Mixing with a lighter concealer has helped the oxidizing issue slightly. It looks amazing when first applied, however throughout the day, I notice it really catching any dry spots or textured areas. This foundation would be great for those who only have redness! Wouldn't recommend to anyone with textured skin. Definite down side is the packaging. I feel that it is messy when having to pour it out of the bottle!

I love this: it can be sheer or high coverage, looks natural and lasts all day. The perfect shade match, does not oxidize. I just need a pump dispenser please

I really really wanted to love this foundation but I had issues with it.

The first problem was the colour matching - I was matched to Pale Almond which I bought a whole bottle of, but it's just too dark and too pink. I went to a different store and the SA gave me a generous sample of Desert Beige, which was so nice of her. Unfortunately this was too pale and too yellow. Looking at the shade range I find it totally baffling.

The staying power is amazing. I applied it with a damp beauty blender working fast and kind of bouncing it in.

It really is like paint, and that's another problem for me. It creates such a uniform finish (like paint!) that instead of covering uneven skin it seemed to make it more obvious! It just seemed to highlight every uneven feature because of the flat, paint-like finish. I've since tried Max Factor Lasting Performance foundation and I actually prefer that, and it's cheaper. I might give Double Wear Light a try though - always on the search for the perfect foundation!

I hate the fact that it's not in a tube or that it doesn't have a pump top, especially considering how expensive it is. And it's runny so too easy to waste it.

I just don’t like this foundation and I really tried to. It’s like house paint! I tried to use it as sparingly as possible and it just made me look old and tired. I don’t think it leaves a flattering finish at all! I’m super oily and break through every foundation, but this was like sludge by the 4 hour mark. One of the worst I’ve used. Drying too.

I heard a lot of positive reviews on this product before, but one had to appreciate it personally. Advanced Night Repair Serum I won almost everything and immediately.In the hands of me got sensational serum Estee Lauder Advanced Repair Synchrolized Recovery Complex II (with a new and improved formula, namely, with the addition of 2 new ingredients: propanediol and hydrolyzed algin to the already available as part of Estee Lauder Advanced Repair Synchrolized Recovery Complex)Let's start with the fact that it has the means unrealistic pleasant, silky and ultra-light texture. Little drops enough for the entire face. The means to stay up perfectly, instantly absorbed, filling and excellent moisturizing skin. The skin becomes velvety and gets a sleek look. I remember when it first struck, it seemed to me that the serum immediately satiated and moisturize the skin, I do not even want to put the cream on top.Serum is virtually invisible and elusive scent. Fragrance pleasant, reminds me of the smell of bread, diluted kakimi- the spirits.Serum is very economical. I have a miniature, which I use for a month, but a means, and not come to half, almost complete jar. Naturally, this is a big plus, but it is necessary to take into account the price, which, to put it mildly, bite ...Serum Estee Lauder, of course, is good, but it seemed to me, it has only instant results. It instantly nourishes and feeds the skin, absorbs quickly, leaving no greasy residue, no feeling of the film. As for wrinkles, I can say that after 1 month of daily use serum, facial wrinkles smoothed out a bit and were filled with moisture, making them visually less noticeable. Hopefully, after extended use, the result will be accumulated, not merely maintained. If you beloved readers will be interested, write the questions and I am happy to add to this post on the results of the use of serum for a longer time.


Primer/ Corrector -Estee Lauder -Matte Perfecting Primer

foto

Hands down this primer is a winner. I am not a fan of primers make my skin feel oily and shiney. They also tend to break my face out. I am so happy I came across this primer. It is perfect. It dries almost immediately which is a HUGE plus for me. I have very little time in the mornings and waiting to put on my foundation isn't an option. With this primer I can apply and go straight to my foundation. It works so well to prolong my already long wear double wear light. It keeps my "T" zone oil free all day and evening. I don't have to touch things up at all during the day. As much as I love my double wear light, worn without primer it doesn't last as long as I would like. This primer gives it a boost and I'm totally loving the combination. Highly recommend this primer if you are like me, prone to breakouts and like a more matte to satin look.

Moisturizers -Estee Lauder -Verite Moisture Relief Cream

foto

I have used Verite for a few years and appreciate its basic, clean (very slight scent of tea tree in my opinion), moisturizing blandness. Don't take blandness as a bad thing, for those with sensitive skin, this is a must!

It is my trusty, go-to moisturizer to get my skin back on track with essential, non-pore-clogging moisture after I make the poor decision to experiment with something new in my skin care regime that is shiny, new and inevitably irritating to my complexion.

I love trying new products, can't help myself, but my skin often times lets me know that, "I'm sensitive! Go back to Verite!"
