Would not buy again. I have the black gel liner and it is not the blackest. It does not stay in place, unless I mix it with Inglots duraline. I do continue to wear it because I have the duraline but I am so disappointment in the pigmentation that I would definitely not buy this again

I love the foundation itself. It is literally the only foundation that sticks to my oil slick face. I can make this look natural, applied either with buffing brush or beauty blender. I have been using this for about 8years and have yet to find something else I prefer. I do dislike that it doesnt come with a pump, but I just decant into another bottle. I will say it is harsh to wear constantly like I have been and trying to reduce the amount of daily wear. If you have oily skin and need a good foundation, I do recommend it. This covers my redness from thread veins. It can plog pores though, so make sure it is removed each night.

I was rooting for this product but it's a massive disappointment. I'm a fan of the original DWs lasting power, but I hated the powdery mask effect it gave me so I held off on buying a bottle of that in search of something that little better. When the lady at the counter told me about this I jumped at the chance to try a sample, but even wandering around the shops straight after she applied it to my skin I noticed it felt tacky, something I absolutely cannot stand in the slightest. It took a long time to dry down to a drier finish, but my oily skin was not controlled whatsoever. I've used my sample a fair few times, with primers, without primers, in sunny conditions, in cloudy and rain but this stuff just doesn't stay on my skin. It's such a shame because I love how it looks in the beginning, sheer, but enough to cover old acne scars and most of my rosacea, but still natural and untraceable on the skin. I really hope they rethink the formula with this in the future, because if it had the lasting power of DW it would be my hg foundation.

This is a great light coverage foundation with UVA/UVB protection. Desert Beige is perfect for my light warm complexion. Doesn't make my face dry or oily, doesn't oxidize. I agree that the packaging is not the best, it needs a pump, but I just dispense it carefully and have no problems.

Not a fan! Felt more oily than watery on me. I’ve used this for a month and didn’t notice a difference. More oily than the Lancôme one but not in love with that one either.

I have the shade Ripe which is a deep berry shade with a bit of purple tone and has shimmer in it. Application - it’s sticky. Very sticky. I never apply too much of it because it’s very pigmented and may feel heavy to put more than one coat. It’s true that it feathers and so I only apply it in the middle and blend it out. Stays on fairly well for at least 4 hours if you don’t drink, won’t transfer to cups if you let it dry completely, but definitely transfers if you eat. Still leaves a stain behind after that. The finish is shiny but not glossy, but again I only apply a very thin layer. The only downside is that my lips tingles every time I put it on!!!!!!

I've been using it for years and there is no foundation on the market to get even close... and I' ve tried ! Still, it has its secrets: 1. The skin should be well moisturized. 2. Using mattifing moisturises is a NO GO - the foundation would look awfully cakey. 3. Cover the mouth of the bottle with your finger and turn it upside down - this should be a "shot"; max 3 will do. 4. It is important to spread it rather quickly allover the face, cause it kind of dries during the process. 5. I find the building up is a bad ideea - in my experience, 1 layer/ application is enough. Red spots and other defaults should be treated "on spot", discreetly.
Once you find its ways/ secrets, you become addicted to it. :-) <3 it !

Skincare - Face -Estee Lauder - Perfectly Clean Foam Cleanser/Purifying Mask

foto

One of my favourite all time cleansers, Estee Lauder has done it again with this rich creamy luxurious foam cleanser that produces copious amount of foam with the smallest squeeze of cleanser. This may be a bit too drying for drier skins so please be wary, however for those with Normal to Combination/Oily skins this is just fine. I like to use the Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean Creme Cleanser in the morning and this one at night. After removing makeup with the Advanced MIcro Cleansing Balm I then follow with this, it is just heaven! The smell is a deliciously refreshing crisp cucumber scent that is not too heavy.

PRO'S

Removes makeup swiftly
Doesn't leave skin feeling dry
Produces copious amount of foam
Lasts very long time
Travels well

CON'S

None

This foundation was a fail for me. I usually wear a TM but wanted something with a bit more coverage for the holiday season so I went and got shade matched at an EL counter for this. The first failure was the match I was given from their handheld. Way way too light the S.A. was super confused and started trying to eyeball match to my skin tone. I'm usually about a L-Medium neutral shade in the winter in most foundations. We chose 3N1 as the closest match in the horrendous lighting. There was no samples available for the color match guaranty so I bought the full size and kept the receipt. Thank god.
I had to return it within 48 hours. It had a nice satin finish and solid medium coverage but the color was off and too orangey. I tried getting rematched to a better color but nothing seemed to work well. I also think that this may have broken me out. Nice finish but I just couldn't make it work

Mascara -Estee Lauder - Sumptuous Extreme

I love Estee Lauder products, but I have never had any of their mascaras work for me. I was excited to try this formula. It is very black, nice wand, but this is a very liquid formula that transfers, have you qtip ready. I applied multiple layers trying to get voluminous flashes, but I did not get volume. I thought this was a volumizing formula? It is not even with multiple coats applied.

I have very straight eyelashes that stick straight out. I use an eye curler after I heat it up with a blow dryer to get my lashes to curl. I hold the curler there till it cools off and my lashes curl and are very long, but as soon as I apply this mascara, my lashes fall and go back to bone straight. I think the product is too heavy for my lashes. And it clumps no matter how much I wipe off before application.

If you have natural curly lashes and want them to go straight try this formula. If you are like me, save your money and get YSL mascara. This formula keeps my lashes curly all day and clump free.

Love the wide range of colors! Really like the finish and how long lasting it is. But there is one BUT - it doesn't look good on my nose as my skin gets oily it leaves dots on my nose. So I'm not sure if I will continue using it


Treatments (Face) -Estee Lauder - Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex [REFORMULATED]

I had first used Advanced Night Repair when I was in my mid-twenties. Having few skin concerns back then (and not noticing much improvement), I stopped using the expensive product after the first bottle so I could free up cash for more "fun" cosmetics like lipstick!

Fast forward to today, I'm 44-years-old. Now that I am noticing less radiance, a rougher skin texture, some fine lines around my eyes, between my brows, and along nasolabial folds, I'm much more influenced to spend money on skin care rather than "fun" cosmetics. Remembering how my older friends had raved about Advanced Night Repair when I was still in my twenties, I thought I'd revisit the product.

Being frugal, I was happy to find this miraculous formula in a small, inexpensive trial-size at Ulta for a lot less money than the full-sized bottle. I bought the little bottle last week, and started using it right away, only at nighttime after cleansing. Amazingly, I noticed improved skin texture and radiance the very next morning, after only one use! I have been faithfully using the product each night now, for a total of about six nights. The fine lines between my brows are no longer visible, even with a magnifying mirror. Though still present, my nasolabial lines are much less distinct. The texture of skin beneath my eyes is noticeably smoother and tighter, with no visible lines. Old acne scars have faded to almost nothing, to the point where a very light BB cream conceals them. My husband has been complimenting me more than usual, saying that my skin is glowing and so soft. (A waitress this week told my husband that his daughter is so pretty! Haha! I'm only 8 years younger than my husband, so she was embarrassed when she learned that I'm his wife, not his daughter.)

Needless to say, I will be purchasing the full-sized bottle next week and using it religiously for the foreseeable future!

A word of advice to youngsters out there: Go ahead and spend money on good skincare now, so that you have a head start on your complexion concerns that present at a later date. Remember your sunscreen EVERY single day, whether you're spending time outside or not. Don't wait until you see wrinkles before you start addressing them. They're harder to eliminate once they appear.

The shade is a perfect match which normally is quite a struggle for me. I have combination skin with a few dry spots and some imperfections such as pimples and a few acne scars.

First of all, the packaging sucks. No pump?! How am I supposed to get the foundation out without wasting product? Nope, that's just dumb.

I used this foundation with a primer, a quite cheap drugstore primer that I use on an every day basis. As for the formula I find it a tad too thick but it blends really well on my skin. I used a damp beauty blender and it worked really well. I guess a thick formula is to expect when it is supposed to stay put for 10+ hours.

It's very buildable and the coverage ranges from ligh to heavy. I prefer a medium coverage so I used two layers. With this product you benefit from building it up gradually as opposed to using one thick layer.

After two layers I still need to use a concealer for spot touch up as I have a tiny bit of acne and the red spots are coming through.

I can really feel the foundation on my face which as a problem for me. I don't like the feeling of having a mask on and this feels really heavy.

Overall this is not ideal for me. It's a good product and my skin looks really good, almost like it's my own skin, but the feeling of the product on my skin really kills it for me. Normally I use the Estee lauder double wear cushion stick which I really LOVE so I automatically thought that the products would be similar only this one providing a bit more coverage. Nope, I still need my concealer here!

I put it on at 10 am and now it's 5 pm. The foundation still looks flawless! No cracking, no oxidation and it hasn't sunken into my pores. It looks really good! The mask-like feeling hasn't gone away and I constantly get reminded of having foundation on. If that is not a problem for you this is a really rad product! I think I will use this for special occasions when I want to look flawless without touching up.


PROS:
- Shade is a perfect match
- Looks really natural even after two layers
- A variation of coverage
- Blends really well
- Photographs well
- Doesn't oxide
- as promised it does hold for a really long time

CONS:
- No pump
- my face feels heavy with product
- The price
- Doesn't cover acne redness
- Thick formula
