Mascara -Estee Lauder -Sumptuous knockout defining lift and fan mascara

on 9/8/2017 9:56:00 AM


I'm not sure what you guys are talking about, but this may be the best formula out there. I think this may have got my lashes the longest they've ever been. they are so sky high they practically have a jet stream when I blink (check out my pics above). Awesome overall mascara. Long, thick, and separated. Go easy with how much formula goes on the brush, not that much is needed. I use multiple coasts but I keep them light. Will keep buying!

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

on 9/7/2017 11:50:00 PM


I really want to love this foundation but it never works out for my dry to combination skin no matter how much I try to find away to make my skin love it. I believe in this foundation but no matter how many tries I do to give it a chance, it disappoints me.

-wide range of shades
-medium to full coverage
-good for oily
-doesn't clog pores

-looks flakey especially if you did not exfoliate before applying
-if you are dry skin you might want to double or triple moisturise
-heavy to look at on skin
-clings on dry patches
-others might prefer the bottle to go with a pump

Tinted Moisturizer -Estee Lauder -Enlighten Even Effect Skintone Corrector SPF 30

on 9/7/2017 11:09:00 AM


The cream is nice, is has a really faint scent and it feels like you're not wearing anything on your face. It gives very light coverage, so it makes you look better but you'd still need to use a concealer on your dark circles, for example. Nice but overpriced.

Liquid -Estee Lauder -Perfectionist Youth-Infusing Makeup SPF 25


Dealing with aging skin is a bit tricky and finding a foundation that will work for dry combination skin is a hit or miss at times.
I am a big fan of Estee Lauder's line of foundations, I have the regular Double Wear and Double Wear Light. But sometimes, I find that its too matte for my taste especially that the colder months is just around the corner.

So I decided to give this foundation a try and I must say that I am impressed.

Shade: I am between MAC NC 20 - NC 25 and the shade 2N1 Dessert Beige matches me ok. It is a hair light for my skin right now but will match better during the winter months.

Finish: It has a natural finish, not dewy or matte. Perfect for aging skin.

Coverage: Light to medium. May need a concealer for under eye and blemishes

Packaging; It has a pump!

Price: a bit pricey but if you are willing to invest on good makeup, I think it's worth it.

Overall, I am satisfied with this foundation. It is a great for everyday and did I say it has a built in SPF.

Hope this helps!

Lipstick -Estee Lauder -Pure Color Envy Sheer Matte Sculpting Lipstick - 220 Fresh Danger


I've been looking for that perfect coral colour for aaaaaages - not too bright, doesn't turn orange/pink on me in a few hours. The closest was Smashbox Baja Bound, but on my lips it looks completely different, just so *orange*.

I was trying foundation at the EL counter and the lady asked me if there was anything else I wanted. I mentioned this Quest for Coral. She matched me with this and HOLY COW it's perfect! It's what I wanted Baja Bound to be like! It's just the perfect colour on. Although it's marketed as 'sheer' it is easily buildable.

Creamy formula
Nice, luxe packaging
PERFECT colour!
I dig the 'sheer matte' formula - not something I've ever had before

Doesn't last especially long
Has an odd fragrance which I don't particularly like

All in all, I really like this colour. I have also bought a similar cremesheen from Mac (Crosswires) but this one is just that little bit muted so better for day wear. Both together they are powerful!

This colour might not be for everyone, if you're not used to fairly bright colours it might be too much, but if you're after a pinky coral then this might work for you. The formula is creamy as well and not drying so it's a good middle ground if like me, you prefer a matte finish but whose lips can't handle liquid lipstick.

I may not buy this one again, but I'd like to try others in the range.

Foundations -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Maximum Cover Camouflage Makeup For Face & Body

on 9/7/2017 8:08:00 AM


At first I was really excited to get this foundation because of all the good reviews. I ordered the lightest shade and it was a weird, salmon color that made me look orange. The coverage was ok, not something great but it looked cakey af. I wore it instead of my nornal foundation and even my bf asked what's wrong with my face and why it has a weird texture. I regret spending my money on this since it's really expensive.

Liquid -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 30

on 9/6/2017 5:05:00 PM


I am a Aussie girl and had to have this shipped from the U.S, we don't get this product till the end of December. I am re entering the workforce and don't wear heavy makeup every day. I like to keep my skin make up free at home, but when working that ain't going to happen. So I invested in this light weight foundation. I love it! Very natural looking, evens out skin tone. On my normal skin it looks fantastic and hydrates it. It's a light to light medium coverage. Too many people are making the mistake of using a beauty blender or brush with this. Don't! Use your fingers and you get a beautiful finish. It's a water based foundation using utensils will alter the real performance of this foundation. The amount of so called beauty gurus that apply this with a sponge or brush is crazy! The only way to apply is with your fingers just like the instructions say and just like Wayne GOSS did. It also irritates me when someone with problematic skin uses this then wines about it not covering up their spots, the foundation is a light sheer foundation it is not meant to give you a full coverage, nor is it ideal for extremely oily skin, this is a hydrating formula. Finally a foundation that is geared to normal to dry skin! This not expensive either. In Australia we pay $30 for drug store foundations paying a extra $20 for something more high end is fine.
If you have oily skin and acne this is not for you. my pet peeve is people complaining that it does not keep there face matt, it's not meant to, it is a MOSTURISING foundation. oily skin people have foundations galore to pick, us normal to slightly dry do not. This is for us and it's about time we were catered for. Absolutely love it.
My skin is normal to slightly dry I have no acne, I have freckles and some sun spots.

Liquid -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup


EDIT: I don't know if this is just my skin, but the more I've worn it, the more I can't wait to get it off my face. It feels like a mask I can't wait to remove. Also - and this is weird - the full bottle seems to either turn reddish on my skin, or maybe I'm just blending out really sheer? Either way, I've put it to one side having used the full bottle for less than a week and have replaced with Fenty Beauty. I have to say, I didn't experience this issue with the sample I got so I don't know what the issue is. I've changed my review because of these issues and have left at a 2 lippie score because generously I think maybe it's user error and I just haven't found the best method of application for my skin.
If you've seen my other reviews, you can see I've been on the hunt for a good full coverage foundation that doesn't slip off my face, irritate my rosacea, or separate and go grainy over the course of the day. This one is a winner all round, and I'm SO surprised because I just thought it wouldn't suit me at all.

My colour is Cool Bone which I think is the lightest. I got matched to Almond before which was odd - but Cool Bone is great. Doesn't oxidise and while I'm expecting flashback it's not something I'm especially worried about.

I dot all over my face and then blend with a damp RT sponge and it gives a really beautiful finish. For me, I don't think it gives a mask-like look; I don't know if that's because I'm using less than the beauty gurus I've watched on YouTube, my technique, or maybe just that the rosacea is peeking through and giving a 'natural' flush. Either way, it looks good. I can layer over the really red bits if needs be.

It's creamy and blends really well, it doesn't seem to dry down like for e.g. the Lock It foundation. I dust some Velvetizer finishing powder over the top and I'm genuinely flawless. While my skin requires a blotting by the end of the day, it's nothing I can't handle and doesn't look disgusting if I don't bother. Even the oils breaking through don't seem to disturb the make up which is EXACTLY what I was looking for! And even on my dryer bits, it didn't feel uncomfortable at all, even after 12 hours wear.

It's really pricey, and it's such a con that you have to buy the pump separately for an extra fiver, but I am going to have to splurge because it works so well.

Concealers -Estee Lauder -DW Waterproof All Day Extreme Wear Concealer

on 9/5/2017 5:24:00 AM

I went into Sephora because I wanted to treat myself so I decided to replace my used up under-eye concealer with a high end one. Coming from Maybelline Fit Me I don't think this is an improvement. The coverage looks pretty high from afar, but up close I can still see my dark circles showing through the 'seams'. It's quite a thick and dry formula so I don't really enjoy layering this on my foundation, especially since I wear glasses on a daily basis so my nose bridge area really builds up. Won't be buying this again and am definitely going back to doefoot applicators as the applicator tip on this makes it hard to control how much product comes out.

Lotions/ Creams -Estee Lauder -Aerin Tangier Vanille

on 9/3/2017 1:09:00 PM

To be clear, this is for the fragrance in its BODY CREAM iteration.

I love vanilla and I wanted to love this. It is a lovely "sophisticated" vanilla, meaning if you only know vanilla through BBW or Avon or something like that, you will probably not like this one....the Aerin website says that Italian bergamot, Bulgarian rose, sandalwood, and musk round out the Madagascar vanilla heart and give it warmth.

As a fragrance, I find this to be really overpowering; it lingers even after you wash your hands and competes with your perfume (I guess I can't complain about that since this is meant to be worn on its own or layered with its EDP counterpart). My issue is primarily with how the fragrance outlasts hand-washing but the moisturizing benefits do not.

I have tried the rose scent and found it to be exactly the same quality-wise.

Fragrances -Estee Lauder -Youth Dew

on 9/3/2017 12:04:00 PM


Estée Lauder Youth Dew is described as a Spicy Resinous Oriental. It is my signature scent for fall and winter. I adore this perfume! I got my first bottle in the mid 70's and wore it while I dated my husband and he loved it. It's so interesting how scents reach into a part of our brains that conjure up memories and and even emotions from the period in time in which we wore them. I had run out of my Youth Dew for a few years and my husband gave me a new bottle for Christmas. After I sprayed it on, we both were transported back in time and memories of our courtship flooded us both! So I won't go without my beloved Youth Dew anymore; it feels like a comforting, cozy, beautiful, blanket on a crisp fall day and the fragrance is so unique and it makes me feel very happy. Lasts a good 10 hrs on the skin. I know this scent is not for everyone- it's not a light, sweet floral or a syrupy sweet gourmand. But if you like spicy orientals and/or patchouli, this is a totally unique and wonderful fragrance. It's been going strong since 1953 so something about it is very right!!

Fragrances -Estee Lauder -Pleasures Intense

on 9/2/2017 9:04:00 PM


Lovely floral for Spring/Summer. Not a shy fragrance, somewhat strong at first but becomes soft and lovely with excellent staying power, like most Lauder fragrances. I love wearing all different types and brands of perfume, but chypres and spicy orientals are my favorite. This is a beautiful and well done floral, when I want something lighter for warmer weather. Out of all of the fragrances I own and wear, and that's quite a few, this fragrance gets me more compliments than all my others by far, from both men and women.

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

on 9/2/2017 10:04:00 AM


I wear this foundation in the shade 'Tawny' on a daily basis and have for around 2 years since finding it and i ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!
It leaves my skin looking so flawless, i apply it early in the morning then go through a full 8 hours at work, then a night out, and come home to it looking just as beautiful as when i first applied it.
The coverage is full, yet not cakey. It doesn't oxidise on me or settle into my fine lines which i've noticed most other matte, full coverage foundations do. It blends well and doesn't transfer.
This is my holy grail and I've repurchased many a times. Although my skin is no where near perfect I get so many compliments when wearing it!
Definitely recommend going to get colour matched and picking this up if you're in the market for an amazing foundation :)

( i use a mac pump with it, fits perfectly) x

Liquid -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 30

on 9/2/2017 7:06:00 AM


As the Estee Lauder Double Wear Original is my holy grail foundation, when I saw that EL were bringing out a lighter version of the original, I went crazy with excitement!
It promises that it's oil-free and has SPF 30, they also claimed that it has 24 hour wear - which made me even more impressed.
The original Double Wear has been my holy grail foundation for a few years, as it's the only foundation which doesn't break me out, doesn't irritate my skin, and keeps my very oily skin at bay ALL DAY. I have extremely oily skin, and nothing usually stay on, and the original stayed on all day on my holiday in Florida in the heat and humidity, and stayed on even after going on water rides!

As I'm in love with the original - which only has 15 hour wear claims - I decided this foundation would be perfect if I didn't want to wear heavy foundation, and if I want a foundation to stay put for 24 hours.

I tried this foundation out for a first impressions video on my youtube channel (video below), as I wanted to try it out on camera for the first time.
I've tried this foundation out a few times, so I feel as though I know how I feel about it, and how it works on my skin.

My Skin Type:
Very Oily T-zone, oily-combination skin, very sensitive, acne prone, blemishes, lots of redness, large pores.

After using this foundation for a couple of times, here are my pros and cons.

Very wide range of shades/colours - 33 shades in Neutral, Cool and Warm undertones.
Light-Medium buildable coverage
Makes skin look flawless.
Colour matches are perfect.
My T-zone didn't look oily/shiny after 12 hours of wear.
Feels light on the skin.
Has SPF 30, so helps to protect from sun damage.
Has a nice scent.

Price is very expensive. (£32.50 in the UK)
Can't use with a beauty blender otherwise it looks cakey.
Shades tend to be lighter than the original (I wear 2W2 in the original, and I had to purchase 3W1 in this foundation)
Broke my skin out.
Breaks up on the sides of my face after 8 hours.
Doesn't last 24 hours on my oily skin (Barely lasts 8)
Doesn't stay on for as long as the original (which stays put throughout everything).

Overall, I don't feel like I'd repurchase this if I ran out. The regional Double Wear is still my holy grail, and it's the foundation that I will always recommend to everyone!

Liquid -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup

on 9/1/2017 12:57:00 PM


I have combination more on the dry side, textured skin. I was really excited about this product because on youtube it was hyped up a bit by beauty gurus but one thing I noticed is that a lot of these beauty gurus already have good skin, so the foundation looks amazing. For me it accentuated ALL imperfections. Texture, dry patches and basically looked very very cakey and dry. My skin definitely looks better without it. It kind of made my skin look worse. I'm sure it's a great product for those that don't have too many skin bumps, dry patches and are more on the oily side. But if you have dry patches, texture - I wouldn't suggest buying it. And it sucks 'cause I wasted 45 bucks..
