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

foto

Right about now as I have my end of summer panic over whether or not those new spots on my face are permanent, I remember this product is my ticket to making them fade away. It works gently over a couple of months to turn over new skin. It makes my face a little sensitive in the process so I pair it with a thick cream, I’m a fan of Lancôme’s Rénergie, and a satin pillow. I just wish it was easier to dispense than the brand’s apothecary eye dropper shtick so I’d have a better idea of when I’m running low.

This is a pleasant fragrance . However, the market is so saturated with sweet florals that they are all starting to become rather similar or nondescript . Maybe it has a group of enthused women who wear it , but I find it not too inspiring .

Liquid -Estée Lauder -Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup

I could never wear the original Double Wear since it was very heavy on my skin. I usually stay away from heavy coverage foundation and is always on the look out for natural, dewy kinda foundation finishes. I bought this foundation recently from Duty free at quite a good price in Dubai. The shade I use is Shell Beige and the texture is extremely light. I guess it provides a buildable coverage but for me one layer is just enough. The effect is natural, radiant looking skin and is quite a long-lasting one. The best feature of the product is unlike most products, it can be pushed back into the "stick" by twisting it anti-clockwise which I find extremely helpful.I have a habit of twisting the stick vigorously resulting in the release of too much of product but with this feature I can regulate the usage, thus saving from wastage!

Liquid -Estée Lauder -Double Wear Light Soft Matte Hydra Makeup

I've only tried a few of the Estee Lauder foundations so when they released a new version of their Double Wear Light Soft Matte Hydra Makeup I decided to give it a try, and I was not disappointed at all. The Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Soft Matte Hydra Makeup is light to medium coverage and sets to a nice matte finish. This does not settle into fine lines or crease at all and it lasts all day without looking greasy or fading. I love that this is fragrance free. This layers well on top of sunscreen or primers and does not pill. I do wish this had SPF but I haven't had any issues wearing this over any of my favorite sunscreens. The other nice thing is that this is available in many different shades so I was able to find an exact color match. My video review can be seen here:

Eye Primer -Estée Lauder -Little Black Primer

on 9/3/2018 9:23:00 AM

I really love this primer, have just bought my second tube. Actually i use it by itself (i prefer the dior 3d primer for actual primer action lol) but its absolutely wonderful as a daytime mascara! It doesnt clump or smudge and curls and holds it beautifully.
There isnt much more i could add about it that other people havent already, i just like it so much I wanted to say so! Ive tried it as a primer, its allllright but as I say I think there are better primers out there such as the white dior primer if you are looking for that false lash effect. I like Little black primer as a mascara in its own right as its so easy to put on, and i dont need to put alot to get the length and volume i want..my lashes just look long, defined and still natural. It does have a similar looking effect to the benefit theyre real primer, however obviously its black instead of brown, and i found benefits’ primer smudged terribly after a couple of hours of wear. Estee lauder doesnt move at all! However that brings me to the only downside if i have to be really picky.. its a little harder to remove than other primers/mascaras ive tried. Still, as its so hard working and long lasting, making a little effort of my own to remove it at the end of the day is not a huge issue for me. Probably also depends on what kind of remover you are using...

In summary - if you are looking for an amazing primer that gives you lashes to your eyebrows - probably pass on this one, there are better ones. However if you are looking for a light elegant mascara that will enhance your natural eyelashes and stay where its supposed to be all day - go for it! I love it!

Great medium coverage which lasts very well for a natural finish foundation. Great shade range, was able to find a perfect match. Even though it had SPF 30 my sensitive skin did not react negatively at all. It also has many great ingredients for skin care.

I got this on 50% off sale at Ulta recently for about $14. I am a MAC NC15 and I purchased this in 1C Light (Cool), and this is a pretty good color match. I have applied either with a damp beauty blender or tapping in with my fingers. I use this primarily as an undereye concealer over moisturizer and I also put a dot alongside each nostril where I have a bit of redness. It blends in reasonably well. I am 51, and my main concerns right now are crepiness and shadows in my lower orbital rim. This is not a bad concealer, but not amazing. It does have a nice opaque quality. However, I find that my dark circles are bad enough that I need to build a few layers of this to get decent coverage. If I put on too much, I definitely notice creasing in my undereye corners. I will be able to use this up (although I have bought so many concealers that I now have an approximately 100 year supply!), but not sure if I would repurchase.

Liquid -Estée Lauder -Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup

Love Love Love!!! This is my favourite foundation!
It does exactly what they say it will do, which is "Stay in Place". I apply this early morning, and wear it all day which for me is a minimum 12 hours, and I don't have to touch it up at all.
I should note, my skin is normal/dry, but def not oily. This goes on really easily and it's great to blend, it gives you enough time to get it right before it sets. And when it does set it's not chalky or cement like, its soft and light and feels comfortable on.
I always use a primer before any foundation, and I do with this one too so I'm not sure if it would hold as long without primer (but I reckon it would).
I use to wear the MAC Pro Longwear but that was way too drying and would crack after about 5 hours.
This one is not as dry as the MAC, but it somehow stays matte all day, it literally doesn't move and it is NOT CAKEY - if anyone says this is a cakey product then you're obviously applying something too heavy underneath.
Some people are complaining about the fact that the bottle doesn't have a pump but seriously, who cares!! When the product is this good no pump is the least of my worries.
Its a bit pricey $58 a bottle, but you really do get what you pay for and the price doesn't put me off. I can't fault this at all and I know a few others that use it and love it just as much as me.
Thanks Estee Lauder, finally the perfect foundation has been produced!
HUGE thumbs up!!

If you have oily skin and live in a humid country this foundation is for you. But for it to have a flawless look you have to makesure you really prep your skin before application, that is, masks, serums, moisturisers and hydrating primers etc.. This foundation does have a tendency to look cakey, best application item is a beauty blender and just press it in your skin till you feel like it has become part of your skin. Also, if you have acne prone skin then this may cause breakouts as this foundation just clings to your skin, so do save this foundation for special occasions.If i have an important event, then this is the foundation i grab...

I have really dry skin so I apply this once I've prepped my skin with lots of moisturising cream. A little goes a long way and it's medium to full coverage. No horrible smell like those mac foundations. This is similar to the nars foundation (my HG), it gives a a lovely dewy finish.

Once you find your shade in this foundation it is fabulous! I have aging combo skin and this foundation glides over pores and lines and makes your skin look flawless. I also like I don't have to use powder with this formula, the foundation is matte enough on it's own. It is more of a natural matte so if you're looking for a filtered look you would definitely need powder. I used a small amount and blended it with the Real Techniques triangular foundation brush and it looked amazing. I am so happy I finally found a foundation that doesn't age me and lasts all day!

I have very oily sensitive acne prone skin and this is another foundation that broke me out so bad Im not even bother to try their new formula. I am not sure which ingredient caused this which haunts me til this day but I guess it was the one with sulfate-ending PLUS it is sooooo cakey, even on my oily skin. Nothing close to "looking natural" when I put this on. I'm glad it turned out to be HG for some people but you have to be very very lucky to not breaking out using this.

Have been using it for a few days. I am not seeing very little difference. I think there are far cheaper products that work better for me.

I got suckered into this by Instagram marketing. A British magazine editor uses this and has great skin so I thought I'd give it a try. I should have known better. It didn't cause me any problems, but it also didn't provide any results or visible difference in my skin. At this price-point, I prefer to use cosmeceutical type brands with stronger actives (e.g. SkinMedica, Revision, etc).
