This is my HG foundation for sure! No matter how much I try other foundations I keep finding myself missing this one ! Best staying power out of any foundation I've ever tried and best coverage. I love it. It's full coverage and glam looking. So it will look like you have foundation on but it will look like you have FLAWLESS gorgeous foundation on. I love it so much I was hooked ever since I tried it almost 2 years ago. I repurchase it instantly every time it runs out

I gave this a 5/5, because it does what it claims. I can NOT wear this whatsoever in the winter time, when I need something like MUFE face and body or Armani Maestro Glow (the one that's mostly oil based.). However, ladies if you are looking for a foundation that will not budge on humid summer days - and nights ;) - then this is it. My skin is dry, but I use Argan Oil every single morning so it doesn't dry me out in the summer. It almost feels like a clay mask when applying but my face feels like I'm wearing nothing once it dries. I noticed how light this felt in contrast to other foundations after applying a MAC full coverage foundation the next day, where I could literally feel my makeup trying to slip off.

And the rumors are true, this foundation does make skin appear airbrushed. I use 4c but I need to buy one cool shade lighter to mix for the right shade when i'm less tan. Worth it. But again, this is a summer staple for this dry skinned gal, unfortunately, and it is so drying in the winter on my skin.


Fragrances -Estee Lauder - Beautiful

Just got a new version of Beautiful. I must say it is not the same formula as I had before. It still smells good but to me it is not as good, nor does it last as long. I gave it 5 lippies anyway because it does still smell awesome for a floral and it is E.L. I will edit my review if my like lessens but for now, I am enjoying it with the Spring Season. I would buy again and I have ;-).

This product really doesn't live up to the hype. Its extremely cake, settles in my pores and lines on my face even after using a primer. the coverage is good, but the packaging is a big downside. the lack of a pump means that I always pour out way more than needed and waste a lot. definitely will not buy again.

This did NOT do the job for me. After only 30 minutes the foundations sat i my mimic lines (not wrinkles but the places where my face moves naturally) I'm really sad cause I've heard so many nice things about this product and I was really expecting my new go-to foundation. I did not use any primer under the foundation since I read it was best without. But yeah.. not a foundation for me at least :(


Lipstick -Estee Lauder - Pure Color Envy 220 - Powerful

I LOVE this lipstick! It's my all time favourite go to lipstick.
Was recommended this by the sales assistant when I was shopping for a lipstick to wear at my wedding.
It's my first lip product from Estee Lauder. I own other lipsticks from MAC, Body Shop, Chanel, Dior, NYX and Korean brands.

Shade - mid tone pink that instantly brightens the complexion, leaves a nice rosy stain when lipstick fades or is wiped away after a meal.

Texture - very moisturising on the lips, does not dry out or crack over time. One application lasts 4-6 hours easily and the stain it leaves on the lips does not fade for another 2 hours.

Packaging - Snap magnetic closure, weighty and expensive looking. Classy navy blue and gold makes it a pretty item to keep in your purse.

Scent - a slight scent that's not overwhelming or unbearable

Price - a bit expensive but is worth it for the quality.

Overall - I find that this lipstick is even better than Chanel's lipsticks because it's super long lasting.

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

I'm using this one now because it's only slightly better than wearing no concealer at all. I really wanted to like it because it had everything I wanted from a concealer; thick consistency, light colour, easy application. But this one creases like crazy. I use a moisturiser, primer and I set it very lightly with a translucent powder but it immediately breaks on my skin. If I smile the concealer just cracks up. I've tried every trick in the book but it won't stay in place. It's ridiculously expensive but I've had this concealer for half a year so if it works for you, it does pay back. I will not repurchase and I will look for a new concealer asap.

Number one foundation. It smoothes all imperfections, pores become invisible and whenever I wear this foundation I just fall in love with my skin. Its not difficult to apply, but I have to pay attention and have a good light when applying it. Lasts forever. Sweat resistant. Not drying. Hard to wash off.

This was my go to foundation for years. It's very nice, light and has good sheer coverage, with layering approaching a moderate finish. It is expensive, but has a very nice feel, look and texture. However I have found that I like Too Faced Born This Way better. If you don't want/need the moderate coverage of BTW then this is a very nice foundation. It has a nice satin finish and looks and feels very light.

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

I got a free sample of this eye cream when purchasing some perfume at Nordstrom and I wanted to try it, but I also wanted to be sure whether it actually made a difference so I decided to test it on only one eye. After doing this for four days, I was fairly confident that the Estee Lauder eye looked noticeably better (the dark under-eye circle looked lighter, the wrinkles were a tiny bit more faint, and it was definitely less puffy). So I decided to get a second opinion. After cleaning and moisturizing my face that night, I crawled into bed and told my husband that I was testing a free sample of a skin care product on half of my face and asked if he could see a difference. He looked up from the chess game that he was playing on his iPad, scanned my face for ten seconds, maybe fifteen, and said, "You have one young eye and one old eye."

"Yes! It's eye cream!" I exclaimed, and he said, "You should buy it," as he turned back to his chess game. "But it's fifty dollars a bottle," I replied. And without pausing or looking up from his screen, he said, "It's worth it." Boom. Done.

By way of context, I should note that my husband is one of the most frugal people I have ever met in my nearly five decades (gulp) on this planet. Except for his mother. So for him to be confident that this stuff is worth the fifty bucks they are asking for it speaks volumes to me.

At this point, I have been using it on both eyes for about two months, and I am just used to my face looking this way. But I'm glad that I did that test, or else I would probably feel like I couldn't tell whether it was making a difference and go back to my old eye cream when this bottle runs out. And then I would have old eyes again.

OUCH!!! I do not have sensitive skin but this stung my eye area. The stinging subsided and did not leave rash or redness, but I just don't want that irritation around my eyes. I absolutely LOVE the texture of the product - somewhere between a gel and an ointment. If anyone knows of a similar cream with this texture, please let me know! I use pretty high-powered actives (Vit.C, Retin-a, High% BHAs and AHAs) even under my eyes. So I was surprised that this product was irritating. Also, stupid jar packaging will cause breakdown of the antioxidants in this product.

Cleansers -Estee Lauder - Take it Away Makeup Remover Lotion

I got this in a GWP recently. It does take off most of my makeup. I don't see it doing any better than a good makeup wipe. I might even be tempted into buying the full size, if It weren't for the smell. I'm not really that sensitive to smells, but this smell is horrible. It reminds me of a very strong household cleaner.

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

I really wanted to like this product. I tried it back in 2015 and I thought that a long lasting I full coverage foundation was exactly what I needed. I have combo skin (very oily t-zone and dry bits on my chin) and back then I was living in a place with very humid, warm weather. Nothing kept me looking decent, and usually after lunch I was already looking like a grease ball. I used this foundation for a while, maybe a couple of months. I cringe at the memory of it! Back then I didn’t think it looked bad, specially because I was in a very sunny, warm place like I said. But that winter I travelled to Finland for work and my gawd! Every picture I took look positively GOLDEN/OLIVE. For reference, I have light skin with yellow undertones, but now leaning more towards neutral (still warm, just not as much). I was matched to 2W2 Rattan and initially I thought it was a good match. Boy was I wrong. I was looking muddy and almost olive green in my pictures. I also noticed that it accentuated my pores horribly! And having oily skin with visible pores around my nose I always use a pore filling smoothing primer (Porefessional or Maybelline Baby Skin). The foundation looked heavy, definitely a “makeupy” looking makeup, and it creased on me (specially around my mouth – I have somewhat visible laugh lines). I tried mixing it with other foundations to see if I could make it work. The best combination was using the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation (I couldn’t use this one on its own because I had bought the wrong shade by mistake and it was too light for me –Shade 10). And it helped with the color issue and a bit with the finish issue too. It looked much better. Still, very difficult to make it work, not fast enough for my hectic morning routines (I’m always in a rush). Overall, not the product for me. Not by a mile. Specially now that I live in rainy, cool Ireland where it’s never that warm, and my skin is slowly adjusting to this, producing a little bit less oil (still very oily tho) and rocking a paler shade (cause sunny days are a rarity here).

- The price is kinda up there, but it's not that bad if you love the product. I don't think you need a lot of this, so it will probably last a decent amount of time.

- About the packaging: It can get messy, but everyone always comments on it. It's heavy and feels "expensive", nice glass bottle. Not the best for travelling.

- Application: I used to apply this with a beauty blender to try and sheer it out a bit and get a more natural finish. I wasn't that successful at it, as it still looked heavy.

This is my Holy Grail foundation. I use the shade Ivory Nude.
I typically have oily skin, but lately -- thanks to a certain acne gel -- it has been mostly combo normal/dry with some pretty dry patches on my chin area. This foundation looks great all day regardless of my skin type!

PROS:
Decent shade ranges.
Medium coverage that is quite buildable.
Doesn't settle into fine lines or cake up.
Dries down quickly and is definitely transfer-proof within minutes.
Very long-lasting, even in Florida heat and humidity.
Controls oil for those with oily skin, but doesn't further dry out those with dry skin.
Non-acnegenic

CONS:
Funky, paint-like foundation smell (dissipates very quickly, just don't smell the product inside the bottle).
Packaging is meh. No pump. Standard glass bottle with lightweight screw-on cap. Nothing special and certainly not overly cute or fancy aesthetically.
Oxidises slightly after about five minutes.

The price was pretty standard for a high end foundation, $40 USD for 1.0floz. I, personally, feel that's a bit pricy, but definitely worth it for me. I use L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte for "off days" when I'm just going to the grocery store and whatnot.
