I used to love this foundation and wore it regularly in my early to mid twenties, I stopped wearing for it a while as it was beginning to break me out as heavy foundations often do on my skin. I went back to it a year or two later, my skin had aged slightly with some lines around eyes and smile lines, it really accentuated these lines on my face and I immediately had to take it off.
Its a great foundation in that it could withstand a bomb and not budge its also full coverage and smooth on application but doesnt work on my skin anymore.

I received a sample of this this perfume, its really nothing special, smells quite generic and ive never received any comments while wearing it. There are much much nicer fragrances available for the same price and cheaper.

This foundation just does not work for me. I have oily, blemish prone skin and heard so many great things about this foundation. I had it applied by a makeup artist as part of my wedding makeup trial, it didn’t last for more than a few hours before it became dark and patchy with oily areas. It was used with a decent NARS primer and finishing powder along with a MAC setting spray. It just isn’t good for very oily skin. I looked like I’d bathed in fake tan and baby oil!

I always go back to this foundation. Long lasting and if I want a lighter look I mix with a bit of my daily spf. In the summer I mix it with a touch of bronzer. Very breathable too. You can build it up. Love it. Fantastic selection of colours too.

I would consider this an expensive foundation because of the price point but it is so worth it. The coverage is incredible and a little goes a long way, because before I used this I was using a light-med foundation, but this is extremely full coverage!!
I find the consistency to be slightly too thick for me so I usually mix some other stuff with a small amount and it covers my whole face + more. The longevity of this is also amazing, once I wore this for a whole day from morning and went out to party at night till 4am, and this foundation firmly remained on my face. I also live in a country that is humid all year round and so far this foundation has held up to the heat and humidity!
I will repurchase this for sure because although it is pricey, it’s worth every cent.

Fragrances -Este Lauder -Beautiful Belle

on 8/21/2018 10:58:00 PM

From Estée Lauder’s page: Romantic, carefree and irreverent.
The Thrill: Lychee, Rose Petals, Mimosa
The Romance: Orange Flower, Gardenia, Tuberose
The Promise: Orris Root, Blush Suede Accord, Marzipan Musk, Ambrox

I tried a spray from the bottle at the counter, a beautiful white bottle white a strange glass orb with gold lashings for a lid. At first sniff, this was new, but heaven. It leans heavily on it’s “parent,” Beautiful, of course, but I swear I smelled Beautiful Sheer and Beyond Paradise, too. Very light, polite, fizzy, cool and warm at the same time, like when you’re just back into the air conditioning but you’re still warm. It was such a glorious radiance of flowers with fruit for succulence. I almost bought it on the spot, but as I planned to look at all the new stuff in the makeup department I held off.

And I am glad I did. This is dreck. It settled down to a noxious mall fog, the kind of smell that emanates from the fragrance department when someone has just been spraying randomly and heavily. There’s no message to it, just utter capitalism. Super competently made, but it’s the same damn thing every one else is making. Lauder used to stand for real artistic vision. Artistic vision that sold, but artistic vision just the same. It wore and wore and wore and it was still there, after alcoholing it and a shower, the next morning. It survived working in the garden and it, or the accidental overspray, survived a trip through the washing machine. By that time it was just the musks and what smelled sharply of synthetic cedar and other woods.

And the name? “Beautiful Belle”? That word has negative connotations, especially now with all that’s happening politically. “Belle” doesn’t stand for anything positive to me. I’m terribly disappointed in Lauder and hope they begin to recover their vision.

Liquid -Este Lauder -Re-Nutriv Ultimate Radiance Makeup SPF15

I have very fair and very sensitive skin. It has always been a challenge to find a foundation that fit my needs tor color, coverage, allergies, and price. I have used brands ranging from drugstore to makeuup artist driven lines to rather expensive designer brands. The playing field has gotten significantly larger with the addition of stores like Sephora and Ulta giving a showplace for smaller, up and coming lines. When I was a teenager, I was limited to Clinique and Prescrptives. One went out of business, one still has rather fuddy duddy colors, and Estee Lauder products were laden with fragrance. Well it seems like everyone is changing to meet the needs of a more sophisticated market educated by blogs and youtube videos. I came across an email ad for 20% off all Estee Laluder products purchased with that offer code online, so no testing was possible. The offering assured free shipping and returns, so I took a chance to try a $100 foundation for $80. The most expensive foundation I had ever purchased in the past was one from Ellis Faas, also with a coupon,, in the lightest shade available, and it was not particularly better than products for a quarter of the price. Estee Lauder has come a long way. This very elegantly packaged foundation is fragrance free, had an SPF15 using broad spectrum zinc oxide as the active ingredient, and had a silky, luxurious texture that applied easily. Two pumps of product applied with a foundation brush gave medium to full coverage that was radiant and flawless. My only concern was that I purchased the lightest cool shade available, Cool Bone, 1C1. The only other fair shade available was 1N1, and I was afraid that it would be too yellow. I thought my face may have appeared a tiny bit lighter than my body, but with winter back on its way, that may not be a problem. The color match was pretty darn close. I have mostly been wearing Bare MInerals Complexion Gel in Opal this summer for its chemical free SPF30 and beautiful, sheer coverage that was forgiving enough to work with my skintone, although, a shade cooler would have been a perfect match. For more formal use, I have the Bobbi Brown Skin foundations in the stick and liquid in the Ivory shade. This does seem to be a pretty perfect match to my skintone, but the formulas do not have the silkiness of this luxurious product. . So to sum up, if you have dry, mature or very sensitive skin, and can find a color match in this limited line, and can splurge on foundation - start looking for coupons and email offerings, because this is a very fine foundation!

The best foundation around, PERIOD. Believe the hype, this foundation is pure perfection. I purchased this in the wrong color months ago...well, actually the wrong undertone (which is worse). Didn't bother with it for awhile. Finally made my way to the actual EL counter at my local mall and had them use the machine to match me. Turns-out, I'm actually warm in this foundation (shocked) and she matched me very well. I wear the color Nutmeg (6W2) and used a moisturizing primer (Fenty) and Velvet Matte in my T-zone (can't think of the brand) and applied using a brush. I'm a full coverage kind of girl and used about 3-4 drops. This is supposed to be a super matte foundation but because I moisturized well and used a moisturizing primer, my skin looks well hydrated while wearing this. Nothing drying about this foundation. The application is flawless, no texture whatsoever. The warm undertone suits my natural skin complexion so well. I did color correct using Nyx apricot colored corrector. The night before, I did both a scrub and chemical exfoliant and that made a world of difference. Can't emphasize enough the importance of a good skin care routine. Even without a pump, I am giving this a 5 in overall rating...that's just how good it is. Splurge on this high-end foundation, its worth it.

Moisturizers -Este Lauder -Hydrationist Maximum Moisture Creme Broad Spectrum SPF 15

I was very excited to find this creme for its SPF protection but this creme feels too heavy on my skin (I have a oily skin and I live in a hot and humid Bay Area). It is supposed to be oil-free but instead it makes my skin look too oily. The smell of creme is pretty bad. The cucumber scent is used to mask strong chemical scent that lingers behind. Instantly upon application, I could smell strong chemicals and hated to put it on my face. Since I have spent so much money on it, I will finish it on my neck and arms but will not buy it again. I have been using Lancome's Bienfait multivital SPF30 for a while and have been pretty happy with it but when the bottle was about to be over, I wanted to try this Day Wear SPF25 because I really like Estee Lauder's revitalizing supreme . Unfortunately, Day Wear SPF has thoroughly disappointed me. Can't comment on long-term benefits of this creme because I simply can not push myself to put it on my face because of the obnoxious chemical smell and the way it feels greasy on my face.

Mascara -Este Lauder -Sumptuous Extreme

I never could wear black mascara as it looked too harsh and made me look older. But EXTREME BLACk in Sumptuous Extreme mascara is a whole different thing. It's such a deep black that it makes your eyes "pop" and actually looks good on me. It is also extremely thicking and creates great fullness with the very first sweep on. One coating is plenty. It does tend to "racoon eye" a little bit, but no worse than other mascara's. The depth of color and fullness (great brush) are enough to make me ok with minimal racoon eye. I tried the "smudge proof" mascara and it flakes rather than smudges, which is no better.

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

I bought this during sephora sales months back,
As for this pass 2months I've been on the hunt for sheer to light coverage dewy foundations,
So look that this foundation carries the double wear claim as well so I decided to give it a go.

I've wore this for a week now,
Tried it with different primers on different day.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude -
2W1 Desert Beige
Skin type - normal combination

with Porefessional - too drying for my skin
With Elixir Shiseido SPF 50 primer - light coverage, not sure why everyone says it's dewy as it looks very matt for.me
With Laurer Mercier Radiance Primer - foundation look like a oily mess, does not want to settle down on my skin

I've had drugstore foundations that works way better den this, the best dewy light coverage full day foundation will still be Shiseido Synchro Skin Glow, lasting, beautiful radiance.

This foundation is really a waste of my money, really regret.

And I really cannot understand why this foundation cannot come with a pump especially when it's so watery? Drugstores can do so, y luxury brand like EL did not?
I really can't relate, really disappointed.

This foundation lasted on my skin for 6-8hrs as would any other foundation I've used, I've never need to blot, powder during the time I'm work, I just don't like how it looks on my skin.

My advice is please ask for a sample first before purchasing, don't waste your money like how I did.

Literally the ONLY foundation i use! It works amazing for people with OILY skin. As a person who in the past had suffered from severe acne, my face has a lot of scars, however this foundation saved me! I always wear one layer and get almost full coverage!! It also lasts amazing under the sun and heat, it wont smudge or start to melt on the eyes or other parts of the face. If estee lauder discontinues this foundation i will seriously be so screwed!

I want to find this again, or something as good! For deep lines/wrinkles, such as around the mouth, you "draw" it on the wrinkle and tap it lightly to blend. The light is reflected away from the wrinkle and appears much less noticeable. Even my mother used this product all the way up until she passed away, (She was 87.) And she was NOT one to waste money on something that did not work!

I liked two of the fragrances from this line, but found that, on my skin, they both became a little harder and more cosmetic smelling after around 2-4 hours. Initially they were both gorgeous. Just doesn't work with some skin types.
