Mascara -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Zero Smudge Lengthening Mascara

on 4/27/2018 4:41:00 PM

Did not perform for me. Started out super dry on the wand so that I thought it was old. Then day by day it got wetter so that it started going on clumping my lashes and leaving balls on the ends of my lashes. Added length as the name says but very little volume. This did not leave my lashes looking good. And this did not come off easily. I had to use makeup remover whereas I thought this was a tubing mascara. And the final straw was it irritated my eyes. I took it back.

Liquid -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup

Definitely my HG foundation. Double Ware does not budge on my combination skin for at least 12 hours easily and looks honestly much better on my face at the end of the day than most other foundations look in 4-5 hours.
I prefer applying it with a damp beauty sponge on a well moisturized and primed skin. I noticed that I need much smaller amount of product than when working with most other foundations I've tried. With just one very thin layer and a damp sponge I can easily get high-medium or light-high coverage which I really enjoy even for an everyday look. It looks quite natural, I have never experienced cakyness with Double Ware (I think applying it in very thin layers and not more than 1-2 layers helps in that regard). I normally set it very lightly with a bit of a setting powder and I usually don't need any touch-ups during the entire day (not even on my T-zone).
I truly love it and don't even know why I have another 5 different foundations at the moment when all I want to use is Double Ware :)

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

I've been wearing this for a week as a sample, in place of the ELDW, but I do not think I'll be switching permanently anytime soon! This foundation is definitely on the lower coverage side but still covers the majority of my redness, for a bit, then it starts to wear off on my chin, sides of nose within a few hours. I have oily skin, but even with a primer and powder this did not last on me. It's not even summer here yet, so I can only imagine how quickly this would fade once I'm at the beach or out for the day in the heat.

I have acne prone skin and while this didn't cause any major breakouts, it clogs my pores and I have a few red spots, where as the ELDW does not cause this problem.

Lipstick -Estee Lauder -Pure Color Love Lipstick

In these lipsticks there are four types:metallic,cream,sheer and matte.I have tried matte and they are not very hydrating.The metallics don't last long.So i don't recommend it,if you want matte and hydrating(like me) or metallics that lasts.I have golden rose matte that are exactly the same.Why should i give 25 euros for something i can have with 5?I am very demanding but there are mattes and hydrating from L'oreal infallible(5 colors) and if you can afford Dior Rouge.So try them.I recently bought Estee Lauder pure color envy liquid metallics and Urban Decay vice lipstick(cream), which are not mattes but i am very satisfied with duration and hydration.Give it a try

Moisturizers -Estee Lauder -Estee Lauder Revitalizing Supreme + Global Anti-aging Cell Power Creme

foto

This stuff made my skin sting really bad. I have some sensitivities to fragrances, but the amount of fragrance in this is crazy ridiculous. I have washed it off and I still smell it and my face is still stinging. Thank god I had a sample I received from buying some double wear makeup and didn't pay for this.
I consulted via online chat with Estee Lauder and this is the first thing they hustled for a moisturizer. I'm going to assume it's because it's one of their newest products, even though I specified twice my skin was dry and I wanted hydration. I am currently interested in trying a new skin care line and was considering Estee Lauder, but I'm going to continue my trusted CeraVe and keep on searching because there's no way (from reading reviews for other products) that I'm going to be able to use their skin care products.


Treatments (Face) -Estee Lauder -Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher

on 4/23/2018 9:04:00 PM

Idealist is a great product. It's sort of a hybrid between a makeup primer and a serum. I like it because it's not silicone heavy, but it leaves a smooth finish. (Excessive silicones makes me break out.) Idealist sort of takes your skin to the next level, and I think it's worth every penny.

To use: I apply in the morning after I cleanse and tone. (I don't use this at night.) Two pumps is all I need for my face and neck. I apply moisturizer and eye cream afterwards. The results are silky smooth skin with less visible pores. It leaves a slightly matte finish and blurs imperfections. It's an amazing product, and I only hope I can continue to afford it!

Foundations -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Maximum Cover Camouflage Makeup For Face & Body SPF 15

on 4/22/2018 3:45:00 PM

The most amazing and full coverage foundation I have ever used. The formula smells amazing and applies so well with a beauty blender, it can also act as a concealer. It lasts so long on face and there is a lot of product (I had my foundation for almost 6 months!) I 100% prefer this over the normal double wear.

Moisturizers -Estee Lauder -Verite Moisture Relief Cream

on 4/21/2018 3:25:00 PM

A phenomenal product and one-of-a-kind.

I bought this out of desperation when my Clinique pep start hydrorush moisturiser gave me a terrible allergic reaction and I realised it was actually drying my skin out. I had already started using Estee Lauder's Perfectly Clean Triple Action foaming cleanser and been wowed by its gentleness and effectiveness. That was my first introduction to the brand. Thanks to the reviewers of MUA, I therefore bit a very big bullet and forked out £47 at my nearest Boots for this pot of wonders with all my fingers crossed that it would deliver. And it did.

I have moderate-severe acne, quite severe rosacea, and hyper-sensitive skin which is easily inflamed and irritated. My skin also easily becomes dehydrated and breaks out from oils and butters (including the dreaded capric/caprylic triglyceride found in so many sensitive-skin products now), so I try to stay with 'fat-free' skin products but there was always a compromise to be made - not moisturising enough, mild breakouts, weird textures on my skin, didn't play with other products, made my skin hot etc. But my skin was so bad after Clinique that none of my regular products were helping.

I was cautious with Verite because it has petroleum, and having used Vaseline before and broken out, I was waiting for the breakout to hit. The same with squalane (I'd had terrible acne from The Ordinary's squalane). But, far from it, my skin has never been so immaculate!

Upon initial application, I couldn't believe my skin, which was in such a raw and horrendous state, was not stinging or burning. I usually expect that for the first few minutes even using very 'safe' products, simply because my skin is in such bad condition, but Verite did nothing more than offer what my skin craved - genuine moisture (not just oil), a cooling and soothing effect, and it seemed to 'seal' itself onto my skin like a protective barrier over the rawness yet still allowing my skin to breathe. I couldn't feel the product at all, just its wonderful effects.

It has been about a month now, and not only has my skin rapidly repaired itself because of Verite, but in combo with the Perfectly Clean Triple cleanser, my acne has truly disappeared - a feat I have never managed possible. I remain amazed that I can put this on my face in huge amounts when needed and I never break out. I have always had to apply moisturisers with an almost scientific level of measuring and rubbing in to minimise breakouts from failing to completely rub it in or apply too much but never with this. I can even use this on sunburn with no irritation whatsoever.

As others have mentioned, this was not on display at my local Estee Lauder counter at Boots, so you have to ask for it, but it is still stocked and does not seem to be discontinued anymore, which is truly heartening. Boots online can tell you which branches stock it.

I still don't really understand why this works so beautifully, but it does. It has no problems with my makeup or sunscreen. Yes it is very expensive, and yes it could be packaged better, but the actual contents are incredible and is very literally rescuing and repairing my skin from decades of damage. I cannot praise this enough - my HG moisturiser for life.

Cleansers -Estee Lauder -Perfectly Clean Triple-Action Cleanser/Toner/Makeup Remover

on 4/21/2018 3:00:00 PM

I truly appreciate the gentleness and sophisticated ingredients in this cleanser, having hyper-sensitive, acne-prone and roseacea skin. It has never broken me out, and is so soothing, probably due to the high amount of witch hazel, Zinc and Lady's Thistle, and low-level surfactants. I've never seen an ingredient list like this before and that was my initially why I purchased it, despite (a) being wary that foaming cleansers can be harsh or drying and (b) this containing a synthetic oil (hydrogenated castor oil).

I wear medium-full mineral makeup and this takes off everything, leaving my skin incredibly calm and smooth afterwards. It needs no rubbing or washcloth, which is perfect for those of us suffering with raw, irritated skin. My pores are always left clear and have looked increasingly refined rather than puckered.

As a previous reviewer mentioned, it works best if you apply it to wet hands and a dry face. This activates an oiliness within the foam and it is this element which seems to do the 'heavy lifting' of makeup removal. I was initially concerned because oil cleansing has always broken me out terribly, but it rinses clean and my breakouts stopped and cleared within the first day or so of switching to this. I have truly never had a cleanser this gentle or effective before that has not broken me out, caused an allergic reaction, or dried my skin out. That is why I have given this a 5 star rating - if you have fairly robust skin, this may feel like a very 'meh' cleanser, but if, like me, you have incredibly difficult, fragile skin, this is very worth considering and I highly recommend it.

The only down sides are the price (RRP £26 for 150ml) and that using it morning and evening I found a bottle didn't last more than about 2 months, but I often like to double-cleanse with it in the evening after makeup removal - more out of paranoia than a problem with the makeup removal. I've never used it on waterproof makeup, so I can't comment on its effectiveness there, but I can use it to remove my mascara with no burning or stinging or cloudiness around my eyes (though don't get it in your eyes!). I am surprised this cleanser has not received more or higher reviews on MUA as it is consistently rated very highly by customers elsewhere on the internet.

I think this is my HG cleanser and I never thought I would be able to say that about any product.

Big disappointment. Smells nothing like the lotion or scrub or anything from the original line. If you want the original smell just get the body spray in the clear bottle.

Primer/ Corrector -Estee Lauder -Illuminating Perfecting Primer

on 4/18/2018 11:55:00 AM

I recieved three of Estee Lauder primerss for free: Soother, luminating, and mattifer. I tried soother and luminating on different sides of face for 3 days. I have large pores and was trying these to see which helped with pores. This primer actually makes my pores appear even larger, the wrinkles under my eyes worse. Then I considered if my face was luminous, it was not. To be honest with you, Loreal Magic lumi primer is more luminous and way cheaper.

Smoother is awesome though, I will buy full size of that.

I love the Double Wear foundation but the concealer fell flat. I mostly wanted to use it for under my eyes, where it immediately looked dry and patchy and got worse throughout the day. I also tried dabbing it on some spots on my face. It blended and covered well at first but then wore off a few hours later.

Liquid -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Light SPF10

on 4/15/2018 2:56:00 PM

This is one of the best for oily skin or skin that is sensitive & prone to breakouts. I'm generally allergic in some way or another to most foundations except this one. The problem is the shade range isn't good, I can't seem to find a shade between the 2 and 3. 2 is way too light & 3 way too dark/orange :( having to mix a 2 and 3 was proving too expensive.
It's a light to buildable coverage which again for sensitive skin is a good thing so your skin can breathe! I think this holds up on oily skin better than the original double wear.
