Liquid -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup

I was so sceptical of Double Wear, but holy heck am I hooked now! I
Pros:
Elegant packaging. I feel like a fancy b***h every time I pull it out of my makeup drawer (every single day, it's just so good)
The liquid formula isn't too thick. I prefer to roughly spread it over my skin before blending with my RT sponge, and I really enjoy the thinner consistency of this.
The coverage. I believe it's a a medium-full coverage foundation, but I typically apply enough for a medium coverage. It can easily be built to full coverage though. I think it looks pretty and skinlike, natural matte.
Sits well with my Tarte Shape Tape concealer (I use that for my eye area)
Has great lasting power. It doesn't seperate or slide off of my oily skin, and I can usually get 5-6 hours of wear before I want to blot. However, if I sweat for hours (as I do working with no air con this summer) I find it does tend to seperate.

Cons:
It's hella expensive! $69NZD and it's the most I've ever spent on a foundation.
NO PUMP. Sometimes it's just too easy to use too much of this liquid gold because it's so easy to pour onto your waiting hand (or brush, sponge, or even the bathroom counter, oops)

I'm now onto my second bottle (1C1 Cool Bone) and I have every intention to repurchase when I run out.

Lipstick -Estee Lauder -Pure Color Envy 220 - Powerful

I really don't know why this product didn't work for me, but I have a hunch. The color was way off: A bright pink shade far too light for me. It wasn't dry the slightest but refused to settle into my lips and showed all the imperfections I had on my mouth. Overall it's just sort of loud and sticky-gross looking on myself, but if it's a light makeup day I like to dab a little on my cheeks and rub it in and it gives a nice glow.

*Warning* If you live in Australia Estee Lauder have reformulated the iconic foundation and added SPF 10. I had been wearing this foundation for five years and it was the only thing I could put on my skin that would never break me out and lasted for 12 hours. I recently repurchased without knowing about the reformulation and the formula/consistency/feeling and longevity were completely different. When I put it on I thought they must've made a bad batch and I bought an unlucky bottle. I went about doing my face as normal. The coverage has been halved, product separates and disappears if any cream products are layered on top (concealer blush etc). Does not stick to certain areas of the face, will not layer, cakes and feels disgusting on the skin, before you could not feel it, and now it feels hot and heavy.
The worst part, after six hours of wear I come home and I have clogged pores all over my face. It managed to break me out in six hours! (my skin is really allergic to chemical spf, so all spf in foundation)
I'm devastated, I wish they bought out an spf version whilst keeping the orginal. It would've made much more sense considering how many people are allergic to chemical sunscreen

Blush -Estee Lauder -Genuine Glow Blushing Creme for Lips and Cheeks

on 1/29/2018 5:34:00 PM

This product has been flying under the radar - why is nobody talking about this? Supposedly limited edition, you can still find this on the Estée Lauder website as well as various other retailers‘ sites. This is cream blush heaven for dry skinned gals! It is the butteriest blush I own - would definitely not recommend this for anyone with oily skin or those in hot climates but if your dry cheeks need some love, look no further. This is so dewy and creamy, it’s almost like a lip balm but with serious pigment and ultra fine shimmer which adds a subtle highlight. I have the shade „Sweet Cheeks“, a gorgeous light watermelon pink that makes you look fresh and youthful. Can you tell I am loving this? If you like dewy, glowy cheeks, run, don’t walk, and get this while you can.

Fragrances -Estee Lauder -Modern Muse

Modern muse has been among my top ten favorites since the first day I tested it and I still love it.I usually forget about it in fall and winter,when I go for heavy and sweet gourmands or oriental vanillas but each year,it has been my most-used fragrance in spring and summer
If you're into musky-florals you have to try this beauty.I LOVE honeysuckle and modern muse has such a gorgeous floral scent;honeysuckle shines through this white floral bouquet.I can't get enough of this lily,honeysuckle,Jasmine heaven but modern muse isn't just about white florals.it has one of the best musks one can experience in a fragrance.not a dirty,funky musk;not a sharp and soapy one either.
Modern muse is clean and fresh while being sexy.it's truely ageless,feminine,classy.it's inoffensive but also has it's own personality and this makes it easy to use in several different occasions.from work place to a romantic date.from a fancy dinner to a casual shopping day.it can make a great signature perfume
Longevity is amazing on my skin.it's easily noticeable by anyone around without punching them in face
I'm not fond of it's packaging but I don't dislike it.It's one of the rare perfumes I will repurchase all through my life

good coverage, good oil control, AMAZING lasting power. for the first time ever I can be confident that my foundation has not run by the 6 hour mark. im just kicking myself for not getting this earlier. for reference, I am pale warm toned and 1W1 is a good match. I mix it with a bit of 1N1 on days when I want a 'pinker' look.

Liquid -Estee Lauder -Double Wear Light SPF10

I love my EL DW Light! I think it gives the skin a beautiful finish, while at the same time looking like it is your skin. It is not over the top. It doesn't settle into fine lines or wrinkles. It doesn't emphasize pores. My favorite way to apply it is with a beauty blender, but fingers or a brush work just as well. I have tried countless foundations that the "beauty gurus" swear by, and I always come back to this one. It is my HG foundation.

Treatments (Eye) -Estee Lauder -Estee Lauder Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging Eye Balm

on 1/24/2018 4:14:00 PM

Very impressed. I received a sample jar of this and was pleasantly surprised by the results. There was a visible reduction in the puffiness under my eyes in a couple of days. I have terrible bags under my eyes and nothing has ever improved puffiness for me before. Crows feet were comfortably moisturized as well, without greasiness. It does seem to have a little bit of sheen to it which I like. I actually used the whole sample jar then purchased a full size, something I have never done before especially considering the price. A full size jar goes for around $60 but I don't mind paying for something that works. I would prefer a product in a tube though, to prevent contamination from fingers.

I so love this lighter version of my beloved double wear. Im just dissapointed in the color options. If i could find my perfect match it would be HG. I love the long wearing formula on a few years back i had extremly oily skin and this held like no other. Love it.

I am not a full coverage type of person in general but I purchased this for travelling to humid destinations.
I have been wearing this for over 12 months and it's been tried and tested in Vietnam. This foundation really holds up in the humidity & stays in place all day. I wear it to the gym as well.
A little goes a long way and if you have combination or dry skin, you must moisturise well beforehand.
The color selection is quite good as well, with a choice of pink/neutral/yellow undertones available. Not having a pump on this foundation make it a bit messy. I don't use a lot when I wear this, so I scoop a little out with a spatula, but if you are pouring it out, you need to be careful.

I just wished this product was made by a cruelty free company. Once I finish this up, I will not be repurchasing as it is not cruelty free. Other than that, it is a very good long-wearing foundation.

Moisturizers -Estee Lauder -DayWear Advanced Multi-Protection Creme Oil-Free SPF 25

I used this cream religiously in my 20’s and loved both the creamy texture and cucumber scent. My main concern back then was preventing wrinkles & premature aging, as well as sun protection. It was wonderful.

I recently hit my 40’s (ack!) and in an attempt to tighten my purse strings, I purchased this instead of my usual La Mer or La Prairie. It looks and smells exactly the same, so I was mildly excited. Mind you, this was a massive downgrade from La Mer or La Prairie so I was a wee bit skeptical. Sadly, this cream is not enough now that I’m in my early 40’s. It also feels much thicker than I remember and makes my face feel slimy.

After perusing reviews, I noticed that Estée Lauder has REALLY broadened their anti-aging product lines and this cream is essentially a preventative cream for youthful skin. Not enough for my vain 40-something self. While I’m not immediately jumping back to my expensive ways, I did have to abandon this cream. Highly recommended for 20-somethings, but not enough after you have initial signs of aging like fine lines or wrinkles.

Great effective product, it does work and it melts once on your face. I would use it right before your shower as you do want to rinse with water afterwards. However, it’s horrible to use to remove eye makeup. It gets into my eyes and the next two hours my vision is blurry. Beautiful packaging with matte plastic and gold cap.

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

on 1/19/2018 7:25:00 AM

Bar none, the very best concealer that I have used - ever. The water-like consistency transforms to a natural finish. The medium coverage is extremely buildable with no creasing or caking. It works equally beautifully under the eyes as on other areas of the face. While not covering like paint, it does a superior job of looking natural and unchanged finish for 8-hours or more. Pricing is exceedingly reasonable, as a little goes a very long way. The packaging is perfection, with a pinched applicator preventing too much product from escaping. Valuing skin texture over coverage, I absolutely love this concealer!

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

on 1/19/2018 7:00:00 AM

Despite hating "radiant" and "cushion" makeup, I am over the moon in love with this foundation! The silky consistency glides over the skin making application a snap, leaving a light, buildable, skin-like coverage. In under 30 seconds, the foundation sets and the initial sheen vanishes so it requires no setting powder. It is amazingly forgiving over any textural flaws like wrinkles, fine lines, or dry patches, while not being a greasy mess. Once set, the finish remained the same for 12 hours -- no shine, no dryness, no caking, no creasing! I typically avoid reusable cushions due to contamination risks, but the consultant showed me how to pop off the cushion and it works perfectly. There is quite lot of perfume in this foundation. Though it dissipates quickly, I strongly prefer unscented makeup. I will be repurchasing a backup because this is magic in a bottle.

If you have oily skin and want a long wear, medium coverage upon first coat, full coverage with 2 coats foundation, JUST GET IT. It really is the BEST on the market. I have been there, done that, and CONTINUE to venture out just out of curiosity and this remains untouchable for HG. All the other samples of enticing new foundations get tossed and I apologize to my double wear while kissing the bottle the next morning. Also, the shade match is the most impeccable I've found in ANY brand ever. A $42 bottle lasts me 2-3 months, and for almost every day use and such a reliable product, I find that to be a good price. My Estee Lauder counter gave me a pump for free & I just sanitize it and reuse it with each repurchase. But I think it's like 10 bucks, just get it if you don't make friends with your SA.

Disclaimers:
- Because the texture of this foundation is like PAINT (in a good way that feels very comfortable to the skin) you HAVE to have a moisturized base to lay it down on or it will NOT LOOK GOOD. It covers like a dream so if you have acne or issues you will love it, but you have to make sure your skin is hydrated first.
- If you are really oily like me, it's not a miraculous enough product that you still don't have to set with powder and setting spray. I start to look dewy at the 4-6 hour mark depending on the weather (but experience no dissappearance or patchiness which is why this is bomb). At that time I like to blot and/or apply pressed translucent powder and it looks good like I just applied for at least another 4 hours.
- Technique is very relative to how you're going to like this foundation. I find using a duo fibre brush to buff it in using light layers makes it look like my skin is naturally airbrushed. If you apply it with a damp beauty blender, it sheers it out alot & you get a very see thru light coverage, and I find the lasting power struggles even after setting powder and setting spray when using that method. Which might be what some people are going for, and in that case, applied that way those people will dig this foundation too.
