Liquid -Este Lauder -Double Wear Stay-In-Place Liquid Makeup

My HG guys honestly . For a year and a half now I’ve been try testing different foundations but after all the fuss I’ve come back to this & I forgot just how much I love it . It’s definitely a full coverage foundation for sure . It’s staying power is absolutely amazing , it doesn’t crease fade or transfer which is GREAT. The dry down is definitely a matte finish but it really depends what products you use with it . At the moment I’m leaning towards a fuller coverage matte look considering I work 9 hour shifts & I want something that will look exactly how it did when I applied it or even better . I think this foundation is just really good if you want something that LASTS but covers everything . It’s consistency is quite thick on its own although I have been mixing it with my Bobbi brown long lasting foundation just to lighten it up a bit so it does spread a bit easier . I use the Hourglass mineral veil primer underneath so let me tell ya my foundation does not move anywhere . & it looks smooth & wonderful I just love it . Only con is the packaging I wish they had a pump !

Fragrances -Este Lauder -Cinnabar


This is a wonderful scent from Estee Lauder. A tip though, find a bottle that looks like the one featured here. There is a new formulation that isn't quite as good, it is in a different bottle. This is a rich woody scent. I pick up on the cloves, cinnamon, sandalwood, patchouli. This is a perfect fall/winter scent. It is sexy as hell! It may be 40 years old, but it's an amazing scent (at least in this bottle or earlier). If you like Opium, Shalimar, etc you will love this!

Treatments (Face) -Este Lauder -Fruition [DISCONTINUED]

on 12/10/2018 12:52:00 PM


Ive been thinking about Estée Lauder products lately & I remembered when this serum fruition came on to the market in the 90 s when the hot ticket was alpha hydrox acids to help exfoliate the skin! & I received a sample of their fruition to try from a Estée Lauder bonus gift!& I used it once & it gave me a clogged pore Bc probably due to the silicones inside of it ! & so I gave it to my aunt to use Bc she has dry skin & it wasn't appropriate for my oily skin type! In general I find that Estée Lauder products are way overpriced for what they are worth & are too heavily fragranced for my sensitive skin! I must use their completely fragrance free Clinique brand of skincare products! Although in the very distant past I did fall in love with a certain oil free hydrogel moisturizer Estée Lauder made ! It was a cool blue gel in this glass bottle which was nice & neat & look like a laser gun ! LOL & it was fragrance free & a wonderful gel moisturizer for my oily skin & I like it so much but unfortunately it got discontinued!

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

on 12/9/2018 11:25:00 PM


I never actually bought this product to try on my face but I have However tested out on my hands whenever they got dry while shopping in Macy's! LOL! I personally think this serum is way overpriced for what it's really worth! Which I think is basically a primer like product just full of silicones in it to give you just a fake sensorial feeling of silkyness that tricks you to thinking something is happening to your skin! I could imagine that if I applied this serum on my face I would get lots of clog pores Bc IOC of the heavy silicones in it ! It does feel good & smells very fresh Bc of the extcts of coriander & grapefruit in it ! Again it's just a sensorial thing ! I personally would not buy this stuff! Years ago serious skincare made a glucosamine serum that was light like water which was so much better than this expensive stuff!

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

on 12/9/2018 1:45:00 PM


I have been using the old version for years and unfortunately it got reformulated to this....I have combination dry sensitive skin and i found this new version very also has a much thicker texture which is hard to spread...the finish is also much more matte than the older version. i tried to mix it with some serum or oil, still doesn't help....will not use again.

Liquid -Este Lauder -Double Wear Stay-In-Place Liquid Makeup


My first ever MUA review! Here we go!

About about my skin: no acne, a bit of acne scarring, slight discoloration on the cheek bones, nose and chin, normal skin which goes dry in winter. I use the shade Fresco.

I haven't purchased this foundation yet, but I have tried several samples. Have only applied it with a beauty blender - no brush.

The first time I wore this was a nightmare. I applied way to much, didn't use a primer, set it with powder AND used concealer. I had no idea how full coverage it really is. I wore it for about 8 hours but it felt dry and tight very quickly. Having heard so many good things about this foundation I decided to give it a few more tries and I am so happy I did.

I use it on thoroughly moisturized skin (hydrating serum + moisturizer + Maybellines hydrating primer) and it works really well. I don't apply too much as I find it gets cake really fast if you do. No concealer, no setting powder. I just let it dry down and then go over the creasing in my fine lines under the eye with the clean side of the beauty blender to absorb left-over product. After having done the rest of my makeup I set it with setting spray and that's it.

I LOVE it. Here in Scandinavia it is getting quite cold and therefore it always wear a scarf when it go out. This foundation is the only foundation I have ever tried that does not transfer AT ALL. It stays put all day, no matter what.

It is absolutely on the dry side, so I strongly recommend that you moisturize really well before applying this, but other than that it's a great foundation. It does give you that "ghost look" when you apply it because it's SO full coverage, but I don't mind. I like to shape my face with bronzer, countour and blush. The best thing about it is that I don't need concealer under my eyes with this foundation.

Definitely will buy whenever I can afford it!

Mascara -Este Lauder -Sumptuous Extreme

on 11/30/2018 11:48:00 AM


This was average, if that. My main goal is volume. After 2-3 coats, looked like I had on barely any mascara. I have black lashes and normally go without mascara, unless dressing up or for an event. Had high hopes based on the hype. The brush is full and nice, and pretty packaging, but otherwise not worth it at all.

Fragrances -Este Lauder -Pleasures

on 11/30/2018 6:58:00 AM


This is a nice scent but as soon as I get a whiff of it, I get a horrible migraine and my head feels like it is gonna explode. I have to be careful walking into a department store, cause if there is any of this fragrance in the air, I will get this terrible migraine headache almost instantly. I had a bottle of this years ago, and I had this unrelenting month long migraine and the only way I knew it was Pleasures was I was fine till I sprayed this. So I associate this scent with pain unfortunately. I remember it being a fresh floral fragrance and I really actually liked it a lot. I would probably still wear this if I could.

Fragrances -Este Lauder -Beautiful Eau de Parfum

on 11/29/2018 9:33:00 PM


This is such a pretty, romantic and feminine scent. On me, it smells like a bouquet of fresh flowers of rose, Jasmine, tuberose and lilies. It is not a sharp floral like so many other florals out there, but it dries down to a soft, smooth, almost creamy floral scent that smells yummy. It really smells like a pretty woman in love.the scent is so we'll constructed that there is no loud notes, as the whole bouquet softly envelops you. Like all fragrances, it works with your skin chemistry and if you have a stronger, more acidic natural scent, it might smell different, making the fragrances turn more acidic or even sour. I own so many perfumes, and still, is one of those fragrances I have to have on my dressing table .It is a classic for a reason.

Moisturizers -Este Lauder -Advanced Time Zone Age Reversing Line/Wrinkle Hydrating Gel Oil-Free

on 11/29/2018 10:35:00 AM


I've been using this stuff daily for about a month or so, and my skin is noticeably smoother. No joke pores have basically vanished, way less dark spots and hyper pigmentation, and far less redness around the mouth and nose area which is huge for me.

It also happens to keep my face clear of blemishes and hormonal spots.

When I first started using this at night, I would apply my Clarins moisturizer over top since my skin was extremely dehydrated from Retin-A, and the ATZ was not enough.

Now, I only need to apply the ATZ by itself (I use it both day and night) and it seems to be just enough moisture that I need.

For all the reviews below, I noticed many are the result of using a trial/sample size. I appreciate reading feedback, but there is no way you will truly see the effects after using this serum/gel only a handful of applications.

Yes I will continue to buy because this stuff is amazing and there are noticeable results.

Treatments (Eye) -Este Lauder -Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix


I feel that the ANR eye serum synchronized complex delivers a better result.
I noticed my fine lines under the eyes are more visible whenever i wear concentrate matrix under my makeup.

The greatest disappointment is the packaging.
I'm wondering how I will fully 'finish' this product given the poor design :(

I've given 1 'lipstick' rating under price because of how little product i'll get.

I won't purchase again once I finish it, i'll probably get another bottle of the synchronized complex.

Fragrances -Este Lauder -Youth Dew

on 11/28/2018 12:05:00 AM


Youth Dew no longer exists and you will not find it when you get home with your new bottle that looks like the old bottles . No one will warn you that you are buying a weak vapor that will totally dissipate after five minutes , max . So much for integrity at the Lauder House.

The same goes for Beautiful. It looks the same, but only a faint vapor appears and then it disappears swiftly after you have spent your money. This is not a case of tweaking a formula. It is bait and switch and you will not be getting perfume , just a disappearing vapor . Buyers beware .

I will miss my long relationships with Youth Dew and Beautiful. But I have no respect for the game of bait and switch and for selling products that simply are not inside the bottle .

I predict a swift demise for this company .

Powder -Este Lauder -Double Wear Stay-in-Place Powder Makeup

on 11/27/2018 1:57:00 PM


I am... so torn about this product. I love - LOVE - my EL Double Wear Nude foundation, and I bought this to set it with on the recommendation of the EL sales person, and it does work great for that. It doesn't look heavy or cakey, and it really holds everything in place, especially on days I can't/don't want to tote around a bunch of products so I can touch-up my makeup. My problem is that any time I wear sunscreen under it, it oxidizes like crazy. Doesn't matter what sunscreen it is, it still does it. If I just use foundation primer (MUFE Step 1 Hydrating Primer, for the record) I have zero issues with it oxidizing, but most days I do wear sunscreen under this, so it's kind of a big problem. I should note that I can set that combination of sunscreen and liquid foundation w/ other powders and I do not have any issues, it's literally just this powder. Because of that I have a really hard time justifying spending $42 + tax on this, and I can't imagine repurchasing it.
