I have tried so may things over the years from Estee Lauder, it was rather difficult to pick just a few products. From skincare to makeup, EL has some legendary products that you just shouldn't be without!
I loved it when I previously used it, using it again made me think, why I wasn't using this all the time?! This beautiful serum hydrates my skin by penetrating into the skin with just a couple of drops! In the morning, my skin feels absolutely amazing! It looks brighter, feel plumper and I can just feel my skin thanking me. Being in my 20's, it makes me think that in years to come I will reap the anti-ageing benefits of this brilliant serum too! I've previously spoken about the ANR eye cream (post here) which is also excellent.
I don't know why it took me so long to try this! Goodness me! The DW foundation is a godsend for oily skinned gals like myself who want a good coverage without looking cakey and an oily mess by the end of the day. The wide shade range makes it great for women who struggle to find foundation with the correct undertone and shade. I love how it helps control shine yet doesn't look flat or 'too mattifying'. It's definitely up there with my favourite foundations.
I’ve never been a bronzer person as such. I’m a fan of Benefit’s Hoola bronzer (review here) for contouring mostly, but not all over. EL’s Bronze Goddess gives the most sun kissed bronzed glow ‘back-from-South-of-France’ kind of glow. The powder is really fine so you can easily build up depending how much of a glow you want, there is slight shimmer which enhance that glow and you don’t have to go in with a separate highlighter. I’ve been in love with this to prep my winter self slowly for summer.
I've tried my fair share of lipsticks, and these are one of my favourites. The formula is what sets it apart, they are the creamiest and the most nourishing lipsticks I've tried to date. The rich pigmentation compliments the creamy formula and gives a satin finish. You can see the swatches of the shade 'Tumultuous Pink' here. I've written up quite a list to invest in some more shades!
This is in my top five favourite perfumes of all time. I love Modern Muse too, but this just has something a little extra making it slightly more irresistible than it’s older sister. If you read my Christmas fragrance gift guide post, you can read up on the notes. This make me feel so elegant, I can't quite describe it; if you haven't given this a try yet, you simply must!
The newest release by EL which I was most skeptical about; yet it impressed me like no other. I’m the biggest cynic when it comes to these types of products, I mean who needs a primer for their lashes anyway?! Let me tell you, I do, that’s who! I’m pretty sure I can go without mascara now, which for me is unheard of. It gives you the lashes that you want without looking like you have anything on your lashes. It’s not like clear mascara, or anything I’ve tried before. It’s completely unique in its own right, and I will post a full review and demo so you can see for yourself.
