A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to get my makeup done by Gaby, the Education Manager of Estée Lauder Austria at the Counter at Müller. You’ve maybe seen it in my Instagram Story. It was all about the famous Double Wear foundation and as I’ve never tried it, I was pretty excited!!
Gaby asked me how I usually do my makeup and I told her that my go-to is a fresh, healthy, natural look. As you all know my skin is freaked out a little at the moment so I was curious to see how the makeup would do on my face.
Double Wear Stay-in-Place Liquid Makeup LSF 10
So we all know that this foundation is iconic. The Double Wear Stay-in-Place Liquid Makeup comes in 55 shades, what is simply amazing! Mine is ‚Sand‘ (Sand has a warm undertone). It’s described as ‚Flawless. Natural. Matte. Feels lightweight and so comfortable, you won’t believe it’s super long wear. No touchups needed.‘
It stays color true, is oil-free and oil-controlling, waterproof (totally noticed this when I removed my makeup at night afterwards) and transfer-resistant.
I love that you can work so easily with it. As you all know I don’t like when foundation feels heavy on the skin but with this one I haven’t had this feeling. What is amazing because the coverage is out of this world. Gaby applied it with a brush, I would probably use my Beauty Blender for it or a brush as well, depending on how much coverage I want.
Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II
This repair serum is also one of the bestsellers of Estée Lauder. It fights the key signs of aging. Advanced Night Repair is a ‚powerful nighttime renewal for radiant, youthful-looking skin. Instantly adds radiance. Intensely hydrates.‘
I hope you all know that oil skin can be dehydrated as well and that’s why Gaby used this serum on my skin. You can mix it in with your foundation when applying to get a more radiant look.
I love that it’s oil-free, fragrance-free and won’t clog your pores.
Maximum Cover Camouflage Makeup für Gesicht und Körper SPF 15
After the foundation Gaby brought in this little wonder weapon!! I still had a little redness from blemishes on my skin but the Maximum Cover Camouflage Makeup concealed them all – I was truly impressed. I already knew Camouflage Makeup from my Makeup Artist class but I have never used it on my face. ‚This soothing liquid-creme makeup is designed to camouflage all skin imperfections, including surgical and acne scars, tattoos, birthmarks, sun spots and varicose veins.‘ as described by Estée Lauder. Highly recommending this one if you have trouble with your skin and nothing seems to cover it. My shade is ‚Desert Beige‘.
Pure Color Envy Lash Multi-Effects Mascara
This mascara was totally new to me and I haven’t seen something like it before. It’s actually a hybrid brush – means on one side of the brush there are bristles and on the other it’s a ‚molded brush‘. The side with the bristles gives volume and lifts and the other side if for separation and length. Pretty genius if you ask me. There’s also conditioning oil in the formula to keep your lashes silky soft.
Pure Color Love Lipstick
If you’re still not over nude tones and mat finish (I’m totally not!!) this one is for you. The shade is called ‚Blaise Buff‘ and it looked gorgeous on my lips, enough color to see some effort was put in this look but not over the top, so a wonderful lipstick for everyday wear.
Pure Color Envy Blush Powder
You should know it already, I’m a sucker for peach blushes!! This shade is called ‚Peach Passion‘ and of course I love it. The texture is silky smooth and gives a fresh and healthy look on the cheeks. I think peach toned blushes compliment almost every complexion and if you don’t own one, you should change that right now.
I can’t wait to play a little more with all these products, especially the foundation is the one I want to test under different conditions. Have you already tried any of these products from Estée Lauder? Let me know in the comments.
