Estee Lauder

I recently went on a little bit of a make-up and skin care spree. I decided to invest in some high end makeup since they had a gift with purchase. Nordstrom's had a special gift with an Estée Lauder purchase. I have been wanting to try the Double Wear Maximum Cover foundation for a while now so I thought it would be the perfect time to. I purchased two products in order to reach the total to get the free gift.


1. Double Wear Stay in Place Gel Eyeliner – I purchased this in color 01 stay onyx with .1oz of product. This is described as having a 15 hr staying power. This really does work amazingly, glides on smoothly to create a precise line or can be smudged out to give a softer look. As for staying power im not sure if it last 15 hours but I can say that it lasted my whole work day without budging so about 10 hours.

2. Double Wear Maximum Cover Camouflage Makeup for Face and Body- Contains and SPF 15 in a 1 oz squeeze bottle. I chose color 03 creamy vanilla, Estee lauder describes this foundation as having 12 hr staying power and a natural liquid crème consistency to cover any and all skin imperfections. I have been wanting to try this foundation forever, I love full coverage foundations and have heard great things about this one. I can say that so far all the hype is true, this foundation has been around forever and you cant go wrong with a tried and true. It gives great coverage without feeling like I have on a pound of foundation. This is definitely a product to try if you have spots and discoloration you want to hide but hate the feel of full coverage foundation.

The gift with this purchase was amazing I think it made my purchases well worth the price. I have only tried a couple of these products so I will write what I think of those below.



1. Timezone Line & Wrinke Reducing Crème- Contains an SPF 15 and is for normal to combination skin. Directions say to apply all over face AM and PM after your serum. I have not seen a huge affect on my skin but it does smell wonderful.

2. Soft Clean Start Tender Crème Cleanser – This is a cream cleanser for dry skin, describe as gentle yet effective cleansing. I dont see this working for me, having oily comination skin it leaves my skin feeling dirtier than before. I could see this working on someone with really sensitive dry skin.

3. Pur color eyeshadow & eyeshadow duo - This makes a great travel companion. It has a good range of colors with quality pigment to create several different looks. I also liked that this came instruction cards on creating two different looks with the colors in the pallete. It's a slim case with a huge mirror. 

4. Sumptuous Bold Volume – Lifting Mascara in 01 black. This came in small travel/mini size. This is by far my favorite thing that came with this set. It has to be the best mascara I have found in a while. I love my lashes to be full and lengthy, usually creating this look by applying several coates of mulitple types of mascara. This gave me the look I love in one mascara and only two coats! I will be absolutely buying a full size tube.  

5. Advanced Night Repair - Claims to reduce signs of aging and give more radiant skin.

6. Pure Color Gloss in 47 Peach Sizzle Shimmer and Pure Color Crystal Lipstick Ripe Papaya Crystal Shimmer.
