A whole lot of Lauder fabulosity
March 11, 2015
As you might know I’m a huge fan of ESTEE LAUDER products. Every last detail is top class and the quality plus efficacy is astounding. From their latest launches the following products caught my eye and if you’re anything like me, you’ll do a happy dance at this first one.
Enters THE LITTLE BLACK PRIMER (scream!). This mascara-looking little wonder has to be part of your makeup wardrobe, no matter how you got along without it before. Trust me, you’ll not be without this ever again. Firstly it primes lashes to hold their shape, so for instance if you curl your lashes before hand or if you do what I do and manipulate the shape of your lashes when applying mascara, this will hold the shape for you. Secondly it adds a fine black tint to your lashes which will make lashes look naturally defined if you want to wear it on it’s own or add extra volume for when you apply your mascara (try Estee Lauder Sumptuous Infinite mascara for volume and length). It will also make your normal mascara color look more intense if you wear it underneath. This black tinted formula is super long lasting and can go overnight without you looking like a panda the next morning. Thirdly, it acts as a top coat for your lashes over mascara which will turn any mascara you wear into a waterproof formula! It will prevent flaking and smudging and the special brush will help lift and curl lashes. How is that for amazing? Lashes are conditioned, stay soft and flexible and I’ve been wearing mine non-stop this past few days to put it through it’s paces – naturally it passed with flying colors. This is definitely what you never knew you always wanted! It is on shelf now and retails for R345.
If you struggle with uneven skin tone, listen up, there’s a new launch from Estee Lauder that will address just that. The ENLIGHTEN range is sure to make all the difference. Firstly the DARK SPOT CORRECTING NIGHT SERUM has a velvety soft milky formula that can be used by all skin types. The instant radiance I noticed is only the beginning. During the day time it defends against the damage that can cause hyperpigmentation and at night it moisturizes and soothes skin and combats redness, irritation, dark spots, sun spots, dullness and blemishes. This formula does not contain sun protection so make sure you use a sunscreen after you have applied your serum and moisturizer. Hand in hand with the serum is the EVEN SKINTONE CORRECTING CREME, also suitable for all skin types. Oh my goodness the texture of this moisturizer is simply divine! It works to create a more even skintone and fights the daily environmental aggressors your skin has to endure that may lead to hyperpigmentation. It is so so so completely nourishing and enveloping, moisturizes, calms irritated skin, refines the texture of your skin, reduces redness, brightens the look of dark and sun spots as well as blemishes. What I found interesting is that using it during the day, my skin’s level of moisture never decreased, even late in the afternoon, which is a major plus for me when using a moisturizer. Anti oxidants and anti irritants help protect the skin during the day and my skin just glowed all day long. Love love love this moisturizer.
Both the above Enlighten products launched last week, try it and let me know what you think!
