Summer launches always make me feel really happy because itās a fun reminder that warm days are soon approaching. Iām ready to trade in our 6-month long winter for that warm weather, baby!
Today Iāve got some new bits from Estee Lauder to share with yāall. I love Estee Lauderās summer releases! Especially their Bronze Goddess Line.
All I want to be is a Bronze Goddess! I used to be really tan as a kid but as I discovered ~the internet~ I spent all my days indoors and reverted back to my natural pale skin tone (lol)
I long to achieve that bronzey, glowy skin that is plastered all over my Instagram feed. One day Iāll get it. Iām going to try making an effort to tan a bit this summer, or try out some fake tanning productsā¦
Anyway, what do we have here?
The Estee Lauder Summer 2018 Collection!
Iāll be introducing 4 new items to the collection today:
Ah spring! The snow is melting, the days are getting warmer, and…a flood of new beauty releases! I like adjusting my makeup and skincare regime to suit the changing weather, as I tend to veer away from heavier skincare and makeup. I’ve got a few fresh new Spring products to share with you today- both skincare and makeup! Let’s take a look š
Hello lovelies! Last week I was invited to the fall media preview for Estee Lauder and Aerin – so exciting! Estee Lauder is one of my all time favourite beauty brands, especially for their luxurious skincare collections. (I was pretty much raised on it because my mom is a huge fan of them and has most of their products, hehe.) The autumn 2016 Estee Lauder collection introduces a gorgeous new line of anti-aging and hydrating products, as well as a revoltionary new cushion stick foundation, and an alluring new addition to the Modern Muse fragrance line. Keep reading for a look at the products, as well as my thoughts, a few of my Estee Lauder Faves!
Today I’ll be showing you some of The Estee Edit‘s new face and lip products! I previously reviewed the Metalishadow Creme + Powder in Scarlet Eclipse, and the EDGiest Kohl Shadowstick in last week’s post, which you can read about here!
Surprisingly enough, I have never really tried out Estee Lauder products. It’s one of my mother’s favourite brands, and our upstairs bathroom is dotted with Estee Products! The packaging always seemed so luxe, and the price point was quite high for my student budget. However,Ā The Estee Edit (#beautyattitudes) is a new beauty line from Estee Lauder – the whole essence of the brand focuses on being fun, trendy, and fresh! I’m loving it so far. I haven’t seen many other reviews or swatches on the internet yet, so I’m very excited to give you an early look into this line. It will be released exclusively at Sephora in March.
The Estee Edit White Mud Exfoliating Scrub + Mask
This is an exfoliating cleanser, scrub, and mask that comes housed in a plastic white squeeze bottle. It has the same sprayed silver design with blue accents as the rest of the packaging. It’s a white cream with mini exfoliating beads. It has a soft, clean, floral scent which reminds me of spa treatments.
Made with White Porcelain ClayĀ and Jojoba beads, for dual -action detoxing and pore-refining. Can be used as a daily wash-off scrub, and twice weekly as a 10 minute purifying facial. Instructions: Gently massage onto clean skin in circles, leave on 5 minutes and rinse.
As a scrub / face wash: Ā It comes out of the bottle looking like a clay formula, but becomes more like a cream when water is added. The texture is smooth with very small microbeads – definitely a lot more gentle than other exfoliating scrubs that I’ve used in the past. Leaves skin feeling soft but not dried out.
As a mask: I left this mask on for about ten minutes – I didn’t apply it too thickly and I really scrubbed it in. After ten minutes, the mask was dry, but not tightening or uncomfortable. Again, it left my face feeling really soft after I washed it off. The floral scent lingered and it was super nice!
Beam TeamĀ is a hydrating glow cream – my first impression was that it was a super glowy primer or liquid illuminator – I would compare it to Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector. When applied, it reveals a golden glowy finish on the skin. This would be perfect mixed in with foundation during the summer months for that ~bronzey sun kissed glow~!!
The interesting part about this is it’s a two part product – you have the liquid illuminator in the actual tube, and in the cap you’ll find a flip out mirror and cream concentrate. It’s a very similar shade to the actual cream, but a slight bit more bronze. It’s great for highlighting cheekbones, brow bones, and any other areas you want to catch a bit more sun!
Beam Team Hydrate + Glow is a double-duty double-deckerāhydration with two levels of illumination in one product. Itās a complexion hybrid, meaning it creates an instant change in how your skin looks while simultaneously delivering skin care ingredients. The tube holds an amazing, illuminating moisturizer with hyaluronic acid that gives an instant glow. Plus, the touch-on concentrate under the cap gives you a high-impact shimmer.
As you can see in the swatches, Ā it’s very glowy! I haven’t had a chance to mix this into my foundation yet as I’m more of a fan of a matte/satin finish base, but the cream highlighter is lovely to use. It gives the most subtle, natural glow. And it has an absolutely gorgeous vanilla and floral scent! Find it on Sephora – $55 CAD.
The Estee Edit Flash Photo GlossĀ
This is a thick, luxurious gloss with a subtle blue microshimmer – hard to catch on camera but you can kinda see it in the flash photo. In the tube, it’s looks almost white with a blue-purple duochrome tinge. In daylight, it looks like a natural clear gloss. In flash photos and direct lighting, it creates a subtle yet noticeable extra dimension to the lips!
It’s thick and a bit sticky, but does not come off easily! It feels ultra moisturizing on the lips. It is also fragranced with a super yummy vanilla scent.
A high-tech gloss with a cool blue tint to highlight the white of teeth.Ā This innovative gloss features cool blue shade that emphasizes the white in your smile. Infused with an addictive vanilla scent, it creates a photo-ready, high-shine finish that can be worn alone or layered over your favorite lipstick.
I was beyond excited when this lovely package from The Estee Edit by Estee Lauder showed up on my doorstep!
The Estee Edit (#beautyattitudes) is a new beauty line from Estee LauderĀ – the whole essence of the brand focuses on being fun, trendy, and fresh! I’m loving it so far. I haven’t seen many other reviews or swatches on the internet yet, so I’m very excited to give you an early look into this line. It will be released exclusively at Sephora in March. I remember seeing a big poster at Sephora a few months ago featuring Kendall Jenner and Irene Kim but I didn’t really know what it was about.
Metalishadow Creme + Powder in Scarlet Eclipse / with swatches – $29 CAD
Find it here. This is a cream eyeshadow and loose pigment duo.Ā The packaging is pretty cute! Plastic white casing with a sprayed foil effect. Here’s the shade Scarlet eclipse – the top lid flips up to reveal a deep scarlet red cream eyeshadow, which can be used as a stand alone colour, a base, or a liner. The bottom section can be unscrewed to reveal a glittery antique gold pigment, which works fabulously as an all-over lid colour.
The cream colour is very pigmented, and is quite pigmented – it almost feels like a lip product? It does stain the skin though, so make sure to wear a primer or something underneath. I like using this as a colourful eyeliner because it’s a deep red and can be quite wearable! I’m not one for bright or crazy colours, so this works well for me.
The foil shadowĀ applies quite sheerly by itself – it’s more of a glitter than a microshimmer. It’s an antique gold, copper colour. You can achieve a shiny foil effect by using a primer or glitter adhesive underneath for full impact!
The ultimate cream shadow with metal mix power for knock out eyes! Intense depth and the flashiest foil finish. Wear loose metal powder over highly pigmented cream shadow or alone on face and eyes. Available in 3 Shades: Black Star, Aquanova, and Scarlet Eclipse.
The EDGIest Kohl Shadowstick in Black Viper / with swatches.
I don’t own too many eye shadow sticks – I own the Burberry highlighter which I absolutely love using on my lid, but that’s about it! This was my first time experimenting with a black shadow stick, and here’s my attempt at a lower kohl lined smoky look.
The shadow stick is very easy to use – simply twist up, scribble on the lid, and smudge out!
It should be noted that the shade Violet Taboo cannot be worn on the waterline.
24 hour wear, shadow and liner in one. Wonāt budge, transfer, or fade and it can be worn on the waterline.* The EDGIest Kohl Shadow Stick does it all!
Available in 10 shades: Black Viper, Frost Bite, Guilt, Twisted, Jaded, Royal Scandal, Iced, Grounded, Spiced, Violet Taboo*
*THIS SHADE CANNOT BE WORN ON THE WATERLINE. I’m not exactly sure why, but this is stated on the product info sheet!
My take on the eye look…
Estee Edit Metalishadow Scarlet Eclipse cream as liner, and foil glitter all over lid.
Urban Decay Naked 2 palette, Primal and Undone in crease and outer V.
Estee EditĀ The EDGIest Kohl Shadowstick in Black Viper on waterline.
Benefit They’re Real Mascara
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper to draw on some bottom lashes.
Aaaand here’s my full face look! I paired this with Sephora’s Rouge Infusion Lip Stain in Ruby Extract, which matched the eye colour quite closely! A fun vampy look!
I absolutely love these two products from The Estee Edit – can’t wait to see what other products will be offered when the line officially releases! Stay tuned next week for a another look at #theesteeedit line – the Beam Team Hydrate and Glow, Flash Photo Gloss, and White Mud Exfoliating Scrub and Mask!
