January 23, 2015
UP CLOSE: Estée Lauder signifies the beginning of the spring season on our beauty floors. While you might still be on the hunt for the perfect winter moisturizer and a serum that hydrates without leaving an oily feel on the skin, we also believe that a beauty cabinet has room for new, beautifully packaged additions. Since we are always into improving one’s beauty regimen, this week we asked our beauty ambassadors to speak about the top Estée Lauder products – those that they’ve recently discovered and can’t do without. After you read their mini reviews below, share with us your favorite Estée Lauder products and tell us why you’re a fan!
Gone are the days when we had to decide between long-wear colored or hydrated lips. Today’s formulas provide hydration and shiny color. Marry this technology with the beautiful soft-click bullet case and you have Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Shine Sculpting Shine Lipstick. For the winter, I was sold on Insolent Plum, but I recently have been wearing Discreet for the coming spring. At first I thought the color was a taupe beige, but it is actually a subtle, refined nude. The design of the tube is so intuitive; dare I say you don’t even need a mirror? I wear this lipstick shade with a softly lined eye and dramatic mascara. Bonus points: This lasted through apps and a glass of wine. – Lindsay Rogers of Belle Belle Beauty Blog
Simultaneously fresh and warm, Aerin Lauder Waterlily Sun is positively mood lifting! The clean, green lilt of bergamot, jasmine and, of course, water lily bathes the woman wearing it in a bright floral elixir with impressive lasting power. I adore the fact that the fragrance is grounded by a soft musk that calls to mind the comforting warmth of the sun, thereby setting it apart from its lighter, more traditional floral colleagues. From the jade green topper to the classic Art Deco design of the flacon, the aesthetics of the bottle are as enchanting as the juice it holds. All in all, this scent is a must for one seeking an elegantly modern twist on a verdant floral. – Rachel Anise of Beauty Professor
Ten thousand hours worth of work went into creating Estée Lauder’s Re-Nutriv Diamond Ultimate Serum, and the ingredients are just as intense. Black diamond truffle extracts are meant to firm, heal and improve skin texture, and I love the results so far. The dual pump bottle houses the rare extract in the golden vial, while a combination of high-tech skin refiners and enhancers rest in the platinum vial. Just mix the elixirs in your hand and apply to your face after cleansing. The lightweight serum is remarkably silky and sinks smoothly right into skin. – Nicole Pearl of thebeautygirl.com
I like to switch fragrances each season, but I have never found a fragrance perfect for the transition of the season. Well, not until I was introduced to Aerin’s Iris Meadow. When I first smelled Iris Meadow, it was like a soft spring preview in the middle of winter. The mixture is floral and citrusy with a creamy woody musk that balances it all, and makes Iris Meadow the perfect daily scent, especially during the dark winter days. – Monica Abney of Classy & Fabulous
There is a reason why Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair is one of the brand’s top selling products. This fountain of youth in the form of a bottle delivers instant results by hydrating the skin, while also working “long term” to brighten, clarify and wage a battle against UV rays, pollution, smoke etc., which our skin is exposed to on a regular basis. The serum’s texture is light, non-greasy and absorbs very quickly, leaving skin hydrated, fresh and glowing. It’s easy to see why it has always been such a favorite among women. – Christie Moeller of icanstyleu.com
