Face and Eye Makeup Review: Estee Lauder
I am a makeup fanatic! I like to try new things, but I mostly just use what I have unless I see something that really catches my attention and I have one of those "must-have" moments. Being a girl that is into more of the bright colors and edgier looks - I normally go for brands such as MAC, NYX, Max Factor, etc. Recently, I was flipping through a copy of Lucky [a magazine that I love and any girl that loves fashion/makeup and everything about it MUST pick this mag up and see for yourself just how great it is!] and found a voucher for a free mascara that I can obtain by going to any Estee Lauder counter.
I decided to go to one at a new Dillards that just opened up near us. The lady that helped me was especially nice and when she asked if she could give me a "makeover", I complied. I was literally wowed by the makeup and not only did I get my free mascara, but I ended up getting the foundation and eye makeup remover, too! Definitely not in my budget, but it was one of those "must-have" moments lol. The lady was also nice enough to give me a free sample of the foundation in a tiny bottle, so I haven't even had to touch my purchased bottle of foundation, yet!
Onto the reviews!
Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara [$ unknown]
Obviously, being free and all, it's just a little trial size, but it's great! It's not too clumpy and goes on great - stays on all day. I always get my mascara/eyeliner in black and this one is a definite change from my others. The other ones I have are barely noticeable when I put them on, but this one really stands out.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation $33.50
This foundation is amazing! Goes on smooth, doesn't even feel like you have anything on your face, at all! It's humidity proof, so when you're melting - your makeup stays on. SPF 10. The color I have is shell. I am very fair skinned and this color matches perfectly and you can't even tell I have it on. :)
Estee Lauder Gentle Eye Makeup Remover $15.50
BEST investment I have ever made when it comes to makeup remover products! I usually use those cleansing wipes, but nope, this stuff is beyond awesome! Takes my caked on eyeliner [oh c'mon, I like raccoon eyes once in awhile :X] right off without any trouble! This bottle is going to last me for ages!
