Flawless base with Estee Lauder

Estee Lauder Beauty Review
I bet if some of you read my posts, you’ll think ‘bloody hell – Jen is finally trying Double Wear!’  Believe me, it’s been a long time coming. I think Estee Lauder is just a brand I underestimated and wasn’t really bothered by until I finally took the plunge. Like, is it just me who associates Estee Lauder with posh older women?! (probably just me). Anyway, moving swiftly on – I can 100% confirm that this magnificent combination of products has left my skin GLOWED UP.
Who knew that the Illuminating primer underneath Double Wear foundation would be such a match made in heaven? I’ve tried so many brightening primers over the years from all different ends of the price spectrum but this has blown me away. You know when you find a product and instantly you’re like ‘yep, this is the one’… well that’s what this primer is for me. Even better than my beloved Laura Mercier. If any of my readers suffer from oily skin but still want a dewy look thats going to last, try this – it’s an absolute dreamboat. I’m 100% going to buy it at full size once I run out (which will be sooner rather than later because I’m slapping it on like there’s no tomorrow.)
Which brings me onto my next point, Double Wear is exactly what it says on the bottle. It’s not particularly my ultimate fave, coming from wearing Nars Sheer Glow for the past year, I find that it’s a little too matte for me to work with. However, the lasting power is insane. Take it from my interning experience. Bustling around horrendously humid London, sitting in a sticky fashion cupboard didn’t even phase Double Wear, it still looked perfectly intact on the sweaty tube ride home 9 hours later.  So it’s not all doom and gloom, I can see it’s going to be a staple come winter, but in summer I tend to wear lighter foundations – so I’ve not been wearing this most days but from when I have – it’s a great little formula.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair

Believe it or not the skincare is just as marvellous, possibly even better. I’ve been splurging on skincare so much lately that I’ve got so many different things queueing up to be tested. But, I just can’t stop using these badboys. The DayWear moisturiser is a really soft and light day cream which sinks into your skin pretty quickly. The thing I love most about it is that it has such a nice smell, I I hate when SPF moisturisers smell artificial and awful? totally puts me off! 
The cult favourite Advanced Night Repair has also worked wonders. Though, given that it’s quite expensive, I’m using the teeniest amount so I can treasure it for as long as possible. Applying this on a night is so soothing, it has hyaluronic acid in the formula too, so my skin is really clear and hydrated at the moment. I don’t think I’ll repurchase it though, purely because of the price and the size of the bottles, but for now I’m just letting it go and loving my fresh af skin.

    The Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum is one of the best serums I have ever used, however, I haven't re-purchased since it is too expensive, but I hope I will in the future since I loved using it! x

    What if I tell you that I haven't used Estee Lauder yet? About time I guess.

    I heard so much hype about this foundation, but to be honest I stay away from foundation and prefer something much lighter like a bb or skin tint. I do love the ANR serum, I purchased it this year and has been my holy grail. I wonder why I haven't tried it sooner.

    I personally love Estee Lauder for skincare products but they are a bit too expensive – I find it hard to bring myself to buy them, even though I know they are totally worth it! x

    I actually don't own a lot of make-up but I do love Estee Lauder, especially their mascara 😀 Great post!

    That primer sounds amazing, I have an oily t zone so it's always hard to find an illuminating primer that works for me. Definitely going to check this one out!
