I wanted to share with you my thoughts on some of the new products from The Estée Edit by Estée Lauder line. I received some products at the media event I attended and also ordered a couple products that I fell in love with at the event. Overall I’m quite impressed with this collection. In includes some really versatile staple products as well as some really fun and innovative ones.
The packaging of the products is absolutely gorgeous. White, shiny silver, bright cobalt blue, and spray paint effects make the look of the line both luxe and edgy at the same time. I’m really pleased with aesthetic of this collection and I find it quite unique.
First up let’s take a look at The Estée Edit Mattified Lipstick ($22 US/$26 CAD) and The Estée Edit Lip Flip Shade Transformer ($22 US/$26 CAD). The lipsticks are packaged in silver with blue spreading from the top down in a fading spray paint gradient. I have the Mattified Lipstick in the shade You’re Welcome which is a stunning, vibrant true red. This is an absolutely gorgeous color in an impeccable formula. I really, really love this formula. The color payoff is excellent and they are very comfortable to wear. They are a satin matte finish. Not drying or chalky. They are infused with 20% conditioning oils, including jojoba oil, for a hydrating and luxe finish. There are some really bold and unique shades in the range including a teal and bright orange. I find myself wishing there were more “traditional” shades offered as I adore this formula. I don’t tend to have the nerve to rock a red lip.
The Lip Flip Shade Transformers are packaged in solid cobalt blue and are available in Turn Up (a brightening yellow) and Turn Down (a deepening black). I think these are a really cool product and will come in handy for women who don’t have an extensive lip colour collection or for professionals looking to streamline their kits.
In addition to the lip products, I also received The Estée Edit by Estée Lauder Pink Peony Overnight Water Pack ($50 US/$58 CAD). This overnight mask is a light water-gel formula that gives skin an instant boost of hydration and antioxidants. It includes pink peony to soothe, hyaluronic acid to hydrate and plump, along with goji berry, blueberry, and cranberry. It has a really pretty scent that is not too overwhelming. I think this mask is best suited for those with oily-normal and combination skin. My dry skin sucks it up right away making it more of an instant treatment vs an overnight one.
The two products I purchased are the The Estée Edit by Estée Lauder Flash Photo Powder ($32 US/$40 CAD) and the The Estée Edit by Estée Lauder Pore Vanishing Stick ($28 US/$34 CAD). I saw them demonstrated at the event and was impressed enough I wanted to give them a try.
The Flash Photo Powder is available in one shade, 01 Blue Bright. It is a translucent, oil-absorbing powder in a soft bright blue that gives the skin a subtle illumination. I thought being so fair it would be fun to try the blue tinged powder. I think given I’m so fair though I don’t really notice the brightening effect that others with deeper skin tones may benefit from. For me it is a very finely milled and elegant powder that does a lovely job of setting my makeup without dulling my dry skin.
I picked up the Pore Vanishing Stick, not because I have an issue with large pores, but rather I saw demonstrated how well this product performs at making fine lines disappear. I also read some reviews of women raving about how it did a great job of preventing foundation from settling into deeper expression lines. It has a tinted core with a clear, oil-absorbing outer ring. The tinted core is supposed to aid in making the formula universal for all skin tones. It does disappear against my skin. This stick is targeted at oily-combination skin as it mattifies and absorbs oil. Because of this I found it could accentuate dryness on my skin but it did do a beautiful job of making the pores on and around my nose disappear as well as smoothing out fine lines around my eyes. I applied it to my smile lines and it did reduce the amount of foundation that settled into them but did not eliminate it completely. I think this will work beautifully for not only pores, but also wrinkles, for those that don’t have overly dry skin like myself. I will be adding this to my pro kit and stick with hydrating primers.
The Estée Edit by Estée Lauder line is available exclusively at Sephora.
