 HAPPY WEEKENDS BEAUTIES, 

For all of the Aussies out there, how amazing was the weather for both Saturday and Sunday? Let's all take a moment to appreciate the fact that Spring is just a few days away... 

Let's begin! 

To celebrate the last week of Winter, I've rounded some of the newest additions by Estée Lauder that recently launched to Australia, including their Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick. If you guys didn't know who the brand ambassador for Estée Lauder is, that would be Kendall Jenner - famously known as being one of the half sisters of the Kardashians. Nevertheless, you're going to be super excited about Estée Lauder's newly releases which features their new Double Wear Cushion stick, Set + Refresh Makeup Mist to their Pure Color Envy Hi-lustre Light Sculpting lipstick and Vinyl LipColor which leaves a super moisturising feel and amazing colour for the lips. 

In this special final winter post, I've decided to feature the Estée Lauder range as I recently attended a wedding and to help me create my final look, I've incorporated the new products by the Estée Lauder range for which I am so excited to share with you all on my blog.

AVAILABILITY: 
  • All of the mentioned new products by Estée Lauder are now available at Estée Lauder counters nationwide and via www.esteelauder.com.au 

I hope you all enjoy the read and if you have any questions, I am always happy to have a chat xoxo

SCULPT, HYDRATE, LUMINIZE, DEFINE. 


PURE COLOR ENVY VINYL LIPCOLOR - RRP $52 

Featuring a lip colour concept similar to a lip stain, this baby is full of such vibrant colour and hydration. I tried out the shade in Shameless, (which is close their Pinks and Berries colour range). It definitely reminds me of a pink and berry shade combined which looks so beautiful on the lips. If you keep on reading, I have included a swatch of this shade in the 'Tried and tested, swatches' section of this post. This lip colour is seriously the best pick-me-up to have if you're in a rush for a girl's night out. It remarkably stands out from the crowd if you're wanting to make a sweet statement for your lips. 

The New Pure Color Envy Vinyl LipColor is a bold and bright lip stain which contains a reflective, high vinyl shine finish for your lips. The quality of the the product is on point with my expectations and I am just so impressed with its formula and overall results. What makes the formula so unique is that it contains lip moisturising lip ingredients and a long lasting colour impact that sculpts, define and shape the look of the lips. I really like how moisturising it leaves the lips feeling because that's so important to consider for a lip product whenever you're heading out. (You don't want to get dry or flaky lips from using the wrong lip products - so essentially I couldn't find anything wrong with using the New Pure Color Envy Vinyl LipColor). In terms of the finish of the lip colour, it's definitely high-shine, wet finish that lasts for about 8 hours of wear which is ideal if you're going to be out for the whole day or night. My lips even looked more plumped than usual which is great because who doesn't want fuller looking lips these days? 

UNIQUE INGREDIENTS + TECHNOLOGY INCLUDES: 
  • Volume Boosting Complex - There's about nine lip enhancing volume boosters and hydrators (including a trio of oils that seriously looks to nourish the lips).  Other key ingredients include: jojoba, sunflower, avocado and Hyaluronic Acid - so that you really get a fresh, instant and lasting moisture for the overall lips. 
  • Advanced True Vision - This means that it has a complex of colour pigments and pearls which is what essentially helps to give the lips a glistening shine (wet effect look) to them. 

WHERE TO PURCHASE: 

Overall, if you're after a vibrant, long-wearing with a wet finish type of lip colour, then definitely try out the Pure Color Envy Vinyl colour by Estée Lauder. It helps to transform your lips with a vibrant colour with a high shine to it which is perfect if you want to rock this for the whole day. 

PURE COLOR ENVY HI-LUSTRE LIGHT SCULPTING LIPSTICK - RRP $52 

As previously mentioned, as Estée Lauder have introduced a new lip collection, they have also included the Pure Color Envy Hi-lustre Light Sculpting lipstick. I tried it out in shade Hot Chills which sounds like a rocking name to have. Described as having a high-performance lipstick formula and with added technologies, I was so curious to see how this shade would feel and look on my lips. What I can say is that this lipstick (hands down) offers an intense level of moisture for the lips and also has a high-intensity colour to it as well. There's no need to layer on the lipstick to achieve the overall colour because the pigmentation is seriously on point with just having one layer of the lipstick on. 

The lipstick also features a luminous low-lit finish for the lips that allows for the colour to reflect on the lips beautifully. The lipstick also features a new technology called Optical Pearl Blend which makes the lips appear fuller and with a luminous finish to them. The shade in Hot Chills is a blood-orange shade that looks subtle, light and gorgeous on the lips. It's not too dramatic looking which is good to know and it really suits Spring for which I will definitely be rocking on the lips for the season. In terms of hydration, the lipstick makes the lips feel incredibly moisturised so there's no need to prep the lips with a lip balm beforehand (just ensure that you've exfoliated your lips nicely with a good sugar scrub).

PERFECT. SET. REFRESH. 


SET + REFRESH PERFECTING MAKEUP MIST - RRP $50 

Trying out a new setting make-up mist is always exciting. Featuring the perfect on-the-go beauty holy grail, say hello to Estée Lauder's Set + Refresh Perfecting makeup mist which has been infused with electrolytes and caffeine which really helps to bring your skin to an instant boost of radiance, along with the moisture needed. This mist helps to keep your make-up look fresh and super luminous. I am incredibly addicted to this spray because of how it leaves my overall face looking. It's ideal for those in warm and humid conditions because this spray will help your make-up to stay fresh for longer. 

In terms of using the mist, I'd simply spray this onto my face before and after make-up that way it helps to set it into the skin, making it feel fresher and more supple. And with regard to the smell of the mist, it definitely has a fruity kick to it which smells delightful! Featuring uplifting scents of green mandarin, grapefruit and orange with floral notes of freesia and cyclamen petals - I just want to spritz this onto my face every hour! (It also helps to relax the face at the same time).

HOW TO USE THE MIST: 
  • Simply hold the mist about 10-15cm away from the face to spray evenly. 
  • Can be used under or over the foundation to prep the skin. 
  • Used to refresh make-up. 

Overall, the makeup mist is an ideal product if you're wanting that instant freshness and moisture for your face. I love how effective it works to set your make-up which means that your make-up will last longer for the day. My skin complexion is instantly boosted and has that radiant, healthy look that I am ideally looking for. 

WHERE TO PURCHASE: 
  • Available at Estée Lauder counters nationwide at Myer, David Jones, Sephora and select pharmacies.

THE FLAWLESS NUDE 


NEW DOUBLE WEAR NUDE CUSHION STICK RADIANT MAKEUP - RRP $58

Bet you all were excited for this product! Estée Lauder recently launched their new Double Wear, Nude Cushion stick radiant makeup. Designed for being an on-the-go product, the cushion is is truly a unique stick to have in your beauty collection. It's a make-up and pro-tool - all in the one product. Did I also mention that it's such an innovative product as it has a built-in cushion that dispenses the long-wearing and hydrating foundation. The cushion tool allows for a smooth and radiant glow which is the perfect blending product to have when you're on the go. The foundation formula is very lightweight and doesn't weigh the skin down at all. It's super comfortable when worn for the whole day and comes in a liquid formula. 

As for the Nude cushion stick, you're probably wondering about the hygiene of it all. Well, you'll be pleased to know that the make-up applicator can be easily separated for simple, hygienic cleaning. For example, the cushion sponge can easily be removed for cleaning. Simply twist the gold-tone ring at the top to remove the tip/sponge entirely. Next, wash the sponge with a mild soap and warm water. Remember to pat dry to remove any excess water. Next, make sure that cushion sponge dries completely before you attach it back.

Furthermore, the stick design is made so that you can keep tabs on how much makeup exactly you have remaining, so once you see the window of foundation on a low level, you will know that it's time to replace. 

I tried the Double Wear Nude Cushion stick make-up for the whole day and it lasted well without any smudges or so. It really left my skin looking very flawless and smooth for longer than 8 hours which I am impressed with. I tend to lean towards foundations that feel very lightweight on the skin and comfortable which is why I would definitely consider re-purchasing this product once it runs out for me. 

Overall, I love how unique the stick radiant cushion foundation is. It's the first time I've seen foundation in a cushion stick form too. The fact that it looks to provide my face with an even and natural glow, I'm currently loving this item at the moment. You can build the foundation to the level as desired and by using the amazing beauty blender provided, you can look to achieve a full face application or simply coverage and touch-ups. 


WHERE TO PURCHASE: 
  • Available at Estée Lauder counters nationwide at Myer, David Jones, Sephora and select pharmacies.
