Are you ready for Estée Lauder‘s Spring/Summer collection 2016? I’ve tried out lots of their new products so that I can tell you first hand what goodies Estée Lauder has in store for us this year and how they are! I have already written a post about their new fragrance Modern Muse Eau de Rouge which you can find here. Since there are quite a few products I’ll get right into it.
As you probably know Kendall Jenner is Estée Lauder’s brand ambassador and she made this awesome video presenting Lauder’s new Sumptuous Knockout Mascara. Enjoy!
Estée Lauder’s new Sumptuous Knockout Mascara is absolutely amazing! When I first read that it was supposed to separate the lashes without getting them all clumped up I thought that it would be just another disappointment as many other mascaras are. I was proven wrong quickly though! The mascara really gives you ultra long, separated and thick lashes in an instant.
With the mascara’s sleek and elegant design it also looks gorgeous. The brush is fine in comparison to others which makes it easy to apply especially on the lower lashes without getting mascara all over the place.
Also in the makeup department Estée Lauder brought out a waterproof liquid matt concealer called Double Wear Waterproof All Day Extreme Wear Concealer which should last for up to 24 hours. This concealer which you can get in the shades light, light medium and medium is great to cover up those annoying dark under-eye circles and irregularities in your skin tone. Apart from being waterproof and resistent against sweat it also keeps in the moisture so that your skin doesn’t dry out.
As you can see in the swatch above the concealer gives natural and impeccable coverage with a soft and matte finish.
A while ago I wrote a post about Estée Lauder’s New Dimension line which focuses on giving the skin a younger look by adding volume and structure. The New Dimension line now also has a new product called Plum + Fill Expert Lip Treatment which helps define the lips. The lip treatment contains two phases which both prepare the lip before applying your favourite lipstick. Besides plumping and hydrating the lips the treatment also makes the lipstick last substantially longer.
In the first phase you use the liquid lip filler from the lower pale blue part of the stick. You fill the lips with the filler and lightly pat it on with your fingertips. Besides filling in the lines and wrinkles it also strengthens your natural tissue in the long run.
The second phase consists of the lip balm from the top half of the stick. This balm gives your lips extra volume but also nourishes and hydrates them.
Personally I am very impressed by the Plump + Fill Expert Lip Treatment. It really gets rid of those little lines and fills the lips nicely. It’s also a great nourishing base coat for under your lipstick, especially the drying matte ones.
Besides the makeup Estée Lauder also has two new face masks. The first one is the NightWear Plus 3-Minute Detox Mask. What’s great about this product is that unlike other face masks it only takes three minutes to sink in. The liquid clay mask pulls out any sebum and detoxes the skin deeply leaving the pores smaller and less visible. It gives the skin a fresh and naturally matte finish. You should apply a thin layer of the mask twice a week in the evening. After three minutes gently massage it with water and wash it off throughly. Afterwards you can use one of Estée Lauder’s moisturisers which I’ll talk about later. As I mentioned above I love how quickly this mask works and that you only need a little bit instead of half a tube as I sometimes have the feeling with other face masks.
The second face mask is the Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask. This revolutionary new product is something I have never seen before mainly because it looks so cool with its spacey look. 🙂 It works with a dual-matrix technology. This means that there is an inner matrix which is the part you lay directly onto your face and the outer matrix which is the foil on the outside. The inner matrix is packed full of highly concentrated ingredients that sink into your skin quickly and deeply. The ingredients help correct and clean the skin from damages obtained by air pollution. The outer matrix with its PowerFoil technology makes sure that the formula can advance into the skin 25 times faster. The mask should be applied for ten minutes once a week.
After using a face mask it’s always vital to apply a good moisturiser. Estée Lauder has brought out to new Revitalising Supreme products called Global Anti-Aging Creme Oil-Free and Global Anti-Aging Body Creme.
Both cremes work with lots of different plants and extracts such as brown algae, black bamboo, narcissus tazetta, vitamin E, caffeine, sunflower and barley. All these high quality ingredients hydrate the skin for 24 hours and give the skin a smoother, more firm and even complexion. Both cremes feel very luxurious and feather light when applied and should be used each morning and evening on dry or slightly moist skin.
The last product is the Re-Nutriv Ultimate Diamond Transformative Energy Eye Creme. This luxurious eye creme is packed with exquisite ingredients like extracts of black truffle, sea algae, magnolia extract and Japanese apricot extract. The creme recreates the natural vitality of the skin around the eyes and makes you look dramatically younger by lifting, tightening and forming the eye area. After prolonged use the eye rings and swellings will have been subdued as well. You should apply five little drops of the sparkling creme around each eye and then gently massage it in stating from the inner corner of your eye and working your way all around the eye.
Wow, that’s been a lot of new products for Spring/Summer 2016 and there are even more on Estée Lauder’s website. I think I honestly couldn’t pick a favourite but the top two on my list would definitely have to be the Sumptuous Knockout Mascara and the New Dimension Plum + Fill Expert Lip Treatment!
