Two years ago, I wouldn’t have imagined I would be looking into Estee Lauder makeup. Maybe because I associated the brand with my borderline-snooty aunties who are hardcore loyalists that they’d write fanfiction about Estee if they could. In short, I felt that it was too “Tita” for me. Ha ha! Everything changed during my first foray into the brand which was through their Double Wear Foundation. My feeling then was that of a high school student who found out her crush had a crush on her too. That foundation was just perfect for my acne-ravaged skin then as it had full-on coverage and lasted through Manila heat and humidity without sliding off at all. I slowly eased my way into the brand and fell in love with their other products – such as their quints, lipsticks and their good-Lord-save-me-from-this-addiction-called-Advanced Night Repair Serum.
Double Wear Pencil. The pencil glides on like gel but doesn’t crumble or melt from being overly creamy. It still stays intact (as pictured above) after being used twice or thrice. And I’m impressed that the liner really stays on the waterlines and lashlines without smudging or fading for a good 8 hours or so. Definitely one of the better eyeliner pencils I’ve tried thus far!
Double Wear Extreme Mascara. The mascara is so-so. I like that it really lengthens and slightly volumizes without clumping. The brush head/wand is quite small in size so it isn’t a mess to apply especially if you have thin, sparse lashes (like I do) – but I find that it smudges after 4 hours. I prefer their Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying mascara which I’ve emptied out already. I also like using their Little Black Primer mascara in conjunction (with EL and other mascaras).
Pure Color Envy Lipstick in Impulsive. Let it be known that I’m in a dark/vampy/red lipstick stage but this pinky nude hooked me right back to the pink/nude spectrum. The formula – even the shade -reminds me so much of some of Tom Ford’s Spanish Pink which was my ultimate pinky nude lipstick for a while back then. Just have to share that ever since I received this, I’ve been wearing it daily! I’d swatch some lipsticks, try to go bold and bright but end up wiping them off midday and changing to this. Obsessed is an understatement.
Advanced Night Repair Serum. So I’ve talked about this “Vampire’s Brew” serum in detail before (here) so no need to profess my love for it again. Just have to gush that it’s been a constant pick-me-upper when I feel my skin is drying out from trying other skincare products. I’m not big on moisturizers as I’m too much of a lazyass to wait for serum to dry and layer it on after – so a serum that hydrates and relieves my skin of dullness is a must. This ANR serum does all those – I never fail to wake up with better-looking and feeling skin in the morning.
Double Wear Foundation. Since my acne surrendered in battle, I’ve been okay with less coverage which means I rarely bust out this beloved bottle these days. I only reserve it for special occasions when I need to look fully made up. In its place, I’ve been reaching for the Perfectionist Youth Infusing Makeup foundation instead. I’ve recently discovered that the ELDW is perfect to use as an undereye concealer. But only in thin layers as it can get cakey if piled on. In this set, I didn’t use any other concealer – just the ELDW. I love it.
