Spring is here which means Summer is coming. I have seen people start to re-do their makeup bags to suit the warmer weather and so I decided to start looking for new products for S/S.
I welcome you to take a look at my latest beauty haul from Estée Lauder. This is a good one, trust me!
Seeing as I am normally tired when I first wake up to go to work, I don't wear a full face of makeup anymore - especially with the heat we have been experiencing thus far - and so I thought a tinted moisturiser might suit me best. Especially as my cystic acne prone skin has been massively improving due to a diet change I have stuck too (It basically includes NO fizzy drinks and LOTS of water with occasional juices and smoothies). Normally I would go for full foundation and high coverage, but in the morning I can't be bothered and don't have time for moisturiser, primer, foundation, concealer, powder in that order.
I constantly hear good things about Estée Lauder's Double Wear foundation and its amazing coverage so I started to look at their range on various stores online. I ended up purchasing from Estée Lauder direct because all I did was purchase 2 items, and gained 10 items free.
Yes. 10 items. Free. Best deal ever.
Because I didn't want a full foundation and for my face to feel heavy in the heat I decided to try their Double Wear All-Day Glow BB cream. I am no beauty expert and so BB, and CC, and any letter creams don't actually make a lot of sense to me but I am imaging it to be a lot lighter on the face than a full foundation but not quite as light as a moisturiser. I also purchased their Double Wear eyeliner in Pearl to highlight my eyes and eyebrows. Good thing is that this pencil comes with a built in smudger on the opposite end.
Pictured above are some of the items I actually received for free. I say some, because I gave 2 smaller samples to my Mother because I am such a loving daughter. What a haul!Estée Lauder will give you two free samples when you purchase anyway which for me was the Modern Muse Body Lotion, and a Modern Muse perfume sample. Because I spent more than £35 I also obtained the brown bag with the Perfectly Clean cleanser, Advanced Night Repair and Advanced Time Zone. I also received a smaller Perfectly Clean cleanser. No idea how I managed to also come away with Sumptuous mascara, Sumptuous Infinite mascara and the lip gloss palette. Luck maybe?
Sometimes it really pays off to order direct, as you can see here.
Do you use Estée Lauder and their Double Wear range? Have you used Double Wear? Is there anything similar you can recommend to me? Also, what a great deal eh?!
