Estee Lauder "Stay Flawless All Day" Kit


 Hello Everyone!
So I have been doing a lot of research lately and keep stumbling upon Estee Lauder. I think she is such a great woman and an incredibly brilliant business woman. For those of you who don't know, Estee Lauder owns or started many brands you may have heard of. Some of those brands include MAC, Clinique, Smashbox, Tom Ford, Bobbi Brown and many more. Check out some info of the background here!

Anyways.... I have heard a ton about the "Double Wear" foundation, concealer, lipsticks etc. and wanted to try it out for myself! I went to an Estee Lauder counter today and was incredibly impressed with the lady that helped me. She talked to me for almost an hour and really seemed invested in the company and actually wanted to help me!! You know how some counters can be sooooo pushy.. Well she was wonderful.

I was planning on purchasing the foundation and concealer when I walked in. However Leah ( the makeup artist at the counter) introduced me to this kit.  The foundation by itself is $37.00 and the concealer is $23.00 but this kit was $42.50 and it included a brush, primer and sample night cream. WHATTTTT


 Sorry this picture is so blurry but I was really excited about writing this post and I wanted to get it up ASAP. So here is the deal... The foundation is full sized, the concealer is half sized, the primer is deluxe sample sized, and the brush is just perfect sized. ( I do not know if this is the normal size for the brush but I hope so)



Here I have them all lined up so you can kind of see the sizes in comparison. I decided to go with the Double Wear Light foundation because it has a bit more coverage than a tinted moisturizer which was great. I needed a lighter foundation for the summer. But if I like it I will get the regular one (medium to buildable coverage) for winter time and for my kit..

I can not tell you enough how excited I am to try these products.
I will do another blog post to let you all know what I think of the products!! Have you tried any of these products or anything else from this brand??? Let me know your opinion/ recommendations for colors, products etc.







I just wanted to show you a swatch/ it blended into my skin.... I have no idea why my hand looks green.... but that is beside the point. It looks like skin when blended in is my first impression. Super impressed





Okay well comment below and let me know if you have used anything from Estee Lauder.

I hope this was helpful!!
