Product Review:Estee lauder Blush all day Natural Cheek Color Sepia

Monday, February 28, 2011
Most of us would probably recognize an Estee Lauder Packaging when we see one..Their classic deep blue packaging with the gold EL logo has been its signature ever since i first laid my eyes on my moms lipstick,my aunts skin care products and such.And here i am presenting you guys the classic EL packaging from the Blush all day Cheek Blush line.

Photobucket
Smooth, velvety formula delivers warm, natural-looking colour that stays true all day. Blends effortlessly. Sleek compact includes a professional contoured brush for mistake-proof application. Colour builds easily from soft to striking, so you're always in control. Non-acnegenic. Fragrance-free. Dermatologist-tested

Estee lauder Blush all day Natural Cheek Color in Sepia..Pretty Deep shade of Peach.its almost as dark as my bronzer only this has more orange-y tone on it than brown.

Photobucket
On my Cheeks..lightly swept it twice,i love how natural it looks on my Nc25 skin.Average Lasting power without any primer,but great pigmentation.

Photobucket
Closer look.As i have mentioned on my previous post,ive noticed how this kind of shade compliments my Skin tone.But most blush that i have is pink-ish,i wonder why,maybe im attracted at how cute they look on the pan.

  Photobucket
I think ill start looking for some nice hues of Peachy/Apricot blushes...i wore this look on a job interview by the way.hehe.

Verdict:

Packaging:3/5
Price:-/5
Lasting Power:3/5
OVERALL RATING:3/5

I love them red...I love them Feisty,i love them bright,those that would give off some statement,just by pouting them.LOL!..i remember one of my lecturer told me,that if i want to lure or flirt a guy i should send him a message by
  • First:Turn your head towards that person,do some hair motion as well then do the lady like hair behind the ears move.
  • Second:Focusing the eyes..its like making him know that you're looking right at him or through him
  • Third:Lips..Pout it and do a flirty one side lip Bite...How to pout??imagine blowing through a small straw..i mean it would look weird if you would blow through a Large Zagu like Straw...Let them Janitor Fish carry those kind of look okay.

Estee Lauder Time Zone Night

Saturday, February 26, 2011
Moisturizers? i cant get enough of them..Serums,Oils, and stuff that will make my skin revitalized and Plumped up with healthy glow,of course it have to be non comodogenic and oil-free,thats the kind of stuff that you will find on my Skin care Stash...I admit that im hooked into anything that will promise a healthy,MOISTURIZED,well-rested skin..but of course i do my own research in terms of their benefits,ingredients,raves,and whereabouts first before purchasing or trying the product myself..Just to make sure my skin is safe,because honestly trying something new is already a risk for ones skin..since most of us can never tell how will our skin react.

Photobucket
One night is what it takes to start looking 10 years younger.Inspired by the science of cellular regeneration, Estée Lauder Research takes you to a younger time zone overnight.In fact, every single woman tested woke up to smoother, more hydrated, comfortable skin.And in just 1 week, women thought their skin looked younger.


Photobucket
YOUR TIME IS NOW
This age-defying moisturizer works overnight to help dramatically reduce the look of lines and wrinkles.Our exclusive Sirtuin EX1 Technology helps reverse the appearance of aging for a years-younger look-more lineless,radiant and rested.Helps support skin's nightly restorative actions including natural collagen production with an amino acid complex.
And while you sleep, the soothing scent calms and relaxes.
Use it with Time Zone day creme and look 10 years younger in just 4 weeks.

Photobucket
The product isnt too thick unlike any other night creams,the thing that i love with this one is the smell...i think Estee lauder skin care products have a distinctive scent.a soft hint of floral-ish nature fragrance.

i dont have to apply too much product on,since the cream is not that thick,i can easily spread it on my face.
I tested this product for 3 weeks and i did saw some improvement in terms of moisturization, and skin softness,did not see any improvement on my fine lines though(yes i do have a few 20's expression lines already..=(..).But thats really not my concern..since i havent used it that long for me to see its full effect.I just want to have a healthy glowing plumped up well-rested skin.
Of course before i used this i have to exclude my other skin care products just to see how well this works on its own...Let me list down the items i used along side Estee's Time Zone:
  • Garnier Pen Spot Treatment(the Blueish one)
  • Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Age-Correcting Eye Cream
 
Every night same time as i apply my creams and serums i always massage my face..also i make sure that my skin had absorbed the product first before i rest my head onto my pillow.
If i would recommend this to someone,it will have to be those who have very dry maturing skin,which looks tired and stressed out..

Right after i woke up..my skin is at its best condition..because its all plumped up with moisture from the night before.Which Mr.R noticed as well.I dont know but upon waking up,i thought my skin would feel and look oily,but that wasnt the case at all..it have this healthy glow non oily matte-ish skin.I guess my skin doesn't produce much oily when im asleep.=D


Things that i Like:
  • Non Greasy
  • Didnt Broke me out
  • Plumped up my Skin with Moisture the next morning
  • Leaves my skin Soft and Smooth
  • Doesnt Feel Heavy on my Skin
  • Locally Available.
  • Nice Fresh Floral scent
Things that i did not like:
  • Packaging.(im not a fan of Pots or Tubs as well as repeated finger dipping.)
  • Some might Find it Pricey.
Verdict:
Of all the products that EL offers,their skin cares is always on my top lists,although i quite agree that some of them are a bit pricey,still the EL's products that i have tried delivers great results,and im not lifting my own chair guys,at first i actually did not see any improvement until..Mr R. and my cousins noticed how my skin changes from good to better.


LBB's Tip:Always do some research first before purchasing any skin care products,try to find a review who has similar skin condition as you are,but dont rely on how the product works on her/him just yet,make what you've found a basis,since each product works differently on some individuals.


im Glad that Estee Lauder gave my skin the opportunity to try the Time Zone Night.Thank you.

Estee Lauder Scents-Pleasures,Sensous,Beautiful

Monday, February 21, 2011
Perfumes have been a part of my daily must use ever since my mom bought me a small plastic bottle of Johnsons and Johnsons baby cologne..
Recently my perfume selection leans more on the masculine scent than those sweet soft feminine one.Not that i dont have women perfumes its just that sometimes they smell too sweet and too floral for my taste..there are only a few lady perfumes in my stash that i find just right,and one of them is Estee Lauders Pleasures.

Did You Know?
Eau de Toilette is a traditional fragrance type. It contains a lighter concentration of scent than the Eau de Parfum, for a sheer, yet lasting
scent

I have their travel size or minis which was given to me by mama lorie..Out of these three Estee perfumes i prefer the scent of Pleasures


here's a small info on from estee lauders Site*
Pleasures
One of life's simple pleasures.Fresh as flowers after a rain, this sheer, shimmering floral is a spirited blend of Lilies, Peonies and Jasmine, all tingling with the rare essence of exotic Baie Rose.Never sweet, ever fresh, it delights your senses with pleasure after pleasure.

Fragrance Type: Sheer Floral


LBB:this is my favorite among the three.its somewhat similar to bvlgari.thats just how i smell it..its fresh,floral-y scent is just my right touch of feminine aroma.


SENSOUS
A modern new definition of sensuality. Confident and elegant.A rich core of Molten Woods and Amber, surrounded by atmospheric florals, warmed by a hint of Pepper and a touch of Honey.
Fragrance Type: Woody Amber
Key Notes
This fragrance redefines the traditional fragrance structure of Top, Middle and 
Base notes. Instead, a Warm core is surrounded by Feminine, Luminous notes.


LBB:smells like my mom and grandmas perfume..its not that grandma perfumes are bad,they just have this distinctive scent..if you know what i mean..

BEAUTIFUL
The fragrance of a thousand flowers...lighter, more delicate than ever.
A tender bouquet of Lilies and Roses, Marigold and Orange Blossoms. All warmed with a rich, woody base and brightened with a touch of citrus.

Romantic, tender, memorable.

Fragrance Type:Floral


LBB:same with sensous.but compared to sensous this emits a much stronger scent.


the red one is where i place the bottle that i want to tote with me..it comes with a green case that looks very much like those mirrored lipstick casing.
