Celebrate Fall with the New & Exciting Chocolate Decadence Line from Estée Lauder!9:23 am
The New Estée Lauder Chocolate Decadence Collection is all about warm chocolate hues, caramel golds and sugared berry tones, which after a summer of peach and pink, is a welcome change.
Creme Caramel Shimmer Powder gives you a luscious milk and white chocolate shimmer that you can use all over your face, shoulders and decolletage. It works on even fair skin tones like me and you can control the amount you use with a brush. You can use the colours on their own or blended together for a custom look that works best on your skin. I like that it is high shimmer so you can use a little as a soft highlight, or really play up your features for a more dramatic look! It comes in a chocolate brown case with a golden cartouche. Delicious!
For the eyes, I'm all about the new rich truffle hues for the eyes - Berry Truffle and Caramel Truffle. They are only available for a LIMITED TIME, so get them now before it's too late!
Like petite boxes of chocolates, these rich eyeshadow quads offer plum and caramel palettes to give your eyes a warm glow. Each compact includes dark and light colours and a chocolate swathed in gold ribbons for the ultimate in luxurious shadow! These too come in a chocolate compact but in addition have a large mirror (thank you for not giving us those teeny, tiny little ones like the drugstore brands continue to make!) and have 2 dual ended applicators so that you can work your eyes like a pro, whether you're at a club or at your front hall mirror.
One of the best mascaras I've ever used is the New Estée Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara!
I know, quite a mouthful, right? But trust me, this stuff is amazing!
I have no idea if this story is true or not, but I read once that Sharon Stone doesn't like to wear mascara because of the raccoon eyes that she'd get in trying to remove it. I can't agree more, Sharon, and often if I get a mascara that works but is difficult to get off, even with makeup remover, it ends up sitting in my makeup drawer, unused and unloved.
But the New Estée Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara not only goes on beautifully, giving me an array of lashes that even an ostrich would be jealous off, it comes off so easily, that the first time I almost wept with joy at how easy it was. I couldn't quite believe it!
And the black is ultra black, making my green eyes pop, whether I'm wearing shadow or liner or not.
That's when you know you've found a keeper - when you can wear it on it's own and you look as good as when you're wearing eye makeup!
And don't worry, I haven't forgotten the lips! After all, fall is when we get to play these puppies up. When we really get to showcase our sensuous lips with rich, dark hues and glossy berry sheens. Mmm!
Pure Colour Lipstick comes in new LIMITED EDITION shades. I got Pure Red for the ultimate pucker, but there a bunch to choose from - in fact, you may want to get one of each since they are only here for a limited time...
And Estée Lauder's Pure Colour Swirl Gloss is the ultimate party accessory! It comes in Berry Swirl and Caramel Swirl and features 3 swirled colours per gloss. When applied however, they seemlessly blend together, giving you a sweet, sheer shade that is completely decadent and yet, didn't add one single calorie! The chocolate raspberry scent just adds to the whole chocolate theme beautifully, though as delicious as it smells (and it smells divine), don't eat it!
And now let's get to your skin. Estée Lauder's Perfectionist (CP+) Wrinkle Lifting Serum Corrector for Lines/Wrinkles/Age Spots really does do it all!
Just look at the results:
• exclusive Wrinkle Lift Restructuring Peptides begin to amplify collagen production in just 2 hours*.
• the length, depth and number of lines and wrinkles look reduced up to 36%.
• wrinkles are filled in and visibly immobilized with a flexible elastomer.
• skin looks brighter, fresher, more lineless.
IN 1 MONTH OF CONTINUED USE:
• see a 61% reduction in the look of serious lines and wrinkles.
• the visible, wrinkle exaggerating effects of the day are eliminated.
And after having tried it myself, I concur - this stuff made me look like I finally got 8 hours sleep a night and didn't spend my life squinting, hunched over a keyboard. I looked younger and more rejeuvenated. My skin looked lighter and my face had a glow that didn't come from any shimmery highlighters.
What's interesting is that this is not a moistuizer, so you put it on after your cleansed your face, but before you put on your regular moisturizer. Within just a few days of use, I noticed my wrinkles kind of plumped out, not as deep as they used to be, giving me a more youthful appearance. I couldn't pretend to be 16, but I could look in my late twenties as opposed to my late thirties. Not too bad, wouldn't you say? I bet your wrinkle cream doesn't give you a Gossip Girl dewiness like this does!
And now on to Sensuous, Estée Lauder's Fragrance "Designed to Capture the Most Feminine Side of a Woman."
This warm, inviting and woody amber fragrance is so enveloping that I've had people stop me at a restaurant or on the subway to ask what I'm wearing!
It is described by the company as "a rich core of Molten Woods and Amber, surrounded by atmospheric florals, warmed by a hint of Pepper and a touch of Honey."
Warm and woodsy for sure, but totally modern with a floral finish, I'd say. It is one of the most captivating fragrances I've ever worn and is now one of my "must-have" scents that lines my shelf.
Estée Lauder is one of those lines that you can count on for making you look good without being too much or too out there. The makeup is extraordinary, the skin care revolutionary and the frangrances absolutely exceptional. I am greeting Fall this year with a beautiful face, less wrinkles, wrapped in the most sensual scent.
What about you?
