It’s always exciting to me when I brand I love comes out with a massive new collection, and that’s exactly what Estee Lauder did recently with the new The Estee Edit by Estee Lauder range. This collection has a much younger look to it than the traditional Estee Lauder, but it’s still got the same great quality inside.
The initial launch of the Estee Edit range includes a mix of permanent and limited edition products. There’s skincare and makeup, and really a huge variety to try from. I tested out three of the products, the Pink Peony Overnight Water Pack, Mattified Lipstick in You’re Welcome and the Barest Blush in First Lover so I have my thoughts on all those to share with you today!
Starting off with the skincare, I tried out The Estee Edit Pink Peony Overnight Water Pack. This is an overnight mask with a light, with a water-gel consistency that has a light but lovely fragrance. The ingredient list includes goji berry, blueberry, cranberry and pomegranate as well as hyaluronic acid to help hydrate the skin. It’s super lightweight and I did not find it very noticeable at all once applied, just a very slight stickiness.
After sleeping with The Estee Edit Pink Peony Overnight Water Pack on my skin looks more hydrated, refreshed, and just a bit brighter in the morning. This mask is perfect if you don’t have super dry skin but need a little something to treat it. It’s also a great pick for summer weather, I can imagine how refreshing this would be left in the fridge!
The Estee Edit Mattified Lipsticks come in silver packaging with a spray painted blue detail that feels both chic and a bit edgy. There are available in 12 bold, pigmented shades available and I have The Estee Edit Mattified Lipsticks, a true red. You’re Welcome has a lovely vanilla fragrance and just glides onto the lips with opaque, even coverage.
The Estee Edit Mattified Lipstick in You’re Welcome has a satin matte, it’s a comfortable matte with a little bit of shine. It’s long wearing but definitely still needs to be touched up after eating–and personally I would remove it first, I don’t want red lipstick all over my lunch. While You’re Welcome isn’t the most unique shade in the collection–there’s actually a teal!–it’s a gorgeous red with a flawless formula so if you need a new one in your collection I highly recommend checking out this shade.
I was definitely most excited about the final product I tested out, The Estee Edit Barest Blush in First Lover. The blush range includes 4 different shades, but First Lover is definitely the one I had my eye on. This is a warm rosy brown matte blush. The gold portion is just an overspray and is gone in 1-2 uses. The formula is silky, pigmented yet blendable that is buildable and looks natural and really lovely applied.
Honestly, The Estee Edit Barest Blush in First Lover is pure love on the skin. However, I do have to address the packaging of this product. First off, although it looks nice in photos, it’s a lightweight plastic that doesn’t feel anywhere near as luxurious as the lipstick. Inside the blush is incredibly wobbly, and from reading Temptalia’s reviews I know that all four shades she purchased had the same issue. I don’t want the pan wobbling around when I swirl my brush in it, so I’m disappointed Estee Lauder didn’t put such a gorgeous product in a slightly better package.
In the above look I’m wearing the The Estee Edit Mattified Lipstick in You’re Welcome and Barest Blush in First Lover. I’m sorry that the lighting isn’t better–natural light struggles, but I think you can see what a natural matte the blush is and how even and flawless the lipstick is applied. When I included this photo in my Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Quad in Rust review, I was asked what I was wearing. I
Overall, my first experiences with the new The Estee Edit range were very positive (packaging complaint aside). I LOVE the formula of the both the blush and lipstick and I had a great first experience with the skincare. Estee Lauder is generally a very reliable brand to me with great quality makeup and this range is an awesome extension of that with a more youthful look. Next on my wishlist? Definitely The Barest Lip Colors, you know I love my sheer nude lipsticks!
