I had a little fun playing with these products! Did nothing with the lighting in these photos- it was all the makeup!
I have been trying to branch out more by trying new kinds of makeup and these goodies from Estée Lauder sure hit the spot! I was so excited when I got an email that these products were on their way for me to try. I received four awesome products for my review: Beam Team Hydrate + Glow, The Barest Lip Color, Pore Vanishing Stick, and the Flash Illuminator. All of these products and more from the collection can be found at Sephora!
BEAM TEAM HYDRATE + GLOW: Oh, how I love this shimmery boost of glow! It gave me a little extra boost of bronze with out drying me out or making my skin feel oily! The little bit of shimmer was perfect and not too overpowering. It was easy to apply and felt great on; the perfect finishing touch for that summer glow :)
THE BAREST LIP COLOR: You guys know I love a good lipstick, who doesn't!? I was a little wary of the color I received since it was so dark and I am so fair toned. However I do have pretty good tan right now so I was excited to try it out. The color name is Nude Scene 06, the darkest of the collection. It went on so smooth and easy for a dark lip color, I was quite impressed. This color would be perfect for an elegant event, very chic! Not to mention how white it made my teeth look ;) This lipstick has muru muru butter and real flower petal waxes in it for a sheer coverage or for a full-on nude scene!
PORE VANISHING STICK: I was most excited about this one and very please by the results! It did exactly what its called for, my pores vanished! I used it on my nose and chin, before any other makeup, where I have larger pores and it blurred the look of them. It also helps to minimize shine and oil which is great for these humid summer days.
FLASH ILLUMINATOR: I was skeptical and excited about this one as well since I do have oily and sensitive skin. I was given the Spot Light 01 for this so it could be used by all skin tones. It highlights the areas you want more prominent such as temples and cheek bones. It definitely showed in pictures and gave me that extra glow of a fresh face and great nights sleep, even if I don't get one! It felt light on and was super easy to apply.
