Summer is not over but it’s always fun to take a glimpse of what’s to come in beauty for Fall. I tend to be bolder with my makeup in Fall while starting my cold weather hydration routine and looking at Estee Lauder’s Fall Preview I see a lot of items that will do just that!
The event was held at the Thompson Hotel in Downtown Toronto. They had transformed one of penthouse suites into a beautiful backdrop for all the gorgeous items. As I entered the living room bottles of the Aerin Fragrances welcomed me in. Aerin will have two new fragrances for the fall, Tuberose Le Jour and Tuberose Le Soir a day and night scent. I love that they compliment each other so that you can wear them layered to go from day to night. Guests were treated to a delectable array of treats in the kitchen. I had a few bites before I headed to the dining area to check out the skincare items!
I love Estee Lauder skincare and at the event I got acquainted with their Re-Nutriv line. I fell in love with the Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth which is infused with exclusive Floralixir™ Dew derived from the Himalayan Gentian and Brazilian Everlasting. These flowers thrive in extreme climates and mixed with Estee Lauder’s skincare technology help to increase natural collagen production. The cream is meant to give you a smoother, firmer, more lifted look. This felt very light and I could feel immediate hydration and firmness when I placed it on my skin. The Revitalizing Supreme + also caught my eye. This is designed to hydrate after cleansing (especially at night). Although I don’t have wrinkles now, I’m always on the hunt for skincare products that help prevent them. Both of these are items I would work into my skincare routine.
Next to all the amazing skincare were a few new lipsticks and mascaras that I was really excited about! First of all, the Pure Color Envy lipstick shades are gorgeous! I have a few lipsticks from this line that are quite awesome. They are hydrating and apply smooth on the lip. They are also long wearing on me. I usually see darker shades for Fall but after looking at the colours here I feel like it’ll be all about a bright wash of colour which is exciting. High Level has to be my favourite shade for Fall (it’s the coral shade at the very left in my photo above). The Pure Color Envy Lash are really fun mascaras! I did a swatch of the green shade and it’s as bright as the tube! I would probably want to try out the dark blue for Fall.
Everyone was flocking to the yummy wall of donut foundation! LOL! I have to give it to Estee Lauder, this was pretty adorable! There was tons of snacks and candy everywhere but this wall was just irresistible! The shades on the wall represented the many shades in the new Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup. This foundation has SPF 30, and is very light and liquid.
To apply, you open the cap and place your finger over the bottle to cover it while you shake it. The amount of product that is left on your finger will be enough to cover half your face! You can even apply it with your fingers because the formula blends in very easily using the warmth of your hands. This is great for all skin types since it prevents excess oil from developing on the skin while keeping it hydrated.The item that got me so excited is the Advanced Night Repair Eye Cencentrate Matrix. This item is a dream for me because I wear concealer and eye shadow on a pretty regular basis.
Not only is this designed to target the signs of eye aging, it provides a cushion for concealer and can be used as an eye primer! I love double duty items!
I’ve learned so much at the Estee Lauder Fall Preview and I’m excited for these items.
What are you most excited for in makeup come the Fall? Also, do you like rocking a colourful mascara? If so, how to you wear it?
Lots of Love,
