TBG Makeup Picks 2017

As 2017 draws to an end, The Beauty Gazette looks back at the makeup launches that made our hearts flutter and emptied our purses. Click on the links for the deets. In 2017, @Badgalriri (popstar Rihanna for the uninitiated) launched her makeup collection after toying with the idea for years after the limited edition pieces she created with M.A.C in 2013. The on-trend Millennial-pink, and for-every-skin-tone marketing strategy hit the jackpot, and blew every other new masstige makeup brand launch this year out of the water. A high protection tinted suncream that evens out the skin tone with a porcelain finish, and glow. Wear it on its own or as a foundation primer. Smooth, blendable texture; good pigment, beautiful shades that all match in one palette. Not surprising that this is always sold out. This luxurious cushion gives skin a lovely soft-matte glow. It has a unique liquid-to-powder texture for a satiny, lightweight finish. Because who doesn’t love Tom Ford’s decadently luxurious lipsticks? These are sheer, but still sexy, moisturising, dreamily smooth to apply, and …

Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup

Estee Lauder got it right with this foundation. Offering medium coverage, the liquid glides on like melted butter with a satin-matte finish. I layered the Tom Ford Complexion Enhancing Primer underneath, and it stayed on like a dream. After an entire day shopping and a session at the gym, the foundation remained flawless. My pores, and dark circles were camouflaged, and the foundation did not settle into the fine lines under my eyes.  This product comes in a simple screw bottle. It can get a little messy if you are not careful, but  this also means you do not have wasted product stuck in a pump. 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻

Victoria Beckham Estee Lauder’s latest makeup capsule collection 

VB’s second collection is just as luxurious as the first. The colours are beautiful, and centred around her signature smokey make-up look. Glowy – but not shiny dewy – skin, softly-lined eyes, and matte/ glossy nude lips. Our picks: The double-ended Eye Kajal (smooth and creamy, staying power 👌🏻); Eye Ink Mascara (love the small brush, perfect for Asian eyes); Skin Perfecting Powder (mattifies and sets); Eye Matte Duo (soft colours); Aura Gloss (moisturising balm).  Watch to see the colours and textures in action.

Estee Lauder raises awareness on breast cancer: 25 years on

Every October, Estee Lauder goes all out to bring attention to breast cancer.  In 1992, Evelyn Lauder, the daughter-in-law of the brand’s founder, launched a campaign to encourage women to take better care of their bodies and health. She handed out pink ribbons at the brand’s counters, and later founded the non-profit Breast Cancer Research Foundation to benefit research on the disease. Today, Estee Lauder continues its good work.  More than $70 million has been raised to fund breast cancer research, education and medical services. This month, it rolls out limited edition pink products, with a portion of the proceeds going to the foundation.  Our pick from the lot: the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum with the pink ribbon keychain ($163), $20 from each bottle sold benefits the foundation. Breast Cancer Examination tips:  – Women above the age of 20 should do a self-examination of their breasts every month. Those aged above 40 should get a clinical breast examination once a year; while those 50 and above are encouraged to go for a mammogram …

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix

The latest extension to Estee Lauder’s signature Advanced Night Repair line (created to boost the skin’s repairing function while you sleep) is the Eye Concentrate Matrix. The lightweight serum comes with a round-tipped applicator for quick eye massages so you get brighter peepers. On the ingredient list: glycerin, urea, cucumber, barley, lady’s thistle, soybean and chamomile extracts; lactobacillus ferment; algae, birch, mulberry root extracts, and caffeine. This eye care product is lightweight enough to be used in the day as well, under make-up. It kept the fine skin under my eyes moisturised all day; not many eye creams can do this. If you’ve been staring at the computer all day and want to give your eyes a full-on treat, follow the application of the serum with the Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery Eye Mask. Then of course, rest your eyes.    

Estee Lauder Pure Color Love Lipsticks

The new range of Pure Color Love lippies from Estee Lauder are clearly targeted at Millennials.  Available in 25 shades with four finishes: matte, creme, metallic chrome, and pearlescent shimmer. While most of the collection is made up of regular pretty pinks and reds, there are a couple of bold metallic shades – black (Moon Rock), deep burgundy (Nova Noir), and a dark plum (Pocket Venus).  The Beauty Gazette‘s picks from the collection:  Strapless, a creamy, sexy pink nude  Radial Chic, a soft coral pink with a creme texture Bar Red, a true matte red Pocket Venus, a fun metallic dark plum with shimmer Proven Innocent, soft pink with a matte texture Pigmented and opaque in two slicks, the texture is lightweight. The creme versions are relatively moisturising with a soft shine, while the mattes are super pigmented (full colour in one coat) and are not too drying on the lips either.  Layer the textures to give lips extra dimension and colour: like a creme or shimmer over matte, or shimmer on creme for extra …

Eyes Wide Open:  Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery Eye Mask

If you didn’t get a good night’s rest, the tell-tale signs are around your eyes. Dry, crepey skin with fine lines caused by dehydration, along with the puffiness and dark circles, tells everyone that you stayed up too late (working/ watching videos on Youtube/ Facebook-ing/ scrolling through Insta/ online shopping/ swiping left/ Netflix-ing/ all of the above). Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair serum is famous for making your skin look like you had enough sleep when you didn’t. And now, the brand is taking things one step further with an ANR eye mask. To keep the formula fresh, the liquid is kept separate from the eye mask pads in each sachet. All you have to do is break the liquid out if its section so it soaks up the pads. Then place the infused pads on the undereye area for 10 minutes. The ANR Concentrated Recovery Eye Mask is made with lady thistle and white birch extracts to soothe and de-puff skin; as well as hyaluronic acid and rice bran extract to moisturise and firm …

Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick 

Made for quick and easy application, the “cushion stick” is a cream foundation in a twist-bottle. The sponge applicator is shaped like a fat donut, with the lightweight formula dispensed through the hole in the middle. So all you have to do is twist for one pump of the foundation, tap it onto the skin, and blend with the applicator.  This product offers light to medium coverage with a satin-matte finish.
