these are the newest Estée Lauder products and I have not tried them all yet but some of them I did and I wanna quickly share with you what I got, tried and liked.
I loved the ADVANCED NIGHT REPAIR MASK especially after my long haul flight from California to Switzerland I needed to pamper my skin and repair the dammage from the flight. I always scare myself when wearing these kind of sheet masks but in the end they are a lot easier to apply and remove than masks that have to be washed off. I am a big fan of stay on cream masks and sheet masks and will def repurchase this new night repair mask. another thing that I really like is the NEW DIMENSION plump + fill expert lip treatment that made my chapped lips smooth and hydrated again. a stick with products on both ends, one side has a filler serum to immediately define the lip contour area and the other side has a balm that delivers plumping hydration and a conditioned feeling. my all time favorite lip product is the Elizabeth Arden 8 hour lip balm and I would never give that up but this new product by Estée Lauder is a great addition. these are the only things that I have tried so far, give me some time and I will get back to you and share what I tried and liked.

these are my favorite fragrances at the very moment and I rather leave the house without makeup than without fragrance : ) yes, I am an absolute scent person and I love to have a variety of different perfumes that fit my moods. as you can see the scents are very different, some are rather sweet and some are very fresh or herbal. my favorites are also perfumes that I can wear all year around despite the different scents. in my case I have special fragrances that I only wear in winter (GUCCI GUILTY) and some that I only wear in summer (JIL SANDER SUN, BRONZE GODDESS etc). not all of my favorite scents are for women only, the LOEWE 7 is for men : ) and the JO MALONE is unisex.
I loooove scented candles, especially in winter! so today I wanna share some of my favorite scented candles with you. and as you can see in the photo above also something that is scented but not a candle. I will get back to that soon. alright, lets start with
these are my favorite bronzing powders – I use for sure one of them every day. I am a huge bronzing powder fan and also love the new sculpting/contouring trend. eventhough the look very similar in the photo above, they are in fact not. #1 is a matte bronzing powder with absolutely no glitter or shine, this is perfect for all year around and is also a great color to use as an eyeshadow. #2 this one has a tiny bit of shimmer and glitter and is a touch warmer than the one previously mentioned. I dont like the brush that comes with it, somehow I was not able to achieve a nice and smooth looking bronzing/contouring with it. #3 this bronzing powder is a great mix between the first and second, it is not shimmery and has no glitter and shine but it is also not absolutely matte. a wonderful bronzing powder for throughout the year.
these are my favorite brushes and I almost use them on a daily basis. and now I wanna tell you why and for what I love them so much. #1 has the perfect shape for around the eyes and nose, I use it for powder, foundation or concealer. #2 this brush is an allrounder, I use it for highlighter, for blush, to blend contouring, for concealing and for foundation. #3 my go to sculpting brush, it has the perfect shape for my cheeks, jawline and forehead. #4 I use this bugger to smudge my eyeliner, to apply eyeshadow under the eyes and to conceal blemishes. #5 my number one blending brush, it works like magic, I use it for the crease and move with windshield wiping strokes to perfectly blend the shadows. #6 this one is perfect for loose or compact powder, I use it allover the face.
and by the way, did you know that Estée Lauder now has a swiss online shop? I tried it out and ordered some nice things for my mom, the service is great, fast delivery and extra goodies. have a lovely monday and I would love to know which are your favorite brushes. please leave a comment. sharing is caring, right?

yes, we all have to treat ourselves every now and then! and I did yesterday at MANOR – I stumbled upon the new courrèges collection for Estée Lauder! sigh, what a super nice collection with a shimmering bronzing powder a cute tiny brush that is perfect for travelling, two eyeshadows, several lip products and fake eyelashes. out of the whole collection I was absolutely fascinated by the minty green-ish shimmering eyeshadow. it reminds me so much of a mermaid! and zack – I had to have it! at the moment you get 10% off when paying with the MANOR card and some brands even add another 10% not the case with Estée Lauder but at least I got 10% off. instead of 39 CHF it was 35.10 CHF – a tiny bargain!
here you can watch my lovely YT video about the new eyeshadow and soon I will show you a makeUp look where you can see me play around with it.
we did it again – hahahaha, yes we again had fun with makeUp and this time I used the new SHISEIDO products among many other products. as a base I used the LANCOME CUSHION MIRACLE my newest favorite foundation and the ESTÉE LAUDER DOUBLE WEAR BRUSH ON GLOW. then I used the CHANEL 85 SILLAGE eyeshadow all over the lid. afterwards I applied the new SHISEIDO SHIMMERING CREAM EYE COLOR in the outer corner of the eye all away along the crease of the eyelid. then I used another creamy eyeshadow by M.A.C called DANGEROUS CUVÉE paint pot and also smudged it in the outer V of the eye and all the way up to the crease. unfortunately I couldnt find a picture of the dark grey ESSENCE eyeliner I have used to line the lashline. as Diana was wearing glasses that evening I decided to define her eyes a bit more by using the new ELECTRIC COBALT by ESTÉE LAUDER on the lower lash line but only from the outer corner to the middle. to bring in some more color I used the SHISEIDO VEILED ROUGE in the shade RD 506 – a beautiful warm rosy pink. another new product that I have used, but also couldnt find a photo, was the new SHISEIDO PERFECTING STICK concealer. that’s it – it was very easy and I am sure you can do something nice too!
something new will be out soon by Estée Lauder – a new version of the fantastic ENVY lipstick and it is called ENVY SHINE! so let me tell you that I already like the ENVY lipsticks due to the texture, the pigmentation and the staying power – these buggers last almost a whole day! I found some interesting facts about the ENVY and ENVY SHINE lipsticks:
ENVY (available in 31 colors (26 regular colors))
medium to full coverage
6 hours staying power
creamy and smooth
scent: red currant, tangerine, orange, apple blossom
true vision TM technology
luxurious package with the CLICK!
ENVY SHINE (availabe in 10 colors)
high gloss finish
subtle to medium coverage
4 hours staying power
smooth and soft
scent: chamomile, peppermint
I am sure I will use the ENVY SHINE a lot in spring summer when I can also wear my lovely silk dresses and feel free again 🙂 until then I am more than happy with the ENVY lipstick and will try to update my collection with some new colors. there are 31 different colors available at MANOR Basel – yes, we counted it 🙂 and I am sure I will find something nice.
my two favorite ENVY lipsticks are ECCENTRIC and RED EGO
and I was super lucky to already have two ENVY SHINE lipsticks BLOSSOM BRIGHT a lovely coral pink and INNOCENT a subtle rosy beige
its saturday morning and I just did my makeup – a very easy one with focus on the eyes. check my nine steps:
step one SUPERDEFENSE by CLINIQUE
step two ALL ABOUT EYES primer by CLINIQUE
step three PERFECTIONIST by ESTÉE LAUDER
step four WONDER PENCIL by NYX
step five EYELASH CURLER by THE BODY SHOP
step six GABON eyeshadow by NARS
step seven SILLAGE eyeshadow by CHANEL
step eight ANSE SOLEIL lipliner by NARS
step nine ANITA lipstick by NARS
to start I use a good moisturizer with SPF 20 and apply it allover my face including my neck. then I use one of my favorite eye shadow primer and let it set so it wont crease with the eyeshadow. I like my skin to look a bit dewy and thats why I love the PERFECTIONIST foundation so much, it blends in very well and makes me look super healthy and fresh. then I conceal some spots around my nose and use the same pen to line my waterline (of course I wipe the pencil before doing so) after that it is time to curl my eyelashes and I will be ready to apply eyeshadow – first I apply the wonderful dark and sparkly eyeshadow and use the ligher color to blend as a transition color. done with the eyes – ready for the lips! I line my lips and use the very subtle almost nudish brown lipstick to fill in my lips. READY for the WEEKEND! photos of the look will be soon on my FB page – stay tuned. xx

what am I talking about and why am I showing you a picture of my nails and lip? when I say DREAM TEAM I mean the new gorgeous fall collection products by ESTÉE LAUDER – the matte PURE COLOR 04 HEART BEET nailpolish and the PURE COLOR ENVY 460 BRAZEN lipstick. both are beautiful dark burgundy berry colors and work perfectly together!
last week I was invited to the press conference of Estée Lauder in Basel at the Radisson Blu Hotel. as every time the ladies from Estée Lauder prepare a lovely room and inform us about the latest news and what has happened during the year. thank you very much for inviting me! there are many new products and honestly I have no idea where to start 🙂 so I will just quickly name the products from left to right and will get back to you later with individual reviews and first impressions about each product. I left out the new PURE COLOR VELVET nailpolishes and will show them to you in a separate blogpost!
today I am wearing the new ENLIGHTEN cream, the new EE Cream and the PURE COLOR ENVY lipstick in the shade 260 eccentric and I am very happy. the EE cream leaves a nice dewy finish and makes me look about 5 years younger 😉 I will upload some photos to my instagram later. have a look! xx
