As you know, I am a huge Estee Lauder fan. So, when they contacted me to see if I would like to check out the new Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix, I jumped at the chance for a sample!

I have been blinking, squinting, laughing, crying, and narrowing my eyes as I throw some shade for the past four decades. With all of these different eye expressions, come movements which cause the skin around my eyes to crinkle, wrinkle, and move. Also, the more expressions we make with our eyes, the more chances we have of getting fine lines and wrinkles. This is what we call aging. Ho-hum. I thought I would never age???

In order to combat the fine lines, stress, and puffiness our eyes encounter on a daily basis, the new Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix is here to save the day. This product claims to repair visible signs of eye aging which includes fine lines, wrinkles, under eye puffiness, and uneven skin tone. It also claims to fortify the thin skin around the eye area which will help to increase density. Lastly, the new Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix claims to hydrate with deep, lasting moisture which lasts for a full twenty-four hours.

Let’s chat about how the new Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix worked on me! I tested it out for three weeks. I figured this would be enough time to see if it works. Although the instructions say to use it above the eyelid, as well as below the eye; I only used it below my eye. I have a deep seeded fear of applying anything other then powder eye shadow or mascara anywhere near my eyelid.

I implemented it into my nighttime skin care routine. So, I used it once per day, at night. Right away on day one I noticed improved moisture around my eye area. This was a good sign!! One day two, I noticed it was helping with my puffy under-eyes. I don’t get puffy eyes everyday, but when the weather is hot or I am not getting enough sleep, I get puffy under-eyes. The new Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix helped to combat that, and keep my under-eyes puff-free. Love that!

It took about two weeks for me notice my fine lines were more difficult to detect. They were not gone, but less visible. That is always a plus! As for uneven skin tone, I don’t have very much, so I couldn’t really be a tester for that claim. I don’t have wrinkles around my eyes yet, just fine lines. So this has been a great product for combating those fine lines; which helps to keep them from turning into full blown wrinkles. Love!

The new Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix is now a must-have for my evening skin care routine. I love how it combats the puffiness I sometimes experience, and I also love how my fine lines are less visible. I recommend adding this to your routine too!

Estee Lauder Pure Color Love lipstick collection review

estee lauder pure color love lipstick review

Estee Lauder’s has a fabulous new lipstick collection! The Pure Color Love lipstick collection by Estee Lauder is absolutely amazing. The collection offers thirty beautiful shades ranging from classic buff to on-trend blue. There is something for everyone in the new Estee Lauder Pure Color Love lipstick collection! Love that!

I have been a huge fan of Estee Lauder since I was a child. It was always my Mom’s favorite cosmetics brand, so when I stole makeup from my Mom’s bathroom in my high school days, it was always Estee Lauder. It’s OK though, last time I bought an Estee Lauder lipstick she stole it from me; and that was last summer!

Let’s get back to the new Estee Lauder Pure Color Love lipstick collection shall we? There is a large range of buff hues, pinks, purples, and avant-garde blues in the new collection. If you are looking for daytime, nighttime, party, or office-appropriate colors, there is something in this collection for your event, day, or mood. Love!

The lipsticks in Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Love collection offer long-lasting color which feels weightless. Nothing is more annoying then sticky, heavy lipstick you want to rub off. This is not that lipstick! It is so comfortable, and the color is even; no streaks! It applies smoothly, without creating any mess. Love that!

My two favorite colors are both matte lipsticks. I love “Blase Buff” for a subtle lip color, and “Proven Innocent” for a flirty pink lip. You can see my two favorite colors below:

Estee Lauder Pure Coloe Love Blase Buff lipstick

This is Blase Buff from the Estee lauder Pure Color Love lipstick collection. It is the perfect buff hue to wear daily. It is also great for travel since it goes with everything! This is just a great basic lipstick color, I am in love!

Estee Lauder Pure Color Love lipstick in Proven Innocent

Proven Innocent by Estee Lauder is a fun and flirty pink color. This is perfect for the spring and summer. I love pink lipstick! Estee Lauder Proven Innocent lipstick is perfect to wear during the day or at night. I can wear this anytime. Love!

There are thirty colors in the new Estee Lauder Pure Coloe Love lipstick collection. Which one is your favorite?

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair skin care collection review

Estee Lauder skin care is something I grew up with. As a small child, I have fond memories of my Mother bringing me to the Estee Lauder counter to purchase cosmetics and skin care. It was always her favorite beauty brand; and decades later, it still is! When I opened the box containing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair collection, she gasped and asked if she could have it. Sorry Mom, this collection is for me!

I am an extremely busy Mother of three energetic, and involved children. My kids play music, sports and are active in scouting. In addition to managing my children’s schedules and activities, I have my own work and activities to manage. It can be a bit much. The activities and overall stress I face each day take a huge toll on my skin. We really do wear our stress on our faces. When Estee Lauder sent me their fabulous Advanced Night Repair skin care system, I was extremely thrilled. This is exactly what my stressed-out face needs!

There are several amazing products in the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair skin care collection. Each product works in it’s own special way to cleanse, and repair skin while we sleep. The Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Foam is ideal to use on a nightly basis to wash off makeup, and all the pollution, and dirt our skin captures during the day. I love how soft and clean my skin is after using it.

The Estee Lauder Advanced Night Micro-Cleansing Balm is also a fabulous way to clean skin at night. I have been using it when I wear foundation, or feel like I need a little extra cleansing that night. Both cleansers are perfect for everyday use, the difference I noticed was in the consistency. I tend to prefer a foam cleanser, which is why I have found myself reaching for the foam nightly, but if you prefer a silkier consistency in your cleanser, then the balm will be your go-to nighttime cleanser from the collection.

After cleaning my skin, I have been using the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair eye and the Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II on my skin nightly. These two products have really made a difference in brightening up my skin and overall complexion. Love!

When it comes to masks, I don’t have a lot of time, so I have used the masks once every other week. They do a fabulous job of refining my skin and smoothing it out.  I have been using the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Intense Recovery Ampoules twice per week, and have enjoyed excellent results.

I have been using the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair skin care system for one month now, and I have noticed a huge difference in my overall skin tone. My skin is cleaner, more clear, softer, and fresher. The stress I feel is no longer showing in my skin. Love that!

The Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair skin care system is absolutely amazing! I highly recommend integrating these products into your night skin care routine. You can find the collection online here.
