The Estée Edit by Estée Lauder: Barest Blush, Metallishadow, Mattified Lipstick + Lip Flip Shade Transformers

Estée Lauder recently released a new line of beauty products curated by Kendall Jenner, a move to help breathe some fresh, new life into the brand. And… it worked!

The Estée Edit by Estée Lauder blends the quality and consistency of this legacy brand with the vibrancy and youthful spirit of Kendall.

Estee Lauder The Estee Edit review

The signature colours are bold and bright royal blue against stark white with an exciting and urban appeal right from the get-go. I mean look at that graffiti-inspired packaging!

Once you dig into the boxes, you’re met with high quality metal compacts and tubes with the graffiti spray paint theme throughout. I received a few of the beauty goodies to play with (there is also skincare!).

Estee Lauder The Estee Edit The Barest Blush First Lover review

The Barest Blush in First Lover is a nude beige blush with gold overspray.

Notice above how I mention overspray? That beautiful gold only lasts for the first two applications. (but oh man, those two applications are glorious).

Estee Lauder The Estee Edit The Barest Blush First Lover no overspray

You’re still left with a beautiful, soft and buttery nude blush that stays on for hours and hours without fading.

After removing the overspray, I did a quick swatch on my arm. You can see this is quite pigmented and has a subtle sheen. It leans a bit more peach on my skin.

Applied here for the first time, you can see the peachy nude shade with that gold overspray. I did not use highlight in this photo (and I am so sad the gold spray is gone now!)

Estee Lauder The Estee Edit Metallishadow Creme Powder Scarlet Eclipse review

When I first saw a preview of this collection, the Metallishadow Creme + Powder really appealed to me.

I love how compact and convenient the packaging is. You get a heavily pigmented longwear creme shadow on top WITH A MIRROR. The bottom is a screw-top jar with a gorgeous, glitter pigment you can wear over top of the creme or alone.

Scarlet Eclipse contains a bold burgundy cream shadow and pairs that with…

… a rose gold loose pearl pigment.

The creme shadow is really smooth and glides on effortlessly. When you add the loose pigment on top it really transforms your look too.

I used my finger to apply the cream shadow all over my lid and into the crease. It’s important to use your fingers here to keep the cream shadow warm so you can blend. I also used a bit of a warm red shadow from Violet Voss’ Holy Grail palette to transition in the crease.

I then patted the loose pigment all over the lid and into the inner corner using a stiff, flat brush. I love this foiled look!

I was able to achieve a very metallic eye look without dampening my brush at all too!

Estee Lauder The Estee Edit Mattified lipstick Youre Welcome Lip Flip Shade Transformers Turn Up Down review

The lip products I tried really helped me master the art of the ombre lip! I wanted to create a classic red lip look with a bit of an edge.

You’re Welcome is described as a true red lipstick in a matte finish. To create the ombre effect, I turned to the Lip Flip Shade Transformers to add dimension and for a perfect shade match.

Turn Up is a yellow transformer that lightens and brightens any shade, so I dabbed that in the centre of the lip, over top of my red lipstick. Then I used Turn Down, a black shade used to darken, to deepen the outer corners making my lips look a bit fuller.

Fun sidenote: this is the look I created for Fashion Magazine’s Beauty Panel Prom Look Challenge!

    You look amazing! I want the whole collection but Turn Up is my favourite.

  • Porsha Troost

    The cream shadow duos remind me a lot of the Tom Ford shadow duo pots they put out for summer, but with a loose pigment instead of the pressed one. Did they wear well throughout the day?

  • Using the lip transformers to create an ombre – THAT’S SUCH A GOOD IDEA!

    • VioletsandIrises

      I agree–it looks so good!

  • Jenan

    The packaging on these products is so pretty! Love the blue! The lipsticks look really nice, I just wish the blush didn’t have that overspray, kinda bugs me.

    Oh man am I loving this collection! The blush and shadow are especially gorgeous!

  • Gorgeous!
    It’s really too bad that the gold in the blush was just an overlay because it looks stunning with it! Also love those ombre lips you did!

  • I am impressed by what they’re done here: this really is a fresh, youthful, fun take on the brand. I’m surprised to say my favourite is the eyeshadow duo! That looks like so much fun, and so very unique. Definitely adding that to my list.
