An Estée Lauder Evening

Hello Lovelies,

Today I wanted to tell you about an Estée Lauder Evening I was lucky enough to go to recently at the Estée Lauder Counter in my local Boots. Jenna, the Manager of the Counter is someone I went to school with and she invited me to come along.

It was at 6 o’clock in the evening and Boots was only open for those attending the Estée Lauder Event. When we went in, there were drinks and gorgeous little cupcakes for everyone and we were all given a raffle ticket. There were seats set up in front of the Estée Lauder Counter and once we had got a drink we all took a seat and there was a little gift waiting on everyone’s seat for them.

Here is what was inside my gift.....

I got a full size Double Wear Zero-Smudge Lengthening Mascara in the shade 02 Brown. I do not usually use brown mascara, but am looking forward to trying this for when I want a more natural look. Everyone got a different full size product and I think that was a really lovely touch, although I did feel a little envious of the lady next to me who got a Double Wear Stay-In-Place Flawless Wear Concealer, because I have been wanting to try this. I also got samples of Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator, Advanced Night Repair, Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging Creme and Modern Muse Eau de Parfum, which smells gorgeous. 

Once everyone had sat down Jenna gave an introduction to the evening and then did a demonstration of some skincare products, followed with a natural make up look. I found this really interesting and the model Jenna used for this looked lovely afterwards. She used one of the new Lip Lacquers in Vinyl Rose, which was probably my favourite product that she demonstrated. I learnt whilst I was there that Estée Lauder’s Lip Lacquers have the same colour pay off as a lipstick, but are also glossy and when I tried this it didn't feel sticky like some glosses do and it also lasted really well. This is definitely something I would recommend you try if you like glossy lips and want something that will last.

Following the demonstration Jenna colour matched everyone for a foundation sample and I chose a sample of Double Wear Light Foundation and the shade I was matched to was shade 2.0. I haven’t tried this yet, but am really looking forward to trying it. :)

We were then given the chance to browse the Estée Lauder products, ask any questions we had, try some products and have a chat to the other people that were there. A lovely lady helping Jenna for the night painted my nails using Estée Lauder Pure Color Nail Lacquer in So Vain, which was a gorgeous nude brown colour and I am really tempted to treat myself to it.

I really enjoyed this event and hope there are more like it in the future. 

Thanks for reading :)
