This product is so not worth the price tag. I usually love estee lauder products but I was completely disappointed in this product. The product feels nice on your skin but after a few hours it had disappeared from my face and I found it just goes straight for my lines even though the product is suppose fill in the lines, super cakey as well. I even tried different application methods thinking it was something i was doing but nope still was not happy and definitely wont be rebuying, was a complete waste of money.
- applies easy
- cakey and clings to any lines or impurities
- doesn't last very long
Beauty, and makeup in particular, gives me the feeling of confidence, happiness and power unlike anything else in the world. When I'm in front of the mirror experimenting with different products and looks and styles, I am in my happy place, heaven on earth.
I have tried many foundations, from different brands, different formulations, and there are some brands, like Estee Lauder, that I just keep on coming back to because I know that their products work, are effective, are value for money and a little goes a very long way, and I get instant and long lasting results. Cushion foundation is a fairly new concept, but one that makes so much sense. They have formulas that work effectively and last, the compacts are a great size to pop into your handbag for touch ups on the go, and so many brands have many great compacts to choose from, depending on the coverage and finish you desire. When Estee Lauder came out with this perfectionist serum compact makeup SPF 15, there was no doubt in my mind that I needed to own and try it.
I did my usual double cleanse, serum, moisturiser and primer, to create the perfect blank canvas for my foundation to adhere to. Cushion compacts always come with a sponge applicator, but I use a foundation brush instead, as I find that they give a better coverage and finish, so I dotted a small amount on my forehead, nose, cheeks and chin and buffed and blended thoroughly, adding more to any blemishes or red patches I had, finishing with blush, defined brows and mascara and nude lips.
The end result was everything I had come to expect from an Estee Lauder product, particularly their makeup. My skin was smooth, soft, radiant yet fully covered, and buffed and airbrushed to perfection, in no time at all. The amount dispensed was just right, and I had a full face of makeup in no time at all, another great thing about cushion compacts is their ease and speed. My makeup remained fresh looking and perfect until my evening cleanse, and I didn't need to re-apply at all during the day or night. I've used it for months now, and barely made a dent in the product at all, as so little is needed, and I feel like it has improved the condition of my skin too, with each use, my skin gets smoother, more hydrated and even, and I need less and less of the actual product, and the serum formula imparts skin with a dewy, radiant glow. It's like the benefits of skin care in a foundation compact, it's truly brilliant.
Beauty is makeup, makeup is beauty, and Estee Lauder are some of the best beauty products out there. Try this serum compact for yourself and be a perfectionist with your beauty look.
