Super excited to tell you guys about this one! On Thursday I was lucky enough to score an invite to the launch of the new Estee Lauder diffusion line – The Estee Edit. The official face for this new makeup and skincare range is none other than Kendall Jenner and she WAS THERE at the event.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a huge K-dash fangirl but I was reduced to an excited, quivering WRECK. I don’t know what it is about megastars and celebrities but its like I lose all control of basic social functions and try and document EVERYTHING both mentally and on my phone.
No idea what is is. Maybe I AM just a big fangirl.

So it was an absolute CIRCUS inside, but I was stood in the best spot (completely accidentally) and Kendall came right up by me for the photo call! So obviously I got lots of photos, which I then splashed all over my Instagram!
I honestly don’t know how she handles all the attention, there were flashes going off, people screaming – it’s a lot to take in for someone her age, I have no idea how anyone copes with that!
Anyway – more about the makeup.
Like I said, the Estee Edit is a new line, aimed at a younger market than the traditional Estee Lauder customer. It was launched a while ago in the US, with the concept being all about simple, on-the-go makeup for the younger generation. Think lots of 2in1’s, easy to use enhancers and portable products.
FINALLY, the line has dropped here in the UK and I was so excited to get my hands on it. NEW MAKEUP!!
My top picks?
First up, I really want to get this Beam Team Hydrate & Glow cream. It’s a hydrating, tinted cream full of pearlescent glow and Hyaluronic Acid, for a plumped up complexion. I have a few of these sorts of creams but they’re all cool-toned and this is a warmer golden tone.
Flip open the lid and you’ve got a mini cream highlighter, a love golden-beige to pat on for extra glow and transparent shine. Love a multi-tasker!
I’m a big fan of the Barest Lip Colour range! If you like your nudes and Kylie Jenner type beiges, then this is YOUR ONE. They are the perfect colours for everyday big lips. (see my Youtube tutorial for how to get huge looking lips and blog post tips here)
The Barest Lip Colour formula contains Muru Muru butter to hydrate and is super creamy and lightweight. The finish is soft, with a delicate sheen for bigger looking lips. You can wear one coat for a sheer wash of colour, or layer it on for full supermodel coverage. LOVE them. I want to get at least three of them. Maybe more? (BIG OBVIOUS HINT FOR ANY OF MY FRIENDS READING THIS)
Check out the swatches of ALL 6 colours! The lipsticks have names but they’re also numbered 1-6, so number 1 starts from the left.
Au Naturel, In The Flesh, Exposed, So Bare, In The Buff, Nude Scene
The Edit Eyeshadow Palette is super portable little compact with a range of dark and day duos. The duos are designed to be use alone or swirled together.
The special part are the two transformer eyeshadows on the left. These shadows are black light shades which mean that they are sheer and shimmery in daylight but reflect light in black light, like a super 3D glowing effect.
This Flash Photo Gloss is meant to be one of the most-hyped products. It’s a blue toned gloss (which makes your teeth look white). It also has a similar blue-toned face powder to brighten your face.
