Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum

Hi everyone!
Here's my beauty product review of Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum.





Recently I have been using this ANR eye & face serum for 2 weeks now...




I really like Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum's light texture. Its not heavy or thick or rich like most eye serums and goes on my skin pretty well & absorbs quickly! It's too early to see a huge difference yet although i felt my eye area looks smoother & felt slightly firmer around the eye contour. I am currently using it under my own anti-aging eye cream and it's working well together! ;) 
I will continue to use it and will update results after 1 month of application. 

As for the Face Serum,
it has the similar lightweight texture like the Eye serum but more fluid-y.
After 2 weeks of using it, I noticed my laugh lines aka expression lines around my lips has seemed lighter and less obvious. If you have concerns like powder caking in the expression lines, this booster serum might work in reduction of the lines, hence the caking up issues.
I felt that makeup stayed on longer and better the next morning and skin looks more radiant and supple tone.


haha now I can camwhore more with more beautiful skin!

If you are looking to boost your current skincare routine, you may want to incorporate the face serum by applying it before your serums. It helps accelerate your anti aging routine!

As compared to Lancome Genefique, I feel the ANR is slightly easier to absorb due to the lightweight texture! 




Thanks Cozycot & Estée Lauder for giving me this wonderful opportunity of reviewing the product and would love to try more of ur products!


Leaving you with more photos!

THE RECEPTION

THE STUDIO where we did our recording! LET'S ROLL!!!


On Monday morning 10AM, I was at SPH News Centre KISS92 Radio Station studio doing a recording with my old friend, DJ Maddy and sharing about tons of makeup tips!
As you know, I am very excited whenever you ask me about makeup. I am someone who you can even wake me up middle of the night, asking beauty questions and I will tirelessly enthusiastically answer all your questions! ;)



I had so much FUN recording!
Its an impromptu look "POWER BROWS" we decided to ride on! The IT look all A-lister celebrities & supermodels are wearing on their faces off-duty, on red carpets & on the runways.
Nadirah & KISS team video-ed me transforming Maddy's face with the Power Brows WOW!



Are Power Brows going to stay or go? My personal take on this trend is gonna be as long lived as the ultimate Smokey Eyes & Nude Makeup on the runways too!





WHY???

Power brows, as many didn't know, can make you look suddenly YOUNG, almost erasing 5-8 years off your face! Wow! What an easy anti-aging method, ladies! Oh it isnt just for the ladies!
I personally love thick brows on guys cos I think its really sexyyy!

And you know what? The classic style icon, Audrey Hepburn is the ultimate representation of this look way back then in 1960's. Doesn't she look endearing?


Since Spring 2012, we see lots of repeats in this trend on all the fashion shows and we can't say enough! Cara Delevinge, IT supermodel has brought it back to fame again and many celebrities too!

I always teach this in my makeup workshops, sharing with the ladies, the "1950s overly plucked, highly arched brows" are so DATED passe and oh please, kindly "bring your brows out of the house"!

Brows frame the face like photoframes for the pictures. It anchors your facial features and add strong dimension and impression, making a positive impact with people you meet. People will find you more trustworthy & steady with a pair of nicely groomed brows. Well image you may argue as superficial, guess what? The subconscious mind is at play all the time!

If you are in the sales industry or need to meet people & negotiate deals, definitely brows are your anchors to succeed in power of persuasion!

At the recording, I also shared about

  • how to line your eyes with the surefire easiest technique
  • how to apply blush and not look like a clown or puffer fish
  • why using a primer is so critical to look fresh all day!

These are all recorded on VIDEO too!
You can watch it on Youtube or the link from KISS92 FM website videos. ;)
