Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair.

This is part two of my compensated review from BlogHer and Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair.

So did you make your way to your nearest Estée Lauder Counter on July 23rd for the ULTIMATE SKINCARE GIVEAWAY? I did! As part of our original BlogHer review for Advanced Night Repair, I was fortunate enough along with a busload of other bloggers, to be treated to a visit to Macy’s in Chicago for a special event celebrating Advanced Night Repair. I’m here to tell you all about it.

After being greeted warmly by the Estée Lauder team, we were treated to two presentations; Evelyn Briley taught us about the product itself and Theresa Selvaggio gave us a spirited look at the life of Estée Lauder, the woman and entrepreneur. We were able to learn about what makes Advanced Night Repair so successful and how much research has been done to make it so effective. It was great information but I really enjoyed learning about Estée Lauder, the woman. The woman who wasn’t “allowed” to give out samples of her perfume in a department store, so she showed up on a crowded Saturday afternoon and dropped a bottle of it in the middle of the place, letting it shatter so that the fragrance filled the air. Sounds like my kind of lady.

After the presentations we all had the opportunity to meet with Estée Lauder make up artists for a personal consultation and make up touch up. As I mentioned in my previous review, I’m a long time Estée Lauder customer so I’m familiar with the products but it was really helpful to talk with an expert one on one about my skin tone and how to combine the products for the best effect. I wish we had done some before and after pictures can I can tell you, there was a whole lot of pretty ladies walking out of Macy’s that night and heading back to BlogHer.

One last thing. As a thank you gift, Estée Lauder gave us all gift bags with some sample products enclosed. In my bag there was eye-shadow (lovely, by the way) and the new TurboLash mascara. This was not part of the review but I would be doing you a disservice if I didn’t tell you to go out and get that mascara RIGHT NOW. I am extremely picky when it comes to mascara and rarely find one that I really, really like. Listen, ladies, it vibrates. I can’t tell you why this works but wow- it does. The mascara glides on smoothly, doesn’t clump and my lashes look long and full. It’s magical. I’m in love.

I want to send my thanks to the team at Estée Lauder for sharing their products and expertise with me and the rest of the BlogHer reviewers. I enjoyed my visit to Macy’s and I look forward to my next visit to the Estée Lauder counter.
