The Estée Edit- Pore Vanishing Stick Review

The Estée Edit line– hot or not?  I love Estée Lauder products, but I was somewhat hesitant to try out the Estée Edit line, mainly because of the fact that Kendall Jenner was one of the faces of this line (not a fan of supporting anything related to the Kardashian group) however, I found myself really intrigued by the principles of the line and I had to set my biased opinion toward her aside and try something out.  I picked up the Pore Vanishing Stick.

If you haven’t heard of the Estée Edit line, here is a description from their website:

“Your beauty edit by finish- Matte. Glow. Gloss

Estée Edit is a simplified selection of instant-impact essentials. We get you out the door feeling confident and looking fresh. No complicated steps. No fancy jargon. Just the basics in 3 finishes for you to build on. Focus on your features (eyes, cheeks, lips, skin), find your finish (matte, glow, gloss) and leave the rest to us.”

I really love the philosophy of “simplicity” behind this line.  As much as I love trends and trying out new colours and cool product technology, I am more so a huge huuuuge fan of the simple looks and natural makeup.  So when I read what this line was about I had to test something out.  Props to Estée Lauder for creating a line that provides staple products that bring us back to the basics.

I decided to pick up the Pore Vanishing Stick because I have heard a lot of good things about this product in particular.  I have never really tried pore vanishing products before because I for some reason had this idea in my head that it would clog my pores and cause my skin to break out.  I also don’t wear foundation so primers and pore minimizers aren’t something I really ever got into.

With that being said I am really impressed with this product.  It is AWESOME!!  The product performs as promised, and it has not made my skin break out at all.  For all my ladies with oily skin this is a must-have!  I can’t get over how well it works.  I use this on my nose and t-zone area only, and it minimizes my pores and keeps me shine-free, it does a good job at controlling oil.  So if you’re like me and you don’t like to wear foundation this is a great alternative also as it provides “coverage” in a sense because it blurs pores without having to wear other products over top.  Or if you do like to wear foundation then this can act as a base to prime the skin, or you can apply it over your foundation as well.

You can use the product on its own, under makeup as a primer and over makeup.  The outer portion that is clear/white is composed of oil absorbing powders, and the inner portion that is flesh-toned is a pigment suitable for all skintones which provides a more even complexion.

I give this product a big thumbs up and I will definitely be repurchasing when I run out.  I purchased mine at Sephora for C$36.00 (give or take a few dollars) and you can view it here.  Have you tried any Estée Edit products?  I’d love to know what you think of the line?!
