Estee Lauder Heat Wave

8/31/2017



Originally launched in 2013., I remember lusting after the Estee Lauder powder gelee's be it their higlighters or blushes. While everyone raved about their Doublewear foundation I still dreamed of the unique gelee texture (it was particularly original back then) and the design of the pretty little pyramids. That's why it was very emotional to own this stunning piece - it definitely has collector's piece potential! The coveted heat wave highlighter by Estee Lauder finally made a comeback since its 2013 debut so I understand many were excited - and rightfully so.  Estee Lauder Heat Wave Illuminating Powder Gelee ($45.00 | 7g) is a part of the summer EL collection and was touted as a super-luxurious bronzer. Luxurious it definitely is but it's definitely not a bronzer but a highlighter.

When I first saw the packaging, I literally gasped. This very luxurious rose gold and white compact that has a magnetic closure is as practical as it's stunning. You don't have to worry about fingerprints, it has a big mirror inside and the magnetic clasp is secure. As for its contents, this is a true, proper gold highlighter. And it's not for the faint of heart or people looking for their perfect everyday highlighter. Oh no, this is a megawatt beautiful yellow golden, shimmery highlight. It's a firmly pressed powder but it feels so smooth and soft upon touch - very finely milled. The shine it imparts is quite frosty and metallic but it is so finely milled that it melts into the skin upon application.

I'm glad to say that it also blends beautifully and despite it's strong features, it doesn't leave a stark line across your cheekbones. It didn’t cling to dry patches or highlight any imperfections either. Although his type of gold highlighter is rather common these days so you can find a more affordable and easily available dupe, I will cherish this beautiful piece as a collector's item and as a perfect evening make-up highlighter. It's a special piece of make-up with which I chose to close this summer as it is one of the most beautiful products that I'll remember from this season.

  • Sjećam se da sam 2013. bila potpuno zaljubljena u Estee Lauder gelee kozmetičku liniju, od hajlajtera, rumenila pa do sjena (imala sam jednu sjenu u kolekciji). Tada su imali površinu u obliku puno malih piramidica. I kada su svi upali u vorteks histerije za Doublewear puderom, ja sam i dalje bila opčinjena jedinstvenom gelee teksturom koja je pogotovo u to vrijeme bila unikatna. Upravo zbog ovih nostalgičnih sjećanja mi je dragocjen ovaj komad kozmetike. Bio je ludo iščekivan i voljen od strane mnogih te 2013. godine kada ga je Estee Lauder tek predstavio svijetu, a sada su nas ponovo počastili njihovim prisustvom. Estee Lauder Heat Wave Illuminating Powder Gelee (Inoma Concept Store) je posebni dodatak ovogodišnje ljetne kolekcije ovog brenda. Iako ga predstavljaju kao super luksuzni bronzer, složiti ću se da je oličenje luksuza ali bronzer nije, već hajlajter.
  • Oduzeo mi je dah čim sam ga ugledala. Luksuzno pakovanje u bijeloj i rose gold boji je jednako praktično koliko je lijepo - po njemu ne ostaju otisci prstiju, ima veliko ogledalo a magnetno zatvaranje je pouzdano. Po pitanju sadržaja ovog krasnog kompakt pakovanja, radi se o istinski zlatnom hajlajteru. I on nije suptilan već privlači pažnju, tako da nije idealan ukoliko tražite hajlajter za svakodnevno korištenje. Fine je teksture koja je čvrsto presovana i radi se o puderu u kompaktu koji je tako čvrsto upakovan da na dodir djeluje glatko, mekano i gotovo kremasto. Ovaj moćni hajlajter ostavlja šimerasti zlatni sjaj na koži koji je pomalo frosty i dosta metalik. No, tako je lijepo napravljen da se po nanošenju gotovo stapa sa kožom. 
  • Drago mi je reći kako se i krasno blenda tako da, iako je intenzivan, neće ostaviti oštru liniju preko jagodica. Ne naglašava teksturu kože, nesavršenstva i ne ističe suhe dijelove lica. Iako je u današnje vrijeme na tržištu mnogo sličnih hajlajtera koje možete sa lakoćom pronaći po dosta povoljnijoj cijeni, meni je ovaj ljepotan prirastao srcu. Mislim da sam uvijek bila slaba na njega i čuvati ću ga kao kolekcionarski komad kozmetike koji je ujedno savršen hajlajter za večernju šminku. Poseban je i rado sa njim zatvaram ljetnu sezonu na blogu pošto ću ovo ljeto, između ostalog, pamtiti i po njemu.
