    Boots - Estee Lauder deal 23rd Jan 10 at 9:05 PM
    Whilst in Boots today, I spotted leaflets on the Estee Lauder counter offering £7.50 worth of points when you buy any 3 Estee Lauder products (one has to be foundation). Have no idea what these products cost and imagine they are expensive but hope this will be of help to someone.

    The foundation is about £25 and the make up remover/cleanser is £16- just as an indication

    Still if anyone on here could afford it, perhaps the points will help.

    Estee Lauder foundation is too heavy for younger skin I always feel. It smells like grannies too. My mum wears it, but she's 63.

    Only ever wear a light foundation/tinted moisturiser but Avon have a mindboggling selection; you also get to try it out and return it for a full refund if you don't like it!
    Make the most of everything in life (especially Avon )

    THe Doublewear is great, and I'm not a granny, honest! Covers all sorts up, and stays there all day (and I put mine on at 6.30am!).

    I love Double Wear, it is all I will use and I am far from a 'granny'! Although, not that it would matter if I were! Just shows you how much opinions can vary, to each their own. In my opinion it is a fab product!

    I wouldn't dream of wearing any cheaper brands of foundation now and haven't for years. It is the best I have tried of all the premium brands by a mile. I do agree about the colours though, only the very lightest one is suitable for me since I gave up the tanning beds, and I don't think Estee are great at foundations/products for very fair skin generally. Otherwise, great foundation.

    Estee Lauder might be a well established brand but it certainly isn't exclusively for 'grannies' - I'm a 24 year old ex-model and Miss England contestant and I found the Estee Lauder foundation range to be excellent: not too heavy, or orange (as someone has suggested - i have rather pale skin) and great value for money as I never wore it heavily and only for nights out (special occasions).

    Definitely worth the £20-25 price tag considering how long it lasts if used conservatively...

    Miss England contestant? Did we need to know that...? Hmmm!

    It might just be me then, I've also tried Chanel's lightest shade and it looks orange on me!

    Oops! Sorry if I offended anyone, I wasn't suggesting anything bad at all about Estee Lauder! It's just that my wee granny wore it and my mum who's now a granny wears it! Maybe subconsciously I just associate it with grannies. The ads seem kind of geared towards ladies of a certain age too. I certainly don't buy cheap foundation, it's not the price that puts me off, I wear Benefit (or Clinique when I'm particularly flush) as I feel they are more geared towards younger skin. I feel brands like Estee Lauder are maybe aimed at the older market as they tend to be quite heavy - ie provide more coverage for ageing skin? I think young skin can look kind of clogged with these heavy foundations. Hmmm, yes it is strange how opinions on things are formed isn't it?
    Maybe I should pop into Boots and have a look...........oh damn, I can't. Doing this no toiletries challenge........ :rolleyes:

    If you can wait until 4th Feb House of Fraser are having a gift time.
    Normally quite a good deal.

    Btw I use double wear light. Still stays on but doesn't feel like a mask.
