Product Launches: Estee Lauder Makeup

Estee Lauder is launching a limited edition Michael Kors Very Hollywood makeup collection.

Estee Lauder has also reformulated their popular Resilience Lift Extreme Radiant Lifting makeup SPF15 to pair with their number one selling moisturizer Resilience Lift Extreme Ultra Firming Moisturizer SPF15. The make-up retails for $36.50 and comes in a variety of shades.

Resilience Lift Extreme Ultra Firming Moisturizer SPF15 is available in cremes and lotions and retails for between $49.50 and $85.00.

In addition, they have launched a new wrinkle filler, Perfectionist [CP+] Targeted Deep Wrinkle Filler which retails for $39.50 for a 0.50 ounce tube . It is meant to be used with their Perfectionist Wrinkle Lifting Serum and Time Zone Line and Wrinkle Reducing Creme SPF15 and Time Zone Anti Line/Wrinkle Eye Creme. This new wrinkle filler appears to be very similar, at least in theory, to the Estee Lauder manufactured Good Skin Tri-Aktiline Instant Deep Wrinkle Filler which is sold exclusively at Kohl's in a 1 ounce tube and retails for $39.50.

These products are available at Estee Lauder counters and the Estee Lauder website.

Chanel Sublimage Essential Regenerating Cream Texture Supreme

I had the opportunity to sample Chanel Sublimage Essential Regenerating Cream Texture Supreme in a generous 0.17 ounce tube.

This thick cream is designed to help with, according to the Chanel website, "...wrinkles, loss of firmness, dehydration, lack of radiance and inconsistency in pigmentation are pinpointed at once for regenerating action, leaving skin revitalized, regenerated, radiant..."

This product contains Vanilla Planifolia extract from Madagascar and according to Chanel, "...Sublimage is powered by Planifolia PFA, engineered by Chanel Research..."

This seems to be a product designed for more mature, drier skin types. On my combo skin it didn't sink in very quickly or completely. Additionally, the scent is quite strong and lingers, although it is very pleasant.

Because of the thick texture I found this product worked really well for me using it as a moisture mask. It feels very luxurious and rich and makes me feel I am doing something good for my skin. There is something about a product with the name Chanel on it that just feels so special.

Available from Chanel, a 1.70 ounce jar sells for $375.00.

Ingredients: Currently unavailable.
