This is THE BEST Lift foundation, I use all my "lift" serums and creams first, follow with EL's smoother (Use a make-up brush on everything possible allowing drying time in between, put on concealers and last compact lifting foundation (also with make-up brush)...sponge to smooth. Follow with translucent mineral powder. Then apply contours, blush, etc. YES, it's worth the effort !!! :-)
I don't want to give this a bad review, because for others it may work well. I have very dry skin, but even after lots of moisturizing, this product did not spread well or evenly for me. However, before I ordered this, I was using a drug store compact makeup that worked great, so I know I can use compact makeup. I ordered this one because I have used Estee products before, and thought this would give me a little bit more coverage. I returned it for the liquid version of this makeup, which I haven't received yet.
Being in the group of older women, it's so important that less is better. Resilience Lift Extreme allows good coverage without a heavy makeup look and feel. Makeup lasts through the work day with minimal repair, which suits my lifestyle. I would highly recommend this makeup, the same as any of the fine EL products.
I'm been using your products since long time ago; this is the first time I bought this type of make-up because I'm very traditional and I always using the liquid one. But know I told myself "What are you doing?, this is perfect, easy to used, nice finish and light". jajaja, This is the glory!!!! So nice, and a very very good price.
Thank you Estee Lauder !!!! We are beautiful girls with your products....and I'm not a model jajajja
..and convenient, and fragrance free, and perfect color match for my fair Nordic skin tone (1N1 Fair) - the coverage is wonderful, it dries to a soft matte finish. It looks like my skin, but without the little red irritations my thin, fair skin is heir to. More, and this is big for me: I find that I don't have to use an additional concealer for my allergic under eye circles that have annoyed me since I began wearing make up long ago. It covers them just enough to make my face look "real" - not airbrushed into Barbie-doll-ness, just me, but an improved version. This is a beautiful make up, and no other high end or low end make up can compare, and I've tried most of them in my lifetime. This is the one, I love it, and I highly recommend it.
I have been in the beauty industry for 40 years and tried everything. This is the most outstanding foundation for my dry, sensitive skin and the shades are impeccable. Not only does it also cover my discolorations but actually hydrates and does not settle in my lines. Awesome.
Since I found this foundation, I keep buying it. It goes on easily and looks luminous, not shiny. I find it easier to apply and blend than liquid foundations. My complexion looks natural and not made up with heavy makeup. I love it and hope they don't change it.
I was looking for a compact foundation which is not drying and my search ended when I found this amazing product. Goes on so smooth without ofcourse being cake or flaky. Needless to say its worth every penny. I first apply day wear BB cream and then my Resilience Lift Extreme. I don't even feel the need to top it with powder. It just blends to my skin and gives instant glow.Love it!
The product so far, has been satisfactory it goes on smooth, stays on for a long time. Easier to carry the compact around than a bottle.
I've used Estee Lauder products since 1977, and very sorry that there is not a Estee Lauder counter within 70 miles from our home.. Not easy trying to order over phone or on computer..Need that personal touch and trials. Hope there will be an representative one day again in our city.
I wanted to switch from the makeup I've been buying from a big French company because (1) they do animal testing & EL doesn't and (2) I'm a huge EL fan - skincare, eye makeup, fragrance. The color was perfect, but I was disappointed in the coverage - I had to pile it on to get the same coverage I got with my old compact makeup, but this gave my skin a caked, made-up look - and it was quite shiny. Normally I steer clear of things labeled "radiant" or "illuminating," knowing they will look greasy or shiny, but that wasn't even in the description. I'm disappointed, as I really wanted to switch to EL for my foundation. I'll be returning it.
Don't you hate it when you find a great product and a perfect color, and then the company changes it or discontinues it? Thank goodness Estee Lauder hasn't done that with Resilience Lift Extreme. I've been ordering this product for years, and it never fails to please. Don't change a change, Estee!
Great compact to carry with you. This makeup goes on smoothly.without streaking and gives a natural look. I like that it has SPF. I actually called in for advice and was delighted with the the person I spoke with. She advised me to get the color Dawn, and I love it. I apply it with the sponge, but I plan on trying it with a brush - just to see, I lke that I can get a very light coverage, but can also apply it heavier to get more complete heavier coverage.
