Estee Lauder New Dimension reviews: Expert Liquid Tape; Shape + Sculpt Face Kit; FW15 previews

Estee Lauder New Dimensions review

I spent one lovely morning at the dream-inspiring 130 Bloor St. West (also known as the Lauder building) while in Toronto this summer, and at long last, I finally have a post ready to share them with all of you guys about all of the lovely gems I got to learn about while I was there!

I’ve got a Pure Colour Envy makeup follow-up to finish for you guys tomorrow, but for now, here are all the skincare goodies ;)

Estee Lauder New Dimensions Expert Liquid Tape review

Estée Lauder New Dimension collection

The New Dimension collection is your standard high-tech anti-ageing collection, designed to address the structure and volume of the skin to maximize contours and minimize wrinkles, but it contains one product that (I think) makes it really special: the Estée Lauder New Dimension Expert Liquid Tape ($70 USD/$78 CAD).

The Expert Liquid Tape is made to be used like actual tape, which is… kind of super cool. You’ll want to apply it to clean, dry skin and let it tighten and lift the area over the next 10 minutes, laying down thin, even strips of product from the brow bone, undereye, and nasolabial fold to the temple.

Estee Lauder Expert Liquid Tape review

Unfortunately, I didn’t see a lot of lift from the Expert Liquid Tape, and it’s definitely not (as I know some of you were wondering) strong enough to lift a monolid or add a double fold. It’s a very unique product, though, and I think it’s definitely worth checking out if you’re a fellow product nerd! ;)

Estee Lauder Sculpt Shape compact review

The other New Dimension product that I really got to test out is the Estée Lauder New Dimension Shape + Sculpt Face Kit ($50 USD/$55 CAD), which features two neutral-toned cream products and a sponge to blend them with.

Like the Expert Liquid Tape, however, the Estée Shape + Sculpt Face Kit didn’t quite work for me. The contour shade was too warm for my skintone, and the cream highlighter was actually darker than my face! (Which, yes, looks just as weird as you think it would.)

Estee Lauder Little Black Primer review

The makeup world is all about dual-ended liners right now, and Estée’s throwing a pretty cool offering into the ring: their Little Black Liner ($30 USD/$34 CAD), which has a pen-tip on one end… and a paddle tip on the other. The paddle tip can be used flattened to create a dramatic line in one swipe, or turned on its side to use the thinner edge, which I think is pretty ingenious!

Estee Lauder Nightwear and ReNutriv preview

The new Re-Nutriv products are wayyyy out of my budget, but I can’t help but swoon a little at the Re-Nutriv Ultimate Diamond Transformative Energy Eye Creme ($250 USD/$275 CAD). Designed with Black Diamond Truffle Extract, it comes with a diamond-faceted applicator wand whose tip rotates 360°, made to dab on product (using the flat end) and massage it in (with gliding motions and the rotating tip).

Oh! And don’t miss the new cucumber-scented NightWear Plus Night Detox Cream and 3 minute mask!

Estee Lauder Double Wear Makeup To Go review

Aaaand finally, for everyone who’s going crazy about cushion compacts (liquid foundations in powder foundation-esque packaging): Estée just came out with a Double Wear Liquid to Go Compact ($45 USD/$50 CAD), too. One click dispenses enough product for a touch-up; two clicks, enough for full coverage.

The Double Wear On the Go formula is sheerer and more luminous than the original, so matte-haters, take note!

    • Aww, I'm so glad to hear that you liked Le Rouge, Melissa! It wasn't really up my alley (I don't usually do florals), but I loooved the packaging–very, very chic ;)

  • jenn

    i have a tube of that tape and still haven't tried it yet. mostly b/c i'm not exactly sure where i need to lift..and if it will hold. i think they said somehting about it being for lighter makeup days? maybe putting on a lot of product over top will move the tape around…IIiiiii dont know.

    as for trying out other Estee Lauder. i really like their lip products latetly and their older eyeshadows were so good.

    • Yeah, you're not really supposed to disturb the film once it's applied — which doesn't really jive for me, lol! My skin is dry enough that it physically hurts if I don't moisturize, so it's tough to apply something non-moisturizing onto bare skin and then NOT follow up with anything else!

      Haha your comment leads me to believe that you're not a fan of the new eyeshadows… T/F? :p

    I agree the lift tape does nothing…but that serum is pretty awesome. EXCEPT it breaks me out if I use it every day. I wish EL would stop with the silicones in their skin care….drives me bonkers.

    • Ahh that sucks!! I wish they'd stop with the silicones, too — but then, you know exactly why ;)

      I hope someone (even EL themselves) runs with the tape idea and comes up with something stronger someday. That would be really cool to see!

    I have the New Dimension Shape + Sculpt Eye Kit which is really nice at creating neutral eye looks. At first I was very excited about the lift tape but hearing about how it doesn't do much lifting has made me take it off of my shopping list.

    • Yeah, I think it's one of the products that you can definitely skip. That Shape + Sculpt Eye Kit looks awesome, though! I do love a good neutrals palette ;)
