 LOCATION: SUNSHINE COAST, BC
   
 
Estée x R29 meets Astrid + Annika.

Estée Lauder is the luxury makeup & skincare company. Refinery 29 is an extremely well-known digital women's magazine. And the two of them together? Magic, for a beauty-obsessed fashion blogger in need of an at-home spa day – with my best friend, Astrid, along for the ride. EstéexR29's partnership produced an extremely classy makeup bag (emblazoned with the words "Rest. Repair. Repeat" in bold gold lettering) filled with samples of Estée Lauder's Advanced Night Repair skincare line. The adorable robin's-egg blue packaging, again lettered in gold, inspired us to pull on our similarly-hued pajamas, bring out the video camera, and pose together.

Skincare is obviously a super important part of keeping yourself healthy, and it's incredible what a difference these products made. All these photographs were shot after we used the products, and both of us noticed a marked change in brightness, glow, and evenness of skin, even with only the one application. Although Estée Lauder is definitely a luxury brand, with prices to match, if you're going to splurge on one part of your makeup routine, let it be the skincare. I wholeheartedly recommend this particular line.

You can watch us test and review the products on Nothing Short Of Chic's YouTube channel, and there's an outtakes reel coming tomorrow as well. Neither R29 nor Estée Lauder sponsored this post or the video, but I did receive the pouch and samples for free.

Many thanks to DJ Cleland-Hura for taking all the photos of the two of us together, and to Astrid Fiverson for joining me on this fun little project. Everything is made better with the addition of a pinch of Astrid! You can find her on Instagram at @astrid_fiverson, as well as NSOC @nothingshortofchic, R29 @refinery29, and Estée @esteelauder, as well as trolling the #AdvancedNightRepair hashtag if you so choose.

Sweet dreams!
