I’m pretty sure there is someone at Estee Lauder in charge of making names too long. “Nope, Perfectionist Makeup isn’t nearly long enough – go and add more words and then double it.” However, that’s not to say I’m not loving it – I totally am, not least because it contains the same technology as Perfectionist (CP+R) (eye roll) Serum so it’s got some serious skincare added in. Lauder foundations are always good – among the very best – and I’m already a fan of the horribly expensive Re-Nutriv Foundation (which I think may be being phased out) so £37 for Perfectionist seems like a positive bargain already against £63.

And the brush – what can I say? It’s a wonderful brush but totally not necessary. If you like to apply your foundation with a brush, then this one hugs the facial contours beautifully and delivers the foundation in a smooth application. Personally, I like to use fingertips (with exceptions) and find that Estee Lauder Perfectionist Youth-Infusing Makeup covers just as well using that (free) method. The brush is also £37 and launches, with the foundation, on 1st September.
