Before becoming a global beauty brand with ambassadors like Karlie Kloss and Fei Fei Sun, Estée Lauder was a two-person team. Estée and her husband Joseph Lauder began selling beauty products back in the 1940s, with the founder herself demonstrating them on women in salons. After a big order from Saks Fifth Avenue, their company blossomed into one of the most popular beauty brands in America. From only four face products, the brand now has an extensive selection of skincare, makeup, and fragrances. Below, we list their best selling products in the Philippines last year, so you know exactly what to pick up when you shop:
Best Selling Estée Lauder Skincare of 2018
Estée Lauder is known for their innovations in skincare, specifically for anti-aging. Some of their best selling products (half of the top 20, in fact), are all skincare products. Here are the six most popular ones that are definitely worth checking out:
1. Estée Lauder Advance Night Repair Serum Synchronized Recovery Complex II
The brand's best selling product across all categories is this repair serum. It optimizes the skin's renewal process to protect the skin from environmental damage and visibly reduce signs of aging.

2. Estée Lauder Advance Night Repair Eye Cream
Like the Advanced Night Repair serum, this cream treats signs of skin damage but specifically around the eye area. It claims to hydrate the skin around the eyes for up to 24 hours and reduce dark circles and fine lines in a span of three weeks. For extra protection, it's loaded with antioxidants that shields the eye area from free radicals.

3. Estée Lauder Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion
Estée Lauder's take on the anti-aging essence is this lightweight liquid that contains fermented cherry blossom yeast, which soothes and hydrates for brighter, plumper skin.

4. Estée Lauder Revitalizing Supreme+ Global Anti-Aging Power Soft Creme
This product was specifically developed and tested on Asian women, and it promises to minimize the appearance of pores and make the skin look bouncy, radiant, and even no matter your age.

With black diamond truffle and sculpting technologies, this rich cream is anti-aging skincare at its most luxurious. It addresses not only signs of aging but improves the contours of the skin, its radiance, firmness, and tone.

6. Estée Lauder Perfectionist [CP+R] Wrinkle Lifting/Firming Serum
The CPR-75 technology in this serum targets lines and wrinkles by doubling the skin's natural ability to build collagen. This also helps add density and lift to sagging skin, improving overall firmness.

Best Selling Estée Lauder Makeup of 2018
Of course, we can't forget about the brand's vast selection of skin and color cosmetics. From a cult-favorite liquid foundation to new and exciting formulations, here are four makeup product that flew off the counters last year:
1. Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Liquid Foundation
This liquid foundation is known worldwide for its impeccably longwearing coverage and flawless finish. It's the most popular item in Estée Lauder's makeup aisles, and with 30 shades to choose from, we aren't surprised.

2. Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Rebellious Rose
If there's one lipstick color you have to try from the brand, it's the creamy and luminous formula that is the Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipsticks. The shade Rebellious Rose is their most popular shade yet, perhaps for its warm rosy hue that's perfect for Filipina skin.

3. Estée Lauder Pure Color Love Lipstick in Burning Love
But if you prefer a shine-free finish on your pout, the Pure Color Love Lipstick in Burning Love has an ultra-matte finish in a deep, warm red hue. It's Estée Lauder's best selling red for 2018, which is reason enough to try it.

4. Estée Lauder Double Wear Nude Fresh Makeup SPF 30/PA++
Think of this product as the "no makeup" makeup version of the original Double Wear foundation. It has the same 24-hour longwear formula, but a more lightweight and natural finish you'd love to wear daily. The SPF 30 is definitely a bonus, too!
