BeautyStat Featured In August 2011 Allure Magazine: “Magic Potions” Q&A With Founder/Cosmetic Chemist, Ron Robinson


BeautyStat.com's Founder & Cosmetic Chemist Featured In August 2011 Allure Magazine: "Magic Potions"

Behind every product that smooths your frizz or brightens your skin, there’s a scientist with a lab coat and a dream.  Cosmetic chemists share their favorite products and biggest beauty innovations.

Q&A with Ron Robinson, Founder of  BeautyStat.com

Product He Admires:  The Px Renova (Tretinoin cream) 0.05% was approved by the FDA in 1995 and was proven to reduce fine facial wrinkles, fade brown spots and smooth surface roughness.  More over the counter retinoid products  came on the market (using Retinol) from brands like Neutrogena, Avon and Estee Lauder.

The Next Big Thing:  I think at-home frizz-smoothing treatments will continue to evolve – they’re going to be safer and work better.  If you have really tight, curly hair, soon there will be products that can actually straighten it at-home – and don’t contain toxic formaldehyde.

(Review & Video) Estee Lauder Pure Color Lipstick, Nail Lacquer for Spring/Summer 2011


Estee Lauder is always consistent when it comes their Pure Color line, whose long-lasting lipsticks and nail lacquers never fall short in the color department (yes, aptly named).

A few of their latest lip colors and lacquers crossed our desk recently, and one of our favorites is the lacquer in Enchanted Garnet, a berry shade:

The other nail lacquer new to Estee Lauder is called Limited Edition called Wild Storm, which is a frosty gray.

There are a total of 16 different lipsticks that stand out, and they range from light to dark: they’re fade resistant, moisturizing, and distinctly visible. Choose from four different shades from satin, luminous, sheer, and brilliant. In terms of color, these colors are really …Pure Color.

Nat is wearing Pink Parfait in the video below. The lipsticks are $24 each and the nail lacquers are $19.

What is great about the Estee Lauder lipsticks is that they truly are long-wearing. There’s no worry about “will it come off during lunch,” or “will it look good after a long, grueling day.” It definitely holds its own, depending on the finish you get. The nail lacquers also stay on a very long time (ours lasted for over a week, and that’s true staying power). The finish is also very high-end: glossy and lustrous. For $19, this is an excellent investment nail lacquer.

We are huge fans of this line for this season. Tell us, are you an Estee Lauder fan? Do you normally wear their lipsticks and color cosmetics?

(Review) Estee Lauder Debuts New Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator


If there’s something I can’t stand…it’s uneven skin tone. It rubs me the wrong way, and this really means everything from blotchiness to acne. In fact, no amount of careful foundation layering can conceal the true nature and texture of good skin.

I’ve tried a lot of products over the years, and found that the more I searched, the less I found. Like a true light at the end of the tunnel, I knew that once I found a product that absolutely did what it said, and performed the way it was supposed to, I wouldn’t really need to find anything else.

In just two weeks, the new Estee Lauder Even Skintone Illuminator (the first fast acting serum that addresses these issues for all ethnicities and skin tones) showed it reduced uneven skintone. The new serum also instantly illuminates the skin to make it immediately radiate, using the Triple-Optic technology. There’s also a CorrectTone Technology that combines proven anti-aging and anti-spot ingredients.

The packaging says that even the very first application will make you see significant results. Seeing is believing, and I loved the no slip, instant results, true to life performance of the Idealist Skintone Illuminator.

The scent is actually very subtle – the signature Idealist scent which is a blend of luminous floral and sparkling citrus notes. A 30ml bottle will retail for $58, and a 50 ml bottle retails for $85. These will be in stores nationwide in June 2011.

Estee Lauder is known for capitalizing and enhancing its past successes (think Bronze Goddess). The Idealist line includes our favorite, the Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher, as well as the Refinishing Eye Serum.  Both have very silky textures, and the new Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator performs the same way.

Estee Lauder Idealist Skintone Illuminator

I’ve been using my serum for a day now, and love the feel of it. It’s also non greasy since it contains zero oil. If it can do for my skin even a fraction of what it promises on the box, I would have found my Holy Grail, all for an extremely worthy price.

(Review): Estee Lauder’s Bronze Goddess Soleil Fragrance, 2011


Estee Lauder wants you to be a Bronze Goddess once again. For several summers they have turned out a Bronze Goddess collection to go with the beautiful Bronze Goddess fragrance. Well it’s that time again and there’s a new goddess on the block: Bronze Goddess Soleil.

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Soleil

The original Bronze Goddess scent , which  itself was the new version of the Tom Ford for Estee Lauder fragrance Azuree Soleil (and basically unchanged), was the go- to summer beachy  scent. It was a departure for Lauder and not like any of their previous offerings. It instantly transported you to the ocean with it’s fragrant wave of suntan lotion, salt air, coconut and tiare.

Now in addition to the original fragrance which returns again this season, we have the Soleil version. Bronze Goddess Soleil is a floral, much more so than the original while still maintaining that tropical quality.  It’s dewy and slightly sweet thanks to notes of neroli and pink lily nectar  but a hint of the suntan lotion accord of the original seems to be still in there in the tiniest amount.  Citrus in the form of bergamot, tangerine and lemon tree petitgrain notes,  provides a little zest . Soft musks and light (blonde) woods round things out and by the drydown you still have that day at the beach kind of scent.

It fairly yells SUMMER and wears lightly and fresh and will surely complement the hot days to come. Estee Lauder calls it a “Solar Citrus Floral”, meant to evoke the sun as opposed to the sand of the original scent.

Both Bronze Goddess and Bronze Goddess Soleil are LE for the season and retail for $ 55.00.

Are you a Bronze Goddess fan? Why or why not?
