Estée Lauder Acquires Tom Ford for $2.8 Billion USD

Estée Lauder is officially concluding its deal to acquire Tom Ford. The beauty conglomerate is expected to tap other partners to help with the fashion and accessories side.

The Wall Street Journal was first to report the completion of the deal. While New York-based Estée Lauder Cos. is the main buyer, they will involve additional partners to help the beauty brand to understand the workings to enter into the competitive luxury fashion and accessories space. Earlier this month, Business of Fashion reported that Tom Ford is worth around $3 billion USD.

It was also recently reported that Estée Lauder was competing with French luxury conglomerate Kering. Ford’s former employer. In 2004, Ford and his business partner Domenico De Sole parted ways and in 2005, the Tom Ford brand launched as Estée Lauder’s official beauty partner. Now, owning Tom Ford will drive greater profits for the group as Tom For sits on prestigious makeup and fragrance categories, growing 18% and 13% respectively during the second quarter of 2022.

It is unclear if this new deal will allow the Tom Ford brand to continue to expand into the womenswear collection and if Tom Ford himself will continue to be the brand’s creative director. Come into the beautiful world of Tom Ford.

Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Diamond Transformative Energy Dual Infusion serum

Estée Lauder adds to its successful Re-Nutriv range with the new Ultimate Diamond Transformative Energy Dual Infusion. Dual Infusion combines two exquisite serums that fuse together to rejuvenate and renew your skin. Each serum is sealed apart in its own chamber, which helps preserve its full power.

The golden vial houses a collagen-boosting renewing elixir, while the platinum vial holds a retexturizing radiance serum. Both formulas combine a double concentration of the precious black diamond truffle extract, a signature ingredient of the Re-Nutriv collection, with Estee Lauder’s time-tested youth-preserving technology.

A single press on the dispenser releases just the right amount of the two formulas that are blended in an energizing, lightly textured infusion. The product delivers a transformative effect, making the skin more radiant, smoother, firmer, and more sculpted. This luxury skincare targets multiple signs of aging as it lifts and contours the skin, evens out the skin tone, and makes lines and wrinkles less visible.

This lavish treatment is made with some of the world’s most expensive ingredients – such as the black diamond truffle – of the highest quality. The precious truffle is sourced exclusively for Re-Nutriv from the southwest of France, and then transformed by the use of cutting-edge technology in a powerful, energizing extract rich in proteins and vitamins.

It takes 10 to 15 kilos of the world’s most expensive fungus to yield just one kilo of the pure black truffle extract, and this is how much Estee Lauder can make in one year. This surely explains the price of the Dual Infusion serum, which is $405.00 USD for a 30ml/ 1oz. bottle.

Estée Lauder Holiday Crackers


Estée Lauder’s Holiday Crackers are like candies that you want to eat – they look very delicious, and beautiful. Also, a very good idea for Christmas time. Estée Lauder Holiday Cracker offers three most popular brand’s fragrances: Beautiful, Pleasures, and Modern Muse.

Estée Lauder Beautiful

Estée Lauder’s vision, carried out by Evelyn Lauder, was to create a fragrance that made every woman feel she was the most beautiful woman in the room.

The fragrance of a thousand flowers. Romantic, feminine, memorable. Ever romantic, Beautiful is represented by a bride to symbolize a woman at her most feminine, romantic and beautiful.


Estée Lauder Pleasures

Created in 1995, Estée Lauder Pleasures set the trend for uplifting, airy fragrances and introduced the Sheer Floral fragrance type. Evelyn Lauder created it to have a sheer, elusive, luminous quality. It captures the clarity of flowers just after a spring rain. This wonderful fragrance has been one of best selling fragrances for many years.

Whatever the fragrance was to be, I wanted it to have an elusive, textural quality. And we have achieved it with Estée Lauder Pleasures. For the first time, there is a fragrance that unfolds like a flower in the warmth of the sun, surrendering its scent little by little.

Evelyn Lauder

One of life’s simple pleasures. Fresh as flowers after a Spring rain, this sheer, shimmering floral is a spirited blend of Lilies, White Peonies and Jasmine, all tingling with the rare essence of exotic Baie Rose. Never sweet, ever fresh, it delights your senses with pleasure after pleasure.


Estée Lauder Modern Muse

Modern Muse was inspired by the complexity of a modern woman, with the same dynamic contrasts as her life and her personality. Her creative energy and magnetic femininity are captured by its multi-faceted, sparkling floralcy. Her sleek style, strength and sensuality by its sleek woods.

Be an inspiration. Experience the fragrance that captures your style, your confidence, your creative spirit. An alluring contrast of sparkling florals and sleek, sensual woods. Two distinctively different accords – Sparkling Jasmine Accord and Sleek Woods Accord – provide an intriguing dual impression. It’s a true innovation in fragrance design, as complex and fascinating as the woman who inspires it.





Estée Lauder Fights Blue Light Pollution



Estée Lauder’s skincare and cosmetics collections exemplify the best that technology and science can achieve. It began in 1946 with one face cream and the desire to bring out the beauty in every woman. 1982 saw the launch of the No1 Repair Serum, Advanced Night Repair.

Supercharge the beauty of your eyes with Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex, a potent eye treatment that targets signs of ageing and fatigue around the delicate eye area.

Estée Lauder introduces the improved new version of its Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex Synchronized Recovery, which is now specifically designed to target and repair signs of ageing caused by blue light pollution.



According to latest findings, blue light coming from our electronic devices can disrupt natural rhythm of sleep and skin repair. The light which is essential during the day can be extremely dangerous at night. Exposure to blue light can trick our body to believe it’s still daytime, disrupting its natural rhythms, including melatonin production, and affecting sleep patterns. This is the highest energy wavelength of visible light, and its waves can even penetrate skin more deeply than notorious UVA or UVB rays.

The Estée Lauder Research and Development team have investigated the phenomenon and proven that blue light can negatively impact skin’s natural repair processes. On the other hand, more than 3/4 of women in the U.S. sleep with a device within reach, and over 2/3 say that looking at their device is the last thing they do before going to sleep. Yet only 30 minutes of nighttime blue light exposure can severely affect skin’s natural repair processes that happen overnight.



To meet the demands of a modern woman, Estée Lauder has reformulated its bestselling nightly treatment which now includes 10X Concentrated Repair Technology. The Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex Synchronized Recovery – patented until 2033 – reveals a bright, moisturized, visibly rejuvenated skin while visibly reducing the signs of aging, including puffiness and dark circles. It brightens the eye area in just 3 weeks.

Providing 24 hour hydration with a potent hydration booster, including Hyaluronic Acid. Also protects against external aggressors with eight hour antioxidant power (part of the brand’s multi-action anti-pollution defence technology) that protects the skin against pollutants and free radical damage. Visibly reviving and re-energising skin around the eyes, the recharging formula also contains exclusive ChronoluxCB™ to help promote skin’s natural repair process, which is essential for younger, brighter-looking skin. After use, skin around the eyes appears smoother and radiant with a soft, silky feel.


Estée-Lauder-Advanced-Night-Repair-Eye-Supercharged-Complex-Synchronized-Recovery-Visual-06.jpgEstée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex Synchronized Recovery features a refreshing gel-crème formula that absorbs quickly leaving the skin feeling soft and supple. It should be used daily, morning and evening, on clean skin around eye area. After use, skin around the eyes appears smoother and radiant with a soft, silky feel.

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex Synchronized Recovery comes in a 15ml jar, and is available at selected stores worldwide. Come in the beautiful world of Estée Lauder.




Remember Estée

Estee Lauder

Cosmetics capitalist Estée Lauder (Josephine Esther Mentzer) died at 95 on this date, 24 april, in 2004. She was born to Hungarian immigrants who ran a hardware store, and she became interested in cosmetics through the work of her uncle, a chemist who developed beauty products and fragrances. In 1953, she introduced her first fragrance, Youth Dew, a bath oil and perfume that sold 50,000 bottles in its first year and 150 million by 1984. She co-founded her eponymous company in 1946 with her husband Joseph Lauder (whom she divorced and then remarried); today it has 42,000 employees and nearly $12 billion in annual net sales.




Estée Lauder Idealist Skin Refinisher


Estée Lauder Idealist Skin Refinisher

This gem from Estée Lauder does it all – it makes your face feel silky smooth, absorbs oil throughout the day, and gives you that polished appearance that you crave – all with two pumps of Idealist Skin Refinisher.

It’s not a Makeup Primer  – it doesn’t have the typical silicone formulation or feel but it can be used before makeup and it can give you that same flawless look that most primers do. The difference is that it’s not as thick and instantly absorbs in the skin rather than sitting on top. This is a great product to have for those summer months and you could use it on its own to make your skin look pore-free.
