Review: Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation.
I’ve heard mixed reviews about this foundation, especially regarding the “ghost face” it apparently gives due to the SPF, but I’ve never experienced this (I’m pale anyway so I suppose it doesn’t matter).Double Wear is a “stay in place” foundation which is lightweight, provides a natural finish and lasts up to 12 hours. I think this is the perfect description for this product, it provides excellent coverage without looking too heavy (providing you buff it in well) and lasts all day without transferring or separating.
I don’t require a top up during the day, although as my skin is a little on the oily side, I usually add a touch of powder to my T-Zone.This has been my perfect foundation over the last few months and I’ve recently purchased another bottle. It’s perfect for me in terms of coverage, lasting power and finish and I’m yet to find something that works for me better than this. My skin hasn’t been great recently but this foundation really covers all without looking like a mask. I love the natural finish that it gives which is slightly more matte while still looking flawless.
I am shade 1N1 (Ecru) but I recommend that you get matched up. I’ve been using this since January and my first bottle is almost empty (I think, I can’t tell how much is in there which is annoying but it’s feeling lighter) and that’s after a fair bit spilt in my makeup bag, so it does last quite some time as I wear this every day. I apply it with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush and buff it in well to give a flawless base.
Overall, this is the perfect foundation if you like medium to full coverage which stays all day. You only need a small amount and buffed in it creates a natural base which lasts all day.
What are your thoughts on this foundation?
