Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

What It Says On The Box:

”15-hour staying power. Flawless all day. This worry-free, long-wearing makeup stays fresh and looks natural through heat, humidity, nonstop activity.

Won’t change color, smudge or come off on clothes. Feels lightweight and comfortable.

Now the flawless look you see in the morning is the look you keep all day.”

In My Opinion:

This is a medium to full coverage foundation that feels lightweight. I almost forget I have anything on! It is so easy to work with due to it’s quick drying nature but you still have plenty of time to work it into your skin. This helps to speed up my application process as I don’t want to wait a long time before applying powder and the rest of my face.

I like to build this up to a full coverage for a flawless complexion giving my more red areas a second coat. if you’re after a more natural look I would go with one coat for a more medium coverage.

The finish it definitely flawless and matte.

I 100% agree that it is long lasting, the colour doesn’t change and it does not budge or smudge onto clothes.

The few downsides I have noticed are that if you have extremely dry skin or dry patches this foundation will stick to these places so if you have dry skin maybe ask for a sample before buying. I find that mosturising helps me if I do have any dry patches.

Another downside is the colour availability. I’m Irish but have since moved to Australia. My favourite colour Shell is not available here but I have been matched to a new shade which I do like just not as much.

Tips for Application:

I personally find that mosturising and priming before application works best. I switch up my mosturisers a lot but I’m currently using the Estee Lauder Day Wear moisturiser. The primer I’m currently using is my favourite Smashbox Photo Finish.

I have used a number of different types of brushes and applicators but for me the beauty blender is best. I slightly damp the blender and apply the product to my face. It is easy to buff and blend for a quick application.
