Happy Friday beauties,
I wanted to touch briefly on one of my all time favourite foundations, the Estee Lauder Double wear. The importance of having a great base is that it gives your makeup an impeccable finish.
This foundation claims to have a staying power of 15 hrs, with a natural finish. It is lightweight and has a comfortable feel, and will withstand heat and humidity. It also won’t clog the pores, smudge or change colour.
My thoughts, as i’ve been using this foundation for a few years, i think i’ll be able to give my honest opinion. The coverage is superb, you can go from medium to full. It blends in very easily and evenly into the skin as mentioned above, giving a beautiful finish. It does last a very long time, without needing to touch up. Perfect for oily skin that may have blemishes, as it does manage to cover up those imperfections very well. It has SPF 10 so it surely will protect your skin whilst wearing it.
They have a wide variety of shades to suit every skin tone. I’d say it’s a bit on the pricey side, £31 but worth it. I’ve never bothered to repurchase any other foundations but i did with Estee Lauder, because it works so well for my type of skin. It is basically everything i look for in a foundation. The only con is that it doesn’t have a pump, which makes for a messy job, as you’ll either have to pour the product onto a brush,sponge, the back of you hand or a spatula, which maybe hard to contain sometimes!
What i’ve done is applied my foundation, a few small drops, use my flat top brush to buff the product into my skin, making sure that the neck and hair line are not left out. Then i used my Mac mineralise skinfinish powder in dark deep to set the foundation in place, as i have oily skin and setting the foundation will make it stay put! I’m wearing the shade Sandalwood, which is a perfect match especially in the Fall or Winter months, not so much for Summer as that’s the time i get a bit darker, so i’d have to mix a little drop of a darker foundation with Sandalwood to achieve my shade.
Overall i give this Estee Lauder Double wear foundation a huge thumbs up! Have you used this foundation before? If you have, what are your thoughts?
Love, Shaunz xo
