First Impressions – Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation

Did someone say Holy Grail?

This foundation has changed my life!!

Ok maybe not my entire life but it has certainly  has changed the way I think about foundation and my ideas about longwearing and full coverage makeup.

Prior to trying this foundation I classified my Clinique Even Better foundation as full coverage. I was wrong. This is it!

Double wear makeup from Estee Lauder is a best seller for a reason, it has an amazingly wide range of shades available, is easy to use and is incredibly long wearing and full coverage.

If I didn’t have the worst dark circles known to (wo)man I would wear this without concealer, its that good!

This foundation covers spots, hides pores and gives an amazingly airbrushed flawless look to my skin, particularly when applied with my beauty blender. 

It did take some getting used to though. At first I was not used to the coverage and matte finish but after a few uses I became addicted to the way my skin still looked amazing at the end of the day.

We know that this makeup covers all the badies, we know that it lasts and lasts but what I was surprised by was how it actually looked better as the day went on. I found that as my skin started to get a little oily the makeup made me look glowing and radiant (instead of the ususally greaseball look I usually rock by later afternoon)

I really urge to grab a sample pot next time youre in a department store, I got three little pots before I finally decided to purchase and the counter staff were always accommodating to colour match and help me out.

Do you use Double wear? What are your thoughts?

I had a few sample pots and loved it so much I purchased full size. Won't wear it everyday though due to the price :(

    I had so many samples before i plunged! My only justification is that a little goes a long way!

I'm still up in the air about mine. I think it's the colour. I got a yellow toned one to match my neck but my face is pink toned and it looks very white in photos ��

I love love my double wear! I got colour matched in store and it's my perfect shade! I love the coverage for night's out or a big day where I want to look flawless for 10+ hrs! I have a love affair for this stuff! Great post Rosa! Xx
