Is it just me or is finding the perfect foundation the hardest task ever? I have tried so many foundations over the year, I’ve fallen in love with many and I’ve fallen out of love with many too.
When I’ve found a product I love the formula either changes, it gets discontinued or my skin just decides to throw a tantrum and decide it’s no longer compatible with the foundation. The latter is what happened recently so off I went again, on the hunt for the perfect foundation.
I had heard sooo many amazing things about the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation but had never got round to trying it…until now!
I always go for medium coverage which is buildable for day or night which is something that attracted me to this foundation. That, and the fact that it claims to have a 24-hour lasting power.
It’s been two months since I’ve been using the Double Wear foundation now and I’m still yet to decide if it’s going to be my forever foundation but my feelings have definitely been positive. When Estee Lauder claimed that the Double Wear had the power to last 24 hours, they weren’t kidding. You know when you get to the end of a long day and remove your make-up and the foundation is pretty much non-existent? It’s the opposite with this product. In fact, I’m pretty sure there’s still as much left on as when I put it on that morning.
Another thing that I love is that a little really does go a long way. I don’t like heavy coverage with my make-up, it just doesn’t suit me, and at first I just couldn’t get on with this foundation as it seemed so heavy. It turns out, I was just putting too much on. I know, I know, you’re wondering how I didn’t realise sooner? I was literally putting on a normal amount but as soon as I reduced this it was the perfect finish.
The only small downside to this foundation is that it can leave my skin feeling quite dry so moisturising before you put it on is so important. I think the reason it feels so dry is because it is designed to last a long time and therefore needs to be. To me, this is a small price to pay for a long lasting foundation!
