Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation review

I have been trying a lot of different foundations over the last few months. I love using foundation and am always on the lookout for something new. I like full coverage foundations that can cover pretty much everything.

I have been using Estee Lauders skincare range on and off for years now, but haven't really tried much of their makeup products. So I just had to try the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation.

Estee Lauder says: 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 colour, 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.

I totally agree with Estee Lauder. The Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation really does everything it says it will. It comes in a frosted glass bottle so you can see how much foundation you have left. The top screws off and you pour the foundation off. I prefer pump bottles so I hope that Estee Lauder can make it with a pump bottle in the future. It also has spf 10 in it which is great.

This foundation is easy to apply and blend. It applies smoothly and evenly on the skin giving the skin a flawless finish, whilst feeling lightweight and not cakey. My shade is Ecru and it is a perfect match for my skin. The coverage is excellent it covers really well particularly my redness and discolouration areas. It really does last all day, after 12 hours it still looks natural and flawless. It definitely stays put and doesn't transfer. I have combination skin with a oily T zone and it does really well at controlling my oils. Some people that have oily skin don't like it, but I would suggest using a primer underneath and a powder to set it. Also you don't need much of this a little is all you need, otherwise it will feel heavy if you use too much.

I would definitely recommend this foundation if you are looking for a full coverage foundation, long lasting and a natural finish. This retails for around $50-$60aud. I usually buy it if there is a gift with purchase at Estee Lauder or online where its cheaper.

Have you tried this foundation? What foundation are you using at the moment?

I've been using Double Wear for years now, and I don't plan to change anything but perhaps the shade!

With my extremely oily skin, I find that using the powder version of the same foundation to do a light dusting can take the shine off. I've looked at my makeup after 13 hours and thought that it would be good for many more hours.

I'm fairly comfortable with pouring some out of the bottle into my hand and using a brush to apply it. The warmth of the hand heating the foundation seems to help it go on more smoothly.
