Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation Review

6 October 2014
Being a student and all that I try to keep the splurging to a minimum but when I saw the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation on a blog sale a while back (and in my incredibly pale shade) I knew I'd be silly not to purchase it and boy am I glad I did. There was so much hype surrounding this as thee full coverage foundation and for the days I'm having troublesome skin or I know I'll not be able to touch up through the day as such, this is my go to, its full coverage & fool proof!  

the quicker my cameras fixed the better, these grainy images are stressing me 
If you've read my blog you'll know I'm as pale as can be, its not really the best thing and therefore when buying foundation I'm always faced with the dilemma of 'Is the palest shade pale enough?'. Luckily Estee Lauder are on the ball and this is the perfect shade for me, if anything its slightly paler than my summer skin tone but I think for the quickly approaching winter months it'll be just what I need. I have the shade '1C0 Shell' which is for those with pinky undertones but theres an excellent range of shades for those with pink, yellow and neutral undertones, catering for everyone.

This is probably the fullest coverage foundation I've ever used and I was worried about it being too thick or cakey but this isn't the case at all, when applied to the skin it feels so lightweight, the only thing is it dries so quickly so your best bet is applying it in sections and blending it in as quickly as you can, I use my Real Techniques buffing brush or my Real Techniques expert face brush, both work wonderfully and the finish is amazing - it looks natural, radiant and covers all blemishes that I'm trying to hide, everything that I need and want in a foundation.

 Its classed as 'stay in place makeup and can last up to 15 hours', now normally with claims like this I'm a bit sceptical but on a trip during the summer I applied it at 5am and it lasted until 10pm that night and all I'd done was lightly powder once through the afternoon and it still looked flawless, I was seriously impressed, no other foundations have managed to last that long on me! Before using this however I actually make sure I exfoliate or moisturise as I had read reviews saying it could be drying but I haven't experienced this at all and I couldn't praise the foundation enough. It also looks gorgeous, the gold packaging and glass bottle makes it look sleek & sophisticated and with an SPF of 10 it could come in handy throughout the summer months, if you like the full face look all year round. 

The only downside is it doesn't have a pump, so you sort of have to pour it out which can be quite wasteful but the MAC foundation pump apparantly fits the bottle so I might just have to purchase one to make life easier but when this runs out I will definitely repurchase, its well worth its price tag. I love it! 

Thanks for reading, Jenny xo

  2. I had an Estee Lauder make-over a few weeks ago, and I loved how luxurious their products felt on my skin! I'm glad this lived up to its claims for you, I might have to start saving up some pennies!

    1. I completely forgot it was on the sidebar but thank you for having a read (: Its blooming amazing, I've just used google money converter to see how much that is here, it's cheaper anyways. I think if googles doing this right, we would pay $43 ish? so a little pricey but worth it x
