Estee lauder Double Wear foundation....what a gem!!

Hey y'all,

 Well I have finally decided to purchase a new foundation as I am sick to death of trying every foundation on the market under £10 and none of them giving me the staying power and coverage I want!! I work in a busy cafe and need my makeup to stay where I put it in the morning! Most of the other formula's I have been using have good coverage but they just don't stay decided to splurge on a nice shiny new foundation and chose the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-place makeup and I haven't regretted it!!

This is a creamy, thick foundation but it dries to a semi-matte finish and is OIL FREE!! So those of you who are anything like me and their t-zone gets shinier by the minute when the hotter weather comes in will find this to be a gem on their skin!!

The pros :

  • It has very good coverage.
  • A very small amount goes a long way, so this will last you a very long time. Probably between 4 - 6 months.
  • There is a very big range of shades.
  • Oil Free.
  • WILL stay in place!!
The Cons:

  • The only thing I found bad about it was you can feel it on your skin but I don't mind the feeling of foundation on my face because I know it's still on my skin. Other's may find this a problem. It will be a personal thing.
  • It has no pump but I have heard that a MAC Cosmetics foundation pump fits it very well so I'll have a try at that. 
This foundation retails at £26.50 for 30ml, which for some will be a little steep but it will be worth every penny!!

My shade is 1N1 ECRU. This is a brilliant shade for anyone who wears NW15 studio fix fluid by MAC and
I have found the best way to apply it is with a stipple brush and buff in.

  1. I cannot pay this much for make up,I have before and have always been disappointed but I do like the sound of this,have u tried Revlon colour stay its my all time favourite foundation x

  2. I totally agree..This is a treat for me to spend this much on a foundation. I generally don't like spending a lot on foundations but thought I'd give it a go...It's so far keeping true to its claims lol. Yes I tried Revlon colour stay a few years back and I do remember really liking it, can't remember why I never re-purchased it thought :S. I'll maybe try it again next time I need a new foundation because I really don't have £26 every time I need a foundation lol

  3. I use this foundation everyday and so far i have had the same bottle since August, i will prob get another month out of it. £26 does seem a lot but if you average it out over 8 months, you would only be forking this out twice a year. Deffo a great foundation for staying power and coverage :) Love Love Love it!!
