Take it away Estee Lauder....

Heya!! Well when I bought my Double Wear foundation I also bought a really nice makeup remover. That is Estee Lauder Take It Away Total Makeup Remover. This is for all skin types and it will remove all long wearing makeup and mascara products. Is has a very pleasant cucumber scent and is of a creamy lotion consistency.

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

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 Fre
