My make-up box never has one bottle of foundation. There is at least 2 on the go at all times. Different brands, different shades, some almost empty some pretty much full. Why is this? Because i have never been happy with any foundation i’ve ever brought. I didn’t even think much of MAC which a lot of people raved about. SO just when i thought it was me going mad and i’d have to just stop worrying and settle for just one…i discovered Estee Lauder.
I’d heard a lot about Double Wear foundation and decided to ask for one of the consultants to match me up and possibly give me a tester to try at home. They matched me as 1N2 – Ecru, i told them i prefer my foundation to be a little paler rather than a little darker, as i can always warm it up with bronzer if needs be. Ecru i think is the lightest if not one of the lightest shades.
So i took the foundation home and applied it with a brush. The application feels lovely, so smooth and sinks into my skin really well. I have a lot of uneven skin tone, freckles on my forehead and also some mild acne patches round my cheeks. I have struggled in the past to find a foundation that will cover all of these and actually make my skin appear flawless, but this one…WOW! It’s like some sort of magical illusion, my skin looked absolutely amazing. Flawless, even and healthy. I liked that there wasn’t too much shine, so i didn’t even need powder which i pretty much always use. The staying power is also amazing, it really wont budge all day. Fabulous.
Obviously i ran back to Boots the next day (well not exactly ran, more of a fast paced walk) and grabbed myself a full sized bottle. And to make it even better, i got a free concealer and mascara as there was a promotion on! They too are amazing! (Reviews to come soon).
In the after photo i also have the Double Wear Concealer, Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipstick in Be Bold, elf black cream eyeliner and Collection 2000 Skyscraper mascara.
I’m so so glad i have found a foundation that i love. I can now stick with this one, chuck all my other rubbish out and enjoy my new flawless face thanks to Estee Lauder Double Wear!
