I did a haul post not long ago on a few things I brought on a little shopping trip I went on with my mu to Cheshire Oaks. I decided to do a little review on this in particular, not just because it was requested I do so but because I have fell in love with it.
This is the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation, and it is a matte finish long wearing foundation. I have been seeing alot of peope say they use this and I was really interested in trying it out and I'm so happy I did. I am not usually one for matte foundations as I have very dry skin however the finish of this foundation is so beautiful. It is really comfortable on the skin and I love that it is a matte finish but not drying at all. It applys very evenly with any tool I have used for example my Beauty Blender, Real Techniques Expert Face Brush or a flat paddle foundation brush. I would say this is a medium to full coverage foundation. You could easily mix this with a moisturiser to sheer it out and also build it up to a full coverage without it looking cakey on the skin.
Hence the name 'Double Wear', this is a very long wearing foundation I find it sits very well without moving all day and its perfect for nights out as it does not budge. I personally don't have to set this with a finishig powder however I have a couple of times and it does not effect the finish of the foundation. My cream and powder products blend very well over the top and also last very well all day and night. You can apply a luminising product with this if you did want a more dewy effect but with the long lasting finish.
I dont find I have to touch up my makeup at all when I use this foundation. It has such a beautiful finish and even though it is matte, I thinks its suitable for any skin types. A little goes a very long way with this product, and it creates such a flawless finish. The only thing I would improve is adding a pump applicator but, that is all. I have used this in alot of my makeup posts lately and I will leave the links to them below for you to read.
