This is the most amazing foundation i have ever tried. Recently i have been on the hunt to find a new foundation to suit my skin and one that is durable throughout the day. I’ve tried a few drug stores like maybelline and witch but they just down quite do it for me. I used to swear by the no7 beautifully matt foundation however my mum started to notice how the colour wasn’t matching my neck therefore i had a line. I really HATE having a foundation line, it bugs me so much. So i went back and got my colour re tested and it came back with the same colour – calico. So this is where my hunt started, i never thought i would fall for a high end foundation, i always thought whats the point? it only costs so much more, what could it possibly do that is better?
Well, i was so wrong. I have been using this foundation for a few weeks now and i love it. It glides beautifully on your skin and stays on throughout the day – exactly what i was looking for. I went into boots where a lovely lady sat me down to do a colour test. we swatched some shades on my neck and looked at what colour suited me best, she gave me two samples and told me to use both and see which tone i preferred more, one was more pale and one was a little more tanned but both shades suited the colour of my neck fine. she told me it was totally what i preferred in the light. I took these samples home and they lasted me about 2 and a half weeks… which was brilliant a little goes a long way.
This foundation is quite pricey however you only need a little and it last ages as i found with the samples. So purchased the full size product which costs £31. I can assure you this is no normal foundation it claims to be non transferring, suitable for all skin types, 15 hours staying power, non colour changing or smudging, flawless no matter what heat or humidity, light weight and comfortable. Now that is a lot to live up to. I would say that i agree with everything they claim (apart from 15 hours staying power because i haven’t worn it for that period of time) because this foundation feels and looks flawless all day long. The thing i am most impressed with is the fact that it doesn’t transfer on to clothes. The semi – matt finish makes your skin look so natural but at the same time evens out all the unwanted oil from your pores. Its a medium coverage that is very buildable. It has spf 10 to protect your skin in the sun. With 44 shades to choose from your sure to find the shade which is perfect for you, i wear the shade 1co shell, this suits my skin absolutely amazing.
So this is an honest review of what i thought of the Estée Lauder double wear foundation. Hope you enjoyed reading! don’t forget to like and comment below.
