Struggling to find my perfect foundation since my skin changed last year I had heard good and bad things about Estee Lauder Double Wear and decided to get myself a trial. At £27.50 I would hate to purchase a bottle and dislike it so a sample in store seemed the best way for me to properly test this out. I have really oily skin and don't like anything to heavy on my face so I will admit, I was worried to try it but I can honestly say I have found my perfect foundation!! Well at least my perfect foundation of the moment, who knows what the future holds! Ha!
Let me first go through the things I love about double wear;
This lasts for hours and hours and hours on my oily skin, with powder after a certain point but still, nothing else I have ever used has the staying power like this.
Without being too heavy this provides me with the perfect medium to full coverage, so much that I very rarely have to use concealer and since I have acne scars and blemished skin this is an amazing ask!
Before purchasing I had heard that this was awful to apply as it dries to quickly but for me, I didn't have this problem. I apply my foundation with a flat bottom brush and do small sections at a time so maybe this is why I didn't come across this problem.
My skin always looks flawless when I use this. It's a matte finish which is ideal for me and my oily skin. As you can see my scarring is red but double wear covers it all up nicely!
I am shade Pure Beige 77 and I was matched in store. I was worried when I first applied this as it did look at lot darker than any of my other foundations but I got used to it and now if I put on another foundation in a lighter shade I feel it's far to pale, I now much prefer the slighter warmer tone of this, especially when I have fake tanned, it matches perfectly. I purchased this in December and I am finding the past few days I need to wait a bit longer for this to come out the bottle so I think I am nearing the end but for 4 months everyday use, I am happy with this.
Like every other person who uses this foundation the only flaw I have is the fact there is no pump! Just now I have to pour it onto the back of my hand and this usually means a bit of waste but given the fact that I love it, I will let this little flaw slide for now!
