Estée Lauder Double Wear | #FoundationFiles

This is probably one of the most talked about foundations on the market and in actual fact the UK's best selling foundation - so why's it taken me so long to try it? I have no idea! 



When it comes to foundation I definitely like it to be long lasting/full coverage and Estée Lauder's Double Wear is just that. After using it on and off for the last month or so, it's time to tell you what I think.  

The coverage is incredible it honestly conceals everything which I like, but also somehow dislike. I'll explain. It makes the skin look flawless, almost photoshopped which is awesome but it sort of lacks realness. I mean I love the full on look for a night out but on a day to day basis I think it's a little too much. For a lighter coverage you can always mix in a moisturiser or add a ton of highlight to give that base radiance but it's generally quite a matte finish foundation. I personally prefer my foundations to be a little more dewy on the skin but for the days I want a matte base this is ideal.

I surprisingly like the consistency of this foundation, it's fluid and the best way to apply it is with your hands - there's something about the warmth from your fingers that makes this product almost melt into the skin. The finish is smooth, velvety and when I say this foundation stays put all day that is no exaggeration. I actually applied this before I did an intense workout (Don't ask!?) but I seriously sweat it out but my base? Did NOT budge! Amaze




Have any of you tried this? What are your thoughts?

  1. Great review! I love this foundation, it's my holy grail product. I'm suffering from a serious acne scarring/hyperpigmentation and with this foundation I can be sure that no imperfections will be visible. I also love the fact that it doesnt break me out.

  2. I love this foundation (it's my HG) -- I have six bottles. It is one of the few foundations that matches my medium-tan olive complexion perfectly. When I want a complete doll like/photoshop/flawless finish I mix it with Becca's Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme foundation, which on its own contains even more pigmentation but lasts a little less. However, mixed together -- in conjunction with the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer -- it is a dream! What shade are you in ELDW?

  3. Interesting to hear your thoughts on this foundation. I love the double wear concealer but have never tried the foundation. I was always afraid that it'd be just too heavy for me. x
