I can't believe I haven't done a post about the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation yet. This has been my absolutely favorite foundation for years now.
From Estee Lauder:
15-hour staying power. Flawless all day. This worry-free, long-wearing makeup stays fresh and looks natural through heat, humidity & nonstop activity. Won't change color, smudge or come off on clothes. Feels lightweight and comfortable. Now the flawless look you see in the morning is the look you keep all day.
This product comes in a 1oz glass bottle. One negative is the fact that it doesn't have a pump (seriously, why don't all foundations have pumps??). It's not a deal breaker for me though because I love this foundation so much.
Great news however, the MAC Foundation Pump fits perfectly on the bottle. It costs $10 and you can find it anywhere MAC is sold.
When applying this foundation you want to work fast since it dries pretty quickly. I apply it with my fingers and/or a brush when I'm in a rush and that works just fine. When I have a few more minutes I use my beauty blender and that makes this foundation look even more amazing. It really makes my skin look flawless and almost airbrushed (not trying to toot my own horn, I've been told this a few time).
The Double Wear foundation is definitely matte and full coverage it doesn't feel heavy to me. The fact that it's matte might scare aware those with dry skin. I will say that when I get dry in the winter it does cling to my dry patches. Primer and a nice moisturizer help lessen the patchy look.
Let's talk about the staying power of this foundation...it stays put the entire day! I've worn it on the hottest of days and it doesn't budge. I wore it while I was in Barcelona and even though we walked for hours in really hot weather, my foundation always looked perfect. I rarely set this foundation with a powder.
I've tried so many different foundations (Makeup Forever, MAC, Hourglass, etc.) and Double Wear remains my absolute favorite.
I can't recommend the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation enough. It is truly the best foundation.
Have you tried this foundation? What is your favorite foundation?
