I thought I might try something different and do a review of a favourite product each Friday (this week it is Saturday, as I came up with the idea very last minute). Each week I will pick a product I have particularly been liking that week or something that I find is just a staple product that I can’t live without.
The first product I have chosen to talk about is the Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation. It’s quite simple really, I love this product. For ages, I just used cheap drugstore foundation like the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation, which I thought was everything – needless to say there was definitely better foundations out there. As I have gotten older I have started to appreciate the fact that taking care of your skin and using more expensive products does really make a difference.
I had heard so many great things about the foundation and I contemplated getting it for a long time. I even went to get colour matched but I wasn’t happy with the way it looked on my skin (but I concluded that that was because of the way the lady applied it to my face). I went away still unsure as to whether I should buy it or not. One day I just thought you know what I am going to go and get it and apply it how I would at home and hope for the best. So that is what I did and I am so glad I did.
I got the colour 2N1 Desert Beige, which was a perfect match. I applied it like I usually do with foundation. I apply a bit to the back of my hand and blend it out with a damp sponge. The finish it gives is amazing, not too matte and not too shiny. Just a really nice glow! A little also goes a long way so I find that I use much less foundation than I do with others. Might I also add it lasts for such a long time and the coverage is medium/full and easily buildable. I’m not going to lie and say I haven’t slept in it a few times but honestly, when I wake up my skin is still almost flawless (until the next day when I break out because I slept with my makeup on, but that is my wrong doing of course).
Let me know in the comments what your favourite foundation is!
