Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation | Review


If you have been following my blog lately you would know that I am not a huge lover of changing up my foundation routine. Once I find something and I love it I will stick with it and so branching out and trying a new foundation has been a huge step. After seeing the review of this foundation by Danielle Mansutti I was already hooked, this combined with the fact that the price has dropped from around $70 to $50 pushed me to pick it up; and I am not disappointed in the slightest. 

This foundation is very different to my coveted NARS Sheer Glow particularly in terms of its finish and consistency. Double Wear has a relatively thick consistency with a semi matte finish. Because of this the foundation lasts much longer particularly through hot days and decreases those horrid 'smile lines' even after long periods of time. I put this foundation on in the morning and by night it was pretty much exactly the same after one or two touch ups with powder. The thickness of the foundation also decreases my skin from getting as oily in my T Zone which is absolutely amazing for nights out and as a plus it has not broken me out.
Estée Lauder Double Wear has incredible coverage and only requires one layer for a perfect flawless finish on the skin. I was concerned at the beginning that the foundation would feel very caky and heavy on my skin due to the thickness however this wasn't the case in fact it is quite lightweight however not as much as NARS. 

There is only one problem I have with Double Wear and that is the colour range. I have very pale skin and so I automatically had to pick up the lightest shade in Cool Bone without being colour matched however it is still slightly too dark and I have to blend it a lot down my neck. However, once blended it is almost perfect.
I think for how incredible this foundation is the cost is well worth it and I definitely recommend picking it up particularly if you have oily or oily-combination skin or just have that troubling T zone. Let me know if you have tried this amazing foundation or have any questions.

    Nikoleta, xoxo.

  2. I need to try this foundation as I've heard so many amazing things, I just hope it sits well on my dry cheeks because I'm sure my oily t-zone will love it x

    Beauty with charm

  3. This used to be my favourite foundation ever but then I realised it made me break out & the more I broke out the more I used it for the high coverage haha! It does just look amazing on though x

  4. I also use Nars Sheer glow and this foundation looks great! Such a shame about the colour range as it is most likely too dark for me :(

  5. I've just purchased this foundation. I'm picking up tomorrow and can't wait to try it out! Thanks for the review! :))


  6. I love this foundation! It really holds up well during long photo shoots. I agree, the shade selection can be expanded. I have to mix two of them to get one that matches my skin.

    Fab review!

  7. I will definitely put this on my wishlist! Last week I bought NARS Sheer Glow which is my very first high end foundation - it hasn't caused a single breakout. Due to my oily skin it does start to look a bit unpleasant so it seems like Double Wear might be a better option for me. Thanks for this post xx
