My thoughts on Estée Lauder's Doublewear Foundation..Sunday, August 07, 2011
I took the plunge on Friday and finally got round to purchasing Estée Lauder Double wear foundation. For what seems like an age, I have been saving my Boots advantage card points up and I decided that my advantage card points should be spent on a luxury item, something that I wouldn't necessarily buy myself. Luckily my local Boots have an Estée Lauder counter, so my points could be spent on a most definite luxury item.
I decided that Double Wear was the foundation for me after seeing so many glowing reviews on many beauty blogs. It had been dubbed a 'miracle foundation' which are the words I like to hear when purchasing a foundation.
- I would disagree with the fact that this gives you a natural finish, this is a foundation that makes you look like you have a lot of make up on. You wouldn't use this if you were opting for the natural look.
- This foundation has a very peculiar smell, it reminds me of poster paints from primary school.
- I find with my skin that it doesn't set till about half an hour after application. Once applied I saw that the scarring on my cheeks could still be seen, however half an hour later the scarring had disappeared.
- This does last a very long time, when I went to bed last night which was 12 hours after applying, my foundation was still in place and there was only a tiny bit of shiny-ness on my nose- pretty impressive in my books.
