Estée Lauder Double Wear | Review

Sunday, 29 October 2017


I’ve yet to find my holy grail foundation and so I’m always on the look out for new products and good product reviews. One foundation that I’ve heard nothing, but good things about is the Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation. I kept meaning to try it and a couple of months ago, I finally got round to buying it. I've never used any  Estée Lauder products before and so I was intrigued to see what the famous Double Wear Foundation would be like.

What do I think about it? 

I have quite an uneven skin tone so I love high coverage foundations as I find they help even out my skin tone and cover up all my blemishes and redness. This foundation is perfect for me as it has a really high coverage, but without feeling really heavy on my skin. What's even better is that you really don't need to use much product to provide a really flawless look and one that will stay in place all day and so I think I'll have this bottle for a while. There's nothing worse than purchasing a more high end foundation and finding that you go through a bottle really quickly.

As I touched on above, this is such a long lasting foundation. Typically, before applying it, I cleanse, use a serum, moisturise and prime and then I find that this is the perfect base for the Estée Lauder Double Wear and it stays in place all day. I've found some foundations oxidise really quickly throughout the day which often leaves my skin looking really patchy, however, the Double Wear provides a flawless look and prevents me from having to top up my make up as the day goes on.

I'm not a massive fan of really thick foundations (which you often find with high coverage foundations), but at the same time I'm not too keen on watery foundations either (I'm hard to please, I know!). However, the Estée Lauder Double Wear is the perfect consistency for me, it's not too runny, but it doesn't feel like I'm plastering it on my face either, it's definitely just right.

I love the premium feel of this packaging. The foundation is in a glass bottle and topped with a gold lid. I love the frosted look to the glass too. My only criticism is that there isn't a pump included which means I have to pour the foundation onto the back of my hand, which isn't ideal as I often end up with excess product on my hand. I wish pumps were included as standard as I think I'm going to have to buy one separately.

At £32 Estée Lauder Double Wear isn't the cheapest foundation available, but for the quality of the product, I think it's really good value for money. Also, it contains SPF 10 which is always handy for someone like me who always burns really easily!

I've been really impressed with Estée Lauder Double Wear and I definitely think it's worthy of all the hype it receives. I don't think many foundations have such a large array of shades as the Estée Lauder Double Wear and so I think it's perfect for so many people. As it is such a high coverage, you do need to ensure that you properly cleanse your face after having worn it as it could clog up pores if you sleep in it. However, this doesn't bother me too much because I always cleanse after taking my make up off anyway.

Have you tried the Estée Lauder Double Wear? I'd love to know your thoughts.
