Estee Lauder Double Wear | Review

Surprise, surprise... I've fallen in love with yet another foundation!

I am always on the look out for products to try and I love getting recommendations from people. After hearing plenty of great things about Estee Lauder's Double Wear foundation I had to give it a go. So, off I toddled to the lovely lady who works at the counter in the Boots store I work in. She gave me a colour match and instantly knew my shade and gave me a sample to try it out. Let's just put it this way, I wore it once and bought it the following day. *love heart emoji*

If you don't like full coverage and want a light weight foundation then this isn't the one for you. Alternatively, if you're like me and love a full coverage then this needs to be on the top of your wish list! The consistency of the foundation is a lot thicker than one I've ever used before but is certainly not a downfall of the product as it gives me a full coverage and flawless base without looking caked-on. They have an amazing range of shades to choose from including neutral, warm and cool tones which makes getting that perfect match even easier.

I have normal to oily skin with my t-zone being the problem area often leaving me with patchy make up not even half way through the day where it has rubbed off or I just look like an absolute grease ball! However, even without using my setting spray I have none of these problems with Double Wear and have had many compliments on my flawless base since using it. I couldn't recommend this foundation enough and it really has set the standard high for when I potentially look for foundations to try out in the future but I love this foundation so much I can't see myself looking for one to replace it with!

The bottle and packaging is classy and definitely looks and feels like a premium product especially with the glass bottle. I was a bit gutted, however, when I found out it didn't have a pump or any other application tool. With my first few uses of using the foundation I found I was wasting a lot of product as I'm so used to pumps on all the products I've used before however I now know the amount I need to pour out so don't tend to waste any now but it does take a bit of getting used too.

Estee Lauder's Double Wear foundation retails at £30 which I would personally say is a reasonable amount for a premium brand and if you're on a budget it is 100% worth saving and spending those few extra pennies!
