Estée Lauder have released a new version of their Double Wear Foundation. This new version is called “Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Foundation”.
I first used this foundation the day after I purchased it from John Lewis in Newcastle upon Tyne and was pleasantly surprised. I wasn’t expecting a lot from the foundation apart from the long wearing aspect as everyone knows how the original double wear foundation is long-lasting. This foundation lasted all day (I wore it from 10.30 am until I went to bed). The way they colour match is very similar to the way No. 7 colour match. They use a device which they place against your forehead, cheek and chin and it will colour match you sometimes even between colours (I was colour matched between Bone and Cool Bone and decided to go with Bone as it was closer to the colour of my neck).
I have found in the past that some long wearing foundations irritate my skin but this feels so light it is like you are not wearing any foundation at all. The only issue I have, and it is a minor one, is that it does not come with a pump. This would be extremely useful as it is a very liquidy foundation. If you do buy the foundation I would strongly advise you to buy a separate pump.
As I work in an office during the week make up usually lasts until lunchtime and I will have to touch up. However with this foundation it doesn’t breakdown and it definitely lasts all day!
If you are looking for a new lightweight, long-lasting foundation and have the money to spend on a high end foundation (this foundation costs £32.00) you cannot go wrong with Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation.
Here are some pictures of the product.
This foundation can be purchased at any department store that sells Estée Lauder such as John Lewis, Debenhams or Fenwicks.
If you want a light coverage I would suggest using a damp beauty sponge. However, if you are wanting a medium coverage I would suggest using a foundation or buffing brush. Personally, I prefer a light coverage during the day so I always apply the foundation with the damp beauty sponge.
I hope you like this blog and find the tips and review useful.
See you soon peeps!
