One question I always see getting asked in the #bbloggers chat on Twitter is
Can somebody recommend a good full coverage foundation?
and I always reply with, 'Estee Lauder Double Wear'
So I decided it was time to do a post about the product I am constantly raving about
This is my ultimate holy grail foundation
I have been wearing it for years now and although it is by no means the only foundation I use
(My stash of liquid foundations is verging on ridiculous)
It is the one I ALWAYS repurchase
This is the foundation I will always turn to if I have a big night out or special occasion
as the finish is absolutely flawless and the staying power is the best I have ever used
The best way I have found of applying it is with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush
These two are a dream combination for a flawless face
I suffer with redness across my cheeks and this foundation is great at completely covering my problem areas with minimal need for concealer.
If you have tried Rimmel wake me up foundation I would say they are comparable coverage wise.
Although Double Wear has much better staying power and gives far more matte appearance
Sometimes the 'glow' from Wake Me Up can leave me looking a little shiny.
I wear the shade 3N1 Ivory Beige which is a perfect match for my skintone
and from what I have seen they have a good range of colours.
You can head down to your nearest Estee Lauder counter for a colour match
The only negative about this foundation is that it has no pump dispenser
but I have found that the MAC foundation pump fits the bottle perfectly
You can pick one of these up online or in your nearest MAC for £4
It would take a pretty major contender to get me to sway from my beloved Double Wear
but if you know of anything that lives up to it with a similar coverage please let me know :)
Have you tried Double Wear before?
Are you going to give it a go now?
