A few weeks ago during a particularly wet, boring lunch break, I found myself in the CCO that just so happens to be perilously close to the office...I went in for a browse, I came out with Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Foundation.
Now that I've filled you in on the gripping back story, I shall begin.
This may strike you as an odd review, but in all honesty, I really don't know whether I like this product, or absolutely loath it.
I've always been put off trying Double Wear simply because I don't need such high coverage foundation and I've heard plenty of gripes about how tricky it is to apply. This for me, is where this foundation falls down as well. This may be the Double Wear Light, but I still cannot work out the best method of application!
Flat Foundation Brush
Duo Fibre Brushes (MAC 187/130)
Round Top Kabuki
Nothing seems to give me flawless application, it just sits on the skin and looks too obvious.
I do find that the lasting power of this is wonderful, it requires a tiny amount of powder to set and doesn't budge all day (7:30am - 6pm). That's pretty good going.
If I can just solve the application issue, I could really grow to love this foundation.
(RRP £25.50 - If you can get to a CCO they have them for £18.00 at the moment)
Mixing with a little strobe cream gives a much slicker application!
