I want to recommend to you all my favourite foundation – Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place. Words can not describe how amazing this foundation is.
Estee Lauder Double Wear is said to stay on your face for 24 hours and leave your face looking flawless and natural through heat, humidity and nonstop activity (Estee Lauder, 2018) . It is said to feel lightweight and comfortable where it doesn’t smudge or come off (Estee Lauder, 2018). This product comes in 61 different shades and is suitable for all skin types. It is said to be suitable for everyone of all ages and it includes SPF 10 (Estee Lauder, 2018).
I started to use this foundation around 18 months ago replacing it with MAC studio fix. For this foundation I would only need to use a small amount after applying my Estee Lauder Illuminator primer, my Estee Lauder Double Wear Custom Coverage Correcting Duo and my Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Flawless Wear Concealer. I currently apply the foundation with a Real Techniques Miracle Sculpting Sponge but have done previously with a Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. The shade I use is Ecru which is a perfect match to my skin tone. But I use Rattan when I am wearing fake tan and also mix a little bit in with Ecru when I want a little bit of colour to my pale face. The lovely people who work at Estee Lauder in Roomes Upminster are experts who will truthfully match your foundation shade to your skin tone as well as give you advice on how to apply the foundation.
When wearing this foundation it feels and looks amazing. Its lightweight texture feels like I am not wearing any foundation and it covers my blemishes very well naturally. This foundation literally does stay on your face for the whole day whatever the weather and how busy your day is unlike the MAC studio fix. Whenever I wore MAC studio fix to a 12 hour day at work the foundation would come off (especially in the summer). This is not the case with Estee Lauder. I wear the foundation to work, whenever I got the chance to on holiday and every time I go out socialising and it didn’t come off once.
I know for a fact that this foundation is suited to all skin types due to my experiences. I have had oily/combination skin, acne prone skin, sensitive and dry skin due to taking Roaccutane where my skin has always looked flawless due to wearing this foundation. When I had acne prone skin this foundation in addition to applying Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Flawless Wear Concealer would cover my pimples and acne. I had suffered from cystic acne early this year and some people had even told me that they didn’t realise I suffered until I had told them!
When I had oily/combination skin for years this foundation would not create any horrible, shiny, greasy parts like it would in other foundations I have used. It also didn’t smudge or come off at the start or end of the day. My skin felt smooth and non greasy as well.
While I was on Roaccutane I developed very dry skin where wearing this foundation didn’t make my face cakey at all! But with any foundation it will when you apply too much product on your face so it is important to use a small amount. I would also advise as well not to apply any setting spray as you do not need it!
My mum who is in her 50s wears this foundation as well and loves it! She has mature skin and it works well making her look younger. I currently have normal and sensitive skin where I still love how flawless this foundation is. This foundation does not react to my skin due to it being sensitive.
Overall I would recommend this foundation to everyone with all skin types and tones. The only con would be the price as £33.50 is expensive but I personally think that it is so worth it as I feel that it ticks all of the boxes!
