Review - Estee Lauder Double Wear

Hey guys, 

I recently took a trip to Edinburgh, and, as I have almost used up all of my Nars Sheer Glow (sad face), I decided to go and buy some new foundation. Due to this, I took a trip to Harvey Nicholls and proceeded to browse the make up counters. However, as some of you may know, I'm trying to stop buying the same products over and over again. Therefore, as I have heard many raving reviews about this product, I thought that I would give it a try. 

Estee Lauder is a brand that I have never tried before, so I was a bit wary of what it was going to be like, as in, would it suit my skin, would it blend, would it be an every day foundation? The answer to all these questions is yes! The shade, which in my case is Shell (this is the palest shade that they do in Double Wear), matched my skin tone perfectly. To be honest, it's the first foundation that I have found that matches my skin tone; you can't really tell that I'm wearing much make up. However, it gives a great coverage, and covers any blemishes without looking like you are caked in make up. 

As I am especially wary with foundation, as I have sensitive skin, I thought I had better check it out and ask what skin type it was ideal for. However, when I went to the Estee Lauder counter, the shop assistant was so lovely, and they were actually doing an offer where you can get a free sample of Double Wear along with the Illuminating Perfecting Primer, which had 10 applications worth of product. Therefore, I got to try it before I purchased it, and instantly fell in love. Also, in my opinion, it rivals Nars Sheer Glow in its lasting power and is SPF 10, so protects your skin as well.

Overall, I would recommend this if you want a medium/high coverage foundation, as you can easily build it up, and it lasts all day! 

What's your favourite foundation, and what beauty products have you been loving recently?

Much love,

    1. Thank you, and I love them both too! I feel they are the two best foundations I've ever tried :)

  2. My Nars foundation is running out and I'm so undecided on whether to re purchase or try something new! I think il have to get a sample of this one though!
    Enjoyed reading this post! Steph xo

    1. Thank you! I'd definitely recommend trying it, but I do love Nars Sheer Glow as well! Yeah, I'd try a sample and see how you like it, as Nars is a lot more dewy, whereas I feel Estée Lauder has a bit more of a matte finish :) it's still dewy, I just feel like I don't need as much powder with the Estée Lauder foundation x
