I have been postponing this review which I really wanted to do a long time ago. But today I was determined to get over with it and finally I am ready to review the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation, which I have been using for about a year!! Crazy eh! 😀
About The Looks!
The foundation comes in a transparent glass bottle with a gold cap on it. The bottle is not very big and is rectangular in shape. It has the name of the brand and the product in front and rest of the information at the back side of the ink blue box which it comes packed in, the print is in gold. The packaging is quite classy and chic. It is sturdy and strong, but I still am careful handling it since its a glass bottle.

Net Content – 30 ml or 1 FL. OZ.

My experience and views on the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation!
Well, at first I struggled to get this one work right for me, but now it has become my Holy Grail foundation! The shade matches perfectly to my skin tone and doesn’t look ashy. Thanks to the neutral to yellow undertones in the shade Sand. Next is the texture, it is a little on the thicker side and dries out very quickly. So you would need to work really fast in blending it out so that it doesn’t look patchy. But once its blended well, it looks flawless! It covers up everything! All the pigmentation, dark spots, etc. Another good thing is that it contains SPF 10, which is not really much but will still give you some amount of sun protection. Technique wise I love using kabuki brushes for better results and I get the best result by using Sigma 3DHD Kabuki brush.
The finish of this foundation is absolutely matte! It shows no shine or greasiness even after hours. Even on humid days, you might sweat but you won’t look shiny. It is amazing for people who have combination and oily skin. Lasting power is super amazing! It stays put all day long!! Quite literally! I have worn it for maximum of 9 – 10 hours in family events and it was intact all the time! Even after hours of wear it won’t move at all, it acts like a layer on the skin keeps the oil inside and even with sweat or water it does not melt off. Even with all this going on, its very light on the skin. You don’t feel caked up or heavy on the face. You do feel you have put some makeup on, but feels and looks natural.
I love this foundation!! It is surely one of the best foundations for my combination skin. High coverage, very long lasting and with matte finish! What else one wants!! I would highly recommend this to everyone with combination and oily skin!
