Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in 2C3 'Fresco'

A little while back my friend and I went on a road trip to Bicester Village outlet shopping
Whilst browsing the Cosmetics Company Outlet (beauty bloggers heaven!) I saw a display of the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation
I knew that there were a few shades being continued and assumed that the shades available were those being phased out but on looking at the Boots website the shade I matched is still available
In the outlet it was only £19.00 a bottle and seeing as I'd been wanting to try it out for so long of course I bought one
I love full coverage foundations as my skin isn't the greatest and I also have quite an uneven skintone, having heard that this particular foundation has exceedingly high coverage I knew it was one to try
Once I got home I couldn't wait to try it out
The shade I picked up was the perfect match to my skin colouring, infact I now wish I'd picked up another bottle at only £19!
The coverage is just what I like in a foundation but it doesn't feel too heavy on the skin as a thin layer gives the opacity I liked
Al though it is easy to go too heavy handed and end up with a thick layer on the skin, especially if your not used to a foundation with such high coverage.
It also lasts fantistically well with very little transfer
I use Clarins Beauty Flash Balm underneath this and it lasts throughout the work day and can carry me into any evening activity, albeit with a touch up of powder to eliminate any shine from the work day

Overall I would definitely say I am converted to this foundation
It is worth the hype, and completely deserves all the positive press!
Al though now I think the corresponding concealer may have to be purchased too

Have you tried the infamous Double Wear?

    1. Definitely give it a go! I love it :) xx

  2. I'd been a little frightened of double wear for having such high coverage, but it looks glowy and lovely - most importantly even and subtle on you!

    May have to sample some!

    1. I use the Real Techniques buffing brush to apply and it does a fantastic job of making it look even. You can layer it up for heavy coverage but a thin layer is all you really need if you don't want it too heavy :) xx
