Estee Lauder Double Wear Light

Hey Lovelies,

Last month I decided to be adventurous and try a new foundation. Foundation is not something I change often, as I have sensitive skin so once I find something that works for me I just stick with it, why fix something that isn't broke ;)! However I just felt my Chanel Vitalumiere aqua was not enough coverage for the winter, and wanted something with more coverage. Now I will never buy a full coverage foundation, I have had Mac's studio fix and face & body foundation and have found both of those too heavy for my skin and made me look cakey.  After some research I thought I would try the Estee Lauder Double Wear Light foundation.

When I bought this foundation the SA was really unhelpful, when I asked if it was the same coverage as the Chanel Vitalumiere aqua I got the response 'that is a Vitalumiere foundation' ahh thanks Sherlock! Anyway for the first week I found this foundation felt quite sticky when applying it but that could be down to the fact I wasn't used to having more coverage. To me I feel this foundation is a medium coverage rather than a light, and it does last me through out the day, by the end of a 10 hour day my skin still looks covered and flawless. Also as vain as it may seem this foundation looks great in photos, a flash of a camera doesn't reflect off it to give you a dreaded white face. I didn't think I would like anything more than my Chanel foundation but I really like this foundation, and recommend checking it out if you're looking more a medium coverage foundation.

It costs £26.50 and you can check it out here. I'm the colour Intensity 2.0

  1. I have used the normal double wear foundation and really like it, but recently have been after a lighter coverage. I will check this one out. x

  2. It is really good coverage :) x

  3. I've been wanting to try this for a while but I think the Intensity 1 will be too dark for me! :( Great review xx
