Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

This foundation is heaven. Retailing for $42 per 1 fl/oz it is easy to see why it is such a loved product. Boasting an impressive 55 shades, this oil-free makeup doesn’t stop until you are ready. It will literally go all day and all night without moving. The formula is on the thicker side, and you do have to work quickly when you apply the product as the dry down time is fast.

Those with dry skin make sure you exfoliate and moisturize to avoid enhancing any texture or dryness. If you have oily skin, this could become your holy grail product. No slipping, no shine. I wore this in a hot tub, in the shower and it still looked perfect. How many products can say that after 14 hours?

When it comes to a big day at the office, a day full of sports or a night out this foundation isn’t playing around, it works and never fails. I am a huge fan, and I would recommend it to everyone. Unlike some foundations on the market, this product is inclusive for deep skin tones.

If I had any complaint about this product, it would be the lack of a pump dispenser. Use a light touch, or you can end up looking cakey. When you decide to remove this product you are going to need a proper makeup remover, this formula is meant to stay put, and a plain old makeup wipe isn’t going to cut it.  Try it, you won’t be disappointed.

As described on the Estee Lauder website:

Over 55 shades. 24-hour staying power. Our #1 foundation worldwide.
