Hi everyone, welcome to my blog if you are new. Today I want to share with you my experience with the well acclaimed Double Wear Foundation (£31) from Estee Lauder. All over the beauty app Veleza everyone has been raving about this high end foundation, so I’ve been wanting to try it for a while now. When my foundation finished last week, I was excited to go get this in store.
When buying foundation I recommend you get colour matched, I do this every-time as skin tone will change each season. Also, swatching on your hand is not always going to match up to your face. As I’m pale I ended up getting 2CO Cool Vanilla, which looked beautiful on… In store.
Sadly, this foundation has brought me nothing but grief. It goes on incredibly patchy and uneven. Clinging to my upper lip (which is fuzz free, I take care of that!) and emphasising every pore. Surely a primer like Benefit’s Porefessional (£24.50) would do the trick, nope. I’ve even tried the Nivea Men Post Shave Balm (£3.50) and Makeup Revolution’s Ultra Face Base Primer (£5). Nothing will make it go on smooth.
Maybe it was the tools I was using?- Nope. I’ve tried a beauty blender, a flat buffer brush, a round buffer brush and a generic flat brush. I have so many Spectrum brushes and I’ve tried them all! Nothing makes this foundation go on any better.
I am so unbelievably disappointed with this foundation, I have combination skin and look after it so my makeup goes on well. I haven’t experienced a similar problem like this with previous foundations and for the price I am totally POed. I don’t know if I have a faulty product or what, but I’ve contacted customer services. If you saw me in the street you would think I was wearing some old Poundland makeup, it is truly terrible!
Has anyone had a similar experience? Do you love a foundation which you would recommend?- Be sure to leave a comment!
