Double Wear = Can’t Wear

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!

    1. They are good! I’ve done posts about most of the products I’ve mentioned 🙂 The foundation is meant to be amazing, it just didn’t work for me.


  1. This foundation was an absolute nightmare for me! I broke out so bad (I don’t have acne at all, just an occasional breakout) and it took me almost a month to get it cleared up!


  2. This was terrible for me too. I tried different primers with it too and it just wasn’t working for me, gave up. I’m currently using either Make up forever HD or Charlotte Tilbury Magic foundation. I’ve been on such a huge search for foundation, tried a lot and wasted a lot of money lol. But finally those two are my favourite! 😊

    1. I’ll have to give those a look!-Thanks for the recommendations. It’s frustrating as foundation is such a crucial part of the makeup look and this was so expensive!
