Holy grail foundation
Pros: long wearing foundation that helps keep shine at bay. The coloring matches well with my skin type (MAC NC20) wears evenly during the day and is great in the water. It's easily removable with a wipe or make up remover.
Cons: breakouts and the bottle doesn't have a pump
I have had so many foundations over the years, drugstore (Rimmel, Maybelline) to high end (Chanel Pro-Lumiere, YSL) and this one beats them all hands down. I was a little dubious as I hate full coverage, but what I came to realise that it was the foundation that was the problem, not the finish. Double Wear is insanely good. I loves it. I have a tendency to turn red, curse you sensitive skin, but this covers everything, and dare I say it, at times my skin looks flawless. WOO HOO!! Can't recommend it enough.
Like no other
Naturally, foundation is 100% personal preference and works in harmony with individual skin types, so it can be really hard at times to find foundations that really wear well.
For me, after a long journey of many attempts at finding the "perfect" foundation, i stumbled across a BGuru recommendation (really sad that I can't remember the name of her) of Estee Lauder Doublewear.
I can honestly say I will never go back and that this is in truth my second skin of choice.
The coverage is heavy so that could be a downfall to the girls out there who prefer a more lighter feel on their skin, but for a a full felt, airbrushed, flawless look (I use the Sigma F50 to apply) then Doublewear has got the look.
The lasting-factor is...all day, literally. Even forgetting to set with powder it still remains well and truely "there" as the moment it was put on.
I had a tendency to get a little oily across my cheeks at times with other foundations, but again, Doublewear really seems to have covered this...if it's meant to...either that or my skincare regime is doing that for me.
10/10 and won't ever look back.
