Foundation Review

I absolutley love this foundation at the moment!

I think it's fabulous!

It's Estee Lauder's Double Wear Foundation.

It's a liquid foundation, which has SPF10 in it.
(There is also Estee Lauder Double Wear Light foundation, for those who like a more lightweight foundation.)

I've only been using it for about 2 months now.

I heard so many good reviews about it off so many people, so while i was out shopping i took myself into Boot's and had a browse at the Estee Lauder Counter, the woman who helped me was really nice and i asked if she could help me find the right shade of foundation. My perfect match is Pale Almond 2C1 and my shade darker which i use for evening wear is pebble 3C1. This foundation comes in alot of lovely shades.

This foundation is Non-Acnegenic and oil free, as i suffer with acne myself and have combination/oily skin, alot of foundations can cause my skin to have more breakouts than usual or feel quite oily after wearing them, whereas this doesn't.

I apply this product by using a foundation brush, the bottle doesn't have a pump so you need to pour whatever amount you need onto either the back of your hand or onto a palette. The coverage is amazing! It hides every blemish & scar, it makes your face look really flawless but at the same time it's lightweight so it doesn't feel caked on. It lasts up to 12 hours, maybe more, i've never had to retouch this foundation ever, even when i've been in hot/sweaty/busy clubs, it doesn't smudge or come off, it doesn't fade, the colour doesn't change!

Seriously i couldn't recommend this foundation ENOUGH!
I think it's amazing.

It cost me £24.50 for a 30ml bottle, but it's definatly worth it.

Go treat yourself! :)

I have to say I've heard a lot of positive reviews on this foundation. Not tried it myself as my favourite is by Lancome but might be worth a try one time.

I've been looking at this foundation too - I can't decide between it, Dior and Bobbi Brown...

I used this for years! It's fantastic. Never ever let me down.

I changed only because I wanted to by more natural cosmetics.
