With a Debenhams gift card to Boot I decided to finally take the plunge and buy me the godfather of full coverage foundations. Estee Lauder Double Wear is a well known gem to the beauty community. Countless of youtuber's use it in tutorials, and I've always been envious of Milly from pearlsandpoodles flawless skin and knew she used this foundation on occasion too.

The only fault I've found with the product so far, was buying it. The sales assistant in the Oxford Street branch was hardly 'selling' it too me, maybe I was giving off signs I was going to buy it anyway, but I felt like I knew more than she did. She didn't really tell me anything about it, she just matched me. Was a little disheartened about that, if I was to buy this out of my own money rather than voucher I probably would've taken my sale elsewhere. As a sales assistant myself, selling the product gets you places.

Regardless, the foundation matched me perfectly, I am in the shade Ecru, 1N2, which in relation to mac shades I'm normally a NC20. The product comes in a glass jar and has no pump. I just put a little on my hand or more often directly on my brush and only need a small amount, despite being thick, on application this spreads evenly then sets on the face. The foundation lasts all day, never would I thought I'd say it but it really does. It also has SPF10 in it which is always a bonus!

This covers even dark undereye circles, and rarely need much concealer under my eyes anymore. It just works and hasn't broken me out either. I'm very very happy with this foundation, and gives me flawless face makeup!

At £29.50 its a bit pricer than previous foundations I've purchased however I'm more pleased with this than studio fix fluid as that does feel heavy on the skin whereas Double Wear doesnt.

This can be found in Department Stores or Boots stores!
