Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Review

Over the last few years I’ve found it very difficult to find a foundation that I have absolutely fallen in love with. I thought I had found this with Nars Sheer Glow, but over time I found the foundation would set into the dry patches on my skin and therefore I had to move onto something different. I’ve always had difficulty trying to find a match to the Double Wear foundation, so when I asked the lovely lady at the airport to colour match me I was not surprised when she couldn’t. However, she didn’t give up like many others had, she instead told me about Double Wear Light - it still has the coverage I wanted, it just meant it was not so heavy on my skin. The perfect thing for summer! And she was able to colour match me! 

I was sceptical at first, as I could not understand how it would have the same amount of coverage and therefore why they would just not reformulate the original. But I understand why and am very thankful for it. Whilst the light version is not as heavy it also seems to be less runny. It has more of a moisturiser feel rather than a foundation. Personally I prefer to use a brush to buff it onto my face as I feel my fingers do not get the coverage I want. I alternate between my hands and my brush depending on the product, as an example I hate using a brush with my Bourjois CC Cream and instead have to use my fingers!

The staying power of this foundation is also incredible; I work long and hot hours at work. Meaning that I could get a ‘sula’ or two, to quote Wild Child. My make up looks just as good when I finish a shift as when I started it. I find this foundation to be incredible as so far and, (fingers crossed), it has not started to set into my dry patches. 

Hopefully I have found my new ‘go to’ foundation. 

What is your favourite summer foundation?
