I am no makeup guru, but I thought that the time has come to treat myself to some better foundation. This is mainly because my skin has been completely awful recently, so I wanted to switch things up a little bit.
I have heard so many good things about the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation, and I previously used a tester, but just didn’t really wanted to be spending £30 on something which I will be using nearly every day.
Every foundation I have ever used has given my face that orange twang, so I thought that I would actually go and get my foundation matched this time. I popped into my local Boots store during my lunch break and sat down with the women at the Estee Lauder counter. She tried two different shades on my skin, and because I am on the paler side, I decided to go with the lightest shade, 1C1 Cool Bone.
She let me know that there was some kind of offer on, where you by two products and get a free gift, so I decided to do that and get a face powder too in the same shade. The free gift is incredible, but I am not sure I should have spent about £70 to get it! So in the free gift was: a lipstick, mascara, face mask, primer, blusher, moisturiser and advanced night repair.
I am completely in love with this foundation as it fits my skin tone so well, drys quickly and has such a good coverage as well as a little going such a long way. It stays on all day and doesn’t have that ‘cakey’ feeling like I have had with previous foundations. I really think it is worth the price tag, and I think this is now my number one foundation to use. I haven’t used the powder yet, but I’m sure that will be just as good!
If you are looking for a great foundation that drys quickly, has a good coverage and stays on all day, then I could not recommend it enough.
