Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Review

Hey guys, so here's another foundation review!
I have been using this foundation everyday for the past 2 weeks and I think it's enough time to give my personal thoughts on the product. I bought this for £29 from Boots ( A little pricey huh? ) and in the shade Intensity 1.0.  I think this shade is perfect for me when I haven't fake tanned AKA Au naturel ;).When I was browsing the high end counters in Boots for a new foundation, I kinda knew I wanted something from Estee Lauder. I wanted something long lasting, that didn't cake or go patchy. I have previously used the original Double Wear (in like 3 shades too dark) and so had a bad experience with it. But to find that they do a lighter version of the foundation made me want to give Estee another try.

The packaging is VERY travel friendly, it's actually very small at just 30ml. Even though the foundation isn't in a pretty glass bottle, I feel that the foundation still looks classic and from an expensive brand.
The fact that it's a squeezy tube means that you can get every little bit of product out before chucking it in the bin.
Colour Range
I bought this foundation very quickly, and found it really easy to determine which shade would match my skin tone. I don't think there's a massive range of colours, but it's more like one shade could match a few skin tones.
I would say the finish is semi-matte. I think it's similar to the original Double Wear. I have dry skin, yet I'm still able to wear this foundation no problem. Estee Lauder describe the foundation as "Sheer to light coverage" but I would say it's more light to medium.
This was the most important factor when buying this foundation. This foundation is meant to last 15 hours, and I almost agree with this. Usually after a long day at work my foundation is melting and going patchy on my face. Yet Double Wear Light seems to last all day. I do think the foundation does "fade" throughout the day, and so it just looks like I have less foundation then I did at the beginning (which is expected).

So yea, these are my thoughts on the foundation. I do recommend this foundation to people that want a natural long lasting look. I give this foundation 4/5.
Have you tried any Estee Lauder foundations?

  3. This is definitely something I need to try, I used to adore Double Wear but it's a bit too heavy for my tastes lately and I've had my eye on this - such a good review :)

  4. Sounds amazing, I've wanted to try Double Wear for a while but I'm not big on heavy foundations so this sounds perfect for me! Thanks for such a great review :)
