Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation Review

Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation Review

My first thought: Money. Is it really worth the $43 to test it out? (I was just in Ulta last week and spent $250)

Let’s just say I ended up buying $170 worth of makeup today with the foundation. Go figure.

The foundation though! It glides on seamlessly and is so easy to build coverage with out looking cakey. (I used a foundation brush) I only need one layer to conceal my pigmented skin. (Thank god)

What it’s suppose to do:

  • Oil-Controlling
  • Transfer-Resistant
  • Waterproof
  • Won’t Clog Pores
  • Long lasting
  • What it did for me:
    • Oil-controlling
      Transferred on everything
      Semi waterproof
      Doesn’t clog pores
      Lasted a long work shift

    Tip: I’ll mix in my liquid Becca Shimmering Perfector if I’m not feeling a matte base.

    I wouldn’t say this foundation lasts for 24 hrs, but it could. If you just didn’t move all day. But it beats all the other competitors so far.

    Definitely worth the $43, and will be using this daily!

    NARS vs. IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer

    NARS vs. IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer

    Both are amazing, highly rated, and worth the money. But before digging into your wallet, which concealer is overall the best for you?

    NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer $25

    With 16 available shades and very creamy texture, this mess-free product contains medium/full coverage.

    After testing the product myself, I found that it takes 2-3 dips to cover my stressed eyes. (The bottle won’t last me long)

    However, when applied to blemishes, it works perfectly. It covers very naturally without ending up ‘cakey’. (Great for fixing eyeshadow or brows)

    IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer $26

    I’ve been using this full coverage product for a year now. There are 46 shades and I have yet to find anything better.

    When first squeezed from tube, it has a VERY thick texture. But when rubbed between your fingers, the warmth makes it creamy and smooth.

    It only take one application for me to reach full coverage. Each bottle has lasted me over a month. (Which is very, very rare for me)

    However, I dont reccomend applying this to blemishes, as it CAN cake when applying ‘product over product.’

    *As of right now, I use both. If you don’t have under eye concerns, then NARS all over is the way to go.

    But for others, whose stress shows, Bye Bye Under Eye will cover and brighten your tired eyes 🙂
