Estee Lauder - Double Wear Foundation
The Estee Lauder Double Wear Maximum Cover Foundation has saved me so many times and its definitely the best foundation I have brought so far in all my years of wearing make up. When I am having a really bad skin day and my usual light foundation wont hide my imperfections then I go straight to this, there's been a few occasions when my skin has been really bad and I haven't wanted to leave the house because of feeling down about my skin, but then when I put this on everything's okay. If only I had of heard of it when I was a teenager at school when I needed it most, it really does camouflage your face.
I only use this occasionally when I really need to because I don't like to wear heavy foundations everyday, I like to let my skin breath so prefer to have light to medium coverage on a casual day, but I use this when I need maximum coverage and a more made up face. I have oily to combination skin so I do find that after a few hours my skin goes shiny with or without using this foundation, so now and again throughout the day I use blotting papers or loose powder just to get rid of any excess oil to refresh my face.
I try to apply the foundation fast because it feels a bit like clay and can dry quickly. I put a tiny dot on my forehead, nose and chin then use a foundation brush to blend it in downwards. It also has SPF 15 which is great because even when the sun isn't strong your skin can still be affected from premature ageing, so this gives you some protection.
I have had this foundation for ages, its lasted me so long because you only need to use a small blob, it may cost three times more then your normal drugstore foundation but to me its worth every penny and more because its the only foundation I have found so far to fully cover all my imperfections allowing me to leave the house feeling confident and knowing its going to stay on for up to 12 hours.
