Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Fresco Review

Hey again!

It seems the winter weather is finally upon us all, and although it may not be cold and frosty yet, we've definitely had more than our fair share of wet and windy weather the last couple of weeks. And as much as I hate all these wintery showers, I am always happy to put my foundation to the test against the elements! Having found my perfect foundation I no longer worry about my coverage lasting all day in winter, I've truly discovered the holy grail of the cosmetic universe. 

What is this magical foundation you're all wondering? I'll let you in on my secret, Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Foundation - my shade of choice is 'Fresco.' 

I've been using Estée Lauder Double Wear for a while now, and I rate this product so highly I've replaced it 3 times! Repeat buying foundations is a rare occurence for me, as finding a foundation that meets my high expectations is like stardust.

This foundation has really high coverage that genuinely lasts all day. Double wear blends out seamlessly with no lines, leaving your complexion even and all your pores appear reduced. Other foundations can be thick, clumpy and look powdery on your skin, but I personally find this one to give a natural finish. You can build this foundation up to get your desired coverage, many people think that double wear is just a heavy duty winter foundation but depending on the amount you apply or whether you mix it with a light moisturiser you can achieve a 'barely there' effect too. 

My skin is super sensitive and used to breakout frequently, I found switching up this foundation into my beauty routine (along with other cleansers and face washes) has really made a difference to my life. Using cheaper drugstore cover ups always made my skin oily and block my pores but this foundation seems to really agree with my skin type! 

Available in a range of tones to suit all skin types, you're guaranteed to find one that's a great match for you. I like to pick mine up in Boots at just under £30, which in my opinion is a great price for such an incredible foundation. Plus if you time your purchase around 'gift time' you can be eligible for free bonus gifts and if you're lucky one of the lovely ladies will throw in a couple of samples for you too! 

I would definitely recommend this foundation to anyone who wants to find a solution for a long lasting cover up. But as a tip, I would suggest getting matched up at one of the beauty counters before purchasing, as Estée Lauder products are highly pigmented and no one likes to spend a little more on a quality foundation to find that the colour is totally wrong for them.

Have you tried double wear yet?
