Estee Lauder Double Wear

For years I have been hearing people rave about the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation and how well it stays in place all day even on oily skin. So I really can not explain why it has taken me until now to finally try this foundation out! But I’m happy to say I can now finally see what all the fuss is about!

The Coverage

Double Wear provides a medium coverage that can easily be built up to a heavy coverage. One of the main complaints I hear about this foundation is that it is ‘cakey’ but I personally disagree as I always find it gives me a lovely natural finish. I think that some people might put too much of this on at once which is why I they tend to find it cakey, the trick is definitely to slowly build up to your preferred coverage!

Lasting Power

Without a doubt this is the best foundation I have ever tried in terms of lasting power. While most foundations tens to start slipping off my skin after a few hours, Double Wear is still normally perfectly in place 8 or 9 hours after applying it. I do tend to have a slight patch on my forehead where I would need to fix up, but my t-zone is that oily that I don’t think they will ever create a foundation that truly stays in place on me all day.


Estee Lauder Double Wear does not come cheap but this is definitely reflected in the packaging! The foundation comes in a gorgeous glass bottle that feels and looks luxurious and is a very pretty addition to any dressing table. The main downside to the packaging is that it doesn’t have a pump so it can be hard to measure out how much you need. I have however heard that you can get a pump to fit it (I believe it may be from MAC) so that is always a solution.

  • I haven’t tried this foundation myself, but my mother and sister swear by it! I love your photography in this post, by the way.

    I love this foundation and re: the pump I just bought one off eBay for a couple of quid and it works fine! If you ever find a drugstore equivalent to this let me know!
