Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

Hello everyone! Today I’m going to be talking about this little piece by Estee Lauder – the Double Wear Foundation in the colour Cool Bone. Keep reading to hear my thoughts.

So the other day I was walking around a local shopping centre with my step mum and stepsister, when a lovely lady offering samples in Debenhams approached us. Obviously we went to go collect them and while I was waiting I spied the nearby Estee Lauder counter. I’ve been thinking about getting Double Wear for quite a while, so many people swear by it, but I’ve never plucked up the courage to actually go over and pull out my debit card.


But high on the free samples I got carried away and purchased the Double Wear in the colour Cool Bone. I originally got matched up for the colours Shell and Cool Bone, but with the help of my step mum and stepsister we decided that I needed the warmer shade (thank god I am no longer the whitest shade (woo!))

So what is the hype behind Double Wear? It’s meant to have a natural semi-matte finish with a 15 hour staying power which will stay natural yet flawless all day throughout heat and humidity. It also contains an SPF 10, which is so important to me now when I buy foundations – got to protect your skin everyone! 

So what did I actually think of this foundation? The formula is surprisingly light and creamy, not what I’ve come to expect from a long lasting foundation. As I didn’t want a full on face of makeup, in the summer I tend to go for a more natural look, I only use a tiny dot of this on each of my cheeks, forehead, chin and nose. This foundation blended into y skin so easily and literally looked like it was actually my skin just more flawless and with a more even tone. It didn’t cake on and didn’t let my natural glow be dimmed.

The packaging of this foundation is absolutely beautiful, a classic frosted glass bottle with a gold lid. The only thing I would actually say is I wish this foundation had a pump. It’s the same as with my NARS sheer glow, I like the foundation, but if it had a pump it would be that much better. I like to apply my foundation straight to my face instead of onto my hand, so that would be better. But I still love the foundation anyway.

All in all, I love this foundation. It does exactly what it says on the tin. I wore this foundation to the beach yesterday and it stayed in place all day and didn’t move an inch. Will I repurchase this foundation? Yes definitely. I have a feeling it will become an absolute essential of mine in time.

So there’s my little review of the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation in the colour Cool Bone. I hope you enjoyed reading!
